PNW exotic garden 8b
By Palm crazy
Here is Dan Hinkley's garden in WA state. The garden is close to Puget Sound and is a solid 8b garden. 7 acres of garden and nursery at his home. This garden is overwhelming with rare and unusual plants. This is just one type of garden style here. Hope you enjoy the pics.
Sunquat/Lemonquat Variegated New Branch
Here is my sunquat/lemonquat that has recently added a new branch which is variegated. It showed virtually no damage after our ultimate low of 20º F this past January. I grew it from seed and the mother plant showed no variegation. Is this common? I have had other plants purchased as variegated plants (such as Chinese privet - Ligustrum sinense 'Variegata') which often has normal new growth as they tend to revert back but I've never seen the opposite before.
