They have a good selection of more unusual tropical and subtropical plants, including Dracaena goldieana. I have been in love with this plant for something like 12-15 years, so I think I deserve one after finally finding a retail source.
Naturally, a plant should never travel alone. I selected a couple travel buddies for my new dracaena: Begonia 'Little Brother Montgomery' and Ardisia japonica 'Hakuokan'. I'd been wanting the begonia for about a year now, so that was a natural choice. The ardisia intrigued me, so I did some research and it appears to be reliably hardy in the PNW. I have no idea if the deer will leave it alone or not, but I decided to take a rare chance.
The plants arrived in perfect condition, hardly even a broken leaf, and well-sized for mail-order. I am definitely a happy customer.
|I could hear a sigh of relief as I released these plants from their wrappings.|
|The new growth on the ardisia starts out pinkish green with pink variegation before maturing to a beautiful bright green and creamy white. I don't know where I'm going to put it, but I'm happy to have it!|
|Begonia 'Little Brother Montgomery' forms a caudex at the base, a woody, tuberous growth from which the stems arise.|
|I love the jagged leaves of greenish-silver and burgundy.|
|I absolutely adore the patterns and colors on the Dracaena goldieana. The leaves seem to be developing more color as the plant grows.|
|Flattening the box into submission, Mitzy the Grouch reins over her kingdom. In case you're wondering at the appellation, she's been called Satan on two separate occasions. Not the friendliest of felines.|
