Salvia greggii and Salvia darcyi in new garden The first plants were planted earlier this summer and they are looking GOOD, I must say. They are, of course, Plant Select choices (as are many of the first plants installed thus far), but there is far more to this garden than just these! I am very...Read more
Haemanthus multiflorus This little honey is South African, and no...Mike Kintgen does not believe it is hardy (he lifts the bulbs before hard frost): but what a spectacle this magnificent Amaryllid makes in the South African Plaza! I have seen Brunsvigia and Haemanthus in South Africa, where they...Read more
Salvia darcyi and other colorful treasures There are actually several fine clumps of Salvia darcyi at Kendrick Lake, this one combined with wonderful, bright complementary plantings that exemplify this amazing garden. I will be watching to see how it comes through the winter here. Pennisetum...Read more
There are a few days in June when you can finally declare "Spring is over": usually after a week of 90F heat, when your garden is wilting. This date does not come directly on the Solstice: it can fall early in June. For me it was this morning: my garden at home that had been magnificent for months...Read more

There are plants to tend, businesses to run, articles and blogs to write (and if you read his blog, there's a rescued puppy named Jarrah who's always ready to play), and certainly an appreciative audience anywhere there are gardeners in the west. We are so...Read more
I can tell gardening season is here, not just by the brilliant sunshine, the gardeners eager to get started, the students jumping into classes that they'll use next week, the plant sale and the shoppers, or the colleague rashly vowing to start his peppers outdoors this weekend in spite of frost...Read more
[gallery orderby="title"] Its when it gets cold that you appreciate warmth. Thick socks, long underwear, hats with ear flaps and home-knit scarfs become some of my favorite things. Standing over the heat vent while the furnace is running is not far behind. But here in Denver, we're fortunate to...Read more
This is the season of inspiration. I know everyone talks about gardening in the spring, but this is the time of year that motivates me. Every garden has come into its own. Yards, parks, estates, landscapes: by now you know what they are going to be. Thick slabs of watermelon, backlogs of zuchini,...Read more
Rocky Mountain Gardening is just that--gardening through the length of the Rocky Mountains, which means that the climates are vastly varied. Denver is a mile above sea level and seems dry and windy, but compare that to the top a fourteener (that’s a mountain reaching 14,000 feet)! I’ve already...Read more
