4 Things to Check Out Now

The May/June issue of California Gardener is out and, lo and behold, inside of the back cover is a piece written by none other than yours truly. As you might guess, I'm terribly excited and couldn't be more proud. Click here to check it out!

Also in this issue is a brief article about the new Itoh peonies. Yes, it's true, peonies are not terribly easy to grow for those of us who already enjoy the majority of garden blessings, including warm winters (although I do have a few tricks up my sleeve to give certain plants the chill they require) and they are also a thirstier plant than I usually promote... Ohhh, but the loveliness that is the Peony! And these hybrids are just what one wishes for in a gorgeously romantic flower. Take, for example:

Paeonia x 'Kopper Kettle'

Paeonia x 'Julia Rose'

Paeonia x 'Bartzella'

Well, a girl can dream, can't she? Ok, back to our regularly scheduled programming. Salvias and succulents anyone?
