This isn’t a regularly scheduled column, but wanted to put out a quick reminder and promo for the biggest Portland garden show of the year, Hortlandia. The annual event is wrapping up today, after a weekend at the Portland Expo Center. Mark your calendar for next year, if you missed the 2018 show. It’s the best place in the city of Portland to see all of the region’s best plant vendors under a single roof. It’s free if you take the MAX and $8 if you park.
Also, this is just a great excuse to post photos from yesterday!
If I had more sun, this would go home with me.
Not from Hortlandia, but there are plenty of vendors with this for sale.
Look forward to a full succulents on the patio column later this summer.
Sedum Chicks have some great options for patio art in sunny spots.
Now, this is a lupine!
Pitcher plants for the patio. Carniflora PDX was in the house! Column coming this summer!
Cobra lilies, a shade-loving meat eater.
A weird Chinese mayapple hybrid.
Aloes work for anyone with a sunny window. Just don’t water much!
As always, thanks for visiting Gay Gardens! And make sure to check me out on Instagram!
