I have been in Southeastern Pennsylvania for a week.  Waaah!  Such amazing chamaecyparis, enormous Japanese Maples, Golden Rain or Golden Chain tree (I can’t wait to figure out which) Rhododendron and Azalea as big as trees, Beech forests….Okay, I love it here, but oh!

Yeah. We can grow chamaecyparis here, and in a good year, they are the most beautiful evergreen plants in the gardens, but in a bad year, they look like dawgs all season long. In Maryland, they take your breath away…in front of Denny’s.

It isn’t fair is it. Like most of FG’s articles always seem to feature gardens on the balmy Eastern seaboard or the Pacific Northwest. Some of this stuff does okay or is marginal in the Midwest.
