Alaska Trip

I didn’t intend to write about the plants I encountered on our recent trip to Alaska, since this trip was primarily to see and visit with one of our indexing clients and to hike and kayak.

Nevertheless I stumbled on the Pratt Museum in Homer, which had a sweet native plant garden

I was pleased to see this native geranium still blooming in mid September, and snapped this shot.  More proof that natives can be just as stunning, nuanced and lovely as any “new” hybrid or cultivar peddled in the garden trade.

That said, here’s a post on some of those hardy geranium cultivars I grow. Compare it to Geranium erianthum!
