Friday Favorite: Labeled Plants

June 21st, 2013

One of the things I really enjoy about visiting botanical gardens is that many of the plants have labels.  I find myself taking photos of plants and their labels in order to hopefully add a few of my favorite varieties to my own garden someday.  Here are a few that caught my eye this past Tuesday when we visited Kingwood Center.

Even though I always do this with hopes of adding a few of these plants to my garden, it never really seems to materialize. At least I know which plants are in my photos, which comes in handy sometimes for plant identification and for selling photos.

Have you ever spotted any must have plants while visiting a botanical garden?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
