Fine Gardening’s January/February 2018 cover story will feature the display beds at Singing Tree Gardens Nursery in McKinleyville, California. This beautiful spot is about 300 miles north of San Francisco, a few miles inland from the Pacific coast. Here are a few extra photos that we couldn’t fit into the magazine feature.

I couldn't help but be intrigued by the star of the first photo, 'Hupp's Single Snake' noble fir. I'm not sure if I like that unusual growth habit but it did get my attention and sent me off on a google search to read more about it. I guess the one in the photo is an example of how it looks in maturity. Do any of our more adventuresome gpod-ers grow it?
I can check the box of total enthusiasm for the evergreens in the 3rd picture...a lust worthy trio, for sure.
Wow! i want all those beautiful combinations in my property!
The weeping hemlock reminded me of Cousin Itt.... : )
I had the same reaction as Beth to the weeping hemlock! I have looked online at Singing Tree gardens website, but the shipping charges to the east coast hold me back. The post doesn’t say what zone the hardy fushsia is hardy in! Thanks.
Oops, I just saw the zone...sorry
Lush and lovely! Number for is my favorite
I love that you've shared these extra photos from the shoot. They're awesome. I've visited the Singing Tree website: it's nice to have a virtual visit of their beautiful display gardens.
I love the gleaming white bark of the Himalayan birch and the deep jewel colours of the Hydrangea 'Preziosa'. Why is my garden already so full? Alas.
What a treat today! I sure enjoy seeing new to me conifers! Iam currently making room for some and these would be fantastic! All these combinations are well worth doing for sure! Thanks for sharing these with us!
Beautiful mix of colors, textures and shapes in your garden. Definitely a "fine garden"!
Beautiful combination of plants. Thanks for sharing! I somehow missed this post until now. Especially like all the botanical names and zones.
