Hi GPODers. This is Joseph, your GPOD editor. I recently took a trip to Stillwater, Oklahoma, and thought I’d share some of the beautiful garden scenes I got to enjoy while there.
My first stop in town was the botanic garden at Oklahoma State University. It was full of a lot of gorgeous things, but I maybe loved this planting the best. In a hot, sunny spot, it was planted up with cacti and other drought-adapted plants.
These cacti are tender and have to spend the winter in the greenhouse. They are a perfect choice for these planters, as they are fine with a small amount of soil that will dry out easily.
My next stop was the great nursery Bustani Plant Farm, which grows all sorts of beautiful and unusual plants and, even better, has a great display garden so that you can see the plants growing. It is such a great way to introduce local gardener to new plants. This section includes many water-wise selections, including this gorgeous Artemisia ‘Silver Bullet’.
