On this cold wintery day, we’re looking back to early summer when frequent GPOD contributor Cherry Ong was visiting Toronto and went on some garden tours.
Enjoy this beautiful, inspiring garden!
False indigo (Baptisia australis, Zones 3–9) is showing off its beautiful purple flowers. This native perennial can be slow to establish, but once it settles in it is long-lived, tough, and drought tolerant.
A beautiful planting in a small shaded area includes clouds of hardy geraniums (Geranium hybrid, Zones 4–8) showing off in the foreground.
This looks like it could be the popular variety ‘Festiva Maxima’, which was introduced in 1851 and is still popular and going strong thanks to the beautiful flowers, strong fragrance, and ironclad disposition.
