I fell in love with two plants I’d never seen before when I was at Longwood Gardens last week. Unfortunately, neither was labeled. Sure, I could email Longwood to beg for IDs, but I thought I’d ask our loyal GPOD readers first! After all, those Longwood gardeners are super busy watering at the moment. It’s hot down there!
The first is an intriguingly architectural succulent in the student exhibition gardens. The second, in a container in the idea garden, looks vaguely like an oxalis, but I don’t think that’s quite it. Whatever it is, it’s a stripey masterpiece!
