Marsha has done our logo, cover, and plant illustrations for over 14 years, but she is also a printmaker, selling her detailed etchings in galleries on the Northern California coast and at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Her prints are done in the age-old intaglio style: hand-drawn on copper plates, individually inked and printed on a press, then signed and numbered. Printed on good quality archival paper, each etching is mounted on foam-core board and wrapped in acetate for protection. There is a description of the etching process on the back, along with a Certificate of Authenticity. These plant etchings are limited editions of 100 prints each.

Spring salutations, early blooms, fresh unfurling foliage!

These early blooming vines and shrubs herald spring!

A choice deciduous shrub for an adequately moist woodland setting, Corylopsis pauciflora offers dangling fragrant primrose-yellow blooms amid graceful branches. The Flowering Current produces long lasting richly colored flowers, bird-friendly berries plus eye-catching autumn color. It thrives in both sun or part shade and handles some drought. 

Easily grown Clematis alpina ‘Constance’ is a small-statured climber that can be showcased in a tight spot or in a patio container. Beloved by gardeners since 1900, Clematis armandii ‘Apple Blossom’ combines lustrous evergreen foliage with copious vanilla-scented blooms, while appreciating a sheltered abode. Both these vines make lovely additions to early spring bouquets.

Spring Salutations!

We’ve been drenched with nearly 60 inches of rain here at the nursery. All that moisture coupled with several warm sunny days, has turned the garden into a verdant wonderland of unfurling shoots, leaves and blossoms. The perennials photographed in this newsletter were taken this week, either in the garden or in our open-sided greenhouses.

Happy Spring and happy digging!
