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.

Our Featured Plant: Hydrangea quercifolia ‘Snowflake’

Click here to view our latest newsletter: Ogle over Oakleaf Hydrangeas, November Pizzazz, Late Season Sale Extended!

Ogle over Oakleaf Hydrangeas...

Large showy conical panicles and bold unmatched foliar texture are the hallmark of these stylish long-lived deciduous shrubs. Perfect for fresh or dried arrangements, the well-endowed lacy blooms unfurl in ivory to dusky rose shades from July through late summer. Broad lobed dark green leaves remain evergreen in warmer climates and signal autumn with cozy scarlet and burgundy tones. Appreciative of dappled afternoon shade, Hydrangea quercifolias boast easy-care habits, handle occasional dry conditions and respond readily to pruning. Be sure to check out our Oakleaf Hydrangea selections in the shrub section of our website. 

November Pizzazz...

November’s shorter days and cooler nights have ignited the garden with spectacular foliar color. An array of woody plants coupled with herbaceous perennials and ornamental grasses promote an abundance of beckoning late season pizzazz. The plants included in this newsletter afford either ample berries, late blooms, commanding leaves or tasteful branching patterns.

Happy Digging from all of us Plant Wranglers!
