A couple of years ago Penstemon Margarita BOP made a splash in Britain.
We seem to be creating a little buzz in Europe. Folks there
interested in what we're doing. Two of them showed up right before
Christmas. An owner of a nursery and his foreman were very interested in
our plants and took a few home. So maybe Arctostaphylos Ramona
, Austin Griffin
or Mama Bear
will show up in French Nurseries in a few years.
He thought where his nursery was in France was hot and dry. They
rarely get above 100F(38C), their last rain in in June or July,
their first rain is in October and their humidities are in the 30% in
dead summer. We thought it sounded just like the Cascades. They were lost for words when they heard our swings.
These guys braved a blizzard in Utah, the Grand Canyon and a stop in Bakersfield before visiting here. They said the Grand Canyon was barren and the blizzard and Bakersfield were scary....
