Hmmm...for a couple of years I was in Davenport, Iowa and missed that. But then it was long ago and I had a new baby, etc.
I could be wrong...

If you ever happen to get up that way, right across the river is Davenport where another garden is (Van der Veer).

(Also, I should have requested report done this week).

I loved Van Der Veer Park...that's where I first saw a Jackmanii clematis....still have (somewhere) a pic of my son in Van der Veer Park when he was quite young. As a matter of fact, I loved Davenport. Jer is from Davenport....
