Garden Tours:  Valleylynn, Lynn SmithGarden Tours: Valleylynn, Lynn Smith
By Sharon on November 12, 2011

Let's take a trip this week to Oregon and visit the lovely gardens created by Lynn Smith and her husband, Cliff. It's always fun to step out of our own climate to see what grows well in another, and sometimes it's even more fun to see what our climates have in common. You are going to love what you see!

Tolerates cold (zone 5, CO), being ignored, and being moved 3 times in the middle of the summer! Great rose, very forgiving. No scent unfortunately.
