Oh WOW, you got Papa Goose! That has been on my wish list for a while. Well they are a couple so I think it would be fine. I would love to see your pics.

I did get to meet Heidi. She was very friendly.

The very best time to go is for their Open House which is usually the first weekend in June. The provide a wonderful lunch and the plants are at peak bloom. Charles and Heidi are happy to let you take a peek at their seedling beds and the plants they have that are being watched for future introductions. My suggestion is bring your checkbook, or credit card, drive a big vehicle with plenty of room and enjoy this beautiful place (my Disneyland). I PROMISE you will NOT be disappointed!!! Rolling my eyes. Hurray! Thumbs up Hurray!

I bought several of their intros in early June. Here are the ones that have bloomed. I stress these are not the best blooms because they are the first blooms on the plants.

I'm Gonna Love You Through It


Coastal Grand was a bonus.


I got Papa Goose too, but it did not scape. I do have The Color of Wonderful getting ready to bloom, so I'll try to post pics of it.

Teresa - Yes, I ordered directly from Browns Ferry Gardens. They sent very nice plants with multiple fans.

Becky - Thanks! I would expect those to look much better next year.
