May Perennial Group Garden Visit

Martha Coutts-Eisenberg opened her garden to the perennial group to the delight of all who attended. A list of plants that were discussed  in Martha’s garden is from Fran Kelly  fr.kelly01@gmail.com  . Here are Fran’s notes (unedited and not re-formatted):

Hi Everyone,

Here is a list of many of the plants that Martha talked about. It is not complete – too much going on. And I have no information on most of them. Sorry, but I am getting too old to hear everything. I’ve checked the spellings, so at least you can pull them up and recognize where they were placed and how they looked in Martha’s gorgeous gardens.

The list begins with the gardens in the front of the house, not including those next to the porch, and proceeds around to the left and then to the back as she walked.

Sorry that I could not be more helpful.   —- Fran Kelly
