Around The Garden World – Day 65 (Auburn, Alabama)

Today I went to see my son’s college housing – an older home in downtown Auburn, Alabama – and he was eager to show me the interesting plantings around the house. We rounded the corner and I saw this mixture of windmill palm,  camellia bush, and some old vine that had grown up around the everything… and a new take on landscape lighting.

 But a quick drive through the Auburn University campus redeemed my hope in horticulture in a college town – I thought this was a pretty combination of Red Bor Kale, Bright Lights Swiss Chard, Dusty Miller, an ornamental cabbage and pansies.
