Strongylodon macrobotrys

March 3, 2011

About 8 years ago there was a terrible winter night when the heat went out at Allan Gardens Conservatory. Their much loved Jade Vine perished in the cold. Lucky for us, they managed after several years to find a replacement. Now that it is thriving in two locations in the conservatory (a way to prevent its loss in future) it is showing its colours again.

Like an actress on the red carpet, it is studded with turquoise jewels. It really is a botanical celebrity.

If you are hosting a garden related event in the GTA and would like it covered in or would like to place an e-poster about it on our Events Calendar, just contact me. I am always delighted to promote anything gardening in Toronto.
