Pieris 'Purity'

Pieris 'Purity' is hard to find, especially in any size other than tiny 1 gallon, but they have a unique show of snow flurry type white flowers.

Camellia japonica 'Nuccios Gem'

The white bloom of the Nuccios Gem Camellia is probably the most perfectly structured flower bloom I have ever witnessed. Nuccios Gem has many more petal layers than other varieties of Camellia and the petals are so perfectly distributed that this camellia truly is unique and beautiful.

baby apricots or peaches

We have a fruit tree in the back that I honestly thought was an ornamental pear, like a kawakamii, until I noticed a little pink in the blossoms. Sure enough, there are loads of small fruit growing on the limbs now. I can't tell if it's an Apricot or Peach yet though... Any bets??

orange harvest

Somehow, even with all the rain lately, our orange tree ripened up and we had a one tree harvest today. We have 3 different kinds of oranges, and I believe this orange tree is a bit of a speciosa in that the oranges are small, the seeds are big, and it doesn't seem to be a hybrid or tampered with too much. If you're an orange expert, please chime in!

Pittosporum crassifolium hedge

You usually think of Pittosporum as an ornamental stand alone shrub, but it actually makes an amazing, loose hedge. I love the grey green leaves of the Pittosporum crassifolium.
