More gardens on the ANLD Garden Tour

ANLD Garden Tour (Assn. of Northwest Landscape Designers) (Portland, OR) 
I was so excited to see Linda Hannan's garden. I had the opportunity to meet her at the plant sale back in April. She is a garden designer (Hannan Garden Design) and her colorful, exuberant garden is captivating. The front entrance is very shady with an inviting circular space surrounded by hydrangeas and evergreens. A stepping stone pathway leads you along the side of the house to the back garden, which is very sunny.

The back garden - the blue wall brings back memories of our purple wall in Alabama.
I haven't decided how to incorporate one in our present garden. Linda's wall serves as a backdrop for Verbascum nigrum, geraniums, cannas, meadow rue and other perennials. The vine is Golden Hops (Humulus lupulus 'Aureus').

There was so much to see in this garden and when I was looking at my photos, I saw things that I missed when I was there. For example, the columnar exclamation point next to the window on the left (honeysuckle?). I love it - it reminds me of a human figure standing guard over the garden.

The shrub on the left is Leycesteria formosa 'Golden Lanterns'.

The garden of Kristin Ohlson was probably the smallest garden on the tour. I only got a few photos because of too many people. The garden was designed by Amy Whitworth of Plan-It_Earth Design.

The King garden was designed by Bruce Hegna of Nature/Nurture Landscape Design. The selections of plants in this garden just blew me away. I got some great ideas here.

The last garden is the Wagner garden, designed by Helena Wagner of 4 Season Gardens, LLC. This garden had Asian elements and many striking color combinations. I found many plants here to add to my wish list!

Hebe was a plant that we could not grow in the South because of the humidity. I have not
planted one yet but I want this one. I don't know what variety it is.

One plant that I went gaga over was this Hypericum (St. John's Wort) (bottom right). It was absolutely stunning.

ANLD Garden Tour

ANLD Garden Tour (Assn. of Northwest Landscape Designers) Portland, Oregon

On Saturday, we had a great time exploring 7 gardens on the ANLD (Assn. of Northwest Landscape Designers) Garden Tour in Portland. The gardens here were small gardens and we saw all of them! 

Our first stop was at the garden of Kathy Langeliers. Her craftsman bungalow is surrounded by beautiful plants displayed along winding gravel pathways. It was designed by Lucy Hardiman and Susan LaTourette of Perennial Partners.

Okay, not part of the tour. We saw this handsome guy in the garden next door as we were leaving.
Love the color on that hydrangea!

According to the garden map, the oakleaf hydrangea behind the tree is "Snowflake". I have been searching for this and so far, I've had no luck. This is a spectacular hydrangea discovered in Alabama.
