Here is a short video I took last week at the National Cathedral in northwest Washington, DC. At the base of the Bishop's Garden is my favorite part - the purple bed. Can you name all the plants in the bed? I'll give you a head start. Here are five to look for: Russian Sage, Balloon Flower, Borage, Clematis, and Anise Hyssop.
BTW, if you are reading this post anywhere else on the Web aside from the Washington Gardener Magazine blog, you likely won't be able to see the actual video. To watch it, go directly to washingtongardener.blogspot.com.
