Plant portraits B-C

What's here?

Lots of plant portraits - and I hope to add many more as time permits.  The plants featured are all past and present denizens of our Lush Gardens.

All of these photos are my own. If you like a photo and would like to use it on your own website, or elsewhere, please read my about portraits page. Please let me know if you disagree with any of the information in the plant details - if my description doesn't sound quite right, I'd like to set it straight.

The list below only includes plants for which I've created a portrait (with pictures). My always-growing plant database contains many more plants, for which I do not yet have a photo (but often with seed-starting tips and trial results, hardiness, and basic information). You can find all of these by using the search feature below. All the plants in my database are ones that I grow or have tried to grow in my garden.

I know all too well that gardeners are always looking for good information about plants online. Standard results from search engines aren't always the most helpful. You'll find two search boxes below - the first one searches in my plant portraits (just in the botanical and common names), and returns just results from The second one launches a custom Google search that emphasizes sites I find to be better at providing useful information to gardeners. Good luck finding what you're looking for!
