One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Seasonal plantings around the Adminstration Building at the US National Arboretum
The containers and the tree boxes are looking good, one upside to these insanely above average temperatures. As usual, they're spectacular and studded with uncommon gems. Whilst trolling about in Florida nurseries, I often come upon odd plants and bring them back to Brad from time to time. The pot in the second pictures contains two of these plants, Bismarckia nobilis, the blue fan palm, and Chrysothemis pulchella, the orange and yellow flowered gesneriad below it.
