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)

Recently new plantings above the GCA Circle
This little ground-cover rubus (Rubus calycinoides or R. pentalobus) is a large and important element in the space. It's established itself nicely in 2+ years. The golden hostas, on the other hand have a ways to go; they'll be 5 feet across at maturity! Other things you can see are the edges of the "loropetalum island" (on the right), Pennisetum orientalis 'Karley Rose' center, and the "contained planting of variegated bamboo mid picture. There's a potted bamboo sitting on the circle silhouetted by the shady background. The two trees in back are Stewartia sinensis, and Acer palmatum.
