Fremontodendron! June 16, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Rebecca Sams from Mosaic Gardens @ 2:45 pm

On every tour there are a few plant names that escape our minds. Usually, the names come back to us before the curious tour-goer leaves the garden, but there are always one or two that take a day or two to return. This year’s top forgotten name was Fremontodendron ‘San Bernardino’ (link to Google photos – we don’t have a good one). It’s a big, gangly shrub with a fuzzy, bronzy leaf and an incredible show of orange-yellow flowers in spring. Ours is in the narrow bed next to the driveway.

I hope whoever asked checks in at the journal!
