A wise woman once said ... schefflera lovin'
My tale for today started years ago reading gardening blogs from the UK and drooling over all the hardy scheffleras. Fast forward a couple of years where one Mrs. Danger visits Mark and Gaz and tells of all the beautiful scheffleras growing in their garden. That pretty much brings me to present day and the wisdom in which my post is inspired. When asked by her husband Andrew how many schefflera they needed, danger (Loree) replied: "as many as Mark and Gaz have" (danger garden). And in that same spirit I say of the same question: "as many as danger has!!"
And with that I find it only fitting to introduce the latest and greatest addition to the garden ... Schefflera brevipedunculata!!
I just love this little beauty of a schefflera.
I still don't know where it will go and will keep you all posted. But I was just so very excited that I had to share.
