Far Reaches Farm - Not Your Ordinary Nursery

I won't overwhelm you with words.
Pictures will speak for themselves.
I want to recommend a very special nursery for you to visit in the Pacific Northwest - 
Far Reaches Farm in Port Townsend.
The pictures were taken in September 2012. If September was so mesmerizing there, 
can you imagine how it looks in the prime of the season?
The plant inventory is brain shaking and ever changing, and their e-mail letter is enlightening, full of plant information and very entertaining.
Here are the Far Reaches  Facebook Page
and their outstanding Website , including a Plant List and ordering information for those who can't visit the place personally.









Gentiana:





Japanese Blood Grass (Imperata cylindrica)
Persicaria amplexicaulis Golden Arrow:
Zingiber:





Triosteum himalayan (Himalayan Feverwort):








You can read about Far Reaches Farm's plants, in their own words,  HERE.
Enjoy your visit!

  5. What a great selection of unusual plants! Thank you for posting the photos. I think I may have recognized cyclamen and maybe gunnera. So many are new to me. I will save their website and have a closer look when I have a bit more time!

  6. Amazing! It looks like a garden from outer space. What is that enormous, large-leafed plant with the crazy bloom? It looks like a mutant acanthus or something.

  9. hi Tatyana, you weren't exaggerating - that nursery is truly special. I wish I could visit ... in my dreams only, probably. I think the red grass is called Blood Grass. (If it's not, it should be.)

  10. Tatyana! Wow! thanks for the great photo review! The Gentiana "Asiatic Hybrids" on the pond's edge really captured its special qualities. How fun it is for us to see our gardens through someone else's eyes and especially when that someone is a good photographer. Come back anytime!

    1. Hi Les! I bought just one to see how it'll grow in my garden. If it likes my soil, I'll get more. They are beautiful in mass planting.

  12. Love that stand of Cyclamen! I have four in the garden, very small -- might add more if the ones I have don't reseed. What a great place to visit!!
