Beautiful color, exotic blooms and flamboyant foliage at Congo Nursery

February speaker Baxter Williams recommends Congo Nursery in Pasadena for roses, and “oh, they have other plants too.” Do they ever! Donna Marie arranged a field trip and we came back with car loads of happy and healthy plants.

It’s not a big nursery, but the plants are healthy, happy, and interesting, and there’s a nice collection of pottery and ornaments. Best of all the owner and her daughter are helpful and knowledgeable.

As promised the selection of roses was amazing. The 2023 list is 3 pages long!

A highlight of Woodlands Garden Club field trips is “the lunch” and this one was another fabulous destination, Pine Street Cafe at Silver Sycamore.

An after lunch stroll through the western-inspired town of Sycamoreville, the onsite B&B, and beautiful gardens were the perfect ending to a perfect day!
