And we end with a glimpse across the back yard towards the greenhouse. The treeform bronze colored Cordyline is a clue we're not in Kansas anymore! More like horticultural Heaven! I was thinking this wasn't the image to end the series on when in an exchange of emails, Kipp sent the following two images of Calochortus weedii v. intermedius just now blooming in his garden: I was there barely a week and a half ago and missed it! I did see C. amabilis earlier this year and lots of others past bloom or in seed: this garden is a repository of these and other choice bulbs as well as succulents.
