Joy Creek Nursery

Continuing the posts on my recent visit to Oregon and Washington with some unabashed flower porn courtesy of the display gardens at Joy Creek Nursery, a retail and mail-order nursery in Scappoose, Oregon.

I went a little crazy with the Rudbeckia hirta photos. Fascinating differences from each one to the next were as mesmerizing as an unfolding fireworks display.

    Ahhhh, the diversity – something for everyone – I knew they still had to have clematis in bloom there — thanks for fulfilling my wish to see some of them. Yum. – Cindy H.

    Yep, like I said before, dream vacation! 🙂

  7. Lovely shots of the Rudbeckia cultivars, one of their specialties. I had some a few years ago that reseeded multiple years, but have now faded away (or been ruthlessly and mistakenly weeded out in spring.) Glad you enjoyed your visit to one of our favorites!

    Gorgeousness! I remember that Rudbeckia hirta display from last July when I was there. I was smitten too.
