Edgeworthia chrysantha ‘Red Dragon,’ one of the Garden’s most asked about and sought-after plants. It’s not easy to find in the nursery trade. And while I’m not sure it will be available at the sale, there’s a good chance it will be. Go find out! Photo courtesy of the Portland Classical Chinese Garden.

This sale is one of the spring’s best, with an inspiring gathering of some 20 of the Northwest’s best small nurseries selling hard-to-find, collectors plants, mostly of Chinese origin, including favorites that are most commented upon and asked about in the Chinese Garden.
