Myths Flora Grubb in Person & Jason
Dewees, Palm Specialist
only for tropical gardens. All palms get too big for small
gardens. Planting palms in the Bay Area will make it look like
LA. If you believe these things are true, give us a chance to
blow your mind!
Garden-design arbiter Flora Grubb and Bay Area palm expert
Jason Dewees will do their best to convince you that palms belong in
our California gardens. After 230 years of European and Yankee
gardening on the West Coast, Californians have only begun to explore
the many roles palms play in gardens-as
durable, architectural foliage; natural vertical elements; animated,
accoustically pleasing canopy; informal hedges;
food-and-fiber-providing plants; and Mediterranean-style mainstays.
See palms anew at the dramatic new location of Flora Grubb Gardens
in San Francisco. And remember, we are talking about small, intense
San Franciso gardens.
