Crookwood Gardens

Like something out of a story book or a child’s imagination, Crookwood Gardens has a hedge maze.

The gardens of Crookwood, home of former Ambassador William H. Crook and Mrs. Crook, will be one of the sites of the 45th Annual Heritage Home Tour of San Marcos. Entrance to the gardens will be through an elegant side gate surrounded by walls laced in foliage to the left of the home, located at 227 North Mitchell Street at the corner of Belvin and Mitchell Streets.

Lemon Coral sedum: Celebrate the flowers

A funny thing happened on the way to May... I have what looks to be a million tiny yellow flowers. It happens every year for about 4 to 6 weeks but no one talks about it some even look away. In fact, Lemon Coral sedum was the 2019 Proven Winners Annual of the Year, yet I don’t remember flowers being mentioned. While I am at it, I will add, I have never had one die either. The truth, or caveat to that, is that I have lived my whole horticultural life in zones 7b-10. In other words, it’s a fairly mild to warm climates.
