I am a plant collector

I have two parts to my Western WA rose garden: miniature and mini flora roses where I have 3 or 4 copies of my favorite varieties, for exhibiting and flower arranging and the part I call my plant collection. The collection includes unique plants, favorite plants or plants that just would now have grown in Minnesota, my home of 26 years. This gallery shows some of my collection of plants.
