On Wednesday morning, Janet and I decided there was no point in staying in bed and sleeping any later than 4:30 a.m., so we jumped in the van and hit the road to the Portland Flower Market. For this trip we were focused on finding houseplants. There are new local growers at the market and the racks of indoor plants were fun to explore.
We found lots of favorites that we haven’t seen in quite awhile and discovered some brand new varieties. The ones that caught my eye are the Nepenthes (Monkey Cup Plants), Euphorbia Flanaganii (Medusa’s Head), and the gorgeous new pinkish Aglaonema (Chinese Evergreens).
If you are on the search for something a little different, or just a dependable old favorite, stop by soon and see what’s in.
