this summer i visited joy creek gardens in the pacific northwest on a clem trip i made to see silver star, joy creek and the brewster rogerson collection. silver star and joy creek's display gardens were to die for. the brewster collection (formally named Friends of Brewster Rogerson Collection or similar) was confusing as most of his huge collection isnot yet planted out, still in a greenhouse.
however, the other gardens were not confusing and really awe inspiring.
here are a few from joy creek that i think you will enjoy. if so, i can post the silver star ones later in the week. the purple and gold combos had me home and re envisioning a few things around here!

Unbelievable beauty! The Alionushka, according to Joy Creek's catalog, gets up to 7 ft. tall. Yes, I would love to have this one!
When I first heard about integrifolias, I thought they were short, bushy type clems. I didn't realize that so many get that tall, or long. Now that I'm interested in them, I'm trying to decide where they will best fit into my gardens. I'm told that they should do well in the S.E.
Thanks for sharing so many gorgeous photos with us!

Joy Creed Nursery is in Oregon, but not far from WA. It's a great place to spend a day. Such a nice setting for it. Glad you had a nice trip.

I've got to stay off this forum. I'm getting tempted to buy more! :shock:

It's easy to confuse WA and OR when you're in both cities on the border.

Guru, I never get tired of looking at your photos. I have ordered several integrifolias from Debbie at SSV and can't wait to see what they do next spring! I especially love the blues and pinks.
