Planting with Julie – our Plant Sale specialist

JulieWasatch Community Gardens is fortunate to have such amazing talent on our Plant Sale team.  Julie is an extraordinary example of this talent.  Not only is she a dedicated Perennial specialist for the Plant Sale, she is also an active board member for Wasatch Community Gardens. Julie provided the following insight to her success: How long have I been gardening?  15 years! What is my favorite plant?  My favorite sun plants are Ornamental Oregano.  The unusual cascading paper-like flowers just call out to be touched to release a spicy aroma.  You would think such a beauty would be fussy or brief but it’s easy to grow, blooms all summer long and is a keeper in dried flower arrangements. My favorite shade perennial is the Toad Lily.  When the garden is winding down in the fall, this showstopper is literally bursting with delicate speckled orchid-like blooms.  And despite it’s exotic appearance, it is tough and hardy. What the Wasatch Community Gardens’ Plant Sale means to me? The name says it all – local, community connections, & get in the dirt to grow your own.
