I’ve been trying to get the essence of Peggy Martin into a photograph.
I’ve been trying to get the entire plant into one photograph.
It’s not possible.
I think this is hilarious.
You want to feel smart? Like you know what you’re doing? Plant a Peggy Martin.
But you have to have a lot of room.
This specimen was started by me from cuttings the summer of 2012; planted in our new yard either December 2012 (unlikely, as we moved after Thanksgiving 2012, too late to plant) or more likely spring 2013. I’ll scare up pictures from last year. She made a nice effect then, but now she’s a behemoth. A lovely, thornless behemoth.
