Sad News to share

greg

We are sad to report that Greg Hulbert passed away early in the morning on Sunday, April 13. His diagnosis of pancreatic cancer was recent and its progression swift. He was being cared for by family and hospice and was often surrounded by friends in his final weeks.

For twenty-three years Greg dispensed plant I.D. and advice from the Info Desk at Stark. His knowledge of plants was vast and his love of them boundless.

A past co-worker said she would like to imagine Greg is now in a peaceful garden-setting somewhere, a glass of single-malt in one hand and his Felco pruners in the other. We like that image too.

Greg will be greatly missed, and our thoughts go out to his family and his many friends.

April Features

Identify & Treat the Azalea Lace Bug

Azalea Lace Bugs were first documented in Oregon in 2009, but they were not a huge problem until 2012-13. Lace bugs are now very widespread and most everyone who owns azaleas and rhododendrons in Portland has a Lace Bug problem. Because of this, azaleas can no longer be considered carefree, inexpensive plants.

We've added a page with identification and solutions to this invasive bug. See the whole article.

New Plant Combo for April

PhloxRedWing300

All great gardens include a good bit of hardscaping, in fact, your urban garden probably has hardscaping features that you don’t even think of as features. Most houses in Portland are raised above street level, so what happens on a rocky slope or concrete retaining wall? Check our feature for suggestions for Cascading Perennials.

Native Pick for April

philadelphus300

One of the loveliest, but remarkably underused, natives of the late spring/early summer is our native Mock Orange, Philadelphus lewisii.
