Re: Visit to U.S. Botanic Garden yesterday
Very brave to be out there in the rain... bummer the weather was so gloomy! Yes, back in 2013 they had woolemy pines outside, next to a huge agave americana (blue kind) with pups. They also had a small podocarpus macrophyllum in the same area. I think they all croaked with the last 2 polar vortexes, but can't definitely confirm it (saw pics somewhere, but haven't visited).
The arboretum is fantastic, rain or shine. The Asian section is such an inspiration.
