Teixeira Park Ablaze

Teixeira Park was on fire today. The dozen or so Malus 'Prariefire' trees were in full bloom along the sidewalk in the park.  'Prariefire' was chosen for it beautiful pinkish red flowers in May, but more importantly the dark red fruit which attract birds in the fall.


  1. Hi - I've been a follower of your blog for a while now, but never commented. Love the images of your boxwoods in winter...with the dusting of snow. Great bones in your garden! I really enjoy seeing all the NH public gardens change with the seasons. Thanks for posting photos of those gardens.
    Cheers from zone 7, Wash DC!

    1. Hi Loi,
      I really appreciate your comment. I do love structure in a garden, especially here in NH where the winters are so long. Dunbarton Oaks is one of my favorite gardens, have you ever visited it? Thanks again for taking the time to comment.

  2. M. 'Prairiefire' is one of the top sellers at the nursery, and as you mention, more for the fabulous brilliant foliage than its flowers. It also maintains a delightful stature, not too big nor too small for the mid sized garden. Love! Love! Love! the new header photo as well!

    1. Hi Barry,
      I'm not surprised you like 'Prairefire' or the header photo. I wish I could say that it was from my garden but it was taken at Garden in the Woods, the display garden of The New England Wildflower Society outside of Boston. I am working on my woodland garden and was going there for inspiration. I am not limiting myself to natives and I am also planning to review your blog for ideas for interesting plants. You have profiled some gems.
