Perhaps if whirled in a blender, the mound of spruce-like foliage might be described as "chocolate brown," but intact and up close is an interesting mixture of deep bronze, copper, burgundy, and blue-gray that reddens in the fall. From a distance it is the color of a dark old penny. Tiny yellow flowers in summer. Wonderful companion for a gold or chartreuse stonecrop. Over=winter indoors.
Friends School Plant Sale is a fund-raising event sponsored by the Friends School of Minnesota in Saint Paul. It's held just once each year on Mother's Day Weekend at the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand (map and directions).
