Garden of the Week
browse by: name
Connie Devlin brought her passion for plants to Texas when she moved to Austin. The warm weather allows her to grow the tropicals she loves for their outstanding foliage. Since large trees shade most of the garden, she reserves pockets of sun for flowering perennials, succulents and cactus plants. In winter, she protects the tropicals in greenhouses or covered under plastic outdoors under portable frames. Over the garage, she built a greenhouse for large flowering and rare small species of fragrant and unusual orchids.
