In this episode, Daniel, Carol, and expert guest Catherine Cook explore plants that have special meaning or associations with their loved ones. Whether it’s a dogwood that provides plants to share with others, a native orchid that’s worth a long drive to see growing in the wild, a buttery-colored rose, or a “ganglion by a stone wall.” plant” that Danielle’s husband especially loves, these plants will surely make you think about the memories, stories and connections that make certain plants in your garden mean to you.
