NPR junkies know that Portland garden writer Ketzel Levine has been reporting on gardens and plants for some time now. This morning she contributed a piece on gardens and climate change that included an interview with Tony Avent and a profile of one plant that’s doing much better in the Portland area thanks to climate change–hebe. (the flowering shrub, not the goddess of youth pictured here.)
Ketzel’s already wondering whether the Native Plant Police are going to jump on her for promoting the merits of a non-native shrub. Are tedious tirades forthcoming? And if so, will they comply with the polite but firm rules for discussion aimed at keeping diatribes, vulgarities, and personal vendettas out of the NPR blogosphere?
That’s right, people. Keep it clean over at NPR. If you’ve got something filthy, vile, or indecent to say, save it for GardenRant.
