Garish, chancy, new … bring it on, Avent says
Maine Sunday Telegram - 2/19/2012.
By Tom Atwell – Opinionated people expand your horizons. You don't have to agree with their opinions, but you at least have to think about what they say, and sometimes that will open your horizons. Tony Avent, founder and owner of Plant Delights Nursery in North Carolina, loves bright and gaudy plants, loves to push the hardiness zones – the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture revision backs him up on that – and likes to bring new plants to the market.
