It’s so nice to have a “resident horticulturist” on staff!
Questions on the many beautiful flowers and plants we have throughout our property always seem to stump me. Luckily, we have Andy, our general manager, who quickly comes to the rescue every time with his encyclopedic knowledge of floriculture and all things “Ocean’s Reach.”
For instance, guest Jack D. from Evanston, IL sent in this photo recently inquiring as to what type of flower grows outside our tennis and pickleball court.
In his typical lickety-split fashion, Andy answered: “It is a Dutchman’s Pipe Vine. A host plant for Polydamas butterfly, as well as a nice backdrop for our tennis players.”
What would we do without him? (We never want to find out!)
