Profile Website Extra: More photos of Bob Grese’s garden May 7, 2013 • 1 CommentContinued from page 50 of the May 2013 issue. Photos by Sandie Parrott Bob Grese tends to a witch hazel tree (Hamamelis virginiana). Native Americans used the tree bark to treat sores, tumors, skin ulcers, sore muscles, coughs, and colds. Yellow blooms in early spring and yellow fall color make this a beautiful tree. The striking plumes of bottlebrush grass (Elymus hystrix) in late summer are beautiful in any garden setting. Grese grew Yukon Gold potatoes in what is typically called a grow bag. They are great reusable containers for vegetables and now come in many colors and sizes. One of Grese’s favorites is prairie dock (Silphium terebinthinaceum). “I love the broad leaves and tall stalks. The leaves orient on a north-south axis and are wonderful backlit against the sun. The coarse texture is an effective contrast with fine-leaved plants,” he described.
