Who is the Man - He is the Man
Hip, Hip, Hurrah!
Happy Birthday! Mr. Magnus B. Nilsson
The famous Swedish nurseryman that celebrate his 105th birthday today.
The gardener and breeder who is the "father" to one of my favourite perennial flower, the Rudbeckia ‘Magnus’ Echinacea purpurea. The Rudbeckia ‘Magnus’ was the plant of the year in 1998 both here in Sweden as well as abroad. I just love this perennial coneflower with the most fascinating colour combination. The rusty centre combined with the pale cerise coloured silk-like petals. It is not just we people that enjoyes Rudbeckia ‘Magnus’, so does the butterflies and bees too, they love it.
