I visited a friend’s garden the other day and admired her tomatoes. They were Indigo Rose, a variety bred by Jim Myers at Oregon State University. I took one home since I was so impressed with how lovely the fruit is. My review: love the color, but not the taste.
I’d love to use this tomato ornamentally, however. As I looked at my Brugmansia this morning I imagined how great it would be to place this pot in the garden surrounded by a bunch of Indigo Rose. Maybe next year Annual Alley should be done in black and white…
Playing with color is one of the joys of gardening.
