And why is the plant's name "Dixter"? Because, no doubt, because it was found or developed at Great Dixter, the marvelous home, garden and sales nursery of Christopher Lloyd, the recently deceased (2006) horticulturist and author of numerous books about British gardens, including his. Christopher Lloyd was one of my heroes and his garden continues under the aegis of Fergus Garrett, Lloyd's head gardener. Go online and google for much more on Great Dixter by Christopher Lloyd.
