Spotlight on Nassau Gardens
Nancy Rho with her yellow Angel's Trumpet
The December selection for “Spotlight on Nassau Gardens” is Nancy Rho’s lovely garden. Nancy and her husband Dr. Tae Rho, a long time Fernandina pediatrician/internist – now retired - have lived in their present home in the Summer Beach area on Amelia Island for 13 years but have lived on the island for 30 years, coming here from South Korea, via New York. Nancy has incredible roses of all varieties, but we chose to photograph her with her beautiful yellow Angel’s Trumpet (Datura arborea). She has another in pink on the other side of the yard. Nancy has David Austin Roses, hybrid teas, climbers, English, floribundas and grandifloras - about 150. She keeps her weeds at bay with palmetto fronds. As with most gardeners, she loves to share information about her garden “children”.
