Swapping plants for the joy and fun of it

A plant potluck of sorts amassed on picnic tables at South Street’s PHS Pop Up Garden in Philadelphia, the United States, on a recent weekday evening.

Just in time for happy hour, visitors showed up with succulents, eggplant starters, and rubber tree clippings in hand, adding to the spread of hop rhizomes, white flowering Euphorbia Diamond Frost, and other plant offerings already on the table. It was the first PHS (Pennsylvania Horticultural Society) plant swap of the season.
