The Plants Are In The Mail!

Time to rototill...

We are FINALLY going to dig up our back yard this Friday and plant the things we brought with us. When I started going through the pots I found several that didn't survive. So I got online tonight and ordered some replacements! These are the first plants I've gotten since autumn of 2004!

Of course, I snuck in a couple new plants and replaced a few that we had to leave behind.

Cistus 'Snow Fire" is a new rock rose hybrid. We have a southern exposure here, so it will be great to add some sun-lovers.

This is a twining perennial in the campanulaceae family. It has large blue flowers and when tilted upwards you can see the intricate markings. The only drawback is, when bruised, it can be quite stinky!
Codonopsis clematidea

Corydalis ochroleuca is a great shade plant with yellow- to cream-colored blooms. This plant makes a nice foil to the standard blue corydalis. Mine didn't survive the move.

This plant *did* survive the move but I've always been unhappy with it's spindly shape. I want nice full shrubs! I need to take a class on pruning. Here is Eleotherococcus sieboldianus 'Variegata'.

Lilium formosanum is a lily that enjoys heat, flowers the first year from seed and eventually reaches 7'+ tall with a dozen or more 10" long, sweetly fragrant, pure white flowers in early August! I only ordered one but I will enjoy waiting for the multitudes to come.


I ordered 2 lobelias. Some of mine lived through the freeze; these did not.

Nicotiana sylvestris is an annual but the one I left behind came back year after year. It is one of the sweetest smelling plants - particularly in the evening - and it attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. The flowering tobacco is a native of Argentina.

Fountain grass is also considered an annual in our area but makes such a fabulous container plant that it is well worth the $$. There are many varieties that are frost-hardy but none have matched this one for overall effect in both structure and color. The picture doesn't do it justice - the inflorescences on my plant were even darker.
Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Moudry'

From Peru, Salvia corrugata is another tender plant but I've included it in my garden for the absolutely stunning rugose foliage (I love that word, it sounds like an Italian entrée ;-). The vivid deep blue blossoms with violet calyxes are a bonus.

As Tom is fond of saying, I never met a nursery I didn't like.

To be continued.
