I have been have a "MENTAL" here trying to do a quick post before I hit the ground running yet again today .. I am wearing to the quick, so please forgive the many mistakes I might be making here ?
I have beautiful pictures of my darling Karley Rose (pennisetum alopecuroids) but this one is a site picture taken off on the fly .. Karley is a wonder to me, and I absolutely LOVE her ! The zone was a touchy one because it is rated 6 in much of her descriptions but she has graced me in our back garden and I am going for gold to establish her in my front to show her off.
Now for a little guy I have been wanting since I stumbled on him last year .. one of the hakonechloa (macro) Beni-Kaze .. can you see why he has made me fall in love with him 'fall" is the trick word .. leading to Autumn and these FABULOUS colours he paints himself in !! His manner is very pleasing as well : ) I hope to have a long and happy relationship him : )
Panicum virgatum " Cheyenne Sky" .. what can I say ? .. an absolute beauty and I must have a chance to see how she does .. will she live up to my expectations ? will I be able to get through her growing pains until established (some what like Beni .. his larger unrelated sister who is also new my 'grass" family) ... will they whisper supportive rustles in the wind to each other ? .. good grief I hope so !!
What would a good Canadian garden be without some plant in it called "Northern Lights" (deschampsia caespitosa) quite a mouthful of descriptive words ?
I have been mooning (OK .. get your mind straight out of the gutter .. especially YOU Mr. WiseA** !!) I ran across this one a few years ago .. longed for it .. and now I am just determined it will be mine this year !
If you have spotted the connecting characteristic of all these grasses .. mention it if you are so kind to post ? .. I'm sure you all "get it" about me and a certain look to these beauties >
Wink Wink : )
