Pow Wow Wild Berry echinacea .. When I wrote the post this morning I forgot to add this one sun lover echinacea .. I fell in love with it and is also part of the same order .. I couldn't resist it!
Once again I have to say right off the bat ... these pictures are from the net .. they are not mine .. ergo if they were mine, it would mean I already have these plants .. I do not .. so that is Tuesday morning's logic cleared for the day !
I'm excited .. as only other gardeners can really understand .. EXCITED !!!
I have just put in an order for these plants at a new mail order company about 3 hours away from Kingston called " Gardens Plus " .. I was on e-mail tag yesterday with Dawn from this company. Customer service from the start has been great and that gives you the first inkling of how well this company will perform for you .. so I am a happy gal ... so far ;-)
The end result when I receive these plants in the Spring .. well that will be the final grade point for this company.
Why did I order these plants ? .. because I am afraid I won't find these particular ones that I either need to add to a collection and or have been totally sold by their description and pictures and like any other "o-holic" I have to HAVE them !!!
All are shade plants .. since my garden is becoming shadier and shadier .. and the attributes of some plants such as "Majeste" pulmonaria is that ghostly aura ? silvery shine to join my "Moonshine" pulmonaria .. a partner in crime ;-)
The heucherellas ... well Redstone Falls .. I was hypnotized from the first time I stumbled on it .. the vigorous growth .. the colour .. all of it .. perfect !
Gunsmoke was also a new one .. and there was just something about that colour going with that leaf .. sold me right away !
Emerald Mist brunnera .. what can I say other than I have quite a good collection going so as I was missing this one .. it had to join the "herd" ? .. I'm still not sold on Stain Glass but it might sneak in there eventually.
So .. there I am ... trying out a new local company .. doing my best to support my area .. and loving the assurance that plants I have drooled over will be coming my way ..
I am a HAPPY gardener today !! .. now if only SPRING would start moving here ???
