This seems to be the year I am using up my garden budget money on plants that I have long lusted for ..
Here with known as "The Year of the PLANTS"!!
Green Envy was one I had lusted for ever since I stumbled on it through the net a few years ago. I actually ordered it from one of the "bad" mail order companies that I learned my lesson from .. the disappointment of not getting it after building up that excitement .. well, you know what that feels like (it is better if I don't literally describe that feeling for all of our sakes?)
So .. Botanus, from the west coast of Canada .. even though it is not within my home province of Ontario .. I know they are a safe reputable company .. I did miss out on that rose .. "White Licorice" which I am kicking myself over .. but , here is Green Envy .. hum ? ... is that some kind of karma I wonder ??
First two pictures are from the net .. last picture is my own !
Moving on to something completely different for me .. a bearded iris .. I don't even like these types of iris (sorry to all the iris lovers out there) I like the Siberian form .. more of a "wild" like structure .. easy .. care free ?
BUT .. look at that amazing colour ! .. near black .. and very Halloweeny !! .. yes .. I just had to have it for that reminder .... I have a trick up my sleeve !
I am planting close to my JP Connell rose ... I think the foil of these two will be amazing : )
Soft buttery yellow against that deep violet purple blackish ? colour .. Now that is a show down of colour contrast if ever .. right ?
OK ... I swear I am DONE with ordering plants .. really ... I mean it ... DONE !! I will take pictures of each order and how it arrives along, with tearing my hair out trying to figure the exact perfect place for each one of the new garden babies ? eekkkkk !!
