Well ...I have no doubt that when these on line plant orders reach me come late Spring ... that I will have lost my mind or DID lose my mind when I was drooling over plants and started the .................?
But for now ... deep in snow and never ending winter I am sharing my naughty undoing.
So here comes the list :
Pennisetum alopecuriodes "Piglet" x 2 ... my plan is for my little dry stream bed to have them flank it by the stone work and move out my Fire Island hosta that are full of bullet holes that the snails and slugs fire at it.
These are all pictures from the net !
Next heuchera "Fire Chief"
The cost was very reasonable so I just had to have two to sprinkle on the shade side because the colours are amazing !
Heuchera " Sugar Plum " ... same idea of a sprinkling of two
Eryngium Zabelii " Big Blue " ... aka sea holly ... a totally Halloween flower to me ... I need this fix to look forward to !
Athyrium filix femina " Victoriae " ... an unusally constructed lady fern that just caught my eye and I had to follow through with it ... would you buy that it called my name ?
It was supposed to be a big ticket item in the Victorian time.
Geranium catabrigiense " Westray " .. I really tried NOT to get this one but again that tugging feeling made me do it.
I know I can find very useful purposes for it !
Geranium " Star Man " .. a few years ago when this first came out I was wild to get it ... but never found it. So NOW that I have found it ... I am having it !
Lavandula angustifolia " Ellagance Sky " ... I am collecting this cultivar in different colours so it was a collector's angst to decide on grabbing it ... BIG sigh !
Then a strange twist of fate ... I am not sure who's blog I saw this next older plant in but it just struck me how pretty it was .. it might have been Rose of "Prairie Rose" garden .. my apologies if not !
Monarda Raspberry Wine ... so striking and I have a place on the side of the house where it should do well and have lots of air circulation ... I hate powdery mildew so the jury will be out on this one until it proves itself to me ... but the scent monarda have is so intoxicating !
So .....this is how I spent my cold snowy Saturday .... pouring over on line plants and calculating costs ... placements ? ... but I just know when the plants start arriving that what I will be saying to myself won't be printable on my blog ... lets just say I will quietly murmur "HELL NO!!!!"
