I am so tired from today's adventures in my garden .. pajamas and fuzzy Pink robe.
But .. I thought I would post on some of the little plant wonders I have cuddled all the way home from an unplanned adoption spree ?
First .. Myosotis Alpestris "Blue Ball' One year I had what was labeled "Italian Bugloss" .. I fell in love with it but have never found that exact one again. I think this one will look almost as good though !
Next is an Alpine Balsam called Erinus Alpinus "Doctor Hahnie" .. I can't bring up that exact cultivar for some reason but this one from Annie's looks quite good !
Compinkie Rock Cress .. arabis x arendrii"compinkie' .. the front garden bed could use to little wonders .. and I think this might work out quite well !
Along with Royal Red Aubrieta ... I think I really should get another one of those !
Funny enough a little container, with what was supposed to be just one little Primerose .. "Primula Denticulata 'Blue" .. it has a companion 'white" primerose with it .. now that is a bargain .. I haven't had these before but wondered about them .. admired them for sure !
Now for something brilliant ? by the name of it in any case .. Dianthus Deltoides "Flashing Light" .. I have Cheddar Pinks that smell amazing .. I hope these bright red ones have a little fragrance too !
Penstemon "Hirsutus" Pygmeus ... I started to have a "THING" for penstemon .. it started last year .. with Huskers Red .. and then I had to branch out as it were .. I really become infatuated with some plants and can't help myself ... again with the support group idea ???
Snow-over-the-alps (Cerastium Alpinum Subsp. lanatum) .. I can't find a decent illustrated link for this one .. makes me wonder if I have a wooly weed here ? haha
Party Girl Sidalcea .. I already have a large one but I thought it could use some company .. I ruled out normal size Hollyhocks .. went through all that powdery mildew angst .. had enough of it one year and eliminated plants that just would not stop causing the problems with it .. but this little one and a few other mallows .. I can handle !
I also bought another Korean Rock fern ... again .. I just couldn't help myself .. I fall for ferns !
So .. after working like "heck' today in the garden I am ready to fall over .. but wanted to list my plants so it hits home and I start thinking "STOP BUYING PLANTS NOW !!!!!" ... that's probably ... not ... going .... to .... happen ? BIG sigh .. maybe some pictures tomorrow ? Crocus blooming yipeeeeee !
