I have always been VERY happy with the plants sent to me .. they are BIG , for a mail order company .. healthy and if a failure happens Chris backs her product .. plus it is right here in Ontario which is a key factor for me .. quick delivery once the shipments start.
So .. these are the plants I am expecting :
I am not confident it will have survived this ridiculous winter so I need a stand by to make sure I have one on hand if my first one has bit the dust ?
Some plants you just can't let go of ?
What else can I say after that description quote ? except it looks orange (Halloweeny ?)
It goes to the back of the fence on the sunny side of the garden and I hope it is HUGE and so very fragrant .. blocks out neighbors and smells divine (neighbor's yard doesn't !)
Veronicastrum virginicum "Fascination" aka Culver's Root ..."A gem for the middle or back of the border, this selection of our native Veronicastrum thrives in average soils, dry or moist, and is equally happy in full sun to part shade. It produces whorls of clean, lance-shaped dark green leaves, and branched candelabras of narrow, lilac-rose flower spikes in mid to late summer. Plants grow up to 5ft tall and seldom need staking. Superb with tall Anemones, and beautiful with Ornamental Grasses. "
I have a very plain white one and have been nicely surprised how beautiful it is .. so here is a friend in a wonderful colour to add to the garden.
I think it will shimmer in the shade : )
Every one of these plants .. as do the rest I have ordered serves a purpose .. so although I have ordered with a heavy hand this year (eeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkk !!) .. there really is a purpose, HONESTLY !!
