Canning Perennials was one of the first mail order plant companies I tried, and was so surprised at the size of the plants that came .. I had been hesitant because it was a bit more pricey BUT you can see why when you get the plants !
Indian Pinks (I think I lost mine over the winter) but these come up very late so maybe the original might still peek out ?
I didn't want to take a chance since husband really likes this plant too !
# 2 Aconitum Blue Lagoon .. I have loved this cultivar for a while and had to cave : )
# 3 clematis Blue Angel ... I needed something special to cover the bare side of my bittersweet vine .. something neutral and this flower looked perfect !
# 4 Panicum Prairie Fire .. I still have a deep need for ornamental grasses and this one fits the bill for later on in the year COLOUR !
# 5 Astrantia Venice .. a spectacular red for the shady side of the long strip.
I love those flowers and in that colour ? perfection !
# 6 Epimedium Roseum .. a barrenwort .. I had a weakness for one more to go on the hellebore raised bed where my first one is .. repetition can be a good thing right?
# 7 Echinacea Double Scoop Raspberry .. OK ... I admit, every year I collect an echinacea and this colour and form did intrigue me a bit .. thus here it is !
So .. pros and cons to Canning ?
Pros .. short distance delivery .. BIG plants so you get some satisfaction straight away.
Owner Chris, is easy to contact and discuss concerns with.
Cons .. it can be a bit pricey but you get what you pay for type deal !
