I would have been fine if he hadn't have mentioned it in a previous post of mine and made me think far too much of it.
Geranium phaeum "Margaret Wilson"
Heuchera Berry Timeless provoked my curiosity for what was called a blooming machine and flowers drying on the stalks without falling off .. some what like "statice" .. so another I am so curious about!
Hosta Liberty was also instigated by my friend Barry yet again ... Barry stop being my enabler PLEASE!!!
Having said that ... I am fascinated by this hosta .. I love the look of it and the capability of it to change the yellow margin to a pale cream later in the season.
Next some lavender collecting ... Ellagance Purple was well collected last year with numerous plants.
I am wondering how it will have survived this COLD winter even with the good snow cover.
None the less I have Ellagance " Pink " and " Snow " coming ... just had to do it.
Pink : I would love to see a field of them in their pink dresses !
Snow : How gorgeous is a white lavender ? .. I had a white one a couple of years ago and loved it .
I am hoping that this one will be a bit more hardy !
It seems a pattern every year I have to pick out a clematis .. last year I went on a bender because a provider here had loads of them for a reasonable price .. so I threw my hands in the air and gobbled a load up ... BIG sigh ... it was great !!!
Romantiaka was one I looked at last year and couldn't make up my mind ... so I decided to throw caution out the window and go with my gut feeling ... just get the damn plant eh !! that was my little plant devil on my shoulder egging me on .. and I went with it !
This picture from the net doesn't do it justice .. it is much darker .. so pairing it with just the right plant will do some thinking .. I want to get this right .. it is a beauty !
Lastly is an ajuga that has been around for a while but I never seemed to connect with it until now ..
So it may seem a bit of a yawn to gardeners that have it already , but it is new to me : )
Ajuga reptans "Dixie Chip"
It just strikes me as a very pretty front border edging.
So there we are .. or there I am .... now it is a game of time (does anyone out there watch "Game of Thrones" ? .. I love that show .. plus "Vikings" !!) .. ok enough of the foolishness !
I am on board with my game plan with the new plants ... snow and cold LEAVE as soon as possible PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
