Come go with me and see what’s blooming at the nursery with all the know about new and sought after landscaping plants for my hometown. While looking for some bedding plants, I snapped a series of pictures from the Perennial beds to the fresh market. For this post, we’ll take a look at the perennial tables which are outstanding and irresistible.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I call these mouth watering and quite delicious colors. They are so healthy. You’ll see in upcoming post, how very impressed I am with his hanging baskets and bedding plants. I hauled off a wagon load today.
One thing I purchased was these Cheddar Pink Dianthus. My word they did well in my former gardens so you know I had to have them again. They bloom all summer and sometimes stay evergreen. The columbine was tempting but my shade beds aren’t ready at the new house. Copper Top Cottage has to be finished and after construction I’ll amend with lots of leaf mulch. That will be my summer project.
And just maybe, I’ll have to go back and rethink these Bachelor Buttons. I don’t just go around once, twice, seven times. I keep circling inside and out dragging my wagon hither and yon adding to the treasured selections until the wagon won’t hold anymore.
Be sure to enlarge the photo above so you can see the deep burgundy of this columbine. I didn’t have time to jot down the names cause my list was long and I had to chat with all the good folks that I helped over the years when I worked at this little shop. I worked last week and just may again at some time.
So as I walked the isles, I saw folks who are there every year getting their plants or fresh vegetables. And everytime I saw someone—they said—-you colored your hair and got it cut! And I said–yes!, it’s the new me. Di
The sweet men and women I saw today, were sorta like family. I even remembered what flowers they had purchased in years previous. .
I remember when they planted that Amethyst Falls( thanks Les @ A Tidewater Gardener for identifying this type) Wisteria. It’s not as invasive as the wild thing wisteria. It bloomed the first year and after 4 years makes this dramatic announcement that I look and smell good. This whole area of the nursery smells good cause the herb tables are close by. I saw lots of pretty lavender and a very nice assortment of tomato plants.
That columbine looks nice with the wisteria in the background. How come that wisteia keeps getting in the picture?
This was a fun day. I really respect the owners of private nurseries all across America. I support several on my sidebar. I know they work extremely hard and from my experience, the plants out perform those purchased at any other retail garden centers.
