I am most excited about the bulbs I ordered from 'Onalee's Seeds'. I have ordered seeds from her before but I did a Google search for a vine I wanted for spring and she had the best price on tubers. These may be a little invasive in the south but I am doing a container. Also I hear they are short lived. Who cares! They are beautiful.
'Gloriosa Lily', 4 tubers for only $12.00 and free shipping!

So far I have more daylillies around 20 coming and also ordered some Cheyenne Spirit coneflowers. Oh yes one more asiatic lily 3 bulbs and one OT 2 bulbs lily love them from the Lily Garden. Placed a order with Romence Gardens for half a dozen Little Trudy nepeta plants. Your lily is lovely my mother tried them one year but they didn't like our cool climate.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!

Thanks! This is the second vine I ordered, the first was 'Major Wheeler', from niche gardens. My first order ever from them. Also got a 'Red Sprite' winter-berry, uses same pollinator that I already have called 'Jim Dandy'. So this is my fourth winter-berry!. I got the others from Bluestone Perennials last year.

That is quite a list and adding to it will just get you into more trouble! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
I am still trying to figure out how to explain the 200 daylilies that are coming, gulp! *Blush*

I got an email from Floyd Cove yesterday and they completed the order by asking me for my cvc code on back of card. They ask for that separately, not when you put your credit card number in. They shipped yesterday!! Hurray!
I am getting some really nice daylilies from Floyd Cove:
STONE ISLAND
COSMIC KALEIDOSCOPE
AZURE BUTTERFLY
PRINCESS DIANA
SNOW CRYSTAL
BOTTLE ROCKET
SWEET APRICOT HONEY
MAGNICENT MAGPIE
WALKING IN BEAUTY

Good for you! I just found out that my four tubers have already been shipped!! I just bought them yesterday!! (Onalee's Seeds)

I got three emails from LA vendors that they have shipped my daylilies!! OMG, I have to go back to work tomorrow and back to eleven hour days. No end in sight and my vacation is a month away!! Yikes, no matter what I do it turned out this way but I think it is still better than getting 200 at one time. I taught my husband how to pot them up last year, I always seem to get overwhelmed for some reason. It is not like a do a lot of shopping!!

Brent and Beckys notified me the dahlia Urchen was not available and would I like a sub.
I agreed and when I saw the plant I liked it better.
Park Princess: its a shorter variety 28 inches.

I said I was going to wait but I keep running into sales and finding stuff I've been wanting. My order from Bluestone was great. Two plants were 50% off then the rest were 10% off and then they give you a free plant if your order is over 75.00, and my order did end up that way. *Blush*

Here is the whole order, one Hydrangea is for my girlfriend from work.

1 CLPF Clematis Pink Fantasy SPRING 2013 $12.55 $12.55

1 HYSL Hydrangea Let's Dance SPRING 2013 $12.55 $12.55
Starlight

1 SAWT Salvia Wild Thing SPRING 2013 $8.96 $8.96

1 POVA Polygonatum Variegatum SPRING 2013 $8.96 $8.96

1 HYDS Hydrangea Double Delights SPRING 2013 $12.55 $12.55
Star Gazer

1 ILBH Ilex Berry Heavy SPRING 2013 $14.36 $14.36

1 HYMO Hydrangea Mousmee SPRING 2013 $6.97 $6.97

1 BACM Baptisia Carolina Moonlight FALL 2013 $0.00 $0.00

1 HOPY Hosta Paul's Glory SPRING 2013 $4.47 $4.47


They had everything that was left on my wish list after ordering from Niche and GHS. I was thrilled to get the free plant and the discounts. Paul's Glory was not on my list but it does well here and I wanted a second one. This hosta takes the heat and doesn't bat an eye, even when you forget to water it!

I got plants from a coop last year but they died, they were not shipped till July. Everything here must get planted in May so it will put down roots before July otherwise it will not survive the heat. Rolling my eyes.
