Guess what?! This nursery is less than an hour away from me! Hurray! Hurray! I'm hoping I can just pick up plants from them and save on shipping. It is just a few minutes away from where my husband goes fishing in the summer.

Jennifer: Glad I could help. I actually Love this couple who are RD. They charge the same for shipping and send a bonus plant ( usually a new intro ) for every ten plants ordered. I have found great plants that way where I might never have ordered from just a photo in the catalog.
Here is what I am getting so far REMEMBER I have 35 planters and a 4 x8 space in front of the woodpile to fill.

Filigree looks like Kiwi Fern..... the way I remember the colors 15 yrs ago when it was first introduced. When I see Kiwi Fern now I always say "It does not look like the original first introduced Kiwi F:"

I look through RD for fun, but I cannot make myself pay the price for an annual because it is too hard for me to keep them alive through the winter.

A nice selection for us to enjoy at least pictorially!
I wonder if seeds are available for those?

I'm pretty sure most of these exotic looking varieties are propagated by cuttings. But, hey, never hurts to look!

I would like to add some of these are Terre Nova intros so I doubt they sell seeds.
Some are developed by hybridizers who never offer seeds.

For what it's worth, I tried Park's Black Dragon and Marble Giant, and had no germination whatsoever. Odd, since I've also bought their Limelight and Kong Green and had very good luck with those.

And, my but Burpee is awfully proud of those seeds! They do offer some pretty stuff, tho. Smiling

They have a Facebook page and mentioned there that they are having some problems with the new website. But they did expect to be up and running on Monday.
