I was wanting to buy a mix/collection.
I know nothing about them except they work in part shady areas and bloom early spring.
Best place to find a nice mix or collection.

If you would have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden, go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.

Pine Knot Farms has a very nice selection and good prices.
Where ever you decide to plant make sure you have very good drainage. Even though they are thought of as shade plants up here in the north they do fine in full sun.

I plan on mixing them in between the hostas and coral bells.Good drainage there even with all this rain we have had.

Good price on a mix of NOIDS ,just what I was looking for.

Just love the colors of the flowers makes me think of antique colorized photos don't know why.

They have an exceptionally long bloom time and also look nice afterward. I never thought to pair them with hostas, great idea. Give them plenty of room to sprawl.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
