I am very excited about the Agastache I got from Mammajack, its so beautiful and attracts butterflies, .also I got 24 Lilies from her. I got 8 AMARYLLIS from Chef Mike, and 5 hostas from T&T, she also teams up with Mamajack once in a while. Green Grin! Besides that I am getting my PokerLily,Pineapple Lily, Eastern Bee Balm, Primula Japonica Candelabra Primrose, Heucheras, Coneflowers, Helleborus, Asters, Iris, and a new cultivar of Buddleia called 'Asian Moon.'
I never did get the Lupine, I had a very pretty one in my shopping cart with plants delight and it dissapeared. I guess they were out and deleted it.
That will be it for this year because I am out of work for a while. Sad

Well, it sounds like that should keep you good and busy. Green Grin! Out of work??

I got another catalog from Van Bourgondien's (sp?) and so wanted to order some things I saw in it ... BUT they have such bad ratings on the Garden Watchdog that I'm tossing this catalog too,

Meanwhile, I've managed to order quite a bit from one of my favorite nurseries here in TN. Lovey dubby Plus the co-ops from Sue and Mike ... oh yes, and the hellebores I've already received from mamjack. And all the seeds ... Green Grin!

Yes, should be quite busy! Also I got about 20 perennials that I wintersowed from seed. Rudbeckia, Coneflowers, Zinna's, Lorraine Sunshine, Milkweed, Aster, etc. Besides all the bulbs from the coops I still have the Rip Van Winkle Daffodils and White Tulips to plant. Have you seen that Eastern Bee Baum, it looks a little like a coneflower. Green Grin!
I have taken a leave from work through FMLA, because my husband was in an accident and cannot walk or do for himself right now. Hopefull he will get back to normal real soon. I found out I have 97 hours of personal time and I just did my taxes so I will be getting two more checks from the refunds. There fore It looks like I can afford to stay home for a month if I have to but could be longer, you don't really know with stuff like this. Angel
I am getting a lot of stuff from Santa Rosa, Hallson's and I love hostas.net, but also a few from High Country Gardens and Burpee.(burpee does not have real good reviews I kinda jumped the gun on that one, forgot to check Angry ) The PokerLily and Cyclamen I am getting from 'Edelweiss, and the Pineapple Lily and Bee Balm from Plants Delights,(postage is kinda high but I really wanted these plants Smiling ) Then all together I've also got fifteen new Hostas coming, including 'Lakeside Cupcake' Lovey dubby

Well, as a second-year gardener, pretty much everything is new to me! Big Grin

I find myself drawn to flowers with tall spiky flowers, so I have wintersown liatris, foxgloves, and lupines.

And then I learned about lupinus "Thomas Church." Drooling Is there an emoticon for fainting?

Isn't that the prettiest lupine ever?

WOW, sounds like you got some nice Hostas there! My first order for hostas went out to New Hampshire Hosta, I got 'Eternal Flame', 'Brass Ring', 'Fire & Ice', 'Great Expectations', 'Midnight at the oasis', and 'Andrew Hosta'. From Ilovehostas.net I got 'Pandora's Box' and 'Remember Me', also getting from them 'Sunrise" coneflower. From Hallson's I ordered 'Emerald Ruff Cut' and 'Lakeside Cupcake', also from them I am getting two 'Green Jewels' and 'Hot Papaya'. Then five more from T&T. As far as the Heuchera I have ordered from Ilovehostas.net, 'Cinnabar Silver', 'Green Spice' and 'Silver Scrolls', can you tell I like the silver ones? Hilarious! From Santa Rosa I ordered 'Marvelous Marble' and I am getting some Helleborus! My very first ones will be Cinnamon Snow, Pink Lady and Pink Frost. Green Grin!

Oh, that L. 'Thomas Church' is a pretty one. Might have to spring for some of those. Lovey dubby

I'm impressed that ya'll can remember so many names. Sometimes I have to look at my cheat sheets, er, lists. Green Grin!

Well, I hope to add a couple of Amsonia species, white and bluish. They are natives so maybe they'll do okay. I have seed for one and the other one is at a native nursery...will get it in the spring. So glad I've discovered that this species can grow in southcentral Texas! One thing I try to do is grow plants that don't have to be babied and will survive an area like mine...an area that can be pretty challenging for plants!

I imagine it can, Linda. I have one Amsonia. It's Amsonia hubrectii (if that's the correct spelling). I'm out of the plant babying business myself. I love the TN natives and wildflowers.

I think I will get some Lupine seeds. I saw some on American Meadows, hopefully they can handle a small seed order. Hilarious!
I don't mind the large bag, I can share them on the seed swap. Also I had some left over seeds if anyone here is interested. I have four packs of 'Cup Plant' seeds with 5 in each pack. Just T-mail me and we will work it out, no problem. Green Grin!
Also Yellow Paradoxa,Mixed Zinnia,Gaillardia,Marigold,Harlequin(5ft.tall!)Blue Rose of Sharon,Purple Bergamont,BlackEye Susan Vine and Spanish Eyes,Liatris spicata,Rudbeckia Cappuccino,Veronica spicata'Darwin's Blue' and some mixed 4 o'clocks and different kinds of Coreopsis. Whistling

Ceanothus americanus (New Jersey tea) is a new one for me. I've read that it can be difficult to transplant, so this experiment might be interesting. Smiling
