They have some nice little guys. Otherwise, I like Outcast.

The intro Belle Fille is amazing!!!! Woot! Lovey dubby

Bad news for me is they aren't carrying Black Lightning, nor Patchwork Puzzle this year. Crying

I really really want Clydesdale but $35 is a bit much.

I did make my order though. There were a few MTB's, STB's and BB's I wanted.

I bought medians from them in 2013 and they have grown, bloomed, and increased well. Pretty flowers.

Good to know Paul. Most of my order is medians and dwarfs.

Anyone grow their Louisianas?

The more I look at Benedictine the more I fall in love.....

Chad Harris's new JI Columbia Crest is another beauty from him.

Check Superstition Gardens for Black Lightning. They had it last year & I don't have the catalog right here.

So to /chuck Chapman. It is his plant. He is late in getting his new list up. No trouble ordering from his garden in Canada. He sees them over the border himself. chapmaniris.com

It can get a little tall for an SDB but it has a beautiful Flower. Bonnie, it might rebloom for you. Not so in our area but it does at Superstition.

Aha -- I only looked under the alphabetized list. I never think to look under other classifications. Prolly because I never buy other classifications.......but still -- I should have caught that. Whistling I'm glad that you did, Bonnie.

I always look for the dwarfs and they are seldom with other classes so it was just natural.

Thank you, Lucy. I am going to see how it does for me.
