I live a few hours from Romence. I usually hit them up in the fall when they have an amazing clearance sale. Sadly, I missed it this fall. I've been waiting for them to update their site with the New for 2016. I added about four things to my wish list.

I'm not at the point of breaking down for anything else as I already have orders coming from Swan Island Dahlias, High Country Gardens, and Santa Rosa Gardens.

Oh wait, someone gave me a Gift Certif for Bluestone Perennials!

Jennifer, So frustrating to go to Romence and find the New For 2016 items are marked "out of stock" I hope this will change ( like today )
I also have an order from Santa Rosa.
Waiting on Hallsonsto post new website also.

Nice baptisias. I have 'Purple Smoke' and it performs great here. Might just have to add those that you found to my want list. Haven't really seen a good white one before. I like the geranium 'Purple Ghost' too - kind of reminds me of 'Espresso' with the dark foliage.

My want list is pretty extensive, but new additions to it are magnolias after reading an article about them in the latest issue of Fine Gardening.
There were several that I put on the list, but this is the one that I'll definitely be getting this year:
Magnolia figo var. 'crassipes 'Royal Robes'

Another new want
Fuchsia magellanica var molinae

I liked those Baptesias because they are smaller than the Purple Smoke.
I love my Purple Smoke. I tried Twilight Prairie Blues but the color was not great here.

I am always on the lookout for additional helleborus cultivars. It is another plant that seems to do well in my shade and withstands the deer. This year, Burpee is now offering the Wedding Party Series. I ordered these three for 2016 delivery:

Wow, Jo Ann, those baptisia cultivars are beautiful! I have a couple of the straight species baptisia, and that's plenty for my small garden. They get so big!

At a public garden in Virginia (Greenspring in Alexandria), I saw a group of baptisia that were so big that they looked like shrubs or trees. Boy, they were gorgeous! Lovey dubby

I love those double hellebores, Terri. Hellebores are great in my garden. Evergreen, pest- and disease-proof, drought tolerant, long-lasting flowers. What else could you ask for? Big Grin They look great with hostas and heuchera. These three "H" plants are wonderful together in a shade garden. I have lots of hostas on my WANT list, but no space for them all. Big Grin

Terri, is that fuchsia really hardy down to zone 7?

Some things on my WANT list:

-Maidenhair Fern
-Edgeworthia (paper bush)
-Witch Hazel 'Arnold's Promise'
-Rock Soapwort
Thalictrum 'Splendide'

It's impossible to get those around here; the only ones available here are C. powelli and somethimes C. moorei Grumbling Their flowers are nice, but the foliage is a whole different thing; so strappy and ugly while those of the aforementioned are upright; that's why I want those. Do you perhaps know of someone in the US who would want to ship some bulbs trans Atlantic Jo Ann?

Also the Pancratium is a pain in the butt to get a hold off (somethimes they offer P. maritimum, but it's less hardy and it flowers before the foliage emerges and that's not really pretty to me). P. illyricum is endemic on a few islands in the Mediterranean and quite rare indeed, so only could find two dealers in Europe. One in Ireland (way too pricy, like 53 pounds for one bulb Blinking ) and the other in France where I placed my order yesterday.

So sorry I assumed you were a native here. Just not reading too well these days,cataract surgery in one eye makes the world look strange.
Now that you explain the minuses I will not pursue the aforementioned.
Now that I see your zone it was folly of me to jump in. I am Z6a.
Those plants are lovely in any event.

I have Crinum americanum Lee-Roy, brought it from my trip to Brazil, some 5 years ago now.
I only got a few small bulbs and only kept one (originally two, but lost one due to over-watering in the winter season) for myself as I have soooooo... many plants and little space. Rolling my eyes.
It still hasn't bloomed but it has grown a lot, I think next season it will make its show, I keep it inside during the winter months, and put it in my pond in the growing season when it likes its feet wet, it was a natural swamp where I found them growing, also a place where snakes like to roam around, local people would mow them down once in a while for that reason, but the Crinums still bloomed!

Pteridophyllum racemosum and Eucharis amazonica look like real gems!
