6/23/07 shopping trip with Mom
I can't believe it, but I only got FOUR plants! LOL Mom got at least double, but many of hers were from the $1 (yes, ONE dollar!) area. She got a Ceanothus for one buck...incredible!
Ok, here's what I got! I already have plans where these plants will go in my yard, but I'd love to hear about any personal experience with these!
Sarcococca ruscifolia (sweet box), Campsis x tagliabuana 'Mme Galen' (trumpet creeper), Macfadyena unguis-cati (cat's claw), and Lantana 'Radiation'.
Mom also brought me a Lamium maculatum 'Beacon Silver' (spotted nettle), Stachys byzantina (lamb's ears), and the crowning glory of all plants I've ever received (since I've ALWAYS wanted one), a Cercis occidentalis (western redbud) seedling, right out of their yard!!
I gave Mom a couple things I bought last time, since they just aren't appropriate for my yard - Cryptomeria japonica 'Elegans' (plume cedar - beautiful, but eventually too big!) and Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood' (Japanese maple...only paid $6!). I also gave her a couple 'Autumn Beauty' sunflower seedlings I started.
I got everything I planned to buy, except a Centranthus ruber (Jupiter's beard), which I've always wanted. I didn't see it there, and I forgot to ask about it!
