What plants do you absolutely have to have this Spring?
Now that Bluestone has raised its prices, and I've ordered two Camellias ('Winter's Rose' and 'April Remembered'--Bill reminded me how much I wanted them), I've decided to be picky about what I add to my gardens this year.
Corylopsis pauciflora is one necessity since my husband ever so carefully mowed down (by mistake) the adorable little one that I bought from Forest Farm years ago. --He thought it was a weed. Sigh. I still grieve for that little shrub.
A bunch of Hellebores thanks to the enablers here. 'Cinnamon Snow', 'Pink Frost', H. x ballardiae 'Spring Party', 'Regal Ruffles' --in red, in case they come in different colors, and 'Mellow Yellow', as well as another H. niger to keep my H. 'Joshua' company.
Dicentra scandens. A yellow climbing, possibly fragrant?, bleeding heart! Don't know if it will be hardy in Zone 6, but I'll plant it near the house and hope for the best.
A fairy rose because someone here (nhbabs?) reminded me how much I love it. I used to have one in my old garden.
An Illicium floridanum of some kind. There are new cultivars so I'll have to look into it.
Adiantum x mairisii --Hardy maidenhair fern. Hardy! Love those filigreed leaves and never thought I could get one that would be hardy in my garden.
And probably hundreds more...
