I went to Blanchette's in Carlisle recently. The plants are 50% off now. There are still many hosta and astilbe (his two largest collections), and many astilbe are in full bloom.
There are also a lot of polygonatums, another favorite of his. I particularly love "Grace Barker" & "Carlisle"
There's a white phlox paniculata "Miss Universe" and nepeta " Johanna Reed" both rated highly by the Chicago Botanic Garden.
I enjoyed a leisurely stroll in the nearly empty nursery. No mob lines like the first day of the sale.
Still worth the drive.
