Really, this was going to be a super quick trip to grab the Bear grass and go. Can you beat that color?
Peucedanum ostruthium 'Daphnis' "Well-behaved Bishop's Weed replacement." Where's the fun in that. If it doesn't cause you to require a chiropractor after eradicating it, is there any challenge?
Thalictrum 'Evening Star' new a year or two ago from Terra nova. "Leaves like an epimedium" (Resistance is futile L.B.) I love this and since the one I bought last year is coming back with gusto, more might come home to join the party.
The quick trip thing sort of flew out the window when I saw more new arrivals like this Grevillia 'Pink Pearl.' but if I got every Grevillia that I liked, I'd have them all.
Who can resist Gentians? True blue flowers, several flats of them.
It would be thoughtless not to bring a few of these home to share with those who live in my garden but don't go to nurseries, right?
Viola 'Hertthrob' has beautiful leaves but it doesn't last long in my garden for some reason. Have you grown this one? Has it lasted for very many years for you?
Talking about saturated color, Pericallis 'Deep Blue' is so intense, it almost hurts your eyes to look at it. Beautiful.
