More flowers have arrived

(This is the lost post from last week... it just reappeared as a draft. I planted them all this weekend, in the newly-prepared pool border and in the flower bed by the kitchen deck.)

Perennial "grab bag" from SpringHill Nursery: a "grab bag" means they send you more than you pay for, but you have no idea what will be inside it... this is what I received today:

  • Galliardia aristata "Burgundy"
  • Galliardia "Arizona Sun" x 3
  • Centranthus ruber coccineus
  • Salvia nemorosa "Blaukoningin" x 3
  • Galliardia x grandiflora "Goblin"  (dwarf galliardia)
  • Aster x frikartii "Wonder of Staffa" x 3  (that's the strange blue aster)
  • Aster dumcsus "Mittelmeer dwarf aster"
  • Aster dumcsus "Jenny dwarf aster"
  • Liatris spicata "Alba" bulbs x 3
  • Liatris spicata "Purple blazing star" x 6  (these were not in the grab bag but arrived in same shipment".
I guess I have some digging to do tonight!  I love salvias, am a little concerned that the centranthus might be invasive (put it in a pot?), I find the blue asters downright weird with that strange fake blue but we'll see how they look mixed in with something else.
