No pictures from me for this post, bare roots aren’t very interesting. The pic to the right is “aspirational” as I’m hoping that’s what my rose will look like in a month.
I ordered a few things from the lovely Vesey’s in Prince Edward Island, and they were waiting for me when I got home from work:
- Blanc de Coubert Rose – Rosa x Rugosa ‘Blanc de Coubert’
- Fire Flames Potentilla (3) – Cinquefoil ‘Fire Flames’
- Bonus! A package of 25 mixed Liatris spicata
The Liatris were a nice touch, but I was a bit pressed to find a spot for them. My garden is small and they are threatening to be three feet tall. I put most of them around the AC unit to try to hide it. The others I nestled in the back where I don’t THINK I put any seeds.
I always do this to myself, throw seeds in the ground and don’t label where they are, convinced that I will remember. Then I forget before I make it back into the house. The situation is exacerbated when things start to sprout, since I can’t tell weeds from flowers.
Anyway – it fits well with my garden, it’s native and apparently hummingbirds and butterflies love it. So – welcome unexpected flowers! We’re glad you joined us!
