I'm happy, great finds


I went to a local nursery this morning, its only been there a year. The best looking, healthiest plants I've seen all spring. Terrific prices, I got perennials for a 1:35 at pot, 3 inch square, that are just overflowing. I got rhp, balloon flower, Persian shield, lambs ears, and emperors wave. It was just an amazing nursery, the big pots were very reasonably priced to. Lol, just so tickled I had to share.

Wonderful, I had looked for lambs ears earlier in the spring but couldn't find any and I had always wanted Persian shield but could never fi d it around here. The others I just couldn't resist. All of them, 4 lambs ears, 4 rhp, 4 balloon flowers and 2 each of Persian shield and emperors wave. Since Persian shield and emperors wave are both varieties of sedum, I'm going to propagate off of them. When I can afford to go back there I will
