I went online shopping for plants and seeds yesterday, bookmarking the ones on my list and putting them all in a folder in My Favorites. I’m not looking for the rarest plants and seeds; some of it is absolutely boring. But I still had a hard time coming up with some of the stuff on my list. Why can’t I find Golden Feverfew seeds in the U.S.? Who goes to page 8 in a Google search to find a Comfrey plant? I made myself crazy searching for some of this stuff and it pretty much took all day.
Here are 20 random picks from my list for 2009. I feel very vulnerable telling you this. Sharing this list makes me feel naked and exposed. Ewwwww.
- Angelica gigas (undecided)
- Corydalis ‘Blue Panda’
- Crambe cordifolia
- Achillea ‘The Pearl’
- Cryptotaenia atropurpurea
- Euphorbia palustris
- Gunnera tinctoria
- Aster ‘Hulk’
- Mazus reptans
- Melianthus major
- Rosa ‘Robusta’
- Rodgersia ‘Chocolate Wings’
- Sanguisorba menziesii
- Symphytum x uplandicum 'Axminster Gold'
- Tiger Cub Corn
- Variegated Horseradish
- Clematis 'My Angel'
- Ornamental Rhubarb (undecided)
- Silene uniflorus ‘Druett’s Variegated”
I guess it should be a list of 21 because I’m like a pit bull about finding some Golden Feverfew seeds. I even had dreams about them last night.
Ok, who wants to put in their 2¢ about my list in the forum? I bet you have a list too—I’d love it if you’d share it. I’d feel less naked.
P.S. A little Aster Kissing®, I know I learned of a few of these plants through Horticulture magazine, most notably, Melianthus Major. I was reading Horticulture in the tub, as usual, and when I turned the page and saw it, I literally dropped the magazine into the bath water. Since I’m a pack rat and I keep everything, here’s the evidence.
P.P.S. This list does not include any of our edibles. That’s another post for another day. I’m already feeling so vulnerable.
P.P.P.S. Can I put my clothes back on now?
