Friday’s Plant Pick Up

Mexican Buckeye Flowers

Well hello there. How are you doing on this beautiful Tuesday evening?? Ziva and I are doing great. We emailed our plant order to our native supplier a few minutes ago, so now it’s time to make the plant pick up post!

Here’s what we ordered:

  • Callistemon viminalis ‘Hannah Ray’, Hanna Ray Weeping Bottlebrush Tree
  • Camellia ‘Quintessence’, japonica × lutchuensis, Quintessence Camellia (fragrant, very dwarf growth habit) (new)
  • Michellia fuscata, Banana Shrub
  • Prunus glandulosa, Flowering Almond Tree (new)
  • * Acer leucoderme, Chalk Maple Tree (new)
  • * Cornus drummondii, Roughleaf Dogwood
  • * Diospyros virginiana, Common Persimmon Tree
  • * Itea virginica ‘Little Henry,’ Little Henry Sweetspire Shrub

  • * Malvaviscus drummondii, Red Turk’s Cap
  • * Scutellaria wrightii, Wright’s Purple Skullcap
  • Scutellaria suffrutescens, Raspberry Skullcap
  • * Tagetes lemonii, Copper Canyon Daisy Shrub

* Native/Nativar. (new) means the first time it’s been for sale in the Boutique.

And now to the beautiful pictures of the plants in their mature glory.

In our area, Fall is the perfect time of year to plant trees, shrubs, and perennials because it gives their roots time to get established before the heat of the summer rolls around again. Also, planting now gives those Spring blooming plants time to get ready to put on their Spring show.

So which ones are your favorites and need to go into your garden??

Have a fabulous rest of the day, and happy diggin’ in the dirt!
