Wow! That is going to be a very pretty garden. Please share pictures when the flowers are in bloom.
I have the Sarah Barnhardt peony (5) and I have planted the Angelique tulips. They were beautiful but did not return the following year.
You seem to like pink--so do I. I have a lot of pink and blue combinations.
Are you going to Winter Sow anything. I am going to try to WS Campanula 'Telham Beauty'. I believe the picture is on Diane's Seeds.

Dayton, OH

Clematis I want to plant together.
1 and 2 - "Crylstal Fountain" with "Empress" -- In front of house --- Still living
3 and 4 - "Omoshiro" with "Dorothy Tolver" -- In front side of house ---Still living
5 and 6 - "Purple Clematis" with "Blue Lite" -- on arbor ---Still living
7 and 8 - " Josephine" with "Purple Clematis" -- I can't find these Clematis's
9 and 10 - "Belle of Woking" with "Franziska Maria"-- I think these Clematis's have died
11 and 12 - "Patricia Ann Fretwell" with "Ville de Lyon" -- front back side of house --- Still living

Just Googled (that's a verb you know) http://www.dianeseeds.com/

Jackson, MO(Zone 6b)

http://www.dianeseeds.com/campanula-persicifolia.html
http://www.dianeseeds.com/campanula-rotundifolia.html
The above flowers I am going to WS this year.
Yes, I like pink, but I think my favorite is blue as it goes with any color. It looks good with red, pink, yellow, orange and white.
My peonies bloom a lot, but I think it took them a couple of years to start blooming. Now, they bloom so much, the blooms get heavy, and I have to use supports. I don't think peonies are very pretty if one lets the blooms bend over and lay on the ground.

Dayton, OH

How do get Websites on these threads? The flowers you are WS are very beautiful.

This message was edited May 27, 2011 5:38 PM

Jackson, MO(Zone 6b)

Well, I would really like to see your trellis when you have it above your peony.
I have struggled with mine drooping over.
I will "try" to tell you how to get a website on to a "thread" on this website like I did with Diane's Seeds. Mind you, I am not very savvy at all with computers.
Steps:
1. Start a thread as above and say something.
2. Minus out of this website.
3. Go to the website you want to share with someone.
4. Highlight the address at the top of your computer.
5. When it is highlighted in blue, carefully put your cursor over the blue highlighted area. If you aren't careful the blue highlighting will disappear. Then, you will have to highlight it over. Right click and a menu or box will appear. Click on "Copy".
6. Then minus out.
7. Now, go back and click on the original "thread" you minused out at the bottom of the computer you wrote on in Dave's Garden.
8. The original thread you had started in Dave's Garden should show up.
On the area in the thread, right click again and a menu (or box) should show up. Right click on "paste" in the menu (box). Your "address" should show up.

That should do it. If you don't know how to highlight, that's another task. Look up on your computer where it shows Help and ask the computer how to highlight.
If you still don't know how to do it, I will try to tell you how.
Good Luck!

Northern California, United States(Zone 9a)

Good instructions birder, hope that helps roseycats.
Just to clarify, by minus out, you mean minimize the browser page right?

Here is a helpful Youtube visual http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCYP0mPeDoU

Jackson, MO(Zone 6b)

Thanks Sue. Yes, "minus out" is really minimize. :) I am not very good with computers.
I hope Rosey can follow the directions.

Dayton, OH

Thanks birder and Sue, right now I am trying to find a reason to do this, plus the nerve.

This message was edited Dec 15, 2010 6:59 PM

Jackson, MO(Zone 6b)

I recommend just finding anything and trying while you have the directions. If you try and it doesn't work, you could ask questions right here on this thread.
Go to http://www.heirloomroses.com/ Heirloom Roses and pick out a pretty rose you would like to have in your garden and "copy" and "paste" it to this thread.
Or if you're too busy with Christmas and all---then maybe you could do it after Christmas.

Dayton, OH

Here we go again

Birder and Sue I have tried to get some websites on here, but they all come in black instead of green. I must be doing something wrong but don't know what.

Dayton, OH

I have never ordered from them but Garden Watchdog has great ratings for them.
I do have the clematis you listed, it's new for me.

Dayton, OH

Thanks Sue & Birder I had a hard time learning how to copy and paste.

Jackson, MO(Zone 6b)

Great Rosy!! You did it!
I have looked at your Bluestone P. choices. I will comment on them later. I have to fix dinner now! Birder

Jackson, MO(Zone 6b)

http://www.bluestoneperennials.com/b/bp/CAPTP.html
I don't have this cutie, and I have wanted it for awhile now. However, I have read it could be aggressive. So, I haven't put it in my garden. You may want to do a little research on it. Also, you can order this from a seed catalog.

Jackson, MO(Zone 6b)

http://www.bluestoneperennials.com/b/bp/CHINP.html
This shrub is rather "twiggy" and during the winter, it looks a little messy. I don't believe the flowers are very big either.

Jackson, MO(Zone 6b)

I think all of your choices are quite pretty. Just thought I'd let you know what little bit I know about your choices.
I hope you consider roses some day. I have so enjoyed them. They bloom early, all summer and well into the fall. I had bloom up to Thanksgiving.

There's a lot of Campanulas that I think are gorgeous. I think they're a little hard to grow in my zone 6 climate. I think the summers get a little too hot for them. I am going to try to grow some and see how they do.
Also, I think you would really like larkspur. It is an annual, but once you get it started in your garden, it will re-seed nicely.

Jackson, MO(Zone 6b)

One more thing, I have ordered from Bluestone Perrenials. Their plants are very nice.

Dayton, OH

birder, thanks for the information about the flowers.

Another thing about the Campanula pantaloon. I think the plant gets about 18" tall. You will be looking down on the bells. I still like this plant, however. It sounds like you have the perfect place for it.

Dayton, OH

Hey Birder, I have a red and white honeysuckle called Late Dutch which blooms late in the Summer till Fall, and I was thinking about mixing a white climbing rose in with it. What do you think about that idea? I really don't know what I'm going to do if I don't hurry up and get well. I've been sick since New Year's day.

Jackson, MO(Zone 6b)

Honeysuckle and climbing rose sounds real pretty. You would probably want to make sure the rose bloomed late summer and fall. Some roses bloom once, some bloom twice like some of the clematis, some bloom pretty much all summer.
Make sure the rose is suitable for Ohio. The Buck roses are good for the north-if roses are planted in a "too cold" zone, they will freeze out over the winter.
I would also look for a rose that has very good disease resistance. If you have to spray a climber above your head for black spot or whatever, well, that just doesn't sound too pleasant. Since it would be a climber, I am thinking I would get a real easy rose to grow. Also, from my experience, I once chose a climbing rose, and it totally out grew the trellis. So, check the mature height of the rose. And last, I like fragrance, but I think sometimes, you have to give up one attribute to have some other characteristic.
Those are just my thoughts-nothing written in stone.

Dayton, OH

Thanks Birder, I have to go for now, still not feeling well, think I better get back to bed for awhile.

Jackson, MO(Zone 6b)

Lot of people have been sick. I hope you start feeling better soon.

Dayton, OH

Thanks Birder, Received a flower catalogue yesterday, You should see the high prices on the flowers. I know I will not buy anything from them. wow!

Very nice flowers. I really like the first one, the blue one: franzis...
I have two Belle of Wokings.

Dayton, OH

Hello birder! Thanks, That Franziska is a pretty Clematis. Did you w.s. your flower seeds? If you did,please let me know how they are doing.

Jackson, MO(Zone 6b)

I haven't started! But, I am going to this weekend.
I just ordered a bunch of seeds tonight. If I don't get them planted this year--well there's next year. I believe I will have time providing the company sends them out and the PO cooperates. They said they would send the seeds out within 3 days from the order. So, I am going to be watching that mailbox. I will have everything lined up regarding WS so I can pop those seeds into their homes right away.
I am thinking about ordering that Franz. clematis. I have been looking for one like that to climb around on a gold rose bush that I have.

Dayton, OH

Say Birder, That Franz Clematis sounds really great with your gold rose bush. I hope your seeds get there soon.

Did your seeds come yet?
