A new purchase just arrived and it didn't turn out so well. I ordered a Pusch spruce and thought it would look like the web pictures and be a small guy, no more than one foot in ten yrs. Turns out it is a topiary, with this grafted ball of spruce on a two foot stem. Topiary is not my thing and I don't like it, but expensive to return and I'm trying to figure out want to do. The seller says over time the branches will drop down and it will look more tree-like. I'm wondering if I planted some foot-high grass around it, if that might work to disguise the stem until it got older. Anyone have experience with this? The seller mentioned in an email that it was "on standard" but I didn't know what that meant and skimmed over it and never asked--this will teach me to slow down and pay attention!

Wow, you cleaned up! Great stuff!

Nooooooo shopping for me until everything is planted or up-potted, period. I'm down to a half-dozen hosta, a bunch of seedling Platycodons, a couple of clematis, a perennial sunflower... And a few odds and ends I forget right now. About 3 flats worth. Not to mention what I want to move around and divide... Sigh...

On the happy side, after all the heat and the rain tonight, the garden is looking amazing!

I have taken advantage of all the co-ops and Santa Rosa sales (plus lots of Crape Myrtles from Ebay) and I just received my LAST purchase for the year which I took a chance on. I have a spot that needs filling where I'm taking out all my Daylilies (putting them in the far garden with the flowering bushes because most of the time, all they are only leaves). For 29.00 I purchased the mystery package from Santa Rosa and received:

Items Ordered:

3 of : Agastache Cotton Candy bbox

1 of : Calamagrostis acutiflora Avalanche bbox

1 of : Carex morrowii Silver Sceptre bbox

3 of : Coreopsis Star Cluster bbox

1 of : Crocosmia Lucifer bbox

3 of : Gaura lindheimeri Crimson Butterflies bbox

2 of : Hibiscus moscheutos Luna Pink Swirl

1 of : Pennisetum orientale Karley Rose bbox

( Santa Rosa Bargain Box)

I'm not sure what some of them are, but the healthy, well packed plants will do nicely in the spot where they're needed.

OWNERSHIP CHANGE
Dear Customers and Friends,

We are excited to announce that RareFind Nursery has been purchased! After Hank Schannen's death in 2009, it was his heirs desire to sell the nursery and property. It was important that we find a new owner who would share our vision and commitment to making RareFind Nursery better than ever.

Effective today, the new owner is Oliver LaFarge Hamill of Lawrenceville, NJ. Oliver is a long-standing customer of RareFind and is a self-described 'plant nut'. He's was a Landscape Architect and is a co-owner of Cherry Grove Farm of Lawrenceville, NJ. Cherry Grove Farm is a 400 acre certified organic, sustainable and diversified farm that produces handcrafted cheese, whey-fed pork, pasture raised chickens and grass-fed beef and lamb. (www.cherrygrovefarm.com)

We hope to make some changes that have been on hold since Hank's death, but do not anticipate changes in staff, products or service, except where improvement is needed!

Your past support has been critical to our survival during a difficult time and your future support is equally vital. Your comments and feedback are important to us- please let us know how we can improve!

Sincerely,

The Employees of RareFind Nursery

I was over at David's today, and it would be definitely shady and something less than 10 ft tall. Maybe not even evergreen, they can keep shades pulled in winter. There is a spruce tree in the front side yard, then about a 10 - 15 ft open area and then more trees and woods behind the house getting wider as they go back. Couple maples in the neighbors yard shade most of the area.

ordered some allium from Breck's in mid-july - cancelled the order today after getting a couple catalogs and an email offer - had to do the math on 75% off verse $25 discount and then compare against Brecks wholesale pricing. Pain in the butt - cust service there said the same thing. Ended up ordering from wholesale for Beau Regards, and 3 others with the 75% off - should have learned my lesson this spring, will not open another Breck's catalog this fall :)

Yes love them all

You lost them cause of no snow cover? I had no snow to speak of at all down here and all mine came back, weird...maybe just need to mulch heavily??

Garden center near me, all annuals 50% off so this was my booty, needed to fill the empty deck pots(finally got around to it)

Just back from a trip to MA. Horrible traffic on the way back into Maine--leaving Maine during the summer is never a good idea, as it is really tedious to get back in. Anyway, purpose of the trip was a rocks/minerals show in Springfield (who would ever have guessed that is another of my hobbies?) and on the way home, I went to New England Bonsai in Bellingham. I have ordered supplies from them but never been there in person. I got a sweet Acer palmatum Katsura bonsai, young but well-proportioned, I thought. Also, two bags of fine pine bark, which is a major and very-hard-to-find ingredient in Al's (Tapla here at Dave's Garden) home-made potting soil, which I like for JM's because the drainage is so excellent with his mix (see his posts on Container Gardening forum if interested). Best of all, came home to see the rain gauge tell me we got two inches!

Am I the only one still shopping?

This weekend we went camping and I stopped in my favorite nursery in Belfast, ME. Got Corydalis 'Blue Heron'. I hadn't heard of blue-flowered Corydalis before. The tag says zone 6, which won't work for me, but the nursery owner said zone 5. I was willing to gamble to get that blue. Anyone have experience with this?

I also got a Chamaecyparis pisifera (pictured) that the owner, who does a lot of plant propagation, had obtained from cuttings taken from Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Boulevard' that exhibited a fan shape as opposed to the normal curly shape. She tentatively called it 'Blue Fan' although I gather has not registered it yet (or whatever it is one does to name a cultivar). I just liked how it looked and didn't care whether it is official. Of course, it may revert to the species, we'll see.

Here's an easy way to spend some money! Bannister Gardens is selling their peonies at half price this year! So I took the plunge and bought Garden Treasure and Prairie Charm --normally very expensive ITOHs, Fantastic, and some favorites to fill in the peony gardens. Festiva Maxima peony was priced $7.50 per root section. It is easier to shop than to weed :)

I really love it that herbacious peonies can just die back during this hot weather and I don't have to water them if I am not trying to raise a bumper crop. The ITOH peonies have the best qualities of the herbacious and the tree peonies in my opinion. The two new ones will go by the road.

Though I love tree peonies, I find them hard to get started from an expensive, tiny root. I think Cliffie my dog digs them up, but I'd still rather love my dog than have a peony from the lost monastery.

Celeste, I can't imagine trying to plant that many bulbs, but the results should be awesome.

I attended the American conifer society meeting in Boston this weekend, and had a great time visiting gardens and drooling over plants. There are some serious conifer lovers in that group, and they bid pretty high at the auction of donated plants. So I wasn't very successful with the auction, but at the "tailgate" show afterwards I picked up some treasures and made a dent in my wallet. I also visited Harlequin Rare Trees nursery south of Boston. I put pictures of the conifers I bought on the trees forum ( http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1280742/ )

I've only planted one so far, Abies veitchii, and it was going into an existing garden so I had to dig carefully. I encountered a rock that seemed about a foot across. Getting it out just wasn't going to happen, so I dug around it, planted the tree next to it, and hoped for the best. Picture shows it in the new space, on the far left next to the stairs. It is quite slow growing so in theory it won't outgrow the space, and if it were inclined to, the rock will surely give it pause!

No problems with WFF, because I go right to the nursery...the big 60-70% off sale is the Friday after Father's Day...it was so mobbed in June, I had to park in the back pasture! Beefers were looking at me! But, the plants were amazing...the elephant ears were huge, I got a wonderful quince, clem, primulas, lily bulbs that were very cheap...I believe the sale is at the nursery only, not online, but worth the trip...most of the folks line up at 8, even though they open at 9, & go for the expensive stuff, like the huge terra cotta pots, & the trellises...

back from my quick search.

Not a Pine fan although Vanderwolf with its blue/green color looks nice.

Variegated Black Spruce - or Picea Mariana Aureovariegata I have had for a few years in a container as it was a little guy at purchase - finally planted it out last year so hoping for some faster growth - another with blue/green coloring which I am a sucker for - real nice choice!

Oriental Spruce Gowdy looks a lot like my Picea Orientalis Aurea Spicata, the difference being how large they grow Gowdy gets big and Aurea Spicata only 6' tall - excellent choice its new growth is very bright yellow in spring and a very deep green the rest of the year, really stands out - my was a 4" at purchase and is now only 12" tall although planted out last year so it should grow faster.

Is the Golden Oriental Spruce the same as Skylands? Always wanted that one.

I sent in my first 2013 plant order today to Avant Gardens. They have a couple of discounts available for early birds until the end of the month. Patti
[HYPERLINK@www.avantgardensne.com]

Astrantia major 'Vanilla Gorilla' 1 $14.95
Grow this Masterwort for its lovely white edged blue-green foliage! Discovered by Grad Grover at GET Group Perennials, as a sport of Astrantia 'Primadonna'. Soft pink pincushion flowers appear in early summer on 20" stems. Likes fertile moist soil that has good winter drainage. Zone: 4-7 Exposure: sun/pt.shade

Heuchera 'Fire Alarm'
1 $12.95 This new selection from TerraNova Nurseries boasts spicy hot red somewhat glossy foliage that deepens even more in the fall and winter. A hybrid of micrantha and villosa, it is reported to be more heat tolerant, making it a good choice for southern states. Pink tinted flowers in summer. We have had best luck planting Heuchera high (don't bury the crowns) and in well drained spoil.Zone: 4-9 Exposure: sun/ pt. shade

Heucherella 'Buttered Rum' 1 $9.95
Multi season interest! Caramel-dipped, deeply-cut maple leaves adorn this aptly named plant from spring to summer. Aity white Tiarella like flowers dance just above. In fall, the cool weather burnishes the leaves to a lovely rose red - a perfect complement to fall-planted containers. Color holds well into winter. 'Buttered Rum' differs from 'Sweet Tea' with having a tighter habit and a slight gloss to the foliage. 7" tall by 15" wide.Zone: 4-9 Exposure: sun/pt shade

Tricyrtis macropoda 1 $12.95
Pale yellow orchid blossoms with occasional soft purple flecking on arching stems . Grows 18-24', preferring an evenly moist soil with good winter drainage. Zone: 6-8 Exposure: pt.shade/shade

Hydrangea paniculata Bobo' 1 $19.95
PPAF. Another new panicle Hydrangea that stays under 3! 'Bobo'
Covered with large white blossoms on sturdy stems in early summer, the plants continue the show for the rest of the season as the blossoms take on rosy pink tones. Blooms on new growth, so winter hardiness is not an issue. Zone: 4-8 Exposure: sun/pt. shade

Baptisia 'Decadence Lemon Meringue' 1 $12.95
A new yellow flowered False Indigo from Hans Hansen, with attractive blue-green foliage topped with long, charcoal stems bearing spires of lemon yellow legume flowers in late spring to early summer. The contrast of dark stems with light flowers really pops in the landscape, delivering an excellent floral display. 3' x 3'.Zone: 4-9 Exposure: sun

Begonia grandis 'Heron's Pirouette' 1 $9.95
A Hardy, (yes, really, in zone 6!) Begonia with ruby tinted foliage and pendant pink-white flowers in late summer and early fall. Breaks dormancy in mid-late spring, so make sure you mark where it is planted so you don't disturb when planting anew in the spring. 18-24". Zone: 6
Exposure: pt.shade/shade

Dendranthema from Hannah 1 $9.95
Totally charmng, this very old fashioned perennial mum was shared with us by a customer, Hannah Lloyd, who said it persisted in her grandmother's garden years ago. We haven't come across it on any perennial lists, and can't verify it's cultivar name, but we think it is a great addition to the October garden. 1 1/2-2" double blossoms open creamy white and fade to soft pink. Plants will be tall and floppy unless pinched back in early summer. Zone: 5 Exposure: sun

Epimedium x 'Frohnleiten' 1 $12.95
A choice selection of Barrenwort, with olive green foliage and stiff stems bearing myriads of spurred yellow flowers in May. 10-12".Zone: 5
Exposure: part shade/shade Color: yellow

Lavandula stoechas 'Madrid Blue'1 $9.95
Showy two tone white and dark blue flowers beginning in June and carrying on for quite some time after. Fragrance is lovely, and plants grow 18-24" x 18 x 24". Okay, borderline hardy for us, but if sited in a sheltered spot in well drained soil, there's a good chance this showy lavender will return next year. Then again it's a Lavender. Zone: 7-9 Exposure: sun

Salvia guaranitica 'Argentine Skies' 1 $7.95
Powder-blue flower spikes on 3-4' plants combine beautifully with the pinks and purples of late summer asters. Blooms from July until frost and winters over in well-drained soil in Zone 6. Exposure: sun/pt.shade Color: blue

Veronicastrum virginicum 'Apollo' 1 $12.95
An American native, 'Apollo's' Culver's Root is an elegant and easy perennial, with leafy 3-4' stems tapering into long lilac-blue racemes tipped with vivid green buds, which bend and curve. It blooms in mid-late summer, and attracts beneficial nsects and butterflies.Zone: 4 Exposure: sun/pt. shade

Clematis alpina 'Stolwijk Gold' 1 $19.95
This patented Dutch selection of golden leaved Clematis has had limited availability, but at last we have been able to secure a small supply. Robin's egg blue colored nodding 2" blossoms adorn 6-8' vining plants in May and June. Use against a structure that has been painted in a rich deep tone to set off the yellow foliage color. Zone: 4 Exposure: sun/pt.shade

Hydrangea quercifolia 'Little Honey' 1 $29.95
A distinctive new form of Oakleaf Hydrangea, with glowing golden foliage all season. Slow growing and in need of a little coddling as a youngster, it grows 3-4' tall, bearing creamy white cones of flowers mid-summer through fall. In autumn into early winter, the blossoms takes on rose and russet tones, withich are accented by lovely burgundy tinted leaf color. Avoid leaf scorch, but maintain strong leaf color, by siting in an eastern exposure. 1 gallon plants. Zone: 5 Exposure: sun/pt shade

Disporum sessile variegatum 1 $12.95
We've had this form of Fairy Bells in one of our shade gardens for some time and it is loosely spreading into a sizable colony. It may in fact be a distinct cultivar whose name alludes us. Creamy yellow streaked variegated leaves adorn 12-15" arching stems from which pale soft green flowers dangle in mid spring. Zone: 4-8 Exposure: pt.shade/shade

I noticed that the WFF cat has gone downhill. It has lost it's place as the nicest garden catalog and joined the ranks of those that I don't even bother to read before putting in the circular file. But their prices have gone the other way.

I placed a small order with Bluestone as they had a few things I wanted that were on sale and they had a discount for placing an early order. I wanted another Exochorda to add to the garden as the one we have (different cultivar) is currently in Bloom. Pretty shrub in the dead of winter. Patti

I can't stop thinking tropical. Windmill palms and a huge selection of elephant ears and other exotics are available through Plants Delights Nursery. Anyone here using them? Really beautiful catalog, and a few more dollars on the usual plants. Still, over a page just for different Lady's slippers...

That brings to mind a question. Anyone here growing a baobab? I tried to start seeds when I had little kids, so you know what didn't make it. I want to try again.

very good quality - order something from them every year, graniteguiess (sp) orders from them as well - i have found that they need to be re-potted or planted when they arrive as the bark chips they are grown in are poress so unless you plan on watering daily get them in some dirt. just look under woody plants as they do not seperate them into conifers.

Robindog, glad they found you, now you have to deal with the possibility that your cc is being used by someone else. Horrible thought. Son thinks he lost his wallet yesterday in NYC while biking home from work. He cancelled his cards but such a pain. Good luck.

This past year DH got a call from a store in RI that tracked us down via the internet to ask if his wife had just ordered via the phone 5000.00 worth of flat screen TV's to be shipped to Minn. DH asked me about it and I gave him one of those looks. You crazy? He called immediately and cancelled the cc and as the store hadn't run the card all was OK and no other charges had gone through. The people from the store later called us back and said the phone call was traced to back to Nigeria. Scam for sure. I have no idea how they got my cc number. Patti

had a large credit with my favorite jm source topiary gardens - have 17 new maples on order - went small this year with 2 and 3 gallon maples and only a couple 5 gallon - most are very small dwarfs that will easily find new homes. more lawn will be removed again this year and expansion down back, another 20 yds of dirt will be needed - again...

as much as i like getting larger maples - many of the smaller ones i ordered several years back are now getting some size and being able to train and shape them from the start has worked out well. many of the larger ones, especially from out west, are grown for vertical height and not so much for attractive branching.

Nice list Allison. Can't wait to see your list when they have their 1/2 priced specials.

One of my orders consisted of those "Hot Lips". I actually bought them in plant form which I rarely do with plants that are "iffy" in my zone. Can't wait to see them bloom.

I should really get some Hot Lips Seed and winter sow them. If I decide to do this, I'll have way more plants than I need. Can you grow them there if you protect them, Pixie?

I can grow them as an annual, they die by Sept./Oct. unless I did them up and bring them in. :)

If I decide to do this, I'll let you know how successful they grow during winter sow. I have saved some great packaging from Santa Rosa Gardens and wouldn't mind sending some to you.

I'm finding out that seeds are hard to come by. If anyone finds a vendor, I'd appreciate knowing about it. It seems that the plant itself won't produce seed if the hummingbirds have been to active on them. I think eventually, my plants would be able to be split. In any case, let me know if seed for this is found.

Read that it's easy to root cuttings. I'll try this if the plant is big enough.

Ever see these? I love the color, they claim hummers flock to it and it blooms within 2 months of planting!!!
Allison, any thoughts, comments about this one??

I heard that the Victoria Blue Salvia is the best Salvia to grow.
Do you have any experience with this one?

I used to grow Salvia Victoria Blue every year from seed and plant several in groups here and there in the garden. They bloom until hard frost, and add nicely to bouquets. I'm doing them this year again after a long hiatus. At one point I thought I had too many Perennial Salvias and Veronicas, but they aren't quite the same. I'm doing the white this year, too.

Sounds like a nice selection, Pam. The salvias that the hummers liked best were Black & Blue, & 2 noid ones I brought back from my friend's farm in NH...

Love the hot lips! can't seem to find any seeds either Teri.
I like the Victoria but have to agree with Allison, tiny tiny flowers. Saw lots of butterflies on them but never any hummers. they do last, one of the latest flowers, still has blooms in November.

This is a macro so you can see how tiny they would look in the garden. nice if you have them massed together .
