Meet my new friends

I don't know what happened, one minute I was just strolling along, and the next I knew, I was putting them in the car. I had to find good places for them, so I asked them to stand in two rows for identification. I then seperated them by sun and shade, a couple couldn't make up their minds. So here we are as follows, from left to right, back row first.

shade Deutschland Astilbe (Astilbe x arendsii) White
sun Coreopsis 'Full Moon'
sun Dwarf Russian Sage (Perovskia) 'Little Spike'
shade Siberian Bugloss (Brunnera macrophylla)
sun Clematis 'Hagley Hybrid'

Front row:
pt.sun Charm pisifera 'Iceberg' Comefer
shade Maidenhair Fern (Adiantum hispiulum)
sun Oriental oregano 'Amethyst Falls'
pt.sun Foxglove (Digitalis x mertonensis)
sun Heather Allegro (Calluna valgaris)


  1. Funny how that happens! You found lots of great plants, and I'm sure you'll have lots of fun finding places for them.

  2. Hi Claudia, I'm very late stopping by to visit and thank you for the Blotanical fave. Spring gardening (and going to work) has kept me away from the computer lately and I'm still way behind.
    I know all about plants following you home! It looks like a nursery here with all the 'friends' waiting to be planted. I first need to clear spaces for most of them by thinning and weeding.
    You certainly found some beauties. Is the Hagley Clematis pink? I think I saw that one at a local nursery and am very tempted to buy it.
    Happy gardening!
