Re: need your thoughts on some plants please.

I was over at Emerisa Nursery in Santa Rosa late yesterday afternoon (went after Michelle's service- needed to walk around some before driving home) and noticed a new variety of Limerock coreopsis- it wasn't limerock ruby, but something else. The name of which now escapes me. I didn't get it- I actually do still have a Limerock ruby coming back from last year. And I really don't have room for anything else in my garden. But, I did get a new variety of salvia (miniata) that grows in shade!! And some various ground covers (thyme, sweet violets, and one other) to put around in the path in my garden wall. They did have Echinacea doubledecker- but I refrained- I think it is rather funny-looking. Kind of like cats with too many toes.

Donna, I have dbdecker & have ordered razzmatazz and think they are very different. I am not an Echinacea fan & these are the only ones to be in my garden. I'm not sure I really like dbdecker but we will see. Razzmatazz is gorgeous. I saw it in a friends garden last year & it was stunning. We were supposed to get Sunset but the shipment was delayed till May 15 & then until June 15 which is after we are closed so the order was canceled.
We have Stoplight & Sunspot in the greenhouse sitting side by side and I see little difference but perhaps a little variation in the leaf shape. Growth habit may be different but at this early point I cannot see a difference.
I am not taken by the Heucheras. My favorite is still Midnight Claret but only wish it was a bit more aggression grower. Regina is my favorite to use in containers. The color of this one picks up so nicely with many other plants.
I think we have all learned new is not necessarily better.
