Nurserysman Conf

I attended a small portion of the Nurserysmans Conf on Thurs.  My husband had 
knee surgery so only attended two sessions.  The opening and keynote speaker 
was Roger Swain.  Sorry but he could not inspire me.
    Several of the vendors had a weeping pussywillow tree on display as a new 
product.  It was labeled only as Salix pendula which did not seem to be a cpt 
label to me.  I would think there are other Salix that would be labeled as 
pendula.  I did not like the branching habit of this ornamental tree.  It seemed 
to me a mature tree would be a pruners nightmare.  Maybe it would even as an 
immature tree.
    Blue Bird Nursery displayed Scutellaria resinosa 'Smoky Hills' which is a 
new Great Plains introduced plant.  Listed as a rounded form up to 12", 
blooms from May-July and the blooms were bluish/purple with 2 sm white patches.  
The bloom looked much like an Anglonia with a open face.  Also  another, 
Scutellaria scoridifolia 'Mongolian Skies' which is the gd cover type and also a GP 
plant.  Both hardy to Z4.
    Another new GP intro is Sedum tatarowinii 'Mongolian Stardust' which I 
thought would be a delight trough plant. 5-8" tall x 12" wide, hardy to Z3 and 
collected in Mongolia by Harlan, owner of BlueBird.
