Re: what's everyone ordering/planting for Fall?

I've grown Wall Germander but not Germander sage. The bot name for yours indicates it is a salvia that looks like a germander. Interesting. I don't do well with most sages, though I am trying that new blue one from HCG this year. Got it in spring with the perennial snapdragon 'Dulcinea's Heart'. If she truly is a hardy perennial, she has won my heart. Blooms for months! Gorgeous!

No ordering this fall. Too busy with what I have. I still have some heucheras and thyme to plant. And a lot of digging, dividing, and potting to do. I sold about 300 pots at my August plant sale so it is time to start rebuilding my inventory for next April's sale.

Subject: [CHAT] what's everyone ordering/planting for Fall?

Just placed my High Country Gardens order for the fall.  Everything that
summer/drought killed is getting replaced w/ a salvia (Wild Thing, Ultra
Violet or West TX Cobalt) and replacing a couple lavenders (England) and one
artemisia (Powis Castle).  Thank God for salvias, my yard would be a sorry
looking place w/out them.  I guess they don't carry the germander sage any
more. Too bad, I have 3 that have done beautifully when most things in pots
just up and croak. And the hummers & bumble bees just love them, but they
like all the salvias, so they're less picky than I am.

Anyone else planting anything interesting this fall??
