Re: Spring plant orders

I bet I know where you ordered those bloodroot!

I can't be of much help on most of your list, but here's the few I can say something about:

Cardamine enneaphylla - I've only grown Cardamine heptaphylla, and it sort of limped along.  I think it needs a lot more moisture.

Brunneras - easy, but you knew that.

Geranium pratense 'Plenum Violaceum' - I ordered G. pratense bPlenum
Violaceum' and G.pratense bPlenum Caeruleum' 2 yrs ago (from 2
different sources) and they did not perform well compared to all my
other Geraniums. I think pratense are listed as slightly less hardy.
However, Geranium pratense bVictor Reiter' is doing just dandy.

Pulmonaria rubra 'David Ward' is stunning, but a real slug magnet. Slugs
never bother any of my other Pulmonarias, but this one needs protection
or it will be devoured.

Tellima grandiflora 'Forest Frost' - I ordered this from Shady Oaks
before they closed down their retail. A very thick, robust plant, with
seemingly no problems. Needs to be divided already. I don't really care
much for the flowers but the Foliage on Forest Frost is great. I grow it
alongside Brunnera mac 'Silver Wings' and several Toad Lilies.

Symphytum - I ordered Symphytum 'Goldsmith' (cream-edged) a couple of
years ago, but it was just solid green, so they replaced it the next
year. Slugs never bothered the green one, but they actually make
reservations to have a go at Goldsmith. Maybe it's the cream accent, as
on David Ward.

Good luck with your plans. Your Epimediums reminded me that I have yet
to receive Daryl Probst's 2003 catalog. I intend to buy some, but wonder
if I should use his old catalog and just have him adjust the pricing.

Subject: [CHAT] Spring plant orders

> Just like Kitty did a few weeks back, I'm posting a list of what's coming 
via mailorder to my doorstep this spring.  Some of it is coming as early
as next week -- I hope it warms up!

I'm familiar with many of these plants, but any tips on growing them
in East Central Illinois (hot, humid summers, zone 5b USDA) will be
gladly accepted.  :)  Ones that I'm not familiar with have an asterisk
next to them -- I definitely need help there!
