Re: what's everyone ordering for Spring?

Ceres, I ordered Clematis 'Franszika Marie' double, lavender blue flowers and blooms on both old and new wood. I hope I have better luck up here than in Beaufort!

I didn't order the Sambucus 'Black Lace' because I know we have several at the nursery in 3 or 5 gallon pots and I get a good discount. So then I can have a bigger plant.

How do you like your Barberyy (Helmond)? I have a space in front of the house right by the window. It's maybe 3 feet from the edge of the window to the edge of the house. I need something tall and thin, obviously. And I want to put a window box in as it's a huge window and will get lots of light. There is already a fairly tall barberry on the other side of the front door so I thought one on the other side would look OK. The Juniper I ordered is the 'Saybrook Gold' and will look fabulous with the purple of the barberry. It's going under the window as it only gets 2-3 feet high.

Also, how do you like the Lilac 'Sensation'? I just think it's beautiful. How long does it bloom?

The Rose 'Ebb Tide' is beautiful. I've never seen one in person so you'll have to let us know if it's really that color. I was thinking of buying Rose 'Paul Bocuse.' I love apricot colored roses and this one looks fabulous!

Andrea, I have 'Sensation' Lilac, Helmonds Berberis & also Sambucus 'Plumosa
Aurea'. I ordered S. 'Blk Jack' and Sambucus 'Blk Lace'. What Clematis did
you order? I also ordered Rose 'Ebb Tide'. I couldn't resist that deep
color. Just hope it is truly as dark as the photo.
We have a real chg in weather today. It was sunny and cold but of
normal temps. We had the 2nd warmest Jan in history which was great for the
heat bills.
I have rcd my seed orders and plan to start a few very soon. One is
the new 'Blk Pearl' ornamental pepper which I saw at the Mo Bot gardens last
fall. Appears I have a weakness for black plants this season.
