The Beauty of Young, New Plants

It's great to work at a nursery that grows such cool plants... and to so easily get an early taste of the seasons that lie ahead! Here's a couple of pics of some of the newest varieties that we are growing this year, and in this case, pushing a little ahead of their regular schedule, just so we can see how they do, and what they look like.

Above, left to right, top to bottom:

Heuchera 'Electric Lime'
Heucherella 'Golden Zebra'
Viola 'Heartthrob'
Heuchera 'Havana'
Dicentra 'Candy Hearts'
Heuchera 'Midnight Bayou'
Brunnera 'Emerald Mist'
Brunnera 'King's Ransom'

Above, left to right, top to bottom:

Heucherella 'Sweet Tea' (very cool!)
Heuchera 'Midas Touch'
Heuchera 'Sugar Plum'
Geum 'Eos' (sweet!)
Heucherella 'Tapestry'
Heuchera 'Fire Chief' (I really like this one)
Heuchera 'Electra'
Thalictrum ichangense Evening Star Strain

I really enjoy putting and seeing these "assorted" trays together -- I don't know how anyone could resist!

Here's to dirt under your nails.

Hey Mark,
I love this post and the way you're trialling all of these new varieties!

I especially like how well organized they look and you included the names for each plant!

Take care,
