plant lists from Fresh Air Sunday

Fresh Air was fantastic for me. Karen Gorden is terrific. I talked a blue streak.  Here are the lists mentioned:

Bulb list

Muscari  latifolium blue

Scilla ‘Spring Beauty’   blue

Allium ‘Atropurpureum’ purple

Allium ‘Purple Sensation’ purple-magenta

Hyacinthoides   non scripta  (English Bluebells

Tulipa tarda white  with a yellow interior

Tulipa ‘Spring Green’  white with a green stripe
My current great plants list:

Vernonia lettermanii ‘Iron Maiden’ cultivar of a native astounding.

Sciadopytis verticillata Japanese umbrella pine

Fothergilla ‘Blue Mist’

Chiononanthus virginicus

Itea ‘Little Henry’

Hakonochloa ‘All Gold’

Heuchera ‘Knockout’

I’ll be on Fresh Air with Karen Gordon who is a terrific dame, love her energy and interest. From 8:30 on we’ll be gabbing away about garden problems.

And then I’ll get back to blogging. About finding plants mentioned in the Globe columns: this is a real problem because I can only mention one place, then by the time you get there they’ll be gone. You’ve got to make demands and ask your nursery person to please get them in.

    Question re ever blooming Hydrangeas (blue mophead). Is ok to cut of the blooms when they are finished or should they be left? Thanks

    Cut out anything that looks dead and leave it alone. Give it more shape next June. M

    Hi Marjorie,

    I only caught a bit of your interview with Karen. You were talking about bulbs which squirrels don’t like. Are these the ones?
