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:
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’
Itea ‘Little Henry’
Hakonochloa ‘All Gold’
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.
