AMAZING ANNUALS

Here’s a fantastic annuals list. It’s one I ordered from Mason Gardens for my clients and am still in the process of getting together for them. I mentioned I’d have this up on Fresh Air on Sunday. So I’m late. Everything’s late.

Agapanthus ‘Black Buddha’
Alternanthera ‘Purple Knight’
Angelonia ‘Angelface White’
Canna ‘Durban’ (African Sunset)
Coleus ‘Purple Duckfoot’
Dahlia ‘Bishop of Llandaff’
Dichondra ‘Silver Falls’
Ipomoea ‘Midnight Lace’
Ipomeoea ‘Sweet Caroline Bewitched’
Plectranthus ‘Mona Lavender’
Salvia guaranitica ‘Black and Blue’

I’ve done a bunch of videos for the Globe and Mail and the column starts on May 28th. Monique Dobson took this picture of  us working away.  Shooting video for Globe and MailI must say we had fun and they should be on the Globe’s web site this week.

Here’s a really piece that was in the Edmonton Journal:

    That’s a great article Marjorie. Thank heavens my neighbourhood leaf blower moved because I was about to strangle it. Not her the blower 🙂

    I dug out the grass years ago in the side and back and have never regretted it. Makes for muddy paths but the toes enjoy it and that is a gift after a long day. I’d do the same in the front though neighbours cats would make it their litterbox so have held off.

    Your list is intriguing. The names alone make me want to search them out. Happy Spring and may colours of your garden bring you sunshine.

    A lovely limited palette Marjorie. What about Matthiola longipetala in vintage white…. though I have to say I can’t find it anywhere in toronto….and love it

    Hello Marjorie, I come here to live vicariously given that my garden consists of two geranium plants on my balcony… It’s been a long time 🙂

    You mentioned in a previous post that Jack had heart surgery. I hope he’s recovered and thriving.

    Cheers, Colette

    There are so many annuals, really good ones this year that I’m gobsmacked by them. I just cull out the ones that work with my plants and hope they’ll help people make some decisions.

    Two plants well placed can be stunning. Just keep them healthy
