By Swap or by Shop – My Plant Wish List

Posted by on April 9, 2009 at 2:14 pm.

I just got back from a shopping trip at Home Depot and Lowes and I have to say that I was very reserved in my shopping.

African Violets?Looking back over my planting lists and pictures, I have come to the realization that I have killed a lot of really pretty plants – like these African violets?  They didn’t even last long enough for me to commit to memory what they were called for sure.

I hope it matters that I have kept more plants alive than I have killed, but that may be due to the plants and not me.  I suspect that it may also have something to do with “things in pots” and the week long summer trip that we always take.

Anyway… on to the next plant.  Here is my current plant “wish list”:

  • Powis Castle Artemesia
  • lotus (now that I finally have the pond going)
  • more and more heirloom tomatoes and peppers
  • bronze fennel
  • side oats gamma grass
  • inland sea oats
  • Summer snowflake (leucojum aestivum)
  • Rain Lily (Zephyranthes spp.)
  • Eucalyptus
  • Cuban Oregano
  • Lemon Verbena
  • Plumeria
  • Cyperus (Umbrella plant)
  • Coleus
  • Caladium
  • Hostas
  • Southernwood (Artemesia abrotanum)
  • Juncus inflexus ‘Afro’ (a squiggly reed)
  • Acorus calamus ‘veriagatus’ (native sweet flag)

I’m sure I will find more before the season is done!
