I'm still pulling them out of a spot where the soil is too nice and they have too much room to romp.

I had not heard that weather stat. It explains a lot including my having no energy.

I tried moving this Clematis once and killed it. So I bought another — the one pictured here — which is now 12 years old and doing better than ever.

Supposedly warm and sunny tomorrow. Can't wait!

It's a Korean fir. Not too big because it is in more shade than it likes. The cones come out purple! If I had realized beforehand that this was a national get-together rather than a local Illinois/Wis., I would have signed up to go to the dinner and lecture etc.

Whoa! I've been reading Matt's blog for years as well. I don't think he came to our garden. I think I met everyone who did and asked where they were from etc. I've been to Klehm when the hoop houses were filled with blooming tree peonies. Quite an experience. I think I recognize one of the private gardens.

Apparently moving peonies sets flowering back at least a year. I have moved one of mine twice and am still waiting for flowers.

It's called the Crusher hat if I remember by Scala. I originally found it on sale on line at Terrain. But now I have seen it at the gift show at our botanical garden.

For a long time I only bought purple or subtle colored Heucheras but over the last few years I've gone for a little more drama but this one takes the cake.

Hostas, shrubs, ground covers — anything to reduce maintenance.

You'll be glad to know I have that hat in four colors. One is for gardening and I added a flowers to two them. They're crushable.

Only problem is that it's invaded the lawn and consumed the grass!

This is the first year that I would say this plant is mature. I think I let it flower last year and then cut it back. I figured I would do that again this year. What do you usually do?

I planted it as a rather small mail-order plant in 2015. This is clearly its 'third year leap".

I really had fun doing that one!

I love the yellow one but it has grown so slowly that I finally bought another plant and added it nearby but it is still not much of a clump compared to my other Trilliums. I should maybe move the 2nd one as it may be the soil or low light where they are currently growing.

Yes, it's a hollowed out stone that Mark found at a stone yard. Usually they separate them out and sell them for more but this got mixed in with the field stone.

Since you ask, it seems like mostly I see birds at this spot. But that's because we have a pond so there are other opportunities for drinks.

I have some growing under a huge arborvitae and next to some low evergreens. So very dry conditions. Took a while but now they make quite a nice statement.

Garden Visions has the largest selection but Plant Delights Nursery and Klehm's Song Sparrow (in Wis.) also carry quite a few.

I've had really good luck with that fern and have used it as a specimen plant and as a ground cover or swath planting in some areas of the garden.

Year 3 for that Comfrey and I think it has settled in nicely.

I had my husband test the comment setup as a reader was having problems, in case you were curious about this quirky message!
