A Message from the Head Gardener

Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis)
I have been unable to tear She Who Must Be Obeyed away from the plant and bulb lists she received yesterday ... as I type, she is busily scribbling and muttering to herself about possible sites for this plant or that bulb.  She has speculated that we may need the assistance of Otahal and crew in creating her visions (some might call them delusions).  At the rate she's going, the Executive Producer may want to contemplate a second mortgage on the property.  Perhaps by tomorrow she'll come back down to earth and can be reasoned with.  In the meantime, I've included pictures of a few plants, but by no means all, she's been contemplating. 

Dwarf Flowering Almond (Prunus glandulosa)

Buddleia 'Attraction'

Jitsuko Ligularia (Farfugium japonicum 'Jitsuko')

Curcuma alismatifolia 'Pink Siam Tulip'

Prostrate Plum Yew (Cephalataxus harringtonia)

Heliopsis (ant optional)
