Ordered Plants

Cool at night, good sleeping weather in the low 60s.  The days are still warm and humid, but with a taste of fall coming.

I ordered plants today from High Country Gardens.  First off, the Kintzley's Ghost honeysuckle to put on the metal obelisks in front of the meters.

Also:
White daffodils for the top of the driveway.
Early spring --- White Tete a Tete 'Toto' (miniature, 8" tall)
Mid spring --- Jamestown (1 to 1.5 feet tall)
Late spring --- plenos odorous (fragrant, a foot tall)
Very late spring --- poeticus recurvus (A foot tall, spicy fragrance)
also called Pheasant's Eye
And more:
A blue salvia.  I have such trouble with black & blue sage (Salvia guaranitica), so I'll try Salvia reptans and see how that does.  I'll keep it in a pot for the first year to get to know it.  It looks to be bushy with grassy foliage.  Photos show deep blue flowers.

And I ordered three more little Gro Low sumacs to keep adding to the groundcover mass in the Drive By garden.
