As all this snow goes away, I intend to do a bunch of gardening.
I'm collecting thoughts, and thoughts mean pictures, and sharing.

filipendula rubra
Chinese Lace Flower.  (Tallest of the Filipendula; growing 2 metres high.  Feathery plumes of tiny pink flowers in summer.  Very attractive deeply lobed leaves.  Prefers protection from the heat of the day.  Will not tolerate the dry, so prefers a moister spot either in sun or semi shade.)


Day Lilies

Lilies: Guernsey, African Queen, Mixed

These are kinda ubiquitous, but I'll probably get some anyway.

Interesting Clematis variety. I already have some blue-purple ones.

Butterfly weed?

Japanese Red Maple
I like the dwarf ones with feathery leaves best. I can't tell from the photo if this has the right leaves.


Sour cherries!

(I'm avoiding fruit trees which require pollination.)


Burning bush?

Barberry-Red Leaf Japanese

Dwarf Blue Leaf Arctic Willow

Some other Willow

Golden Raintree

Sunburst Honey Locust

I also want these for indoors. Purple Passion Plant


Tree Lilac

Virginia Creeper (mm... ivy)

There will be raspberries. Probably blueberries, too.

Seedless grapes?

Japanese Painted Fern
I love ferns...


More later, I expect.

Found some seeds of yours. Cacti and daylillies and a couple others. I'll bring them along.
