PINK SATURDAY! SPRING FEVER!

Let's browse through 
the
White Flower Farm
Spring Catalog....

Right off the bat I spy these - 

Beautiful Oriental Lilly's
these beauties bloom 
in July & August!
Boy, do they smell sweet!

Oriental Lilium Mix The Perfumed Garden

Ahhh, Dahlias
One of my favorites!
The most hardy,
blooming late into the fall.

A Shades of Pink Dahlia Collection

Who doesn't love Bleeding Hearts?
An early blooming perennial favorite.
This variety can't take the summer heat.
I have Dicentra Luxeriant,
which is a variety that blooms all summer.
They prefer part shade.
Which I have plenty of.

Dicentra spectabilis

I'd love to have a garden full of Foxgloves.
However, they are not hardy in my zone.
I am zone 4 and they are for zone 5.
Drats!

Digitalis purpurea Candy Mountain

Coneflowers are a great garden staple.
This newer variety is called
Razzmatazz,
Pink Double Delight.

Echinacea purpurea Pink Double Delight

Look at this variety of Phlox.
It's called Peppermint Twist.

Phlox paniculata Peppermint Twist

This Sedum is called 
Mr. Goodnight.
This is so pretty in the fall.

Sedum Mr. Goodbud

I love the Chicks & Hens.
I make a wreath every year!
I'll post a how-to  later
this spring.

Sempervivum Sampler

I hope you enjoyed 
a few of the 
selections that I have
been drooling over since 
I received this catalog!

Have more Pink Saturday Fun

Hi Robyn,
those are some awesome pictures! My favorites were the Bleeding Hearts and the Foxgloves. Foxgloves remind me of my grandmother. She loved foxgloves and hollyhocks.

I love looking through White Flower Farms, but they are a tad high priced. Fun to browse & dream!! Love all the pretty pinks you found!
