Thank you for visiting and purchasing plants at Wake-Robin. We have enjoyed seeing old friends and making new ones.
Until the next time,
Mike & Barb Murphy
On Saturday from 10 am until 3, we will present a final selection of our eccentric plants for 2013. All plants (and we keep finding more) are priced at 50% off to enable us to make room for propagating new plants.
Above: Thymus longicaulis
Not all members of the mint family are rapacious spreaders. These three are much more polite. From the top: Lamium orvala, Meehania urticifolia, and Lathyrus vernus ‘Alboroseus’.
Shortia soldanelloides var. magna
We still have lots of plants for our second open weekend. I am potting up seedlings of a number of things, including Virginia bluebells and three species peonies. Although small, they are inexpensive. And, go figure, we still have Trillium sessile left as well as a few lady-slippers.
It promises to be a soggy day on Saturday, so a gardening day it will not be. Stop on by.
From the top:
Sanguisorba hakusanensis, Disporum maculatum, Hydrophyllum virginianum, Trillium pusillum, Cardamine waldsteinii, and Pulsatilla vulgaris
Anemone nemorosa ‘Bill Baker’
Stachys macrantha robusta
Paeonia mlokosewitschii hybrid
Epimedium sempervirens ‘Violet Queen’
Lychnis miqueliana and Nepeta ‘Joanna Reed’
Closeup of Chaerophyllum hirsutum roseum
A typical form of Sanguinaria canadensis found in Maine
A semi double cultivar, ‘Jerry Flintoff’
A rare cultivar with much larger and fuller flowers, ‘Edith Dusek’
We have the common form at the nursery. We will also have a few of each of the named cultivars. They will be on our ” Just-A-Few” table.
