Gosh, some lovely Ns. I've never even thought of Nepeta as a useful plant, but I now have an area which desperately needs help. It's on a pretty barren slope, and I've made a haphazard casual wall from some leftover rocks. I think Nepeta might very well do a nice job there to minimize the ugliness of it!

For those who are interested, I made a big boo boo when it came to the pitcher plant, which is Newfoundland's Provincial flower. I don't know why I said it was sketched by David Blackwood, because it WASN'T. :shock: It was done by another Newfoundland artist, Carl Stevenson. We have a couple of Carl's original oil works.

I don't have any new ones to contribute; mine are narcissus and nest too.

This was in a lilac standard two feet from my front walk, but I did not see it at all until the leaves fell in the fall.

Edie,,in actual fact, they were just a bit over 6 ft, the tree in front of it is a standard Korean Lilac, and it's 6 ft.
Truth be told,,the were just plain ugly by virtue of their size; wrong location for them, but they loved it there. In other beds they were about 3 ft tall. Check out how huge the leaves were; overshadowed everything in that poor little 2 ft wide flower bed,,,at least if they'd had the beautiful scent like "normal" nicotinas,,that wouldn't have excused their faults,,, but, nada, zilch,,zero scent.

Got them from Gisele's greenhouse, in Chelmsford; she did tell that me they were bigger than normal,,but,,whoda thunk?? Won't be planting them again; too much plant for too little flower!

Marie,
I never had much luck with nasturtiums...the cabbage worms like them too much.

My N's are rather sparse:

Some very interesting contributions but Lulu, #1Goalie takes the cake I think. LOL!

The ninebark is very nice, I don't have one.... yet.... I'm bebating between the Coppertina and the Diablo...

Nigella is very pretty.... hmmm, another one for the seed list....
