Picked up some new 'delicacies' from a plant fair two weeks ago ; managed to get them in the garden today .As follows ;

Campanula punctata 'Pink Octopus'
Petroboykinia watanabei
Tricyrtis formosana 'Pink Freckles'
Tricyrtis formosana 'Variegata'
Sanguisorba hakunanensis
Lunaria redidiva (Perennial Honesty)
Sorbus rehderiana
Phlox divaricata
Phlox carolina 'Bill Baker'
Dicentra macrantha
Ranunculus acris 'Citrina'
Dryopteris sieboldii
Athamanta turbith ssp.Haynaldii
Allium 'Ostara'
Geum 'Blood Orange'

Now I'm telling myself , " the garden is full" ; (until the next time) !!!

    Campanula punctata 'Pink Octopus' I've had those in my garden. Very intriguing flowers. However, looked miserable after first winter. Managed to save one specimen in a pot and looking forward to its flowering (any time soon). Hope you are more successful with yours.
    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    Thanks for the comments ; I am intrigued by the perennial Honesty as I assumed all were biennial . Looking forward to that one !
    C.punctata 'Pink Octopus' looked interesting on the card attatched to the stall , thought I'd give it a try ; will keep careful watch on it .
    I really don't need any more plants at all as my garden if FULL ! It is very difficult to resist buying more from plant-fairs ; (so much more interesting than 'run of the mill' GC stock ) .
    Oh yes , I also acquired Ratabida columnaris f.pulcherrima ; never tried this , but I've got a perfect sunny well-drained position for it following a somewhat 'head-scratching' and frantic garden re-structuring !

    Got exhausted just thinking about it ! Anyway , all planted in their rightful positions , well watered in , and am now awaiting some decent rainfall !
    Only have the weekends to do jobs like these as I'm normally 'whacked' on weekday evenings !
