- Anemone canadensis L. (Canadian anemone)
- Matteuccia struthiopteris (Ostrich fern)
- Mystery fern
- Japanese hops
- Alchemilla mollis (lady mantle)
- Filipendula rubra (Queen of the Prairie)
- Oriental Artemisia
- Horse radish
NOTE: It turns out Japanese hops is an invasive weed- strike one for the plant sales. Maybe it was mislabeled. I am going to pot it up and keep an eye on it and if it turns out to be bad destroy it.
The Eagan Garden Club had a variety of perennials of which I obtained:
- Osmundastrum cinnamomeum (Cinnamon Fern)
- Anemone sylvestris (Snowdrop anenome)
- Penstemon digitalis 'Husker Red'
- Filipendula ulmaria (Meadowsweet)
- Pulmonaria Augustifolia (lungwort)
- Pulmonaria Pink (lungwort)
The Dakota County Master Gardener was a frenzy of people grabbing plants. The gardening version of
the Running of the Brides. In the chaos, I managed to grab:
- cedar tree
- Siberian iris
- Phlox Shortwood
- Obedient Plant
Important Lessons Learned:
- Don't buy it if you don't know what it is (even if it is only a buck)
- Do bring a wagon. Gallon plants get heavy fast!
- Do get there at the start of the sale.
On a side note, I am going to use this planter for my herbs and keep it on the deck outside of the kitchen. So far I have rosemary, oregano, and lemon balm, all from the plant sales.
