    Im super excited!! I went to the nursery today and got some new flowers! A few of them are going to seed, so I can use them for sowing. Heres what I got:
    1. Black-eyed Susan 'Rudbeckia hirta 'Cappuccino'
    2. Spike Speedwell 'Veronica spicata Royal Candles'
    3. Speedwell 'Veronica hybrid Gilles Van Hees'
    4. Echinacea purpurea 'Pow Wow White'
    5. Echinacea 'Sun Seekers Salmon'
    6. Blanket Flower 'Gaillardia x grandiflora Arizona Sun'
    7. Lilium asiaticum 'Tiny Diamond'.
    Its quite hot and humid out right now, 90 degrees with like 100 % humidity. I walk outside and my shins start to sweat. LOL I think I will wait to plants these guys for a bit.

    Thanks !!Oh, me too!! There were some items that were just beautiful, some Dahlias and Hydranga trees, just wow. Those stopped me dead in my tracks. I did not get those.:crying: I am however, very happy with the plants I choose!!:D I am concerned that the Rudbeckia will try to take over. Should I try to contain it in a pot, thats in the ground? Does anyone have any experience with them, and can offer advise? I ask, because there is wild Rudbeckia in the fields across from me, and they are close to 6' tall, and have spread out pretty nicely.
