2001 Plant Delights Nursery February Newsletter
As I look out the window through the cold, ice filled screen, I quickly turn to pages 24 and 25 of our printed catalog. There I find Cannas. Lots of vibrant, alive and colorful flowers that scream at me by saying "SPRING IS COMING - REALLY!" Spring was here, if only briefly, and we enjoyed the heck out of it. Kind of like when you're at a restaurant and they bring out a tray full of tasty food - to the guy in the next booth. We think that this ice-encrusted day is an anomaly, and spring will wrap its warm arms around us again tomorrow. We've already started shipping to southern locations on February 12, and the pace is certainly picking up. We've had many people place orders so far, and ordering early definitely improves your chances of getting everything you want. Right now, there are several plants that look especially good, including Tiarella 'Jeepers Creepers', Sisyrinchium sp. 'Puerto Yellow', Pulmonaria 'Dark Vader', Euphorbia robbiae and Trillium underwoodii. One last thought.
