Your Favorite Plant of 2010
A brand new year for brand new plants!!!! ;-) Thought it would be interesting to share what our favorite plants of last year were (2010 if anyone forgot, lol!). It can be annual, perennial, shrub, anything.
Here was our "Favorite Plants of 2009" thread in case anyone wanted to take a look back.
For some reason it was really hard for me to pick out a favorite this year. There were so many great ones.
OK! Here it is Corydalis 'Berry Exciting' (in background). SO impressed with this plant. It held is bright golden foliage all the growing season. Planted it in early spring and it kept blooming until frost! It may not bloom as much once it "settles in" next year, but you never know.
Honorable mention goes to Geum rivale 'Flames of Passion'. Aint' she a beauty?!
Geranium yoshini 'Confetti' and G. renardii were amazing plants- though I better make sure they make it thru the winter before saying how much I liked them, lol.
How about you guys? What was your favorite plant of last year? Pics very welcome.
Any major duds? For me that would be Anemone multifida 'Anabella Deep Rose'. Think it needed a bit more drainage- it died out not long after planting.
Also didn't care for Heuchera 'Miracle'. It grew wonderfully large, but was kind of ugly. You know how you make too much guacamole for a party and the next day you go to get some and see it is a nasty brown/green color? For some reason that is what this Coral-bell reminded me of, a big bowl of bad guacamole. At least the summer foliage looked like that, don't know if it is nicer in spring. Another negative about 'Miracle' was it got rust on the undersides of the foliage. Maybe moving it to a sunnier site next year would improve that...
