Bluestone catalog came - help me cut down my list
So the Bluestone Perennials catalog came and my list of wants from it came out bigger than expected. I hate ordering from them because the plants are smaller than anywhere else I have ordered, they are more expensive than elsewhere, and the coir pots are a hassle to deal with. However, they seem to have varieties I cannot find anywhere else.
Thus, can anyone give me feedback on the following? I have clay soil that is on the slight acidic side. Better substitution suggestions are welcome!
Achillea Ptarmica - Ballerina (supposed to be a miniature of Angel's Breath). Particularly interested on whether it needs staking.
Anemone Prince Henry - I like the deeper color of it. Does it bloom for as long as some of the other colored varieties such as Honorine Jobert?
Aster novae-angliae - Alma Potschke
Aster novi-belgii - Crimson Brocade
Aster oblongifolius October Skies
Catananche caerulea Major
Campanula coch. Bavarian Blue
Campanula glomerata Alba
Campanula persifolia Alba
Campanula persifolia New Giant
Coreopsis Desert Coal
Delphinium Magic Fontains series - Dark Blue Dark Bee, Lavender, Sky Blue, White Dark Bee
Delphinum New Millenium Series - Black Eyed Angels, Pink Punch, Purple Passion
Echinops bannaticus Blue Glow
Geum Double Bloody Mary (killed one last year, hope it was because I planted it in the coir pot)
Geum Totally Tangerine
Papaver nudicaule Flamenco
Phlox paniculata Dodo Hanbury Forbes
Primula vulgaris Belarina series (Belarina Cream, Nectarine, Pink Ice)
Salvia New Dimension Series - Blue
Sedum telephium Red Cauli
Any I should definitely keep or definitely get rid of?
