    Wow- really like the blue flax and the pink coral bells. I also found ‘Blue Wonder’ a dwarf catnip while looking up the Crater Lake Blue Veronica, that is actually quite beautiful!

    I think I am going to buy the White Lilies (probably daylilies ), and see about either the blue flax or Blue Wonder. I have the roses, but have no idea what colour they are going to be. I love blue, pink and white. Nice and soft looking IMHO.

    Combine that with light purple double impatiens and the garden will look quite pretty I think. Thanks everyone!!

    I love snapdragons. Mine reseed themselves and behave as perennials. Marigolds will also for a few seasons. Chicks and hens are a nice creeper that give color all year long. PS. I love forget me nots and snow on the mountains for ground cover! (but I have a lot of ground, hills and woods )

    Twilight, do you know this place? www.richters.com

    They have a catalogue that's like porn if you love herbs and veggies, and an annual pilgrimage to their garden centre near Uxbridge is well worth the trip.

    One of my favourite colour combinations also. Both "Bicolour" and "Eleanor" monkshood are white with dark blue edging on the flowers. They bloom later in the season and are fairly tall. I think white and blue are classic accent colours that you can mix with any other colour (red, orange, yellow). You might also want to look at Liatris (both in white and pinky-purple) for later season.

    (How can you tell I'm ready to garden. We got SNOW yesterday!)

    Springhill Nurseries is a catalog that sells all different kids of perrenials and annuals. From exotic to bizzare to beautiful.

    They also have suggestions for shade gardens, sun gardens, ground covers, butterfly & hummingbird gardens, all blooming summer gardens, pre-planned gardens and more. All you buy from them are roots, so the plants need to really grow before you'll get the kind of results they show. But maybe you can get the same plants from other nurseries around home.

    Lupines, bleeding hearts, lillies and Lilacs are my personal favorites

    Lilacs smell so good! When I get a house and have a garden I'll plant sweet peas. Love the smell of sweet peas.. they remind me of my grandma.
