Bluestone Perennials shipped me a nice package containing heucherella (Buttered Rum), veronica (Aztec Gold, echinacea (Hot Papaya) and agastache (Summer Glow) plants that I purchased in late February:

David’s Dragonfly Farm also sent me some nice daylily clumps, White Parasol and Seductor:

The bulbs are blooming!
