Vesseys, a Prince Edward Island based garden institution since 1939, is once again offering their dependable catalogue of annuals, perennials, tree, shrubs, etc., plus a little excitement in the way of new plants never before offered by them.

Besides the standards, Vesseys also carries some of the more trendy plants. The White Bat Flower is an unusual looking specimen that has to be lifted come the fall, like dahlias. Under the "heartbreakers" category, they have the Himalayan Blue Poppy. I have tried several times to get these elusive stunners to make an appearance in my garden, but to no avail. Probably best to admire them from the catalogue. I don't know anyone who has successfully kept them.

I'm also attracted to the hardy Hibiscus Syriacus, but we have several attempting to become established already so I'd better wait to see what kind of success we have.
In the meantime, to quote Carl Sandberg: "Nothing happens unless first we dream."
