Here is a little bit more information on some of the plants listed above.

The poppy anemones have been used as cut flowers as far back as the time of ancient Greeks,who valued them for their striking hues and smooth texture.The red petals of the flower are so vibrantly colored that the Greeks referred to them as "the blood of Adonis." The symbolism was carried over and adapted in the christian era, when the crusaders called the flowers "the blood of Christ."

Poppy anemones offer a number of great landscaping possibilities to make your garden remarkably attractive. They are most appealing and showy when planted in groups,either mixing varieties or maintaining a thought out color scheme.Anemones are also great planted in beds or borders with other small blooming flowers like forget-me-nots, or in a Japanese-style rock garden,where they add a wonderful touch of color.


Calendula is also called the pot marigold,a cheery companion in the garden.The vibrant blooms come in a range of sunny colors ,from creamy yellow to fiery orange. It needs little help or attention from the gardener,and the flowers last a long time.Calendula is very easy to grow, it will flourish in full sun or light shade.this flower does best in soil of poor or average fertility. Soil that is too fertile will result in weaker plants with fewer flowers.

Carnation is an old fashioned garden favorite with single or double,fringed blooms. Some varieties have a sweet spicy scent,although not as fragrant as the perennial varieties.Carnations come in a variety of colors like white,salmon,pink,scarlet,crimson,purple and bi-colors.

Daffodil is used today by many American gardeners to lighten up spring flower beds. It is one of the most well-known spring flowers. It does well in most climate zones of the United States. Daffodils are perennial bulbs which will increase from year to year and are hardy in cold and heat. They provide a fascinating variety of flower form and color.

The L.candidum (Madonna lily) is a native to grassy slopes of Asia Minor.It has large,fragrant,trumpet flowers on 2-6 foot stems and requires shallow planting in a neutral to alkaline soil.

Pansies come in a multiplicity of strains and varieties. A few of the most popular are the Swiss Giant strain,which has enormously large flowers that bloom in the early spring.A combination of several varieties of this strain makes a colorful,vibrant planting. Viking hybrids also have very large flowers that come in a rich assortment of colors.

The common, or English,primrose is native to Europe and the temperate zones of Asia. A hardy perennial type,it is a very early bloomer-it's flowering season is from late winter to early spring. The English primrose thrives in a cool,moist climate. Full sun is too harsh for its delicate flowers-even placing next to a light colored wall can provide too much reflected sunlight.Cool,humid environments,sheltered from strong wind and sun, are best.

There are many thousands of varieties of roses. Roses need good air circulation,protection from strong winds and full sun.Roses need consistent but not tedious,attention from spring until fall.While they are hardy,they will bloom best if well cared for.Fertilize modestly and water regularly,soaking the soil at least 8 inches deep.Weed and prune,as necessary, keep the area around your roses clean.Water roses early in the day and avoid getting the leaves wet,as this can spread black spot and other disease to the plant.

The vast majority of garden iris are the late spring and early summer blooming (sometimes re-blooming) Bearded iris. Flowers range in color over the entire spectrum,including striking bi-colors and even browns and near blacks;only true red is missing.All are excellent for cutting. Most thrive in beds and perennial borders.

Bay leaves whole or ground have a strong flavor (especially if whole leaves are torn or crushed).This herb can be used in meat or poultry dishes,particularly soups,pot roasts and stews;in fish and vegetable dishes;in pickles and in stuffing's for poultry and meat.

Fennel seed whole or ground has a sweet anise-like flavor.Can be used in breads,pizza and spaghetti sauces,fish sauces and pickles and as a garnish for baked goods.

Marjoram fresh or dried leaves or flakes,has a strong,sweet aroma and cool aftertaste.It is used in meat,poultry,fish, cheese,egg,vegetable and Italian-style dishes.


Parsley fresh leaves and stems ( which contain much flavor),or dried flakes;mild in flavor can be used to flavor and garnish almost any non-sweet dish,raw or cooked.

Rosemary fresh or dried needle shaped leaves with pungent tea-like aroma and bittersweet flavor. Used in meat, poultry and fish dishes; in stuffing's and breads;with vegetables; in salads and breads.
