Garden neglected

Emily's Ranunculus looking
gorgeous
Last weekend I didn't set foot in the garden once. What with the short days and competing holiday-themed tasks to do, it was pretty sad for me not to check in with my little plants.

I did, however, make it to the San Francisco Botanical Garden 2 for 1 sale. I was looking for two xeric shrubs. One to put near the bench to replace a black sage (Salvia mellifera) which I find a bit boring, and another to anchor the bed we cleared the week before.

I had a list of potential candidates, and found none of them. I did however get a few plants that I hope will do instead. And a few others for various other spots in the garden. I got:

Hibbertia astera
Cussonia spicata
Carpenteria californica
Dianella tasmanica (variagated)
Daphne odora

I know all these guys will do fantastically in the garden, and I can't wait to plant them next weekend!
