WANTED PLANTS AT A NURSERY (ナーセリーでお目当ての苗!)


There was a drizzly rain last Sunday morning.  I visited a local nursery with my wife and looked round to find several wanted plants.  We payed them using gift voucher of the nursery we won at the gardening contest.

At first, I found Acanthus mollis at the corner of perennials.  I saw its high flower stalks when I took a walk near my office last year, and I wanted to plant it in our garden.


(先週の日曜日の朝は霧雨でした。家内と近くのナーセリーに出かけて、欲しい植物を見つけました。ガーデニングコンテストでもらった商品券を使って買いました。最初に見つけたのは宿根草のコーナーのアカンサス・モリスです。昨年職場の近くを散歩していてその長い花茎を見て、うちの庭にも植えてみたいと思っていました。)



The second plant is clematis 'Shishinden'.  We planted it at the bottom of a rose arch two years ago, and we like it.  So, we want another one at the other side of the arch.
Shishinden is a Japanese large-flowered variety, tepals purple, double. The cultivar name is the name of an old wooden building of Japanese emperor's palace in Kyoto.


(二番目はクレマチスの「紫宸殿」です。2年前にバラのアーチの根元に植えて気に入り、アーチのもう一方にも植えたいと思っていました。紫宸殿は日本の紫色の八重咲き品種です。紫宸殿は京都御所の古い寝殿の名前です。)

The third is Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum, commonly known as the Chinese fringe flower.  We take a walk every weekday morning in our neighborhood, and We found and loved stunning evergreen tree with dark red leaves and red flowers in spring.  We found a standard young plant at the nursery.  We are planting it in a large terracotta pot with acacia in a week.


(三番目はベニバナ・トキワマンサクです。ウイークデイの朝は近所を散歩していますが、常緑の深い赤色の葉と赤い花を春につける素晴らしいこの木を見て気に入りました。そしてナーセリーでスタンダード仕立ての苗木をみつけたのです。今週末にでもアカシアを植えている大きな素焼きの鉢に植えつけるつもりです。)
In our neighbourhood, April 2015


In Sunday afternoon, we planted clematis and Acanthus mollis in the main garden.  They will flower in April and May.

  1. Dear Poirot
    There's nothing better than shopping for new plants and then adding them to your garden, is there? I have just planted a Lathyrus vernus (Spring flowering member of the pea family) in the garden and am enjoying its purple/blue flowers. I hope your plants all do well - I am sure they will.
    Have a good gardening week.
    Best wishes
