What did you get new this year for your garden?

I have most of my new acquisitions in the ground, finally, in this insanely early season. I mostly have shopped garden club sales and catalogs, with a few side trips to favorite nurseries. Here's a list of some of the things I'm most excited about. Oh yes - I must note that I started a spreadsheet this year of my plants, and I'm up over 300 unique varieties so far - call me a geek, you'll be right, but I prefer to think of myself as a "collector"!

Brugmansia 'Charles Grimaldii'

Polemonium 'Stairway to Heaven'

Verbascum 'Clementine'

Azalea 'Mandarin Lights'

Heucherella 'Gold Zebra'

Rose 'Prairie Sunrise' (a Bucks rose)

Alcea ficifolia 'Happy Lights' hollyhock (from seed)

Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost'

I also got an unnamed Epimedium and an unnamed Euphorbia from garden club sales, and a nameless viburnum, and a money plant, and Centranthus ruber, and various other goodies.

How about you - prize acquisitions?
