Thanks for all the tips Mame.
My ex has the most amazing clematis. He didn't plant it, the previous owners did. It must be 40 years old and it grow through the tiniest crack between the concrete and his house in his back yard. It must have hundreds of purple flowers when it's in full bloom. I've got one but it's not the climbing variety. I have a two rose bushes, one is a wilder variety with loose flowers and the other is more of a traditional english type. Yarrow is all over the drive way, which is not paved and the most spectacular poppy, I think it's a Russian - sadly, its huge and I do mean huge flowers only last a day or two.
I've got a few more perennials, one in particular I'm going to dig up, divide and plant along either side of the front walkway. Once the beds are completed I'll go searching for more plants. It's the trees and bushes that I'm most concerned with. I've had two die so I really want to plant the next batch in the best possible locales.
The link I put in an above post is the swankiest greenhouse. It's owned by the Hole family, Lois Hole was a previous Lieutenant Governor of AB, she had an almost saint like appeal in the Edmonton Area. I can't wait to check out the new digs.
