One vendor specializes in shade perennials; Seabright Gardens. They have Hosta’s you cannot find in most nurseries, and chartreuse ferns that bring light to dark corners of the garden. The market had just opened when Patti and I wheeled our rented red wagon up to their space. While she investigated other vendors, I chose one after another lovely find: Cyrtomium Fortunei (Hollly Fern), three Hosta’s - War Paint, Dancing Queen, and Mouse Ears, and Cornus Canadensis - a compact evergreen, ground cover with white flowers in summer and edible bright red fruit in fall. Now to find their perfect placement.
