Pinus 'Louie' and SuperTrouper Magenta + White Dianthus

I always try to take photos of cool plants in the stores even if I don't have approval from the purchasing department (aka my family). Here are a couple nice ones I saw recently. Something has to be pretty cool for me to stop and say 'ooh, I'm gonna post about that' so this is just some favorites.

SuperTrouper Magenta + White Dianthus caught my eye with the large ruffled flowers with striking white borders. I became a fan of dianthus after my 'lavender lace' bloomed for 3 months straight last summer.

Next, I've been eyeing white pines on car trips - enjoying the north woods vibe without the obtrusive pyramid shape of a spruce. I like them tall and skinny with wispy soft needles. Here is a pine that caught my eye at Allisonville Nursery the other day, Pinus strobus 'Louie'.
