The Blue Ridge Community College landscape class designed a plan for the Hospice Elisabeth House. They would like to install it this fall in the landscape construction class. I was hoping you could help me through your blog by posting this along with a materials list in hopes that some nurseries will have things they would be willing to donate.

Here's their wish list:
Thuja occidentalis – 2
Liriope muscari – 100 1 gal.
Erica carnea – 18
Nandina domestica ‘Nana Purpurea’ or ‘Firepower’ – 9
Perovskia atriplicifolia – 1
Fothergilla gardenia ‘Mt. Airy’ – 5
Hydrangea anomala subsp. petiolaris – 3
Echinacea purpurea – may have enough
Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Filifera Aurea’ – 6
Delosperma cooperi – 61 1 gal.
Ilex cornuta ‘Dwarf Burfordii’ – 14
Crytomium fortunei - 13
Potentilla tridentata – 575 1 gal. or in flats
Heuchera sanguinea – may have enough
Pansy/Impatiens – 2 flats
Hemerocallis ‘Stella De’Oro’ – 26 1 gal.
Clematis x jackmanii – 2

Other items:
Shredded mulch
Bird baths
Bird feeders
Shepherd’s hooks for feeders
Organic matter – compost, peat moss, etc. to amend soil

If you have any of these items that you would care to donate to the Elisabeth House project please let Carolyn know. Her number is: (828) 694-1840 or you may contact her by e.mail at .
