Looking for spring bulbs and then....................

There are 2 very good garden centers in the Kitchener area; one Belgian Nursery and one Grand River Garden village.
They both had tempting flyer's in the newspaper and I just had to check out both.
Looking for spring bulbs .
Belgian was a bit of a disappointment just did not find what I was looking for, did not have a good selection plus their prices were somewhat higher.
At Grand River Garden village, success;
I found a mix called Wine

and Roses
These tulips are for the front garden to replace the ones that did not come true to colour this spring .
Could not pass up the cheery yellow of
King Alfred Daffodils either , they will be used for naturalizing in the back garden.
THEN...................
I wandered into the plant and perennial section,cause there were BIG, GIANT, HUMONGOUS signs stating 60% off Fall Sale.
How could I not check it out?
Here are my finds:
A small Seviceberry tree to entice birds to the back garden.

Japanese tree peony, Rimpoh , a deep red colour;

Baptisia, Purple smoke;
Clematis, Lincoln Star, raspberry pink with dark pink stripe;
Gallardia , Sunburst Yellow;
Woo Hoo what a great bargain! Love the fall , can hardly wait to get home and plant them!

Ooohhhh Rosemary, I LOVE your choices. We have a serviceberry tree. The birds do indeed love it. That clematis is gorgeous, and so is the peony. I'm a sucker for maroon and/or pink. We have the baptisia; really like it.
Love the color of your tulips also!

Nice, nice!
