Shopping List for the Floral Clock Garden

I know that I can't order seeds and plants for this until Spring (I put my note under February in my Future Log), but I'm so curious about this now that my mind won't let it rest. I at least want to decide which plants I will order, even if I have no idea when the flowers will open or close!

I live in Zone 6. Do you know your Plant Hardiness Zone?

If not, visit the Arbor Day site. Type in your zipcode and they will tell you!

I'm a little stuck on this one... I'm finding a lot of different scientific names

Postage Stamp Plant

I'm trying really really hard to not buy any more books right now, but I have a nagging suspicion that she develops this garden further in the revised issue of her book, and that she may include scientific names in that one. I had to Google a lot of these plants using their common names and got some conflicting information as to the scientific names. Does anyone happen to have the updated version of Sunflower Houses?
