Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' PP#13,859. A lovely addition to the shade border, this Brunnera offers bold heart-shaped silver leaves scored with a mossy green margin and veins, creating a stunning effect beneath the masses of starry blue flowers in early spring. Beautifully layered, it forms a plump little plant that works well among other perennials, always calling attention to itself for its unusual color blend and profuse candelabras of blooms. It prefers acidic soil, but is generally not fussy about conditions, withstanding cold snaps admirably and tolerating soil of poor fertility. A classic! 1-quart container.

Paeonia 'Bartzella' �New 2006 American Peony Society Gold Medal Winner

The famous lemon-scented intersectional (Itoh) hybrid from Roger Anderson features fully double yellow blooms, often boasting red flames at the center. A mature plant can set 80 flowers or more in a single season. Shrubby habit, lovely color, resistance to Peony Blight, and tolerance of heat, humidity, cold, and poor soil from its Tree Peony ancestry. It boasts large flower size, fragrance, and extended bloomtime. Bareroot. Z 3-8| late spring/early summer | full sun/part shade | H: 3’, W: 3’

It’s uniquely colored, boasting a bicolor blend of peachy pink, ruffled petals with a thin, purple eye, a dazzling yellow throat, and deep rose-purple sepals. It needs no maintenance to bloom almost continuously throughout the season, and its diminutive size means it can deliver brilliant color almost anywhere. Bred by Dr. Darrel Apps. Bareroot.

Kalmia latifolia 'Keepsake’

Kalmia latifolia 'Keepsake' �New Arising in late spring to keep the Azaleas company, Keepsake begins with masses of 10-sided buds glowing like raspberry punch. They arise in 3- to 4-inch clusters that simply radiate color, putting the final spring bulbs to shame and ushering in the long season of summer color in your garden! The new spring foliage unfurls in bright reddish-bronze tones, adding some early color to the display. Very resistant to leafspot (the bane of native Kalmia), the leaves stay dense, glossy, and unblemished year-round, very plentifully held on these well-branched shrubs. Keepsake is the work of five generations of controlled crosses by master Kalmia breeder Dick Jaynes, who began his work in 1966. Plant this 4-foot-tall, 3- to 4-foot-wide evergreen shrub in any well-drained soil (slightly acidic is best, but not required) receiving partial shade. 1-quart container.

The bluetones remain into summer, creating a sleek, cool-toned appearance all season on a tree that demonstrates excellent resistance to deer and drought.

6/9/11 4:43:47 PM


Peonies Amongst Americas most beloved garden plants, Peonies were brought to this country by early European settlers, and traveled out west with the pioneers. Before refrigerated shipping, they were one of the few perennials to be mail-ordered, and no self-respecting garden was without them. The longest-lived perennial, they need nothing beyond well-drained soil and sun to bloom for many decades. We ship only healthy, freshly-dug, 3-5 eye divisions only in the fall— the prime time for planting.

Paeonia 'Bric A Brac' �New Wonderfully twisted, irregularly fringed petals of cream, streaked with green and rosy-red, adorn this midseason bloomer from master breeders William Krekler and Roy Klehm. Subtly fragrant, this is a single-flowered Peony, but the unusual hold of the petals makes it look as full and lively as a Parrot Tulip. 24 inches high and about 30 to 36 inches wide, it prefers afternoon shade and is hardy in zones 2-8.

Appleblossom-pink guard petals form the base for a collar of brilliant gold, topped by an inner tuft of short blush-pink petals on this double-flowered marvel from master breeder William Krekler. A truly breathtaking Peony, it flowers in midseason. Bareroot.

Terrific staying power in the vase distinguishes this lovely bomb-type Peony. An early bloomer, it sets a good number of lightly fragrant, large cream-to-rose flowers on very strong stems. The color variation is so great that often a single plant sets blooms of cream, pink, and rose, all in a single season! Roy Klehm introduced this Peony in 1980, and it has been a florists’ mainstay ever since. Bareroot.

Paeonia 'Top Brass' The tricolored effect of this Roy Klehm introduction has no equal in the Peony family! As many-petalled and exquisite as a Rose, it regales with a marvelous honey scent and long-lasting freshness in the vase or the garden. A plant in full bloom is a tropical sunset of colors, with shades of salmon, coral, and peach mingling with the ivory, canary-yellow, and appleblossom-pink primary tones. A single 5- to 6-inch bloom is a bouquet all by itself — but cut enough to fill all your vases, for this robust performer has color to spare!

Iris (Iris germanica) The kings of the Iris family, Tall Bearded varieties are taller and larger-flowered than all others, boasting a glorious rainbow of hues that includes many multicolored combinations. They are the last Iris to bloom in spring, and some even repeat in autumn. The flower form is exquisite, consisting of 3 upright petals called "standards," 3 downturned petals called "falls," and a short fuzzy "beard" at the base of each fall. Requiring at least 6 hours of direct sun, they thrive in any well-drained garden spot, but bloom best in slightly acidic soil. Very longlived and easy to care for, this perennial asks only to be divided every few years. Space plants 12 to 24 inches apart

Fruits Fruiting plants add so much to the home or garden. Not only are they delicious, but they often have lovely flowers, interesting foliage, and appealing fragrance in addition to fruit. Many are "self-fertile"—they need no male pollinator—and are all long-lived and attractive season after season.

Vaccinium corymbosum ‘Sunshine Blue’ This dwarf plant boasts attractive pink (not white!) flowers, an easy-care habit, and silvery evergreen leaves. Each plant offers 5 to 10 pounds of sweet, dime-sized berries. A self-pollinator with a low chill requirement, it is ideal for the south, though it thrives as far north as Chicago. 1-gallon container. Cannot ship to CA, OR, WA, MI.

Vaccinium 'Pink Lemonade' The World's only Pink Blueberry! (Vaccinium hybrid.) The ideal ornamental edible, ‘Pink Lemonade’ offers year-round beauty for the sunny border! In spring, the glossy green foliage is set with small, sweetly fragrant shell-pink blooms. By May in most climates, the first crop of berries is dotting this dense, well-branched shrub. The midsized fruit begins pale green, then blushes pink before ripening to deep rose. Glossy and firm, the fruit has a mild, sweet bite. Successive crops arise on this Highbush until mid-fall, when the foliage begins turning from green to yellow, gold, and finally reddish-orange. Even in winter, russet-red bare stems keep 'Pink Lemonade' interesting. Self-fertile. Cannot ship to CA, OR, WA, MI. Limited Quantities Available.

Glenora grapes are large, seedless, blue-black fruits with very thin skin, firm but tender flesh, and an abundance of sweet juice that contrasts nicely with the unique hint of spice in the bite. They arise abundantly following masses of tiny white blooms, beginning the grape season early. Resistant to Phylloxera (the devastating disease that nearly destroyed Europe’s grape crops) and to mildew, they grow and bear plentifully despite heat, humidity, and even poorly fertile soil. Prune to 8 feet tall and desired width. 1-gallon container. Cannot ship to CA, OR, WA, ID. Z 5-9 | late spring | sun | H: 8'

A delicious all-around midseason seedless white grape, ‘Marquis’ was developed by Cornell University and is earlier than Concord, more coldtolerant than most others, and very heavy-bearing. The large, round berries ripen on long, tightly-packed clusters of about 60 on vigorous vines that spread up to 8 feet wide. Resistant to Botrytis and self-fertile (so you need plant only one vine), ‘Marquis’ yields 15 to 20 pounds of high-sugar, lowacid fruit a year. 1 -gallon container. Cannot ship to CA, OR, WA, ID.

Small clusters of flowers attract bees and butterflies in early season, while the maturing fruit brings birds into the autumn garden. Very disease-resistant and tolerant of frost, this ultra-hardy vine can add 6 feet of growth within a single season. A lovely choice for arbor, trellis, or pergola. 1-gallon container.

Ornamental Trees Trees create a feeling of permanence in the landscape, offering structure and architectural interest. When selecting cultivars, bear in mind all of the ornamental criteria to consider, including overall form or growth habit; flowers and fruit; foliage changes; and even bark texture and color. Selecting and caring for trees is undoubtedly among the most rewarding aspects of ornamental horticulture, for the results will be treasured not only just for the next season, but also for posterity. Note: Height and width measurements listed reflect 10 years' growth.

Cornus kousa ‘Wolf Eyes’ A truly distinctive dogwood, with all the best traits of the species, plus superior heat and disease resistance (including anthracnose). The multicolored leaves sport wavy edges (more pronounced in full sun) with crisp ivory margins that outline prominent green “eyes.” The tree boasts a shrubby, spreading habit with flower-laden horizontal branching, becoming wider and more dense with maturity. 2-gallon container.

And in early spring, before the new foliage emerges, this lovely tree is dotted with bright, fragrant yellow blossoms from base to tip! This robust tree begins blooming at a very early age, and is easily pruned to desired shape — including a multi-trunk form for increased horizontal beauty, or even a compact size for container growth!

PP#14,537. (cv. 'Elsbry.') Beautiful every month of the year, this vigorous, partially-cascading evergreen tree is very heavy-blooming and fruiting, with hundreds of 2-inch flowers on just one branch at the height of the season! The flowers remain for 6 to 8 weeks, opening pale green and then maturing to pure white. They are followed by translucent strawberry-like fruit, a magnet for songbirds in late summer and fall. The glossy, leathery green leaves remain right through winter, sloughing off only after the new spring foliage arrives! A classic that outperforms all others, it was developed by John Elsley. Best in morning sun and afternoon shade. Worthy of a place of honor in your landscape. 2-gallon container. Cannot ship to FL.

Conifers Conifers are undergoing a renaissance in the American garden. Long-lived, hardy, and inviting, these evergreens are available in an increasingly diverse range of sizes, shapes, colors, and textures. They are among the easiest of all landscape plants to maintain. We offer a selection of distinctive and often difficult to find cultivars to suit every garden style and scope.

Picea abies 'Pendula' A unique Norway Spruce cultivar, this irregularly shaped weeping form can be trained into desired form. If left unsupported, it becomes a groundcover ideal for cascading over walls; if staked, it becomes a striking upright specimen. Stiff, evergreen ¾-inch dark green needles arise on spreading branches, adding handsome winter interest to Asianthemed gardens, small spaces, and containers. Very slow-growing. 1-gallon container.

Taxodium distichum 'Fallingwater' �New Destined to become a focal point of the waterside garden, this Italian introduction wows with a very narrow habit and long, pendulous branching. Less in need of support than other weepers, this selection of the native Swamp Cypress offers softtextured, willow-green deciduous foliage that turns attractive shades of gold and amber in autumn. The bare winter silhouette is striking in any moist to damp soil, and this tree improves with each passing year. Named for Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterpiece in Pennsylvania. 2-gallon container.

Ornamental Shrubs The foundation of the garden, shrubs combine the longevity of trees with the broad ornamental appeal of perennials. Many of today's cultivars are far more compact, floriferous, and vigorous than ever before, offering exceptional color and texture even in small spaces. We are honored to present Wayside gardeners with a selection of the best classic and new varieties. Note: Height and width measurements listed reflect 10 years' growth.

Rhododendrons

es.

nd

Botanically, all azaleas are rhododendrons, but trade practice calls the smaller-leaved and deciduous types "azaleas". Superb for home plantings, whether large or small. Attractive foliage (often evergreen), excellent habit and gorgeous flowers combine to make them superb for foundation plantings, naturalizing in woodland settings, and for planting in groups througout the landscape. They require little care. Rhododendrons and azaleas are shallow rooted and should not be planted too deeply. Select a location where they are somewhat protected from drying winds and winter afternoon sun. Culture: Cool, moist acid soil (ph 4.5-6.5) is ideal, particularly one that contains a high percentage of organic matter to retain moisture. A coarse mulch, 2 to 3 inches deep helps retain mositure and reduce weeds, eliminating the need to cultivate, which runs the risk of injuring roots near the surface.

Rhododendron ‘Hilda Niblett’

Rhododendron 'Hilda Niblett' Hilda Niblett is a truly beautiful, one-of-a-kind plant. Its unique, low-maintenance turtle-shaped habit makes it one of the most exciting Robin Hill Azaleas.

Ornamental Shrubs A prolific source of massed color, Buddleias have a very long blooming period that lasts from summer into early autumn. The long flower trusses are a seemingly unending source of cut flowers and garden beauty, and also attract butterflies. Plants normally grow 12 to 14 feet tall with similar spread, though we recommend cutting back each year to promote bloom — most will grow 6 to 8 feet tall in a single season. Culture: Easy to grow, Buddleias require little or no care and bloom the same year as planted. Toward the northern limit of their range, they tend to behave as herbaceous perennials, dying back to the roots each winter. They break their dormancy late in the spring, but once started by warm weather, they grow very fast. Since they bloom on new wood, we recommend cutting them back to 6 to 10 inches when planted and again each year before they start spring growth.

Buddleia 'Attraction' The reddest Butterfly Bush yet — and don't the hummingbirds know it! The deliciously fragrant blooms are freely produced from late summer into fall.

The bell-shaped flowers are delicately fragrant on this densely branched plant, banked by deep green foliage that extends down to the ground.

Fine-textured foliage of dark green arises in compact sprays on this dense, rounded, relatively fastgrowing Dwarf Hinoki Cypress. A selected seedling of the classic ‘Nana Gracilis,’ it quickly forms a plump globe-shaped mound that makes an excellent addition to the rock garden, accent plantings, and containers. 1-gallon container.

(Syn. 'Golden Spring.') Magnificent color changes transform this shrub in both spring and fall. Shortly after a heavy showing of fragrant yellow blooms held in 1- to 2-inch pendulous clusters on bare branches, the new foliage emerges in orangeand rose-tinted shades of yellow. Quickly changing to bright yellow, it maintains its color well, particularly in sunnier aspects. By midsummer the leaves are chartreuse to pale green, only to turn golden and orange for autumn. As this shrub matures, its branching becomes more horizontal, creating an elegant layered effect. 1-quart container. Z 6-8 | late winter/early spring | part shade | H: 6', W: 6'

Hydrangea macrophylla 'Blushing Bride' PP#17,169. ‘Blushing Bride’ is “my most significant introduction to date,” declares Dr. Michael Dirr, and we heartily concur. Bred from Endless Summer® x ‘Veitchii,’ this reblooming mophead is an improvement in every way over its famous parent. The florets are semi-double, adding depth to the 6-inch bloomheads; they emerge pure white and then acquire a faint patina of either pink or blue with maturity. Most importantly, they rebloom much more quickly than those of Endless Summer®, arising on stronger stems that hold well in garden or vase. The glossy foliage offers better resistance to mildew than its parent, turning brilliant shades of yellow, orange, and red in autumn. Highly recommended. 1-gallon container.

Clematis

y n to rs). ed, wth, on

nt

Extravagant displays of huge flowers in nearly every color (often repeating for an extended season) as well as adaptability, hardiness, and versatility rank Clematis as our favorite climber for American gardens. They never overwhelm their support, and make excellent companions to climbing Roses. Culture: Clematis prefer a rich, loose, well-drained soil that will permit a free run of the roots; it does best where its tops are in full sun, yet its roots are shaded (such as with low plants or mulch). Our plants are pruned and ready to set out. The roots must become established before top growth occurs, so it may take two or three seasons for them to reach their full magnificence. Clematis is divided into 3 groups for pruning purposes; see page 67 for complete pruning instructions.

Insignificant green flowers are followed by ¼-inch blue berries that acquire interest in winter, after the leaves are fallen, when birds feast on them.

Coreopsis 'Cosmic Evolution' �New PPAF. The years of intensive breeding work that went into the Big Bang™ series were truly worth it. Two- to three-inch creamy white blooms arrive in early summer, producing so profusely you’ll have long-lasting cutflower bouquets all season. During cooler months, shades of violet-red radiate outward onto the petals from the gold button center. This deerresistant beauty will bloom continuously all summer without deadheading, and it’s so easy to grow that it makes a great choice for beginners. 1-quart container.

PPAF. This delightful member of the Big Bang™ series may be smaller than its friends, but it lives up to its big name by exploding with color from early summer through early fall. Just 12" tall, this compact, wellbranched plant carpets itself in 2", semidouble to double, canary-yellow blossoms that are impressive in every setting, from containers to cutflower bouquets. Even the foliage gets in on the show, boasting a texture closer to the grandiflora types rather than the threadleaf and staying attractive all season. 1-quart container.

A wealth of 1½-2½", creamy white blooms with gold button centers appear atop a mass of bright green foliage, and once cooler weather arrives, a small, rich purple eye will wink from each flower.

Very finely cut foliage is mid-green and held discreetly below the blooms, which arch up and out from the plant on slender stems. Demonstrates breakthrough resistance to powdery mildew—even if you live where summers are long, hot, and humid. 1-quart container. Z 5-9 | early summer/late fall | sun H: 16-20", W: 36"

PP#21876. Let this flamboyant, spicy-scented, little perennial parade through your garden, and people will be stopping in the streets to get a better look! When the 1½-2" flowers appear in late spring, they’re a deep red with large white blotches in the center of each petal. As they mature, the white spreads and the red fades, until each petal is left with a gorgeous wine-colored ring around it.

Dragon Heart spreads naturally, weaving in and out of its neighborhood while tossing up bold magenta and black blooms as it goes. And it flowers far, far longer than most others — from early summer until mid-fall is not unusual! These 2-inch blooms are a rich, shimmery magenta with a black center and deep red veins. They appear on very slender amber-brown stems, their bright beauty contrasting with the soft green of the large foliage. It is the perfect cover-up for any leggy perennial, winding its way through the bare stems to create a carpet of brilliant color. (That's the secret of its appeal to roses, too!) 1-quart container.

PP#12,175. Intensely-colored 1-inch blooms of violet-blue with a large white eye begin appearing on this graceful plant in early summer, and unlike most Geraniums (which fizzle when the temperature climbs too high), keep coming until early fall. Fantastic in the South and Southwest, where many Geraniums have short and unsatisfactory bloom seasons. It's compact habit manages to send up more flowering stems in less space than most others. As a result, you get a much bigger bloom show, and the plant looks lush rather than rangy. (How many other Hardy Geraniums would you care to show off, solo, in a hanging basket?) 1-quart container.

Arguably one of the best cardinal flowers you can grow, this winter-hardy selection establishes quickly, sending up dozens of brilliant red blooming stems. Its growth is amazing (3-6 inches per week, well into summer!), and the foliage is lovely in its own right, the upper leaves turning a deep olive tone, while those below stay maroon. And since hummingbirds and butterflies can’t resist it, your border, foundation, or bog garden will have that much more appeal. 4-inch pot.

Shade Perennials Shady gardens are restful to the senses as well as to the soul. To help you create your own haven, we have gathered the most beautiful and unique selections from which you can create your special retreat, and in the words of Cardinal Newman, enjoy a garden that is "mystically a place of spiritual repose, stillness, peace, refreshment, and delight."

Actaea pachypoda 'Misty Blue' A splendid native perennial with the long life and multi-season appeal of a fine shrub, this new cultivar of White Baneberry offers bright white blooms on striking red pedicels, followed by startling white fruit marked with a black "doll's eye" that persists for up to 6 weeks in autumn. The finely cut blue-green foliage and bottlebrush-style blooms may remind you of Cimicifuga to which it is closely related. Impervious to deer and other nibbling creatures, 'Misty Blue' is a favorite among butterflies, and gardeners appreciate its ease of care. 4-inch pot.

Bergenia cordifolia 'Winter Glow' Syn. 'Winterglut.' An extraordinarily useful plant for partial shade, this Pig Squeak offers clusters of scarlet-pink blooms on burgundy stems just above its thick, leathery green leaves. Persisting all spring and often reblooming in autumn, the flowers are attractive, but just as impressive is the brilliant shades of red and bronze the foliage acquires in autumn and winter. Easy to grow in a variety of soils and conditions, including dry shade and coastal locations. It is evergreen and unpalatable to deer and rabbits. 1-quart container.

Brunnera x 'King's Ransom' �New PPAF. Possibly the only Brunnera more appealing than ‘Jack Frost’ is this cultivar, its variegated cousin! The mounding 5-inch leaves of muted green overlaid with silver are edged in bright yellow in spring, maturing to cream and remaining right through until frost. Covered in early spring with bright blue blooms that may remind you of Forget-Me-Nots, this introduction from Walters Gardens is a magnificent sight in the shade border. Drought-tolerant and unappetizing to deer, it can be planted fearlessly in open woodland gardens, but is so showy that it belongs front and center of the most prominent shade display. 1-quart container.

Large, dramatic leaves with wide, creamy-white margins provide a magnificent show all spring and summer in the lightly shaded border, especially when complemented by sprays of bright blue flowers in early spring. Plants reach 14 inches high and spread into clumps 18 to 20 inches wide. Best in light shade and well-drained, moist soil high in organic matter. 1-quart container.

Astilbe 'Vision in White' �New PP#1,8965. (A. chinensis.) Astilbes are known for their elegance in the shade garden, and this lovely member of the Vision Series is no exception. In midsummer, an abundance of large, creamy white, triangular plumes wave gently above feathery-cut green-bronze leaves.

Dryopteris ‘Brilliance’

Hardy Ferns Few plants impart such a light, airy, cooling effect, or provide such a range of textures for the garden as Ferns. They like a light, highly organic soil with ample moisture during their growing season, more so as the plants are becoming established. Our plants are of northern ancestry for extra hardiness, and perform better and better with age. Do not plant too deep; set the crowns at or just below soil level. A year-round mulch is recommended.

Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance' The long, shiny, elegant 1½- to 2-foot fronds of the Autumn Fern unfurl bright copper in spring, then go green for summer, and burnish russet-orange again in fall! Evergreen, tolerant of heat, humidity, and cold, and very adaptable to dry shade, this Fern is one of the easiest and most beautiful garden accents available. Water and feed it heavily the first year, then let it go—it withstands even the shade beneath trees, yet can take morning sun without burning or greening out! 1-quart container.

A cross between the Lady Fern and Japanese Silver-Painted Fern, it combines finely divided foliage, excellent upright habit, and silverygray fronds so luminous they appear to glow. Happily indifferent to soil type, and tolerant of more dryness than many other ferns. In multiple plantings, space them about two feet apart in partial to full shade. A wonderful groundcover or container choice, too! 1-quart container. Z 4-8 | part/full shade | H: 24-36", W: 18-24"

Hostas Hostas are widely recognized for the artistic beauty and richness of their foliage, unequaled in any other shade-loving plant. Their leaves are perfect for cutting, and some even boast fragrant or showy blooms. Combine them with ferns in the shade border to create a marvelous contrast in texture and color. We offer a selection of the finest species and cultivars.

Hosta 'Hudson Bay' �New PPAF. Born of an impressive lineage, most recently 'Eskimo Pie,' this flashier, larger version is also an overall stronger grower. The heavy, pest-resistant leaves have wider, brighter blue margins and lovely apple green jetting that contrasts beautifully with the creamy white center. Hummingbirds will grace your garden in early summer, drawn to the nearwhite flowers rising over the foliage on white scapes, while its vigor and versatility will make it a favorite for years to come! 1-quart container.

Hosta 'Sum of All'

s

Hosta 'Sum of All'

Hosta 'June'

This Hosta is left unnibbled by slugs and snails and unburnt by limited sun exposure, thanks to its extraordinarily substantial leaf thickness. Its bright band of gold, which edges each leaf, grows wider and deeper with each passing year on heart-shaped leaves delightfully crinkly and puckered. Giant leaves (up to 16 inches long) acquire their bold texture and interesting up-and-out hold, which gives the entire plant a hectic appearance, as if being blown by a breeze. The central green color remains fresh, shading unevenly into the band of gold. In late summer lavender flowers on 4-foot stems top the foliage. 1-quart container.

2001 Hosta of the Year This award winner remains our favorite for dense, weed-choking ground coverage in dappled light. Each heart-shaped tri-colored leaf combines a bright gold center with two shades of green around the edges. Substantial leaf texture keeps snails and slugs at bay. A low-growing, wide-spreading Hosta, 'June' is a must-have groundcover, border, foundation standout, or container choice. It needs a bit of dappled sunlight for best color, but can tolerate more shade than others. 1-quart container.

2000 Hosta of the Year

Spectacular in the woodland border or in a container near the patio, 'Sagae' offers huge, boldly variegated leaves boasting a frosty graygreen base bordered with irregular creamygreen margins. Of heavy substance, the leaves complement the vase-shaped growth habit. Large lavender flowers appear midseason on 40-inch scapes.

Hosta 'Pandora’s Box' The best things really do come in small packages, and this classic offers perfection in miniature with exquisitely patterned foliage, charming bell-shaped blooms, and a dense mounding habit that always looks fresh and lush. Each leaf is just 2 inches long, but boldly striped and streaked in white within a darker green margin. A sport of 'Baby Bunting,' it was introduced by Hans Hansen in 1996.

Hosta 'Stained Glass' 2006 Hosta of the Year

Every once in a while a Hosta comes along that has more to offer than merely beautiful foliage, and 'Stained Glass' is so meritorious you may wonder why you grow anything else! Not only are its gold-centered leaves stunning, but their texture is pleasantly puffy, their shape symmetrical, and their color true right through the worst summer heat. As if this weren't enough, the pale-lilac blooms are sweetly fragrant! Very tolerant of just about any soil and weather conditions, it is hardy from one end of the country to the other. Its leaves become more richly textured with each passing year of its long life, increasing its ornamental appeal. 1-quart container. Z 3-9 | mid-summer| part shade | H: 20", W: 36"

Hosta 'Mighty Mouse' This Hosta earns its name with very substantial, thick mouseear-shaped leaves that resist nibbling from snails and slugs, but its primary merit is its handsome variegation. The emerging spring foliage is bold blue-green with a creamy yellow edging; by summer the leaves have become gray-green and the variegation is white. Midsummer brings lavender flowers, while even the hottest temperatures cannot “green out” the variegation. A sandy, loamy soil is best, but this sport of 'Blue Mouse Ears' will tolerate even heavy clay, and thrives in any soil pH from acidic through neutral. Very long-lived, its beauty increases with each passing year while its size remains tidy and miniature. 1-quart container.

Hosta 'Popcorn'

l. ts

eaf ade . or

A magnificent tricolored cultivar with thick, slug-resistant foliage even from a young age, this slow grower spreads majestically in border or container. In spring, the cupped, nearly round foliage emerges pale yellow with blue edges and darts of light green. As spring turns to summer, the center of each leaf turns pure white, while the edges sport a blue-green blend. Heavily puckered and very substantial, the foliage withstands rough conditions beautifully. Bell-shaped light lavender blooms are held high above the foliage on 24-inch scapes. Introduced by Eleanor Lachman. 1-quart container.

Hosta 'Dancing Queen' The standout in any Hosta display, this elegant cultivar emerges in spring with bright yellow leaves that keep their color until midsummer, when they become a paler shade of primrose beneath lavender blooms on 28-inch scapes. Lovely pie crust edges ripple each leaf, and prominent "quilting" begins at a young age. Spectacular! 1-quart container. Z 3-9 | mid-/late summer | part/full shade | H: 18", W: 30"

Hosta 'Touch of Class' PP#13,080. Magnificently thick-leaved, this tricolored specimen keeps its cool blue tones right through summer heat. Its leaves are substantial, waxy, and nicely held, holding up to spring rains, summer heat, and autumn breezes. Part of this Hosta’s vigor and strength comes from the fact that it’s a tetraploid, boasting twice the chromosomes of most other Hosta cultivars. Slender 2-foot stems dangle 1-inch lavender-blue blooms above the foliage in summer, completing the ornamental appeal of this handsome perennial. 1-quart container.

Fragrant lavender blooms on 38-inch scapes complete the ornamental appeal of this substantial, imposing shade lover. Quite slug- and snail-resistant, its garden value increases each year as its magnificent foliage grows increasingly substantial, textured, and interesting. A superb choice for specimen use or mass planting, it achieves best golden tones in morning sun and afternoon shade. A multiple award winner and popular favorite ever since its introduction. One of the late Paul Aden's finest introductions. 1-quart container. Z 3-9 | summer | part shade | H: 3', W: 5'

Larger Flowers and Better Color than the Native Species!

Dwarf Crested Iris is an American treasure, native to woodland hills and creek banks, and this lovely cultivar greatly improves upon the species, offering blooms nearly 3 inches wide with fascinating color, vigorous growth, and quick spread. The pale blue falls are marked with gold crests and indigo-blue streaks on flowers held above the strappy foliage. Left alone by deer, content in nearly full shade, and even able to thrive in full sun if kept constantly moist, this is the ideal groundcover for all your shady garden nooks. 4-inch pot.

So white that they brighten every bloom around them, the abundant flowers of this Dwarf Crested Iris are the perfect patio, border, and edging standout. Their color intensifies in late afternoon and evening (as darker colors recede), making them the star of any setting. And this plant spreads so quickly that even a small planting this season will multiply over time into a large, glorious colony. 4-inch pot.

Groundcovers Groundcovers beautify your property while reducing labor and maintenance. Once established, they are a carefree means of carpeting difficult areas, growing ideally in shaded or partially shaded areas where grass will not grow, or in hard to reach or sloping areas where mowing is difficult. Use mulch 1 to 2 inches deep the first two seasons for rapid rooting of runners.

Cotoneaster horizontalis Truly a four-season shrub, this semi-evergreen begins spring with starry pink flowers, followed by glossy, round berries of bright scarlet that persist throughout autumn and well into winter. Small, rounded leaves of deep green turn reddish orange to maroon in autumn. The growth pattern of this groundcover is dense and rather stiff, with bristly shoots jutting outward in a herringbone pattern. Useful for espaliering or scrambling over stones in a rock garden plus general groundcover applications. Slow-growing and unappetizing to deer, Rockspray Cotoneaster attracts bees, butterflies, and birds into the garden, and is quite drought-tolerant once established. Unusual and useful in every season. 1-gallon container.

This ultra-vigorous groundcover leafs out in pale green with generous, irregular white margins on small, neat leaves. Modest white blooms dot the plant for several weeks, but it is the variegated foliage that truly differentiates it from the masses of plain green groundcovers. Expect it to form a pleasingly mounded, dense plant within a single season, and to spread fully 3 feet wide within two years of planting. Best in challenging situations, it can become invasive if pampered with rich, moist soil and ideal environmental conditions. A lifesaver plant that challenges the most difficult locations. 1-quart container. Cannot
