Asclepias incarnata 'Cinderella' So fragrant, colorful, and carefree! A magnet for butterflies, 'Cinderella' is one of the easiest, most adaptable plants you will ever grow. Vanilla-scented flowerheads 2 inches across arise among the long, lush leaves all summer long. This native American plant loves full sun and thrives in heat, humidity, and even drought—yet is also quite winterhardy and permanent. Its heavy nectar production attracts all kinds of good bugs to the garden (the kind that feast on destructive predators!), and the fragrance is delightful. Best of all, this perennial is super-easy. 1-quart container. Z 3-8 | mid-/late summer | sun | H: 24-48", W: 24"

Baptisia 'Blueberry Sundae' �New

Asclepias 'Cinderella'

PPAF. Whenever you think Baptisia can’t get any better, it does. This selection offers a stunning display of deep indigo-blue flowers in late spring to early summer that outstrips previous varieties, all while acquiring a more compact, upright habit at maturity. The season doesn’t end with the flowers, however, as the foliage looks great all summer, and ornamental seed pods extend the beauty into fall. And since they’re such vigorous growers, the landscape applications are practically endless. Bareroot.
