Dianthus 'Coconut Punch' �New
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. Its longer stems and heat and humidity tolerance simply sweeten the deal! 1-quart container. Z 4-9 | early summer/early fall | full sun/part shade H: 12", W: 12"

Dianthus 'Ruby Sparkles' �New
PPAF. From its intoxicating spicy fragrance to its magenta blossoms embellished with a deep ruby eye, everything about this plant makes it a true garden gem. The 1-2", single blooms have deeply serrated petals, and they blanket the compact mound of grey-green foliage in early summer and early fall, bringing in the butterflies but holding no interest for deer. 1-quart container.

Geranium 'Dragon Heart'
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. Z 5-8 | summer | sun | H: 16-24", W: 18-24"
