The Hottest and Best Coneflower Hot Papaya

Ne

(Echinacea purpurea; PP#21,022) More than a decade of breeding was dedicated to this stunning double orange Echinacea. The 3- to 3½-inch flowers are nearly red — utterly new to the family — with some deep pink, lilac, and yellow mixed in for good measure. They arise in great numbers on maroon-streaked stems, with as many as 10 blooms present at once. And like all Echinacea, this plant stands up beautifully to heat, humidity, drought, cold, and poor soil. The flower color is very stable, and it won’t fade even in brutal August sunshine! From Dutch breeder Arie Blom. 1-quart container.

(Echinacea purpurea; PPAF) New colors and big doubleflowered form make this new Cone-fectionTM Echinacea a joy! The 4-inch blooms open strawberry-peach, with a single layer of rayed petals around a chocolate-brown cone.

Very vigorous, resistant to heat, humidity, drought, poor soil, and deer, and quite compact. 1-quart container.

Darling of the Old South!

New! Apple Carolina Red 2 Crops a Year from this Early Bird!

Originating in the South more than 200 years ago, this conical deep red apple harvests months before many others, with a crisp, sweet flavor ideal for snacking and pies. Bushy, upright tree frequently reblooms in summer, bearing a second, smaller crop in autumn. Perfect for fresh eating! Bareroot.

The far more flavorful ancestor of Golden Delicious is an American apple from the early 1800’s, renowned for its sweet (19% sugar content!), spicy flavor and rich aroma. A medium golden-yellow apple with crisp, sweet yellow flesh, it’s the perfect dessert variety, and also makes good sauce, cider, and fresh eating. Far, far more flavorful than its famous descendant, it must be tasted to be appreciated! Bareroot.

The first apple ever bred in North America, “the Roz” (as it used to be called) is a crisp, tart variety that originated in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the 17th century and was eventually grown by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello. Excellent for storing, this red-blushed green apple is delectably “russeted” (has a rough textured coat). Famous as a cider and juice apple, it is crunchy and sweet when eaten fresh, and the flavor actually improves with storage! With a sugar content of nearly 13%, “the Roz” is simply delicious! Large trees are very heavy bearers over a long, late season. Bareroot. Z 5-9; blooms in spring, fruits in early-mid fall; sun; H: 8-15’, W: 15-25’

Rare and Highly Sought, it’s a Breathtaking Beauty!

(Lilium lancifolium ‘Flore Pleno’) An absolute treasure, the rare and highly prized double-flowered Tiger Lily displays the same deep orange-scarlet color and dark chocolate speckles as single-flowered Tiger Lilies, but adds layers of reflexed petals on 4- to 5-inch blooms. Stamen-free, they are perfect for allergy sufferers. It doesn’t require as much of a cold period as most Lilies, so it is particularly well-suited to Southern regions. Bareroot (Pack of 3).

Allium’s huge, round flowerheads covered with bright stars are dramatic in the garden and very long-lasting (fresh or dried) in the vase.

Tulip Lady

(Tulipa clusiana) Lady Tulips love to make themselves at home where they are happy, so from a single planting you can expect many decades of descendants. They spread not by seed but by offsets, which you can hurry along, if you like, by digging up the bulbs every few years in autumn and gently separating the young bulblets from their parent. Generous gardeners will share these bulblets with friends; the rest of us will replant them quickly, and revel in the glorious increase of color next spring! Bulb (Pack of 10). Z 3-7; early spring; full sun; H: 6-12”, W: 6-9”
