Cute and hairy, no herb garden or kitchen is complete without this selection. Its grass-like foliage can be snipped regularly to deliver its mild onion flavor to loads of dishes while its fresh flowers are edible and lovely in fresh salads.

Strong, pungent aroma pervades this dense, bushy plant and its long, narrow, deep green foliage. A great seasoning for sauces, dressings, and loads of different foods, French tarragon loves full sun and demands a sandier, well-drained soil to thrive. An ideal plant for a raised bed or a well-drained container on the deck. Perennial.

CHAMAEMELUM Mature: 10-15"t. x 12-18"w.

ZONE 4.

Incredibly useful, incredibly easy to grow and good looking besides, Garlic Chives will be a welcome addition to any garden, herbal or otherwise! Long, tubular, grass-like, gray-green foliage makes a fragrant clump in the garden and features the strong scent of garlic and onions when crushed. Garlic Chives are ready for use immediately and constantly throughout the season… the plant grows aggressively so you’ll never be short of it for flavoring a wide range of meals throughout the season. Numerous flower stalks arise from each grassy clump in summer producing globes of small, fragrant, creamy white flowers in August and September. Garlic Chives love full sun and will spread in the garden, so be sure you look to contain them to an area or grow them in a container for best results.

AGASTACHE

nobile Roman Chamomile Mature: 3-6"t. x 12-15"w.

ZONE 5.

Easy to grow with outstanding texture, this herb can multi-task in the landscape while providing great scent and a boatload of herbal uses in the home. Tolerating full sun or partial shade, this chamomile is a low, creeping, yet aggressive growing plant with fine, almost frilly, fragrant foliage. It can create a thick stand and often has been used outside the herb garden as a lawn substitute, but you will find it an easy going, easy growing plant that works well in any herb or container garden. The fine textured foliage serves as a great backdrop for small daisylike flowers with white rays and yellow center that bloom from early summer through frost. Flowers can be dried and used in soothing, great tasting teas that have a long, detailed history of use as treatment for a wide variety of ailments. Its apple scented foliage can be used in sweet smelling potpourris with ease. Perennial. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FHCHN01

CORIANDRUM Mature: 30-36"t. x 14-24"w.

ZONE 5.

Not only does Anise Hyssop smell great, it looks great in the garden, especially in the summer months! Tall and aggressive, Anise Hyssop forms an upright bush that carries a cone of buds at the top of each stem by early summer. The buds open in mid-July showing off mesmerizing purple color, featuring a wonderful fragrance and attracting birds, moths and butterflies like they were magnetized! Its strongly anise-scented foliage can be used, cooked or uncooked, in salads and a wide variety of prepared dishes to spice up any recipe and it is a “must have” plant for teas. Anise Hyssop loves full sun and can be used in the ground or in a container with spectacular results!

Frilly and tasty, the leaves of this herb are an absolute must for any Mexican or Asian cooking! Continual pruning prevents flavor-altering flowers, while multiple plantings will allow you enough cilantro to put the snap in your salsa all summer and into the fall. Cilantro loves full sun but tolerates part shade and grows equally well in the ground or in containers.

A lovely, delicate looking bush plant with long, narrow, medium green foliage that sports a clean, fresh lemon scent. Superb when used fresh on almost any dish, it’s especially good in teas and potpourris. A sunny to part shade spot is perfect in the garden but lemon verbena will grow very well in deck containers or in a windowsill pot inside.

FOENICULUM vulgare ‘Purpureum’ Bronze Fennel

graveolens Dwarf Fernleaf Dill

Mature: 3-4't. x 12-18"w.

Size: 18" t. x 18" w.

Fine, frilly and flavorful, this dense form of dill puts the zing in dressings, salads and cooked vegetables. Dill loves to grow in full sun, does well in containers, and is very easy to grow. Keep snipping to prevent flowering, which will negatively alter the taste of the plant. Avoid snipping the main stem when possible. Harvest side shoots. Annual. 4.65

ZONE 4.

Tasty and decorative, this aggressively tall growing herb will look great with its bronze foliage and wispy texture while providing great flavor to a number of foods. All fennel varieties are key components in creating the flavor of Italian sausage and have a myriad of other cooking uses, but in the past it was widely used medicinally and to ward off evil spirits! While it may not keep evil from your home today, it will provide you with great use in the ornamental garden as its color and texture combines very well interplanted with roses or even planted and combined in mixed containers. Bronze Fennel can seed aggressively so you may want to cut off its chartreuse colored flat heads of bloom when they appear in the summer.

Once you grow this herb, you’ll wonder how your cooking lived without it! Loaded with a strong lemon flavor prized by Thais, lemongrass is used extensively in teas, soups and stews. Easy to grow, it multiplies rapidly and is perfect for growing in a container indoors on a sunny windowsill. Be forewarned: your cat will love lemongrass as much as you will! Annual.

‘Tarpan’ TARPAN STRAWBERRY

Size: 12-36" t. x 3-4'w.

NEW Mature: 10-12"t. x 15-18"w. ZONE 5. This selection will change how you look at Alpine strawberries forever! ‘Tarpan’ is far more robust than the species, with plants that grow vigorously while flowering and fruiting magnificently. Even better, where most Alpine strawberries have small white flowers, ‘Tarpan’ serves up big, deep pinkish-red blooms that jump out against the backdrop of deep green strawberry foliage. How about its fruit? In a word: outstanding, with sweet taste and small to medium sized berries that will continue to keep on coming from early summer to frost due to this plant’s day neutral flowering. You won’t be able to get enough of this easy care, versatile plant and its tasty fruit, so use ‘Tarpan’ in the garden, in strawberry pots, in hanging baskets or anywhere you might want to sneak off to get a daily treat around your home! #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

LAVANDULA ZONE 7.

What a beauty!! Deeply cut, grayish green foliage is loaded with sweet lavender scent and is prized for a multitude of uses from food flavoring, to teas, to potpourris, to scented oils and more. A heavy bloomer with deep, lilac-blue flowers, this variety demands well-drained soil and good air flow to perform its best and really showcase its beauty.

ZONE 7.

You’ll be stunned by the outstanding look of this exciting, sweetly scented selection. You’ll swear it almost shimmers as long, narrow, gray-green foliage sports a very thin cream edge completely surrounding the leaf giving it a magical look as the sun reflects off it. Just the foliage might be enough to convince you to grow ‘Silver Edge’, but once it begins flowering, you’ll be sold as spikes of bluish-purple flowers rise above the foliage in July and August to provide a breathtaking color contrast with the foliage. You may use its fragrant foliage in sweet scented potpourris but you’ll treasure it in the garden or in a container even if you don’t find an herbal use! Like all lavender, ‘Silver Edge’ loves extremely well-drained soil and its hardiness depends on excellent winter drainage.

Size: 18-36"t. x 3-5'w.

ZONE 4.

A delight for its ease of growth and remarkably strong chocolate scent and flavor, chocolate mint is the perfect herb for flavoring sweets and in a bracing, flavorful herb tea. Chocolate mint will take a licking and keep on growing due to its tough, aggressive growth characteristics and deserves constant pruning since the most pungent, flavorful leaves are its newest ones. Chocolate mint will grow well in the ground but might be best in a container where it can be used year round while controlling its most aggressive tendencies. Perennial.

cataria Catnip Size: 1-3' t. x 12-24" w.

ZONE 4.

Treat your feline friends to a treat they can’t resist! Catnip is a dream to grow, easily forming a dense, bushy plant with dark green foliage. Its spikes of purple-spotted white flowers will catch your eye. Catnip makes pretty tasty tea for human consumption but you’ll have to fight your cat for it. Be sure to put it out of reach so it can survive continued feline visitations! Perennial.

basillicum ‘Boxwood’ BOXWOOD BASIL NEW Mature: 12-15"t. x 15-18'w. ANNUAL Put a different textural spin on basil with this small leaved beauty that is almost as fun to touch as it is to taste! With just as powerful of a scent and taste as ‘Genovese’, ‘Boxwood’ puts another look and texture in your garden while still providing you with the pesto power that you want from your basil. Small white flowers top each branch as it matures and, with all the branching on this tight, globular plant, that’s a lot of flowers!! Be sure to harvest before bloom for the best taste and, like all basil, ‘Boxwood’ loves warm weather and despises getting water on its foliage. Grow ‘Boxwood’ in full sun in the ground or in a container where its texture and form will really shine. #1 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FHOCBX01

Size: 18-24" t. x 12-15" w.

A culinary must, this herb’s shiny, cupped green foliage is prized for its strong aroma and taste in all Italian foods, fresh tomato salads and pesto. Genovese basil craves a sunny, warm garden spot and thrives in containers on a deck or a sunny kitchen windowsill. Continually pinching is very important to prevent blooming, which radically alters the taste of the plant and makes its flavor less desirable. Annual.

‘Red Rubin’ RED RUBIN BASIL NEW Mature: 18-24"t. x 15-18"w. ANNUAL Alluring color matches alluring taste on this basil that will be a welcome addition to your garden, if only because of its deep, dark mahogany purple foliage that will be a visual oasis in a sea of predominantly green garden plants. ‘Red Rubin’ is nearly exact in flavor to ‘Genovese’ and can be used for all the same mouth-watering pesto uses even though ‘Red Rubin’ pesto will be far darker because of the foliage color. In the garden, ‘Red Rubin’ tends to be a bit looser in form and rather than white bloom, striking violet-blue blooms top each branch. For best eating purposes and flavor, harvest before flowering and for best garden growth, plant ‘Red Rubin’ in full sun in the ground well after danger of late frost has passed or in a container where its great foliage color will mesh perfectly even with flowering plants! #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

This All-American Award winning plant is just the thing to spice up your herb garden or any other flower bed with its outstanding form, scent and powerful good looks. ‘Magical Michael’ forms a tight, dense, rounded plant that is thickly populated by shiny, deep green foliage that ooze that magical basil scent. By early summer it is coated with clouds of small white flowers that have as powerful an effect on attracting bees and butterflies as the foliage has on attracting admiring humans. ‘Magical Michael’ can make a great pesto, although it does not have the oil content of green basil, and it repels aphids and tomato hornworms in the garden making it useful as well as beautiful and tasty!

Easy to grow and so useful for literally hundreds of purposes! Spearmint’s attractive medium green foliage is perfect with foods like meats, fish, jams, and jellies but also makes a superb tea and even gives bath water an invigorating splash!! A vigorous grower, it’s best to grow spearmint in a sunken pot in the garden or in a container on the deck or patio where its runners can be cut and controlled. Perennial.

The perfect herb for flavoring all kinds of food, especially desserts, with its delicious minty, citrusy taste and scent. Deep purplish-green foliage is very attractive and the plant is very easy to grow.

This low-growing hybrid found originally in the mountains of Eastern Europe forms a low spreading mat of fragrant, dark green leaves bearing clusters of white flowers with a tinge of soft pink. ‘Biokovo’ slowly spreads by underground shoots or runners and its very long flowering period, starting in spring and continuing through mid-summer, sets it apart from other Geraniums. An especially useful low groundcover or edging plant, ‘Biokovo’ will make itself right at home in a cottage or woodland garden, but also works well in mixed containers. For best performance and flower power, plant it in full to partial sun and in fertile, well-drained soil. Once established ‘Biokovo’ is fairly drought tolerant and, added to the fact that it is deer and rabbit resistant, this tough, compact groundcover is a definite keeper. And, if that was not enough to make you a believer, the added bonus of a nice burgundy-red foliage color in the fall may put you over the top!

Shorter than cooperi, the bright yellow foliage grows only 2-3". Tough and fearless, it will produce sunny yellow flowers even in the face of drought and poor soils. June.

Members of the Dianthus Confetti Series produce a profusion of small, serrated blooms above low growing, tufted, evergreen foliage. This popular cultivar has tiny, starry, deep burgundy flowers that begin blooming in mid-May and continue into late spring and early summer. The bloom will even repeat later in the summer if plants are sheared back lightly after the first blooms fade. The handsome, narrow evergreen leaves are bronzy-green and form a thick carpet. Thriving in sun to partial shade, these tough, hardy plants are fast to spread and self-sow freely, making them ideal as a groundcover. Their low profile makes them the perfect addition in tubs and mixed containers, patio niches, rock walls and gardens. This easy care perennial groundcover is a good choice for poor soils and can be easily divided in early spring or fall. 3" pot - sold by the flat only (18 plants/flat) . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ZONE 4.

‘Ralph Shugert’ is an expert at making the common look uncommon. Everyone knows that Vinca is a tough, great looking groundcover that is somewhat overused, somewhat commonplace and, most times, overlooked except when it is in bloom. It’s very hard to overlook ‘Ralph Shugert’. Its outstanding variegated foliage with a thin yet distinct band of creamy white, surrounding a deep green, lustrous center on each leaf makes this plant stand out even when it’s out of bloom! Of course, the bloom is outstanding starting in April as loads of bluish-purple flowers open and continue to show right into late May. And don’t worry that this variegated plant may not be as strong or as tolerant in the landscape as other Periwinkle tend to be... ‘Ralph Shugert’ grows just as well, puts up with the same shady conditions and is just as much of a landscape survivor as all the other Vinca selections... it just looks a little less common! 3" pot - sold by the flat only (18 plants/flat) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ZONE 3.

‘Atropurpurea’ has all the attributes of ‘Alba’ except it tends to grow a little more aggressively and flower with wine, reddish-purple flowers against its deep green, lustrous foliage. Its great look is made even better by its ability to grow without blinking an eye in the deepest, darkest spots of the landscape and its determination to hold the soil fast in areas where erosion can be a problem. Plant ‘Atropurpurea’ in big groups and do nothing more after they are established than sit back and enjoy the easy care show.

This small scale native will make a big impression on your landscape because it survives and thrives in some of your toughest landscape spots while looking fresh and colorful throughout the year while doing it. Dense, low and able to spread by rhizomes, this selection quickly will become an eye-catching groundcover that features dark green, three-lobed foliage that forms a thick, weed choking mat. It tolerates full sun as well as fair amounts of shade, while continually throwing out waves of single yellow flowers from April through early July against its deep green foliage backdrop. Barren Strawberry does not fruit, but it does attract its share of native insects making it a valuable plant for landscape critters as well as you.

Why should you buy plants like Alstroemeria that are not going to be hardy in your garden over the winter?? Because there is nothing like them in the world and they will thrill you with their colors, compactness and their ability to bloom like maniacs from mid-spring through early fall. With deep green foliage and dense branching, they form a dense spreading mound that tops its stem ends with buds in early to mid May. These buds open to 1.5" diameter blooms that cluster and completely obscure the plant at times throughout the next 4 months giving your garden, whether in the ground or in a container, a riot of color that will keep you riveted. Alstroemeria or Peruvian lilies are originally from the Andes region in South America, but the Princess Series comes to us via New Zealand with the goal of providing color with very little care. Plant Peruvian lilies in full sun and give them regular fertilization throughout the season so they can perform at their peak! 8" Terra Cotta pots ‘Princess Ariane’ (Golden w/copper highlights) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

This long overlooked native perennial deserves a prime stretch of real estate in any landscape with its massive flower show, its fine textured form, and its electric fall foliage color display. It’s a plant for all seasons and one that is extremely easy to grow and adaptable to moist soils or dry. Foliage emerges deep green and willow-like on a myriad of thick, whip-like stems that form an open, flowing, yet dense mounded presence in the garden. Mid-May is heralded by the appearance of thousands of small, light blue, five petalled stars that group at the top of the stems and put on a show that will draw gasps from your neighbors. The flower show continues throughout June but, once it’s done, this plant doesn’t just fade away. Its foliage keeps its cool, clean green throughout the summer and, as the weather cools in the fall, explodes into a supernova of yellow color that can be seen from across the yard and beyond. Bluestar loves full sun or light shade and is as carefree in the garden as you can get! #1 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ZONE 3.

Anthemis has been a European favorite, but not so in America where many Anthemis plants grow tall and become leggy. The exciting new genetics found in ‘Charme’ offers a plant that covers itself with flowers, but stays incredibly dense and full at about one foot tall. A tight mound of feathery, green foliage covers itself with buds in late spring that open to a massive show of 1 inch wide, bright yellow, fragrant, daisy-like flowers in late June, continuing right on until frost. ‘Charme’ is the epitome of the easy care garden plant as it thrives in average to poor, well-drained soil in full sun and is drought tolerant once established. It’s perfect for massing near the front of a garden or even for use in a mixed container garden for a spectacular summer show. Also, unlike other Anthemis, ‘Charme’ is a poor self-seeder meaning is doesn’t end up in unwanted places in your garden!

Armeria has always been a great little novelty plant that has cute flowers, blooms early and gets out of the way when “the more exciting stuff” comes along. ‘Ballerina Red’ is here to change the perception of Armeria in the garden with a plant that might be small but delivers scads of bloom for weeks and weeks just daring you to ignore it. Ignoring it will be hard because, even though ‘Ballerina Red’ is small in stature, it just keeps on blooming with intense, deep red 1" diameter pompoms held above a deep green, strap-like bun of foliage throughout the spring and summer. It’s easy care nature, wanting only a sunny, moist, well-drained spot and little else will add to the allure of this compact powerhouse that will deliver a real show when grouped or massed in the front of any garden.

Aquilegia are delicate airy plants that brighten up partially shaded gardens in mid to late spring. However, this dense selection has a dwarf habit that is far less airy, but still loaded with full sized, 2-3" blooms normally found on the taller varieties. A dreamy colorful combo of blackcurrant colored calex petals surrounding buttery yellow corollas on these nodding, short-spurred flowers is incredibly vibrant, as flowers open in May and continue into early summer. ‘Blackcurrant Ice’ is deer resistant and, even without flowers, it’s stunning in the garden with its compact mound of blue green foliage against red stems. Its dwarf habit, large flowers and easy care nature make it a great selection to add to any rock garden, container or perennial shade garden. #1 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

These profuse, showy flowers will certainly be the talk of your garden and the tremendous show of bloom will delight you from May through June. Besides great color, one of the big reasons we chose ‘Winky Mix’ for inclusion in our mix is because its plants are sturdy, uniform, and compact… perfect for sales in containers and superb in the mixed border and woodland gardens. Plant ‘Winky Mix’ in full sun or partial shade for the best garden performance.

The flowers are most definitely worth seeking out in April and early May and are fully double the size of its Asarum relatives. As an added bonus, the plant remains evergreen to 10°F and is perfect for planting in shady, humusy areas.

Once early September hits, this neat form is coated with an exquisite veneer of 2" diameter, deep purple, yellow centered daisies that will demand your attention.

Get ready for riotous foliage color that may have you squinting from the glare!! ‘Colorflash Lime’ has the market cornered in hot foliage color with frilly, deeply cut leaves that emerge in the spring in such a bright, lime-yellow color it will have you groping for sunglasses. As it matures, the foliage forms a tight, dense mound that morphs to an almost neon lime-green color that will light up any tired garden spot. Numerous thick, sturdy flower stalks rise from the foliage in mid-June and begin to open late in the month to reveal beefy heads of soft pink flowers that put on a show in their own right. While sun tolerant, ‘Colorflash Lime’ is ideally suited to moist, well-drained soil in partial shade.

ZONE 5.

‘Delft Lace’ Astilbe has deep red stems that perfectly accent the blue-green, waxy foliage covered with a silver-lacey overlay, much like the foliage of the ever-popular selection ‘Visions’. But what makes ‘Delft Lace’ standout from ‘Visions’ is the softer, more delicately textured, yet still powerful bloom. These mighty blooms are strongly held high above the foliage on candy apple red stems. The buds emerge deep salmon-pink and open to a soft apricot-pink. This remarkable Astilbe brightens up any shady area with the enchanting foliage that just keeps growing and growing over the summer months. It does not handle drought well so be sure to provide adequate water throughout the hot summer months. #1 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

‘Deutschland’ Astilbe starts the spring with a mound of bronzy, deep green foliage. This deeply cut foliage provides great texture for any shady area, spring through fall, and provides a stunning backdrop for creamy white plumes that rise above the foliage and open in late June, attracting nectar-seeking hummingbirds and butterflies. ‘Deutschland’ thrives in moist, shady locations and is popular for border plantings or alongside water areas. Its magnificent blooms are superb for both fresh or dried flower arrangements while its dark foliage blends seamlessly with small to medium size gold-leafed hostas or ferns. Plant this deer, rabbit, slug and rodent resistant beauty in groups for maximum impact. In order to keep Astilbe looking good for the next year, do not cut it back in the winter (the old foliage helps protect the plant from winter damage), but prune in early spring. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Many people think there is no better red flowering Astilbe that ‘Fanal’ but we think that ‘Montgomery’ is far superior. Its deep red flower color in early June is richer and more vibrant that ‘Fanal’ but that’s only the start of what makes this plant stand out. Its foliage is incredible! It emerges from the ground bronzy red in the early spring and, even as it matures to a deep, lustrous green as the spring progresses, it retains an infusion of red color that makes it jump at you from the landscape and enhances its red flower color. It’s a perfect plant for partial shade and moist, well-drained soil and is a knockout when planted in groups.

Everyone knows Astilbes are the definitive perennials for the shade or woodland garden and this selection is one of the best at filling this niche with color and low maintenance beauty. It’s a sure thing, being deer and rabbit resistant, and butterflies love it for its soft, peachy-pink, airy plumes of bloom that rise above the rich fern-like foliage starting in late May or early June. ‘Peach Blossom’ is one of the most drought-tolerant selections of the genus and it will flower into early July for an extended show you'll look forward to every year. ‘Peach Blossom’ will tolerate morning sun but make sure it has enough shade so that it dependably lights up a darker area of your landscape. #1 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ZONE 4.

It’s rare to find an Astilbe that holds your interest when it’s not in bloom but ‘Pink Lightning’ does that with its dense form and outstanding foliage. That foliage is the first thing you will notice in the spring as it emerges from the ground, deeply cut and dark, shiny green with a bronze edge that adds to the luster. The foliage forms a compact, rounded mound that gives rise to flower buds that climb from the foliage in early June. These buds open in late June revealing purple-red flowers that change to a clear nearly luminescent pink as they mature. The flowers are long lasting and look even better held above that outstanding foliage. Plant this plant in groups in partially shaded areas for a show you will look forward to every year. 7.85

Fargesia dedudata has impressed many a gardener with its ability to withstand heat and keep the lush green color everyone loves about Bamboo. Unlike most Fargesia, denudata’s leaves are evergreen, giving it a strong winter landscape presence. The leaves are smaller and the branching is shorter than other Fargesia types giving it a delicate look and making it an excellent selection for a container or screen. Its canes reach 1/2" in diameter and have a graceful arch creating a stunning fountain of foliage. Plant denudata in rich moist soils with some afternoon shade to protect it from the hot afternoon sun, which can cause it to turn golden. One of the best uses for this bamboo is as a stand-alone specimen that forms a slowly expanding, non-invasive clump making a dramatic focal point in the landscape. #2 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

If you can pronounce it, then you sure deserve to be rewarded by the spectacular show of color in the intense red of the young culm shoots which fade to a soothing mellow yellow in this upright cultivar. One of the most cold hardy of Fargesias, ‘Jiuzhaigou’ will tolerate down to 25°F giving those in colder regions an opportunity to enjoy its color and its ability to create a stunning specimen or border planting that is clumping, not invasive. ‘Jiuzhaigou’ prefers a halfday of good sun to give those young shoots their brilliant red coloration and will thrive in moist, well-drained soil. #2 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Early shoots on this hardy species display exquisite orange-red culm sheaths surrounding the narrow, upright shoots that tend to fountain over slightly as they rise, creating a flowing landscape form that will be prized individually or in groups. This clumping mountain bamboo also makes the perfect evergreen screen with dark green foliage that will keep the landscape cool looking even in the heat of summer.

Stately and stunning are two words that accurately sum up this American Beauties native that is long lived and easy to grow. While a perennial that dies back to the ground each year, Baptisia looks like a shrub once it emerges from the soil with multiple, tall, upright, almost woody stems creating a big, beefy bush with deep green pea-like foliage. By mid-May, the top of each stem sports a string of buds that open by late month revealing deep, indigo blue, hooded, pea-like flowers that may stretch 6-8" high. The color is stunning against the foliage backdrop and the flowers are long lasting, staying in color well into June. Baptisia is easy to grow in any sunny, well-drained soil. It is drought tolerant and has an extensive root system which makes it difficult to move once established so find it a permanent home and enjoy the color! #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

A must for any shady garden, this selection is rapidly becoming a classic that is simply essential in the landscape. While ‘Jack Frost’ has outstanding flowers, its foliage is what really turns heads. Large, nearly round foliage grabs your eye immediately with their silvery-white color that is offset by deep green venation and leaf edges. The effect is like a searchlight in the darkness of a shaded area made even more impressive when you plant this in groupings for season long blocks of foliage color. And the bloom?? Subtle and outstanding with sprays of small, deep blue flowers in May and June that make a great contrast above the silvery-white foliage.

Bred at the University of Massachusetts and named after the longtime host of PBS’ Victory Garden, this plant is a fitting, memorable tribute to a man who put gardening on the map for so many people. Unlike many Boltonia that are big, bulky, and late blooming, ‘Jim Crockett’ has a garden friendly form that is dense and full and has an urge to bloom early and often throughout the season that makes it into a signature garden plant. Its multi-branched form is covered with deep green foliage that stays clean, pest free, and beautiful throughout the year even though, once it starts blooming in late May with wave after wave of lavender daisies with yellow centers, you’ll hardly notice the foliage. ‘Jim Crockett’ keeps blooming unabated into September creating a yearlong garden show. Plant it in full sun for best results and, even though it is beautiful as an individual, this is a plant that begs to be planted in groups to create spectacular results in any well-drained soil. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

‘White Cloud’ is unquestionably one of the best among the mint family, and will certainly change your conceptions about mints being wild and rangy! This calamint forms a tidy bush of fragrant, deep green foliage that is far from your typical aggressive mint. Airy, tiny bright white flowers shower the plant from June through frost, inviting a steady hum of pollen seeking insects from moths to butterflies. Use ‘White Cloud’ as a longer lived, better smelling substitute for Baby’s Breath as it laughs off foul weather and is virtually disease free, provided it is planted in welldrained soil and full sun. You’ll love it massed in the border or as a cut flower in your house. #2 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FPCAAW02

Shorter than the species, ‘Snowbank’ only reaches 4' in height, making it a colorful addition to the garden without adding any unwanted plant staking or maintenance. Its flood of pure white flowers gives this boltonia its name with bloom starting in August and continuing until after frost and nearly obscuring the plant’s grey-green, lance-like leaves with small, white, star-like flowers. Plants can be pinched as you would a mum in late spring to encourage an even more compact size and its low maintenance, pest free nature makes this tough perennial an excellent addition to the back of a perennial bed or a native garden. Plant in full sun for the best flower show and stem strength on this deer resistant, butterfly attracting fall beauty!

Perennials

Known for its late summer bloom of pale pink flowers with sunny, yellow centers, this large growing native is the perfect backdrop plant for other late summer bloomers. Lance shaped greyish-green leaves can reach up to 5" long and are held tightly along its branches, giving great contrast to other blooms in the garden including its own. Starting in August and continuing until a hard frost, small pink daisies cover this large sized perennial bringing the fall garden back into a needed season of full color, especially if planted with other large scale fall bloomers like Ironweed, Joe Pye Weed or Solidago. Boltonia is easy to grow with minimal maintenance, requiring only moist, well-drained soils and full sun along with some pinching in the spring and summer to assure fat, non-leggy plants. ‘Pink Beauty’ is deer resistant and is a butterfly magnet.

This modern bellflower hybrid perennial certainly does not look like your ‘normal’ Campanula! Large pink buds are shaped like Japanese lanterns that burst into pendulous blooms with long, slender, widely spaced, candy pink petals that resemble the legs of a pink octopus. Long blooming with flowers appearing in mid-June and continuing into mid-August, this sea creature of a bloom will warrant a closer inspection of your garden by your guests, as well as by local hummingbirds attracted by its color and nectar. As the flower matures, its pink tentacles spread wider and wider until the bloom is nearly flat. Numerous, long lasting flowers (up to 50 per branch) with a slight fragrance and this plant’s compact size make it a great addition to containers and its low, spreading form make it ideal for lining a walkway and mingling with other perennials. ‘Pink Octopus’ thrives in full sun to part shade and is tolerant of deer and all but the wettest soils. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

For the simple reason that there is nothing else like it in the world! It’s strongly vertical profile leaps out of the garden with huge, multihued, variegated foliage that changes from burgundy to red to pink with splashes of yellow, gold and deep green across its long oval form. Even the foliage is great to cut for vase arrangements and we haven’t even talked about its bloom! And bloom it does with brilliant orange flowers on stout stems above the foliage from June through September. The color combination sounds loud but it has an amazingly unique power to blend with the garden while standing out individually and making the rest of the garden look even better! Plant Tropicanna® in any half to full sun area... it looks great everywhere including near water features and in containers. 8" container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

This member of the Tropicanna family certainly is showy, just in a different way than its relatives. While Tropicanna® Gold and Tropicanna® show off brilliantly colored variegation, Tropicanna® Black exudes a deep, dark coolness in the garden with deep purple foliage that is nearly black in appearance. It’s incredible how the large canna foliage adds so much texture to the landscape and added together with this elegant color, the plant is a show stopper. This sultry, rich color also serves as a great foil for its big flowers, held aloft from the foliage on stout stems starting in June and continuing into September. This bloom nearly jumps out at you from the garden with a bright scarlet-orange color that looks even more brilliant backed by the deep colored foliage. Any sunny garden spot or mixed container will show off Tropicanna® Black and its great gift of color and texture very well. ®

It’s an amazing foliage show that will galvanize any sunny garden spot and draw immediate attention, and that’s without even talking about its superb bloom. Flower buds appear on long, sturdy stalks that rise above the foliage and open to searing orange colored, yellow edged flowers beginning in early June and continuing into September. Try Tropicanna® Gold in a container for a real conversation starter. Foliage will not color as well in partial sun or at temperatures consistently below 60 degrees F. ®

Bachelor’s Buttons have always been one of the most dependable growers in the garden but not really one of its most exciting plants. ‘Amethyst in Snow’ is about to change all of that with a bi-color flower that is revolutionary for this genus. Long, deep green leaves with a haze of silver emerge in spring to create a thick, spreading, very attractive mound in the garden. Big buds that almost look like pineapples emerge in June at the top of each leaf carrying stem, opening in late June to reveal pure white petals that look like feathered trumpets arranged around a royal purple flower center. The color is superb, especially backed by the deep green foliage and flowers continue to bloom into August. ‘Amethyst in Snow’ thrives in full sun or partial shade and, once established, is very drought resistant. #1 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

This tough clematis will face up to the coldest winter weather without flinching, making it one of the best clematis for exposed spots. Four petals, each an inch long, make up the dusky, pinkishred, nodding flowers that bloom in profusion starting in late April and continuing into May. The heavy bloom can nearly obscure the vine and it will add color to any trellis, fence or container garden at a time when larger flowered clematis are struggling to hit their stride. Later in the year, whiskery seed-heads decorate its stems adding another decorative landscape dimension. ‘Ruby’ is an excellent vine to interplant with small shrubs which can act as a vine support, but providing a strong trellis or fence will allow it to show its best. Pruning is not essential, however removing any dead or weak growth in early summer will encourage strong new growth. Apply mulch to the soil surface around ‘Ruby’ to keep its roots cool and happy.

This darker version of ‘Bee’s Jubilee’ has large flowers that can reach up to 8" across and it has the blooming power to produce more than just a few! Each beefy bloom is composed of deep rose-pink petals bearing a broad cherry bar and slightly ruffled edges. These large blooms are suitable as a cut flower and its attractive seed heads are a nice addition to a late spring or late summer bouquet because, like many of the large-flowered hybrids, this one blooms twice, first in May and June, and then again in September. ‘Dr. Ruppel’s’ compact yet aggressively growing vine makes it a great choice for large containers or to dress up a patio rail. No matter what, providing a trellis or some other strong support and mulching around its roots to keep them cool and happy will make ‘Dr. Ruppel’ perform like a champ!

‘Henryi’ HENRYI CLEMATIS Mature: 4-12't.

ZONE 4.

‘Henryi’ is a classic Clematis and a strong bloomer from early summer to early fall with a consistent display of huge, crisp, dazzling white flowers. Each bloom reaches a dramatic 6-7" in diameter with tiny purple anthers in the center adding a sprinkle of color contrast. The single star-shaped bloom is crisp and clean and creates quite an effect against the bright green foliage, while cascading over a wall or climbing up a fence or trellis. As an added bonus, in spring, new foliage starts out a deep bronze color before it turns green. Plant ‘Henryi’ in full sun to partial shade... it loves the bright light, but wants its roots to be cooled under a layer of mulch for it to grow its best. ‘Henryi’ is a class 2 Clematis for pruning.

Named for a title character in a George Elliot novel, ‘Daniel Deronda’ is a splendid clematis with wide 7-8" flowers and a distinct twist! Depending on the season, you may see fully double, semidouble, or single flowers! In spring, an established plant will show a mixture of all three bloom types with singles predominating in the fall, when it gives a repeat show with flowers that are incredibly showy, but smaller than those in spring. No matter when and what form the flower takes, it’s still breathtaking with brilliant deep bluish-purple color with plum highlights accented with golden anthers in the bloom center. The flowers become less intensely colored as they age but still stand out against deep green foliage. ‘Daniel Deronda’ produces the most attractive seed heads of any clematis, will thrive in full sun or partial shade and loves mulch at its base to cool its roots. Use a fence or strong trellis so this plant can show off its best! Class 2. 8" container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FPCLDD8"

simplex ‘Hillside Black Beauty’ HILLSIDE BLACK BEAUTY SNAKEROOT

Perennials

Mature: 6-7't. x 3-4'w.

An old, hard to find clematis selection, ‘Capitaine Thuilleaux’ was named by a French nurseryman in 1918 for one of his sons who lost his life in World War I. Rich pink petal centers are surrounded by lighter pink and these petals, in turn, surround dark stamens in the bloom center producing a showy, large, profuse bloom on this vigorous climbing perennial. Its slightly fragrant, 7-8" wide flowers burst into color in mid to late May and again in late summer if the vines are pruned lightly after the first wave of flowers. This clematis works beautifully in partial shade, dappled sunlight or full sun and will even work well in a large container on a deck. Apply mulch to the roots to keep its roots cool, the secret to growing great clematis in full sun, and be sure to provide a good trellis or fence for it to thrive and show magnificently.

‘Jackmanii’ JACKMANII CLEMATIS Mature: 8-10't.

Parisienne™ PARISIENNE™ CLEMATIS ZONE 4.

When most gardeners think of Clematis, ‘Jackmanii’ is what comes to mind, partly because it has been blooming in gardens for years and partly because of its classic deep purple flowers that cover this vigorous vine from June through fall. The 4-6" single flowers start out a velvet purple and slowly fade to violet. Introduced in 1858 by George Jackman and his son in England, ‘Jackmanii’ has been charming gardeners for the past 150 years because it is easy to grow and carefree once established. Plant ‘Jackmanii’ in any sunny location with a support structure like a wall, arbor, fence or trellis and make sure it has a good layer of cooling mulch around its roots for best growth. ‘Jackmanii’ should be pruned as Class 3 Clematis.

If you’re looking for some of that same “WOW” in your garden, rest assured that Josephine™ is easy to grow, giving you incredible double lilac colored flowers from mid-June through early-August. Even better, these flowers are big, up to 6" in diameter, yielding a show that is unforgettable and long lasting because even after the petals fall away, the center pom-pom of the bloom persists with a unique look that is far beyond what normal clematis delivers. Grow this in full sun and keep the roots cool with an ample supply of mulch for best performance.

‘Piilu’ (Little Duckling ) LITTLE DUCKLING® CLEMATIS NEW

Mature: 5-6't. x 24-36"w.

ZONE 3.

From Estonia, ‘Piilu’ (pronounced pie-loo) means Little Duckling. Although we are not sure how it resembles a little duckling, what we are sure of is that it will change how you think about clematis. ‘Piilu’ may be the heaviest blooming clematis known at this time. Many clematis bloom only near the top of the plant, leaving the bottom bare, but ‘Piilu’ blooms from top to bottom. Many clematis varieties have blooms that fade or shrink over time but ‘Piilu’s’ blooms do neither and there are always blossoms present because, unlike most clematis cultivars, ‘Piilu’ does not take a mid-summer break. Early spring flowers have a fully double row of lavender petals with a darker fuchsia center and reach up to 3" across while the later summer and fall flowers are single. Reaching only 4-6' at maturity, it’s the perfect vine to climb along a mailbox or to mix with your favorite rose or container planting. This vine does best in full sun to partial shade with moist, well-drained soil. Apply mulch around the root zone in summer to help keep the roots cool so the plant performs at its peak.

‘Rouge Cardinal’ is a blast of stunning flower color in a velvety crimson shade featuring a satin sheen to the petal surface that fades as the flower ages. The blooms measure about 4" across and have a rounded form with the tips of the petals arching backward gracefully. Brownish red anthers blend into the petals, adding to the vivid explosion of color. Dark green foliage makes a perfect backdrop for this French cultivar’s abundant blooms from midsummer, with repeat bloom extending into fall. Be sure to plant ‘Rouge Cardinal’ in full sun and mulch its roots heavily to keep them cool for best performance. Grow it along a sturdy fence or strong trellis to support it and show off its spectacular bloom. Make sure you prune the plant back to just a few inches from the ground in early spring as all of its flowers are produced on new growth.

‘Niobe’ NIOBE CLEMATIS ZONE 4.

There have been loads of Clematis developed since this plant has been available to gardeners, but none match its color and power. Like crushed velvet, the huge, 6-7" diameter midnight-red blooms of ‘Niobe’ glow with rich color, brilliantly offset by a slender, prominent ring of bright yellow anthers. This slow growing vine creeps up any structure or can be trained as a stunning groundcover. The dark green foliage fills in thickly and offers a great backdrop for the flowers as they bloom in early summer on old growth and again later on buds formed on the newer growth in the summer and, sometimes, into fall. ‘Niobe’ is easy to grow in full sun as long as you protect the roots from too much heat with an underplanting of shorter perennials or a thick mulch layer around the base.

A cross Between ‘The President’ and ‘Violet Charm’. ‘Danielle’, has the wonderful color of ‘The President’ and the excellent flower form of ‘Violet Charm’. Deep purple flowers can reach 6-8" across and have a reddish bar in each flower petal that makes the striking red tipped stamens stand out even more. This climbing beauty blooms once in late spring and then again in early fall. It is deer resistant and its large brilliant, fragrant flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Its compact size, at 6 to 8', makes it an excellent addition to a patio garden, a smaller space where a vine would look great or a container garden. ‘Danielle’ blooms best with her foliage in the sun and her roots in the cooler shade so plant a groundcover or mulch the base until the plant becomes established. While ‘Danielle’ is a compact grower, a trellis or some other support will allow it to show and grow at its best.

ZONE 3.

Everyone knows Clematis ‘Jackmanii’ with its huge purple-blue flowers. For many, it doesn’t seem like spring without its stunning bloom. If you love ‘Jackmanii’ then you will fall head over heels for this improved version. ‘Superba’ represents its name well by being more vigorous and producing even larger, richer, deep purple-blue flowers. The petals are broader than ‘Jackmanii’ and create a nearly square flower. These deep purple beauties cover the vine from late June until early autumn making a great decoration for trellises, fences, or tumbling along a rock wall. This vigorous vine will quickly cover its support and should be cut down to a few inches above the soil line each spring since it produces all of its flowers on the new growth each spring. Make sure you mulch around its roots to them cool and happy and use a strong trellis or fence for support for best performance.

Let’s face it, Clematis can be a tough plant to get established in the landscape at times, but ‘Blue Bird’ is guaranteed to be one of the easiest and one of the most rewarding. Canadian bred for toughness, it is an aggressive plant that is easy to be successful with and produces a flower show in April and May, before many other Clematis, making it stand out even more. In fact, even the flowers are uniquely different with 2" diameter size, semi-double form, deep purpleblue color and a drooping almost pendulous nature that is breathtaking. This is the Clematis of choice if you are struggling to get this genus into your landscape and one to cherish even if you have plenty of others due to its unique flower and early floriferousness.

The colorful foliage forms a tight, rounded mound that serves as the backdrop for a coating of branch tip buds in late May. Bright yellow, 1.5" diameter daisy-like flowers start blooming in early June and feature a deep red eye. ‘Tequila Sunrise’ will bloom strongly through mid-July and sporadically the rest of the summer while its colorful foliage is still a remarkable presence in the garden, that gets even more noticeable as the weather cools and the cream leaf margins turn a striking mahogany color. ‘Tequila Sunrise’ is easy to grow asking little except full sun and well drained soil.

‘Route 66’ is bound to be your new favorite Coreopsis and why not, considering its brilliant flowers that show off searing yellow color with a starkly contrasting, large ring of magenta. Even more interesting, the location and size of the red pigmentation ring varies, sometimes significantly, from flower to flower giving you a plant that offers you the anticipation of something new with every unfurling flower. ‘Route 66’ and its round, frilly mound of foliage comes alive with bloom in late June with flowers continuing into August... a light shearing at this point will rejuvenate its blooming power so you will enjoy flowers well into September. With the cooler weather the magenta ring pushes out much of the yellow and dominates the flower giving you yet another gloriously different show. Discovered in Pennsylvania in 2005, ‘Route 66’ has returned each year bigger and better in the Zone 5 garden, where it was found, so it’s plenty hardy and easy to grow when planted in full sun and well-drained soil. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

But, as summer arrives, the non-descript crocosmia suddenly becomes a garden focal point as stiff stems arise from the foliage, bearing buds that open to large, rich orange, lily shaped flowers showing brilliantly against the foliage it floats above. The blooms have an almost tropical feel and make an excellent cut flower, as well as making a dramatic impact on any garden or mixed container on a deck or patio. ‘Babylon’ thrives in full sun when planted in moist, well-drained soils but grows surprisingly well in partial shade, too. Apply heavy winter mulch in northern climates to keep it warm enough to survive the cold temperatures. Cut stems when half the flowers are open for the best cut flower results. 6.35

Think back to your childhood years... many may have had a paint spinner that took paint and swirled it into a variety of colorful patterns on paper or maybe even your mother’s favorite tablecloth! ‘Cambridge’ is a large flowering decorative dahlia that will remind you of the results of this creative painting technique. It possesses fully double, dinnerplate sized flowers with pale yellow to creamy white petals that look as if they have been spun with scarlet paint. It’s a unique look on a big, vigorous plant that is easy to grow and maintain and incredibly rewarding. You’ll be amazed at its continual production of huge flowers from June through September, making it the talk of your sunny garden, container planting or dining room table if you cut some bloom for inside your home. Some staking to support the stiff stems holding up these massive blooms is a must. 10" Terra Cotta pot. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FADCM10"

It’s hard to beat this plant’s outstanding foliage texture and long bloom season, yet this plant is hard to find and so few people use it. You can change that by planting this dense, mound forming beauty with deeply cut, blue-green foliage reminiscent of Bleeding Hearts in any partially sunny spot in your landscape. You’ll enjoy the foliage even more when showy, yellow flowers with short spurs begin to decorate the plant in big numbers starting in early June and continuing into September. The flower show is even better when you plant this selection in groups in soil that is very well-drained to prevent winter rotting.

Add texture and color to your garden with this dainty looking plant that will surprise you with how well it performs in the landscape. The texture comes from outstanding bluish-green, deeply cut leaves that will remind you of Bleeding Heart foliage. Its fluffy look adds a fine texture to any planting and makes you want to touch it every time you see it! This foliage will soon be obscured by flower color as ‘Blackberry Wine’ buds up early, producing bloom in midMay in the form of fragrant, tubular, wine colored flowers that keep on coming throughout the summer into August. The combination of foliage and bloom make this plant ideal for grouping in the front or middle of a garden in full sun or partial shade.

A real workhorse in the perennial border, ‘Zagreb’ will bloom from late June to late August adding color to the garden during the hottest part of the summer. Bright yellow daisy flowers with a darker yellow disk are tightly grouped above its needle-like green foliage. A compact plant that is more upright and less rounded than its more famous relative Coreopsis ‘Moonbeam’, ‘Zagreb’ is a great companion to mingle with other sun lovers since its thin foliage and constant color make it so easy to work with. Tolerant of heat, humidity and drought, plant ‘Zagreb’ in any sunny border with well drained soil. The bigger the group you plant, the more impressive the summer show! Be sure to give it a quick shearing as flowers fade in August to promote a colorful later September rebloom!

Purple Leaf Corydalis is a stunner of a groundcover that thrives in partial shade. Bronzy-purple fern-like foliage emerges early in the spring forming a tight, spreading clump. Hundreds of ultra-fragrant, tubular, purple-blue flowers start blooming in mid May and continue until the summer’s heat really fires up. Plants may go dormant in mid summer and can, depending on weather, reappear for another blast of color in the fall. ‘Purple Leaf’ is a great addition to a woodland garden since it loves rich moist soils and dislikes drought. It will slowly spread to form a colorful patch and looks great in rock walls, borders or garden beds and complements other shade perennials so well.

Deep, purplish-green foliage forms a big, round, bold bush that stands out even more when big buds open in June to reveal 3" diameter, candy pink, semi-double flowers with golden anthers that provide that dramatic double feature of color that you’ll love! As much as you’ll love the color, you’ll love the easy going nature of ‘Fascination’ even more. It is such an easy plant to grow, wanting only a sunny area and moist, well-drained soil to be happy and requiring none of the staking and support that many larger growing dahlias require to look their best.

Dinnerplate dahlias are always an exciting draw in the garden because it’s hard for anyone to resist the larger than life blooms, many reaching 9" across. ‘Mystery Day’ adds to the drama with a bi-color bloom consisting of perfectly sculpted flowers of deep maroon petals, each tipped with a snowy white frosting. These massive, fully double flowers are, of course, its most amazing feature but, ‘Mystery Day’ also is noteworthy because of its vigorous growth coupled with compact size for such a large flowering dahlia, only reaching 48" in height. This compact form allows for more garden stability and less support needed for each massive bloom. ‘Mystery Day’ blooms from mid-June until frost and will always have an ample supply of flowers for cutting as long as you plant it in a spot with full sun and moist, well-drained soil. 10" Terra Cotta pot. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ZONE 4.

Any digitalis can be breathtaking but ‘Camelot Lavender’ is part of a new generation of Digitalis that has so many garden advantages that it may make all other selections obsolete. The Camelot series features plants that display great uniformity in the garden with consistent, spectacular flowering in the first and second season in the garden, something that can be hit or miss in other selections. Deep green, heavily corrugated foliage emerges in the spring to form a basal mound from which a flower stalk rises starting in late May. Buds and open in June to reveal tubular, deep lavender individual flowers with speckled throats. What makes these flowers even more spectacular is that, unlike most other Digitalis, the flowers are held horizontal on the stalk making for spectacular viewing. You’ll love the show as will the local hummingbirds and it is a perfect plant for livening up a partial shade garden with show stopping color through the end of July.

Welcome early spring with a wave of colorful yellow daisies that will be sure to take the chill off those cool April mornings. ‘Leonardo’ wakes up early, forming a tight mound of deep green, somewhat fleshy, heart shaped foliage that is quickly topped by a myriad of fat flower buds. These buds open in mid to late April to completely cover the plant with those 1.5" diameter sunny daisies that will provide instant garden warmth. ‘Leonardo’ is a marked improvement over other Doronicum varieties because of its tight, dense form and its consistent, profuse bloom. Plant it in full sun to partial shade and in groups for a powerful show that will get you in the mood for spring in a hurry!

This coneflower has it all, starting with large 5-6" flowers that are made up of a double layer of lavender rose petals and a dark cone with a bit of yellow at the center. The color parade begins in July and continues into early September and the large blooms are perfect for cut flower use with their extra long stems and their great longevity in bouquets. The plant itself is a very sturdy, bushy plant with flower stems reaching above the foliage to 3 feet in height. It’s great grouped as a background plant in any garden and is drought tolerant once established in a sunny area. Even better, local butterflies, bees and birds will enjoy ‘Primadonna’ as much as you, and will add to the color of your garden just by their presence!

Each blossom is made up of pure white, reflexed petals reaching up to a massive 5" across with a yellow center.

PPAF Mature: 24-30"t. x 18-24"w. ZONE 4. There may be an explosion of wildly colored Echinacea out on the market today, but it will be hard not to be enthralled by ‘Tiki Torch’. Beefy, stocky plants produce amazingly colored, pumpkin-orange rays that slightly reflex while surrounding a big, bulbous, deep orange colored cone. ‘Tiki Torch’ is not a ‘one and done’ bloomer as it produces a steady stream of flowers from early July through September. As with many of the newer Coneflowers, ‘Tiki Torch’ is fragrant and very attractive to colorful garden critters. Be sure to plant it in a sunny, well-drained spot and group it with purple flowering Salvia for a show that will make you gasp with delight. 7.50

American Beauties Native Mature: 30-36"t. x 30-36"w. ZONE 5. This impressive shade lover is one of the most tolerant ferns you can grow while providing a subtle injection of color into an area that can need a little shaking up at times! Lacy, deep green fronds are held aloft by vibrant burgundy stems to create a bi-color fountain effect in the landscape that is outstanding and loaded with texture. ‘Lady in Red’ forms a sizeable clump as it matures and provides excellent cover to a number of native songbirds while providing nesting material from dried fronds. Plant it in groups in moist soils for best performance but ‘Lady in Red’ is one of the most tolerant ferns of slightly drier soils, too!

This species name venustum means handsome or charming and you will definitely be charmed by this woodland staple. This delicate fern forms a low, slow-spreading patch that gradually fills a space without being the least bit invasive. Sturdy black stems are a perfect contrast to the lacy, small, soft green leaves that line the fronds. The foliage is so beautiful, it is treasured for cut flower arrangements. Himalayan Maidenhair Fern makes a charming edging or groundcover plant and is subtly superb in containers or even as a houseplant. While this woodland wonder takes a year or two to settle in, it will thrive in a rich soil that stays evenly moist and loves dappled sunlight to full shade. Avoid dry areas or shady areas under water-robbing trees that will dry the soil too much for this fern’s liking.

This airy, delicate plant with lacy foliage and dainty reddish-brown stems thrives in deep shade and moist soil. Its fine texture complements less delicate ferns and hostas and is best used as a groundcover in woodland landscapes or rock gardens or as an appealing border planting in any moist, shaded garden. Maidenhair fern is a slower clumper so no need to worry about it growing out of scale with its neighbors. Its delicate fronds do not handle foot traffic well but certainly handle the shady woodland environment with ease, so use it as a great textured backdrop for other flowering shade lovers or in groups for a frilly mass that you’ll want to reach out and touch.

This soft, yellow-green fern is found in the woods all across the Northeast and is one of those perfect plants to transform your shaded backyard into a lush woodland. Creeping roots send up lush fronds in the spring that can reach up to 24" and 4" wide, creating a colony of green that carpets the woodland floor. The frond itself tapers at each end, distinguishing itself from the hay-scented fern and giving it an unusual look and texture that makes it unique. New York Fern makes a good companion for spring ephermals such as stylophorum diphyllum and trillium grandiflorum, covering the gaps they leave in the woodland garden when they disappear in the summer heat. New York Fern requires consistently moist soils and filtered light, but will thrive in shady places where other plants have failed miserably.

This solid, trouble free evergreen fern is a perfect plant for shade and semi-shade areas forming a dense clump with upright, finely cut, nearly lustrous fronds and deep green color. It’s a perfect plant for grouping in the landscape to give that soft, forest floor feeling and is very drought tolerant once established. It all sounds great, but why is this plant named ‘Brilliance’?? Even with all its great virtues, the time when this plant jumps into your consciousness is when its new growth emerges such a bright reddish-orange that you’ll think the plant is spontaneously combusting!

Native Mature: 2-3't. x 2-3'w. ZONE 3. Combining an aggressive growing nature and great looks, this native fern is a ‘must have’ plant for the shady areas of your landscape. Big, wide fronds rise out of the ground in the early spring, soon showing off their big, widely separated leaflets that almost give this fern the look of a plant from the pea family. While fronds usually rise a considerable 2-3' in height they can reach 5 or 6 feet in areas with constant moisture content, giving it a size and form that allows it to lord over the surrounding shade landscape. Royal fern is deciduous with fronds turning a gold to golden brown color before disappearing in the fall. Royal is an easy care winner for any tough shade landscape and will fill in these areas with grace, charm and efficiency.

There is much about this Blooms of Bressingham introduction that will make you want it for your garden. It all starts with the foliage. Fern-like leaves emerge in early spring highlighted with a shock of bright orange that changes to gold then settles into bright lime-green shade for the summer months and forms a pleasantly textured, spreading mound. Profuse deep violet-blue flowers hover just above the foliage from June to September providing dependable garden color and contrast that you’ll love. Great for borders or massing, plant ‘Blue Sunrise’ in part sun for the best long lasting garden show. 5.25

If you like the look of Geranium ‘Ballerina’ you will love ‘Laurence Flatman’, a plant that is just as easy to grow and bloom, but with a great flower color variation. Sporting darker bicolor pink petals with magenta veining starting in late May, its bloom is one of the most dramatic of any perennial Geranium. Its short, clumping form slowly crawls along the ground spreading just a few inches each year. The gray green foliage looks nice all summer and accents the flowers that bloom during the summer months until late July. Because of its slow spread and compact habit, ‘Laurence Flatman’ is a great edition to a rock or alpine garden. It also performs great in a half to full day sunny, well drained border or container. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FPGELF01

Gaillardia seem to be the ultimate garden tease, promising prolonged color and easy care survival, but delivering far less most times. ‘Mesa Yellow’ is here to change that reputation and has started in a big way by being awarded an All American Selection award for 2010. You’ll be as impressed as the All American judges were by this plant’s dwarf, dense form that keeps it solid and strong in the garden. Light green foliage flushes vigorously in the early spring and is the backdrop for buds that open up a full 3 weeks earlier than other Gaillardias in mid May with big, beefy, 3" diameter golden-yellow blooms. ‘Mesa Yellow’ will bloom profusely all summer and will be oblivious to hot sun, dry soil and drought that can stop most summer bloomers in their tracks. Plant ‘Mesa Yellow’ in a group for a wave of color and make sure it has great winter drainage so it will be back for a colorful encore next spring.

You won’t believe your eyes when you see this dense, mounding beauty in bloom starting in early June. Each big flower is a mixture of yellow, orange and burgundy and each petal ends in its own little floret producing an incredibly unique show. This plant is a long bloomer and extremely productive, setting a summer garden alight with color.

NEW

Glorious color throughout the season reigns supreme as this selection radiantly shows its color with deeply pinkish-red shaded foliage throughout the season topped by wands of bright pink flowers from early July through frost. Grouping these in the middle of any planting will assure an exciting landscape show that will have you wishing summer might last forever!

GENTIANA

Gasp with delight when you see the non-stop color show this dense, incredibly floriferous plant brings to your garden. Its medium green foliage will be completely obscured for long stretches as 4" diameter daisies with wide orange rays painted with yellow-fringed edges surrounding fat, orangey-brown cones begin to bloom in early June and continue throughout the summer. This outrageous bloom on dense compact plants nearly demands that you install it in large groups for a summer show that will define your garden.

Ouch! You’ll love this plant, but you won’t love trying to ask for it! Despite its name, you’ll be richly rewarded with an easy to grow plant that has a combination of colors in its blooms that will make it truly unique in your garden. Even without its unique blend of colors, this selection’s flower form would be striking with narrow, drumstick-like petals widely spaced around a bulbous central cone. Flowers bloom in early July with a burst of autumnal hues with each petal a blend of fall colors, including deep-tangerine, chocolatey purple, deep rosy-pink and milk chocolate. The center cone starts out a bright lemony yellow and ages to a dark chocolatey-red adding to the color magic. The color is incredible, but its garden performance will wow you, too... it thrives in hot sun and poor, droughty soils without missing a beat. Plant it in the back of any garden and watch for the flood of butterflies that will visit the plant with the unpronounceable name! #2 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

‘Emma’ is a very precocious bloomer! In fact, it is so anxious to get started that it has thrown its sweet pink buds above its deep green, leathery foliage by early December.

Part of the Gold Collection® of Hellebores developed in Europe, this Christmas Rose will brighten up any holiday season with its incredible vigor, its strong, upright growing form and its massive display of bloom. Green stems rise above the leathery, deep green, lustrous mound of foliage in late November, bearing buds that open in mid-December to show off large, pure white flowers that will match the purity of new fallen snow when blooming. While many Christmas Rose varieties seem to lack the strength of their Lenten Rose relatives, ‘Josef Lemper’ is a rock with boldness and vigor that will make you fall in love. This deer resistant selection will bloom right on into January in the landscape and will be one more thing to make your winter garden memorable. Plant this Hellebore in partial shade and extremely welldrained soil for best results.

Straight from Europe where they are fully attuned to Hellebores, this outstanding selection has been anticipated for months and is getting gardeners excited. There’s good reason to be excited… the floriferousness and color of its bloom will make ‘Rosemary’ one of your immediate favorites, too! Deep green, leathery, evergreen foliage forms a mound that serves as the backdrop for a multitude of flower stems that rise above it in early March. As late March approaches, buds open to big, single rosy-pink flowers with a contrasting yellow ring of stamens. Not only is the big bloom showy against the foliage, the amount of bloom will blow you away! ‘Rosemary’ will put on an amazing color show right through April and will have you anticipating early spring next year! Plant ‘Rosemary’ in partial shade in well-drained soil.

‘Bridget’ Spring Promise® Lenten Rose, along with her many sisters, is a breakthrough in Hellebore breeding. While many of the hellebores on the market have been great landscape plants, their flowering is variable and they have not been reliable bloomers from seed, especially their first year in production. ‘Bridget’ and the Spring Promise® series change all that with vegetatively produced plants that are consistent in size, flower color and flower power from season to season. ‘Bridget’ is a dense mounded plant with evergreen foliage that buds up in early March and blooms in the landscape from late March through early May. Big, pale pink flowers with a light green throat are held above the foliage and offer a cool pastel greeting to spring. Like all Hellebores, ‘Bridget’ loves partial shade and moist, well-drained soil. #1 Container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FPHELBB01

Perennials

Historically significant due to the fact that it was the first widely available white daylily, this white petalled, green throated flower still turns heads today! There is nothing subtle about these flowers despite their color! They are large, 6" across, fluted, ruffled, and diamond dusted to make the petals actually sparkle! ‘Ice Carnival’ flowers are pleasantly fragrant, a trait not found in most daylilies, and even rebloom making them even more desirable. Plant ‘Ice Carnival’ in colorful combinations with other sun loving perennials such as Coneflower and Bee Balm since, like all Hemerocallis, they grow in full sun or partial to full shade.

This Hemerocallis with the memorable name sports 2.5-3" magenta, tinged purple petals with a splash of green at its throat that will catch the eye of garden enthusiasts and landscapers alike. Unstoppable blooms start in early summer and continue long after most hemerocallis cultivars have stopped for the season, putting on a blooming show right until frost. Vigorous growing, ‘Stella in Purple’ will quickly reach its mature size in the landscape and will bloom heavily from its initial year in the ground. Deserving of a place in the sunny border or as a centerpiece in a larger container, this flower packed perennial will make an easy care garden statement that everyone can enjoy. ‘Stella in Purple’ is drought tolerant and devoid of insect and fungal problems, while it attracts butterflies and hummingbirds and is resistant to deer and rabbits.

ZONE 3.

There are so many Heucheras out there today, but this established selection with its shockingly deep purple-red, curly-edged foliage and dense, compact form is still one of the best you’ll find for your landscape. It’s a plant that flat out performs in the landscape with very little input from you, except choosing the right sunny to partially shaded spot with well-drained soils to plant it. Its best color is in full sun and it really impresses when planted in a group. Stalks bearing small, cream colored flowers rise above the foliage from May through July adding more color with the butterflies and hummingbirds that will visit for their nectar. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Flowers bloom from late spring and continue into mid summer and attract butterflies and hummingbirds with their deep red color. Even though ‘Ruby Bells’ tolerates shade, best flowering and growth results are achieved when grown in full sun. ‘Ruby Bells’ is a great selection for grouping in a rock garden or border planting and it is so easy to grow asking only for well drained soil and a little deadheading to keep it growing vigorously and blooming long!

This dense growing plant has some serious “WOW” factor in its foliage that will have you drawn to it like a moth to a porch light on a summer night. Who could blame you? Once you take a look at the small, round, scallop-edged foliage that looks as close to stained glass as you can get without going to church, mixing shimmering silver with deep purple venation, you’ll be hooked! The color is even more incredible as the foliage emerges in the spring with a distinct wash of purple color that fades as the leaves mature. Butterfly and hummingbird attracting, small white flowers rise above the foliage from late May through July to add to this plant’s impressive list of garden credentials. Grow it in full sun or partial shade and let the “WOW’s” begin! #1 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FPHEUSVS01

moscheutos ‘Luna Blush’ LUNA BLUSH ROSE MALLOW PP#15,054 Mature: 2-3't. x 24-30"w. ZONE 5. The Luna series represent a breakthrough in plant form for this genus with dense, well-branched plants having just as much flowering firepower as older, bulkier selections. ‘Luna Blush’ illustrates those advantages perfectly with a compact, somewhat upright form that branches without pruning and loads itself up with big flower buds in mid-July. These buds begin to open late in the month revealing big, 6-7" diameter flowers that are white with a central red eye and loads of pink blush as you approach the flower edges. Tight form produces a massive flower show that obscures the foliage through August and into September. Plant it in full sun and, once established, this plant will be nearly carefree. #2 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FPHIMLB02

moscheutos ‘Luna Pink Swirl’ LUNA PINK SWIRL HIBISCUS

Slightly shorter at maturity than many of the other large bloomers in this family, ‘Cranberry Crush’ is wider than tall, allowing you to place it a little more toward the front of your garden. The huge, 7-8 inch wide scarlet flowers it produces, jump out of the garden at you and it’s so profuse blooming and colorful, you might just ignore all plants growing in front of it! Breakthrough hybridizing produces flowers all along the stems rather than just at the top, like some other cultivars, allowing it to put on a show that will be exciting and powerful. The flowers start out as nearly black buds opening to a glossy, dark scarlet flower with heavily overlapping petals. The flowers start in late July and are still blooming well into September. Glossy green, maple-like leaves have a slight purple overtone and blend well with the spectacular bloom. Plant a group for an explosive flower show that will attract both hummingbirds and butterflies in droves!

Breathtaking and so easy to grow, ‘Luna Pink Swirl’ is a valued member of the Luna family producing the same dense, yet intense, tight, well branched plant that defines the Lunas, but with a flower color that makes it an absolute must-have! Big buds appear in abundance on this late breaking plant by early to mid-July with huge 8" diameter flowers unfurling by late July, revealing white flowers that are stroked with pink, rose, and red feathers, giving an appearance that is unique in any Hibiscus. ‘Luna Pink Swirl’ will keep you hopping with so much bloom into early September that you’ll wonder if there is actually a plant under all the flowers! It’s an easy care plant that wants just full sun and well-drained soil to thrive!

Be prepared to be completely bowled over by this unparalleled summer flower factory! Mammoth 8", shocking, deep pink blooms obliterate the foliage from July through early September, but that is only the start of what makes this plant such a landscape winner. Like all the Luna Hibiscus, it’s the outstanding, carefree plant form that makes ‘Luna Rose’ such a great plant with those incredible blossoms being borne on a compact, well-branched, sturdy plant that actually fits into the rest of the landscape instead of overpowering it. A real hummingbird magnet, ‘Luna Rose’ in bloom looks like it’s on the juice and it will help define your summer landscape.

Large, dusty blue colored, oval-shaped leaves form a pleasing upright vase of bouquet foliage that gives rise to tall flower spikes that open up with pale lavender bloom in late July.

‘Summer Storm’ Hibiscus will take your garden by storm with its large 8-inch, clear pink flowers that burst into bloom in late July. To add to the color storm, each petal on each bloom is decorated with deep rose veins and an even deeper magenta eye that radiates out onto the petals. This hibiscus also features the ability to bloom much longer and stronger due to the fact that it has indeterminate buds and produces flowers at every node along the stem as well as at the tips. Even with all that flower color, ‘Summer Storm’ adds even more color as its nearly black foliage makes a dramatic contrast with the pink flowers. This foliage is darker than ‘Kopper King’ and it will make every flower on the plant pop with color! ‘Summer Storm’, like most purple foliage plants, requires direct sunlight to develop the deep purple coloring, so plant this selection in direct full sun for the best foliage coloring and best bloom power. Like all hibiscus, ‘Summer Storm’ will tolerate wet soils and is deer resistant.

An award winning and fun Hosta, ‘Blue Mouse Ears’ adds a bit of whimsy to any shade garden. Its cute, heart shaped leaves rarely reach over 3 inches long and each clump makes a perfectly symmetrical mound of extremely thick, almost rubbery blue leaves, each one having a sliver of white around the edge. Spikes of lavender blooms pop up on long stems held above the foliage in late July. The stature and excellent garden performance of ‘Blue Mouse Ears’ makes it a wonderful addition for mixed containers, rock gardens, and really any area in partial to full shade where colorful foliage and great dependability are needed. ‘Blue Mouse Ears’ is one of the most popular Hostas for grouping at the front of shade gardens and is one of the most slug resistant varieties available.

The maple-like foliage of this plant emerges bronze and transitions to a deep dark green but, while very nice, it is not the feature of this plant that will make you love it. What will really make you do a double take is the enormous ruby-pink blooms that appear on this large growing perennial in mid-summer. At a whopping 9-11 inches across, these babies are huge with heavily overlapping petals and are produced in bunches at the top of every reddish purple colored stem, obscuring the plant from late July until frost. This is a beefy plant and can take up some room, so plant it near the back of a perennial border or singly as a focal point. These luscious blooms attract butterflies and hummingbirds while your local deer will leave them alone. Plant ‘Sultry Kiss’ in full sun in average to moist soils for a show that you won’t soon forget.

‘Night Before Christmas’ NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS HOSTA Mature: 18-20"t. x 24-30"w.

Mature: 15-18"t. x 24-30"w.

There’s a lot to love about this variegated sport of ‘Halcyon’, from its dense, tight, flattened, globe-like from in the garden to its multi-faceted variegation. ‘June’ is colorful from the get-go as it emerges in the spring with leaves that unfold blue-edged with a bright creamy-white center. As the leaves age, this garden chameleon changes its shade as the center variegation morphs to a pleasing dark, yet electric chartreuse. Flower scapes rise a full 20" above the foliage to reveal lavender flowers in late July. This is a very easy Hosta to grow, looks great in groups, and will deliver the best coloration with morning sun and afternoon shade.

‘Lion King’ is a breathtaking Japanese Iris with extremely large, fully doubled white petals with a wide flurry of purple on the edges. The huge flowers with their picotee edging nearly obscure a hidden splash of golden yellow on the signal, deep in the center of the bloom. Flowering in mid June and into early July, this easy to grow plant will thrive in full sun, looking absolutely regal in the middle or toward the back of a garden. ‘Lion King’ will look spectacular in a group, especially near a pond or stream bank where you can see the beautiful reflection of its bloom in the water. And don’t worry about ‘Lion King’ not liking the wet condition in this location... it grows happily in wet areas without missing a beat.

From a distance this spreading beauty looks almost pure white, a color that will definitely get your attention, especially in a shady spot. As you come closer to take a look you’ll see that it is actually a series of variegated silvery-white leaves with green margins grouped tightly along trailing stems. ‘White Nancy’ forms a perfectly beautiful groundcover that spreads by stolons and is aggressive while not being invasive. It’s one of the easiest, most rewarding, long season color plants for partial to full shade you can grow and even has a pleasing, mint-like, pure white bloom that first appears in late May and early June. It tolerates virtually any well-drained soil and will take a shearing if you feel it is misshapen or growing too aggressively, and come back even stronger and more beautiful than before. ‘White Nancy’ is extremely hardy and deer resistant so feel free to plant it in large groups or even in mixed containers for a shady patio or deck that could use its great color and great vigor.

The lavender world just got a little easier with this stunning new seed selection of lavender that you’ll embrace for its unifomity, ease of growth, earliness of bloom and incredible blooming power. Deliciously fragrant, grey-green, needle-like foliage is tightly packed on a multitude of upright stems creating a dense, rounded plant that is almost formal in appearance. Each stem end extends with buds that swell as we approach June and begin to open in mid-June to reveal narrow spikes of deep purple-blue flowers that are larger, more concentrated on the flower stem, and deeper colored than almost any lavender you’ve seen. It’s a masterpiece of color contrast against its foliage and it keeps on blooming right into early September. Plant ‘Ellagance Purple’ in full sun and make sure it is planted in an extremely well drained, almost gravelly soil spot to prevent overwintering damage. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

‘Ellegance Sky’ is a part of the award winning Ellegance Family of lavender that has helped make growing this sometimes difficult crop in the landscape far more rewarding. The reason, more uniform plants, more bloom and far earlier bloom in the life of the plant. You’ll love how full and dense ‘Ellagance Sky’ is with nary a richly fragrant, grey-green leaf out of place as they line the numerous upright stems that make up the plant. Spikes form at the top of each stem to hold flower buds that begin to open in mid June with showy, light lavender blue flowers that continue to grow and show right on into September. This lavender will perform the way other varieties only promise as long as it is planted in full sun in an extremely well drained, almost gravelly location. Used formally or informally in this setting, ‘Ellagance Sky’ will reward you handsomely! #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FPLVES01

There just has not been a white flowering lavender you could count on until now. Another member of the Ellagance Family of seed lavenders, ‘Ellagance Ice’ will be a handsome addition to the garden and a perfect contrast plant to its Ellagance relatives, ‘Ellagance Purple’ and ‘Ellagance Sky’. Boasting the same grey-green fragrant foliage and almost clonal dense, tight, rounded form, this selection will cap itself with spikes of icy white flowers beginning in mid June and continuing right on through the summer. Like its relatives, ‘Ellagance Ice’ is far more dependable, uniform, early to bloom and longer blooming than any other lavender you’ll find, and it will perform like a dream in any sunny informal or formal garden as long as you provide it with exceptionally well drained, gravelly soil.

‘Snowcap’ is an especially compact selection that we have found to be the best dense selection available to the homeowner, with masses of single, intensely pure white daisy flowers, each with a yellow center. These long lasting flowers are produced in abundance and are excellent for cutting when in bloom from mid to late June all the way into mid August. Removing faded flowers will greatly increase the blooming time. Dark green foliage grows on nicely rounded, tidy clumps. Due to its compact nature, ‘Snowcap’ tolerates wind and rain in the garden better than other Shasta Daisies meaning less breakage and disappointment, and far less maintenance making it an easy care landscape dream! #1 container size . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Tiny Series TINY SERIES DWARF ASIATIC LILIES ZONE 4.

An American native best planted in drifts, Liatris ‘Kobold Original’ is a free spirit in the border, in the meadow or in the wild. With striking vertical lines, Blazing Stars add lift to the garden as stiff upright stems rise from a tuft of dark green, grassy leaves starting in July. The magentapurple straplike petals of the many small blooms along the stiff flower stem create a unique bottle brush look that is outstanding and a magnet for bees and butterflies in search of nectar. Drought tolerance along with a compact habit makes it a great choice for containers or grouped in the middle of the garden. This Prides Corner Farms selection comes from divisions rather than a seed source, making ‘Kobold Original’ consistently shorter and more compact then the seed strain of Liatris ‘Kobold’. #2 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Big, colorful foliage and showy summer bloom create a winning combination for this plant in any sunny or partially shaded garden. You’ll find it hard to take your eyes off this plant’s foliage as it emerges a stunning chocolate-maroon color with deep purple on its back and unfurls up to 6" in diameter to form a rounded, full size mound that, alone, would be a striking addition to any landscape, but the color has just begun! In August see the arrival of thick sturdy flower stalks that rise from the foliage and extend above to reveal brilliant yellow-orange daisy-like flowers that, offset by its remarkable foliage, will make this plant the center of attention without a doubt. ‘Britt Marie Crawford’ will thrive in full sun with ample, constant moisture but would prefer a partially shaded spot if the moisture level is lower. #2 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Mass them in an area where their pastel bloom will shine and don’t think because their bloom is so refined looking that this plant is a garden wimp! These Oriental Lilies are very hardy and will spread and produce more color each year if planted in full sun and in welldrained soil.

Unlike ‘Desdemona,’ ‘The Rocket’ is grown for its spires of bright yellow flowers. Yet the large 8-10" leaves will create a beautiful mound 3-4' tall and round, a real eye-catcher. July-August.

NEW

All the beauty of standard Lilies but in an easy to manage dwarf size, these compact color bombs will thrill you with their spectacular blooms and easy care nature. Reaching a height of 22" at the peak of their bloom, each sturdy stem carries bright, full sized flowers in a rainbow of colors and in such quantity, they can obscure the plant when fully open. Their small size make these lilies one of the most multi-purpose plants in the garden. They’ll thrive in any sunny, well-drained garden location and will offer an immense wave of color starting in mid to late June when planted en masse. The Tiny Series will add an amazingly colorful dimension to a mixed container on a deck, patio or even in window boxes. Butterflies and hummingbirds will be happy to come by for some nectar while adding to the garden color show. Be sure to cut a bloom or two for inside, too!

Brilliant gold and cream-variegated foliage really brightens up a dark corner. Lavender flowers. August.

Blue bloomers always stand out in the garden and ‘Fan Blue’ is no exception as it produces numerous dense spikes of intense blue-violet, birdlike blossoms on compact, strictly upright plants. The blooms begin with a dark indigo in the throat, and then “fan” out into a lighter purplish-blue and feature an earlier bloom time than the species, beginning in July and continuing into fall. ‘Fan Blue’, like all Lobelia, will thrive in moist soils and around water features, but will perform beautifully when planted in borders or even containers. Its flowers attract a wide array of hummingbirds, moths and butterflies and may be used very effectively as a cut flower. ‘Fan Blue’ does well in sun or part shade and is stunning in groups. #2 container size . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Mature: 24-48"t. x 18-24"w.

ZONE 5.

The first thing you will notice about this perennial is its profusion of blooms that cover the plant from its head to its foot. 2 to 3" diameter lavender-pink flowers with raspberry-purple veins fade to white with the same raspberry-purple veining, creating a multi-colored pinwheel effect that is simply riveting in the garden. Blooms begin to fill the plant in late June and continue until frost, giving you mountains of flowers to keep your summer garden lively. They are excellent for cutting to put on a show inside, too. ‘Zebrina’ has a more compact stature of only 4' which means it is less prone to blow downs and breakage associated with taller hollyhocks and it’s a prolific self-seeder, meaning you will have plants to enjoy in abundance each year. Stiffly branched and tough as nails, this perennial is excellent in full sun and in all well-drained soils. Deer resistant. #1 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FPAHZ01

This robust grower is known for its billowing, violet-blue flowers that arch over fuzzy, graygreen foliage, its rounded spreading form and its ability to perform in some of the more challenging spots in the landscape. This tough, long-lived, reliable bloomer loads up with buds in late spring and explodes into color in late May and early June with flowers climbing the ends of each stem. An excellent choice for those hot and dry spots in the landscape or the herb garden, ‘Six Hills Giant’ is a survivor that takes on drought, hot sun and poor soils and keeps on performing. Plant it in groups for a great show in early summer, and cut some of its grayish foliage for its minty scent and marvel at how well it grows with so little input from you. For added bloom, cut ‘Six Hill Giant’ back by 2/3 after its initial bloom to promote another round of fragrant blue flowers.

Powdery mildew problems in this genus are well documented but ‘Raspberry Wine’ consistently comes out on top of ratings with extreme mildew resistance. That should be a huge bonus for a plant that already has so much going for it, including sturdy stems, deep green foliage, a robust nature, and an insatiable desire to bloom. In fact, the supply of pure wine-red flowers seems inexhaustible in July and August providing great color and a great source of nectar for local butterflies and hummingbirds. Plant ‘Raspberry Wine’ in a location with good airflow and in sun or partial shade for best results.

‘Blue Wonder’ is a fragrant, low, soft green/grey silvery foliaged selection that forms a spreading mound that will be smothered with larger than usual lavender-blue blossoms in summer, from May to July. Shearing off the spent flowers will promote rebloom on this tough, tolerant, deer resistant, drought resistant selection. Its shorter stature makes it suitable for the front of the border, for use as a groundcover and makes it perfect for underplanting large shrubs. ‘Blue Wonder’ is a great plant that you’ll love almost as much as your cats, that crave its scented foliage, and your local moths and butterflies that flock to it for its nectar.

A brilliant, semi-double flowered Peony with crimson petals, ‘Karl Rosenfield’ makes just the kind of old school statement that has made gardeners love Peonies for generations. ‘Karl Rosenfield’ just turned 100 years old and is still a hot variety that continues to enjoy unprecedented popularity. And why not with its signature late May to late June bloom atop strong stems and its classic colored petals surrounding a golden bomb of stamens? ‘Karl Rosenfield’ is one of the lowest maintenance perennials around... just plant in full sun and you are promised years and years of large, delightful flowers that butterflies adore and deer don’t have a taste for. All Peonies love moist, well drained soil and transplant poorly once established in a location.

Try this out for something different. Huge Peony blooms that are up to 8" in diameter, somewhere between a single and a double flower and are deep rose with a mixture of white and a hint of yellow at flower center. If this sounds intriguing, then you need ‘Bowl of Beauty’ in your garden! Huge buds top deep green foliage and open in early June to reveal this unique bloom that shows a backing row of deep rose petals surrounding cushions of white, turning pale yellow, frilly stamenoids that fill the center of the bloom and give this its totally unique look. The blooms are fragrant and perfect for cutting and the plant is a great, easy care plant that will easily become a garden favorite.

Be awed by the bloom of this award winning peony that features a massive show of highly double pink flowers in late May and early June that are made even more enjoyable by their garden filling fragrance. The light pink flowers look soft enough to sleep on with many petals, but the droves of butterflies attracted by each bloom are too busy finding a nectar snack to take advantage of the pillowtop bloom! Each bloom sits atop a stout stem that displays remarkable strength, but it’s still recommended that you stake your plant to keep your blooms looking their best. Deer avoid ‘Pillow Talk’ and it will thrive in full sun and moist, well-drained soil. Make sure you pick your spot well because peonies hate to be moved once established. Don’t forget to cut some blooms for in the house... it’s a great cut flower!

While all peonies tend to be showy, ‘Kansas’ takes showiness to a new level! This peony is a robust, larger growing plant with multiple tightly grouped stems, each of which is topped by a big, round, fat flower bud by mid-May. Bud opening in late May unfurls an incredible array of bright watermelon colored petals that are packed together to form one of the biggest double flowers you’ll ever see in the garden. Lightly fragrant, these flowers will dazzle you and will make an awfully tempting cut flower. Plant ‘Kansas’ in full sun or partial shade in moist, welldrained soil and provide plant support so those huge blooms won’t flop when open.

Big, beefy, fragrant, fully double luminous pink flowers that darken to magenta at the flower center open in late May and continue into early June, filling the garden with color and a seductive scent. ‘Jacorma’ makes a wonderful fragrant cut flower and is easy to grow, wanting only full sun or light, partial shade and moist, well-drained soil. Plant it in the middle of a garden and make it a permanent garden fixture since it will not tolerate moving well once established and be sure to provide some support for its huge flowers even though it is known for having some of the beefiest of Peony stems.

A true garden classic, ‘Festiva Maxima’ is a dependable, very showy variety that still deserves a place of honor in the landscape. Individual stems break from the soil surface in a tight knit group revealing dark green, clean, deeply cut foliage. As the stems reach mature height in May, a big, round bud forms at the top of each stem, opening in late May with big white double flowers with a scattering of red flecks. Flowers are extremely fragrant, filling the garden with their scent and making them an outstanding cut flower. Plant ‘Festiva Maxima’ in full sun or part shade in moist, well-drained soil and provide plant support to keep its big, fluffy flowers from toppling when open.

Delightful fragrance and long, sturdy stems make ‘Red Magic’ a great cut flower to bring inside and enjoy, too! Plant ‘Red Magic’ in a sunny location with moist, well drained soil toward the middle or back of the planting area and enjoy the show for years to come. #2 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

lactiflora ‘Sarah Bernhardt’ SARAH BERNHARDT PEONY Mature: 30-36"t. x 18-24"w.

ZONE 3.

Captivating scent and huge flowers will have you screaming for more the first time you see this selection in bloom. ‘Sarah Bernhardt’ is tall growing with tightly grouped stems that each carry a big, round bulky bud by mid-May. Buds open in late May to huge, very double rose-pink flowers that are as fragrant as they are showy. Flowers are perfect for cutting to bring that incredible aroma inside and its deeply dissected foliage remains clean and deep green throughout the season. Place it in full sun or partial shade in moist, well-drained soil and be sure to provide support to the plant to keep those mammoth flowers upright and looking their best. #3 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

suffruticosa TREE PEONIES There is nothing in the garden that compares to a Tree Peony’s ability to take your breath away! Grafted on stout woody stems and decked out with light to medium green dissected foliage, these plants will top themselves with huge buds in early May that open, revealing massive 5 to 6" diameter semi-double flowers later in the month. The color and flower forms are breathtaking and each plant’s flower power increases as the years go by as they slowly grow to form a substantial dense, compact bush. Tree Peonies love full sun and well drained soil and will look great as a single superb specimen or grouped to form a swath of mid spring gardening heaven in the landscape!

Shorter in stature then most Iceland poppies, ‘Garden Gnome’ boasts sturdy, hairy stems to keep the brilliant blooms of scarlet, yellow or orange upright in the spring rain showers. The tissue paper thin petals surround a brilliant yellow ring of stamens that together brighten the spring garden like no other early bloomer can! The 2" flowers start to bloom in late April and continue through to frost, blending well with other perennials and annuals in the garden. Dead head spent flowers to keep this Poppy tidy. Plant ‘Garden Gnome’ in full sun to partial shade and give it a moderate amount of water to keep the blue green foliage fresh.

While most Oriental Poppies have towering size to go along with breathtaking bloom, ‘Little Candyfloss’ grabs the spotlight because of its dwarf, compact plant size that makes its spectacular flowers even more noticeable. At 14" tall, ‘Little Candyfloss’ is less than half the size of the Oriental Poppies you have come to love, but its flowers are still the same big, fluffy, showy blooms as the full sized poppies. Each flower is a combination of large, pink, crinkly petals with large basal spots colored deep maroon, surrounding an even darker flower center completing a big, beefy bloom that belies the short stature of the plant. Even better, ‘Little Candyfloss’ shows more bloom power than its taller relatives, giving you a power-packed show of huge blooms in late May and early June. ‘Little Candyfloss’ is easy to grow, wanting half to full day sun and moist, well-drained soil. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

With its towering flower stalks, it’s best to plant ‘Queen Alexander’ in the middle of the garden where it can really put on a show without overwhelming the garden front. ‘Queen Alexander’ loves full sun, well drained soils and a companion planting of other later blooming perennials that can fill in the spot they vacate as they go dormant in the heat of the summer. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Get ready for a full summer of bloom on this dwarf powerhouse of a plant that is half the height of its well known relative, but packs just as much, if not more flowering firepower! Stiff, upright stems with gray-green, small, aromatic foliage form a dense, upright bush that tops itself with long spikes of buds at the top of each of its myriad of stems. Cool, blue-lavender blooms begin to open in late June or early July and combine with its grayish foliage to produce a color show that is spectacular in its ability to complement other garden bloomers and in its bloom length that continues into September. Plant this in big drifts in a sunny, well-drained spot for a breathtaking statement. ‘Little Spire’ is drought resistant and deer resistant making it an even better garden choice.

It bombards you with big cones of bloom made up of striking individual flowers held above deep green foliage on thick stems starting in July and continuing into September. While all Garden Phlox can have run-ins with Powdery Mildew, ‘Peppermint Twist’ displays excellent resistance especially when planted in full sun in locations with good airflow. ‘Peppermint Twist’ is compact so it needs little staking and is very showy in groups or in a container. It even has a sweet flower scent that adds to its value as a cut flower. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

‘Volcano Ruby’ is the latest addition to this popular series of mildew-resistant Garden Phlox that debuted in 2004. This great new color blooms with plum-red flowers that have an electric effect on the garden… the color has to be seen to be believed! This Volcano, like all previous varieties, offers the same great compact growth habit, fragrance, long bloom and extreme tolerance for the powdery mildew that plagues most phlox. Because it’s lower growing and compact, it won’t flop when in bloom or after it rains, meaning it is a low maintenance star. Plant ‘Volcano Ruby’ in full sun to partial shade in fairly fertile, moist, well-drained soil, then stand back and enjoy the show.

It has gorgeous true pink flowers that bloom during May and June and wanders the forest floor by way of rooting at the nodes. Give it moist, humus-enriched soil in part shade and this plant will be happy.

Sometimes a plant’s flower buds can be as interesting as the flower itself. This is the case with ‘Astra Pink’ as bulbous, balloon-like buds adorn the plant in June, giving it a different, appealing look that changes again when the buds burst open into beautiful light pink, bell-shaped flowers in early July. Not only are the flowers long lasting and strongly blooming deep into August, but exceptional branching and compact, uniform habit makes ‘Astra Pink’ a nice selection for cut flowers, containers, or the garden. Like all Platycodens, it’s slower to emerge in spring, but is worth waiting for. It’s an easy, trouble-free perennial that will easily adapt to full sun or part shade and looks great grouped together in the front of any perennial garden. #1 container size . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Brighten up any shade garden with this early blooming perennial that is as renown for its foliage as its bloom. Leaves emerge from the ground as the weather warms in late March, forming a mound of long, narrow, deep green, spade-shaped foliage offset by an array of white spots that make the leaves look like they have just emerged from a passing paint shower! The foliage serves as the backdrop for stems of small, deep blue to pink, bell shaped flowers that rise above the mound in late April and continue through May. ‘E.B. Anderson’ is one of those indispensible plants for a shade garden that thrives where other plants falter... it looks fantastic in groups at the front of any garden and will give you months of foliage viewing pleasure. While many lungworts are powdery mildew prone, ‘E.B. Anderson’ is one of the most resistant, giving you even more reason enjoy them! #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FPPULEB01

A great dwarf Black-eyed Susan that still performs like its taller cousin, ‘Viette’s Little Suzy’ is a prolific producer of large, daisy flowers featuring deep yellow rays and a darker purplish-brown disk in the center. This little powerhouse blooms from July into September and its compact habit, along with its gorgeous flowers, makes for a dramatic effect mixed with other perennials or massed in a bold drift. In the fall its medium green foliage turns a beautiful mahogany. ‘Viette’s Little Suzy’ looks wonderful decorating the fronts of sunny borders or containers or can be used as a stunning groundcover. It grows best in full sun, but can handle some light shade and is a great cut flower for inside the house, too!

Dependable and colorful, ‘Blue Hill’ is the type of perennial that requires very little effort to grow yet delivers incredible garden results. Emerging in the early spring with deep green, narrow foliage, ‘Blue Hill’ becomes a dense, multiple stemmed mound in no time. As May progresses, each stem is topped by buds that elongate into a 3 to 4" stems that rise above the foliage and open to reveal masses of pure blue flowers by early June. Since there are so many stems the amount of closely packed flower spike makes for an incredible show of bloom that continues well into the summer. With its dense, compact from, ‘Blue Hill’ is perfect for grouping in the middle of the garden and, as long as you plant it in a sunny spot with well-drained soil, you can stand back and admire the show without a thought of any extra work. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

‘Butterfly Blue’ has always been the standard bearer for Scabiosa in the garden, but it’s time for this old standby to move aside... there’s a new scabiosa in town that will give your garden the jolt of excitement that you had always hoped ‘Butterfly Blue’ would. ‘Blue Note’ is noticeably different because its form is denser, tighter and fuller, while its blue flowers are noticeably darker and far less ‘washed out’ looking that ‘Butterfly Blue’. The result?? A dense, mound of a plant that covers itself with beautiful blue pincushion flowers beginning in May continuing into early summer. Lost in all the blooming fury will be this plant’s fine textured, grey-green foliage and the fact that this plant performs like a blooming fool without asking anything from you, but half to full day sun, well-drained soil (a must for winter garden survival!) and a willingness to enjoy the show! #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

spurium ‘John Creech’ JOHN CREECH STONECROP Jeepers Creepers®

ZONE 3.

Superb red color – darker then any other Sedum, ‘Munstead Dark Red’ gives the autumn garden a kick of color. Highly drought resistant, this clump forming perennial has deep green foliage with just a hint of blue. Butterflies flock to this easy to grow, late summer bloomer with its flattened heads of deep pink-red blooms that open in mid-August. Thriving in poor soils and full sun, this showy autumn bloomer adds color in the fall as well as in the winter, as the dried seed heads are very attractive, covered with a cap of fresh fallen snow. The dried blossoms also make long lasting cut or dried flowers and are used by many songbirds for nesting. Plant ‘Munstead Dark Red’ in a group in the middle or front of the garden for an easy care bloomin’ show.

Tradescantia was one of the first North American natives to be successfully brought to Europe and introduced to European gardeners in 1629. ‘Marielle’ enlivens this great American native genus with its long bloom, large, blue petalled flowers and clean green foliage that forms a dense, spreading mound. Its distinctive three petaled flowers are held in clusters, nestled just above the foliage and open progressively over several weeks starting in May. Flowers stay open only one day, but the seemingly unending progression of new blooms keeps it constantly in color for you and the native insects and butterflies that prize its nectar. ‘Marielle’ thrives in moist conditions and part to full day sun, making it one of the best plants for a Rain Garden. It tolerates aggressive pruning once it is past bloom to rejuvenate it and keep it from being floppy or leggy in the garden. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Veronica is one of those easy care perennials that can be easy to overlook in the garden, except during its fairly narrow bloom time, starting in late spring. ‘First Love’ is a hard working selection that is just as easy to grow, but possesses a much longer bloom period making it go from forgotten to fantastic in your landscape. ‘First Love’ continues to send up its spikes of clear, deep pink blossoms for weeks after most veronicas have packed it in, keeping it the focus of viewing activity for you and all the butterflies and hummingbirds that come calling. This low mound of summer color is perfect for grouping at the front of a border so all can enjoy its long show or mixed with other long bloomers in container plantings. Grow ‘First Love’ in full sun or partial shade.

ZONE 5.

This dense, compact plant takes up very little garden space but makes up for it with enough flower power to make it seem three times its size. Deep green foliage densely fills out short, upright stems forming a rounded, spreading clump in the garden that tops itself with flower spikes in June. These flower spikes extend 3 to 4" above the foliage and reveal profuse numbers of small, deep blue flowers that continue to bloom into August. ‘Royal Candles’ is a cinch to grow requiring full sun and well-drained soil and a little deadheading of past blooms to prolong the flower period. It’s a great plant to group in numbers toward the front of a planting to put on a huge, deep blue summer show. #1 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

‘Ralph Shugert’ is an expert at making the common look uncommon. Everyone knows that Vinca is a tough, great looking groundcover that is somewhat overused, somewhat commonplace and, most times, overlooked except when it is in bloom. It’s very hard to overlook ‘Ralph Shugert’. Its outstanding variegated foliage with a thin yet distinct band of creamy white, surrounding a deep green, lustrous center on each leaf makes this plant stand out even when it’s out of bloom! Of course, the bloom is outstanding starting in April as loads of bluish-purple flowers open and continue to show right into late May. And don’t worry that this variegated plant may not be as strong or as tolerant in the landscape as other Periwinkle tend to be... ‘Ralph Shugert’ grows just as well, puts up with the same shady conditions and is just as much of a landscape survivor as all the other Vinca selections... it just looks a little less common!

This selection will have you rubbing your eyes in disbelief once you see its 1" diameter, matte black flowers with a tiny yellow eye. They are the deepest, darkest Violas on the market and, even better, they have a great scent that will fill the early spring garden for weeks. Plant ‘Black Magic’ in full to partial shade and when flower production starts to slow, trim off spent blooms to encourage more. ‘Black Magic’ makes a great groundcover for shaded gardens, especially under deciduous trees where they will get dappled full sun during the early and mid spring and shade during the hotter summer. ‘Black Magic’ is a great addition to containers or can be massed in beds or used as an edging plant. They can even be used on a salad since the flowers are edible!! #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FPVIBLMA01

ZONE 5.

Is there a happier looking plant that a Viola in bloom? ‘Rebecca’ is one of the happiest ones because it stays in bloom so long, starting in late April and continuing right on through the summer months with oodles of white and lemon pansies with petals edged in striking purple. The show will make you happy and the flowers look even better perched above a dense mound of deep green, lustrous foliage. ‘Rebecca’ is an easy care beauty that grows well in full sun to full shade but it will flower bigger and brighter in a partial shade spot where you can group them and grin back at the happy flowers all season.

ZONE 4.

How can such a small plant have such a huge flower output? I guess we’ll never know, but don’t ponder that question too long, just sit back and enjoy a season-long show of bloom that stretches from late April right on through September! Dense, rounded plants with deep green foliage are constantly alive with creamy yellow flowers that are edged in purple and loaded with fragrance.

Deeply dissected green foliage forms a tight mound of fine textured foliage in the spring. As the season warms and moves towards June, stems rise above, topped with masses of small buds that expand to flattened heads 2-3" in diameter as they open in early to mid-June. These numerous, soft, lilac-pink blossom heads will are an attractive early summer burst of color for your sunny garden. Like all yarrow, ‘Pretty Belinda’, despite her delicate looking foliage and pretty bloom, is one tough customer as it will thrive in poor, sandy soils and drought conditions without blinking. After its bloom is finished in late July, cut back ‘Pretty Belinda’ because pruning will stimulate more butterfly attracting bloom as the summer wanes. 8" container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The buds continue to swell and mark the beginning of summer by opening with a heavy floral cascade of large, white fringed, dusky rose to cherry red, elongated, bell shaped flowers. This extremely showy bloom will light up the garden until late July and will make a big impression grouped in the middle of any half to full day sun garden. ‘Cherry Bells’ prefers well drained, fertile loam to clay soils and requires only a fall cutting and clean up after frost to be ready to play its summer song for you next year. 6.75

‘Pink Flamingo’ may sound tropical, but it is one of the hardiest and earliest blooming of any Clematis. Its nodding, soft blushing pink flowers with darker veins that slowly fade to the tips of the petals, unfurl in April and continue into June followed by decorative seed heads later in the season. ‘Pink Flamingo’ is very prolific and attracts hummingbirds and butterflies while deer and rabbits avoid feeding on the flowers and foliage. Plant this hardy Clematis in a sunny to partially shaded garden... the best garden performance results from the top of the plant being in full sun with the roots cooled by a thick layer of mulch or shallow rooted groundcover. Little pruning is needed with the exception of removing weak or dead parts of the vine after blooming. 8" pot . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Of course, you might not even think about that easy care bonus when you first spy this plant that features sharply edged, maple-like foliage in a striking pink-purple shade with darker venation. The foliage is held upright to form a dense mound that spreads aggressively to add outstanding color to any sunny to partially shaded garden. Tall spikes of light pink flowers that rise above the foliage from late May through July and wave in the breeze just add to this plant’s allure.

PP#12,164 Mature 12-16"t. x12-16"w. ZONE 4. ‘Dayglow Pink’ may surprise you with its ability to impress throughout the year with foliage and bloom color but shouldn’t surprise you with how easy it is to grow. All Heucherellas are very hardy and extremely adaptable to most exposures but ‘Dayglow Pink’ stands above the rest with outstanding foliage featuring deeply divided, trident shaped, light to medium green foliage with a narrow chocolate inlay along the central veins. Brilliant, dayglow pink flowers appear on 16" spikes starting in early May and continue through the summer until August. These flowers, while small, are amazingly showy, floating above the foliage, and will prove to be quite attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies. ‘Dayglow Pink’ performs the best in partial shade but will tolerate full shade or sun although a full sun exposure will require added water and may result in flowers that are slightly less colorful. In full shade it will grow slower and in full sun it needs constant moisture and the intense sunlight can mute the pink flowers. ‘Dayglow Pink’ performs beautifully grouped in borders, edging, or in containers.

With large, outstretched, pointed leaves variegated with hues of blue, green and white, this sport of Hosta ‘Blue Angel’ looks like it could have been created by Monet himself. An elegant and tasteful addition to any shaded garden, ‘Guardian Angel’ is slow growing at first but will become a considerable clump with age and will display better foliage color that stays distinct in its variegation longer in cooler summer climates. In August ‘Guardian Angel’ accents her foliage with near white, non-fragrant blooms that hover above the plant like angels from heaven. Like all hosta, this selection prefers moist soil with average drainage and partial to full shade. Alone or in groups, it makes a colorful, easy care garden statement.

ZONE 3.

In Italian, “Paradiso” means paradise, and the beauty of this namesake poppy is not too far from it. Its large, crisp, medium pink flowers stand out atop stiff, 2' tall stems and look different from their Oriental Poppy relatives because the flower petals lack the ‘crinkles’ prominent in many other poppy blooms. This clean, smooth look is distinctive and the color is even more so, especially when contrasted to the flower’s jet black, bulging center that the petals surround. ‘Paradiso’ blooms heavily in May into early June and will look outstanding if grouped in the middle or back of any sunny, well-drained soil location. Like all Oriental poppies, ‘Paradiso’ will disappear in the heat of summer so be sure to plant another plant that will fill the gap as you look forward to this vision of paradise in your garden next spring. 8" container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Looking for a pink lilac with the traditional lilac scent? ‘Maiden’s Blush’ is it! This early blooming Lilac blooms about 1 week before the common and French lilacs and is considered the best pink Lilac available on the market. The single, very fragrant blooms are held above a cloud of green leaves in big, attractive cones that will dazzle in early to mid-May. These factors, as well as being able to survive the coldest of winters and maintaining an upright form, makes ‘Maiden’s Blush’ a perfect plant for full sun or partial shade, to be planted alone as a specimen or in groups to create a deliciously fragrant border planting. Try planting ‘Maiden’s Blush’ near a porch or walkway to better enjoy the heavenly scented blooms and beauty.

ZONE 5.

‘Giles Van Hees’ is a dwarf variety of Speedwell and its dense, compact form, along with its oversized display of reddish-pink, long-lived flowers will make this plant a staple in any perennial bed. Plant it in the front or middle of the border to best enjoy its bloom beginning in early June, or use it in a container garden where its dense form and brilliant bloom will flourish. Once the flowers are past, shear off the spent blooms to encourage a later summer reblooming that will inject life into your late summer garden. ‘Giles Van Hees’ loves full sun and moist, well-drained soil for the optimum flower performance and it is extremely forgiving, requiring very little care to thrive. Butterflies and hummingbirds love its sweet flowers, while deer avoid the flowers and its deep green serrated leaves. 8" pot . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

In Greek mythology, Aphrodite was the goddess of beauty and her Rose of Sharon namesake lives up to that image.

Starting to bloom in late July, ‘Aphrodite’ graces the garden with waves of flowers through early September, dominating the landscape in a way that only a mythological diety might. Half to full day sun and very well drained soil is a must and in return it tolerates deer, drought, heat, humidity, air pollution, rabbits and salt spray.

At first appearance this grass looks great, but maybe a little too delicate for your landscape situation. Looks can be deceiving because its delicate appearance belies the fact that ‘Ice Dance’ is a tough, colorful, all-purpose, all exposure grass that demands a home in your garden. Half inch wide, deep green blades are brightly bordered in pure white and form a dense, spreading, rounded clump that is neat and well kept. Carex are native to shaded woodland areas so ‘Ice Dance’ performs well in shade but also thrives in partial shade or sun.

A new introduction from Itsaul Plants, this variegated Northern Sea Oats is second to none. Striking green and white variegated foliage is held on loosely branched, arching stalks adding a vivid texture and color to a sunny to partially shaded garden. Loose clusters of white and green oat-like seed heads provide late summer interest. The dried seed heads last through the winter providing a seed source for local song birds before they head south for the winter or while they hunker down and brave the wrath of winter here. Brightly contrasting foliage and interesting seed heads make ‘River Mist’ an excellent addition to the garden in small groupings or for single use as a specimen plant. Cut back in late winter to make room for the new spring shoots.

While not having a significant flower, the bold yellow variegation makes this grass outstanding. Does well in the shade, a rarity among ornamental grasses. Blooms in July.

Crisp white variegation sets this Carex apart. Leaves are narrow and have a tight, clumping form with a clean landscape appearance. Nice and bright, overall silvery effect for an otherwise shady location. Great liriope substitute for Northern climate.

This compact form of Deschampsia boasts shorter tussocks of arching, dark green, semievergreen leaves that are highly ornamental. Delicate silvery purple blooms appear later than the species starting in late June or early July and mature to a golden straw color in August with these attractive, golden seed heads remaining colorful into the winter. These golden flower plumes shoot up about 8" above the foliage, making an eye-catching combination with the dark green foliage! ‘Goldtau’ thrives in partial sun to light shade but can handle hot, dry conditions well as long as you can supply some supplemental water. This compact, cool season grass is never overbearing or overpowering and works great singly, in combination with other woodies and perennials or as a group in any garden. #1 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ZONE 5.

There is no ornamental grass quite like Hakonechloa with striking color and an arching form that resembles a cascading miniature bamboo. Named the Perennial Plant Association’s 2009 Perennial Plant of the Year because of its many uses in the garden as a groundcover, a border-front specimen, a mass planning or in a container, its bright yellow leaves with very thin green striping brightens up the darkest garden area, while its cascading form responds to slight breezes with the blades moving like waves in the ocean. ‘Aureola’ slowly spreads by stolons and is not a threat to other garden companions with its slow spreading nature and it complements other plants in the garden well, especially those with dark foliage. This stunning grass loves partial shade which will provide optimum conditions for the best color, especially in warmer climates and moist, well drained soils that are protected against drought. In the cooler days of autumn the golden foliage becomes tinged with shades of pink and red to add even more adventure to your landscape! #1 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

“Fubuki” means “snowstorm" and the new ornamental grass bearing that name lives up to its meaning admirably. With contrasting tones of white and green variegation on its pendulous, flowing, mounding foliage throughout the summer, Fubuki™ is an outstanding and very colorful plant for shade and partial sun locations adding a little bit of snowy color into the summer environment. To add to the amazing color show, as soon as the weather begins to cool in autumn, a deep pink shade takes its place among the already colorful foliage blades. ‘Fubuki’™ has a compact and mounding habit that tends to be lower in height than other Ornamental Grass cultivars making it a great choice for beds, borders or as a specimen, Group three or five plants together in a shaded area to really put on a flowing show of color!

Finally!! At long last here is a dwarf from of Miscanthus ‘Variegata’ that looks showy and doesn’t carry some of the baggage of the full sized plant! ‘Rigoletto’ is half the size of ‘Variegata’ and keeps a dense, full form that does not succumb to opening up in the center and toppling over, a malady that can plague ‘Variegata’. Its shorter height, along with the strong, creamy white-andgreen vertical variegation on narrower foliage makes ‘Rigoletto’ a perfect specimen for any space, large or small! It’s a perfect plant for grouping for a sweep of foliage color in any sunny to partly sunny area and is extremely easy to grow, tolerating most well-drained soils.

What makes this gold striped grass different than the rest? How about outstanding texture and form with this grass maturing into a sizable, but far from overwhelming clump that is far better suited to a smaller space or a container than most Miscanthus. Another striking contrast finds foliage that is much narrower than other yellow striped grasses with a white central rib that adds color along with its abundant brilliantly yellow cross hatching to create a fine textured, extremely colorful grass. You’ll fall in love with its neat, upright form and want to use plenty in your landscape and there’s no reason not to, as they look as spectacular in groups as used singly.

Everyone who has grown Ornamental Grasses knows that Zebra and Porcupine Grasses are incredibly showy in the summer with their yellow banded foliage. ‘Super Stripe’ lives up to its name by “out striping” the others with enough yellow banded color to make these plants jump to the forefront in any landscape. Lush, deep green foliage slowly emerges in the spring with growth momentum and signature yellow bands emerging quicker as late spring heat builds, forming an upright, spreading mound that demands to be seen. Tall flower stalks rise 2-3' above the colorful foliage in August to reveal tawny, fine textured seed heads that dance in the wind from late August through October. ‘Super Stripe’ loves full sun and is an amazing sight when grouped toward the back of a planting. #2 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

True black does not exist in the horticultural world, but Black Mondo Grass is as close as one gets. Strap-like, shiny foliage grows in little tufts that slowly spread by underground stolons. The newer leaves start out with a greenish hue but soon age to the dark purplish black color that has made this plant famous. Its grass-like foliage contrasts beautifully with variegated woodland plants and with its own bell shaped, light pink flowers produced on upright racemes in midsummer. Flowers give way to fleshy black seeds that often remain on the plant through the winter. While the flowers and fruit are interesting, the true interest in this plant is its rare, incredible foliage color. It is extraordinary when paired with chartreuse foliage or when planted in a mixed container for a shady deck. Plant it in groups in partial shade for a truly rare color injection for your landscape!

Straight from the University of Connecticut’s breeding program, this exciting new Panicum will get immediate notice in the garden. Why? There is no other Panicum that turns as deeply and fantastically red as this show-stopping selection. ‘Ruby Ribbons’ is the result of a cross with one parent being ‘Heavy Metal’ so you know its summer foliage will be metallic blue with red overtones and very attractive. As the cooler weather of fall approaches, so does the red color with the foliage getting so infused with red, you might think you are looking at Pennisetum rubrum from a distance. It is incredibly darker than ‘Shenandoah’ and perfect for putting on a late summer and fall show of red that will have you riveted. Plant ‘Ruby Ribbons’ in a sunny spot in any well-drained soil and it will thrive. Plant it in groups to create colorful sweeps in the garden that will take your breath away.

Cool gray-blue foliage and strong upright stems make ‘Prairie Blues’ an excellent choice for massing in sunny gardens. The stems and foliage are a songbird magnet because they are perfect for bird nesting and cover while their seeds are enjoyed by many local song birds in the fall and winter. In the fall, cool weather turns the cool blue foliage of ‘Prairie Blues’ a striking rosy-orange color that lights up the landscape. In fact, the foliage is so colorful, some even use it for dried flower arrangements! ‘Prairie Blues’ is easy to grow needing little or no maintenance to thrive and it’s an excellent choice for sunny, dry, well-drained soils since it is quite drought tolerant. Its deer resistant nature makes it even more valuable.

If you love Pennisetum orientale you’re going to love ‘Karley Rose’. This chance seedling is bigger and bolder than P. orientale with darker foliage, a more upright look, and wider, deeper pink inflorescences that start to show in late July and keep on wowing through the rest of the summer and fall. ‘Karley Rose’ is even hardier than the species meaning you can plant and admire with confidence!

Sure it’s a tender perennial at best, but you won’t mind a bit when you take a look at the stunning flower color and flowering prowess of this mighty mite of a plant. Dense, full and rounded, ‘Princess Anouska’ does not look delicate, but at the same time, you’ll be shocked by the power of its white accented purple flower and the ferocity of its bloom. Flowers can completely cover the plant at times from late May through the summer and it will be rare to see it without at least a few blooms to captivate you. ‘Princess Anouska’ will look great grouped in a filtered, full sun location or when used grouped in a mixed container on a deck or patio. 8" pot . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ZONE 4.

There are lots of anemones out there but we like this one because of its easy to grow nature and the fact that it seems much less susceptible to many of the leaf problems that can plague other varieties. Of course, being easy to grow means nothing if it doesn’t look good. Rest assured this plant looks great with a much denser form than other anemones and a stronger flowering arsenal with tons of deep pink, yellow centered, daisy-like flowers with a double row of petals that begin blooming in early August and continue right on through September. This blooming demon loves partial shade and is magnificent when planted in groups as it lights up the late season garden.

If you thought Aquilegia ‘Clementine Red’ was out of this world, ‘Clementine Blue’ will leave you gasping when you see its unique blue color and its incredible will to bloom! Like its red sibling, ‘Clementine Blue’ produces a dense, full, uniform plant that covers itself with buds in late April that open to reveal clouds of flowers that keep on coming through mid-June. You’ll love this plant’s unique, deep, rich blue flower color that’s even more exciting given its stunning double, almost dahlia-like flower form. ‘Clementine Blue’ is a plant that deserves a place of honor in your spring garden. It will thrive and shine in full sun or partial shade and will knock your socks off when planted in a group!!

Even old things seem new if they are around long enough, as proved by this underused selection of columbine that will have you wondering how it ever fell out of use in the garden. The first thing that jumps out at you is its totally unique looking flower form. It’s only unique because it is rarely seen in the garden these days, but its pendulous, multi-petalled, multi-ribbed blossoms known as a ‘Granny’s Bonnet’ style have been around in Europe since the 16th century! Despite its old style, it will look totally avant garde in your garden as it sits above a taller growing plant with deep green, highly cut foliage. To go along with its old school bloom, ‘Dorothy Rose’ has an old school work ethic that sees it blooming like crazy between late April and early June, creating a garden show to remember.

How can you not be entranced by this columbine that places its buds on short stems above deep, green-blue foliage that open to feature incredibly long spurred, pure white flowers with golden yellow stamens that literally jump off the plant in a partially shaded garden. This big bloom makes even more of an impact when you consider how many of them actually are on the plant from late April to early May... enough to make the plant nearly disappear below the flowers!

Maybe it is the profusion of primrose yellow blooms that are lightly brushed with pink that stand above deep green foliage on this dense, compact plant that adds to that sunny feel or maybe it’s the fact that the flowers ‘look at you’, facing more horizontal than most selections of columbine that tend to have more pendulous blooms. Whatever the reason, you’ll find yourself infused with spring fever for weeks as ‘Goldfinch’ blooms with great vigor from late April to early June. ‘Goldfinch’ is as easy to grow as it is to look at needing only a partially shaded spot with moist, well-drained soil to thrive for years! 8" pot . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The result: at least 6 weeks of viewing pleasure from late April through early June from a plant that just seems to have an inexhaustible reserve of flowers. ‘Nightingale’ is as easy to grow as it is easy on the eyes needing only a partially shaded, well-drained spot.

The flowers are most definitely worth seeking out in April and early May and are fully double the size of its Asarum relatives. As an added bonus, the plant remains evergreen to 10 degrees F and is perfect for planting in shady, humusy areas.

As the weather cools, dark green foliage turn a deep, bronzy purple-red and is a riveting presence in the fall garden and can even persist throughout the winter in zone 6 or warmer climates. ‘Cabernet’ is an easy care plant wanting just afternoon shade and well-drained soil to be happy.

The double flower effect is a unique characteristic that makes this bellflower stand out, but its this plant’s ease of growing that will make you feel great. ‘Bernice’ loves a sunny, to partially sunny spot with well-drained soil and will happily go on providing its summer show with little input from you for years!

ZONE 5.

There is nothing like a clear breakthrough in breeding to get a gardener excited, so there is bound to be excitement over this great selection of bellflower. Extremely dense and spreading, this plant will reach only 6" tall when out of flower and spread far wider creating a near groundcover effect in the landscape. While its form is different and fresh, it’s the blooming power of ‘Viking’ that will have you begging for more. Stiff flower stalks rise above the foliage in mid-spring with flower buds that open in mid-May to begin a nearly 3 month succession of almost tubular, lilacblue flowers that are held tightly above the foliage. This plants immense blooming time is more than double that of any other bellflower. Its blooms are sterile so no energy is exerted producing seed, providing the energy for this much longer bloom time. ‘Viking’ is easy to grow and will dominate the show in your garden, especially when planted in a group. 8" pot. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

‘Fusion’ FUSION PINKS NEW PPAF Mature: 8-12"t. x 8-12"w. ZONE 5. Was this plant named for the fusion of so many great garden traits? It could easily be the case once you see its tight spreading mound of needle-like greenish-blue foliage that holds up without melting out in the heat like many dianthus. Or, you might think about the name ‘Fusion’ when you view its amazingly long bloom time that starts in late April and continues into late June, in combination with its striking flower color and lusciously spicy flower scent. While ‘Fusion’ is a fusion of all these great traits, this plant really got its name from the unique way its flowers age. Each individual flower opens dark red with a scattering of bright pink blotches. As the blooms age, the blotches meld together to change the flower color to bright pink with the dark red original color relegated to the edges of the petals, creating a stunning color contrast.

The quantity of this plant’s bloom does not overshadow its bloom quality... you’ll be thrilled with the golden yellow color of each large bloom that is dominated by a giant orange-yellow cone surrounded by somewhat short, stubby rays making each bloom eyecatching and a little different from your run of the mill coneflower bloom. ‘Maui Sunshine’ will put on an even brighter show in your sunny garden border when all the nectar seeking butterflies and hummingbirds show up vying for a meal. That raucous color show will continue into fall as songbirds love to feed on the spent flower seeds!

‘Merlot’ MERLOT CONEFLOWER

‘Firebird’ will add a fiery touch to your summer garden with a constant supply of flowers from July through September that open to a fiery scarlet red and age to an only slightly less intense orange red. The color is easily one of the most intense yet in this rapidly changing genus and the flower itself is somewhat unique, too. Each flower looks like the shuttlecock in a badminton game with strongly recurved petals surrounding a prominently bulbous center cone that, while deep sienna brown in color, takes on a nearly black look against the fiery red backdrop of petals. ‘Firebird’ is medium sized for an Echinacea and will fit in nicely when grouped in the middle or back of a sunny garden. As if its striking flower color wasn’t enough, more color in the form of butterflies, hummingbirds and songbirds will flock to this plant for nectar and seeds.

Fragrant, pale lavender flowers are borne on 30-36" scapes in August and will fill the garden will sweet scent.

This foliage lines up along upright, densely held stems and forms a large, fragrant, rounded bush that carries sweet-scented, lavender colored flower spikes on branch tips from mid-June through mid-August. ‘Grosso’ is a profuse bloomer and a strong, dependable landscape performer providing the location where it’s planted is extremely well-drained and devoid of standing water, especially in the winter months. Plant it in groups and be sure to cut and dry plenty since the foliage and flowers will retain their great aroma in arrangements and potpourris!

German Iris are so stunning in the garden, it’s a shame that many varieties bloom so fleetingly, seemingly out of color in a handful of days. ‘Best Bet’ is one of the pioneers in lengthening German Iris bloom time so there is more time to enjoy what is a signature mid-spring blooming plant. Early May shows big, bulbous buds shooting above strap-like foliage and unfurling in mid-May to reveal a stunning two-toned look with pale blue flower standards with a backdrop of deep, rich, dark blue falls. It’s a stunning show that lasts well into June to give you more time to cut these fragrant blooms and brighten up the inside of your house. Plant ‘Best Bet’ in well-drained soil in a sunny area and take your time to enjoy the show!

Deep green foliage forms a tight basal mound as it arises from the soil in the spring. As late spring approaches, numerous long spikes of buds rise above the foliage. As these spikes begin to unfurl their bloom in mid to late June, you’ll immediately discover that this is no ordinary salvia. Long, full spikes of purple flushed with crimson flowers will take your breath away and will be very distinct from all the other salvia that may be blooming in your garden at the time. ‘Royal Crimson Distinction’ is easy to grow, loves full sun, makes a great cut flower and will look even more distinctive when planted in groups to produce a wave of color. 8" pot . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Its foliage is a great, season long attribute that emerges in early April deep green with distinct, nearly luminous whitish-silver spots and forms a dense basal mound of leaves. Flower stalks rise out of this silver spotted mass and open to reveal strings of raspberry colored flowers that continue to bloom through the end of May adding a flourish to already showy leaves. ‘Raspberry Splash’ is best planted in shade or partial shade with moist, well-drained soil and is very impressive when grouped at the front of a garden. 8" pot. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Here is a pulmonaria that is so outstanding you would think people would be standing in line to latch onto its great foliage. It is rounder than the average lungwort and incredibly attractive with gray-white leaves surrounded by an irregular edge of the deepest dark green. This foliage emerges early in the spring to form a dense full hussock of a plant that will begin to show off flowers in mid-April continuing into late May. ‘Moonshine’s’ light blue to nearly white flowers are quite unusual and make a great shade contrast to other blue flowered varieties.

Its dense, compact, low profile form nearly recedes into the garden until it starts to put up 3 to 4" long flower spikes above its foliage in late spring. As the small, deep purple flowers begin to open in June this plant leaps into your consciousness and then it overwhelms it as ‘Marcus’ covers itself with bloom, almost completely obscuring the tightly bunched, deep green lancelike foliage. ‘Marcus’ will bloom into September especially if spent blooms are pruned off, and is right at home in a sunny garden with well-drained soil and, given its small stature, is a plant that begs to be massed to overwhelm the senses when in bloom.

Even better, ‘Alabaster’ is a plant that has so few problems and is so easy to grow, you might want to consider planting a group in the shadier back regions of your garden and watch the area just light up during spring bloom. Alabaster does best in cool climates, partial to full shade and in moist, well drained soils.

You’ll never be without color when ‘Early Sensation’ finds a home in your garden. Part of a new generation of reblooming hydrangea, ‘Early Sensation’ lives up to its name by providing big, blue, mophead style flowers up to 6" in diameter from early July right on through until October. What makes ‘Early Sensation’ even more sensational is the fact that all this color comes from a smaller stature, dense, compact plant that makes it perfect for slightly smaller landscape spots. This selection is so floriferous that you might not even notice how nice its deep green, mildew tolerant foliage looks! ‘Early Sensation’ is sensational for growing alone as a specimen or grouping for a summer of cool blue color that will take your breath away! Don’t forget to cut a few blossoms to bring inside throughout the summer because they hold up very well in a vase, too! 8" pot 8-10" . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

It’s hard to believe that this plant that is so floriferous and so fragrant is so unknown and so underused that it doesn’t even have a decent common name! Even with all that it will rapidly become your favorite plant in the landscape. Its dense, rounded shape makes it easy to love and easy to use in small spots or in groups in sunny spots with moist, well-drained soil. In late May masses of flower buds open to 1" long, narrow, tubular, deep purple flowers that nearly obscure the foliage and fill the air with their sweet scent. The main bloom season for leptodermis lasts 4 to 6 weeks, but new growth on the plant will give rise to considerable flowers throughout the summer and into the early fall on a plant that won’t give up until cold weather makes it! 8” pot 8-10" . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Some plants are all about the foliage and they can be even more striking than plants with masses of flowers. Variegated Aralia is one of those plants with big, deep green, palmate foliage with each leaflet bordered by a distinct edge of creamy white. Its strong variegation is made even showier by its rare five-fingered palmate foliage and by its dense, rounded form that thrives in partial to full shade. Mature plants will light up dark areas with their two-toned show and they will perform admirably as a specimen or a grouped to form a border planting. Be careful handling this plant since it is known for its strong, long spines on branches. Variegated Aralia is drought resistant and tolerates poor soils with ease.

Unlike many larger selections, ‘Tinkerbelle’™ has a more refined landscape texture with small, medium green, tightly packed foliage that makes it stand out from its relatives. Its flower power is also remarkable as small towers of deep, wine-red buds seem to cover the plant in early May, opening to striking deep pink bloom creating a bi-color effect that is unique and breathtaking.

There is not a pieris you’ll find that has the flower power that this selection brings to the landscape. Its dense, rounded form comes into early spring teeming with long strings of flower buds at stem terminals that open in mid-April to clouds of white flowers that barely reveal the leathery, medium green foliage below. ‘Avalanche’ seems to bloom forever, holding its flowers as the cool of April warms into mid-May, still looking like a cascade of white. Once its bloom does go by, its new growth stays tidy and dense making this a plant that can be used singly in a small space or one that can be used in groups without overwhelming a spot. While this selection will tolerate a sunny spot, it loves partial shade to shade, is deer resistant, and will put on an unforgettable early spring show in that location.

ZONE 3.

Lilacs have always been a bit out of reach for anyone with space concerns due to their bulky nature, but ‘Prairie Petite’ is a dream come true for those who have confined spaces to deal with, as it matures at less than half the size of a normal lilac. It may be smaller in size, but it doesn’t skimp on flower power, as big cones of buds open to deep pink flowers in early to mid-May, unfurling their beauty and beguiling scent for all to enjoy. The profuse blooms fade to lavender as they age and can be used to great effect as a cut flower in the home. ‘Prairie Petite’ will grow well in half to full day sun and is perfect as a stand alone small specimen or grouped to form an enticing little hedge. 8" pot 10-12" . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

It will astound you with a season long supply of semi-double, 3-4" diameter flowers that are a swirl of apricot shades with luminous yellow centers. If that sounds great, there’s more… each blossom ages to a shocking lipstick pink before cleanly dropping off, giving this plant a color range that is hard to equal. ‘All the Rage’ is outstanding for use as a specimen, but it’s tough enough to use in mass plantings in full sun to turn a previously drab landscape area into an easy care cacophony of color you’ll love!

Incredibly easy to grow, ‘Autumn Flame’ is an outstanding looking tree with a clean summer look and blazing fall foliage color that make it a plant that should be used even more. This is one of the earliest flowering of all our native maples with its small, deep red flowers opening in early to midApril providing one of the earliest nectar sources for native bees and butterflies. Medium green, trident shaped leaves form a thick but not impenetrable head that provides great shelter and nesting area for a wide variety of birds. There is not a more spectacular foliage show in the fall than ‘Autumn Flame’ with its early to mid-Autumn explosion of fiery crimson color. This American Beauties signature tree tolerates moisture and even wet feet while performing famously in the landscape.

Native Mature: 30'+ ZONE 4. This aggressively growing vine adds an old fashioned touch to the landscape while also adding the modern plus of attracting butterflies to the landscape. In years past, this easy to grow plant was used extensively to cool porches in the summer with its big, deep green heart shaped leaves. While porches have lessened in popularity, this plant has never lost its popularity with butterflies that are attracted to its unique, elongated, green, pipe-like flowers that bloom in late spring and whose leaves provide an essential food source for their caterpillars. This plant will grow in any sunny area and tolerates most moist, well-drained soil and is an underused American Beauties gem.

Native Mature: 20-25't. x 20-25'w. ZONE 5. It’s amazing that this plant is so unknown! Pawpaw is an understory tree native to the eastern U.S. whose other close relatives are native to the tropics. It’s a tree that fruits and was prized by colonists in America for its taste, but is nearly forgotten today except for the various forest critters that love to harvest its large, cylindrical yellow to green colored fruit with a slightly banana-like flavor. It is also a butterfly magnet in late April and early May when its deep brownish-purple flowers open up before its thick, long, tapered green leaves emerge. Better yet, it will be a perfect medium sized tree in your landscape with an easy care nature and a great story to tell! 13.50 30.00

Betula lenta is one of the great unsung heroes in the native landscape. Easy to grow, tolerant of wet areas and partial shade, this fast growing tree takes on a tight pyramidal form when young, only to broaden out to a more open, widely pyramidal shape as it matures. Big, ovate, shiny green leaves cover its branches in early spring about the same time that a large display of catkins covers those same branches. These catkins are the male flowers of this tree and are quite showy. While Betula lenta is not endowed with the flashy white bark of some of its relatives, its brown bark is attractive and it turns nearly black and separates into plates as it ages. Great yellow fall foliage color will light up the landscape on this tree that provides great cover for native birds and insects along with a food source from its small seeds to these same birds. #3 container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

HYDRANGEA

virginica ‘Henry’s Garnet’ HENRY’S GARNET VIRGINIA SWEETSPIRE

arborescens SMOOTH HYDRANGEA

Native Mature: 3-4't. x 5-6'w. ZONE 5. It’s amazing how little used this selection is when you consider all it has going for it. Start with dark green, lustrous foliage on a tight, slightly spreading form that is perfect for grouping or for using alone. Add in its show of 2-6" long racemes of white flowers that open in early June with a little fragrance to add a kick to the late spring garden and help attract a number of colorful butterflies. Finally, its amazing fall foliage color of brilliant reddish-purple will really make you stand up and take notice. An added bonus is this American Beauty tolerates many soils, from moist to dry, and partial shade while still performing at its peak. In sum, ‘Henry’s Garnet’ is an outstanding plant!

Native Mature: 3-5't. x 5-7'w. ZONE 4. Many people may ask the question, “Why grow the species of this plant when great cultivars like ‘Annabelle’ are on the market?” While ‘Annabelle’ may have superior looking flowers to the species, they are sterile flowers and their value is negligible to garden critters. This species possesses mostly fertile, but less showy flowers that are a key nectar source for native insects and butterflies. While the flowers are not as incredibly showy as ‘Annabelle’, they still are showy enough in early summer as they emerge to form 3-4" diameter balls of small white bloom surrounded by the occasional larger sterile flower against the background of big, heavy, deep green foliage. Smooth Hydrangea is easy to grow, thrives in partial shade, is perfect for grouping together to form a mass planting along a dappled sun woodline, and provides essential cover to many backyard birds. Don’t be afraid to hack this plant back hard in the fall as it will rejuvenate itself bigger and better the following spring. #2 container 10-18" . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Native Mature: 5-6't. x 6-7'w. ZONE 5. Here’s an American Beauties native with classic, yet unusual landscape beauty. Unusual because the texture of this plant stands out in sharp contrast to most shrubs its size due to its rough, cinnamon colored branches, its outsized deep green foliage, and its amazing, mammoth summer bloom. When foliated, Oakleaf Hydrangea displays big, palmately toothed, rough, deep green leaves that are a textural masterpiece. In July and August, huge white flowers made up of a pyramidal stack of individual florets up to 12" tall perch above the foliage in an incredible show that is only topped by a fantastic display of deep burgundy to orange fall foliage color. Oakleaf is a stand out in full sun or partial shade, is terrific individually or in groups, has few insect pests, and even puts on a show in the winter with its branches peeling cinnamon colored bark. Even birds love the protection its branches bring and the nesting material from its persistent dried blooms. #2 container 12-15" . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

These flowers make a great color contrast with delicate, narrow, glossy, blue-green foliage and are exceedingly popular with many butterfly species and nectar feeding bees. Even better, kalmianum tolerates poor, dry soils in full sun areas that belie its delicate look.

To many people this is just another native evergreen that is seen but not recognized for the great look and great critters it brings to the landscape. This upright growing evergreen may be about the easiest plant in the world to grow, tolerating a wide range of soils, even the poorest ones, while looking very content. Plant this as a specimen or as a tall growing hedge or border and watch how native birds come flocking to nest in its branches and to pluck the occasional berry the plant produces.

Sheep Laurel’s closest match for looks might be a mature rosemary plant with similar size and texture, making it perfect in a small garden or rock garden. This kalmia produces small rose-pink flowers from June into July that are set off perfectly by its foliage color. One of the hardiest plants in cultivation, it performs best in moist, well-drained soils with light shade as its preferred exposure and is a great addition to the native shade garden. #1 container 6-8" . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

LINDERA

Native Mature: 5-6't. x 8-10'w. ZONE 3. There may not be a plant, native or otherwise, that has as many uses and ‘talents’ as Northern Bayberry. It has a long history in the eastern U.S. due to its scent and the use of its essential oil in soaps, candles and other household products. It also has a long, storied landscape history and is a prime wildlife support plant. Northern Bayberry forms a wide, spreading presence in the landscape with deep green foliage densely held and very aromatic when crushed. It’s a very tolerant plant, surviving sun or partial shade, moist or dry soils, great conditions or seaside spray with ease, all while providing loads of cover for birds and a supply of gray, waxy berries in the fall and winter that birds love. This plant is big, so give it ample space in the landscape… it may be a great plant for that rough area you have where you can let it grow, enjoy its lushness and watch the birds flock to your yard! #1 container 6-8". . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Tiny yellow-green flowers emerge before this plant’s pungent foliage develops, providing early season nectar to native bees and butterflies. Deep green leaves provide great summer cover for birds but it’s this plant’s red berries that have birds coming from far and wide to snack on, whether they are local natives or migratory birds passing through. Showy yellow fall foliage color will really stand out in the garden. #1 container 10-15" . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Under used yet widely appreciated by those who know the plant, this shade tree brings a big checklist of pluses to the landscape. Slow to moderate growing with a distinct pyramidal canopy, Black Gum forms a dense head covered with shiny, deep green foliage that remains lustrous throughout the growing season. This plant’s flowers are inconspicuous to us, but native bees and butterflies seek this plant out for its nectar, while native birds nest here and eagerly await the deep purple berries that female flowers produce in the late summer. The fall foliage show Nyssa provides in vibrant shades of yellow, orange, and scarlet rivals that of Acer rubrum and it even tolerates dry soils, making it even more landscape useful. #5 container 3-4' . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

sylvatica ‘Wildfire’ WILDFIRE BLACK GUM TREE

Native Mature: 30+'t. x 30+'w. ZONE 4. Colorful and easy to grow, this aggressively growing vine not only is a garden essential, it is an American Beauties classic. Plant this vine anywhere that support is available. It tolerates sun and partial shade and a wide range of soils, but keep it within viewing distance because it really puts on a show while attracting a host of colorful guests. Trumpet Honeysuckle starts blooming in late spring with thin, long, tubular flowers held in groups and opening to reveal yellow inner trumpets. It blooms through the summer and attracts hummingbirds and a host of colorful native butterflies while providing shelter for nesting. Flowers lead to a bright red berry that is a prized bird food source throughout the summer and fall.

Native Mature: 40-50't. x 30-40'w. ZONE 4. There is no tree that offers a more breathtaking display of fiery foliage color in the fall than Black Gum. It’s a shame more are not out there in landscapes but ‘Wildfire’ may help change that. ‘Wildfire’ not only excels at lighting up the fall with its vibrant shades of yellow, orange and scarlet, it also offers incredible spring color with its blazing, bright red emerging foliage that matures into a deep green color by summer. Like the species, ‘Wildfire’ has the same nearly inconspicuous bloom that is a nectar magnet to native insects, the same bird attracting fruit and the same great cover that native birds prize. It’s a plant that deserves a place of landscape honor.

Sourwood’s clean foliage is a cooling presence in the landscape and great protection for your landscape’s birds.

virginiana ‘Moonglow’ MOONGLOW SWEETBAY MAGNOLIA

canbyi MOUNTAIN JADE

Native Mature: 30-35't. x 30-35'w. ZONE 5. M. virginiana is not the most well known native but ‘Moonglow’ may be a selection that changes all that. Vigorous growing and disease resistant, ‘Moonglow’ has big, deep green foliage that covers this wide, rounded plant, providing a superb backdrop to massive, creamy-white, fragrant flowers that emerge continually from June through the rest of the summer. This tree makes a large but beautiful specimen and also provides tons of shelter for nesting native birds along with an invaluable food source from the red berries contained in the big seed pods this plant produces. ‘Moonglow’ tolerates moist soils and will grow well in full sun or partial shade.

Native Mature: 8-12"t. x 2-3'w. ZONE 4. This plant has an uglier common name, Rat Stripper, likely from its low, dense, spreading habit and its shiny, deep, evergreen, prickly edged foliage that is held tight to the ground. Despite that ugly common name, Pachistima is an outstanding North American native that forms a superb looking low, nearly ground covering shrub that loves partial shade but will tolerate sun well. It’s a great plant for grouping toward the front on any planting and can be used as a mass planting to great effect. Better yet, Pachistima thrives in sandy, rocky soils that tend to give other plants fits and is perfect for planting in seashore conditions.

fruticosa ‘Coronation Triumph’ CORONATION TRIUMPH CINQUEFOIL

Native Mature: 6-8"t. x 6-8"w. ZONE 4. Many people confuse this plant and think of it as a perennial. You may be able to treat it that way, but it really is in the boxwood family and many times stands in the shadow of its overused Asian cousin, Pachysandra terminalis. Procumbens is a much better landscape plant, far less invasive yet still possessing the groundcover qualities of survival in tough areas that will make it incredibly useful in the landscape. This plant is evergreen zone 6 in the south and semi-evergreen north of this zone. It slowly forms sizable colonies of stems with whorled, deep green 2-4" long, slightly mottled leaves at the top and bare stem below. Flowers appear at the tips of stems above the foliage in early April forming a 2" tall spike of small, white very fragrant flowers that native insects flock to. As fall approaches, its mottled green foliage takes on a bluish cast and the mottling becomes far more pronounced, giving it an even better landscape look. This shade lover is perfect for massing in wooded areas and your garden critters will love the low cover it provides.

Native Mature: 2-3't. x 3-4'w. ZONE 3. Unrivaled in its ability to provide late spring and summer color to the landscape, this American Beauties exclusive shines for more reasons than just great looking flowers. There is no plant that is easier to grow with its dense, compact form, its delicate, small leaved texture, its extremely hardy constitution, and its tolerance of sandy, well-drained soils. ‘Coronation Triumph’ is one of the earliest blooming Potentillas with loads of quarter sized, bright yellow flowers that provide nectar to native bees while attracting a host of colorful native butterflies. Even the seed capsules from spent flowers provide food for ground feeding birds while the plant also provides great ground cover to these species.

While all cranberries tolerate wet growing conditions, all you’ll need is a sunny area with moist, well drained soil to raise a bumper crop of large, tart tasty red berries that mature in mid to late fall. You’ll love the fruit but ‘Pilgrim’ has far more going for it than a few berries for your holiday meal! It’s a great, easy care groundcover with teeny, dark green evergreen foliage on branches that spread wide, while staying quite low. The mid May bloom of tiny pink flowers is attractive and attracts many butterflies and native insects as a nectar source. Of course, the fruit is just as attractive to our bird friends as to us! Plant ‘Pilgrim’ in groups for a functional, fruitful fabulous native landscape bonanza.

Native Mature: 6-8't. x 5-6'w. ZONE 4. We think of the category heirloom when we talk about older tomatoes but ‘Rubel’ might be considered an heirloom highbush blueberry. It’s a great old variety found in the wild in the early 1900’s and still grown commercially today with its outstanding high yield of small, tart, extremely flavorful berries that are considered the best of all the blueberries for use in preserves and baking. Even better, ‘Rubel’ has nearly twice the level antioxident than all the other highbush blueberries making it the most healthful variety, too!! ‘Rubel’, like all blueberries, is easy to grow and extremely attractive, especially in the fall with its fiery red foliage and in the winter with bright yellow stems. #2 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Native Mature: 5-6't. x 5-6'w. ZONE 4. This improved selection of arrowwood will knock your socks off along with lending a hand to a significant number of backyard critters! ‘Blue Blaze’ is a thick, dense selection that is more compact that the species and possesses much more attractive, incredibly dark green, lustrous foliage for sharp, season long beauty. Heads of creamy white flowers bloom in late May and early June providing an outstanding nectar source for native bees and butterflies. These flowers lead to heads of deep blue almost black berries that are a prime songbird food source. ‘Blue Blaze’ is an outstanding plant to use singly or in groups and tolerates moist even wet soils with ease while providing outstanding cover and nesting opportunities for birds and small mammals. Add all that to an incredible purplish-red fall foliage display and you have an essential American Beauties shrub.

Native Mature: 15-20't. x 15-20'w. ZONE 5. If you love the wisteria bloom but hate the fact that it can be one of the most noxious, overpowering, invasive plants in the landscape, why not try this outstanding, native alternative that gives you outstanding bloom without most of the headaches. ‘Amethyst Falls’ is far less aggressive than other wisteria, yet still produces a twining woody vine that deserves a heavy duty arbor or support. Soft, gray-green compound foliage emerges later than many plants in late April or early May followed immediately by big bud clusters that elongate and open in mid to late May revealing grape-like clusters of deep lilac to purple flowers. It’s an incredible show of bloom that you, along with any neighboring native insect and butterflies, will love. Even better, ‘Amethyst Falls’ blooms dependable at an early age while most of the Asian imports seem content just to foliate you to death! This American native is so superior to the imported variety it makes you wonder why anyone would grow any other Wisteria.

Native Mature: 7-8't. x 5-6'w. ZONE 5. One of the best Viburnums available, this plant is known by few people but cherished by birds everywhere. One look at its dense, rounded form tells you that it is a great plant to provide cover and nesting area to a considerable group of our favorite birds. What you might not know is that birds are enthralled by the dark blue to black berries produced in the late summer as a result of big, fragrant, white colored April-May flower heads. Even better, ‘Winterthur’ tolerates partial shade well while growing famously in a wide range of soils from dry to moist. ‘Winterthur’ is perfect alone or in groups to create a bird friendly, American Beauties hedge and it will take your breath away in the fall with a foliage show of crimson-purple color that must be seen to be appreciated. # 3 container 15-36" . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ZONE 3.

Like all wisteria, this native to the lower mid-Atlantic area is a quick grower that needs space and support to grow and look its best. A heavy arbor will allow this plant to thrive and do what it loves to do: grow and produce spectacular, 8-10" long racemes of lavender-blue flowers in late May that may repeat during the summer months. Its flower display is breathtaking, fragrant and attractive to any number of native insects and butterflies looking to fill up on nectar. ‘Blue Moon’ loves full sun and will flower its best in that environment, but it will tolerate less sun and still grow well. While this selection is native further south, it is one of the most northern hardy of all wisteria and blooms reliably into zone 3. ‘Blue Moon’ is a nearly ‘no care’ plant. In fact, your pruning will encourage vegetative growth at the expense of bloom so cut judiciously! #3 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Maybe because it seems common, maybe because it looks different, but this American Beauties native has a lot of landscape attributes that make it a garden must-have! Extremely tough, drought tolerant and willing to put up with the driest, sandiest soils, yucca forms a rounded, spreading mound of long, pointed, deep green, spear-like foliage that gives rise to a towering flower stem that elevates above the greenery in early June. Big, white, bell-like flowers open along the stem for up to 3' of its length attracting a range of colorful butterflies to sample their nectar throughout late June and July. Yucca does well in full sun and is equally at home in the perennial garden as well as the shrub border.

Group planting will help hold ground and help attract nectar loving native insects and butterflies!

Native Mature: 2-3't. x 18-24"w. ZONE 3.

Vigorous and somewhat upright, this selection forms a tight bush with fine textured, needlelike foliage that tops itself with countless buds in late spring. These flower buds open in late June revealing single yellow daisy blooms by the boatload, continuing into August. It’s such an easy to grow, easy care plant that once it’s established you need do nothing but enjoy the show, especially the hoards of butterflies that will be drawn to the bloom like steel to a magnet. Plant this selection in full sun and give it well-drained soil, then stand back and watch the summer show.

racemosa BUGBANE

Like its beefier relative, Baptisia australis, Baptisia minor combines stunning bloom with a tough, drought-resistant nature that serves it well in the home landscape. What differs on this plant is that it is half the size of australis, making it easier to use in smaller spaces while still getting the full sized benefit of its beauty. While smaller, it certainly doesn’t skimp on the bloom as 6 to 8" tall spikes of purple Lupine-like flowers rise above enticing, grayish-green, pea-like foliage to put on a jaw dropping show in late May and early June. Adding to its appeal, this Baptisia will attract colorful native insects and butterflies seeking nectar, making its bloom time an even more colorful event. Plant this Baptisia in sunny, well-drained areas and don’t be afraid to use it in groups for a breathtaking late spring show. #1 Container. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Native Mature: 18-21"t. x 18-21"w. ZONE 3. This great northeast native is one of those plants that can blend into the background at times. Sure, its foliage is very nice with deep, dark green elliptical leaves that form a dense, upright, rounded bush, but it really doesn’t stand out until late summer when buds start to form at the base of the top leaves on each stem. These buds open in late August and continue throughout September showing off deep blue-violet flowers that are considerable enough to make this plant’s upright stems begin to weep over from the bloom weight. It’s a great show from a plant that is very easy to grow and very tolerant, thriving in moist to wet soils and shadier areas and providing outstanding garden cover for critters, especially when planted in groups.

Native Mature: 30-36"t. x 12-15"w. ZONE 4. This rare plant is native to the New England area, thriving at one point in open sites with dry, sandy soils and even along the coast on sand dune areas. Even though it has become increasingly rare, it’s an outstanding, easy care plant for the garden that rewards you with loads of great summer bloom without burdening you with lots of care issues. Multiple stems break from the soil in early spring with narrow, strap-like leaves forming a considerable clump that gets taller and more vase shaped as the spring and summer progresses. Buds from at the end of stems in the summer and open in August to form a spike of frilly, reddish-purple tufted flowers with a few strap-like petals emerging from the tuft to give the flower its blazing star name. It blooms into September attracting numerous bird and butterflies and it thrives in full sun while tolerating partial shade. Plant it in groups in the back of a perennial bed for great summer colr and wildlife attracting possibilities. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Mature: 30-36"t. x 18-24"w.

ZONE 4.

This chance seedling takes a great plant, Lobelia cardinalis, and makes it even better until you will wonder how your landscape ever looked good without it! ‘Fried Green Tomatoes’ differs from the species in great ways like increased vigor, far more ease of establishment in the landscape, a strikingly different foliage color, and even more butterfly and hummingbird attracting bloom than the original. This plant emerges quickly to form a maroon colored, upright mound of foliage that keeps extending upward, topping itself with spikes of flower buds as summer approaches. In mid to late June, the flowers begin to open to reveal their brilliant red hue while the foliage simultaneously begins to turn a deep olive shade on top, while maintaining its maroon coloration on leaf undersides. The result is a colorful bonanza for any sunny moist area of your garden made even brighter by those nectar seeking butterflies and hummingbirds. Immense amounts of flower stems per plant ensure a long bloom period on this extremely winter hardy perennial that will look fabulous grouped along streams and pond edges. #2 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Native Mature: 18-24"t. x 15-18"w. ZONE 4. A signature native woodland plant, this selection is a must for its incredible show of early season color and its strong native critter virtues. Foliage emerges early, just as the weather starts warming in March, with its long, oval shape and blue-green color, followed quickly by a spike that rises above, clustered heavily with buds. These buds open in early to mid-April showing off long, trumpet-like flowers that start pink but rapidly turn blue. Blooming until early to mid-May, Virginia Bluebells stay in flower just long enough to wow you with flower power that is outsized for such a small plant, much to the benefit of early season moths, butterflies and native bees that cherish this early nectar source. Mertensia is an ephemeral, meaning it disappears in the landscape as warmer weather approaches in early summer. Rest assured it will be back next spring as long as it you plant it in moist woodland areas where it thrives and spreads. #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Tiny, evergreen, blue-green succulent leaves form a spreading rosette that creeps and covers ground while looking good all season and providing the perfect backdrop for short spikes that rise above the leaves in early July and cover themselves with starry white flowers with contrasting purple anthers. It’s a tremendous show that even the native insects and butterflies appreciate! Plant this stonecrop in groups in a rock garden or any small, difficult spot and watch it shine!

Spectacular, 2" long, tubular flowers open in June showing a yellow interior that flares to a star at the end while the exterior is deep red, providing a unique, two-toned look that will light up your shade garden. Spigelia likes well-drained soil but is just at home in moist, organic soils and will provide a flower show each year that will be enhanced by colorful hummingbirds seeking nectar.

SENECIO ❂◗ ❍ Native Mature: 6-8"t. x 18-24"w. ZONE 3. Aggressive growing and tough, this plant has a tender side that shows itself in early to midspring with an explosion of color that will shine like a spotlight in shady spots. Deep green foliage remains semi-evergreen in many spots and spreads thickly to form a ground covering mat. Early spring sees long stems extend above the foliage and burst into color in mid-April with an irresistible force of golden daisy-like flowers that is breathtaking. After bloom ends later in May, Senecio becomes a very dependable foliage groundcover that thrives in moist soils. It loves to fill empty holes in the landscape so give it room and rest assured that it will provide year round cover for many small native landscape critters.

Carolina Lupine rises from the ground each spring on stiff, strong, very upright stems that grow quickly while unfurling big, grey-green, trifoliate, pea-like foliage, ultimately producing a nearly woody upright shrub. As spring turns to summer, each stem is topped by a tower of buds that open in July revealing a long string of large, Lupine-like hooded flowers of searing yellow that jump out at you against its grey-green foliage background. What an amazing show of color that will be enjoyed by you and by local butterflies and bees. As flowers fade in late July, sizable hairy seed pods develop that songbirds visit often.

ZONE 4.

This aggressive, easy to grow native loves to take up space in the landscape. While this might sound ominous to some, it really is a good thing because Spiderwort is one of those plants that fills a void in the landscape where other plants fear to tread. It’s a real survivor that will tolerate wet or dry, partial shade or full sun and not the best soil types and still perform like a champ. Spiderwort forms a loose mound of deep, blue-green, wide, grass-like foliage that is folded lengthwise and gives rise to a profusion of blue, 3 petaled flowers from mid-May through midJuly. It’s a perfect plant for rain gardens, borders, roadsides or open woodland gardens! Plant it in groups to great effect or let it naturalize in those troublesome areas that normally take on rain damage and enjoy the long bloom along with the native insects that like to visit, too! #1 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

virginicum CULVER’S ROOT ZONE 4.

It is so hard to find this woodland beauty in cultivation, but it is one of the gems of the shade garden and prized for its unique look. Native to moist understory areas, Trillium emerges from the soil in the spring looking like no other plant with large, deep green spade-like foliage sitting on top of a 6-8" high fleshy stem in a single 3 leaf whorl. Adding to its uniqueness is its flower that emerges in the center of the leaf whorl in May. Its flower is large, showy and fragrant with outward facing blossoms of chocolate-red to reddish-purple, although they are occasionally white, and they continue to bloom into June. There is nothing like it and, if you plant a group, you’ll find it will slowly spread and form a colony. Given its ephemeral nature, as the summer heat appears, this Trillium will disappear and go dormant until the following spring. Trillium loves shade and will tolerate moist soils... try some in your shade garden for a totally different native show! Quart size pot - sold by the flat only (8 plants/flat) . . . . . ABFPTRLERQT

There are not many places you will find this plant at the garden center, yet it is native in every lower 48 states except Maine and California. Nature can’t be too wrong about this plant, as it is one of the ideal summer blooming meadow plants that you can find. Tall, growing with deep green, fuzzy feeling foliage, this selection becomes a rounded bush by mid-summer that tops itself with long, pipe cleaner-like spikes with whorls of flower buds. These buds begin to bloom in early July, revealing pinkish-lavender flowers that start at the bottom of the flower spike first and work their way up as the next 4 to 6 weeks progress. The butterflies love the constant summer color and will visit often for a nectar treat from a plant that is tolerant of poor soil, hot sun and drought.

CAREX

PANICUM

appalachica APPALACHIAN SEDGE

virgatum ‘Northwind’ NORTHWIND SWITCHGRASS

If you are looking for a real texture contrast and a plant that will thrive in partial to full shade, Appalachian Sedge may be the answer. All sedges love shade but many are much stiffer and with wider bladed foliage than appalachica. Its foliage is very thin, long, and wispy, creating a much lighter texture and a flowing, almost mop-like look that is very attractive. This American Beauties sedge does not have the showy bloom that other Carex display but its somewhat insignificant bloom still provides nectar for important native insects and seed for native birds, while its flowing form is sure to add luster to any woodland setting in your landscape.

Native Mature: 5-6't. x 18-24"w. ZONE 4. Make a strong landscape statement with this tall, easy to grow, narrow, upright, wide bladed grass that is bound to be noticed wherever you plant it. Dark, olive-green foliage with just a hint of powdery blue add to this plant’s mystique as does its ability to thrive in so many soils from poor, sandy, droughty ones to moist, well-drained fertile ones. It makes a stunning display in groups and looks even better in summer as stalks form and hold showy, upright flower panicles above the foliage for all to see, including colorful birds who look forward to the ample seed this selection provides.

Grow in full sun and you will be harvesting your first cucumber by July and looking for friends to share the wealth with soon after! 6" pots - sold by flats only (6 pots/flat) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

EGGPLANT ‘Purple Blaze’ NEW 4" neon purple fruit is streaked with white stripes that decorate these nearly round fruits that look almost too good to eat! Fight the urge to just admire their beauty and dig right in because ‘Purple Blaze’ is an excellent selection for cooking with its tender, flavorful white interior. Not only that, it’s a heavy producer while remaining a compact 20" in size making it an excellent selection for container gardening. While they will grow larger than 4" when left on the vine, harvest your eggplants when smaller to ensure a tender fruit and frequent picking will encourage more fruits to develop. Unfortunately, insects love eggplant as much as we do, so consider planting them with a row cover to keep the insects out... the plants will love the extra heat it provides, too! 6" pots - sold by flats only (6 pots/flat) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Jersey Knight Asparagus is an improved, vigorous hybrid that grows only male plants, meaning more energy goes towards growing plants and less to maturing seeds. This heavy producer yields 3 to 4 times more tender stalks then other varieties and is highly disease resistant. Asparagus is the earliest vegetable harvested fresh from the garden each spring. It is known for its flavor and nutrition, is an excellent source of vitamin A and contains significant amounts of vitamin C, riboflavin, phosphorus and calcium. One cup of cooked fresh asparagus contains only 30 calories! ‘Jersey Knight’ is a perennial plant that comes back from the same root system each year. A productive bed of asparagus can last 15 years or longer. It needs well-drained, deep soil and plenty of sunlight. Make sure you fight the urge to harvest too much of the delectable shoots of ‘Jersey Knight’ in the first year or two in the ground... let it get established so you can harvest more in the future! #2 container . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Cucumbers are one of the easiest vegetables to grow and ‘Bush Champion’ is a Burpee® favorite because of amazing productiveness from such a compact plant. The big plus of this selection is that it takes up only 1/3 of the space of traditional vining cucumbers and produces just as many huge 11" long, bright green slicing cukes that are loaded with great flavor! As much as you love ’em, you might find yourself handing off some fruit to family and neighbors... that’s how productive ‘Bush Champion’ will be for you! It’s also disease resistant, assuring you that you won’t be disappointed waiting for the first of those luscious, sweet slicers to appear.

‘Sweet Burpless’ Hybrid

‘Jersey Knight’ JERSEY KNIGHT ASPARAGUS

Goodness Grows NEW

This Burpee® selection is known for fast, early to produce, tasty harvests and, just like with the tomatoes you grow in your garden, a fresh from the garden broccoli head makes the taste of store bought seem like a crime! Not all broccoli varieties are created equal and ‘Flash’ is one that stands above the crowd with great heat resistance to bolting and great disease tolerance to go along with its distinct, almost nutty taste. ‘Flash’ stays compact at 2' tall and takes 50 days from transplant to harvest to produce its bounty. Once you cut your first head don’t be too quick to pull up the plant. In a matter of weeks side shoots will form smaller, but just as tasty heads. Pick, steam and enjoy with melted butter and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

‘Great Stuff’ Hybrid

SQUASH

NEW If size is important to you, this colossal stuffer from Burpee® stretches the measuring tape to 7" long and 5" wide at maturity when it ripens from green to dark red. You’d think with fruit this large that a single plant could only squeeze out a few, but that is far from the truth. ‘Great Stuff’ is great at producing great numbers of great sized peppers along with being great in the disease resistance category. Bring this kind of easy care greatness to your garden. With fruit this size they will take awhile to mature at 75 days from transplanting into the garden, but they are worth the wait and are worth bragging about!

‘Burpee Hybrid’ Zucchini NEW

‘Hot Lemon’

Why wait deep into the summer for the great tasting zucchini you crave when this Burpee® selection can accommodate your cravings far earlier. You’ll be picking these sweet, tender 6 to 8" long beauties within 50 days of seeding!! And don’t think of this as a one and done early crop that is going to rapidly peter out... the compact, bushy plants of this selection are highly productive over the whole summer and they do it all on a bush that is far smaller that the usual sprawling, space eating zucchini plant. It’s a good thing this never ending supply of squash has so many uses, from fresh salads to cooking or stuffing to just gifting them to everyone on your block as the harvest keeps on rolling in!

This heirloom from Ecuador has been a HOT favorite for generations with a spicy aroma and unique flavor that makes it indispensible for fresh eating, use in sauces or for drying. ‘Hot Lemon’ boasts 3 to 4-inch fruits that ripen to yellow with a spiciness and heat similar to cayenne peppers but with a unique flavor and much more tender skin. Some say there is a hint of pine in the aroma adding to its unique flavor. If you are worried about the heat level and are not gastronomically daring, try picking them green as the heat level will be lower (you wimp!). Plant ‘Hot Lemon’ in full sun with plenty of water and, as with most veggies, constant picking will encourage your plants to produce more! 6" pots - sold by flats only (6 pots/flat) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

When pepper experts talk about hot peppers they talk about heat level in scoval units which translates to the the amount of capsaicin in the pepper. The hottest pepper around is the Habanero which has 40 times the amount of capsaicin as the typical jalapeño pepper. Since the Habanero is so hot, not many have screwed up the courage to try its fiery flavor. ‘Zavory’ hot pepper lets you enjoy the great flavor of the Habanero and live to tell about it! Brilliant red peppers are super shiny and are produced in great numbers in late summer. To encourage more fruit, harvest these tasty peppers as soon as they ripen... that will be easy given all the ‘Zavory’ summer dishes that will get a kick out of this user friendly Burpee® selection.
