Yarrow

A sparkling mix of citrus, yellow, red, purple and rose-pink blooms. Terrific for cut-flower mixes and cottage gardens. Drought tolerant and butterfly-friendly.

Salvia

The classic, standard mid blue. Extremely prolific, dense spikes with neat, light gray-green foliage. Place all around your garden where they’ll bloom all summer long. Start indoors 8 weeks before last spring frost. Shade tolerant.

Rudbeckia

Rudbeckia boasts more blooms than we have ever seen on a single specimen. Sturdy plants produce loads of branches, tightly lined with deep green leaves and topped with petal-packed 3″ blossoms in rich golden yellow.

Periwinkle

Exceptional color in the common periwinkle. Broad bands of golden yellow leaves are edged deep green, illuminating shady spots in the garden. Sky blue flowers dot the carpet from spring to fall. Best in part shade, sheltered from extreme heat and humidity.

Hosta

Lavender flowers, intense blue-green leaves are bordered in bright gold. Holds well in the garden right up to first frost.

Geraniums

The neat, thick, glossy leaves and loose, elegant flower heads are perfect for window boxes. This is the first ivy-leaved geranium from seed! It loves heat and humidity and is a base-branching, vigorous plant. Space geranium plants 12″ apart.

Fern

Well-appointed woodland gardens should reserve plenty of room for fancy fronds, and the Ostrich Fern is one of the all time best. Tall feathery plumes of green rise to 3 ft. producing large stands over time if grown in moist, humus-rich soils.

Daylily

With alluring blue-green foliage, 24″ tall plants begin their perennial color show in early-mid-season and go right on reblooming all summer. Prize-winning landscape plant is vigorous and adaptable; shows excellent sun tolerance.

Cone-Flower

Fancy flowers in hot pink bloom for 2-3 months. These gorgeous coneflowers are well branched with sturdy flower stems. Compact at only 24-28″ tall. Perfect for cutting. They thrive even in intense heat and humidity!
