Campanula garganica 'Dickson's Gold' (Bellflower)

Cerastium tomentosum 'Yo Yo' (Snow in Summer)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

I'm planting this one just because I smile when I say the name. But for the rest of you, 'Yo Yo' is very easy to grow in almost any soils. The small woolly gray/silver leaves form a low carpet smothering out most weeds. This new variety is a bit more restrained and compact than the species. The flowers are the absolutely whitest flower ever, almost luminous. Combine with spring bulbs, or for opposite foliage type, Ajuga 'Dixie Chip'. Or just use this beauty alone in a border.

One of the absolute best plants for bordering paths or edging gardens. Heavy bloomer with bright white flowers and silver, fern-like foliage makes grand mounds.

Dicentra 'Burning Hearts' (Bleeding Heart)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Totally different than the old fashioned bleeding hearts. For one thing it is very short and compact, allowing the heart flowers to peek out above the foliage. The foliage, almost blue and fern-like is another big difference. The best difference is it blooms all summer and into the fall. The romantic heart-shaped flowers are still the same only in a very dark red. WOW!

Combine with Anemone sylvestris, Ajuga 'Black Scallop' or any of the early spring bulbs.

Dicentra 'King of Hearts' (Bleeding Heart)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

I've had this one before but I really didn't appreciate it like I should. When I saw it in Sweden in late August, planted as a specimen, alone, it was totally awesome. The flowers extend beyond the foliage and bloom all season right into the fall. This very vigorous cultivar has unstoppable blooms first appearing bright red, then becoming paler as they mature.

Combine with daffodils, ferns hosta, Phlox 'Candy Stripes' or Saxifragas.

And yes, it does remind you of luscious pink candy. And yes, it makes a mountain of spiky flowers. The stunning rose-pink blooms sport speckled throats. Imagine a large drift of these beauties. Combine with Astilbe ?Deft Lace?, any of the pink lilium, or one of the spiky Nepata. What about that new short pink delphinium ?Summer Morning??

Digitalis purpurea 'Dalmation Peach' (Foxglove)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

This fast growing, first year flowering perennial foxglove received high scores in German trials. It ranked high due to its strong growth habit, floridity, and pure colored flowers. The flowers open a pretty shade of pinkish peach and then lighten to a soft peach color with tiny orange speckled throats. The basal foliage forms a compact clump and the plants are well-branched.

Digitalis forms large rosettes of downy, green, oblong leaves from which numerous flower spikes emerge. It looks especially nice when planted along fences, at the wood's edge, or in large containers.

Digitalis purpurea 'Sugar Plum' (Foxglove)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

This selection is described as a “bright pink version of ‘Pam’s Choice’”. Tall spires of pink flowers with heavily speckled, dark purple throats are produced in early summer. The flowers are closely spaced on the stems, resulting in strong color impact in the garden. 'Sugar Plum' forms large rosettes of downy green leaves. It is a biennial, meaning it lives for two years (only foliage the first year, blooming in its second year).

Digitalis looks especially nice when planted along fences, at the wood's edge, or in large containers.

Euphorbia polychroma 'Bonfire' (Spurge)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Something for all seasons. Start off with the deep purple, red and orange foliage in early spring, then comes the sulphur yellow brachts then back to dark reds in the fall. Oh yes, did I forget the chartreuse foliage just behind the brachts? How many colors are legal on one plant? Phenomenal with daffodils in the spring and what about that crazy Echinacea 'Coconut Lime' to really be outrageous. Moose resistant.

Gentiana cruciata 'Blue Cross' ()

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

This Gentian sets itself apart from the species by its intense blue violet flowers on compact, durable, drought resistant plants. From midsummer into early fall, clusters of small, 4-petaled flowers open and bloom at the nodes. At each node, the spoon-shaped leaves meet at angles to form a cross, thus the name Cross Gentian. This perennial looks great in rock gardens and also makes a nice cut flower.Intense blue violet flowers with a compact habit. Drought resistant. Very distinct and different flower opening at the nodes where the spoon-shaped leaves meet at angles to form the "cross". Combine with ferns, hosta, pulmonaria.

Magnify

A large group of excellent perennials in a wide color range. Some are clump forming where others are spreading types. Foliage is important for location choice. Larger foliage varieties need some shade, the varieties with the finely divided foliage can usually tolerate full sun. Purple Ghost features soft lavender flowers with dark veins. Contrasting dark foliage. Vigorous grower, highly mildew tolerant.

Iberis sempervirens 'Alexander White' (Candytuft)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

A blanket of pure white! Large clusters of flowers carpet the narrow, evergreen leaves from mid to late spring. This variety is fairly tall for the species and has the added bonus of a tendency to rebloom in the fall.

An old-time favorite, candytuft is a charming plant for perennial gardens. Because of its drought tolerance, it makes a great filler for crevices in walls or between the stones of walkways. It is also effective as edging or groundcover.

If you haven't seen this new one, you don't subscribe to any magazines! It's everywhere and there is a reason. Introduced by Walter's Gardens after their field trials showed the vase life of 'Banana Cream' is well over 2 weeks. The early 4-inch-wide lemon yellow bloom continues to brighten to light butter yellow and finally to creamy white. The extra row of ray petals creates a fuller appearance than the usual Shasta daisies. We've tried to keep this one affordable so everyone can enjoy it.
