Dicentra spectabilis ''Valentine'' ()

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

A new spin on an old favorite! If you love the classic look of Old Fashioned Bleeding Hearts but are looking for an updated color palette, try this new red flowering selection. Much like the species, this variety also grows quickly to form a robust clump of deep green foliage topped with arching flower stems in late spring. When the foliage is emerging in spring, it has a tinge of pretty purple color to it. The flower stems on this variety are deep red and the large, puffy heart-shaped flowers are bright red with a white tip. They dangle romantically from the leafless stems over a period of many weeks. The plant remains attractive after it is finished blooming until it goes summer dormant. Bleeding Hearts are one of the oldest but still irreplaceable perennials in cultivation. They form large, bushy clumps of powdery-green foliage comprised of cut or lobed leaves on fleshy stems. In late spring, chains of puffy heart-shaped flowers dangle beneath the arching, leafless stems. These racemes make delightful additions to fresh bouquets, lasting about 2 weeks in a vase. In cooler climates with adequate moisture, the bloom time may be extended into early summer. After putting on this fantastic display, Old-Fashioned Bleeding Hearts usually go dormant until the following spring. However, if plants are kept well-watered during the spring, dormancy may be delayed until late summer or early fall. Other bushy perennials such as Hosta, Geranium, or Sedge should be planted nearby to fill in the resulting gaps.

Echinops bannaticus 'Blue Glow' (Globe Thistle)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

A member of the Aster family, Echinops is a clumping perennial that is very easy to grow but not invasive. Beginning in early summer, intense blue spheres measuring 1.5" across appear on tall, unbranched stems. Bumblebees and nocturnal moths delight in their sweet nectar. This variety is very similar to E.ritro with leaves that are more deeply divided and hairy. Salt tolerant

These distinctive flowers rise above the showy silvery green foliage. Though they look prickly, they are not as rough to the touch as you might expect. Echinops makes a great cut flower or dried everlasting. They add a unique element to any arrangement and are becoming more popular with florists every year.

Eryngium planum 'Blue Glitter' (Sea Holly)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

In our gardens, we have Eryngium planted in a very out-of-the way place yet it gets seen and raved about time and again. It looks as if it would be difficult to grow but it definitely is not. It's terrific for drying, too. 'Blue Glitter' has a shorter crop time than others, a much higher yield of smaller flowers and brighter, shimmering blue color in an unusual height. We also are offering the regular Eryngium 'Sapphire Blue' with a height of 24-30 inches.

Combine with Veronica 'Waterperry Blue', Primula florindae, Doronicum, Penstemon 'Prairie Dusk'.

Gaillardia aristata 'Arizona Red Shades' (Blanket Flower)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Like a pin wheel, these daisy-like flowers have a center of deep burgundy-red, and the petals are red with just a tinge of yellow at the outside edges. Gaillardia can be a challenge to overwinter in our short summers. They bloom right until freeze up and don?t get ?ready? for winter. In late summer cut the plant down to about 6 inches to encourage new basil growth hopefully to help overwinter. This particular gaillardia is advertised to be hardy to zone 2. Hmmm Priced to experiment.

Galium odoratum (Sweet Woodruff)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Not to be confused with our native Galium boreale (bedstraw), Galium odoratum (Asperula) is a wonderful ground cover with glossy fan-shaped green foliage. The dainty, star-shaped white flowers are sweetly scented. Prefers moist, well-drained soil. Will take partial shade or full sun. Will dry and retain the sweet hay fragrance. A great partner to our native Mertensia virginica (Virginia Bluebells).

Grow at the edge of your woodlands, around your benches, anywhere to enjoy the nice soft perfume. Timing is right to hide bulb foliage. Don't let this one dry out. Foliage will sulk. Photo courtesy of Walter's Gardens.

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.

Leucanthemella serotina (Shasta Alaska Daisy)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

'Alaska' is the classic Shasta Daisy and is the most common cultivar available. Huge 3 inch wide flowers are pure white with yellow centers and are borne on long 2-3 foot stems which are perfect for cutting. This is the hardiest strain of Shasta available. Shasta Daisies are all-time favorites for the perennial border. The cheery flowers begin to appear in early summer and continue on for several months if faithfully deadheaded. Shastas mix so effortlessly with other perennials that no garden should be without them!

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.
