Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' (Siberian Bugloss)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Silver heart-shaped leaves are attractive long after the wispy soft blue forget me not look flowers are gone. Mulch in fall. Combine with daffodils, Dicentra or Doronicum.

A sight to behold! The leaves of 'Jack Frost' are intricately detailed with a crackle-like finish. Though the leaves are dark green, they have a heavily frosted overlay which allows only the green veining to show through. From mid to late spring, baby blue, forget-me-not type blossoms are held in clusters several inches above the shimmering foliage. The effect is breathtaking.

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 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.

A bright twist on a classic perennial! Radiant yellow foliage absolutely glows in spring, creating a brilliant focal point in the shade garden.

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.

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'.

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.

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.

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.
