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'.

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!

Leucanthemum x superbum 'Banana Cream' (Shasta Daisy)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

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.

We've enjoyed the hardiness and vigorous growth of 'Little Plum' so we are very much looking forward to this new Lewisia. Flowers are a blend of yellow, orange and peach on upright stems. Floriferous, long bloomer stands up well to cold wet winter. Sounds like it was made for Alaska gardens. Maybe just the one for that rock garden spot.

Ligularia 'Little Rocket' (Ligularia)

If the regular Ligularia 'The Rocket' is too tall for you, here's the answer. Great foliage, tall slender spikes of hundreds of yellow daisy-like flowers are just like the big one.

Afternoon sun may cause leaves to wilt but they always perk back up in the morning. Combine with regular Ligularia 'The Rocket', ferns, Aconitum, Astilbe, Filipendula or Primula.

Lilium 'Fangio' (L.A. Hybrid Lily)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Plum-colored petals and darker stamens grab your eye wherever they bloom in your gardens. So many other perennials are complimented by this great lily. Dicentra eximia 'Luxuriant' blooms all summer and although the foliage and flowers are opposite the lily, they make a great combination. (Photos courtesy of Dr. Annie Nevaldine.)

Grow on dry side to avoid bulb rot. Push a couple of sticks of chalk in beside the bulbs each spring for a "timed-release" feed. Removing the orange center pistils will add bloom time.
