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.

Rodgersia podophylla ''Rotlaub' (redleaf)' ()

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Rotlaub' means 'Red Leaf' This is an extremely colorful variety. The glossy foliage is a distinctive coppery-red to deep bronze and holds its color much better in the summer than other varieties. The jagged edged leaves mature to a spectacular deep red-bronze in late summer providing a backdrop for the dramatic 3 to 5 foot plumes of creamy-white flowers. Since they require consistent moisture, they can also be used in bog and water gardens. A wonderful woodland plant that prefers shade and does well planted close to trees or shrubs in cool soil. Makes a great planting companion for the variegated round leaf foliage of many Hostas.

Sedum 'Firecracker' SUNSPARKLER� Series ()

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

For a rich blanket of color in those hot, sunny areas, try Sedum �Firecracker� from breeder Chris Hansen who also brought us �Dazzleberry� and �Lime Zinger�. This is Chris� improvement over his previous red-foliage introduction, �Cherry Tart�. You will be amazed by the foliage bud count on each dormant plug; it is a very dense growing, well-branched selection that won�t split open in summer. It puts on a strong show of burgundy red color all season long, with only the tiniest new leaves emerging mint green. Plant �Firecracker� en masse in the landscape as a colorful, weed-suppressing ground cover and enjoy its vibrant pink flowers in late summer to early fall as an added bonus.

Trollius x cultorum 'Cheddar' (Globeflower)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Supposedly more vigorous than 'Alabaster', this cool and stylish plant is great for that moist spot. Pale yellow petals form a double row with darker yellow obvious stamens. And again, while they like moisture, I really have experienced this guy to be a workhorse. I grow it in shade where it will bloom not as abundant as in full sun, but it does bloom. And I've grown it in dry gardens, and full sun with good results. I do cut it back when it is done blooming and as yet, have not had a second flush of bloom as I do with the Trollius europaeus varieties.

Combine with fancy daffodil, or one of the shorter hardy blue grasses.

Viola 'Etain' (Violet)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Good in containers. Throats of flowers are purple-yellow and pretty spectacular. May not come back each year, but it's still worth it, as so many of our customers say each year. We typically sell out so early in the season. Combine with Thymus 'Highland Cream', Trollius pumilus, Bergenia 'Solar Flare'.

A rare and elegant viola! This beautiful English hybrid has extra large 1.75 inch wide, pale lemon yellow blossoms with contrasting lavender-purple margins and a delightful fragrance. Though it blooms the heaviest from late spring to early summer, it will continue to send up flowers sporadically throughout the summer and into fall. 'Etain' is a clump-forming type, unlike many other violets which are groundcovers.
