Sun Perennials

Our sun-loving plants bring color, form and style to the garden. We offer the best of the new selections and old favorites. This group of perennials requires a minimum of 5-6 hours sunshine per day to look their best. As the amount of shade increases, flowering generally decreases, but in southern zones, plants will tolerate a little more shade.

We ship well-grown, established plants. Pot size is 2.06 quart/1.95 liter, unless otherwise noted.

Echinacea (Coneflower)

Colorful and very popular, Echinacea is a native perennial that has been wonderfully enriched with new introductions. They come in heights from short to tall, bloom forms in single to double, and in spectacular colors including pinks, reds, corals, yellows, and more. Their successions of freely produced flowers are a magnet for butterflies, and later their seeds are enjoyed by birds, however, deer generally leave them alone. Excellent for a flower border or native-type planting, Echinacea make wonderful companions for grasses, daylilies, and hydrangea. They are outstanding for bouquets, providing long lasting cut flowers. Easy to grow, with strong upright stems. Deadhead to encourage rebloom, but toward the end of the season leave a few of the prominent seedheads on the rigid stems to add interest to the winter garden. Echinacea prefer full sun to light shade and well-drained soil, but are adaptable to less than ideal conditions and will tolerate drought when established.

>Echinacea Varieties

Geranium (Cranesbill)

Hardy Geraniums have long been popular, easily grown versatile component of temperate gardens. Their numerous uses include herbaceous and mixed border plantings, containers and the outstanding ground cover potential of numerous low growing selections. Extremely floriferous over an extended period from early through late summer, the flowers exhibit a wide range of color and form. Of equal ornamental value and complimentary to the flowers is the variously colored and formed foliage. These indispensable sun lovers offer an ongoing interest and excitement that is ensured by a steady stream of worthy new introductions.

>Geranium Varieties

Monarda (Beebalm, Bergamot)

Although popular with generations of gardens, many older selections of our native Bee Balm or Bergamot are prone to unsightly foliage infections of Powdery Mildew. Modern breeding programs, especially several undertaken in Canada, have resulted in a number of outstanding new introductions displaying attractive disease resistant leaves. These new selections exhibit a range of growth forms; including a few outstanding dwarf varieties that greatly enhance flower forms in a range of bright, eyecatching color and attract butterflies. One of the easiest grown perennials especially in cooler summer climates provided one does not allow plants to dry out in summer. Precautions should also be taken to avoid excessive winter moisture which can easily cause rotting.

>Monarda Varieties

Papaver (Oriental Poppy)

Poppies are one of the showiest of all perennials during late spring and early summer. Huge crepe-like petalled flowers develop from wonderful, large, nodding, expectant-looking buds. Prominent velvety black-purple seed capsules surrounded by black stamens and bold black flares create a stunning focal point to each flower. Locate in an open sunny position and a well drained not overly rich soil. This flamboyant plant dominates any border planting. Poppy foliage goes dormant and fades away in summer. Plant with companions that will fill in or screen the gap. Resprouts a nice clump of foliage in the fall.

>Papaver Varieties

Phlox (Phlox)

Popular for over a hundred years, Tall Garden Phlox provide large, fragrant heads of tightly packed florets in mid to late summer in a wonderful range of colors. The foliage of some older varieties can be subject to powdery mildew, especially in a warm, humid climate. Although it is not fatal to the plant, it can look unsightly. Resistance to this problem has been the goal in selecting and introducing new varieties, so there are now many wonderful varieties with good resistance. To help the plants further resist problems, plant Phlox in an area with good air circulation and organically enriched soil; water deeply at the base of the plants during dry spells to prevent them from becoming stressed. Many new Phlox are available in a variety of sizes and colors that will always ensure a place in the garden for these classic, longtime favorites.

>Phlox Varieties

Sedum (Stonecrop)

Sedums, also known as Stonecrop, have interesting thick, succulent foliage, sturdy abundant blooms, and a variety of foliage colors. Drought tolerant when established, Sedums help to conserve water. Tough and easily grown, with a wide range of forms and colors, Sedums are a valuable addition to the garden. Their blooms attract butterflies and often mature into attractive seedheads to create fall and winter interest, and to provide winter food for birds. Well drained, sunny sites are ideal for Sedums. Smaller growing selections are wonderful additions to containers and troughs.

Best Sellers 2014

Most popular with our customers! It is always interesting to see what plants other enthusiastic gardeners choose most frequently. Some best sellers are new this year, some are returning favorites, but each has something special to offer in your garden.

Good for Cut Flowers

Cut blooms in the cool of the day. Do not cut more than one third of a plant's stems and foliage, leave plenty to nourish the plant for future growth. Re-cut stems at an angle just before putting in a vase. Make the fresh cuts under water for best water uptake. Change water in the vase frequently.

Experiment and have fun: store-bought blooms need to withstand storage and shipping, but home gardeners can use almost any flower for bouquets.

Bush Clematis

Non-climbing, herbaceous perennials that die down to the ground level in late fall. Bush Clematis generally have a mounded habit and bloom from midsummer into fall on the current season's growth. Flowers are frequently followed by attractive silky seedheads. Bush Clematis make excellent and interesting additions to a mixed or herbaceous border.

>Bush Clematis Varieties

Clematis Prune 3

This group blooms later and from new growth. This group should be pruned in February or March as new leaf buds begin to show low on the plant. All dead material above these buds should be removed at this time.

>Clematis Prune 3 Varieties

Grasses

Grasses are a versatile group with selections for sunny or shady areas.

Grasses for sunny spots add lovely arching forms to the flower and shrub border. They range in height from tall, back of the border plants to smaller varieties for the front edge of a planting. They can add fine linear texture, dramatic height, color that changes with the seasons, or decorative seedheads that sway in the slightest breeze. Many of the varieties we offer are selections of native grasses known for their beauty, toughness, and, when established, their drought tolerance. They complement each other when planted in groups, and also are wonderful with Echinacea, Salvia, Veronica, and other sun lovers.

Grasses for shady areas add a flowing, graceful touch to borders and containers. We offer choice varieties of the shade grass Hakonechloa, known as Japanese Forest Grass. Their slim, linear foliage looks great with the broad leaves of shade lovers such as Hosta and Heuchera. They add a finishing touch along the shady side of a shrub border, and look especially lovely growing near the base of Japanese Maples and Tree Peonies. They prefer a loamy, compost-enriched soil. In the northern parts of their range, provide them with mulch in winter.

Leave grasses in the garden for fall and winter interest, cut back in early spring to make room for new growth.

>Grass Varieties

Siberian Iris

These invaluable clump forming, long-lived perennials have both foliage and floral appeal. Slender, graceful upright leaves remain fresh and appealing throughout the gardening season forming an ideal backdrop from early to midsummer for the elegant, tall stemmed flowers. In addition to the traditional blue and rich purple flowers, more recent hybrids display a wide range of colors including whites, yellow, strawberry-pink and reddish tones with longer lasting flowers sometimes exhibiting a tendency for reblooming. Plant height varies with some dwarf selections especially valuable for smaller gardens. In moist well drained soil, strong growth can result in the development of a valuable ornamental groundcover. Plantings can create striking contrasts when associated with such rounded shrubs like early flowering Azaleas.
