Sun Perennials

This group of perennials requires a minimum of 5-6 hours sunshine per day to look their best.

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

Agastache (Hummingbird Mint)

Agastache, also known as Hummingbird Mint, is the perfect choice for hot, dry, sunny climates. Properly sited plants tolerate winter better, which is especially important for colder zones. Well-drained soil is a must, especially in winter. Will not tolerate heavy clay or overly rich soils. Leave stems over winter, then cut back hard in mid-spring. Drought tolerant, deer resistant, and attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.

>Agastache Varieties

Baptisia (False Indigo)

Baptisia, also known as False Indigo, has attractive blue-green foliage and ornamental seed pods. Wonderful vertical blooms. Mature plants form full, substantial clumps for perennial borders, cottage gardens, or to mingle with native plants in a meadow or prairie type planting.

Baptisia are drought tolerant when established, deer resistant, and attract butterflies. We enjoy them planted with Peonies, since they both bloom in late spring to early summer. These deep-rooted plants are long-lived to provide beauty for many years.

>Baptisia Varieties

Echinacea (Coneflower)

Colorful and very popular, Echinacea, also known as Coneflower, 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.

Echinacea are excellent for a flower border or native-type planting and are wonderful companions for grasses, other summer bloomers such as Daylilies and Hydrangeas. They are outstanding in bouquets, providing long lasting cut flowers. We offer for sale a wide variety of flower forms and colors.

Echinacea are easy to grow and care for. Deadhead to encourage rebloom, but toward the end of the season leave a few of the prominent seedheads on the strong 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

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

Schizachyrium (Little Bluestem)

Schizachyrium, also known as Little Bluestem, forms graceful clumps that turn gorgeous mauve to purple to copper tones in fall. Summer blooms mature to silvery seed heads that shine in the low autumn sun. Excellent for a sunny mixed border, with other native prairie plants, or in mass with other grasses. Drought resistant.

>Schizachyrium 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.

>Sedum Varieties

Attract Butterflies or Hummingbirds

Winged visitors add magic to the garden! Attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators with colorful, nectar rich blossoms. For further appeal, leave an area of the garden undisturbed to provide shelter and add a bird bath or create a few puddles for water. Avoid chemical sprays. Plant early, mid, and late season bloomers to provide a long season of nectar. Include plants that provide fruit or seedheads for birds.

>Attract Butterflies or Hummingbirds Varieties

Best Sellers 2016

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.

>Best Seller 2016 Varieties

Container Planting

Choose a plant that is adaptable to a container. Generally most plants with a moderate to small root system will grow in a pot, some larger growing specimens, such as shade trees, large shrubs, and deep-rooted large perennials are best planted in the ground. We have many noted for "container planting" among our selections.

>Container Planting Varieties

Good for Cut Flowers

Enjoy fresh cut blooms right from the garden! Experiment and have fun: store-bought blooms need to withstand storage and shipping, but home gardeners can use almost any flower for bouquets.

>Cut Flower Varieties

Deer Resistant

Deer generally avoid scented, fuzzy, and tough to chew plants, but there are also many other plants that they pass by. Although deer can be unpredictable, we have compiled this list of plants that they usually ignore. For a region specific list, check with your local university extension service, they often provide information about deer resistant plants.

>Deer Resistant Varieties

Drought Tolerant

Save time and water with drought tolerant choices. Drought tolerant plants are especially appreciated growing along the outer edges of a garden, beyond the easy reach of a hose. Drought tolerant plants sometimes do need watering when newly planted or during periods of extreme drought, but overall, they need less watering than typical plants.

>Drought Tolerant Varieties

Fall Color

Plan ahead for great fall color! Leaves that turn bright colors, colorful fruit, and interesting seedheads all add interest to the garden. We have many great choices to ensure a strong finish to the season!

>Fall Color Varieties

Fragrance

Fragrance completes a garden, and makes it all the more memorable! We offer a wide variety of scented plants so you can have fragrance all season long, in sunny and shady sites. Plant near a sitting area or walkway to fully enjoy their lovely scent.

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

Siberian Iris have gorgeous blooms in late spring to early summer. Elegant yet versatile blooms are perfect for refined settings, mixed borders, and cottage gardens. Slender, graceful, upright foliage is an asset all summer long, then turns golden to rust in fall for a beautiful finish to the season.

How to Grow Siberian Iris

Siberian Iris are easy to grow in most garden soils, but do best in a rich, organic soil with a mildly acidic pH of 6.0-7.0. They prefer ample moisture in spring and 1" of water per week during the rest of the growing season, however they do tolerate summer drought. In their northern range, give them at least 6 hours of sun per day, in hotter, southern sites they can benefit from filtered shade at mid-day. Siberian Iris are deer resistant.
