Other Criteria:

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.

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.

Geum (Geum, Avens)

Geum bloom in late spring with colorful flowers held on wiry stems above mounded clumps of handsome foliage. Blooms appear to be floating above the dense foliage, a very appealing effect. Grow Geum at the front of the border or along walkways or edge of a patio.

Iris sibirica (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.

Phlox (Phlox)

Tall Garden Phlox provide large, fragrant heads of tightly packed florets in mid to late summer in a wonderful range of colors. Some older varieties had trouble with powdery mildew on their foliage, especially in a warm, humid climate, however there are now many wonderful varieties with good resistance. To help the plants further resist mildew, plant in an area with good air circulation and organic soil; water deeply at the base of the plants during dry spells. Many new Phlox are available in a variety of sizes and colors that will always ensure a place in the garden for these longtime favorites.

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.

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.

New for 2019

Part of the fun of gardening is trying something new! We choose our new plants for both their beauty and their good growing traits.

>New for 2019 Varieties


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

Grasses for sunny spots add graceful form and texture. 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, 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.

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