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
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.>Geum Varieties
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.>Phlox Varieties
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
