This portion of the site provides a summary and description of plants introduced for the first time to the Bohn's Farm lineup for the current year. 

Introduction of new plants to our already extensive lineup is the result of:

  • customer suggestions
  • recommendations from our diverse team of young plant producers
  • pant awareness resulting from custom production for our landscape professional customer
  • observations noted during our travels to professional conferences, botanical and educational institutions.

Baptisia 'Stardust'

Indigo, False
This is a beautiful and bold Baptisia, whose claim to fame is its extremely long, 18" flower spikes that extend high above the full, wide clump of foliage. In early summer, flowers open lilac purple with pale yellow keels and lighten to dusty lavender purple. Flowers are more of a reddish hue than B. australis. This easy to grow, extremely long-lived perennial will make a large, eye-catching specimen in your garden. Baptisia is easy to grow and will thrive with little maintenance. There are many potential applications in the landscape including meadow plantings, as a backdrop in borders, or as a specimen. Plants are very long-lived once established.

Buddleia 'Lavender Cupcake'

Butterfly Bush
This sweet Buddleia will charm you with its extremely long, 12” light lavender purple flower panicles and a rounded, compact habit. Once in bloom as early as midsummer, this shrub will bloom like crazy with good flower coverage. Although the best blooming power is its initial bloom, secondary blooms will extend the flowering season into early fall.

Buddleia 'Little Angel'

Butterfly Bush
Although this Buddleia has a shorter stature, its extremely dense, compact habit demands your attention in the garden. Very long 10-12" pure white flower panicles appear above the gum drop-like habit a few weeks sooner than you would expect for a Butterfly Bush. Although the best blooming power is in its initial bloom in mid to late summer, secondary blooms will extend the flowering season. In the HUMDINGER Collection, a group of compact and earlier blooming Buddleias.

Buddleia 'Prince Charming'

Butterfly Bush
Part of the MONARCH collection, ‘Prince Charming’ is truly a color break for the Buddleia genus. 10" long flower spikes will stun you with their bright cerise pink color. Compared to ‘Queen of Hearts’, ‘Prince Charming’ is closer to raspberry pink than purple. In mid to late summer, its upright, gumdrop shaped habit is covered with intensely colored flowers and blooms for many weeks. Butterfly Bushes have certainly earned their place in the garden over the years, and its easy to see why. Just when we need a breath of fresh air in the late summer heat, they happily burst into bloom. At a time when many other plants are already spent, buddleias are just beginning their show. Their passive coloring and texture makes a wonderful backdrop for perennials, and you'll love the butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds that flock to their honey-scented blossoms.
