Heliopsis helianthoides 'Sunstruck'

Sunflower, False
ariegated Heliopsis have long been popular in the perennial landscape, and ‘Sunstruck’ fills the spaces at a much shorter height. 2” large, golden yellow flowers appear above the cream and green variegated foliage even earlier than typical Heliopsis, and blooms all through summer until fall. Compared to ‘Loraine Sunshine’, ‘Sunstruck’ is more compact, has more ray florets and a deeper flower color.

Hemerocallis 'Endless Heart'

Daylily
A true breakthrough in daylily breeding, this is the first red, very early blooming, hardy daylily. In the ground, this daylily typically starts to bloom in mid-June which is several weeks earlier than most cultivars. Plants can rebloom up to 4 times per year, showing nearly 100 days of color in zone 6. EARLYBIRD CARDINAL Endless Heart produces 4" wide, watermelon red flowers with a pie crust edge and chartreuse throat. It is documented to produce 6 or more fans per season compared to 2-3 fans produced on an average daylily. It also tends to produce more than one flower scape per fan, so the plants quickly grow to form a highly floriferous, robust clump .Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot including: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).

Heuchera 'Appletini'

Coral Bells
Continuing the trend of bringing flower performance back to Coral Bells, ‘Appletini’ is the perfect combination of lime foliage and red flowers. Medium sized, lime green leaves have a silver overlay that makes the foliage truly attractive. Its best feature is arguably its stunning flower color: dark rose red stems hold rich ruby red flowers, starting in early summer. This plant occasionally reblooms into fall. The bright foliage is the perfect addition to a perennial combination container or the front of the border. Coral bells are easy to grow and blend easily with most other perennials in the landscape.
