Achillea 'Appleblossom'

Yarrow
A cool, subtle-colored yarrow, 'Apple Blossom' is aptly named for its soft lilac-pink to pale rose flowers. They have the most intense color when they first emerge and then fade as they age, lending a unique multicolored effect to the clump. From early thru midsummer, tall flower stems are topped with flat heads of these brightly colored blossoms. This variety blooms about a week later than A. 'Moonshine'.

Achillea millefolium ''

Yarrow
Achillea millefolium, commonly called common yarrow, is a rhizomatous, spreading, upright to mat-forming perennial that is considered by many to be an aggressive weed. Common yarrow from Europe and Asia was originally introduced to America in colonial times, and has since naturalized throughout the U. S. primarily along roadsides, fields, waste areas and lawns. These species plants are noted for producing deeply-dissected, fern-like, aromatic, medium green foliage and tiny, long-lasting, white flowers that appear in dense, flattened, compound corymbs (to 2-4"across) throughout the summer on stems typically rising 2-3’ tall. Foliage has a strong, somewhat spicy aroma that persists when used in dried arrangements.

Onion, Ornamental
Allium giganteum, commonly called giant onion, is perhaps the tallest of the ornamental onions. It is a bulbous perennial (large bulbs to 2-3" diameter) which produces a basal rosette of grayish-green, strap-shaped leaves (to 18" long). From the center of each basal rosette rises a thick, naked, 3-4’ tall scape (stem) which is topped in late spring by a dense, globular, softball-sized, 5-6" diameter cluster (umbel) of tiny, star-shaped lilac-purple florets. Leaves and scapes smell like onions when bruised, but plant is not used for culinary purposes. Leaves begin to die back as plants begin flowering.

As the leaves begin to wither in mid-spring, stout flowering stems rise to 20-30" tall topped with huge, globular, deep lavender to silver-purple flower heads (terminal umbels to 6-10" in diameter) packed with individual star-shaped florets which collectively display a metallic sheen. Flowers appear in an impressive, long-lasting, spring bloom (May in St. Louis) in which new florets continue to develop as the original ones fade. Flower heads dry after bloom and remain ornamental in the garden well into summer. Flowers generally lack fragrance.

Asclepias purpurascens ''

Milkweed, Purple
Asclepias purpurascens, Purple Milkweed looks similar to Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca), but the flower color is a rich red purple color compared to the soft gray-pink of Common Milkweed. There are usually one to three blooms that form near the ends of the stems in late spring, early summer. The flower is held above the leaves on stems a bit longer then Common Milkweed’s and the umbel itself is stiff, and holds a nicely rounded form while that of Common will flop a bit. Blooms can last for about a month and if seed is not set it will occasionally re-bloom. The average height is around 3 feet but it will sometimes go to 4 feet. The flowers will attract a variety of nectar seeking insects from the very small to large Bumble Bees and of course Monarch Butterflies. The leaves are big, around 6-8 inches and they taper to a point at both ends. The mid-vein in the leaves is tinted with the same color as the flower. Grow Asclepias purpurascens in a site that is well drained but has ample moisture. It seems to prefer a bit of shade but will do well in full sun if it gets deep, regular watering. This Milkweed will not spread aggressively like the Common does. The seed pods are smooth and a little more slender than those of Common Milkweed which has plump pods with a prickly surface.
Asclepias purpurascens ''

Asclepias sullivantii ''

Milkweed, Sullivant'S
Similar to Common Milkweed but is less aggressive, has slightly smaller flowers, and an overall smooth appearance on the stem, leaves and seed pods. Visited by hummingbirds and a wide variety of bees and butterflies (including, of course, Monarchs), Prairie Milkweed is one of the plants favored by the larvae of the Milkweed Leaf-Miner fly, which bore holes in the leaves. Bears a very fragrant pink flower, Prairie Milkweed makes a nice addition to any sunny medium to medium-moist garden. After just a few years the taproot will extend very deep, protecting the plant in times of drought, but also making it difficult to move so choose your spot wisely.
Asclepias sullivantii ''

Asclepias syriaca ''

Milkweed, Common
This native classic is best known as a food of larval monarch butterflies (along with its siblings A. incarnata and A. tuberosa). Robust and stoloniferous with deep pink clusters of fragrant flowers in June and July, followed by lovely pods of silky seeds in October.Monarch butterflies lay their eggs exclusively on Milkweed plants, making them the sole food source for their larvae. Once found in abundance in nearly every farm field, ditch, and disturbed site, Common Milkweed numbers have been in dramatic decline in recent years, due in part to suburban development and the increased efficiency of herbicides used in conjunction with herbicide-tolerant, genetically modified row crops. Common Milkweed is one of the easiest and fastest to establish of the Milkweeds. The large flower can vary in the color range from nearly white to deep pink-purple. The fragrance is very delicate and pleasing and numerous native pollinators will benefit during its long bloom time.

Asclepias verticillata ''

Milkweed, Whorled
A widely adaptable and tough native is a deer-resistant food for larval butterflies. The fine-textured foliage provides a dark green backdrop for the clusters of white flowers that appear in June and July. Please note, Asclepias verticillata is highly toxic to livestock and horses - it should not be allowed to take root in pastures or hayfields. Found in dry fields, roadsides and shale barrens, you can see that it needs no coddling. Best located in a sunny dry spot, but will tolerate average to moist garden soil as well.
Asclepias verticillata ''

Asclepias viridis ''

Milkweed, Spider
Green Milkweed shares with other Asclepias species its milky, irritating sap and strong attractiveness to Monarch butterflies and a host of other insects. Very tolerant of dry conditions, it is also called Green Antelopehorn. Green Milkweed features rose-white flowers surrounded by green that form in showy umbellated clusters, often one per plant. Its beauty and tendency to spread slightly make it a good garden choice. White crab spider lives on this plant.

Aster (syn Symphyotrichum) 'KICKIN Carmine Red'

Aster
Their habit is superb, forming a very full, bushy, relatively short mound of finely textured green foliage. From late summer through mid-fall, every inch of the foliage is completely covered in flowers, creating a huge splash of color that is so needed in the garden late in the season. Due to their naturally compact habit, they are terrific in containers or near the front to middle of the border. They do not require any human intervention to maintain their neat habit and they have a long shelf life. KICKIN® 'Carmine Red' produces magenta red flowers with a gold button center. Asters are excellent cut flowers and attract butterflies. They make a terrific accent to fall blooming grasses and the changing colors of the trees. They are native to North America and are generally very easy to grow.

Totally unlike the tall and leggy Buddleia of the past, ‘Orchid Annie’ maintains a compact, refined habit. 8” orchid purple flower panicles appear above a perfect rounded shrub a few weeks sooner than you would expect for a Butterfly Bush. Although the best blooming power is in its initial bloom, this beauty will bloom on shorter secondary panicles well into early fall. The word “humdinger” is defined as “something that is very impressive or exciting.” That word definitely applies to this new collection of Buddleia! This collection features five new varieties of Butterfly Bush, each blooming a few weeks earlier than the members of the MONARCH® Collection. In addition to blooming starting in midsummer, each of these varieties has a compact habit and shorter stature.

Buddleia 'Princess Bride'

Butterfly Bush
This mid-sized Buddleia bears a multitude of strongly fragrant, pure bridal white flowers on large 8-10” panicles in late summer followed by slightly smaller secondary panicles which extend the show into early fall. The white flowers really pop against the backdrop of dark green foliage, darker than is typical for Buddleia. ‘Princess Bride’ is a densely compact, upright selection that is just slightly wider than it is tall. 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.

Buddleia 'Queen of Hearts'

Butterfly Bush
The vibrant magenta red flowers of this new selection are sure to capture the hearts of gardeners everywhere, and the butterflies and hummingbirds will love them too! Large 7-9” long panicles are produced from the top of the plant to the bottom, pointing upward and outward on all sides in late summer and early fall. Smaller secondary flowers extend the show. In addition to its heavy flower production, this plant is also quite short and compact, forming a full, rounded clump that is just a bit wider than it is tall. It is the perfect plant for adding a hot splash of color to the landscape late in the season. Butterfly Bushes have certainly earned their place in the garden over the years, and its easy to see why.

Buddleia 'Royal Falls'

Butterfly Bush
Like a royal waterfall, gorgeous amethyst purple flower panicles cascade out over the dark green foliage of this billowy Buddleia. It has a character all its own which is different from the more columnar types, a more natural yet refined look for the genus. The strongly fragrant, large 7-9” main panicles borne in late summer are followed by slightly smaller secondary panicles in early fall. This distinctively shaped new Buddleia would look beautiful planted pond side or where it could tumble down a rock ledge.

Coreopsis 'Daybreak'

Coreopsis (Tickseed)
A shower of cheerful bicolor blossoms with a prominent orange-red center and fringed, gold petal tips appear over an extremely long period, from early summer through early fall in the Midwest. Since the flowers are sterile, they just keep on coming all season long without the need for deadheading. It forms a compact, basal mound of highly disease resistant, dark green foliage. A midseason shearing will keep this plant looking its best all season. If you’ve been pleased with the performance of Big Bang™ Coreopsis like ‘Mercury Rising’, you might also like to try the Li'l Bang™ series from the same breeder, master hybridizer Darrell Probst. These naturally compact cultivars exhibit the same great disease resistance and long bloom time (commencing a bit earlier than the Big Bangs) but measure in at about half the height. They are the perfect size for container gardening, rock gardens, and the front of the border.

Cymbopogon citratus ''

Grass, Lemon
Lemongrass is a frost-tender clumping perennial grass that is popularly used as a lemony flavoring in Thai, Vietnamese, Laotian and Cambodian cooking and is widely cultivated in Southeast Asia for that purpose. It is also an outstanding ornamental grass that lends great beauty to garden areas regardless of whether its culinary uses are to be tapped. In the St. Louis area, it typically forms a dense rounded clump of foliage to 2-3’ (less frequently to 4’) tall and as wide in one growing season. Gracefully-arching, strap-shaped linear leaves (to 3’ long and to 1" wide) are light green. Leaves emit a lemony fragrance when bruised. It rarely produces flowers. Extracted plant oils have been used for many years in herbal medicines and perfumes.

A revolution in Heuchera genetics! You’ll be amazed at the unbelievable flower production of our new ‘Berry Timeless’. A myriad of light pink flowers which age to a deeper rose red are produced in tight wands on 18-20" scapes.

You’ll get a two toned look of light and dark pink flowers on the same plant for a strong show of color. Even better, this plant blooms and reblooms continuously, not in waves, from early summer to frost! You’ll have plenty of time to sell this plant in bloom if you're a retailer and loads of flowers to enjoy all summer if you're a gardener.

Coral bells are easy to grow and blend easily with most other perennials in the landscape. Because of their low, mounding habit, they are often used as edging along paths or in containers. Try cutting a few of the tall flower scapes for fresh bouquets.

Heucherella 'Pink Fizz'

Foamy Bells
A durable plant for sun or shade, this new Heucherella forms a full clump of large, deeply lobed, soft green leaves with a light silvering and heavy wine red to deep purple veining. It keeps its cool coloring and maintains its tight habit all season. Foliage is 8" tall, flower scapes reach 10-13" tall. From early through midsummer, pure pink flowers burst open from hot pink buds on scapes that bubble up above the leaves like strawberry soda pop. The flowers are closely spaced on the wands, giving a strong show of color just above the foliage. Heucherella is a hybrid genus produced from a cross between Heuchera and Tiarella which are both native to the United States.

Heucherella 'Solar Eclipse'

Heucherella x villosa 'Leap Frog'

Foamy Bells
This easy perennial is valued for its colorful foliage, year-long garden interest, and low maintenance needs. Heucherellas are mainly grown for their attractive foliage and ‘Leapfrog’ is no exception. Its new growth in spring is bright chartreuse yellow with a prominent broken pattern of burgundy pigment in the center of each leaf. As temperatures rise and the leaves mature, they grow larger and mellow to green with dark purple centers. In late spring, pure ivory, bottlebrush shaped flowers stand above the foliage on 24 inch tall scapes. ‘Leapfrog’ is a H. villosa hybrid which means that it is naturally more heat and humidity tolerant and also has greater vigor than Heucherellas without such parentage. It forms a very dense mound of interesting foliage that is evergreen in most climates. Heucherella is a hybrid genus produced from a cross between Heuchera and Tiarella.
Heucherella x villosa 'Leap Frog'

Hibiscus 'Berry Awesome'

Use it in place of a shrub in your garden.
Hibiscus 'Berry Awesome'

Hibiscus 'Berrylicious SUMMERIFIC'

Hibiscus, Hardy
Improvement over ‘Fantasia’ in flower and habit. Huge 8-9in, mauve lavender blossoms with a deep strawberry red eye have attractively ruffled, overlapping petals. They are produced on all sides of the dense, bushy, rounded clump of thick, bright green, maple-like leaves. This Hibiscus is a very floriferous indeterminate bloomer, so there are buds at many nodes up the stems rather than just at the tips. The result is a much longer season of bloom and flowers that cover all sides of the plant rather than just the top.
Hibiscus 'Berrylicious SUMMERIFIC'

Hibiscus 'Cherry Cheesecake'

Hibiscus, Hardy
Creamy pink, magenta kissed flower buds open to white flowers with magenta tipped petals and magenta veining radiating out from the cherry red eye. Huge 7-8” wide flowers have thick, heavily overlapping petals with a ruffled, rumpled texture that helps them hold up better in the summer wind than older selections with thin petals.

Each flower has a small, darker red halo with overlapping petals and deeply impressed veins. Flowers are produced from the top to the bottom of the plant, rather than only at the top like some older cultivars. Dark olive green leaves have copper highlights, with the newest leaves emerging coppery purple. The large, maple-like leaves are broadly smooth and form a full, billowy habit.
Hibiscus 'Mars Madness'

Hibiscus 'Midnight Marvel'

Hibiscus, Hardy
From 'Summer Storm' PP20443 it inherits very deep wine purple, dissected maple-like foliage that is thick and leathery. From a distance, it appears a bit darker purple than 'Summer Storm'. Like many perennials with purple foliage, this one needs to be exposed directly to UV light (grown in full sun) to achieve the darkest foliage color. From 'Cranberry Crush' PP21984, it inherits very similar glossy, black-red buds which open to 8-9", deep scarlet red flowers. The habit is relatively compact, measuring in at 4' tall x 4 ½' wide which is intermediate in size between its parents. Since this variety is an indeterminate bloomer (has buds at several nodes up the stem), it blooms for an extended period from midsummer into early fall. We have been incredibly impressed by the growth and performance of 'Midnight Marvel' and think you will be equally delighted!
Hibiscus 'Midnight Marvel'

Hibiscus 'Mocha Moon'

Hibiscus, Hardy
Huge 7-8", slightly cupped pure white flowers have a scarlet red eye that bleeds a little way onto the slightly ruffled, overlapping petals. Flowers are produced from the top to the bottom of the plant, rather than only at the top like some older cultivars.

The highly dissected, green leaves on nicely branched, red stems form a sizable clump in the landscape. 'Party Favor' PPAF is suitable en masse for the back of the border or planted singly as a focal point.
Hibiscus 'Party Favor'

Hibiscus 'Perfect Storm'

Hibiscus, Hardy
Gardeners loved the dark foliage of ‘Summer Storm’ Hibiscus, but it got too big for a small garden space. ‘Perfect Storm’ takes the dark foliage and shrinks it down to a manageable size (about half the height of ‘Summer Storm’). At 3 feet tall, it will still be the centerpiece of your sunny garden. This beauty demands a presence! ‘Perfect Storm’ has huge, 7-8" wide, white flowers with a bright red eye that radiates out the veins, with the petals edged with pink. Enjoy its blooms from late summer into early fall.
Hibiscus 'Perfect Storm'

Hibiscus 'Plum Fantasy'

Hibiscus, Hardy
Lipstick red buds open to very large 8-9”, vibrant magenta red flowers with a deeper red eye and red stamens. The texture of the flower petals is very unique compared to other Hibiscus—they are distinctly puckered and crinkled, giving them added dimension. This incredibly floriferous new Hibiscus sets buds at the top 6-7 nodes up the stems compared to the top 3-4 on average. The dramatic flower color really pops against the super dark green, maple-like foliage which takes on a tint of greyed purple late in the season. ‘Plum Fantasy’ forms an upright rounded clump in the landscape and makes a fantastic specimen plant for sunny landscapes.

Hibiscus 'Sultry Kiss'

Hibiscus 'Summer Storm SUMMERIFIC'

Hibiscus, Hardy
An improvement over 'Kopper King', this hybrid has the darkest wine purple, maple-like foliage we've ever seen on a hardy Hibiscus. As the foliage matures, the number of lobes on each leaf increases. The foliage alone makes this plant a fantastic specimen even before it comes into bloom! (Please note: Like many other purple foliage plants, this one requires direct exposure to UV light to develop the deep purple coloring. Plants coming from a greenhouse may be green until they are brought outside into the sun.) This plant produces large 8-10 inch, pink flowers with rose veining and a deep magenta eye that radiates out onto the petals. Free-flowering from mid-July to October. This is partially due to the fact that this Hibiscus has "indeterminate" buds v. "determinate" buds. Flower buds are produced at the nodes along much of the stem as well as at the tips. That means more flowers for a longer time period.
Hibiscus 'Summer Storm SUMMERIFIC'

Hibiscus 'Tie Dye'

The overlapping petals of ‘Vintage Wine’ have a crinkled texture and open completely with minimal cupping. Flowers are produced from the top to the bottom of the plant, rather than only at the top like some older cultivars. Dark green, heart-shaped leaves form a densely upright, columnar clump. Use this incredibly dense variety as a focal point in your sun garden. ‘Vintage Wine’ differs from ‘Cranberry Crush’ with the shape of its leaves, the tone of flower color (a warmer red), and the density of its plant habit.
Hibiscus 'Vintage Wine'

Hosta 'Prairie Moon'

Hosta
This medium sized hosta is revered by the breeder for its glowing yellow foliage that keeps its color all season long. Unlike many yellow hostas which either start out green in spring or turn green in summer, this one retains its yellow foliage from start to finish. In the springtime, it has thick, wedge-shaped, bright yellow leaves with lightly wavy margins, white backs, and petioles that are flecked with red spots at the base. As the season progresses, the yellow color mellows a bit but it remains distinctly yellow all season. Chartreuse scapes carry pale lavender, bell-shaped flowers on 19" scapes in late summer. Plant this hosta in part shade to draw out its yellow coloring. Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape.

Iris, Siberian

Typical of Siberian Irises, this selection also has narrow, green, disease resistant foliage that remains attractive all season. It is especially lovely when planted en masse around water features. Siberian irises are haled for their elegant, delicate flowers and disease resistance. They perform admirably in the sunny to partially shady garden, but need plenty of water throughout the season to continue looking their best. In naturalized settings, they are particularly effective around water features. They can also be grown under Black Walnut trees since they are not effected by juglone. Siberian Irises bloom before Japanese Irises but after Tall Bearded Irises.

Ligularia
This part-shade loving perennial has the same dark foliage that gardeners have long admired in ‘Britt-Marie Crawford’, but with leaves nearly twice as big at 16” across. The newest leaves are glossy and black-purple—as the summer progresses the leaves mellow to burgundy purple with a semi-glossy finish. Leaves are thick and leathery, with an undulating leaf edge. This vigorous plant comes in slightly taller than ‘Britt-Marie Crawford’ due to its larger leaves, topping around 3-3.5 feet in our trials. Golden orange, daisy-like flowers top the plant on purple stems in midsummer, extending the height of the plant to 4 feet. Like most slow-growing Ligularia, this plant will take a few growing seasons to reach its mature height. Leaves are greener in full shade—plant in a site with morning sun for best purple color.

Nepeta 'Early Bird'

The earliest blooming Nepeta we've had in our trials, with flowers starting in early April and lasting up to six weeks! Clean, gray-green, aromatic foliage and a compact habit make it an excellent groundcover. A low-growing member of the clan whose aromatic, gray-green leaves complement the lavender-blue blossoms. Its flowers gather in whorls on stems that reach just 12", and bloom is persistent up to six weeks. This compact, early-blooming variety makes an excellent ground cover for edging a sunny walkway. Most Nepetas are thrifty plants that prosper in average, well-drained soils, and the majority offer deliciously fragrant, gray-green foliage and numerous spikes of small flowers, generally in the blue to purple range. They are durable, hardy, and pest free. Like Catnip, the best-known member of the genus, Nepetas may send felines into a frenzy.

Introducing ‘Peek-a-Blue’, a short selection of P. atriplicifolia with a compact habit and attractive, finely dissected foliage. Very lacy, silvery green leaves line the silvery stems topped with lavender blue flowers from midsummer into early fall. The plants measure just over 2’ tall when they are in full bloom.

Schizachyrium scoparium 'Twilight Zone'

Grass, Little Bluestem
We are so excited to bring you this new Schizachyrium because it was a total standout in our trials. Though native Schizachyriums typically color up in fall, the new ‘Twilight Zone’ possesses a nearly iridescent silvery mauve purple cast all over the whole plant beginning in midsummer. It retains these eerily beautiful tones through fall when brighter purple highlights appear on the flower stems. The attractive foliage forms a strictly upright, narrowly columnar clump that is about half as wide as it is tall. This grass would be stunning in combination with silver foliage plants like Silver Mound Artemisia in a sunny, hot, dry spot in the landscape. Schizachyrium is a great choice if you are looking to restore an eroded site, or for a plant that will grow in hot, dry areas where other plants have a hard time surviving.

Schizachyrium (syn Andropogon) scoparium 'Smoke Signal'

Grass, Little Bluestem
This selection of our native Schizachyrium has a beautifully refined habit and puts forth a strong show of color in late summer and fall. The glaucous blue-green foliage begins to take on scarlet red tones in late summer, turning a deeper red-purple through the fall. Tiny, tan seed heads appear in early fall on the top half of the stems. An improvement over older cultivars, this grass maintains its strictly upright habit through fall. Schizachyrium is a great choice if you are looking to restore an eroded site, or for a plant that will grow in hot, dry areas where other plants have a hard time surviving.
