Miscanthus sinensis 'Cabaret'

Grass, Maiden
Super-bold variegation is the highlight of Cabaret Miscanthus. Each 1.25-inch- wide leaf is marked with deep green borders and a white center, the opposite variegation of its kissing cousin, Cosmopolitan Miscanthus. Because of the lively coloring and eight-foot height, Miscanthus sinensis var. condensatus 'Cabaret' makes an impressive specimen that is well worth the space it needs in the landscape. In early fall, pink blooms rise one foot above foliage for an impressive fall display. Cabaret Miscanthus was introduced in the mid-70s by the US National Arboretum.

Monarda x didyma 'Leading Lady Lilac'

Bee Balm
PROVEN WINNER. Bee Balm typically bloom in midsummer, but ‘Leading Lady Lilac’ leads the way in early summer, flowering earlier and forming a more petite clump than other Bee Balm (like ‘Pardon My Purple’). She typically blooms from early summer (first week of June in Michigan) into midsummer and grows just a foot tall. Her densely branched, dark green, somewhat glossy foliage is topped with light lilac purple blossoms coddled by purple bracts. A fine mist of dark purple spots appears on the open petals. After the first flush of flowers is passing full bloom, a secondary flush blooms above the initial flowers, extending the color show into midsummer. ‘Leading Lady Lilac’ behaves like a lady in the garden—she stays where you plant her and doesn’t run around. Her blossoms’ sweet nectar is highly attractive to butterflies, hummingbirds, and honeybees and her aromatic foliage is naturally deer resistant.

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.
Nepeta 'Early Bird'

Nepeta faassenii 'Purrsian Blue'

Catmint

In year two, the plant maintains its compact mounding habit but nearly doubles its spread to just over two feet across. This is a very floriferous selection whose flower power is amplified by its having its flowers spaced closely together on the stems. Periwinkle blue flowers are coddled by dark purple calyxes just above the aromatic foliage from early summer into early fall. 'Purrisan Blue' has everything today's gardeners are looking for: a low maintenance, drought tolerant, deer resistant, long blooming perennial that looks great all season. When Nepeta's stems are broken, they release an aroma into the air that tends to attract cats, thus its common name, Catmint.
Nepeta faassenii 'Purrsian Blue'

Nepeta x faassenii 'Blue Wonder'

Nepeta x faassenii 'Blue Wonder'

Nepeta x faassenii 'Cat's Meow'

Catmint
Unlike most Nepetas that have a bit of a wild, unkempt look, this first class selection keeps its tidy, dense, rounded shape all season long. Its small, grey-green, aromatic leaves are topped with well-branched stems carrying spikes of sky blue flowers with purple calyxes from early summer into early fall. ‘Cat’s Meow’ has everything today’s gardeners are looking for: a low maintenance, drought tolerant, deer resistant, long blooming perennial that looks great all season.
