This is a striking Japanese style peony of exceptional beauty. The Peony 'Bowl of Beauty' grows to 32" high, with large, delicate flowers in May and June.

Paeonia lactiflora 'Cora Stubbs'

Peony
Combining showy flowers and delicious fruit, this everbearing strawberry can be grown as both an ornamental and edible perennial fruit. Unlike most strawberries, this one is very compact and produces few to no runners. That means it can be grown neatly in a container and provide delicious fruit all summer long. Hot magenta pink blossoms top the attractive dark green foliage while at the same time small bright red, highly aromatic, sugary sweet fruits are being produced. ‘Tristan’ will also happily grow and produce fruit all season when planted directly into the garden.

Panicum virgatum

Grass, Switch
Panicum virgatum

Panicum virgatum 'Cheyenne Sky'

Grass, Switch
Absolutely ideal for growing in decorative containers, this hardy Red Switch Grass is a perennial substitute for Pennisetum 'Rubrum'. Measuring in at just 3ft (2ft before blooming), 'Cheyenne Sky' forms a tight, vase-shaped clump of blue-green foliage that begins turning wine red in early summer. By late summer, nearly the entire clump is drenched in color and is topped by matching wine-red flower panicles held just above the foliage. It makes a dynamite specimen plant and is even more eye-catching when planted en masse.
Panicum virgatum 'Cheyenne Sky'

Panicum virgatum 'Dallas Blues'

Grass, Switch
Wide, blue, upright foliage. Large, purplish flower heads emerge late in summer. PP11202
Panicum virgatum 'Dallas Blues'

Panicum virgatum 'Dust Devil'

Grass, Switch
Neither rain nor wind will knock this solid grass down! ‘Dust Devil’ is a very durable grass that will grow well under less than ideal garden conditions. Standing just over 4 feet tall in full bloom, this grass is 1-2 feet shorter than comparable varieties such as ‘Northwind’ or ‘Heavy Metal’. Its blue-green to green foliage forms a strictly upright, dense clump. In the fall, the tips of the leaves are flushed with a hint of deep purplish red. Wine purple flower panicles are produced in late summer, blooming in the middle of the dense foliage and extending just about 6 inches above the clump. The flowers turn tan as they age.
Panicum virgatum 'Dust Devil'

Panicum virgatum 'Heavy Metal'

Grass, Switch

Panicum virgatum 'Rotstrahlbusch'

Grass, Switch
Upright green foliage is tinged with red all season, with red fall color. Bloom time is August through September. Seed heads are pink. Height with flowers is 48-56". Rotstrahlbusch is similar to Shenandoah with narrower leaves, more upright form and shorter height. Fall color is red vs. burgundy.

Grass, Switch
Panicum virgatum 'Shenandoah'

Panicum virgatum 'Thundercloud'

Grass, Switch
Looking for a large specimen plant for your landscape? Look no further! Even gardeners in chilly zone 4 can grow this native grass with ease. Panicum 'Thundercloud' PP20665 is a very large switch grass that grows to a height of 7-8ft when mature. Yet the blue-green foliage remains strictly upright and doesn't flop over in windy, rainy conditions. In late summer, a plethora of pinkish-tan, airy panicles are produced just above the foliage. This selection was hybridized by Gary Trucks of Amber Wave Gardens in West Michigan.
Panicum virgatum 'Thundercloud'

Grass, Fountain
Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Red Head'

Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Sky Rocket'

Grass, Fountain
A terrific companion to the temperennial grass Pennisetum s. ‘Fireworks’ PP18504, this green and white sport is a strong grower that exhibits stable variegation all season long. Green leaves with white striped margins form a beautiful vase-like clump topped with smoky pink, arching plumes that turn cream as they age. Since the plumes are sterile, the plant blooms from midsummer all the way into mid-fall. This tender grass is perfect for adding height and structure to combination container plantings. Like ‘Fireworks’, it should be grown as an annual in most parts of the country.
Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Sky Rocket'

Pennisetum orientale 'Karley Rose'

Grass, Oriental Fountain
A new Pennisetum with a big future. Abundant, 8-10" flower spikes start light lavender, mature dark purple, and dry to beige above a flowing mound of fine green foliage. Hardy to at least Zone 6. PP12909
Pennisetum orientale 'Karley Rose'

Pennisetum setaceum 'Fireworks'

Grass, Purple Fountain
The first-ever variegated Purple Fountain Grass! This striking cultivar was discovered and selected from a batch of P. ‘Rubrum’. The new leaves are longitudinally striped with white, green, and burgundy, lending a candy cane-like appearance to the foliage. In full sun, the green and white stripes become fully infused with hot pink, turning the entire clump into a glowing mass of hot pink and red foliage. Like ‘Rubrum’, large, reddish purple, arching bottlebrush plumes top the clump from midsummer to frost, turning tan as they age.
Pennisetum setaceum 'Fireworks'

Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum'

Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Longin'

Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Peek-a-Blue'

Russian Sage
Though we love Perovskia ‘Little Spire’ for its compact habit, it grows a bit tall for some who are looking for a shorter selection that works well in smaller urban gardens. We’ve been working for several years on developing a new Perovskia to fit that niche and now we have it! 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. In the landscape, they peek out between shorter plants in the front of the border and taller plants in the back.

Phlox paniculata 'Forever Pink'

Phlox paniculata 'Glamour Girl'

Phlox, Garden
Hot coral-pink flowers are held on dark purple stems. Even the oldest flowers in the panicles are a beautiful shade of light coral pink. ‘Glamour Girl’ maintains bright green, healthy looking foliage on strong stems all summer, putting on a flower show mid to late summer. Good resistance through hot, humid summers with ease, shaking off any sign of powdery mildew. Tall Garden Phlox grows best in rich, moist soil in full sun. It will thrive with bi-monthly fertilizing and consistent moisture levels. Overhead watering should be avoided since some varieties of phlox are susceptible to powdery mildew. This can be avoided or diminished by providing ample air circulation around the plants and by thinning them out periodically. Deadheading will prolong bloom time and prevent self-seeding.
Phlox paniculata 'Glamour Girl'

Phlox paniculata 'Shockwave'

Phlox, Garden
Thanks to our good friends at ItSaul Plants who introduced P. ‘David’s Lavender’, we now have a fabulous stable variegated sport to offer. The shocking variegated foliage of this new selection has incredible impulse appeal. It could certainly be grown for its foliage alone; the large clusters of lavender pink flowers with a white starburst center are a great bonus. From spring into early summer, the leaves are deep green with prominent, sunny yellow margins. As the season progresses, the margins lighten to creamy yellow. Use this plant to brighten up combination containers or mix with purple foliage plants like Sedum ‘Xenox’ for especially explosive contrast!
