Salvia 'Crystal Blue'

Salvia, Perennial
Salvia is a staple item for every sunny garden. It asks little more than sunshine and a little drink every once in a while in return for producing a bountiful mass of colorful flower spires from late spring into early summer. It forms a dense, rounded clump of aromatic, rugose grey-green foliage that looks nice all season long and is not enjoyed by rabbits or deer. ‘Crystal Blue’ Salvia is the first of its kind—an incredibly unique light sky blue (most perennial Salvias are darker purple), a cool shade perfectly fitting for a perennial that blooms relatively early in the season.

Schizachyrium (syn Andropogon) scoparium 'Carousel'

Schizachyrium (syn Andropogon) scoparium 'Prairie Blues'

Schizachyrium (syn Andropogon) scoparium 'Prairie Blues'

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.

Schizachyrium (syn Andropogon) 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.

Sedum 'Dazzleberry'

Stonecrop
This breakthrough new groundcover type Sedum forms a low growing, compact clump of smoky blue-grey foliage topped with giant 6-8”, vibrant raspberry colored flowers. The flower clusters are comparatively much larger than those of ‘Rosy Glow’ and ‘Sunset Cloud’. They completely cover the foliage from early August through September here in Michigan, making it one of the earliest of all fall blooming Sedum cultivars. This Sedum has fabulous color impact even from quite a distance and it provides color in the landscape for over 7 weeks. Low, spreading Sedums form a solid mat of foliage which is excellent for covering slopes or can be planted as a groundcover in sunny, dry areas. They are extremely drought tolerant and many are evergreen. These are terrific low-maintenance plants that always look their best. Sedum SUNSPARKLER® Series-- This colorful new series of Sedum comes from the breeding work of Chris Hansen. After several years of hybridizing and evaluating in his West Michigan field trials, Chris has selected only the best, most unique cultivars for introduction in his new SUNSPARKLER® series. His first three introductions are colorful groundcover types that were selected from over 4,000 seedlings. They all retain their attractive coloration from spring through fall and are free of the leaf scorch that can often plague Sedums. Their compact habit and unique foliage/flower combinations greatly broaden the range of groundcover type Sedums that are currently on the market. They can also be used in combination containers and green roof systems. Like all Sedums, they thrive on neglect and show their best colors when grown dry and in full sun.

Sedum 'Firecracker'

Sedum 'Frosted Fire'

Similar to AUTUMN CHARM™, ‘Frosted Fire’ is a variegated sport of ‘Autumn Fire’ rather than ‘Autumn Joy’. This plant shares the same brightly colored rosy flower heads, tighter growth habit, and thicker foliage as ‘Autumn Fire’. Light green leaves with creamy yellow, serrated margins form a dense, upright mound. Limited supply. Tall, upright sedums form substantial clumps of foliage which can be substituted for shrubs in the landscape. Their stout, sturdy stems support the massive flower heads which develop in summer and burst into bloom in fall. If left standing, they provide winter interest and food for birds.
Sedum 'Frosted Fire'

Sedum 'Lemonjade'

Stonecrop
Diversify your fall Sedum offerings with this unique yellow flowered selection. Unlike most autumn stonecrops which have pink flowers, ‘Lemonjade’ bears large 5-7” panicles of bright citron yellow flowers which completely cover the top of the foliage in early fall. As the cold weather sets in, the seed heads take on rosy peach tones. This is a compact selection with a stocky, upright mounded habit. It does not split open when it blooms like so many older Sedums do. Its grey-green, toothed foliage remains clean all season long. Tall, upright sedums form substantial clumps of foliage which can be substituted for shrubs in the landscape.

Sedum 'Lime Zinger'

Stonecrop
No other Sedum combines the colorful foliage display and groundcover type habit quite like ‘Lime Zinger’.

Sedum 'Mr. Goodbud'

Sedum 'Pure Joy'

Stonecrop
In the spring, very small, sharply serrated leaves emerge a cool shade of blue green, a color reminiscent of the lovely Sedum sieboldii. They formed a perfectly rounded, low mound that was perfect for edging the front of the border. As the plant aged through the season, the leaves expanded and turned lighter green, forming a short, semi-upright clump. When late summer and early fall arrived, we understood exactly why the breeder had selected this plant for its flowers. A massive dome of bubblegum pink, star-shaped flowers completely covered the foliage followed by deeper pink seed heads later in fall. This plant pairs perfectly with other fall bloomers like hardy garden mums, asters, and Black-Eyed Susans. Try a few in containers and at the front of the border.

Grass, Blue Indian
Steel blue foliage with hints of light green. Five-foot flower spikes topped with yellow flowers. Beautiful bronze fall color. With these attributes, Blue Indian Grass is one of the most attractive native grass cultivars. In addition, it is drought tolerant, tolerates poor soils, and requires little maintenance. This is a great choice for sustainable landscapes, natural areas, and modern designs that demand structured, yet restful, form and texture. Sorghastrum nutans 'Indian Steel' performs best in full sun. Rich soil and too much fertilizer will cause weak growth and flopping. Indian grasses attract songbirds and provide shelter for gamefowl. Blue Indian Grass is a seed selection of native Sorghastrum nutans.

Sorghastrum nutans 'Sioux Blue'

Grass, Blue Indian
This seedling of 'Osage' was selected by Rick Darke who saw great potential in its powder blue foliage and erect habit. This is a clump-forming grass that turns yellow in the fall, then fades to tan and remains standing through most of the winter. In late summer, copper brown flowers with conspicuous bright yellow pollen sacs attached are produced. They make wonderful cut and dried flowers. This heat tolerant, disease resistant, clumping forming grass is native to North American prairies.

Spodiopogon sibiricus

Grass, Frost
Spodiopogon sibiricus is a clumping ornamental grass known for its flowers that shimmer when backlit by the sun, a phenomenon caused by the tiny 'hairs' on its panicles. Slim, flat leaves grow upright and then extend horizontally, giving Frost Grass a unique, beautiful, curved structure. Green foliage turns a beautiful deep purple-burgundy in fall. As a specimen plant, in borders, or planted in masses, Spodiopogon sibiricus provides a clean, interesting look. It is great for areas with moist soil and light shade. - See more at: http://hoffmannursery.com/plants/spodiopogon-sibiricus/#sthash.XVeTRvVh.dpuf
