Veronica 'Enchanted Indigo'

Speedwell
This picture perfect perennial forms a fairly short, compact, full clump of bright green, somewhat glossy foliage topped with enchanting royal purple flower wands in early to midsummer. The foliage and flowers are nicely balanced, with the flowers comprising about half of the plant’s total height.

In our trials, we were impressed by the uniformity and consistency of habit on this new and improved Veronica.

Wisteria macrostachya 'blue Moon'

Wisteria, Kentucky
Wisteria macrostachya, sometimes commonly called Kentucky wisteria, is a deciduous vine that is native to the southcentral U. S., ranging from Louisiana and Texas north to Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri and Oklahoma. In Missouri it is primarily found in the southeastern Bootheel region in low swampy woods and along the borders of swamps, bayous and low streams (Steyermark). It is very similar in appearance to Wisteria frutescens, American wisteria, and was once designated as W. frutescens var. macrostachya. It is a less aggressive grower than some of the other wisterias, but is well noted for its excellent winter hardiness and ability to produce flowers in USDA Zones 3-4. ‘Blue Moon’ is a cultivar that grows to 15-25’ and features 6-12” long racemes of fragrant, pea-like, blue flowers that bloom in June with 1-2 additional flushes of bloom occurring in summer. Flowers bloom somewhat simultaneously on the racemes thus producing a dramatic floral display. Flowers give way to pendant, velvety, bean-like seed pods (4-5" long) which ripen in autumn and may persist into winter.

Yucca filamentosa 'Color Guard'

Adam'S Needle
Bright creamy-yellow leaves have green edges. During the cooler months of fall and winter, the light leaf centers take on rose overtones. From early to midsummer, spectacular sturdy flower stalks rise 3-4 feet tall from the center of the plant. The individual bell-shaped, creamy white flowers are 2-3 inches long and dangle from the stems. Tough as nails, yuccas are the ideal plant for a no-maintenance garden. Their sword-like foliage radiates upward from a central crown, remaining upright all year round except in the heaviest snows.Yuccas thrive in any type of well-drained soil including those that are very dry. Though they will grow in partial shade, they reach their full potential only if they receive sun all day long. Many yuccas do not bloom until they are mature. Once they start, though, you will see that they were worth the wait. The flower stalks retain some ornamental value after the blooms have faded. Mature plants sometimes develop plantlets near their base. These can be dug and transplanted elsewhere if desired.

Yucca filamentosa 'Excalibur'

Adam'S Needle
This Yucca forms a uniform, spiky, rounded clump of sword-like, blue-green to glaucous grey-green leaves lined with an extraordinary number of curly white filaments. Its habit is much more uniform and is overall smaller than the straight species. Impressively stout flower scapes carry white, bell-shaped flowers in early to midsummer.

Zizia aptera

Golden Alexanders
The thick, glossy semi-evergreen foliage looks a little like Lenten Rose and provides nice contrast to other native plants. Small yellow flowers in flat heads bloom May-June.
Zizia aptera

Zizia aurea

Golden Alexanders
Golden Alexander is a Missouri native perennial which occurs most often in small colonies in moist woods and meadows, thickets, glades and prairies. Features flat-topped clusters (compound umbels) of tiny yellow flowers in late spring atop stems growing to 3' tall. Distinguished from other carrot family members by the absence of a flower stalk on the central flower of each umbel. Both basal and stem leaves are compound biternate with toothed leaflets. The similar Zizia aptera has simple, heart-shaped basal leaves. Golden Alexanders is a food plant for the larvae of the Missouri woodland swallowtail butterfly (Papilio joanae). Similar to Z. aptera which has a heart shaped basal leaf and reddish stem.
