SEMPERVIVUM ‘Pacific Blue Ice’  (Hens & Chicks)

Aptly named, this selection is icy blue-green in color, becoming flushed with rose towards the center especially in cooler weather.  This elegant yet very hardy perennial has a unique cupped form and makes rounded rosettes.

  Sempervivum is comprised of one large rosette called the "hen" which sprouts many smaller rosettes around it called "chicks". As the plants age, the "hen" may die out and be replaced by the "chicks". Plants can be divided easily at any time by pulling up some of the "chicks" and replanting them elsewhere.

  This plant is particularly effective when planted in the cracks and crevices of stone walls or walkways. It is also very attractive in containers.

HELIOPSIS helianthoides ‘Sunstruck’  

Variegated Heliopsis have long been popular in the perennial landscape, and ‘Sunstruck’ fills the spaces at a much shorter height. 2” large golden yellow flowers appear above the cream and green variegated foliage even earlier than typical Heliopsis and blooms all through summer until fall.  ‘Sunstruck’ is more compact, has more ray florets and a deeper flower color. This is the perfect height for smaller spaces in the garden or for combination containers.

HELLEBORUS x ‘Pink Frost’   

Hellebore (Lenten Rose) ‘Pink Frost’ is an incredibly vigorous, heavily budded selection that blooms from late January into March. It produces burgundy buds which open to 2-3”, two-tone pink and white outward-facing flowers.  As the flowers age, their color deepens to burgundy. These beautiful blossoms are presented atop the upright clump of green, serrated foliage with a silvery sheen and red petioles. These plants also make a lovely presentation in containers.

HEMEROCALLIS ‘El Desperado’

This daylily displays 5" light mustard to butter yellow flowers with a striking wine purple eye and matching picotee edge half way up the crimped flower petals. The eye is notched at the midrib creating an interesting central pattern, and the throat is yellow-green.

The large tetraploid flowers have an extended bloom time lasting at least 16 hrs. each.

PEROVSKIA atriplicifolia ‘Denim ‘n Lace’ (Russian Sage)  

‘Denim ‘n Lace’ is compact with stronger stems and a more upright habit than most older varieties. Lacy-like, bright sky blue flowers are held on amethyst calyxes. Its calyxes are spaced very close together giving the flowers a very full look. The colorful calyxes make it look like it is still in bloom even when it is past its peak. You’ll have great color nearly all season long.

As long as you plant this in full sun, ‘Denim ‘n Lace’ will grow easily, is drought tolerant and thrives on neglect!

PLATYCODON grandiflorus ‘Astra Pink’  (Balloon Flower)

Interesting balloon-like buds burst open into beautiful bell-shaped flowers. Exceptional branching and thick flower petals make for long-lasting light pink blooms. Its compact, uniform habit makes 'Astra Pink' a good selection for cut flowers, containers, or the garden.

The number of different types of perennials available has increased more than any other type of plants in the last forty years.  Our offerings of perennials for sun and shade have grown to over 150 varieties, with new perennials available each year.

PERENNIAL OF THE YEAR™

Allium ‘Millenium’  

(Ornamental Onion)

Allium ‘Millenium’ provides many gorgeous, butterfly-attracting flowers in late summer when the garden is most in need of color. This Allium has numerous desirable characteristics such as attractive, shiny deep green foliage, a profuse display of bright rose-pink flowered globes, a vigorous growth rate, and excellent deer and rabbit resistance. Best of all, Allium 'Millenium' is a foolproof companion plant that looks great with many other summer blooming perennials. This Allium reaches 15" tall x 18-22" wide and differs from commonly found Allium in that it blooms in late summer instead of spring.
