Monarda 'Grape Gumball' (Bee Balm)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

This brand new series of SUGAR BUZZ� Monardas is perfectly suited to the middle of the flower border. In midsummer, 'Grape Gumball' forms a solid dome of vibrant magenta, 2-2.5� flowers on strong, well-branched stems. The dark green foliage forms an upright clump that will fill out containers nicely but won�t run all over the garden. It displays above average resistance to powdery mildew.

Monarda is native to eastern North America, so it is easy to grow and it multiplies quickly. The flowers' sweet nectar attracts scores of hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees to the garden. The aromatic foliage smells like mint when crushed and is often used to flavor teas.

Nepeta racemosa ''Walkers Low'' (Catmint)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

This British variety was selected as the 2007 Perennial Plant of the Year. Plants are mounded and bushy in habit, with small grey-green fragrant leaves. Masses of bright-blue flowers appear on short spikes in early summer, continuing on and off through the fall if the old flowers are regularly removed. Despite the name, this is best in the middle of a border because of its mid-sized stature. Drought tolerant, once established. Flowers are attractive to butterflies.

Papaver orientale 'Beauty of Livermere' (Oriental Poppy)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Grow your oriental poppies in really sharp drainage or they will die out over winter. The foliage will go dormant after blooming so combine with other perennials such as ornamental grasses, achillea, or filipendula to cover the dormancy. Even with all these concerns, oriental poppies really deserve a place in your gardens. The huge, dinner plate size of these rich, dark, fire engine red flowers with their course, hairy foliage just can't be beat.

Pulsatilla vulgaris 'Violet Bells' (Pasque flower)

I must have at least 50 of these in my 16 display gardens. Obviously, one of my favorites. I'm not sure if it's the flower or the spider-silver seed pod I like most. One of the first to bloom in my gardens. Bell-shaped, single dark red flowers look marvelous combined with spring bulbs, bergenia, dicentra 'Ivory Heart'and dark foliage ajuga.

With its bold divided leaves this forms an exotic-looking clump that adds a unique foliage accent to any moist border.

Sedum 'Firecracker' SUNSPARKLER� Series ()

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

For a rich blanket of color in those hot, sunny areas, try Sedum �Firecracker� from breeder Chris Hansen who also brought us �Dazzleberry� and �Lime Zinger�. This is Chris� improvement over his previous red-foliage introduction, �Cherry Tart�. You will be amazed by the foliage bud count on each dormant plug; it is a very dense growing, well-branched selection that won�t split open in summer. It puts on a strong show of burgundy red color all season long, with only the tiniest new leaves emerging mint green. Plant �Firecracker� en masse in the landscape as a colorful, weed-suppressing ground cover and enjoy its vibrant pink flowers in late summer to early fall as an added bonus.
