    • Chrysanthemum

      With absolutely no pinching, this late-summer bloomer boasts a dense canopy of up to 5,000 pastel coral, daisylike flowers over a five-week period.

    • Delphinium

      Double your pleasure with 'Pagan Purples.' One of the first truly double delphiniums, it sports petal-packed racemes of glistening blue to mauve flowers.

    • Allium

      Exploding in rich pink, canary yellow, and creamy white, 'Fireworks Display' sparkles in midsummer gardens -- like a burst of fireworks, the outer blooms bend down while the inner ones stand up.

    • Lily

      Combining the best of Oriental and trumpet lilies, 'Silk Road' has 8- to 10-inch-wide white blooms with crimson throats and a fragrance that will waft through the entire garden.

    • Verbena

      For a dry, desolate garden corner or a patio planting that needs a little pizzazz, call on 'Babylon Blue' for an infusion of deep blue, almost purple, color.

    • Fuchsia

      Pretty in pastels, 'Shadow Dancer Ginger' is an elegant new fuchsia with flowers made up of coral-pink sepals and a single white corolla.

    • Geranium

      The new 'Galleria' geranium blooms right through the dog days of summer, making it great for baskets and containers where the lush green foliage can cascade over the edges.

    • Coneflower

      Just like no two sunsets are alike, no two flowers from this new hybrid, 'Cherokee Sunset,' are alike. It's a long lasting flower, so be sure to plant extras for bouquets.

    • Sweet Pea

      Breeding often stifles the heavenly perfume of sweet peas, but that's not the case with 'April in Paris.' An intoxicating mix of orange-blossom and honey scents radiate from its ruffled cream-color flowers.
