Flowers and Plants Buying Guide

No matter what plants and flowers you favor, there's a type of growing material to fit your preference, as well as complement the architecture of your home, your outdoor time commitments, and the design of your landscape.

Types of Flowers and Plants

Types of Flowers and Plants

Some home gardeners are devoted to their collection of containers, filled to the brim with effusive annuals that last only a single season. Others sing the praise of roses, no matter how much tender loving care they might need. It's one of the rewards of flowers and plants: They are as diverse as people. And if you do enough research -- or digging -- you'll find the type that fits just who you are. If you're an experienced gardener, a little experimenting may help you find a new favorite flower or plant. Take a quick look at these types: bulbs, garden seeds, perennials, roses, shrubs (evergreen and flowering), vines, annuals, and vegetables.

Bulbs

Bulbs are typically planted in the fall and most bloom in the spring; some, however, bloom in summer or fall. Some bulbs will bloom year after year, while others will bloom only once or twice.

Early in summer, 2 1/2- to 3-foot stems are topped by gigantic violet-pink flowerheads -- some fully 8 inches wide! This terrific ...Dutch hybrid blooms for up to 3 weeks, repeating more reliably than its cousin, Allium giganteum. Because its sterile, it puts all its energy into producing more flowers instead of making seeds -- and you reap the benefits! Ideal combined with low-growing, mounding perennials. Zones 4-8. read more

This rapidly multiplying variety blooms with the Daffodils year after year. Its dense spires of rich blue thrive in both sun and s...hade, and the fragrance grows with each passing spring, as it spreads to form ever larger colonies. Ideal beneath trees and shrubs or among larger spring-blooming bulbs. 6 to 8 inches tall. Trouble-free, hardy everywhere, and a true treasure of spring! Zones 3-8. read more

The perfect Allium to place before its larger cousins or as a cover-up for leggy plants, Graceful Beauty reaches just about a foot... high but sports merry 3-inch globes of white, marked with soft lavender anthers and stamens. The effect is of a merry polka-dotted confection, and these blooms last and last in garden or vase. Easy to grow, theyre a must-have for the bulb garden! The blooms on Graceful Beauty are perfectly rounded, covered in star-shaped florets, and ideal for fresh or dried use. They appear in late spring and early summer on very thick, substantial stems that withstand wind and rain nicely in the garden. Graceful Beauty reaches 12 to 16 inches in full bloom, and you can cut the stem right at the base for a long-stemmed flower as elegant as (and much longer-lasting than) a rose. No plant is easier to grow than Allium, and it will naturalize over time where it is happy. Deer and other nibbling creatures tend to leave it alone, but hummingbirds pay their full respects! Give Graceful Beauty full sunshine in all but the warmest climates, where it appreciates relief from the afternoon sun. It sets strap-shaped leaves at the base of the plant, well below the blooms, and dies back after blooming. Tidy and low maintenance, its perfect for any setting from the border to the side of garden paths, the foundation, and even along the baking-hot driveway! Graceful Beauty is a new look for Allium, its soft play of color the perfect complement to brighter, darker blooms in the garden. Pair it with its taller cousins or with roses and peonies. It blooms at the height of the flowering season in the garden, so its companions are myriad! Zones 4-8. read more

Grape Hyacinth is one of the easiest and most beautiful bulbs in the spring-blooming garden, and Early Giant is an exceptional cul...tivar in the family. Rich, cobalt-blue hues on unusually large flowers distinguish this variety, which you will want to plant freely in sun and shade! Grape Hyacinth blooms at the same time as the daffodils in most gardens, and is often planted in conjunction with those taller bulbs. Just 6 to 8 inches high, this beauty forms a long, conical dome of brightest blue, long-lasting and richly fragrant. But Early Giant is much more versatile than daffodils. It tolerates shade, and can be planted even in the poor soil beneath trees. Naturalizing readily, it forms delightful colonies of sweet-scented, rich blue that you will treasure for years to come. Early Giant is easy to force indoors, too, for fragrant winter blooms. Make it part of your indoor winter garden, adding color and scent to the shortest days of the year. You will love this carefree bloomer! Zones 4 to 9. Pack of 20. read more

Garden Seeds

Garden seeds are available for a variety of plant types, including perennials, annuals, vegetables, and vines. Seeds may be started very early indoors in order to get a jump on the growing season; others may be planted outside once the outdoor air and soil temperatures warm sufficiently.

Lime, Violet, White, Red, Buttery Yellow--you get a little bit of everything with this sophisticated mix! This strain incorporates... a wide variety of colors. Each plant will produce just one of these colors, so be sure to order multiples: the more plants you order, the greater your color variety will be! The big, outward-facing single (and occasionally double) blooms grow on strong stems as thick as pencils. Like all Helleborus, this mix requires some shade and appreciates evenly moist, well-drained soil rich in organic matter. It will tolerate clay soil, and in the cooler zones will tolerate more sun. Water frequently until the plants become established, after which they become more drought tolerant and only need constant moisture in exceptionally dry, hot weather. A year-round mulch helps to keep the roots moist. The evergreen foliage keeps its beauty all year, especially since it generally goes un-nibbled by pests like deer: an especially important quality if you intend to grow it in a wooded area! Helleborus readily seeds, slowly expanding its colorful shade empire. In the summer you should pull any of these seedlings that you do not want (these may not come true to their parentage), and transplant the rest into their permanent spots. Once established, Helleborus resent having their roots disturbed, so you should only divide them when necessary, and you should avoid division by spacing them properly in the first place. Zones 4 to 8. read more

Remarkable black blooms! The slate-colored petals are one of the truest blacks of any plant on the market, offset by the bright gr...een of the centers, and all on very large, upward-facing blooms! Combine these rich black blooms with white spring-blooming cultivars like Snowbells or Deutzia for a striking contrast! Even on their own the blooms create a full and beautiful display, with the lime green eye and creamy yellow anthers creating a nice contrast to the black petals. This one-of-a-kind Helleborus is the result of 9 years of meticulous breeding. Part of the Winter Thrillers? series, Night Coaster was bred for reliably true black blooms, very early bloom time, and exceptional flower form. The strong stems are as thick as pencils, proudly bearing their distinctive 3-inch blooms in an outward-facing position. Like other Helleborus, Night Coaster is quite easy to grow: just give it a shady spot with moist, well-draining soil. It will thrive even in clay soil, quickly becoming established, after which it can tolerate heat, humidity, and drought quite well. This trouble-free cultivar is generally left alone by pests and diseases, surviving for year after year of early-season beauty! 3½ Inch Container. Zones 5 to 9. read more

For sheer bloom power and beautiful color, no Daylily surpasses everblooming Stella de Oro! Often the first to begin the Daylily s...eason and the last to end it, Stella blooms for months on end on compact plants 2 feet high and wide. The flowers are magnificent--a rich golden-yellow that keeps its color throughout the amazingly long bloomtime. Stella de Oro is Americas favorite Daylily (by a long shot!), and inevitably many Stella imitators have arisen. Be assured that our bareroot plants are vegetatively propagated from the original parent plant, so you get the true Stella. The neat, compact habit makes Stella de Oro perfect for containers, edgings, and the front of the border as well as for mass displays in beds and along driveways or fences. No wonder they named it Star of Gold! You will treasure this plant in your garden for many years to come. Hardy, permanent, and easy to grow, Daylilies are one of the finest investments you can make in long-lasting garden beauty for minimal effort! Although each bloom lasts only one day, others rise up to take its place, so that each plant blooms for many weeks. Theyre made for naturalizing--in fact, you will want to dig them up every 5 or 6 years and divide the big clumps into smaller plants. Not only will you get more plants, but the bloom power will increase after division! And this 10-pack of vigorous bareroots is the perfect way to get your display started! A good choice for problem areas where little else grows happily, Daylilies are not fussy about soil and ask only full sun to part shade. They will withstand a lot of neglect and continue to prosper!

Introduced in 1868, Zephirine Drouhin is a romantic, fantastically fragrant, old-fashioned Rose that is still one of the most popu...lar Climbing Roses today, especially in Europe. No Modern Rose has been able to exceed it for sheer performance and season-long bloom. Peaking in spring and fall, the loose, semi-double blossoms of vivid cerise-carmine provide outstanding mass effect. Each bloom is about 4 inches across, opening from a long, pointed bud and made up of 20 to 30 richly colored petals that are infused with a strong damask scent. The plant grows vigorously to 15 to 20 feet high and 4 to 5 feet wide and, remarkable for any Rose, performs well in shade! Its an excellent choice for north-facing walls and areas with little sunlight. The rich, dark green foliage (coppery-purple when young) is very mildew-resistant, and the canes are thornless, making it great for planting where traffic is heavy or children are nearby. This classic, time-tested climbing rose is the perfect choice to train over a trellis or porch, or trim into a formal hedge. Plant in moist, well-drained, loamy soil. Zones 5-9. read more

Plant Patent #20,506. Cultivar Name: Green 98-009. The pillar-like shrub of foliage is evergreen in its hardiness zone, and while ...other plants are dropping their leaves in October, it decides to bloom instead! The color, form, and profusion of these wondrous fall blooms are all reminiscent of the Floribunda rose, hence the name. Commonly referred to as dwarf sasanqua, the species C. hiemalis is both smaller and more cold hardy (up to zone 6 or 7) than sasanqua, but offers the same profusion of gorgeous medium-sized blooms. The October Magic® series is a Green Nurseries introduction offered through the Southern Living Plant Collection. This series represents a great improvement over the species, with plants that are more vigorous, disease resistant, and that continue the fall blooming season later into the winter. October Magic® Rose is unique in the series for its very upright columnar habit of growth, which lends itself to being pruned in a pillar rose form, the spire of coral red color adding a bright exclamation point in the garden! Like other Camellias, October Magic® Rose will tolerate a wide variety of soil conditions, but they really thrive in organically rich, acidic soil. Their shape tends to be naturally beautiful and relatively compact, making pruning unnecessary. If you choose to prune, do so in very early spring before the buds have formed. Broken shade is ideal: it will tolerate full sun well, but only if it stays well watered. Zones 7 to 9. read more

Apricot-orange blooms--what a fantastic treasure for your garden! Westerland is a vigorous and versatile rose! Classified as a shr...ub, this rose can also be trained as a climber--what more could a rose lover ask for? It presents small clusters of flowers that reach a diameter of almost 5 inches and perfume the air with a strong clove, rose, spicy fragrance. The soft-colored, double blooms open from attractive ovoid buds, boasting 17 to 25 ruffled petals that are nothing short of breathtaking! Youll love how the various shades of apricot and orange blend into each other across the petals, creating an artistic look that barely seems real. Westerland is a wonderfully versatile rose as well. Growing from 5 to 12 feet high and about 4 feet wide, its great for landscaping or growing in containers (in mild climates) and can even be trained as a climber. And of course, the blooms are wonderful for cutflower arrangements! Hardy and vigorous, its shown excellent disease resistance, so its large, dark green foliage will stay clean and healthy all season long! Plant in moist, well-drained, fertile soil in full sun.

This outstanding classic (introduced in 1930) is the standard by which all repeat-flowering climbers are judged! If you have stron...g vertical or horizontal support for this magnificent rose, add it to your garden at once! New Dawn is a free-flowering, easy-to-grow standout rose. Its blooms are fragrant, its glossy, dark green foliage lush and surprisingly disease resistant, and its season of bloom very long. Each fully double bloom measures 3 to 4 inches wide, sporting tones of pearlescent blush. The scent is powerfully sweet, making New Dawn a great choice for the vase as well as the garden. And the blooms arise in big clusters, so a single snip makes a bouquet. Climbing 18 to 20 feet high and 7 to 10 feet wide, New Dawn flowers reliably all summer long and into autumn in many climates. Its hardy, very vigorous, and tolerant of some shade. A classic for more than 75 years, it is a superb choice for a wide variety of areas, from pillars, arbors, and trellises to inclusion in the cut garden. This climbing rose can be grown in the ground or in a container, but container growth will require winter protection. It can be pruned after flowering is finished to maintain a smaller habit.

One of the first paniculatas to bloom, this Proven Winners®/Color Choice® variety... is remarkable for its diminutive frame and its fluffy flower spikes, the white florets accented with deep carmine tones, regardless of soil pH! With blooms on old and new wood alike over a long season, this is a little workhorse in the cutting garden! Little Quick Fire? is a gardeners dream come true. This very vigorous, lovely shrub sets masses of white-to-rosy-pink flowers at the first breath of hot weather, and continues the show through summer and into fall. Our gardens could all use an extra 4 to 5 weeks of color, and thats exactly what it delivers -- even in areas with cold winters and late spring frosts! These large, loosely-held blooms open creamy-white, then quickly turn a deep rosy-pink that is a bit unusual in hue and very eye-catching. Their color isnt affected by soil pH, so you can plant Little Quick Fire? alongside your blue H. macrophyllas in acidic soil and still be assured of rosy blooms. And since this Hydrangea flowers on new wood, they will continue to arise even late in the season -- a real boon for those of us in climates prone to late-spring frosts that kill the buds of our Hydrangeas!

Fire Light? is a new cold-hardy Hydrangea paniculata that di...splays large red and white flower heads in midsummer and blooms reliably regardless of climate. Fire Light? makes an impressive display, reaching up to 6 feet high and wide, boasting 12- to 16-inch blooms held upright on strong red stems that will not droop. This commanding perennial dominates the summer and fall landscape, demanding the attention of all who look upon it. The lush color-shifting blooms are a great focal point for a single accent planting or a striking row. The pinks and whites also beautifully complement Roses and other perennials, making Fire Light? an excellent source of mid-to-late season color in the back of the border. If you do not have a 6 x 6 area available for these Hydrangeas to reach their full majesty, you can train them to a more compact size with moderate pruning. Fire Light? blooms in midsummer, earlier than other paniculatas that delay their blooms until late summer or even early fall, but its flowers remain striking well into cool weather. The blooms arise on new wood, so it is best to prune in late fall or early spring.? Fire Light? is adaptable, working well with most soils, as long as it is well-drained and gets some sun.

Thuja Green Giant is one of the fastest growing of all Conifers. This very rare Western Red Cedar will put on 3 to 5 feet of growt...h per year. An excellent evergreen privacy screen or windbreak, its also tremendously dense, weather-resistant, repellent to deer, and marvelously fragrant! This is the tree you want outlining your property, shielding you from noise, neighbors, or rough wind! Elegant and uniform, the conical habit of Green Giant needs no shearing or pruning, and is cloaked in dense, dark, evergreen foliage clear to the ground. Of course, you can also shear the foliage into any desired shape, and keep the plant trimmed to just the size you want. And this is a very easy plant to grow, tolerating almost any soil type and resistant to damage from ice and snow, as well as deer and most other pests. Green Giant is able to withstand drought well, and once established in your yard is very resistant to heat, humidity, and cold. The most vigorous growth will be in full sun and enriched soil with plenty of water and fertilizer, especially the first few years. Green Giant can also tolerate a bit of shade. Expect it to eventually reach 30 to 50 feet tall, 10 to 12 feet wide. Zones 5-9, plus 10 on the West Coast. read more

Vines

Vines may be perennials or annuals, as well as roses; some will bloom, while others simply provide pretty foliage.

Annuals

Unlike perennials, annuals live for just one growing season; they reward, though, with incredibly fast growth. For many home gardeners, annuals (which you can grow from seed or plants) allow people to enjoy plants that would otherwise not be suitable for certain climates.

Vegetables may be grown from seeds or seedlings; they can be started indoors or planted outside as soon as temperatures and the ground are warm enough.

Product Features

Product Features

Although they are incredibly diverse in both form and function, all flowers and plants have certain product features that affect how well they do in the garden and how much enjoyment you derive from them. For example, a garden that's filled with summertime stunners looks great in the height of the growing season, but it may leave much to be desired in spring and fall. Vegetables that are harvested in July are delicious, but there are rewards to be had with those that mature in May and October, too. As you look to fill your garden, consider growth pattern and bloom season first.

Growth Pattern

Every flower and plant has a different growth pattern. Some will remain tightly constrained, while others will sprawl. You should understand not just what your plant or flower will look like in the first two years but every year that you grow it.

Bloom Season

Plants that flower have a prime bloom season, which will affect how your garden looks from spring to summer to fall. Careful planning can give you blooms throughout the growing season.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

It may seem strange to think about flowers and plants as having purchase considerations, but they do. Those are typically related to how the plant performs in your landscape and what growing constraints you may have. For example, a plant that stays tidy and contained in its growth will fit well into a limited-size garden -- but you will quickly be frustrated by a plant that's unruly and intended for a more free-flowing landscape. So as you're reviewing the potential for different plants and flowers, take into consideration garden size, planting time, and pests and diseases, too.

Garden Size

You have an established size for both your garden bed and your selected plant or flower. Make sure the plant or flower you select will fit in that spot when it is fully grown, both in height and width.

Planting Time

Different plants and flowers will be more or less successful based on if whether they are planted at their ideal times. Check to see what outdoor and soil temperatures are, as well as the length of time from seed to harvest if you're planting vegetables or herbs.

Pests and Diseases

Every flower and plant has particular susceptibility to certain pests, diseases, and critters. Make sure you understand what you can do to promote healthy plant growth and discourage damage.

Hibiscus syriacus Azurri Satin®, Cultivar Name: DVPazurri, PP#20,563. This seedless Rose of Sharon grows an even larger body with ...even bigger flowers. The rich blue single flowers are as big as dinner plates, and they arise on lush plants 6 feet wide and 8 to 12 feet tall! This thriller is sure to become the focal point of you whole garden. And because this cultivar is sterile, it will not take over your yard (and beyond) like other Hibiscus can. Azurri Satin® is a carefree joy youll want for the hot, sunny summer garden. Few shrubs are more heat- and humidity-tolerant than Hibiscus, which basks in temperatures that make others wilt and brown out! Give this shrub plenty of water and nonstop sunlight and youve got a bloom machine 5 months out of every year! The showy, tropical blooms are a powder blue with a crimson eye that bleeds outward. The stunning, gigantic blooms open from late summer until late fall, attracting attention for months. Even though this variety is seedless, it still produces enough nectar to attract plenty of butterflies! The alluring blooms are all the more impressive because they are borne high in the air on plants with a graceful, narrow habit. Azurri Satin ® is a great choice for a foundation planting, accent in the patio or other garden nook, or hedge. It makes a fine companion to Plum Fantasy, and a nice background planting to Dwarf Russian Sage and other low-growing shrubs, as well as colorful annuals and perennials of all description. No shrub is easier--this is one tough plant, untroubled by pests and disease and able to maintain itself through good weather and poor alike. Space these shrubs about 4 to 5 feet apart for a dense wall of showy color. Zones 5-9. read more

For years the Holy Grail of serious gardeners, this Itoh Hybrid from master breeder Roger Anderson sold for more than $1,000 a div...ision as late as 1999, but today is mercifully much more affordable! Yet no other Peony has surpassed it for beauty, fragrance, or sheer flower power, and we doubt any will. With blooms measuring 9 inches across, fully double and redolent of zesty lemon, this Peony would be remarkable even if it didnt have the vigor to produce more than 80 flowers a season on a single plant. The flowers are simply magnificent, whorled like a rose but far longer-lasting and much larger. The outer layers are a creamy meringue, becoming more richly yellow toward the center, where hints of a red base (the flares characteristic of Tree Peonies) are visible as the bloom unfolds to its fullest extent. Absolutely superior to others as a cut-flower, they last for several weeks in the vase, their scent remaining as fresh and enticing as their petals. A single plant will perfume the garden and keep your vases full . . . but at this very special pricing, who would plant just one? Bartzella is an intersectional or Itoh hybrid, a very special class of Peonies with parentage from both Tree and Herbaceous species. Blooming in between the Tree Peonies and their Herbaceous cousins, Bartzella offers a range of superior traits: shrubby habit, fragrance, luscious bloom color and larger bloom size, excellent resistance to Peony Blight, tolerance of heat, humidity, cold, and poor soil, and extended bloom season. This plant reaches about 3 feet high and wide in sun or light shade. It is untroubled by rabbits or deer, and is quite long-lived, blooming dependably for decades. Peonies are very slow to propagate (hence their high price) but are quite low maintenance once planted in the garden. They flower in late spring or early summer, and often need plant supports to hold up their bounty of huge blooms. Although most frequently used as a cutflower, they are a delightful garden presence as well, the flowers holding for weeks. Discover the joy of this old-fashioned flower with modern vigor, longevity, and bloom strength! And please reserve your Bartzella early. At this price, it will not see out the season! Zones 3-8. read more
