This mixture of large-flowered hybrids replaces the Singles strain we offered for many years because the hybrids are substantially... more perennial. They owe their durability to one of their parents, A. ficifolia, a long-lived Siberian species with Fig-like foliage. In all other respects, these are the traditional Hollyhocks, whose towering spikes of huge (4–5″) blooms are one of summer's greatest pleasures. Colors run from white to pale yellow to pink and burgundy, and plants reach heights of 6–8′. Hollyhocks will never outlive Peonies, but the plants from this Perennial Mixture carry on long after their biennial cousins are gone. Use multiple plants for a full range of color. The common Hollyhock is one of the most desirable garden plants nature ever invented. Alcea should be planted in full sun and, if placed in a protected location, might not need to be staked. Flowering begins in June here and continues into August. Rust, a fungus that appears as orange-brown spotting on the leaves, can sometimes be a problem, but seems to have little effect on the vigor of the plant. This can be avoided or diminished by providing ample air circulation around the plants. If necessary, treat with applications of Neem Oil or sulfur starting early in the season.For more information on growing Alcea, click Growing Guide.Hardiness Zone:3,4,5,6,7,7S,7W,8,8W,9,9W,10,10W Blooms In:August July June Spacing:18-24" Height:6-8' Ships as:1 PINT 28.86 CU IN. read more

An Orienpet Lily with huge, 8″ flowers, intoxicatingly fragrant and borne on spires up to 2′ across for longer than you thought po...ssible. Winner of the North American Lily Society's popularity poll for 4 straight years. Stunningly beautiful Orienpet Lilies are hybrids between Oriental and Trumpet Lilies. We will continue to offer more varieties as they become available from Holland and the West Coast. Orienpets combine the best features of both groups of Lilies—fragrance, large flowers, and sturdy garden performance—but bloom about 2 weeks earlier than most Orientals. The advantage is an almost continuous sequence of Lily blooms, if you start with Asiatic varieties, then follow with Trumpets, Orienpets, and Orientals. Lilies are one of the truly great garden plants. Their beauty, diversity, extended season of bloom, exquisite fragrance, graceful stature, and reliable disposition reflect the fruits of hundreds of years of selective breeding. Your garden should not be without them, whether you manage acres of mixed borders or a few pots on a city balcony. Lilies prefer cool soil, which argues for shade at their feet from low-growing companions such as Ferns, Geraniums, or Hellebores. Plant Lilies in well-drained soil where they will receive 6–8 hours of sun a day. When cutting the flowers for bouquets, remove no more than ⅓ of the stem. This provides sufficient leaves on the remaining stem to renew the bulb for the coming year.

A remarkable early bloomer that produces flowers with wide, overlapping petals in early June, then blooms intermittently all summe...r long and into fall. The flowers never set seed, which accounts for their unusually long bloom time. A very impressive introduction from Dr. Jim Ault at the Chicago Botanic Garden. PP 24,918 This important genus of valuable garden plants includes reliable and colorful species that bloom both early and late, in sun and shade, and in a range of rich colors that is equaled by few other genera. These glorious summer bloomers often have a spicy vanilla-clove perfume that is perfectly enchanting. We are, therefore, distressed to see Phlox falling out of favor for reasons that we suspect relate to problems with powdery mildew, which is much less common in modern varieties, or if plants are sited where there is good air movement and grown in soil that doesn't dry out. They can be backbone plants for any sunny border. Good companions include Shasta Daisies, Echinacea, Lilies, and ornamental Grasses.

The strappy leaves and spikes of lilac flowers are similar to those of Grape Hyacinths, but this Lilyturf is a good deal taller, a...nd it blooms enthusiastically in August and September. A drought-tolerant, creeping ground cover that’s perfect for planting under trees, along sidewalks, and at the edges of dry borders. The four species of Liriope (commonly called Lilyturf), all Asian natives, are evergreen perennials that spread to form deep carpets of grasslike leaves. Gardeners in colder climates tend to think of Lilyturf as a plant for the Deep South, but that is not accurate and has cost many of us the use of a most attractive ground cover. Plants here are happy in practically any light conditions, including dense shade, and will tolerate prolonged dry spells without a whimper (they require afternoon shade in the South and West and falter in desert regions). If the foliage looks tattered by winter's end, it can be mowed to the ground before new growth starts.

This June lineup of big blooms begins with the deep pink, semidouble 'Paula Fay' and the moderately fragrant, semidouble 'Coral Su...nset'; continues with the rose pink, fragrant double 'Duchesse de Nemours' and bright red, double 'Kansas'; then finishes with the scented, pink double 'Sarah Bernhardt,' recipient of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. You can't go wrong adding this hardy, long-lived group to your mixed border or cutting garden. The Peony Parade includes one of each variety, 5 plants total.Peonies produce their extravagant display in early June every year, regardless of weather, because they are among the most durable and longest-lived plants. They have no natural enemies, no exacting cultural requirements beyond full sun and neutral to slightly sweet soil, and they shrug off cold. After bloom is complete, you are left with a handsome mound of glossy, deep green foliage that will happily anchor the next sequence of bloom in the neighborhood. Finally, Peonies make superior cut flowers, lasting more than a week if cut in full bud.We ship large roots with 3-5 eyes that are fresh from the growing fields. While a newly planted Peony seldom makes a first-class show in its first season, these vigorous plants will reach the top of their form in their second or third year. Southern gardeners should seek out our early bloomers and provide afternoon shade. Please note: Our Peonies are shipped for fall planting.Hardiness Zone:3,4,5,6,7,7S,7W,8,8W Blooms In:June Spacing:24-36" Height:36" Ships as:BAREROOT read more

There are as many as 90 species in this genus of Grass-like plants from the Western Hemisphere, but only Sisyrinchium angustifoliu...m is hardy for us. It's a carefree native, but we've never paid much attention to it because, frankly, it's not very showy. And then along came this selection, which we found at a nursery in Switzerland. It forms a clump of narrow, blue-green leaves 12″ tall and wide that looks for all the world like an ornamental Grass. Then, over a long period that begins in May and runs into July, it blankets itself with starry, lavender-blue flowers that are much larger than those of the species, fully 1″ across. It makes a superb edging, especially along a walk or a terrace. Plants flower best in full sun but also put on a good show in partial shade, and though the species is found in moist locations, they're not the least picky about soil. Thanks to this variety, Blue-eyed Grass finally moves from the wild to a prominent place in the garden. A White Flower Farm introduction.

This long bloomer provides gardeners with the deepest, darkest violet-blue flowers to be found among the perennial Sages, and it b...looms from May into August. It's little wonder this plant is in such great demand. Combine with Aquilegia for a late spring treat. 'Mainacht' Only a few of the perennials in this large genus are hardy for us in Northwest Connecticut, but among them are several superb garden plants. Most offer spikes of densely packed flowers in shades of pink and purple and have a long period of bloom. They are especially valuable where summers are hot and dry, for they ignore heat and go steadily about the business of making flowers. All prefer sun and excellent drainage.
