For years Park gardeners asked us to stock the Yellow Lilac, and we didnt think wed ever find a good, reliable grower here in Amer...ica. Very popular in Europe, Primrose is tough to find this side of the Atlantic, so we are absolutely delighted to announce that we FINALLY have good, reliable, get-up-and-grow stock that will take off in your zone 3-7 garden. And the best part is that the pastel yellow color actually deepens and grows more intense with age, giving you a more spectacular show with each passing year! Originally introduced to the world in 1949, Primrose bears numerous graceful, yet dense panicles of pastel yellow flowers in mid-spring. Such a sensation did it create when it was introduced that it won a Royal Horticulture Society Award of Merit in 1950 and has never looked back, continuing to be the pride of many a garden! Handsome and compact, this shrub reaches just 10 feet tall (at most) and anywhere from 6 to 12 feet wide. Instead of big growth, it concentrates its energy on producing the stunning blooms! Space the shrubs 6 to 12 feet apart in an airy location with full sun and well-drained soil. A yearly top-dressing of mulch, preferably well-composted manure, is beneficial. Zones 3-7.

There has never been a yellow Hosta quite like Dancing Queen, and it will stand out in the shade garden like a shaft of sunshine i...n a dark glen! This large, wide Hosta is exquisitely rippled and quilted, its outstanding foliage attention-getting in any setting. The new leaves open bright gold in spring, turning a lighter shade as the season progresses. Long, pointed, and heavily rippled, they are held elegantly up and out from the center of the plant. With each passing year, they grow more intensely textured and beautifully substantial. In midsummer, the foliage is topped by pale lavender blooms on 28-inch stems.

Dancing Queen eventually reaches 18 inches high and spreads about 30 inches wide. Spectacular in the border, it is also superb for woodland settings, and can even be grown in a large container. It forms the natural centerpiece of any Hosta garden, standing out brilliantly against El Nino, Silver Bay, and 48438>Abiqua Drinking Gourd, among many others.

One of the most popular Hardy Ferns, this tall, graceful plant sets arching fronds up to 5 feet long and 3 feet wide. As they matu...re they spread at the tip, creating a lovely canopy effect. Very easy to grow in a variety of light exposures, the Ostrich Fern thrives in moist, rich soil. Widely grown in Victorian gardens, Ferns are enjoying a renaissance of popularity. Few plants impart such a light, airy, cooling effect in the landscape, or provide such a range of foliage textures for the garden. Easy to grow, even in a lightly shaded southern woodland setting, they like a light, highly organic soil with ample moisture during their growing season, particularly as the plants are becoming established. Most prefer shade or partial shade. Our plants are of northern ancestry for extra hardiness, and perform better and better with age. Do not plant too deep; set the crowns at or just below soil level. A year-round mulch is recommended. Ostrich Fern reaches up to 5 feet high and about 2 to 3 feet tall, and spreads over time to form large, glorious colonies. It appreciates part to full shade, but can tolerate a good amount of sun. Easy, long-lived, and ready to multiply! Zones 2-7. read more

What a differen...ce these lush leaves make ? they remain dense and lovely until frost, and the flowers keep coming as well, unbelievably abundant and not ready to quit until summers end.

If you are partial to butterflies and hummingbirds, or if you need quick cover-up of a wall, fence, or unsightly garden presence, Major Wheeler is waiting for you.

Although Major Wheeler grows most quickly and flowers most heavily in full sun, it can tolerate a bit of shade. Once established it is very drought tolerant, and of course it revels in the humidity that reduces older varieties to bare stems by summers end. We highly recommend it for brilliant vertical color.

Synonym: Thelypteris decursive-pinnata The balance can sometimes be so delicate in the garden between quick-spreading and out of c...ontrol, so its a relief to find a Fern that truly knows the meaning of restraint.

A new selection of a native species, this is without a doubt the largest-flowered mophead type in the world, its blooms approaching the size of beachballs! Incrediball® arose, like so many great inventions, as an accident -- it was part of a breeding program designed to improve the stem strength of Hydrangea, so that the blooms would stand up rather than flopping. Well, it worked -- but who could have imagined the blooms would emerge so enormous and so packed with florets? It is descended from Hydrangea Annabelle, a beloved favorite for decades, but each of Incrediballs® flowerheads contains 4 TIMES THE NUMBER OF BLOOMS as Annabelles. Its simply amazing. The blooms open a very pale shade of green to cream, maturing to pure white. Like most Hydrangea, they begin blooming when the warm summer weather arrives, and continue all season, often generously extending into fall. Cut the blooms for fresh or dried arrangements; they last for months indoors, their petals acquiring a lovely papery texture.

This astonishing Elephant Ear is well-named -- it really does look like something that would grow for the giant in JACK AND THE BE...ANSTALK. The foliage is absolutely massive, many feet long and wide, with a glossy texture, prominent ribbing, and a rich blue-green cast that lightens to chartreuse around the edges. The foliage arises from a central point on massive tubers that are probably triploids, offering three times the chromosomal power of most other Elephant Ears. Jacks Giant is native to East Asia and India, and certainly lends a big splash of tropical flair to any garden setting. Reaching at least 7 feet tall and 5 to 8 feet wide, it thrives in moist to boggy or even wet soils, prefering those that are well enriched with organic matter. In wintertime, however, it needs much drier conditions to keep from rotting. Good drainage and consistent moisture is the solution, with a siting in sun to light shade.

Plant Patent #21880. Fire Chief is a remarkable coral bells not just because of its intense scarlet color, but because of its amaz...ing blooms. The dainty flowers are a lovely accent, the stems are tall and brightly colored, and best of all, these little flowers rebloom like crazy! Fire Chief reblooms repeatedly through spring, summer, and fall, for an incredibly long season of interest. Even through winter, when the leaves brown a bit, they still hold a rusty red color. Remove these spent leaves before the spring to encourage a neat, compact appearance. Fire Chief makes an excellent groundcover for shady spots, and its richly-coloed foliage is also a welcome addition to any mixed container or even an arrangement. With Fire Chief you will have plenty of red tones to choose from: the leaves come on a bright crimson and as they mature they develop darker, maroon markings, ultimately browning out through the winter.This coral bells hybrid quickly grows to form a medium-sized mound about 15 inches wide and 9 inches tall (18 when in flower). The 3-season blooms attract butterflies and hummingbirds, while the thick, leathery foliage is tough enough to stand up to the elements and retain its beauty--in fact, the scarlet color only improves with sunlight. This wondrous foliage even resists powdery mildew. Fire Chief can tolerate a lot of sun in the North; in the South plant it in part to full shade and average soil. The more sun it gets, the more careful you need to be about keeping the soil moist to help prevent leaf scorch. Fire Chiefs high tolerance for heat and humidity makes it well-suited to the Deep South, though it is also hardy up to zone 4, and its foliage takes on a lovely russet tone in colder winter.

Plant Patent: #20658. Part of the Short and Sweet® series, this Astilbe was bred to reach a top height of just 16 inches tall. Bec...ause of its disciplined growth habit, Fireberry spends all its energy on blooms, creating torch-like masses of hot pink panicles that divide the ferny foliage nicely. The blooms come on in early- to midsummer, adding a gorgeous raspberry-pink accent to the front of a shady border or any sheltered bed or container. The massed effect is stunning; use Fireberry as a groundcover in shady spots or as a cluster in the woodland garden. And of course the splendid foliage is a welcome addition to the vase! Astilbe likes part shade, rich soil, and frequent watering (especially when blooming). Fireberry is no exception: give it part to full shade and even moisture to let these blooms reach their full glorious potential. Do your part, and Fireberry will reward you with years of reliable beauty--especially since it is pest-resistant! It is an excellent choice for borders that receive any exposure from dappled sunlight to nearly full shade. Long-lived and low maintenance, it is a perennial to be treasured in the shade!

Every cut garden deserves this magnificent beauty! Lake Ontario bursts into bloom from midsummer to mid-fall, flaunting large, dec...orative, 4-inch flowers that are a clear yellow, each petal carefully outlined with a thin red edge. Its a truly dazzling flower in garden or vase! This Dahlia reaches a mature height of 30 to 32 inches and a width of 18 to 24 inches. Its tolerant of a wide range of soil types and situations, but performs best in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Its foliage is dense and low-growing, so it makes a wonderful addition to beds and borders. And of course, its a highly valued cut flower! Zones 8-10. read more

The brightest red Calla of all, Red Alert is a real show off, blooming brightly throughout midsummer in the shady garden and dazzl...ing in the window indoors. The flowers are lovely for cutting, but they add so much sizzle to the shade that you might be tempted to leave them on the plant and enjoy their outdoor impact instead! The color is a true scarlet infused with red, dazzling with all the neon boldness of which Mother Nature is capable. The flowers (actually spathes) arise in good numbers on plants just 20 to 24 inches high. The blooms are banked by handsome dark green foliage that is spotted with cream. Cut a few leaves while youre gathering blooms for the vase--the winsome foliage is colorful, and makes terrific filler and background color! Calla Lilies are moisture lovers, and dont mind wet feet. This makes Red Alert a good choice for the waterside planting or bog garden as well as containers and the shade garden. A fine houseplant, it blooms outdoors in midsummer and is fantastic as a cut-flower. Even the foliage is attractive! Dont miss the chance to liven up any area with the fresh red blooms of this Calla. Find a place for Red Alert in your partly shaded garden or home today! Zones 6-9. read more

The scarlet blooms paint the flowerstalk in color from the bottom to the top, while the whimsical white stripe brings to mind the ...hint of a peppermint, earning Patty its name. The rich red-orange flowers are a vivacious addition to any border or container. This dwarf Glad is part of the Glamini® series from the long-renowned Dutch breeders at Brecks. The Glamini® series is a breakthrough in Gladiolus breeding. Not only are these little Glads half the height of their traditional counterparts, they are also much more floriferous, starting 10 to 15 days earlier than ordinary Glads and growing many more blooms:up to 20 per plant! And every one of these Glads is impeccable, from the stately upright habit of the sword-shaped foliage to the graceful arc of the flower stalk and, of course, the clean, vibrant color of the gorgeous blooms. Despite their small stature (just 20 to 24 inches tall), Glamini® Gladioli produce full-sized flowers up to 8 inches wide, and their short and sturdy stems are wind-proof, holding those big blooms aloft gracefully, with no need for staking. The big, beautiful blooms and compact bodies make Glamini® incredibly versatile. Small enough for beds, pots, or window boxes, but beautiful enough for vases and bouquets, these bulbs will serve you well wherever you plant them--be sure to order extras! These high-quality bulbs come right from Holland, many of them capable of growing 2 flower spikes that will bloom in succession! The solid colors of these Glads look particularly impressive in a massed effect, so we recommend planting them in groups of six or more. Plant in the spring for blooms starting in July and lasting up to 8 weeks! To extend the period of bloom even longer, stagger your planting from early spring until the end of June. Plant this Glamini® about 3 inches deep in a well-drained spot (sun to partial shade). Space plants 3 to 4 inches apart, and give them average water. With little to no help they will burst forth with color in the summer. They are highly pest resistant, and about the only thing that will kill them is cold. After the bloom show is done, they go dormant in the winter. In zone 7 or higher you should dig up the tubers and over-winter them indoors, then replant in the spring. Zones 8 to 10 (but up to 3 with over-wintering). read more

Borne along the garden floor, the large, very distinctive blooms of this Giant Wild Ginger are patterned in black and white, resem...bling a pandas face and giving rise to their common name. Quite showy over a long late spring to early summer season, they add nice triangular silhouettes as well as bold color to this carefree woodland plant. Like most Gingers, A. maximum is a spreading plant, but it grows quite slowly and is easily contained, reaching only 18 inches wide after several seasons. The foliage is quite attractive, bearing a rich emerald tone with white tortoise-shell veins and a distinctive pewter sheen. The tortoise-shell pattern is where the name shell shocked comes from (it has nothing to do with PTSD, we promise). These gorgeous leaves rival the distinguished beauty of the flowers, and they are also very leathery and pest-resistant. Evergreen, it looks good even in the depth of winter, and always emerges fresh in spring. To enjoy these panda-face blooms up close, plant this perennial in a container. But be sure to move it into the partly-shaded garden at some point, for you will want it to majestically colonize over time. Zones 7-9. read more

The most compact of all the Miscanthus available today, Adagio delights with colorful foliage changes as well as a long, lovely se...ason of bloom. Rely on this Dwarf Eulalia Grass to provide year-round, trouble-free beauty in any sunny garden spot. Quickly forming a tight, compact clump with long, slender, arching silvery-green leaves, Adagio reaches just 3 to 4 feet high and wide when not in bloom. That period is limited to spring and early summer, however, for by late summer long, slender, yet very strong stems have shot up over the top of the plant, topped by loose panicles of pale pink. Fluttering like flags in the breeze, these blooms turn beige in autumn and white for winter, remaining on the plant all season in most climates. Cut them for fresh arrangements or for everlastings, or leave them on the plant for winter architecture. Striking! The foliage also demonstrates multiple seasons of beauty. In autumn, when the temperature drops, the leaves turn bright yellow, keeping their color into winter. The only maintenance Adagio needs is a severe trim in late winter, to remove the old growth and prepare for the new. Given this, it is long-lived and lovely! This ornamental grass tolerates many different soil types but thrives best in moist, well-drained settings. It can tolerate a bit of shade, but the best color is usually in full sun. And it is compact enough to be a container specimen! Use Adagio in the border, along the baking driveway (its quite heat- and humidity-tolerant), as a street planting, or in the foundation. It makes a lovely mass planting in open settings as well. And as a patio pot plant, it adds multi-season color and texture to outdoor entertainment areas. Versatile, easy, and long-lived!

Reminiscent of country chapels from your grandmothers era, this charming butterfly house has a white crackle finish that gives it ...a distinctive aged look. Made of solid, rot-resistant cypress, its steeply pitched, shingled roof is accented with copper trim and a rusty cast-iron steeple. Additional copper flashing rests above the entrance slots for more interest, and a copper butterfly is attached to the bottom of the home. Its a true delight for you as well as the butterflies! There are several reasons for placing a butterfly house on your property. For one thing, there are many types of butterflies that hibernate through the cold winter months, so they need a secure shelter in which to stay tucked away. Youll also find that these captivating insects will appreciate a butterfly house for its protection against predators and summer rainstorms -- it keeps them safe and dry and provides them with a worry-free place to rest. Our new Butterfly Chapel is fantastic for attracting butterflies and makes a lovely garden accent at the same time. The front panel has three elongated slots, which mimic the crevices in bark or wood piles that butterflies frequently use for shelter. The cypress construction of this butterfly house offers durability, for years of use in your garden. Made in the USA. Dimensions: 8 W x 6 L x 25 H read more

T...he spears are top-size -- a full 5/8-inch in diameter -- and are bright green with deep purple tips and bracts. Stunning on the dinner plate, theyre one of the easiest varieties to grow, thanks to terrific vigor that makes these plants come back stronger every year! The yield you can expect from Jersey Knight is 2 to 4 times greater than older strains, such as the Washington series. Highly Rust-resistant and tolerant of Fusarium, Crown and Rust Rot, Jersey Knight is the one you want for years of reliable peformance! We sell very well-rooted bareroot plants, and its important that you plant them as quickly as you can upon arrival, because dry or withered roots are a problem for Asparagus. Prepare the soil well, adding plenty of organic matter and fertilizing with a well-balanced mixture such as 5-10-10. Asparagus has deep, spreading roots, so be sure the soil is well-worked. Space the plants about 1 1/2 feet apart and water well during growth. Fertilize twice annually (before new spring growth and right after harvest). Cut no spears the first year, and cut only sparingly the second in order to encourage a great crop for the third year. If you want white (blanched) Asparagus, simply block out the light as the spears are forming by applying mulch on the plants. read more

Prepare to be dazzled by the big, wide-open blooms, handsome foliage, and nonstop flowering of this new trailing Begonia! Santa Cr...uz? Sunset is an exciting choice for any climate, especially hot, long-summer areas that have stressed other Begonias. With blooms from spring until frost, its ready to dazzle in baskets and planters! The flowers are a rich shade of orange-red and borne by the many, many dozen on this lush, mounding trailer. They open 2 to 3 inches wide, extending fully 5 inches wide at their apex, then dropping to the ground, only to be replaced by more. The bloom season begins in late spring in most areas and continues throughout summer and fall, halting only when the plant is nipped back by frost. Santa Cruz? Sunset would be good-looking even if it never flowered, though. The leaves are large, arrow-shaped, and neatly serrated, with pronounced, uniform veins that make them look almost pleated. Dark green and very abundant, they add a tropical look to this annual plant. Set this Begonia in full sun in cool climates, but give it a bit of afternoon shade farther south and west. It is primarily known for its heat tolerance, but given a little pampering in spring, it is quite resistant to drought, too. And youll love how quickly it bounces back from rainstorms and wind! Santa Cruz? Sunset is the Begonia youve been looking for to fill those hot, dry spots where few other plants are happy! Youll love the festive look and nonstop flowering of this beauty!

90 to 100 days. This is one potato thats just as pretty as it tastes! The smooth, red-splashed purple skin of this mid-season vari...ety contrasts beautifully with the pure white flesh held within. These gorgeous round tubers are perfect for baking or mashing with just a little salt and pepper to savor their creamy, sweet, gourmet flavor. Viking Purple is an excellent storage variety, allowing you to enjoy more of your crop over a longer period. It produces mostly 3 1/2 to 4-inch round tubers, but will occasionally wow you with a few whoppers. Compact plants are great for growing more potatoes in less space, and offer excellent resistance to scab and tolerance of heat and drought. Each 2½-pound bag will sow 20 to 25 feet of row and yield more than 25 pounds of potatoes. Theyre simply the best way to grow Potatoes! Like all Potatoes, Viking Purple fares best in sandy, enriched soil, but if you have heavy or clay soil, just used a raised bed or plant the tubers more shallowly, mulching them well with straw. Heres how to grow them: If your soil is normal to sandy, work in some gypsum and Epsom salts before planting, then set the tubers 3 or 4 inches deep and about a foot apart. (If your soil is heavier, plant more shallowly and rely on mulch rather than soil for coverage.) Potato tubers should be planted in early spring, at the same time as you sow your green peas. If a late frost threatens, just toss a few inches of straw or other mulch over the young plants, and chances are theyll be fine. You can also sow potatoes in fall for an earlier harvest. When the shoots emerge, you may want to sow some bush beans alongside the young plants -- theyll keep the bugs down! Basil and Summer Savory are also fine companions that keep insects at bay -- I usually just wait to see which Potatoes didnt sprout, and fill in the gaps with these helpful herbs! (Of course, Marigold, friend to all vegetables for its ability to destroy more nematodes than commercial repellents, is always a beautiful choice too!) Potatoes grow their fruit right under the soil, and over time the tubers may stick out above the soil line. This can cause greening, which ruins the flavor (and adds toxins to the Potato), so watch your plants and mound up more soil, straw, or peat moss as necessary to keep the taters under wraps! The plants may also bloom, and small, hard green fruits will appear when the flowers pass. Dont be tempted to harvest them -- theyre toxic! When its time to harvest, begin at the outer edges of each plant and work your way in. You want to gently turn over the soil using a garden fork or blunt-edged spade, to avoid cutting into the potatoes. Store the spuds, unwashed and not touching one another, in a totally dark, cool place, where theyll last for several weeks. (You can eat them after theyve sprouted; just cut away the inedible sprout and its eye.) Once youve harvested the crop from end to end, begin in a new spot and work your way through it from a different direction. Youll be amazed at how many spuds you missed the first time! 2½-pound bag of tubers to plant 20 to 25 feet of row. read more
