Petal Power

Pale Pink Flowers2
Bursting with color and brimming with personality, these new blooming beauties are sure to get a few jealous looks from their fellow flowers.

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.

Spider Flower

Providing a sea of pink-hued summer blooms, 'Sparkler Bush,' which reaches a mature height of only 3 feet and a width of 3 feet, will make waves in any garden.
