2015 New Perennials

2015 New Plant Descriptions:

I have hand selected and trialed many of these new plants.  For years customers have asked for perennials that bloom a really long time.  The plants below really have that characteristic!  Please enjoy these new plants and the nature they bring to your yard!


 

Agastache/Kudos Series (Hardy Zone 5)

Simply the best! Amazingly free flowering and easy to grow. Kudos has an impeccable habit and long lasting, glowing color. Flowers from June thru September!! Plumes are dense with a sweet honey-mint scent. A real standout in mixed containers, or as a border plant. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds and deer resistant.
