Cool New Plants for 2010!

Echinacea “Hot Summer” Coneflower                                                              There have been some incredible Echinacea introductions in the past couple of years, but no single variety makes a complete bouquet like ‘Hot Summer’. Glistening rayed petals open a soft, mango color and fade to orange-red. Spectacular! A tall variety; strong clumps look like fireworks with a continuous burst of new flowers all summer long. Well-deserving of a special spot in the full sun, ‘Hot Summer’ will generate a blooming display of color during the hottest time of the year.

Heuchera  “ Georgia Peach”  Coral Bells                                                           Like most peaches on a summer day, this Heuchera changes color from peachy-orange tones to rosy-purple and always with a decorative white veil. Especially bred for the warmer regions of our country, ‘Georgia Peach’ is stunning with surprisingly soft , large leaves that remain evergreen all year. Creamy-white flowers stand on wispy stems in spring.

Chasmanthium “River Mist” Sea Oats                                                                 What a beauty; one of our beloved natives with variegated foliage! A warm-season grower, upland sea oats are especially valued for their graceful, hanging “oats” held on slender, nodding foliage. Flowering begins in mid-summer with white seed heads that remain attractive through the winter months. A showcase plant, this striking green and white foliage form will make a fantastic specimen. Plant in part shade and provide adequate moisture during the summer months.

Weigela “Rainbow Sensation”
An old fashioned plant, Weigelas bring to mind some our most beloved memories; the fragrance of spring, a burst of pink or red trumpet-like blooms, perhaps a shrub flowering near your Grandmother’s doorstep. In the last 20 years, a great deal of work has gone into breeding for new improved varieties. This garden sensation represents a whole new class of Weigela. A charming selection, before the first flowers appear, Rainbow Sensation™ will brighten your garden with its attractive, variegated foliage. Dense clusters of soft-pink, funnel-shaped flowers bloom in profusion in May, as hummingbirds flock to harvest the sweet nectar. Gently arching stems add grace to the garden with a rainbow of color on this compact shrub. Stems can be cut for flower arrangements. A tough plant, Weigela is especially suited for urban environments where it performs beautifully with minimal care. Extremely hardy, plants thrive in a wide range of growing conditions.
