Almost Eden is celebrating our 20th Anniversary this month!

We would like to say a huge thank you to our awesome customer base and our wonderful crew!

We have added over 160 new plants to our catalog for the 2022 season! Here are some of the latest and greatest additions (Clockwise from upper right):

Lil Red Allamanda, Allamanda x 'Lil Red': a.k.a. Dwarf Purple Allamanda, this unusual Allamanda hybrid produces a near endless spring to fall procession of 3” wide deep red-purple trumpets all on a more compact and longer flowering plant. We trialed this plant last spring and were truly impressed with its smaller stature and excellent flower power! It grows to about 2-3' high but may get larger with age. Lil Red Allamanda makes an easy and rewarding container plant that is sure to add tropical flair to any sunny location.

Mango POPSICLE™ Kniphofia, Kniphofia 'Mango Popsicle' PP22968, EU35633: A vigorous repeat flowering Kniphofia or Red Hot Poker that produces densely packed clusters of rich mango-orange, hummingbird attracting, tubular flowers on sturdy 24-30” high stems held well above the narrow deep green succulent foliage. Mango POPSICLE™ Kniphofia has proven to have exceptionally reliably cold hardiness into zone 6 and excellent flower power making this clump-forming, heat loving, drought resistant perennial a wonderful addition to the garden, landscape, and as a low maintenance container specimen. Provide a full to mostly sunny location in well-drained soils for optimum vigor and flowering. Images courtesy of Terra Nova Nurseries, Inc., www.terranovanurseries.com, all rights reserved.

Red Clusters Bottlebrush Callistemon viminalis 'Red Clusters': Brilliant crimson red bottlebrush-like flowers are produced in summer often into fall to potentially year-round under warm tropical conditions and attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees. Red Clusters Bottlebrush is a vigorous freely flowering, naturally evergreen large shrub that can also be trained into a small tree form that matures to about 12' high by about 8' wide. In zone 8, the foliage may drop after hard freezes potentially reducing flowering and so this cultivar may be best grow in warmer winter climates like zones 9 and 10. They can also be enjoyed as container plants where not reliably hardy. Provide Bottlebrush with a full to mostly sunny site in an average to well-draining, fertile soil and they are moderately drought resistant once fully established. We offered this cultivar many years ago and so have loosely included it with our New for 2022 plant list.

Gold Crest Bluebeard, Caryopteris x 'Gold Crest' PP32310: You can grow this award winning Bluebeard for its foliage alone! The new bright yellow spring foliage retains its color throughout the growing season even in the hot and humid south. In late summer and fall, dense whorled clusters of deep violet-blue, nectar rich, tubular flowers are held above and among the wonderfully contrasting foliage. Gold Crest Bluebeard, a Caryopteris hybrid, was selected for its heat tolerant brilliant foliage, for its dense compact habit, and its pollinator attracting flowers. In zone 6 Bluebeard tends to act more like a clump forming die-back perennial and becomes more shrub-like where winters are milder, although, it benefits from a hard late winter or early spring pruning since it flowers on new growth. Somewhat drought resistant once well-established and prefers a sunny site in a well-drained soil for optimum vigor and flowering. Grows to about 2-3' high and wide. Won Best Pollinator Friendly Perennial for the Southeast in 2019 at the UGA Trial Gardens and was rated above a 4.5 out 5 at both Penn State(2021) and Mississippi State(2020) trial gardens as 2nd year perennials!
