Southern Cross Ironweed

Vernonia 'Southern Cross'

A tidy 4' x 4' vase shaped mound of stems and airy dark foliage are covered by clusters of deep purple flowers in late summer. Southern Cross Vernonia is pretty enough in foliage but in full flower it is a star in the garden and the nectar rich flowers attract a myriad of pollinators and other garden beneficials. As the name implies, Ironweeds are tough as nails in the landscape and make long-lived clump forming perennials that require minimal maintenance or additional care once established. These native perennials are adaptable to a wide variety of soil types and are somewhat drought resistant once well-established. Developed by Brent Horvath of Intrinsic Perennial Gardens.

Susan Brigham Passion Flower, Passionvine

Passiflora 'Susan Brigham'

Huge pendant rich magenta colored flowers dangle below the rich green smooth tri-lobed foliage of this vigorous hybrid Passion Flower from summer to fall. Susan Brigham Passionvine is a Patrick Worley hybrid in the Tacsonia group named in honor of his mother. The up to 6" wide pendant flowers sport bright yellow anthers and a tiny fringe of deep purple filaments. It flowers best in full sun but in hot summer climates it will do best where it receives shade during the heat of the day. Susan Brigham is considered to be self-pollinating by some although most sources suggest it should be cross pollinated by another member of the Tacsonia group in order to produce the large elongated banana-shaped fruit filled with seeds surrounded by tropical tasting orange flesh. As yet it has done well in full sun through our Louisiana summers. The foliage is relished by Gulf Fritillary caterpillars (and most likely by butterflies of the Longwing group as well). Item# 11624
