Mango Yellow Trumpet Creeper

Campsis radicans 'Mango Yellow', Bignonia radicans, Tecoma radicans

Clusters of 4" long pastel orange-yellow tubular flowers adorn this vigorous native vine throughout summer. Trumpet Creeper is an excellent choice for hummingbirds and we thought it was appropriate to name this naturally occurring Almost Eden selection after the Green-Breasted Mango Hummingbird just in case they get to visit one in your yard. Trumpet Creeper's vigor, tolerance of poor soils, and durability lend it to use in difficult sites. Use as an espalier, allow it to climb a sturdy fence, or cover an arbor. Item# 11374

Marine Blue Salvia, Germander Sage

Salvia 'Marine Blue', S. chamaedryoides 'Marine Blue')

Dainty deep azure blue two-lipped tubular flowers are produced throughout the warmer months of the year, spring-fall, with some flowers basically year round in areas with mild winter climates. Considered to be an Australian hybrid of Germander Sage, Salvia chamaedryoides (some sources still list it as a selection) Marine Blue Salvia flowers over a much longer period on a slightly more vigorous plant but with the same gray-green fragrant foliage of the species. This is a compact growing plant that will slowly and unaggressively spread by root suckers and it will be happiest in a well-drained soil in a full to mostly sunny position. Item# 11686

The upright to arching stems are brightly adorned with hanging clusters of sunny yellow tubular flowers beginning in late spring and continuing until late summer. Mersea Yellow Pine-Leaved Penstemon or Beardtongue is a selection of the native Penstemon pinifolius whose upright to arching stems are adorned with fine 1" long narrow deep green foliage that arises from what can become a woody base. Pineleaf or Pine-Leaved Penstemon is native to the dry desert regions of SE Arizona and SW New Mexico but is tolerant of moist conditions provided it has a very well-drained sandy to rocky mineral soil. It has been reported to be hardy into zone 3 but may require a 'dry' mulch and a protected area. We are hopeful that since this cultivar was developed in England that it will do well in the humid Southeastern US. Item# 11928

Fiery orange, yellow, deep cobalt blue along with reds and near purples adorn the large showy flowers and bracts which are produced mainly during spring and fall as well as in winter in areas with mild tropical climates or where grown indoors. In almost all regards the Narrow-Leaved Bird of Paradise resembles its more common cousin the Orange Bird of Paradise, although this one is more resistant to drought and has reduced its leaf blades to the point where, once the plant is mature, only the narrow, rush-like, blue-green petioles remain with which to endure the desert conditions from which it arises. It is considered to be more drought resistant and prefers well-draining soils. Makes for an unusual container specimen or use it similarly to the Orange Bird of Paradise as an informal hedge, shrub, or specimen plant. Item# 11139
