White Showers Mexican Petunia, Desert Petunia, Florida Bluebells, Mexican Bluebells

Ruellia brittoniana 'White Showers', R. simplex, R. tweediana

The large pure white trumpets are born freely from summer to fall on upright to arching plants with contrasting rich green glossy foliage. White Showers Mexican Petunia is a white sport of the sterile Purple Showers allowing the plants to spend more energy on an endless supply of white trumpets instead of adding unwanted seedlings to the garden. It does spread via rhizomes creating a tall, weed smothering, ground-covering mass of foliage and stems. This wonderful and vigorous selection produces slightly larger flowers and foliage than most other Mexican Petunias. Item# 10834

Grows To: 30-40"H x 12-18"W space at about 12" apart
Outdoor Light: Full sun, Mostly sunny, Part shade, Part sun

Willowleaf Eastern Bluestar

Amsonia tabernaemontana var. salicifolia

Only one of two Amsonia species to receive a 5-star rating in the Chicago Botanic Gardens trials! Showy clusters of light blue star-shaped 1" wide flowers are produced in spring atop sturdy stems cloaked in dark green willow-like foliage. The Willowleaf Eastern Bluestar has the same basic habit and growth requirements of the more common Eastern Bluestar, Amsonia tabernaemontana var. tabernaemontana, but with larger showier flower clusters that seem to cover the plant, a neat dense vase-shaped habit, and clean disease resistant foliage. An easy to grow, clump-forming native perennial that is tolerant of wet to average moist soils preferring a full to mostly sunny site in the garden and landscape. The flowers of Bluestars attract butterflies and hummingbird moths. Images courtesy of North Creek Nurseries, all rights reserved. Item# 11945

Outdoor Light: Full sun, Mostly sunny, Part shade, Part sun

Small dutchman's pipe shaped primrose yellow flowers with a dark maroon throat are produced in spring atop the hairy foliage and stems. The Wooly Ducthman's Pipevine is a twining perennial native vine typically found growing in moist sandy soils along stream banks and near other perennial water sources. Anytime that I have personally seen this vine in the wild it always seems to be eaten up by Pipevine Swallowtail caterpillars and it is an excellent native host plant for them. The Wooly Dutchman's Pipevine, Aristolochia tomentosa, is most abundant in the south central US from the eastern half of Texas to extreme western Georgia and north to the southern half of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and western Kentucky. Provide a full to partly sunny location in sandy or loamy soils with average moisture. Item# 11794

Grows To: 20-30'H (or as high as its supporting structure) reportedly to 70-100'H
Outdoor Light: Full sun, Mostly sunny, Part sun, Part shade, Filtered shade
