1-2'H Perennials

These perennials usually remain in the 1 to 2 feet high range under most conditions. They are still low enough for the front of perennial border, garden, and landscape and some of the rhizomatous species will make low to medium height groundcovers. Their tidy habits also lend them to use as fillers and spillers for container specimens and in combinations for small to medium sized containers. Growing conditons and how well a plant is established may affect it's ultimate size.

 

Compact, repeat flowering, and reliably hardy to zone 6! Large rounded clusters, to 4-5" across, composed of blue trumpets are perched atop strong 2' sturdy stems on a tight clump forming plant with upright to arching narrow rich green foliage. Little Galaxy Agapanthus boasting a more compact habit than its sisters in the Galaxy series making it suitable as a low maintenance container specimen or nearer the front of the border. Its flowers are a touch lighter blue than those of Galaxy Blue. The Galaxy Agapanthus series has been successfully trialed for over 7 years in Zeeland, Michigan by the folks at Walter's Gardens with excellent reliability, vigor and cold hardiness. Flowering may begin in mid spring in zone 8 but will likely flower in summer where winters are coldest. The flowers attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

Lovely Lolly Coneflower, Echinacea

Echinacea 'Lovely Lolly' PPAF?

The 2020 #2 rated Echinacea at the Penn State Trial gardens! The very double, rich purplish-pink flowers are composed mainly of the ray flowers with almost no noticeable disk flowers and are held on 20-24" sturdy stems and are produced throughout the summer months on mature plants. Lovely Lolly Coneflower is a hybrid Echinacea that was selected for its unusual double flowers, sturdy branching habit, and long season of flowering that can begin in late spring and may last into fall under good conditions. Coneflowers are clump forming perennials whose often fragrant flowers are adored by butterflies, bees, and other pollinators that can be enjoyed as part of the sunny garden garden and landscape as well as container specimens. Periodic deadheading will keep the plants looking clean and may help promote continuous flowering. Leave some in fall and winter for the songbirds.

Luscious® Marmalade Lantana (medium mounder, orange shades)

Lantana camara 'G12166' PP27378, CAN 5309

A vigorous, free flowering powerhouse! The large rounded flower clusters seem to transition through every shade of orange deepening as they age into marmalade and cover the neatly mound forming plants from spring until frost attracting a variety of pollinators. Luscious® Marmalade Lantana is a University of Florida certified seed sterile selection with good vigor and a neatly mounded habit that lends itself to use as a specimen container plant, in mixed company, as well as for easy summer-long color in the sunny garden and landscape. The improved vigor makes the Luscious® Lantana series a better choice as a summer annual than some of the more dwarf varieties especially where the growing season is shorter or cooler. Being sterile means that the plants can spend more energy on flowering instead of fruiting and there is little chance of it escaping in areas where this is a concern. Provide a full to mostly sunny site in a fertile, average moist soil for optimum vigor and continuous flowering. Images courtesy of Proven Winners©, www.provenwinners.com, all rights reserved.

Maryland Goldenaster

Chrysopsis mariana

Maryland Goldenaster is a clump forming native perennial whose silky-edged rosette of foliage is barely noticed much of the year but in fall it bursts into color producing a multitude of 18-24" stems that are topped by large clusters of nearly 1" wide golden yellow daisies.

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
