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.

 

Clusters of bright golden yellow upward facing daisies are produced atop sturdy stems emerging from the rosettes of rounded low growing deep green foliage in early(8B) to late spring or early summer(3) depending on your cold hardiness zone. Roundleaf Golden Groundsel, Packera obovata, is very similar to the cutleaf Golden Groundsel, Packera aurea, but is more tolerant of full sun as well as light shade and drier growing conditions. This stoloniferous native perennial develops into an evergreen to semi-evergreen mat of low rich green foliage and its flowers attract many early season pollinators, especially bees. Use Roundleaf Golden Groundsel as a groundcover in informal and naturalistic garden settings as well as in roadside plantings, meadows, and prairies. It is native to much of the central and eastern US.   Item# 12249

Slim Milkweed

Asclepias linearis

Rounded clusters of small white and green starry flowers emerge from the leaf axils in spring and summer from the seemingly delicate upright to arching stems. Slim Milkweed could easily be confused with Whorled Milkweed and the difference is that Slim has opposite leaves and is rhizomatous whereas Whorled Milkweed of course has whorled leaves and is clump forming. Exclusive to the coastal prairies and prairies of southeastern and southcentral Texas, Asclepias linearis does well in clay soils and in well-drained soils and has been one of the easiest and most reliable species for us to grow and so it should be for gardeners. The flowers provide fodder for Bumblebees and other native bee species and you can expect the foliage to be used by the Monarch, Queen, and Soldier butterfly caterpillars. Item# 11661

Light azure blue falls and standards are accented with darker veining and deep golden yellow bee guides.

The Southern Blue Flag is just as vigorous and hardy as the Louisiana Irises and will do well under similarly moist to wet to average moist soils in a full to mostly sunny site for optimum vigor and flowering. It can be set in water gardens where the container is just below the water's surface.
