2-3'H Perennials

These medium height perennials usually remain in the 2 to 3 feet high range under most conditions. Use them behind and among lower growing perennials, as specimen plants near the middle of border, in front of medium sized shrubs and other taller perennials, and around tree form plants. Many of these will make nice container specimens for medium sized containers and in combinations in large and very large containers. Growing conditions and how well a plant is established may affect your plant's ultimate size. 

 

Ruffled deep fuschia purple falls are centered with lighter fuschia purple standards. Beautiful, full, nearly rounded flowers. A vigorous and hardy Louisiana Iris which multiplies readily in average garden soils, moist to wet soils, or can be set in water gardens where the container is just below the water's surface. Blooms March through May. Item# 1138.

The velvety medium green narrow foliage adorns an upright to arching easy to grow Salvia and develops into a fairly dense mound at full size. Provide a full to mostly sunny location in well-drained soils for optimum growth and flowering. Deer and rabbit resistant and moderately drought resistant once well-established. An excellent choice for migrating Monarchs, medium to large butterflies, and of course hummingbirds! Item# 11693

Dark Knight Bluebeard, Spiraea, Caryopteris

Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Dark Knight'

Dense whorls of nectar rich, purple to dark blue-purple, tubular flowers seemingly cover up the upper most portions of the plant for weeks beginning in mid to late summer and continuing into fall. Dark Knight Bluebeard, a.k.a. Black Knight, is a vigorous and easy sunloving free-flowering clump forming shrub-like perennial that quickly develops into a dense mound of fragrant and deer resistant gray-green foliage. In zones 5-6 it tends to act more like a clump forming die-back perennial and becomes more shrub-like where winters are milder although it benefits from hard late winter or early spring pruning since it flowers on new growth. Somewhat drought resistant once well-established and prefers a sunny site in a well-drained soil for optimum vigor and flowering. Item# 12117
