Dark sturdy spikes are covered by smokey purple pea-shaped flowers with a darker purple eye in mid to late spring.

Purple Spider Azalea, Koromo Shikibu Azalea

Rhododendron x 'Koromo Shikibu'

Beautiful and unique spidery lavender flowers absolutely cover this semi-dwarf evergreen shrub in mid-spring attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. A rare evergreen Azalea, Koromo Shikibu, a.k.a Purple Spider, has a compact, medium-sized growth habit, excellent durability and reliability, and its unusual flower form make this a definite conversation piece. This Azalea lines the eastern border of the Ruby M. Mize Azalea Gardens at Stephen F Austin's Mast Arboretum and is a site to see in full spring flower. Azaleas do best in average moist, acidic soils that are rich in organic matter but have good to excellent drainage and should be top dressed with an organic mulch such as pine straw and pine bark. We recommend using a slow-release, non-burning fertilizer that is labeled for acidic loving plants. Item# 3110

The dainty 3/4" wide, iris-like flowers open a deep purple, lighten through mauve, and into light lavender shades and are produced for weeks in spring. Purple-Eyed Grass is a selection of one of our native Blue-Eyed Grasses, the Sisyrinchiums, that was originally shared with us by Dawn Stover, then of SFA Gardens and now with SFA's Pineywoods Native Plant Center. It has narrow strap-like upright to arching, deep green foliage in typical flat, iris-like fans on an evergreen, clump-forming perennial that readily multiplies into 6-10"H x 8-12"W plants. Use the Blue-Eyed Grasses, or Purple-Eyed in this case, near the front of the perennial border, tuck them among the rock garden as an accent, as an informal border along paths, as well as part of naturalistic settings with other plants of similar size. The flowers are likely mainly bee pollinated and the plants can reseed though it never seems do so aggressively and unwanted seedlings are easily removed. Provide a full sun to partly shaded site in average to well-drained soils. Easy and sweet. Item# 12907

Red Bleeding Heart Vine

Clerodendrum x speciosum, C. delectum

Large clusters of long-lasting, light lavender, mauve, to purple calyxes serve as the backdrop for the contrasting deep red, 1" wide, butterfly shaped flowers that are produced throughout the warmer months of the year, as early as midspring to about mid fall. The Red Bleeding Heart Vine, Clerodendrum x speciosum, is a naturally evergreen, heirloom, twining, tropical climber that is one of the better and more reliable flowering vines for shaded areas, although it can also take *full sun, if acclimated, where it may be even more floriferous, and it attracts butterflies and likely hummingbirds. I have always found it interesting that many of the butterfly and moth pollinated species in the genus Clerodendrum appropriately have butterfly shaped flowers. Provide the Red Bleeding Heart Vine with a moist to average moist, fertile, average to well-drained soil for optimum vigor and flowering. This is a hybrid of the White Bleeding Heart Vine, C. thompsonae, and the Flaming Glory Bower Vine, C. splendens.
