A plant introduced from the Mt. Cuba Center for the Study of Piedmont Flora, in Delaware. This plant has a more dwarf habit and chocolate-purple tones to the leaves and stems. Blooms in late summer with white flowers which can be used for cutting, although this Joe-Pye should be used almost exclusively for its colored foliage rather than blooms.
Ablaze with color all season long, Color Flash creates a mound of foliage that first emerges green, but then matures with striking shades of burgundy, purple and green, making it a colorful foliage plant throughout the growing season. The pink plumes sparkle against the brilliant foliage in early summer. Great for semishade gardens, mixed with other perennials, whether in mass or singly.
This great cultivar has frosty gray-blue foliage that really holds up well in the garden all season long. The rich, purple flowers are borne in clusters and open up one day at a time and bloom all summer long. A vigorous grower that looks good all season. You can grow spiderworts in well-drained to even boggy soils.
Blooming from late spring through late summer, this Shasta daisy has intriguing fringed, frilly flowers that are semi to fully double. Blooms are pure white in color, surrounding a yellow center. Deadhead all summer long to extend the bloom season.
Crazy Pink has a staggering number of lightly fragrant, daisy-like flowers and blooms for an extended period of time. Superior lateral branching assures a compact, sturdy plant that won't need staking. Deadheading will help to extend the bloom cycle but leave a few of the cones on in late summer as they provide food for finches and other birds. From ItSaul Plants.
This is a great sunny, spring perennial, which is quite drought-tolerant and cold hardy. If happy, it will self-seed, so it can become a good groundcover plant. Great for borders, masses, large rock gardens or to combine with daffodils or other smaller bulbs.
Dark Towers retains it dark wine red foliage throughout the season and produces pale pink tubular flowers that extended above the foliage. Adding rich color to the perennial border or mixed beds, this perennial will tolerate heat and humidity.
A two-tiered purple coneflower. A German selection with shorter petals on top of the cone and a 'skirt' of deep, rose pink petals at the base. May produce single flowers in the first year. From then on, they reliably produce double blooms. Prefers well-drained soils. Drought tolerant once established.
This sport of 'Blue Angel' has large, heart-shaped, blue green leaves with wide, creamy white margins. Pale lavender blossoms appear on 40" scapes in mid-summer. Selected by the American Hosta Growers Association as Hosta of the Year in 2009.
Small, 6" tall grass with attractive, fine-textured, blue foliage. A cool season grass hardy in Zone 4. Grown primarily for the foliage. In hot spells the foliage may brown out, but revives with the onset of cooler weather. Clump forming.
Also known as double daisy, it is a well known favorite in flower gardens. Red, white and pink flowers add lots of color to the spring garden. Combines well with spring flowering bulbs. Great in beds, borders, rock gardens and containers.
Fountains of narrow leaves with wide, pure white leaf margins spill over to form compact clumps. A shade-loving grass, 'Everest' is lovely planted along a path, adds an architectural element to containers and window boxes and also suitable for mass plantings.
When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!
Thank you to Zehr’s Flowers and Landscaping for doing such a great job on our flower beds and planting new trees!! It looks great!!
