Callisia rosea 'Morning Grace'

Piedmont roseling

This beautiful cultivar comes to us from Michael Jenkins. 'Morning Grace' has a dainty garden stature reaching just under a foot in height. Thin, strappy foliage remains a clean, medium green throughout the growing season. A very long bloom period, the triangular, light pink flowers have attractive gold stamens and rest just above the foliage.  Flowers are very attractive to pollinating insects.

Erigeron pulchellus var. pulchellus 'Lynnhaven Carpet'

Robin's plantain

This outstanding form of E. pulchellus was selected for its relatively large grey-green, pubescent foliage (4"), dense, mat-forming habit and astonishing ability to thrive in a wide range of challenging conditions. In early May, individual flower stalks give rise to lightly tinted lavender flowers with a yellow inner eye. Foliage remains less than 6" and forms a tight groundcover, while flowering stems top out at just over a foot tall. Originally found growing on the 27-acre property of Clarice Keeling of Virginia Beach, VA, 'Lynnhaven Carpet' was named after Virginia Beach’s Lynnhaven River by plantsman Charles Cresson. An easy to grow, carefree native perennial perfectly suited for moderate sunlight to full shade. Enjoy!

The variegated foliage and shorter growth habit differentiate 'Triple Play' from its parent species.  Clusters of pink flowers emerge in late spring, a stunning contrast to the creamy white-edged foliage.  In cooler temperatures (i.e. spring and fall), the white margins blush with pink color.  This unique selection will attract butterflies and hummingbirds, and works well as a cut flower.
