Chrysogonum virginianum 'Superstar'

green and gold

This green & gold is sure to be a superstar on the bench and in the garden! Deep green, semi-evergreen foliage is topped with golden flowers in mid to late spring. It’s an easy native groundcover that blooms well and is a vigorous clump grower.

Coreopsis 'Red Satin' Permathread™

threadleaf

A superior selection for its sturdy upright stems, fine threadleaf foliage, and deep wine-red flowers that do not become “frosted” in the heat. Sterile flowers bloom all summer; cutting back will encourage rebloom until frost.  Beautiful in the perennial garden or as a special accent.

A brand new selection from Darrell Probst that is not to be overlooked!

Coreopsis 'Red Satin' Permathread™

Delosperma Fire SpinnerĀ®

Ice plant

Vibrant, bi-colored flowers with an inner band of purple-pink that transitions to a glowing orange. The spreading, mat-like carpet makes an excellent groundcover that is heat and drought tolerant. Your garden will be spinning with excitement from late spring into summer! A South African plant brought back to the States by Panayoti Kelaidis of the Denver Botanic Garden and introduced by Plant Select®. Blooms best after vernalization.

Lavandula x intermedia 'Phenomenal'

A uniform plant both in production and the garden. Extremely tolerant to heat & humidity with superior winter survival and hardiness to Zone 4 - this lavender has been tested in several locations in Minnesota and Michigan with excellent results. Also resistant to common root and foliar diseases. Blooms best after vernalization. Developed & introduced by Peace Tree Farm.

With remarkable fragrance and flower presentation above uniform mounds of silvery foliage in spring and summer, it is truly 'Phenomenal' for fresh and dried flower arrangements, oils, and culinary delights – and of course, the perennial border or patio container!

Required breeder tags must ship with all orders.

Leucanthemum x superbum 'Ice Star'

Bright, double white flowers reminiscent of mums stand tall above lush, bluish green foliage from late spring through summer.  An interesting and beautiful alternative to the traditional daisy form. From Ball/Darwin and introduced by Florexpo.

Lobelia cardinalis 'Black Truffle'

cardinal flower

Wonderful in the perennial border and perfect for rain gardens, this cardinal flower is sure to stand out with its dramatic, dark chocolatey-purple foliage and bold red flowers. Superior to other dark-foliaged Lobelias on the market, 'Black Truffle' holds this deep color throughout the growing season. A magnet for hummingbirds and butterflies all summer, but deer tend to leave it alone. Introduced by Peter Heus and brought to market by Angela Treadwell-Palmer of Plants Nouveau.

Lobelia cardinalis 'Black Truffle'

Nepeta 'Novanepjun' Junior Walker™

catnip

The non-reseeding progeny of 'Walker's Low'. This low-growing, compact catmint packs a punch of lavender-blue flowers from late spring through summer over aromatic blue-green foliage. Its tidy habit is ideal for mixed containers, the perennial border, and along paths and walkways. A Star Roses & Plants introduction.

Panicum 'Cape Breeze'

switchgrass

North Creek is proud to bring Panicum 'Cape Breeze' to the market. Fantastic foliage stays green until Halloween! From production to the landscape, this grass truly is a breeze. Selected for upright habit, compact size and early flowering. Its perfect, tidy stature combines the toughness of seaside Panicum with the neatness of garden worthy cultivars. Great texture and movement in the landscape!

Panicum 'Cape Breeze'

Physostegia virginiana 'Pink Manners'

obedient plant

Tubular flowers in shades of lavender-pink adorn this taller sport of 'Miss Manners' from midsummer through autumn. As expected, it holds an upright, clump forming habit with attractive medium green foliage and grows to 36” tall and 20” wide. An adaptable and easy-to-grow native in zones 3-9, the strong stems do not require staking. Truly a clump forming variety that has proven to be less aggressive than 'Vivid'!

Physostegia virginiana 'Pink Manners'

Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Little Goldstar'

This knee-high performer is a knockout in the landscape! Selected for copious floral display and dwarf habit with increased manageability, this variety has excellent branching and forms a tidy, compact clump. A bit more floriferous than 'Goldsturm', flowers are held high above rich green foliage and bloom from July into October.

Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Little Goldstar'

Schizachyrium scoparium 'Standing Ovation'

Little bluestem

A warm season grass that does well in poor, dry soils.  Spikey bluish-green stems and leaves transition to a sizzling display of oranges, reds, yellows, and purplish-browns in the autumn.  Also provides winter interest before cutting back in early spring to make way for new growth.

Schizachyrium scoparium 'Standing Ovation'

Sporobolus wrightii 'Windbreaker'

big sacaton

Formerly named 'Mesa Form', this statuesque prairie dropseed comes to us from the breeding efforts at the Los Lunas Plant Materials Center in NM. Originally bred to be a wind barrier, this form has a commanding presence with its sturdy, upright habit, medium green, strap-like foliage and very showy flower spikes that appear come summer. An herbaceous alternative to expensive fencing, 'Windbreaker' is also a terrific native substitute for pampas grass.

Sporobolus wrightii 'Windbreaker'

Veronica 'Whitewater'

Speedwell

Dainty, pure white flowers dot this dense groundcover from early spring to midsummer, providing a nice backdrop for spring bulbs. Glossy, dark green foliage turns burgundy to bronze in fall. Hardy enough for containers, and evergreen in mild climates.
