Hakonechloa macra 'Albovariegata'

White-striped Hakone grass

This exceptionally elegant grass deserves a spot in every garden with its graceful habit and easy culture. Narrow stripes of creamy white accent each deep green leaf, providing a bright glimmer as the leaves sway gently in the breeze. Taller than other selections, 'Albovariegata' is also more vigorous and should be planted in groups of three or more for best effect. It is very tolerant of sun if the soil does not dry out, but may be happiest in a bright shaded spot. Airy flowers appear in late summer as the foliage becomes tipped in pink.

Hakonechloa macra 'Albovariegata'

Helenium 'Mardi Gras'

Sneezeweed

Helenium 'Mardi Gras' produces a festival of multicolored blooms to jazz up the garden for six to eight weeks in mid to late summer. Yellow petals are lavishly edged with bright orange-red, aging to clear red edged in gold, all surrounding deep chestnut cones. Gorgeous in a pot! Great as a cut flower, its long stems are sturdy and vase life is long. Heleniums are naturally resistant, even toxic, to deer and rabbits. An early pinch back helps promote branching.

Helenium 'Mardi Gras'

Helenium autumnale

Common sneezeweed

Our local native with yellow or bronze single daisy-like flowers on stout branched stems in late summer. Petals have distinct tooth-like indentations; hence the common name, dog-toothed daisy. All sneezeweeds have three-lobed petals which distiguish them from Rudbeckia and other yellow coneflowers. Brown, rust colored fruit appear in fall. Great for cut flowers and the avid butterfly gardener.

Helenium flexuosum 'Tiny Dancer'

Sneezeweed

Helianthus 'Lemon Queen'

Helianthus salicifolius 'First Light'

Willowleaf sunflower

An explosion of golden yellow flowers combined with a manageable height makes this a superior selection. Despite its name, this plant can be found literally blanketed in flowers in the late summer and into the fall when most other Helianthus are past. Flowers form on upright, self-supporting stems but instead of the typical tall sunflower, Helianthus 'First Light' forms a nice, compact clump of fuzzy, linear leaves topping out just above 3 feet.

Helianthus salicifolius 'First Light'

Helianthus salicifolius 'Low Down'

Willowleaf sunflower

So, you've never grown this sunflower because it is impossible to keep in a container, right? Not any more! This diminutive version reaches only 18" by the time it blooms, but has the flower power of its 8' cousins. No pinching, staking or cussing required! A great addition to the front of the border for late summer and fall color.

Helianthus salicifolius 'Low Down'

Helianthus × multiflorus 'Sunshine Daydream' Garden Candy™

Many-flowered sunflower

'Sunshine Daydream' was found as a branch sport of 'Capenoch Star'. This selection has fully double blooms with petals that re-curve toward the stem. 'Capenoch Star' has small, true sunflower-like blooms. This selection has also been compared to 'Flore Pleno'. 'Sunshine Daydream' has fully rounded, dahlia-like blooms that are smaller in diameter, but much more numerous in quantity. In comparison to 'Loddon's Gold', the blooms of 'Sunshine Daydream' have a much more pincushion or dome-like appearance and a more uniform shape. This selection is also the most golden-yellow of the three.
