Anemone × hybrida Wild Swan™ 'MACANE001' is a long-blooming, compact, floriferous new anemone with lovely lavender coloration on the reverse side of the petals. Wild Swan begins flowering an average of two months earlier than other varieties and keeps on trucking until the end of the season. Flowers are held high and proud, allowing them to catch gently on the breeze. A graceful beaut to be sure!

Caryopteris × clandonensis Blue Empire™ 'Elst01' PPAF

blue mist shrub, bluebeard

According to Plantipp, the motto of this stunning, new Caryopteris is big, blue & beautiful! We found that to be true in our own trial gardens here at North Creek. Its powdery grey-green foliage is the perfect skirting to present the long wands of stacked deep blue flowers. The flowers are bigger than other Caryopteris that we have trialed with long wands lasting weeks on end. It is a wonderful addition to the landscape or container garden + excellent for cut flowers. Superior low growing habit.

Coreopsis tripteris 'Gold Standard'

tall tickseed

This accession of C. tripteris was collected by Mt. Cuba Center in the wild and shows better garden performance than the straight species. This plant is approximately 1’ shorter and blooms for an additional six weeks. The flowers were also born on shorter, secondary growth. This characteristic distributed the floral display throughout the entire plant rather than solely at the top.

The cultivar name of 'Gold Standard' was assigned at the completion of the trial due to this selections superior performance compared to the straight species.  Mt. Cuba Center Coreopsis Trial 2015

It is low and tidy and gently fills an area with its fragrant foliage. 'Azure Rush' is generously covered with light blue 2.5 inch blooms. Everything that you have come to love and anticipate from 'Rozanne' is true + improved by her lighter blue daughter.

Monarda punctata

spotted beebalm, dotted horsemint

A valuable ecological species, Monarda punctata is the equivalent of a juice bar at the gym for nectar loving/needing insects! BONUS, it also resists all other kinds of mites that could impact the bees because it is incredibly high in thymol. If you are in the area where the endangered Karner Blue still resides, you will be helping restore them to safe status by planting a stand of Monarda punctata, as this is their food mothership.

Tricyrtis formosana 'Gilt Edge'


‘Gilt Edge’ is a compact form with variegated foliage that typically grows in a clump to 12-24” tall, but will spread over time to 36” wide. Ovate to lanceolate, stem-clasping leaves (4-6” long) have (as suggested by the cultivar name) irregular creamy white to chartreuse margins. Leaves generally remain attractive throughout the growing season. -Missouri Botanical Garden
