Bee Balm (Eastern) Monarda bradburiana
1. Bradburn's Eastern Beebalm
Monarda bradburiana is a central US native (Iowa south to Texas) deserving of much more widespread acclaim. First, Monarda bradburiana is a deciduous clump-former that doesn't take over the garden like many monardas. Second, it doesn't get mildew...at least not in our hot, humid climate, and third...it's the earliest monarda to flower. Monarda bradburiana makes an 18" tall x 4' wide cushion of menthol scented foliage topped, starting in early May, with terminal, light pink spotted, gaillardia-like flowers that are a magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds. Monarda bradburiana remains attractive with fascinating dried seed heads long after the flowers fade...superb! 9C-North Click to display 'Bradburn's Eastern Beebalm' tag image 16"-18" 24"-36" 5-8 8" Green
Bleeding Heart (Fern-leaf) Dicentra eximia x peregrina
2. Fire Island
Though it may look similar to ‘Burning Hearts’ at first glance, once you grow the new ‘Fire Island’ you’ll understand the difference. You’ll quickly appreciate ‘Fire Island’ for its more vigorous growth rate, bushier habit, earlier flowering, and increased flower production. This sun loving alpine type of bleeding heart has been extremely popular since its introduction into the US.

Flaming magenta red, heart-shaped flowers with white tips are produced in clusters above the very finely textured, frosty blue foliage from late spring into midsummer. Two added bonuses with this new selection: it is more disease resistant and does not produce seed, helping it to bloom longer into summer.

Bluestem (Little) Schizachyrium scoparium
3. Blue Paradise
This ornamental grass is a result of an extensive Schizachyrium breeding program from Walters Gardens, Inc. and is the perfect option for those looking to add to their native or prairie garden. The habit is very upright and columnar, and maintains its upright habit through fall. At 3½ feet tall, this grass will be the perfect backdrop to your garden. True to its name, ‘Blue Paradise’ has striking silvery blue stems in summer. In the fall, this grass takes center stage as the leaves develop a deep wine purple color. In early fall, tiny tan seed heads appear on the top half of the stems. 12C-South Click to display 'Blue Paradise' tag image 36"-42" 24"-28" 3-9 8" Green
Clematis (large flower) Clematis
4. Corinne
This beautiful clematis has white flowers with ruffly edges and a pink/violet stripe on each petal. This compact, heavy bloomer is great for patio containers as well as the garden. It can be grown in full sun to partial shade making it a great addition. It grows to a height of 6' and blooms June through August. Pruning type 2. 12B-South Click to display 'Corinne' tag image 5'-6' 24"-36" 4-9 10" Green w/ Trellis
5. Diana's Delight
Diana’s Delight has beautiful, rich blue colored flowers with light and dark tones and a creamy yellow center. This lovely clematis has a very free flowering habit. It grows to a height of 6 feet and blooms June through early September. Stunning! Pruning type 2 or 3. 12B-South Click to display 'Diana's Delight' tag image 5'-6' 24"-36" 4-9 10" Green w/ Trellis
Daylily Hemerocallis hybrid 
6. Passionate Returns
From renowned daylily breeder Darrel Apps comes what he considers his best overall quality rebloomer to date. An everblooming daylily, ‘Passionate Returns’ blooms for about 3½ months beginning in early July in zone 5. Four inch, rosy red, ruffled flowers have perfect form. Flowers are held just at the top of the foliage, with multiple branched scapes and lots of buds to make it extremely floriferous in the landscape. Its short stature and continuous flower show makes this the perfect daylily for growing at the front of the border and in containers. 10C-South Click to display 'Passionate Returns' tag image 17" 18"-24" 4-9 8" Terra Cotta
Ginger (Canadian Wild) Asarum canadense
7. Canadian Wild Ginger
A highly popular groundcover, Wild Ginger's large heart-shaped leaves can be 6" in diameter, and its sturdy rootstocks create a dense network that creeps to cover woodland slopes. Once established, a cover of Wild Ginger can fend off Garlic Mustard and other invasive in the woodland environment. As a woodland native this deer resistant plant enjoys shade and tolerates a variety of soil types. An attractive dark red flower, usually hidden from view by the foliage, blooms in early spring and fades fairly quickly. 11C-South Click to display 'Canadian Wild Ginger' tag image 6"-12" 6"-12" 4-6 8" Green
Hosta Hosta hybrid
8. Afterglow
This new hosta features a striking yellow margin surrounding the large, green, heart-shaped leaves and forms an impressive upright mound in the landscape. In early summer, pale lavender, funnel-shaped flowers top the clump.

This large hosta is best used as a specimen in the garden and it combines beautifully with ferns, Corydalis, and sedges.

9. Curly Fries
This irresistible miniature to small sized hosta is the perfect accompaniment for bright blue hostas like ‘Prairie Sky’, especially when planted together in containers or near the front of the border. It forms an arching, wiggly clump of extremely rippled, narrow leaves. Position this hosta where it will receive morning sun, as its chartreuse foliage will be brightest there. Mature plants will develop red speckled petioles. Lavender flowers top the clump in midsummer. 12B-North Click to display 'Curly Fries' tag image 28" 40" 3-9 8" Terra Cotta
10. Fire Island
A small to medium sized hosta that is hard to miss in the spring garden. The leaves emerge brilliant yellow on red petioles; red coloring extends from the base of the petiole up into the leaves. As the season progresses, the foliage darkens to chartreuse, but the red petioles remain all season long.

The broadly ovate leaves are slightly corrugated with distinctly rippled margins at maturity. Lavender flowers are produced in midsummer. Vigorous grower; best in full shade.

11. June Spirit
This hosta forms a distinctive mound of shiny leaves with wide, deep green margins and chartreuse centers that turn yellow in summer if planted in part sun.

Lavender blue flowers appear on chartreuse scapes in mid to late summer.

12. Mini Skirt
This petite and flirty hosta forms a miniature mound of very wavy, thick, blue-green leaves with creamy yellow margins in spring. In summer, the center turns more green and the edge lightens to creamy white. Pale lavender flowers with deeper purple stripes appear closely packed together on short, very proportionately sized scapes in early to midsummer.

Show this cute mini hosta off in troughs and other patio containers with good drainage, or plant it right near the edge of the border where it's sure to be seen.

13. Pocketful of Sunshine
This cute small hosta grows quickly to form a compact clump of thick, rugose, distinctly cupped leaves that are yellow with broad, deep green margins at maturity. The centers of the leaves are chartreuse in spring and brighten as the season progresses.

Light lavender flowers are produced in early to midsummer.
