Blue Star Amsonia tabernaemontana
3. Storm Cloud
Native perennials are trending, and Bluestar is the classic North American perennial! ‘Storm Cloud’ is a very exciting new variety that performs well for both northern and southern growers. In spring, new stems emerge near-black with leaves that are very dark green with silver veins. The stems stay dark throughout spring. Light periwinkle blue, star-shaped flowers completely cover the foliage in late spring, and rebloom for many weeks afterward. Although the main interest of this plant is in spring, it maintains a great garden presence throughout the summer and fall. Its wide, mounded habit lends itself well to be used in place of shrubs in the landscape. Younger plants will have more of a vase-like habit, but make sure to give this plant some space for when it reaches its mature size. This easy care, heat and humidity tolerant, deer resistant perennial is an excellent choice for gardeners looking for low maintenance or native perennials. 11C-South Click to display 'Storm Cloud' tag image 24'-30' 38'-42' 4-9 1 Gallon

4. 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

Coral Bells Heuchera
7. Dolce® Appletini
Continuing the trend of bringing flower performance back to Coral Bells, ‘Appletini’ is the perfect combination of lime foliage and red flowers. Medium sized, lime green leaves have a silver overlay that makes the foliage truly attractive. Its best feature is arguably its stunning flower color: dark rose red stems hold rich ruby red flowers, starting in early summer. This plant occasionally reblooms into fall. The bright foliage is the perfect addition to a perennial combination container or the front of the border. 4D-South Click to display 'Dolce® Appletini' tag image 18'-24' 24'-30' 4-9 1 Gallon White
8. Dolce® Silver Gumdrop
If you’re looking for a silver Heuchera to brighten up your shade area, you’ve found it. Unlike other silver Heucheras on the market, ‘Silver Gumdrop’ has vibrant pink flowers instead of the typical white or cream. Match it with its silver, iridescent leaves with a semi-glossy finish and you have a winning combination. ‘Silver Gumdrop’ is a smaller scale Heuchera, the perfect size for a container. Growers and gardeners alike will be pleased that it is a vigorous grower for its size. Its silver leaves take on a rosy blush overtone later in the season for additional interest.

This plant is a Heuchera villosa hybrid. The villosa species is a large, late blooming type that exhibits an increased tolerance of high heat and humidity over other species. Most produce cream flowers in midsummer, though they are grown more for their fantastic foliage. H. villosa is native to the southeastern United States.

9. Primo™ Black Pearl
If you’re going to choose just one Heuchera for your lineup, this is the one! Meet the new standard in black Heuchera. ‘Black Pearl’ forms an incredibly dense habit of shiny, jet black leaves with scalloped, ruffled edges. Each 4-4.5” leaf has rosy purple undersides, revealed with the intense ruffling of the leaves. Oldest leaves have a slight silver overlay. To top it off—‘Black Pearl’ keeps its intense black color even in full sun, instead of bleaching to brown. White flowers with pink calyxes appear in midsummer

10. Primo™ Pretty Pistachio
You’ll be impressed by this big and beautiful plant for both its flowering performance and its garden performance. Starting in spring, 4.5in wide leaves are chartreuse and mellow to lime green in summer. Huge, 5” wide clusters of medium pink flowers are produced continuously starting in midsummer and going until early fall. Flowers dry on the stems to a lovely raspberry color, extending the attractiveness of the plant. This plant preforms best in filtered sun, as too much sun will bleach the brightly colored leaves. 4D-South Click to display 'Primo™ Pretty Pistachio' tag image 8'-10' 28'-32' 4-9 1 Gallon White
Corydalis (Yellow) Corydalis lutea
11. Yellow Corydalis
Everything about this perennial is dainty and refined. Fresh green, fern-like leaves are held in softly falling tiers, resembling the fronds of Maiden-Hair Fern.

Beginning in late spring, clusters of light yellow to rich gold flowers, somewhat like those of the fringed bleeding heart, hover just above the foliage. Though blooming is heaviest in late spring, C. lutea will continue to produce flowers thru mid-fall if plants are kept moist. Use this plant in cottage gardens, shaded rock gardens, or in containers. Reseeds prolifically.

Daylily Hemerocallis hybrid 
12. 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

False Indigo Baptisia
14. Decadence® Vanilla Cream
Selected for its petite size and unique flowers, this cultivated looking native perennial fits easily into today’s suburban landscapes. Newly emerging spring foliage has a beautiful bronze cast which contrasts nicely with other spring green perennials planted nearby. As the foliage matures, it lightens to grey-green and forms a well-branched, full, rounded clump. Ten inch long spikes of pastel yellow buds open to creamy vanilla colored flowers from late spring into early summer. Seed pods begin to develop immediately after the plant is finished flowering, deepening in color and persisting into fall. This easy care, drought tolerant, deer resistant perennial is an excellent choice for gardeners looking for low maintenance or native perennials. 12C-North Click to display 'Decadence® Vanilla Cream' tag image 30'-36' 36'-41' 4-9 10" Black
Foamy Bells Heucherella hybrid
15. Catching Fire
If you’re looking for a bright-colored foliage plant, you’ve found it! Vibrant lime green leaves are rounded, giving it a refined presence in the garden. In the centers of each leaves are very defined flame-shaped markings that flare from the center like cherry red fire. In summer, these markings will deepen to mahogany. Cream flowers appear in early summer. This is a very polished, vigorous plant. For best foliage color and performance, plant in an area with filtered sun or afternoon shade.

‘Catching Fire’ is a H. villosa hybrid which means that it is naturally more heat and humidity tolerant and also has greater vigor than Heucherellas without such parentage. It forms a very dense mound of interesting foliage that is evergreen in most climates.

Each 5in large, deeply lobed leaf has burgundy red centers. The uniquely lobed leaves are almost finger-like, making it a great addition to both containers and the landscape. When temperatures increase, ‘Red Rover’ will mellow to more of an olive green. Burgundy rose stems hold creamy white flowers well above the foliage on tall scapes.

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
23. 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.

Similar in flower color and flower foliage to ‘Blue Eddy’, but in a much larger form.

Rose Mallow Hibiscus hybrid
35. Mars Madness
This new Walters Gardens, Inc. Hibiscus introduction is out of this world with its unique foliage and flower color combination. Dark olive green leaves have copper highlights, with the newest leaves emerging coppery purple. The large, maple-like leaves are broadly smooth and form a full, billowy habit.

Each flower has a small, darker red halo with overlapping petals and deeply impressed veins. Flowers are produced from the top to the bottom of the plant, rather than only at the top like some older cultivars.

‘Mars Madness’ is a later blooming Hibiscus and will extend the color of your late summer/early fall garden.

36. Mocha Moon
With the combination of dark foliage and white flowers, you can’t go wrong with this Walters Gardens, Inc. Hibiscus introduction. Huge 7-8”, slightly cupped pure white flowers have a scarlet red eye that bleeds a little way onto the slightly ruffled, overlapping petals. Flowers are produced from the top to the bottom of the plant, rather than only at the top like some older cultivars. The bright lime green carpels that hold the flowers contrast nicely with the deep bronze-green foliage. The thick, leathery, maple-like leaves form an upright and full clump that makes a fantastic specimen plant for sunny landscapes. 12B-North Click to display 'Mocha Moon' tag image 48' 5'6'-6' 4-9 10" Black
37. Plum Fantasy
This incredibly floriferous new Hibiscus sets buds at the top 6-7 nodes up the stems compared to the top 3-4 on average. Lipstick red buds open to very large 8-9”, vibrant magenta red flowers with a deeper red eye and red stamens. The texture of the flower petals is very unique compared to other Hibiscus—they are distinctly puckered and crinkled, giving them added dimension.

The dramatic flower color really pops against the super dark green, maple-like foliage which takes on a tint of greyed purple late in the season. ‘Plum Fantasy’ forms an upright rounded clump in the landscape and makes a fantastic specimen plant for sunny landscapes.

39. Summerific® Ballet Slippers
This new hardy perennial fits the need of providing a Hibiscus lineup with greater feminine appeal. Huge 7” wide, ruffled flowers are white with a deep red eye. The edges of the petals are edged with blush pink. Combined with the heavily overlapping petals, this creates a pinwheel effect on the flowers. Attractive, healthy leaves are bright green with slightly serrated edges. A polished, upright habit and extremely high bud count with good axillary branching ensures that this Hibiscus will have a longer season of color, from late summer through early fall. Flowers are produced from the top to the bottom of the plant, rather than just at the top like some other cultivars. ‘Ballet Slippers’ is the perfect backdrop or centerpiece for sunny borders. 12B-North Click to display 'Summerific® Ballet Slippers' tag image 48' 54'-5' 4-9 2 Gallon
40. Vintage Wine
We’ve come a long way from the tall, open habits of Hibiscus such as ‘Lord Baltimore’. From the Walters Gardens, Inc. Hibiscus hybridizing program is this brand new red-flowering variety. Near-black buds open to huge 7”, scarlet red flowers that shimmer in the sun with a darker red eye. The overlapping petals of ‘Vintage Wine’ have a crinkled texture and open completely with minimal cupping. Flowers are produced from the top to the bottom of the plant, rather than only at the top like some older cultivars.

Dark green, heart-shaped leaves form a densely upright, columnar clump. Use this incredibly dense variety as a focal point in your sun garden. 'Vintage Wine’ differs from ‘Cranberry Crush’ with the shape of its leaves, the tone of flower color (a warmer red), and the density of its plant habit. Walters Gardens, Inc. is committed to the best genetics, so we have discontinued ‘Fireball’ and ‘Lord Baltimore’ in favor of this improved variety.
