The main source of perennials for our Landscape projects come from our very own Christina Farms nursery. Every year we like to add a few new perennials to our palette and this year is no exception. Here are just a few fun plants to look forward too!
Prunella ‘Summer Daze’ is an excellent perennial ground cover. A quick spreader it has a neat and tidy foliage which is covered in blooms mid summer. After blooming cut back blooms to get a second rebloom! Butterflies love it!
Digitalis ‘Dalmation Peach’ this beautiful digitalis is a showstopper! A soft peachy pink spike of blooms arrives midsummer. A short lived perennial but will self sow in the garden. Great for a cottage garden.
Peaonia ‘Coral Charm’ Peonies provide so much beauty with so little care. This little beauty is the perfect semi double coral pink flower. It makes a great cut flower! Plant it and you’ll be rewarded every spring!
Asclepias tuberosa, also known as Butterfly Weed, is not “new” to the industry. A gorgeous true orange flower. But if you want butterflies in your garden be sure to plant a few of these! Asclepias is the main food source for Monarch butterflies (that is a Monarch caterpillar in the photo). Asclepias are late to emerge but so worth the wait!
