Hosta Frisian Pride (M) inspiring yellow-gold leaves reach upward, outward and back down to the ground creating a dense mound that you will see from across the garden. The edges of the leaves are rippled from the petioles down to a long pointed tip that further adds elegance to the clump
Iris germanica (Tall Bearded Iris). Grow from bulbs/rhizomes.There are hundreds of species with the majority blooming in spring & early summer. After 3-4 yrs. the clumps become crowded & don't bloom well. Dig them out & divide them to start new clumps.
Hosta 'Ice Follies' is a probable tetraploid mutation of the old standard, Hosta 'Antioch'. Hosta 'Ice Follies' is much smaller than its parent, forming a small 1' tall x 2' wide clump of pointed green leaves, with a very wide border that emerges gold and ages to cream.
Hosta 'Gypsy Rose' This cute plant was discovered as a mutation of the famed Hosta 'Striptease'. From our observations, Hosta 'Gypsy Rose' stays slightly smaller, making a 30" wide clump, but most importantly, the center pattern of the leaf is much brighter yellow than in Hosta 'Striptease', which is more light green.
Bergenia cordifolia 'Bressingham White' is a clump-forming evergreen perennial and is very useful ground cover. Unlike some of its relatives, 'Bressingham White' is a tasteful blush pink rather than a lurid candy floss colour carried on rhubarb-red stems. Even people who say they can't stand elephant's ears will like this cultivar. It makes around 45cm in height and spread and will tolerate sun or partial shade. I use them all the time when I'm designing gardens.
The Echinacea 'Summer Sun' is a brand new hybrid coneflower that blow you away with its intense color. The blooms first open up to a red-orange then slowly lighten to a golden orange. Plants are tall enough to mix into the perennial border growing a little over 3 feet in height but stay within their bounds very well with clumps growing to about 2 feet wide. The brightly colored, fragrant blooms are a butterfly magnet.
Liriope muscari 'Okina' (Okina Frosted Monkey Grass). A very cool selection of the clumping monkey grass. In spring, the top 75% of each leaf is pure white. As it matures through the growing season, the white becomes speckled with green flecks, eventually changing to flecked light green by fall (the coloration will hold better in cooler climates). In late summer, the clumps are topped with the typical stalks of lilac flowers. Truly a stunning plant that will stop visitors in their tracks!
