Another numbered list. What can I tell you? I'm staying organized! The following plants are ones that you may not have planted, may not have even heard of before. I've had all of them in my garden at one time or another. I've linked each name to a photo and instructions on a catalog site. You may also be able to find some of them at a local nursery.
1. Crocosmia- I love the name of this plant. I love its bright red/orange color. It has a wonderful draping bloom and it is great in full sun. Easy to grow and multiplies.
2. Verbena rigida (Listed as Tuber Vervain). There are lots of verbenas so make sure you get this one. It has long, stiff, almost leafless flower stems and is great for mixing with other plants. Dark purple and can be grown from seed.
3. Catchfly- This is a bright pink wildflower that will self-seed year after year. It is wonderful in drifts.
4. Allium- Ornamental onion- Any variety will add color, height, shape, and smell to your flower garden.
5. Nigella, or "love in a mist"- This can be grown from seed, will self-seed, comes in a variety of colors and has a wonderful seed pod that is often used for crafts.
6. Hosta- Hadspen Blue- I recommend this particular one because sometimes you just need a great foliage plant that isn't green!
7. Canna- Some people do not like cannas because they spread, they are tall, and they are messy. Yes, yes, yes. They are also beautiful!!
9. Sedum- Autumn Joy is my favorite. It's easy to grow from cuttings. Once you have a plant you have the potential to fill your garden with the fall color!
10. Heuchera- Lots of special things about this whole little family- odd colors, interesting blooms. There is a heuchera for any little spot in your garden.
11. Cardinal Climber- This is a soft, delicate vine that will provide coverage for the summer, without being invasive. Hummers love it.
12. Moonflower vine- Need a reason to visit the garden at dusk? This is it! Blooms at night and smells wonderful!!
Go plant something!!
