Salvia - Plumosa

The Salvia ‘Plumosa’, Salvia nemorosa, has glowing purple stems loaded with deep, double purple flowers that bloom from June to October. With its gray-green basal leaves and aromatic foliage, it makes an attractive accent all summer long. It has a plant height of 18” and a spread of 18-24” and stays in excellent compact form. Salvia ‘Plumosa’ should be planted in full sun in a moist well-drained area. To increase bloom time, it should be cut back after the first bloom. ‘Plumosa’ is a magnet for butterflies, bees and hummingbirds and is deer-resistant. It is hardy for container gardening and provides excellent cut flowers. Blooms look wonderful next to Sedum ‘Matrona’, Achillea 'Coronation Gold' and Saliva ‘Snow Hill’. ... additional information

 

Hibiscus - Crown Jewels - UPSS 11,857 P2 The Hibiscus 'Crown Jewels', is the smallest of the Flemings series. With a plant height of 2' and 10" blooms, it is one not to miss. The creamy white flowers have red centers and dark violet 'maple-cut' leaves. All of these features make it one of the finest. 'Crown Jewels' took over 20 years to develop and refine the species and one can see why. It is best to plant this Hibiscus in a full sun area and it will tolerate most soil types. 'Crown Jewels' looks wonderful with grasses, as a background plant or with Hibiscus 'Old Yells' and Hibiscus 'Torchy' or as an alternative plant to Hibiscus 'Disco Belles'. (UPSS 11,857 P2).
