Sedum Rupestre – Angelina

Sedum Angelina is a drought tolerant, succulent ground cover which is actually from the genus Petrosedum. The chartreuse leaves stay under 6 inches and are evergreen, providing winter interest in areas without snow cover. These do not flower like other sedum and are very tough and hardy here in zone 4. They are not bothered by pests or disease and if you get too much they are easy to remove. Nice in pots too as they will cascade.

These will arrive bare root. You will get a nice bunch of them. As with most sedums they are very easy to propagate. At least some of the ones that you receive will have roots, plant those but also plant any small or long pieces and they will grow. You need to water then until they are established but after that no supplemental care is needed unless you live in the desert.

Hosta June

‘June’ is a ‘Halcyon’ sport and has lovely gold centered leaves with wide blue-green margins and excellent pest resistance and substance. The plant was discovered in TC and introduced by the British company Neo Plants in 1991. It is more apt to hold its color in cooler climates but may fade where it is warmer. It is one of the last hostas to go into dormancy. Flowers are lavender. The sports from ‘June’ include: ‘Kiwi Gold Star’, ‘May’, ‘English Sunrise’ (Prev. all gold). ‘Remember Me’ (white-centered), and ‘Touch of Class’ (tetraploid form). There is some debate about whether there is more than one sport being sold under the ‘June’ name. Certainly the plant responds to the season and to the prevailing light conditions very readily.

Daylily Valley Monster

By L.K. Powell – 1983

This 33 inch tall dormant, tetraploid has a big, yellow, 9 inch flower.  It is a mid-season bloomer that reblooms in the late season.  It’s not registered as such but it does have a red blush on the ends of the petals that blends inwards, and has a bright green throat.  The cinnamon blush can be darker or more pale and sometimes the petals curl back so much that you may not notice it unless you view it from the side.

Iris MTB Joseph’s Coat

By E. Tankesley – 1930

This historic miniature tall bearded iris is a sport of Honorabile. It was originally registered as TB but today is considered MTB. The standards are both white and yellow but are irregularly splotched and streaked, with no two being the same pattern.  The falls too can differ in their color and pattern but are usually splashed with yellow, purple, and red; the coat of many colors. This type of pattern is called a “broken” pattern. The beards are lemon yellow.  It stands about 20 inches tall and is a mid-season bloomer. Although it has been around since the 1930’s it was not introduced until 1989 by A. Katkamier. It is a fast grower and is very hardy. This iris was mixed up while naming in the 30’s with Kaleidoscope.  That one also has a broken pattern but is a little more yellow in general. For this reason you will sometimes see it called Joseph’s coat Katkamier.
