Sedum Telephium – Autumn Joy

When the rest of the garden is winding down, Autumn Joy is just getting started in fall with bright coral/pink flowers that later turn a beautiful rust color for winter interest.  This hardy perennial is drought tolerant and not fussy about soil conditions as long as it is not too wet. The plants are just short of 2 feet tall and will form 2 foot wide clumps.  The little mounds of foliage are also interesting in spring.  All the care that is needed is to remove the old stalks near the ground in early spring before new growth starts.  Bees also love this plant and it provides food for them when there isn’t much else.  Sedum needs full sun.

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.




Pulmonaria saccharata—Mrs. Moon

This plant has nearly everything going for it including multiple names.  It is also called Lungwort or Bethlehem Sage.  Pulmonaria has pretty pink bell shaped flowers appearing in April and May, then turn blue as they age.  But even after the flowers are gone the leaves bring beauty to the garden.  They are fuzzy and green and have white or silver spots.  The leaves are semi-evergreen, persisting well after frost.  If they start to look ragged just remove them and new ones will fill in.  The plant is only about 10 inches tall but spreads to form a patch.  This tough plant tolerates sun or shade and very dry or over wet conditions.  It also is deer and rabbit resistant.  Note:  Although this is a super tough plant and does well shipping bare root, you should know that it is one that wilts when it is dug.  So, it will arive without foliage and should be planted as soon as possible and watered regularly until established.



Daylily Freedom Ring

By Wild – 1969 or DeGroot – 2002

This beauty is a dormant diploid that sports 6 ½ inch blooms atop 30 inch scapes.  The coral pink blooms are softly blended with cream.  There is some confusion with this plant because there is also a Platinum Palette Freedom Ring.  If you look at the photos given by the American Hemerocallis Society they look similar, but many of the photos for both cultivars are pictured by other growers as a much more coral flower without the cream colored lower petals.  The difference should be that Platinum Palette has a slightly larger flower and is also fragrant. The actual plant that I am selling is as pictured, and though it was sold to me as “Freedom Ring”.  I believe it is probably “Platinum Palette Freedom Ring”.  I will check for fragrance with the next bloom and amend this description if necessary. Confusion aside, this is a gorgeous bloom that performs well here in the far north.
