Daylily Creature of the Night

By Reed – 1999

This one often gets comments from visitors as it is very distinct.  It is a dark purple spider with large bright white midribs blending into a large star shaped throat that blends from cream to lemon yellow. Stamens the color of the petals set it off, and it usually has perfect form. It is 34 inches tall with a 7 inch bloom that has a spider ratio of 4:1. A dormant, diploid it holds it’s flowers into the night where the stars simply glow.

This stately, historic daylily is 66 inches tall and has a 3 inch trumpet shaped flower that is golden yellow with a rusty orange eye zone. It is a mid-season/late bloomer; one of the latest in my garden, and it also blooms into the night. A dormant, diploid, it is also supposed to be fragrant and it has nice st

Iris Boo

By Markham – 1971

They don’t come any cuter than Standard Dwarf Bearded (SDB) Iris “Boo”.  She doesn’t get any taller than 12 inches.  An amoena, which means that the standards are white and the falls are colored. In this case there is a crescent shaped purple spot on the falls with detailed veining and penciling near the beards, which are yellow. This cutie won the award of merit in 1976. They are early bloomers and you may want to get down close to smell the sweet fragrance.

Iris Blue Denim

By Warburton – 1958

I just love the color of this historic Standard Dwarf Bearded (SDB) Iris. It’s a true sky blue, the ruffled falls and standards are the same color but there is noticeable darker blue veining throughout and a yellow beard for accent.  This Iris pumila is about 12 inches tall and is great for the rock garden or front of the border.

Iris Cardinal

By Bliss, 1919

At three feet, this tall bearded iris is a Dominion seedling. It has perfect form and velvety texture.  Lavender standards and rose purple falls accented with yellow beards and white penciling, make this old but really good iris, one to have in your garden.  It is well branched and so it blooms for a long period. Zone 3.

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.

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.

Liatris spicata – Blazing Star

Liatris spicata is also known as Gayfeather, Blazing Star or Button Snakeroot

About two feet tall and hardy to zone 3, this native plant is easy, does not require watering, and is attractive to butterflies and pollinators.  Its violet flowering stalks are attractive in the summer garden featuring rounded fluffy blooms topping clumps of grassy foliage. The seed heads are also beautiful later in the season.  Just cut them if you don’t want seedlings or leave them for the birds if you don’t mind having more.

Grass – Calamagrostis Karl Foerster

Otherwise known as “Feather Reed Grass”, this hardy perennial grass is a vertical powerhouse in the garden at 3 to 4 feet tall.  It draws they eye upward and breaks up a daylily garden (for example) where everything is the same height and shape.  Weather used as a specimen or to naturalize in mass, it does equally well in a boggy area as it does in dry garden soil. It is one of the first to start growing in spring and one of the first to produce seed heads. The seed heads change colors throughout the season and hold through the winter. Karl is one of the best plants for winter interest in the garden. They are sterile so you won’t get seedlings all over the place and they are also great for arrangements. The way it moves in the wind is also spectacular.
