Siberian Iris Butter and Sugar

By McEwen 

Iris Siberian Butter and Sugar

A historic iris, being the first of it’s kind – a yellow siberian.

This Siberian iris has creamy white standards and butter yellow falls. They are about 28 inches tall and bloom like crazy in between the time when the bearded iris and the daylillies are blooming. They enjoy moist soil but will do fine in a garden setting. Hardy to zone 3 they are attractive to butterflies but resistant to deer and rabbits and will mature to a large flowering clump in a few years.

Iris Intermediate Loreley

By Goos and Koenemann -1906

This historic iris was registered as a TB but is now considered IB. It is really hardy and thrives on neglect. The name comes from the siren of the Rhine who with her song enchanted sailors and lured them to their death.

The standards are a glowing yellow while the falls are a velvety violet with distinct white and yellow veining and butter yellow edges. The beard is lemon yellow.

This plant is a vigorous grower with healthy foliage tinged at the base. Also a heavy bloomer. Cheerful!!

Iris TB Flavescens

By De Candolle – 1813

Iris Flavescens

This historic tall bearded iris originally appeared in the 1910 Biltmore Nurseries catalog. It is a wild collected variety that is thought to be a naturally occurring hybrid. It was however once thought to be a separate species. A vigorous grower which flowers well and will persist even if not cared for. It is 30 inches tall. 

Falls and standards are pale yellow with light olive veining while it seems to glow with a more buttery yellow inside. It has lemon yellow beards and it is also fragrant!

Daylily Fooled Me

By Reilly-Hein, 1990

This sturdy dormant tetraploid is a fast grower and has beautiful foliage growing to about 2 feet tall. 

The flowers also have heavy substance and are abundant and held above the foliage but not too tall. This is why they are considered “extended bloom” which means the flowers last all night and into the next day. The 5.5 inch blooms are golden yellow with  a red picotee edge and eye zone and a green throat. Perfect form; round with a little pie crust edge, rounds out the package.

This award winning mid season bloomer is a dormant tetraploid.

Troleus Europaeus – Globe Flower

From the Ranunculaceae or buttercup family this European native is hardy to zone 3 but shouldn’t be planted south of zone 6.

Globe Flower – Troleus

It is about 2 feet tall but it will be taller in shade and forms nice mounded clumps from which the long stems arise. They sport 2 inch yellow flowers in May to July, but will often rebloom in fall if they like their spot. The flowers start out globe shaped (hence the name) and then open to a cup shape with cool bright yellow stamens popping out.

They defiantly like a rich moist soil but will do fine in a garden setting. They like cool weather rather than hot and dry and will do well in sun (morning is better) to part shade. Cut them back in mid summer when the foliage starts to spot and new fresh foliage will grow.

They are rabbit and dear tolerant so you can plant these if your hostas are getting eaten and they are nice with ferns and astilbe.

Daylily Farnsworth Spider

Unregestered

Daylily Farnsworth Spider

This 3 foot tall spider has stems strong enough to hold up the large bunch of buds and 6.5 inch flowers that it produces. The bright yellow spiders have a cranberry blending to purple, star shaped eye zone and just a shadow of the eye zone on the lower petals. 

Dormant Diploid.

Cup Plant – Silphium perfoliatum

cup-plant-stems1Cup Plant is a large native prairie plant that catches water at the base of its wide large leaves.  The height of its strong square stem depends on how much moisture it gets but average is 6 feet. Birds and insects enjoy the water, but those that drown are actually absorbed by the plant making it “carnivorous”.  In summer, yellow daisy like flowers are held high atop the stems and smaller clusters emerge at the leaf margin. This plant is great in the prairie or meadow. It can be used in the garden as a tall accent but be sure to give it the space that it will need and remove seed heads to prevent too many babies.

Baptisia Tinctoria

baptesia-solar-flare1This native prairie plant is smaller than the better known blue indigo.  This is good for a landscape setting as the height is still over 2 feet with a 2 to 3 foot spread.  This plant is a member of the pea family with yellow pea like flowers.  The plant produces beneficial bacteria from its roots called rhizobia.  Baptisia blooms from late July through August and is hardy from zone 3 to 9.  The blue green foliage and black seed pods are also interesting.  This plant has been used as a dye plant and is attractive to butterflies.

Daylily Jean

By McDade-Schreiner – 1943

daylily-jean1I love this historic daylily.  It has coloration similar to the classic “Frans Halls” with red/orange petals alternating with gold petals. It was actually breed more than 10 years before it’s more widely known look alike. There is a creamy gold mid-rib on the red petals of this dormant diploid. This is where the similarities end however. This plant is prized for its height at 38 inches tall, and because it is very late.  The petals are also longer, enough that it can be categorized as an unusual form. The plant won the AHS award of merit in 1951.

Daylily Frans Halls

By Flory – 1955

This historic daylily was named for the old Dutch painter Frans Halls who’s famous work “The Laughing Cavalier” surely inspired the name. The bi-colored flowers of bright rusty orange/red alternating with solid gold surely brings a happy chuckle to the garden. This classic mid to late season bloomer holds 4 ½ flowers atop 24 inch well branched scapes. A dormant diploid, it is also a heavy bloomer, a good grower, and sports a creamy yellow midrib on the red petals.
