More Newbies!

Let me introduce you to three more Mohonk Garden trials for 2013. I've included a video from Emerald Coast Growers. I've never seen such a romantic way to introduce a plant, AND it's still flower show season- you shouldn't forget! Learn about the 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show, New York in Bloom, and Berkshire Botanic in my last post "A Second Installment for 2013."

Peachy Keen
This new color form of Digitalis 'Dalmation' is new in 2013.
The series is known for compact plants and lots of flower power early in the season. I think the hue is mouth watering, like peach sorbet... ready to try it? 'Dalmation Peach' Foxglove.

Summer Love
A new Agastache from Terra Nova Nurseries, 'Summer Love' is red- violet ( crayon reference) and is said to resemble Liatris. What you get out of a good agastache is consistent summer and fall bloom and lots o' hummingbird activity, deer resistance and fragrance to boot. This one promises to be great!

Fast Forward
Muhlenbergia is a must-have grass for fall color (perfect pink). This recent arrival blooms one month earlier, hence the name. Emerald Coast Growers has put this little promo video together....let's watch.
