New Perennials for 2024

Mar 14, 2024 | News

Spring is right around the corner and we’re excited to offer many new perennials, for both the sunny and shade garden. You can find all our new plants on our website as featured collections. These are just some of our favorites, so be sure to check out our full listing online.

Compact Clematis

We have a few new clematis this year, boasting their bold and bright colors. ‘Poseidon’ blooms multicolored shades of pinknew, bright pink Clematis while ‘The Duchess of Cornwall’ and ‘Lindsay’ are deep shades of blue and purple. Many of the new clematis varieties are a more compact size to fit on a smaller trellis in the garden. Make sure to note the pruning group of your clematis so you know how to properly prune each year.

We have some beautiful new daylilies this season. ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears’ has raspberry red flowers with a rosy pink eye and bright yellow throat. ‘Star of the North’ has large yellow blooms with wine-colored halos. ‘Persian Ruby’ is huge, with 8 inch blooms that are shaped like the popular ‘Ruby Spider’, however the petals are more purple than red.

this brightly contrasting catmint is a new perennial we are very excited forA fun color combination can be found in Nepeta ‘Chartreuse on the Loose’ (Catmint), which has chartreuse yellow foliage and the typical lavender blue flowers of Catmint. Nepeta often rebloom, sometimes multiple times a season, if cut back when blooms are spent. The 10 inch compact mound of ‘Chartreuse on the Loose’ will rebloom without being cut back. Another new plant grown for its foliage color is Artemisia ‘Silver Lining’ (White Sagebrush). Broadly dissected silver leaves add color and texture from spring to fall. A wide, low growing habit makes it a perfect filler in the landscape or a spiller in mixed containers. To extend color into the fall season, check out Sedum ‘Midnight Velvet’ (Stonecrop). Dark purple foliage adds interest all season, and rosy red flower clusters open in late summer. A tight mound grows 24 inches tall and 30 inches wide.

New Shade Perennials

For the shade garden we have some nice color to compliment the blues, greens and golds of your hostas. Astilbe ‘Visionbold foliage of Heucherella 'Capture the Flag' Vulcano’ (False Spirea) sends up fluffy plumes of glowing reddish-pink flowers from mid-summer into fall, reaching about 27 inches tall. Heavily serrated leaves emerge dark maroon and mature to dark green, and with adequate moisture, the glossy foliage looks nice all season. If you haven’t tried Heucherella (Foamy Bells), you should consider this new variety, Heucherella ‘Capture the Flag’. Heucherella is a hybrid cross between Heuchera and Tiarella. They get their many foliage colors and textures from Heuchera, while Tiarella add deeper leaf lobes and serration, and their signature central leaf blotching. ‘Capture the Flag’ will capture your attention with its fresh and vibrant foliage! Chartreuse-yellow leaves with burgundy red centers form a mound 8-10 inches tall and 16-18 inches wide. White flower scapes reach up to 22 inches.
