Here is a nice mixture of perennials to keep an eye out for this spring.

European ginger

European Wild Ginger
Asarum europaeum

First class evergreen perennial with rounded leaves of glossy, dark green.  This shade lover will slowly spread to form an unsurpassed ground-cover.  In early spring small brownish-red flowers appear but are well hidden under the leaves.  This groundcover combines well with ferns, hosta, Solomon's Seal and other woodland perennials.  Plant in a shady site out of the hot sun in any average, moist but well drained soil. 

Height:  15cm  Spread:  45cm+  Zone:  2

Geum Eos

Golden Avens
Geum coccineum 'Eos'*

A compact, semi-evergreen perennial with intense, bright yellow foliage.  Rich velvety orange flowers dot the plant late spring into summer.  'Eos' has it's best colouring in full sun but will burn if the site gets too hot and dry, in which case partial shade is best.  Give adequate drainage and even moisture.

Height:  30cm  Spread:  30-45cm  Zone:  5

Popsicle Red Hot Poker

Redhot Poker
Kniphofia Popsicle Series

A new breed of pokers with a more compact habit and attractive, narrow dark green grassy foliage that remains all season. The added bonus is they rebloom from summer into fall.  Great plants for a hot dry location, they require full sun in any well-drained soil.  Zone:  6

 

Kniphofia 'Papaya Popsicle'*

Excellent compact habit with two-toned flowers of hot red-orange fading to light orange yellow.

Height:  30-50cm  Spread:  45cm

 

Kniphofia 'Redhot Popsicle'

Rich cinnamon red flowers on compact, grassy plant.

Height:  40-50cm  Spread:  40cm

 

Kniphofia 'Orange Vanilla Popsicle'

Beautiful two toned flowers opening red- orange fading to creamy white, yummy!  Height:  40-50cm  Spread:  40cm

Lewisia Little Madge

Lewisia cotyledon 'Little Madge'*

A HarkAway Botanicals (but available at Arts Nursery) selection, this clumping perennial forms compact rosettes with long narrow green leaves.  From spring through fall plants will produce whorls of bright magenta flowers.  Requires excellent drainage and little or no feeding.  Prefers light shade and likes to be dry in winter.  Excellent as a container specimen!

Height:  7-12cm  Spread:  12-15cm  Zone:  6

Polygonatum Dragons Scale

Solomon's Seal
Polygonatum odoratum 'Dragon's Scale'*

Hardy and easy to grow this perennial adds a unique textural accent with arching stems clothed in dark green leaves that have several pronounced ridges, giving reference to a dragon’s scale.  The ridges will become more prominent on older plants.  Pale green, bell-like flowers hang down off the stems in early spring.  Plant in partial shade in any well-drained soil.  Great companion to ferns.

Height:  60-90cm  Spread:  50cm +  Zone:  4

Asian White Trillium

Asian White Trillium
Trillium kamtschaticum*

A lovely and robust perennial from Northeast Asia, similar in appearance to our native Trillium ovatum and the Eastern Trillium grandiflorum but with larger foliage and a broader habit.  Bold tri-petaled pure white flowers in early spring.  A superb woodlander that is excellent for naturalizing.  Best planted in cool shade in moist, humus rich, well draining soil.

Height:  30-40cm  Spread:  30cm+  Zone:  5

All of these fine plants are available in limited quantities at Art's Nursery. Always call ahead to confirm availability as our stock and selection are always changing.
