2017
PERENNIAL PLANT OF THE YEAR

ASCLEPIAS TUBEROSA
"Butterfly Weed"

________________________________

Hardiness USDA Zones 4 to 9
Light - Butterfly weed grows best in full sun.
Soil - Grows best in well-drained soils and it is drought tolerant.
Uses - Butterfly weed is a perfect selection for full-sun meadow or prairie gardens as well as formal to semi-formal urban gardens. Flower arrangers find the plants make long-lasting cut flowers.
Unique Qualities - Asclepias tuberosa are butterfly magnets. Flowers are a nectar source for many butterflies and leaves are a food source for the monarch butterfly caterpillars.
Maintenance - Butterfly weed is subject to no serious insect or disease problems. Deer usually avoid butterfly weed.

2017 HOSTA OF THE YEAR
"Brother Stefan"

Brother Stefan hosta is a large hosta tolerant of full sun, becoming brighter and brassier with more sunlight during the day. Morning sun is ideal.

Because of its extremely heavy substance, Brother Stefan is generally avoided by deer, making it even more appealing to hosta lovers.

Since it grows well in sun, the design possibilities are endless with this amazing plant. Pair Brother Stefan with hostas and other perennials in shades of blue, lime green, pink and purple. The wonderful texture makes combinations with ornamental grasses, ferns and conifers especially beautiful.

Brother Stefan has variable coloration with a generally deeper green edge over a light green or gold center. Feathering and streaking of the different shades of green reaches in toward the center of the leaf.

The wonderfully textured foliage is definitely the main attraction for this incredible hosta. Large, leathery leaves are heavily pebbled or corrugated, giving the plant a stunning look in the garden.

 

We would like to recommend:


The everblooming miniature daylily
'Going Bananas'. Height of 18". Blooms June to November. Sun loving, drought tolerant and very fragrant.

Heuchera (Coral Bells) is an evergreen perennial available in many varieties. Fantastic leaf coloring and whispy flower spindles. Works great as a border and accent plant.
