to Garden Perennials...the daylily and perennial plant nursery of
Gail Korn in Wayne, Nebraska.
2015--Our 33nd Year
One of the new things we are most
excited about is Echinacea Cheyenne Spirit. It comes in a wide variety
of colors but we won’t know until they bloom what the colors are. The
coolest feature of these coneflowers is that they will self-seed, and
the seedlings may be any color. You won’t have to buy a red one and an
orange one and a cream one in order to have all of the colors. The
other best part is that they are hardy everywhere! We’ve heard so many
discouraging results about the many patented echinaceas on the market
now. Echinaceas should not be expensive annuals!
You’ll find a new Hibiscus called Midnight Marvel.
It’s a red hibiscus with foliage strongly tinted purple. It has a long
bloom period. We’ve added Hosta Curly Fries to our collection of
miniature hostas. This one will provide a strong contrast with its long
slender wavy chartreuse leaves. Two new lilies are offered. ‘Blackout’
is an Asiatic lily in deep red with a deeper red center in each petal.
It’s pretty dramatic. Lily ‘Hotline’ is an Oriental lily that will
bloom in July with your daylilies. Petals are white with a red margin
on each petal. It will add wonderful fragrance to your garden.
We are offering a couple of asters that we haven’t
offered for a while. Aster ‘Hella Lacey’ will provide royal purple
flowers in fall on a 4’ x 4’ bush. Aster ‘Professor Kippenburg’ flowers
are lavender blue on bushes that are 2’ x 2’. Veronicastrum v. alba
rosea gives you an option of having the striking Veronicastrum plant
habit of vertical and horizontal emphasis on a plant that is 3’ tall
instead of 4’ or 5’. It has the same white spikes of bloom midsummer.
We have quite a few daylilies being offered for the first time. Too many to list here.
