Designing with Spring Bulbs
Because choosing combos that bloom together can be a challenge, start with the prepackaged bulbs in catalogs or at your local garden center. Add in Early Perennials Pansies are winter-hardy early bloomers -- so plant them in fall along with your spring bulbs for a knockout show. Vinca, hellebores, and creeping phlox are also good partners for your spring bulbs.

Unlike other lavenders, this new variety can tolerate temperatures as low as 30 degrees below zero F. 'SuperBlue' blooms all summer long, producing dark blue, fragrant flowers and foliage. It grows 12 inches tall and does well in containers or gardens. Plant Name: Lavandula angustifolia 'SuperBlue' Growing Conditions: Full sun Size: 10–12 inches tall and wide Zones: 4–9 Grow it with: Dianthus Source: Burpee Fireworks Igloo Chrysanthemum Fireworks Igloo Chrysanthemum For bold autumn color, nothing beats chrysanthemums. But now there's a new garden mum that's guaranteed to take your breath away. 'Fireworks Igloo' forms a 2-feet-tall mound smothered in bright pink spider flowers. This fall blooming perennial has been extensively trialed and has proven to be both cold hardy and easy care. Name: Dendranthema 'Fireworks Igloo' Growing Conditions: Full to partial sun Size: 24 inches tall and wide Zones: 5–9 Grow it with: Asters Source: Blooms of Bressingham Siesta Helenium Siesta Helenium For years, gardeners have relied on helenium to provide summer color in their borders. Problem is, many of the older varieties would flop over at a moment’s notice. But this won’t happen with ‘Siesta’ helenium. It’s a compact variety that stays upright, growing just 18–20 inches tall. From June until September the plants produce masses of deep red flowers with pretty yellow centers. ‘Siesta’ helenium is also drought-resistant and attractive to butterflies. Name: Helenium autumnale Mariachi ‘Siesta’ Growing Conditions: Full sun Size: 18–20 inches tall, 24 inches wide Zones: 3–9 Grow it with: Black-eyed Susan Source: Plants Nouveau Fantasy Cinderella Anemone Fantasy Cinderella Anemone By late summer, some perennials start to look a little weary, but not ‘Cinderella’ anemone. In fact, that’s when ‘Cinderella’ is ready to party. This little charmer develops strong, wiry stems in late summer that are topped with bright pink flowers with yellow centers. The plants remain compact and will perform as well in containers as they do in the ground. Name: Anemone Fantasy ‘Cinderella’ Growing Conditions: Full sun Size: 12–18 inches tall, 18–24 inches wide Zones: 5–8 Grow it with: Chrysanthemums Source: Plants Nouveau Supreme Flamingo Coneflower Supreme Flamingo Coneflower Talk about eye-popping color! The large double flowers of Supreme 'Flamingo' coneflowers are an outstanding mixture of coral-and-deep pink. These drought-resistant plants bloom from midsummer until fall and form larger and larger clumps every year. Name: Echinacea Supreme 'Flamingo' Growing Conditions: Sun Size: 26 inches tall, 15 inches wide Zones: 4–10 Grow it with: Other echinacea Source: Blooms of Bressingham/Terra Nova Nurseries Supreme Elegance Coneflower Supreme Elegance Coneflower The big bold blooms of Supreme 'Elegance' coneflower are simply spectacular. Each fully double flower has deep red centers surrounded by a rim of mauve pink petals that deepen in color as the flower ages. 'Elegance' coneflowers grow 30 inches tall, so plant them in the middle of your flower border. Flowers appear midsummer and keep coming until fall. Name: Echinacea Supreme 'Elegance' Growing Conditions: Sun Size: 30 inches tall, 19 inches wide Zones: 4–10 Grow it with: Nepeta Source: Blooms of Bressingham/Terra Nova Illumination Flame Digiplexis Illumination Flame Digiplexis All of us at Better Homes and Gardens were blown away when we saw ‘Illumination Flame’ digiplexis for the first time. A hybrid between Isoplexis canariensis and Digitalis purpurea (foxglove), this award-winning new perennial develops stalks of large, tubular, reddish-orange flowers with yellow throats. The plant’s only downside is that it’s not hardy in northern climates. Name: Digiplexis ‘Illumination Flame’ Growing Conditions: Sun, partial sun Size: 36 inches tall, 18 inches wide Zones: 8–10 Grow it with: Cranesbill geranium Source: Skagit Gardens Short 'n' Sassy Helenium Short 'n' Sassy Helenium When you think about perennials, heleniums are probably not the first plants that come to mind. But these pretty, easy-care natives deserve a place in every sunny border. What’s more, there’s now a compact variety that only grows 12–18 inches tall. It’s called ‘Short ’n’ Sassy’ and is one of our favorite new introductions because the plants stay in bloom a long time. Plants produce bright gold-and-orange flowers. Because it is so compact, ‘Short ’n’ Sassy' also works great in containers. Name: Helenium ‘Short ’n’ Sassy’ Growing Conditions: Full sun Size: 12–18 inches tall, 24 inches wide Zones: 4–8 Grow it with: Echinacea Source: Skagit Gardens Beyond Blue Festuca Beyond Blue Festuca One of the bluest grasses you can grow, ‘Beyond Blue’ festuca has a richer, deeper color than the classic festuca grass, ‘Elijah Blue’. It also maintains its color throughout the season, even during dry periods when other festuca grass will turn brown. The plants thrive in hot, dry locations with poor soil. ‘Beyond Blue’ also develops graceful flower stalks in early summer. Because of its short stature, it makes a great container plant. Name: Festuca ‘Beyond Blue’ Growing Conditions: Sun, partial sun Size: 4–8 inches tall, 8–12 inches wide Zones: 4–8 Grow it with: Echeveria Source: Skagit Gardens Black Truffle Lobelia Black Truffle Lobelia Even when not in bloom, ‘Black Truffle’ lobelia looks great in the garden. That’s because it’s the first lobelia of its kind with dark maroon foliage. But of course, this rugged perennial is even more stunning when in flower. Each plant shoots up spikes of cardinal-red flowers that perfectly complement the dark foliage. The bright blooms are prized by hummingbirds. ‘Black Truffle’ lobelia thrives in rich, slightly moist soil. Name: Lobelia cardinalis ‘Black Truffle’ Growing Conditions: Full sun Size: 3–4 feet tall, 2–3 feet wide Zones: 3–8 Grow it with: Colocasia Source: Plants Nouveau Prairie Munchkin Little Bluestem Prairie Munchkin Little Bluestem Are you looking for a native grass that tolerates heat and drought and has no insect or disease problems? If so, ‘Prairie Munchkin’ little bluestem grass is for you. This new variety is shorter and more colorful than its bluestem parents. Growing just 3 feet tall, ‘Prairie Munchkin’ sends up feathery flower spikes in midsummer that remain upright even in strong storms. In the fall and winter, ‘Prairie Munchkin’ fades from blue to strawberry blonde, making it an almost perfect four-season plant. Name: Schizachyrium scoparium ‘Prairie Munchkin’ Growing Conditions: Full sun Size: 24–30 inches tall, 20–24 inches wide Zones: 3–9 Grow it with: Russian sage Source: Plants Nouveau Red Riding Hood Beardtongue Red Riding Hood Beardtongue When you plan your garden, look for perennials with native roots. ‘Red Riding Hood’ beardtongue, for example, is a selection bred from native plants found in the Western United States. That makes it especially tolerant of hot summers and dry conditions. Of course, the main reason you should include ‘Red Riding Hood’ in your garden is because of its neon-red tubular blooms that appear midsummer. This tough-as-nails perennial also is highly attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. Name: Penstemon ‘Red Riding Hood’ Growing Conditions: Full sun Size: 18–24 inches tall, 18 inches wide Zones: 4–8 Grow it with: Perennial salvia Source: Monrovia 'Red Satin' Coreopsis 'Red Satin' Coreopsis A major color breakthrough for coreopsis, ‘Red Satin’ produces quantities of red-wine flowers held aloft on wiry stems with narrow, bright green foliage. It’s a lovely plant that stays in bloom from midsummer until fall, especially if you remove the flowers as they fade. ‘Red Satin’ forms a tight clump and won’t spread through your garden. Name: Coreopsis ‘Red Satin’ Growing Conditions: Full sun Size: 15–18 inches tall, 18–20 inches wide Zones: 5–9 Grow it with: Echinacea Source: Great Garden Plants Mariachi Fuego Helenium Mariachi Fuego Helenium Pure joy! That’s what you’ll have when ‘Mariachi Fuego’ helenium pops into bloom. This happy, easy-care plant produces masses of gold-and-orange daisylike flowers that look like they are dancing when their wiry stems are touched by the breeze. ‘Mariachi Fuego’ is also drought- and disease-resistant and grows bigger and better every year. Name: Helenium ‘Mariachi Fuego’ Growing Conditions: Full sun Size: 18–20 inches tall, 20–24 inches wide Zones: 3–9 Grow it with: Ornamental grass Source: Plants Nouveau Cleopatra Coneflower Cleopatra Coneflower The lemon yellow flowers of ‘Cleopatra’ coneflower are a refreshing addition to any garden. Developed overseas, this newcomer is named for its bright yellow, slightly upturned petals that remind the breeders of the yellow European Cleopatra butterfly. ‘Cleopatra’ is also prized for its strong stems that don’t flop over, and its compact form that makes it suitable for garden or container culture. Name: Echinacea ‘Cleopatra’ Growing Conditions: Full sun Size: 15–18 inches tall, 18–24 inches wide Zones: 5–9 Grow it with: Other Echinacea Source: Plants Nouveau Julia Coneflower Julia Coneflower Developed by the same breeder as 'Cleopatra', 'Julia' also was named after a European butterfly, although this time the butterfly was bright orange. 'Julia' is a lovely new addition to the world of coneflowers that develops rich tangerine petals that curve slightly downward. It loves hot weather and is highly attractive to butterflies. Name: Echinacea 'Julia' Growing Conditions: Full sun Size: 15–18 inches tall, 18–24 inches wide Zones: 5-9 Grow it with: Other Echinacea Source: Plants Nouveau Just For You Top New Sun-Loving Perennials for 2014 Power Perennials: Plants that Thrive No Matter What Easy Groundcovers
