Purple buds open to reveal apricot shades of flowers on Erysimum 'Apricot Twist', a non-hardy perennial that thrives in sunny locations with soils that dry between irrigations. This plant forms bushy mounds in warm winter climates (USDA zone 7 - 9) that benefit from cutting back in July to rejuvenate the plant.

Ranunculus asiaticus 'Mache™ Pastel Mix' is a seed-grown strain of Persian buttercup that features fully double orange, scarlet, and yellow blooms above dark green foliage that grows to 16 inches in height during cool weather. When temperatures warm, the plants stop growing and store their nutrients in bulbs. For this reason, the seeds are sown in a cool greenhouse in winter, six weeks before bloom time. The bulbs, which resemble a hand with fingers, are hardy to 10 degrees Farenheit.
