      Anemone "Wild Swan" With A. rupicola as the female parent, it exhibits continuous flowering starting in mid-June, lasting until mid-November frost!!! The large white flowers are held well above the foliage. A pronounced nodding habit, particularly in the evening and early morning, enhances the appearance of the attractive lilac-blue reversed petals. Performs best in a rich soil that does not dry out. Looks great in dappled shade! Approximately 60cm (24 inches).

    Hellebore, Onyx Odyssey. "Hellebores are the harbingers of spring, blooming for six weeks or more beginning in late winter. They are often flowering during the Christian season of Lent, from which they get their common name, Lenten Rose. This is the perfect plant for naturalizing in moist, woodland areas where its extensive root system will spread as far as it is allowed."

    Geranium - This is not your typical annual geranium that fills window boxes everywhere… in truth, those are Pelargoniums. True geraniums are a perennial that does well in partial shade, and blooms pink or blue all summer. In addition, many varieties’ foliage turns bronze or red in the fall. We love Geranium “Rozanne”. Its blooms are big and blue, and the plant grows to 20 inches.
