Coneflowers grow best in full sun, but will tolerate some light shade. They bloom from early summer to fall and are attractive to birds and butterflies.

'Dutch Chocolate' Baptisia an exotic choice for late-spring gardens. This new baptisia is one of the colorful Decadence series. Flowers are dark brown with purple tinges, and they're stunning in spring flower arrangements. Long sprays of blooms stay in flower for a long time in the garden. Plant this 3-foot-tall baptisia in the back of the border.

Maltese Cross The fiery flowers of Maltese cross (Lychnis chalcedonica) appear on 2- to 4-foot stems in early summer. Sow in sun or part shade in moist, well-drained soil, and cut back after flowering to encourage re-bloom. The flowers may also attract hummingbirds.
