10 Perennials to Plant Now!

If you garden in temperate climes like ours, from now until December you can – no wait – you MUST plant biennials, perennials and even some hardy annuals in order to have a spectacular and bloomiferous garden come Spring. With rain expected in the coming week here in the Bay Area and beyond, the time couldn't be better for getting plants in the ground so they'll have the Winter months to establish their roots. Bonus: We've got some crazy special cool ONE CROP WONDERS ready right now, they're limited in supply so grab them while you can!

Corydalis flexuosa 'Porcelain Blue' Alstroemeria ‘The Third Harmonic’

Corydalis flexuosa 'Porcelain Blue'
Robins-egg blue flowers with a Narcissus-like scent and lacy foliage are the calling cards of this surprisingly hardy Corydalis (USDA zone 5!). Loved by bees and hummers, flowers appear in Spring and it re-blooms prolifically in Fall. Available for only the 2nd time this year – grab one while you can!

Alstroemeria ‘The Third Harmonic’
Available this year for the first time since 2012! We're excited about this tough, long-lived and super long-blooming "Peruvian Lily"! Heat, clay, deer and drought tolerant, it's EASY with average soil and water and good drainage. Large-flowered and longer-stemmed than the dwarf varieties so commonly available today. Hardy USDA zone 7!
Thalictrum rochebrunianum Geranium x procurrens ‘Ann Folkard’

Thalictrum rochebrunianum
Virtually indestructible, this stalwart and reliably perennial "Meadow Rue" bursts into huge clouds – 3’ across – of lavender-pink flowers in June. Ideal for rising above roses and shorter subjects, it's a low maintenance essential in our Spring gardens. Deer resistant! Hardy to USDA zone 4!

Geranium x procurrens ‘Ann Folkard’
She's back! We're thrilled to welcome back this gorgeous, tough and everblooming Geranium after 7 sad years when it was nowhere to be found on the market. Super contrasty chartreuse foliage lights up the garden with 1" magenta flowers Spring thru Fall. Deer resistant! Hardy USDA zone 5!

Pelargonium 'Lord Bute' Dianthus ‘Scent First Coconut Surprise’

Pelargonium 'Lord Bute'
Maybe the most lusted after "Regal Pelargonium" of all, scrumptious purple-maroon 2.5” blooms are outlined with bright cerise edging. A long and bountiful bloomer late Spring thru Fall, it’s an EASY and perfect patio or container plant. Hardy to USDA zone 9.

Dianthus ‘Scent First Coconut Surprise’
Bred for exceptional fragrance
and a long Spring thru Summer bloom season (with deadheading), this wonderful new hybrid from England forms a dense evergreen weed-suppressing mound to 10" x 10" – perfect for edging a bed and lovely in a container. Hardy USDA zone 5.

Clerodendrum ugandense"Blue Butterfly Bush" Ranunculus 'Champagne'

Clerodendrum ugandense"Blue Butterfly Bush"
The most asked about plant in our late Spring gardens! Reaching 4-5’ in its first year, this fast-growing shrub features an abundance of two-tone butterfly-shaped blue flowers. Bursts into bloom in late Spring and flowers nearly nonstop till first frost. Deer resistant. Hardy USDA zone 9.

Ranunculus 'Champagne'
Layers of crepe paper-like petals in a mix of peach, apricot, raspberry and gold are reminiscent of pint-sized peonies! Produces an abundance of large 3-5” flowers on long 10" stems that keep coming all Spring. Excellent cut flower! Deer resistant! Hardy to USDA zone 8.
Helleborus orientalis ‘Berry Swirl’ Viola odorata ‘Queen Charlotte’

Helleborus orientalis ‘Berry Swirl’
Lighting up the late Winter shade garden like no other, double blooms in luscious shades of cherry and orchid are a decadent surprise when little else is blooming. Deer, drought and clay tolerant, Hellebores make your garden look great with almost no effort! Hardy USDA zone 5.

Viola odorata ‘Queen Charlotte’ 
Extraordinarily scented, this reigning sovereign of sweet violets is EASY and carefree! Ideal as a groundcover or filler for shady spots – or plant in a pot for up-close aromatherapy.
