Hot Fun in the Summertime!
Watch our Summer SLIDESHOW and get inspired!
Dahlia garden

It's time to think about your SUMMER GARDEN!

As a thirst-tastically rainy Spring has slowly shifted toward a sunny Summer, we find ourselves unceremoniously ripping out our Spring annuals (so floriferous, they've been blooming their heads off since March) and replanting our demonstration gardens with big-bang-for-the-bloom Summer-to-Fall favorites that promise to evoke ooohs and aaahs from our visitors June all the way to September (and beyond!).

With longer days affording more precious minutes in the garden, you'll find yourself out enjoying the buzzing bees and cutting bouquets in your own Summer paradise ... that is IF you get a move on and plant some simple Summer season extenders soon!

Monarda didyma 'Jacob Cline' Dahlia ‘Dark Side of the Sun’

Monarda didyma 'Jacob Cline'
Huuuge 4" red blooms
crown this vigorous, fast and EASY “Bee Balm” June to September! The healthiest, most MILDEW RESISTANT garden Monarda, tolerant of heat, humidity and any soil including CLAY. Butterfly and hummer favorite! Deer and rabbit resistant! Hardy USDA zone 4!

Dahlia ‘Dark Side of the Sun’
Not a dwarf “gas station” Dahlia so common these days, but a gardenworthy specimen to a proper 4' x 4'. Blooms Summer thru Fall with boatloads of luminous apricot-brushed golden blooms atop luscious chocolate-black foliage. Hardy to USDA zone 9, lift tubers in Winter.

Abutilon 'Talini's Pink' Rudbeckia hirta 'Cherry Brandy'

Abutilon 'Talini's Pink'
Prized by gardeners and nectar-seeking hummers alike, "Flowering Maples" are wildly popular for their easy-going nature and year-round bloom. We're smitten with the deliciously pendulous pink blooms on this exciting variety! Hardy USDA zone 9.

Rudbeckia hirta 'Cherry Brandy'
A bloom machine producing an endless supply of 4" ruby-mahogany flowers early Summer to Fall! Easy-going like all Rudbeckias, it's clay, heat, drought and humidity tolerant. A food source for bees, butterflies, and seed-loving birdies. Hardy USDA zone 5!

Agastache 'Blue Boa' Callirhoe involucrata “Wine Cups”

Agastache 'Blue Boa'
Chubby-licious 5" long x 3" wide blooms! AND it's one of the earliest and longest to bloom – ours started in May! EASY, fast and tolerant of heat, humidity and deer. Puts on a STELLAR performance from early Summer thru Fall. Butterflies and hummingbirds! Hardy USDA zone 5!

Callirhoe involucrata “Wine Cups”
Showy, glowy "Wine Cups" thrive in heat and low water conditions, bearing a multitude of luscious 2" blooms on ground-hugging stems to 3’ long. Simply one of our prettiest Midwestern natives! Long-lived, blooms all Summer! Best in infertile, well-drained soil. Hardy to USDA zone 5!

Thunbergia alata ‘Spanish Eyes’ Senecio candicans 'Angel Wings'

Thunbergia alata ‘Spanish Eyes’
Blooms in dreamy shades of peach, amber and gold with a mysterious dark eye positively smother the foliage on this vigorous, fast-growing and easy vine from mid-Summer to Fall. To 6' x 6', it's happy in bright shade as well as sun. Butterflies!

Senecio candicans 'Angel Wings'
The “IT” plant in our demo gardens last year! Silvery-white velvety heart-shaped leaves to 5” across in a multi-layered rosette make a dramatic highlight in the garden or container. Rich, well-drained soil with regular water. Hardy USDA zone 8.
