ACHILLEA 'Strawberry Seduction' NEW 2013 Aptly named, this selection produces large clusters of luscious strawberry red flowers with a gold center, just like the seeds on a real strawberry. A uniform blossom height results in the flowers being produced in a domed canopy atop a full, sturdy, upright clump of grey-green foliage. One unique characteristic about this plant is that after the red flowers are finished, when left to dry on the stems they turn a lovely shade of buff yellow. The plant literally looks like it is continuing to bloom yellow, extending its interest in the landscape much longer than other varieties. 18-24" high by 28-32" wide. $13.00 each or 5 for $60.00 achillea strawberry seduction

AJUGA 'Burgandy Glow' NEW 2013 Fantastic tricolored foliage in shades of creamy-white, rose-burgundy, and dark green make this ajuga different than all the others.

The effect is stunning when planted en masse. 'Burgundy Glow' tends to spread more slowly than many other varieties in this species, making it suitable for use as an edging. It also fits nicely into rock gardens and mixed container plantings.

GRASS Hakonechloa 'Naomi' NEW 2013 Zone 5. (Japanese Forest Grass) 8-16" high by 18"-24" wide. Excellent fall color sets this cultivar apart from H. m. 'Aureola'. The creamy yellow and green variegated leaves become flushed with reddish-purple tones in fall. The color is most pronounced in cool weather. Though this grass does spread by stolons, it is a slow grower and will not rapidly overtake its neighbors. Plant it where it can cascade down slopes, drape over rocks, crawl over the edges of walls, at the front of the garden, or even in containers. Hakonechloa is grown mainly for its beautiful foliage, though it does produce seed heads. Tiny, inconspicuous reddish brown flower spiklets appear in airy clusters from late summer thru early fall. $13.00 each or 5 for $60.00

As winter approaches, they transform into silky white panicles which are especially lovely when backlit by the early morning or late afternoon sun. $13.00 each or 5 for $60.00

GRASS Panicum 'Cheyene Sky' NEW 2013 (Red Switch Grass) Zone 4. 3 feet high by 18" wide. 'Cheyenne Sky' forms a tight, vase-shaped clump of blue-green foliage that begins turning wine red in early summer. By late summer, nearly the entire clump is drenched in color and is topped by matching wine-red flower panicles held just above the foliage. It makes a dynamite specimen plant and is even more eye-catching when planted en masse. Switch grass gets its name from the peaceful swishing sound it makes when blowing in the wind. $13.00 each or 5 for $60.00

GRASS Panicum 'Dewey Blue' NEW 2013 (Bitter Switch Grass) Zone 4. 3-5 feet high by 2-3 feet wide.

GRASS Panicum 'Prairie Fire' NEW 2013 (Switch Grass) Zone 4. A spectacular switch grass with sturdy, upright, blue-green stems and wine-red leaves. In the spring, the foliage is blue-green, but by early summer the leaves begin to turn a stunning shade of deep red. Most red switch grasses do not begin to turn color until late summer, so this grass is quite remarkable in that it changes color so early in the season. In late summer, a bouquet of rosy panicles is displayed just above the foliage. When in bloom, the leaves curl slightly, which gives the impression of red ribbons woven throughout the flowers. 4-5 feet high by 2 feet wide. $13.00 each or 5 for $60.00

HEUCHERA (Please click for separate Heuchera page)

HIBISCUS 'Berrylicious' NEW 2013 Huge 8-9in, mauve lavender blossoms with a deep strawberry red eye have attractively ruffled, overlapping petals. They are produced on all sides of the dense, bushy, rounded clump of thick, bright green, maple-like leaves. This Hibiscus is a very floriferous indeterminate bloomer, so there are buds at many nodes up the stems rather than just at the tips. The result is a much longer season of bloom and flowers that cover all sides of the plant rather than just the top. 5 feet high by 5 feet wide. $20.00

HIBISCUS 'Midnight Marvel' NEW 2013 Very deep wine purple, dissected maple-like foliage that is thick and leathery.
