G. tuberosum #GE01

Among the first geraniums to flower in spring and unique to the genus, being the only geranium with tuberous roots. Introduced

in 1596, this Mediterranean native grows naturally in regions with warm, dry summers. Large, silky flowers are borne in clusters at the tips of 8" stems in shades of deep rose, pink, purple or violet, crisply veined with deeper color. In the right position it will scatter seed liberally and form a self-perpetuating colony. The deeply cut green leaves disappear soon after flowering. A charming woodland plant providing decorative ground cover in season. [Ht: 8", Bl: L, Zones: 5 to 9, S/SSH, 48/sq.yd.]

It blooms late in the spring, exact bloom time varying depending upon location and time of planting. Flowers are purple-red with the outer segments showing some magenta; the inner segments are cyclamen-purple with a white stripe. [Ht: 24", Bl: L (variable), Zones: 5 to 9, S, 81/sq.yd.]

HELLEBORUS ORIENTALIS Size: 3 inch pots “Lenten Rose.” Through hybridizing and selec- tion many beautiful hellebores have become available. In mild climates they bloom in midwinter and in cold areas where the ground freezes their flowers appear in late winter or early spring. They all require moist, highly organic, well-draining alkaline soil. They are long-lived, preferring not to be disturbed once established, and will form large colonies. Deer and vole resistant. (Color photos of all helle- bores offered can be found on our website.) [Ht: 12"-22", Bl: Winter/Spr, Zones: 4 to 9, SSH/SH]

HEMEROCALLIS Top Size “Daylily”

Hemerocallis are members of the lily family. Their blossoms usually last one day (hence, the common name “daylily”), but the clump-form- ing plants, with their gracefully arching strap- shaped leaves, produce enormous numbers of large, six-petaled flowers throughout the sum- mer. Easy to grow, very hardy and remarkably free from disease, they thrive in sun or partial shade, adapting well to most locations, includ- ing moist soils.
