What's New in Perennials for 2018?
This year at Sargent’s we are planning to add 66 new perennials to our inventory!! Our hardworking and dedicated growers actually started some of the new perennials last fall, and then tucked them away all cozy and warm for the winter. Here are some highlights on a few of them.
‘Millenium‘ Allium (Ornamental Onion)
Introducing the 2018 Perennial Plant of the Year! Bred by Mark McDonough, ‘Millenium’ is a clump forming ornamental onion that, due to the sterile seed, won’t take over your garden. A summer blooming cultivar, ‘Millenium’ begins blooming about a week later than ‘Summer Beauty’ but earlier than ‘Medusa’. 2” globular, rosy purple clusters, dance above the dark green, strappy foliage from mid to late summer, bringing in the bees and the butterflies. The aromatic foliage deters the rabbits and deer from snacking on them. 15-20” tall and 10-15” wide. Will grow in full sun to part shade, but performs the best in full sun. Hardy in zones 4-8.
Peonies are a wonderful addition to your yard. Cultivated for over 4000 years, under optimal conditions a peony can survive for up to 100 years. By planting varieties with different bloom times, you can enjoy the beauty of flowering peonies from late spring to early summer. Hardy in zones 2-8.
‘Sweet Harmony’ has large lavender-rose double blooms with sturdy stems. Late season bloomer. Flowers have a very long vase life. Grows 32” tall.
Here is a new addition to Proven Winners daylily series ‘Rainbow Rhythm’. ‘Storm Shelter’ is a tetraploid daylily with fragrant 5” mauve flowers with an egg-plant purple eye and a matching picotee edge. Grows 24” tall and 18-24” wide. Performs best in full sun. Hardy in zones 3-9.
