What's New in Perennials for 2017?
This year at Sargent’s we are planning to add 85 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.
Iris sibirica (Siberian Iris) ‘Concord Crush’
Graceful plants with tall grassy looking foliage, Siberian Iris are wonderful in borders, wild gardens and along ponds. Plant deeper than other Irises, covering the rhizomes with 1-2” of soil. In colder climates, divide in the spring when the clumps become less vigorous and blooms get smaller. Zone 4-9.
‘Concord Crush’ has huge 6” blue-violet double flowers. Introduced in 2009. 28” tall.
Naturally dwarf, the Opening Act series blooms from early to mid summer with sporadic re-bloom into early fall. Plant in an area with good circulation and sunshine. Mildew and disease resistant. Full sun. 20” tall. Zone 4.
Opening Act ’Blush’ has lavender pink blooms.
Like other plants in the Asclepias family, ‘Hello Yellow’ is a larval host for Monarch butterflies and a nectar source for many other butterflies and bees. While it is slow to emerge in the spring, ‘Hello Yellow’ makes up for the wait with an exceptionally long bloom time. From late spring to late summer you will have bright yellow flower clusters that, in the fall, turn into seedpods you can use in dried flower arrangements. 30” tall. Zone 3.
