  1. Acanthus mollis

    Acanthus mollis

    Bear's Breeches

    Winter hardy to USDA Zones 7-10 where it is easily grown in average, fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Plants tolerate a wide range of soils except poorly-drained ones. Plants may not flower well in too much shade. Late spring frosts can impair or eliminate flowering for the year. Remove flowering stalks after bloom. In cold winter areas, plant foliage should be left in place over winter but removed in early spring as new foliage appears. Plants can spread aggressively by creeping rootstocks, particularly in loose soils. Unwanted spread can be addressed by root barriers. Plants generally spread less in the northern parts of their growing range.

  3. Acanthus spinosus

    Acanthus spinosus

    Bear's breeches, spiny

    Acanthus spinosus commonly called bear's breeches is a clump-forming perennial which is grown as much for its attractive foliage as for its architecturally bold flower spikes. Features pure white, snapdragon-like flowers enclosed (hooded and subtended) by spiny, reddish-purple bracts and arranged in vertical rows on substantial flower spikes which rise well above the foliage mound to 3-4' tall. Blooms from late spring into mid summer. Deeply-cut, arching, glossy green, spiny, thistle-like leaves (2-3' long) form an ornamental mound of long-stalked, basal foliage which usually remains attractive throughout the growing season.

    Achillea 'Moonshine'

    Yarrow 'Moonshine'

    'Moonshine' (A. clypeolata x A. 'Taygetea') is an upright, clump-forming, compact hybrid yarrow which is noted for its deeply-dissected, fern-like, aromatic, silvery to gray-green foliage and its tiny, long-lasting, bright lemon-yellow flowers which appear in dense, flattened, compound corymbs (to 2-3" across) throughout the summer on stiff, erect stems typically rising 1-2' tall. Use as a specimen, in groups or masses. Borders. Cottage gardens.

  5. Achillea millefoilum 'Paprika'

    Achillea millefolium 'Paprika'

    Yarrow 'Paprika'

    'Paprika' is a spreading, mat-forming common yarrow cultivar which is noted for its deeply-dissected, fern-like, aromatic, medium green foliage and its tiny, long-lasting, dusty-red flowers with yellow centers which appear in dense, flattened, compound corymbs (to 2-3" across) throughout the summer on stems typically rising 1.5-2' tall. Initial flower color fades, sometimes rather quickly, to light pink, creamy yellow and brown. Foliage has a strong, somewhat spicy aroma which persists when used in dried arrangements. Millefolium means "thousand-leaf" in reference to its fern-like foliage.

    Achillea millefolium 'Strawberry Seduction' PP18401

    Yarrow 'Strawberry Seduction'

    This yarrow features large heads of velvety red flowers with bright gold centers atop long stems. Upright habit is remarkably dense, full and sturdy. Long blooming period, mid-June through July.

  7. Achillea millefolium 'Sunny Seduction'

    Achillea millefolium 'Sunny Seduction'

    Yarrow 'Sunny Seduction'

    This cheerful selection produces a bouquet of flowers that open intense lemon yellow, then lighten to pastel yellow. New flowers are produced all summer long, providing an array of cheerful yellow color over an extended period of bloom. 'Sunny Seduction' is a notable improvement over 'Moonshine'. Members of the Seduction Series have strong, branched stems with shorter internodes, and a compact habit. Unlike older cultivars with a weaker, open habit, they have a very robust yet compact habit. They are beautiful in the landscape.

  9. Adiantum capillus-veneris

    Adiantum capillus-veneris

    Fern - Southern Maidenhair

    Southern maidenhair fern is a deciduous, clumping fern with a drooping habit that grows to 12-18” tall and slowly spreads by short creeping rhizomes. It features bipinnate to tripinnate fronds with wiry, black stems that are distinctively arching to pendent. Small pinnae (each to 1/2” long) are fan-shaped, having wedge-shaped bases and irregular lobing at the apex. Sori (spores) appear in summer on the reflexed pinnae undermargins. It is similar in appearance to northern maidenhair fern (Adiantum pedatum), except among other things its fronds are unforked. Soft delicate finely textured foliage is attractive in woodland areas.

  10. Aegopodium podagraria 'Variegatum'

    Aegopodium podagraria 'Variegatum'

    Bishop's Weed

    This variegated goutweed is one of the most popular ground covers for quickly covering large areas. Will rapidly form a continuous mound of attractive foliage typically growing to 8" tall with an indefinite spread. Unfortunately, once it gets going, it acts like the proverbial snowball going downhill and can be difficult to contain. 'Variegatum' is less aggressive than the species, however. Variegated, biternate to triternate basal foliage is light green with creamy white margins. Individual leaflets (to 3" long) are oval and serrated. Tiny white flowers appear in flat-topped, dill-like inflorescences (umbels) which are typical of the parsley/carrot family. Flowers appear above the foliage in May-June, but are not particularly attractive and are often sheared off by gardeners where practicable.
