Fascinating Cybister and Exotic Amaryllis

More and more popular, the Cybister Amaryllis are truly spectacular with their exotic, orchid-like flowers. They feature long, ribbon-like, spidery petals and splashes of bright color such as deep reds, soft green, copper, dark pink, creamy white and burgundy. They are unlike any other Amaryllis group and their cultivars belong to the Spider group.

Scilla Varieties

Treasured for their flowers, most Scillas bloom in spring, but a few species produce their pretty blooms in late summer or fall.  Which one is for you?

Eryngium (Sea Holly)

Attractive, Sea Holly plants (Eryngium) are striking ornamental perennials grown for their arresting, thistle-like, silvery or blue tinted flower heads adorned with a ruff of showy bracts. Blooming in summer and sometimes into fall, they are useful in rock gardens, coastal gardens and in borders where their steel blue flowers and foliage complement the vibrantly colored summer flowers.

Pretty Native American Roses

There are about 20 rose species native to the United States. Despite their remarkable charms, they represent less than 2 percent of the rose market and seem to be overlooked by landscapers and gardeners. Although not as showy and spectacular as the European and Asian species and hybrids brought to the United States in the past centuries, we believe these native roses should have a place in today’s landscapes.
