Chives are a popular culinary herb in the home garden. Grown for the mild onion flavor of their leaves and pretty flowers, Chives attract bees and other pollinators to the garden while helping deter damaging insects such as Japanese beetles. Used in cooking for over 5000 years, Chives are also cultivated for their ornamental value in flower gardens, and traditionally have been used for their medicinal properties. Easy to grow, Chives are rewarding little plants to grow outdoors in the garden or indoors in pots.
Native to Southern Europe and Western Asia, Sempervivum (Hens and Chicks or Houseleek) is a mat-forming succulent, that produces irresistible, evergreen rosettes of thick, fleshy leaves. Cute but tough, their beauty resides largely in their infinite variations. They are available in a wide range of colors, from light to dark green to brown, pink and purple, either at the tips of the leaves or throughout the whole plant. The leaves may be pointed or rounded, glossy or matte, with a waxy bloom or with downy hairs. Their foliage colors vary with the sun exposure, the seasons and the climate.

AHS conducts a popularity poll each year among its members to determine the favorite daylilies from each region. The goal of this poll is to provide a true view of which daylilies perform well in a given area and which are favored by gardeners. Here is a compilation of the top favorite daylilies in North America
Daylilies have a relatively short blooming period, 1 to 5 weeks and depending on their variety and your area, they may bloom from early spring until frost. Some varieties are 'reblooming'. These daylilies bloom more than one time during a single season. Some of these bloom early (e.g., May or June) and then repeat in the fall. Others have a succession of bloom periods, one shortly after another for several months. Here is a selection of pretty Daylily cultivars prized for their ability to rebloom.
Less than 2 feet tall (60 cm), these compact daylilies will fit any tiny spot!
