Candelabra Primulas (Primroses)

Candelabra primulas are majestic perennial plants noted for their eye-catching flowers carried in numerous whorls up their strong stems, like a wedding cake. Very hardy and long lived, they enjoy a long flowering season extending from late spring to midsummer, depending on varieties. Clump forming, they grow up to 1-3 ft. tall (30-90 cm) and self-sow profusely, ensuring that your display continues year after year. They are happiest in bog gardens, near ponds and streams and grow well in damp shady borders. USDA Zones: 4-8.

Iris ensata (Japanese Iris)

Native to Japan, Japanese Irises (Iris ensata) are among the most elegant and breathtaking Irises. More refined and less conspicuous than the Tall Bearded Irises, these Beardless Irises enjoy huge orchid-like flowers that are a delight to gaze at.

Brunnera macrophylla (Siberian Bugloss)

Resembling Forget-Me-Nots, Brunnera macrophylla (Siberian Bugloss) are rhizomatous herbaceous perennials with large, ovate or heart-shaped basal leaves and pretty sprays of small bright blue flowers in spring. Although their clouds of bright blue flowers add cool and striking color to the landscape, Brunneras are mostly valued for their beautiful foliage which creates a lush carpet of deep green or variegated leaves.

Iris sibirica (Siberian Iris)

Siberian Irises are terrific herbaceous perennials, rich with many qualities: fabulous looking, long display season, easy to grow, low maintenance and trouble free! Their exquisite flowers come in an array of gorgeous blue, purple, red-violet or yellow with newer cultivars in brown and orange shades, and can have a variety of forms from upright to flat and round. After blooming, their grass-like foliage of upright, blade-shaped leaves, is also one of their most attractive garden features as it remains fresh-looking all season.

Astilbes

Immensely popular, Astilbes are fabulous plants for shady, moist conditions. Admired for their graceful, colorful flower plumes rising elegantly above mounds of fern-like foliage which remains attractive all season long, they light up your shade garden for weeks and add a dazzling splash of color in the landscape

Persicaria amplexicaulis (Mountain Fleece)

A real beauty for the border, Mountain Fleece (Persicaria amplexicaulis) is a vigorous, upright perennial enjoying an extremely long bloom season from early summer to fall.

Zantedeschia (Calla Lily)

Spectacular and so easy to grow! Native to South Africa, Calla Lilies deserve a spot in the garden or at home. Whether used in borders, containers or as cut flowers, they always provide a spectacular effect with their rich, cheerful colors and their breathtaking trumpet-shaped flowers (spathe) surrounding a yellow finger-like stalk (spadix)
