ANNUAL or PERENNIAL describes the plant in the Northeast.
ANNUAL - Exquisite flowers in a breathtaking array of color combinations and forms dangle like ornaments from upright stems. A classic plant for the hummingbird garden and especially lovely in containers or mixed planters.
TROPICAL - A gardenia is a flowering plant that prefers a mild, semi-tropical environment. Indoors, this means keeping the temperature around room temperature -- avoiding large fluctuations in temperature -- and the lighting bright. Outdoors, these plants may survive year-round if the area is not prone to freezing temperatures. To prevent freeze damage or plant death in colder climates, potted gardenias should be brought indoors for the winter.
|A North American wildflower, now widely grown across the continent. Plants bloom for many weeks, with loose sprays of white flowers tinged with pale pink. In the breeze these move constantly, looking like a cloud of small butterflies. Superb in containers, the subtle colour blends easily in borders. Drought tolerant once established.|
ANNUAL - Geraniums have been a gardener's favorite for well over a century. The old-fashioned standard for beds, borders, and containers, geranium is still one of the most popular plants today. Traditional bedding types love hot weather and hold up well to dry conditions; many offer colorful foliage..
ANNUAL - (also known as IVY) This versatile foliage plant grows well as a hanging basket, a groundcover beneath larger houseplants, or trained into topiary shapes. It needs medium light and grows best at temperatures between 55 and 70 degrees F. Keep the soil evenly moist and humidity high to discourage spider mites
ANNUAL - Helichrysum flowers are commonly used as flower bed borders. This annual flower produces 36-inch stems with 2-1/2 inch blossoms. Flower colors range from cream to yellow to orange to red. Helichrysum flowers thrive in full sunlight and prefer a lightweight, good-draining soil including sand and gravel.
ANNUAL - Heliotrope is a delightful old-fashioned addition to the home garden that everyone should seek out and try. The fragrance of this plant is an intoxicating vanilla-cinnamon-fruit scent that is most noticeable in the morning and early evening. Heliotrope appreciates moist, but not wet conditions and full or near full sun and makes a wonderful addition to mixed plantings, fragrance gardens, or container gardens
TROPICAL - Hibiscus trees, plants, and shrubs are known for their brightly colored exotic flowers in shades of red, yellow, orange, pink, purple, and blue. The tropical blooms of the hibiscus shrub are short lived. Hibiscus flowers typically bloom for only one day, completing the cycle by closing up, and dropping off the shrub.
In ideal conditions, flower production is plentiful and year-round.
BULB - The perfume of blooming hyacinths is as symbolic of early spring as lilacs are to the late-spring garden. Hyacinth plants consist of chubby, succulent leaves arranged around a central flower spike. Florets pack the flower column in tight clusters. Bulb hybridizers have been busy pushing the envelope on hyacinth color ranges and flower forms. Hyacinth hybrids are now available in almost every color except black. The double forms have rosettelike flowers that add intriguing texture.
SHRUB or INDOOR FLOWERING - Position the potted hydrangea so that it receives bright light. A windowsill is ideal, but if the window gets very hot, direct sunlight, the plant's leaves may become scorched. If that occurs, set the hydrangea back from the window or move it to a location that will receive indirect sunlight, such as a north-facing window. Can be found in our nursery yeard as a shrub or in the greenhouse as an indoor flowering plant at Easter.
ANNUAL - These charming annual plants are herbaceous vines. Trumpet-shaped, open flowers last all summer and are available in a wide range of colors. These tender, annual vines grow easily up a trellis, fence, porch rail or even twine tied to a tree. The ability of the vines to climb provides a vertical, three-dimensional interest, to the garden.
ANNUAL - Impatiens have dark green, glossy, narrow 1-3 inch (2.5-7.7 cm) leaves on light green stems. Plants are 8-12 inches (20-30 cm) tall and wide. They need a shady location and rich moist soil. They come in a large variety of colors and are one of the most popular bedding plants
ANNUAL - Kale and cabbage need good drainage yet must be kept moist and fed to keep them growing vigorously. Pay especially close attention as dry, cold fronts have a tendency to really deplete the available moisture. Feed with light applications of the pre-plant fertilizer every four to six weeks. The colors will intensify as the temperatures start to get cold. Available in the fall
ANNUAL - Lantanas are popular.bedding plants. They are distinctive for the numerous heads of small flowers, which often appear in three colors-yellow, orange, red-in a single cluster. Leaves are generally oval, with rounded teeth, and quite hairy on the under surface. In the past few years they have developed many new varieties of Lantana making them interesting especially since they love the heat.
