Salvia nemorosa 'May Night'

Salvia nemorosa 'May Night'

May Night

Zone 3 - 9

1997 Perennial Plant of the Year

This is a gorgeous ornamental with dense, deep, indigo-blue flower spikes from mid-summer and onwards. If deadheaded, it will frequently re-bloom in the fall. It is a compact plant growing to about 24" tall and hardy from Zone 3 to 9. ' May Night' is an excellent choice for the summer border or for mass-planting. Combine it with a Coreopsis such as 'Sunray' or 'Golden Showers' to create a dazzling display.

'May Night' like most Salvia, prefers a sunny situation and well-drained, ordinary, garden soil. It is an excellent perennial for cutting and is attractive to bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. It's pebbly foliage is also lightly aromatic.

At Canning Perennials this is still a very popular perennial. It is showy, easy to grow, long flowering and consistent from year to year. If you are looking for a newer Salvia try 'Caradonna'. I have to admit this has become a favourite.

Geranium 'Rozanne'

Geranium 'Rozanne'

Rozanne Cranesbill

Zn 4 - 9

2008 PERENNIAL PLANT OF THE YEAR

One of the most popular varieties of hardy Geranium. 'Rozanne' is a mounding perennial with attractive maple-leaf like, marbled foliage and is covered by 2.5" saucer-shaped flowers from early summer right into the fall. The large blooms are violet-blue with a white centre which is veined with red.

 'Rozanne' is easy to grow in full sun to partial shade in any reasonably good, well-drained soil. It grows 20-24" tall and just a bit wider. This is not a floppy plant like some of its cousins. And doesn't mind at all if you prune it back occasionally. In fact a good hair cut will rejuvenate the plant.

This hardy geranium can be used in a variety of garden settings. It is lovely in the border and a great companion to other perennials and grasses. Try it with the ever blooming ornamental grass Pennisetum 'Karly Rose' or some of the new Shasta Daisies like Leucanthemum 'Goldrush'. Add a special Echinacea for a dynamite combination.

Since it blooms all summer 'Rozanne' is also an excellent container ornamental. Use it to add colour to your patio or have it spilling over walls and walkways. Are you looking for a colourful groundcover? Again 'Rozanne' is an ideal choice. It blooms all summer, has attractive foliage which turns red in the fall.

In addition 'Rozanne' is heat and humidity tolerant. It likes that hot sun provided it has ample moisture. 'Rozanne' is vigorous without being invasive. And it is also deer resistant. Truly a great ornamental, perfect for the busy gardener.

A Blooms of Bressingham variety.

Finally this truly outstanding ornamental has been named the Perennial Plant of the Year. It is a spectacular ornamental.

Beautiful mounding plant with blue, forget-me-not like flowers in spring. Best in part to full shade, in moist, well-drained soil. For a dynamite impact combine 'Jack Frost' with a couple of Japanese Painted ferns, plus a darker foliaged Heuchera.(12-18")
