The Perennial Yard
Once again a new season is upon us, bringing with it new challenges and new opportunities. We are excited about all the new varieties of perennials which we will be offering this year. We are confident we have always offered the most extensive collection of perennials available in Eastern Ontario and this year is no different. We will have hundreds of new listings this year once again, bringing our total to well over two thousand varieties.
New on the list is Euphorbia 'First Blush', Echinacea 'Coconut Lime', Echinacea 'Green Envy', Polemonium reptans 'Touch of Class', an improved variety of 'Stairway to Heaven'. This beauty has vivid green leaf centres surrounded by cream coloured margin that turns pink in cool weather or full sun. In all we have over 25 varieties of Echinacea for sale including 'Vintage Wine', 'White Lustre', 'Kim's Knee High', 'Sparkler', 'Doubledecker', 'Little Giant', 'Ruby Giant', 'Prairie Frost', 'Kim's Mophead', 'Ruby Star' and more. There are some of the newest varieties of Daylilies, Hostas, Heucheras (Citronnelle, Moka, Tiramisu to name a few!) Astilbes, Peonies, Monkshood, Lilies, Bleeding Hearts , Sedum and many, many more! We now have over 45 named varieties of Hen and Chicks.

We have a separate section for alpine plants. Not only for alpine gardens but they are excellent in gravelly spots or in pavement cracks, and they look lovely filling in spots on a rock waterfall!
