2016 PERENNIAL
PLANT OF THE YEAR
ANEMONE
‘HONORINE
JOBERT’
This Japanese
anemone is a graceful
plant that flowers in
late summer and early
fall when colorful
displays of most other
perennials have left
the landscape.
Honorine Jobert is
hardy to Zone 4 and
produces 2 - 3 inch
pure white flowers
with clusters of bright
yellow stamens in the
center of each
blossoms that last for
several weeks.

2016 YEAR OF THE ALLIUM
Most allium flowers have
a long, leafless stalk
topped with a globe-like
bloom.
They are ideal
companions for
ornamental grasses and
other low maintenance
perennials.
Alliums are on the list of
plants deer tend to avoid.
In the garden, the plants
are odorless, but step on
them or chew on them
and the cell walls break,
releasing volatile, sulfurbased chemical
compounds that have a
pungent odor and bitter
taste.

And, though the foliage
repels, the flowers are
filled with sweet nectar
that’s highly attractive to
honeybees, bumblebees
and other pollinators.
2016 YEAR OF THE
DELPHINIUM

Horticultural
Company.
Delphinium is a
perennial favorite
as the tall spikes
of blue flowers in
the background of
a stately English
or cottage garden.
The modern
delphinium flower
may be a single or
double rosette in
popular blue or
red, pink, white,
violet and yellow.
Many of the
flowers have
white or black
centers known as
“bees.”

ALCEA
‘SPOTLIGHT
LAVENDER’
HOLLYHOCK
From the breeding work of
Thompson & Morgan comes
this series of Hollyhock,
whose members were selected
and hybridized over many
generations for their large,
single, bicolor flowers. Each
variety displays a prominent,
contrasting lighter or darker
colored halo in the center of
the flower. Members of this
series form a bushy clump of
rugose green foliage with tall
spikes carrying large, colorful
blossoms in early to
midsummer. Per the breeder,
they are hardy perennials.
This year we are adding a
new color, Halo SeriesLavender, which has lavender
flowers with a pink halo.

intense color than the
species.

as densely branched foliage

scapes above the blue-green
foliage in late spring to early
summer. As the flowers age,
they turn gold.
Well-branched stems form a
bushy, upright spreading
mound of foliage that is
relatively short for

seed pods extend the season of
interest into fall.

the spring, to deep purple to purple
black. Short white flowers in spring
add to this appealing gem.
