Centaurea hypoleuca 'John Coutts'   Persian Cornflower, Knapweed          Sun       Zone:  3-9

Centaurea hypoleuca 'John Coutts'   Persian Cornflower, Knapweed

Large vibrant FRAGRANT shaggy deep rosy purple blooms on a select form of a species rarely seen in the trade.  Forms a bushy clump of grey-green divided foliage, felty beneath and blooms from early summer into Fall if deadheaded.  A rugged fellow, like most in the Genus and will live in some pretty awful spots as long as they're sunny.  In soil too rich, they get a little too happy, grow a little tall and may need staking.  Best to keep John "Lean and Mean"!

Chelonopsis moschata    Japanese Turtlehead      Z:  5-9     Light/dappled shadePart Shade

Chelonopsis moschataAKA, C. yagiharana.  While some sources say C. moschata and C. yagiharana are one and the same, others, such as Cotsworld in UK, offer them as distinct species with this blooming a bit later - so we will also.  Until we study both, we're keeping them separate.  Deep dusky wine blooms in late summer/early fall.  Attractive tidy foliage all season.  An easy, congenial and very pretty plant!  Not bothered by pests, slowly spreads.  A relative of Penstemmon but a better choice than those for a shady, damp spot.

Fall Daisies - Chrysanthemum or Dendranthemas, Ajanias, Nipponanthecums, Leucanthemums

They're called, once again, Chrysanthemum BUT they're not the Fall Mum that you can find everywhere including the grocery store!  These are fabulous long lasting Perennials.  You may remember, they WERE originally called Chrysanthemums and then over a 3 year period, we were told by the folks in charge of Botanical nomenclature and classifications to change them to their new names.  Tag makers and sign makers and plant growers all gradually made the switch.   And then, about a year later after the official switch date, they changed the classification BACK to Chrysanthemums!  Argh-h-h-h-h-h!  We liked them under their previous names, Dendranthema, Ajania, etc.  People didn't confuse them with the inferior, not very perennial, Fall Mums.

Chrysanthemum X rubellum 'Will's Wonderful'     Dendranthema   Fall Daisy    Z: 5-9    Full sunLight/dappled shade

Chrysanthemum X rubellum 'Will's Wonderful'Well what a wild ride 'Will' took to get to us.  Former Martha Stewart Living writer, then editor Margaret Roach (now gardening author awaytogarden.com and when famed Seneca Hills Nursery quit carrying it, she started looking for a source to continue supplying it and contacted us,  Ellen Hornig owner of Seneca Hills was kind enough to share some and according to Margaret, 'Will' now has a new home here!

What's the fuss about?  Well he IS wonderful.  Not just another ho-hum Fall Mum, he's a star-of-the-garden Fall Mum and rather than try to write about a plant that a REAL writer has already described, let's just say:  Take it away Margaret  "finally, my favorite mumís back on the market"

Chrysanthemum weyrichii 'White Bomb' Just like the above but white.  A dwarf Dendranthema or hardy Mum. Looks like a 'Mum' but is an easy care, dependable perennial that doesn't need to be pinched, doesn't die out in the middle like 'Mums'. Short lived in heavy soil but easy in well-drained. Quickly makes a carpet.  A zone hardier than most hardy mums.
