Deinanthe caerulea      False Hydrangea           Zone:    5-7      

Deinanthe caeruleaA delightful blue species from China, similar to D. bifida from Japan but with nodding blue flowers that slowly forms a mound of lovely foliage and lilac to lavender blue blooms.  Prefers a cool spot in the garden, mulch well, dislikes hot summers and these help.   It's a perennial that can easily be mistaken for a shrub.  But it's the bloom that will linger in your memory from the first time you see it until you own it so that seeing it ever June is certainty.

Delphinium exaltatum    American Bee Larkspur     Zone: 5-7  

Delphinium exaltatumOne of our favorite Delphiniums 'cause it thumbs it's nose at heat and humidity, of which we have a plenty!  Beautiful 1" long Gentian Blue to Purple Larkspur type blooms in this East Coast Native over a period of 2 months from July through September.  This species blooms later, is taller and has more abundant foliage than most other native U.S. larkspurs.  Altogether, a well, must-have especially for the cottage garden.  Best in mass but that will happen with time as it gently self-seeds.

Fall Daisies - Dendranthema now renamed back to their original name Chrysanthemum

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 'new' names.  People didn't confuse them with the inferior, not too perennial, fall Mums.

 

Dendranthema are now back on the Ce-Ci Page under their old, now new name Chrysanthemum!

It has nothing at all to do with the color Pink, although many 'Pinks' are Pink!  It's because the blooms often have fringed flower petals that look as if they've been cut with 'Pinking Shears'.

Dianthus barbatus nigrescens   Sooty Sweet William  Zone: 3-9         

Dianthus barbatus nigrescens   Sooty Sweet WilliamFragrant short lived perennial Dianthus that hails from the mountains of Europe and that just blooms itself silly with Maroon Chocolate flowers from spring to Frost. Small flowers held in dense, flat-topped terminal clusters (3-5” wide).  Short lived but self seeds and then blooms the first year from seed so does persist in your garden. Prompt deadheading of old flowers (shear back large numbers) promotes perennial tendencies.  Best in full sun but appreciates a bit of afternoon shades in hotter zones.

Dicentra x 'King of Hearts'   Hybrid Blue Foliage Bleeding Heart   Z: 3-8   

Dicentra x 'King of Hearts'A wonderful new Cut-Leaf bleeding heart with a marvelous blue cast to the foliage. Place it beside Baccanal, Luxuriant, etc. and you can pick it out every time due to the much bluer foliage which is even more cut and finer textured than the others.  Sterile so the carmine rose blooms just keep coming and coming all season in cool areas. Does want moisture but in well-drained soil.  The parents include Dicentra peregrina from Japan crossed with D. formosa subsp. oregona crossed with D. eximia.  Also the bloom itself is much improved over other cut-leaf Bleeding Hearts.  This one sets the standard for everblooming Bleeding Hearts.

Disporum flavum  (D. uniflorum & D. sessile var flavens)   Korean Fairybells       Zone: 4-9A    

Disporum flavumRare but in the trade under a number of aliases, it's true name is Disporum flavum.  It emerges in late spring with the multiple flower buds almost immediately visible on each stem and blooming quickly thereafter with large, showy yellow bells. To the uninitiated, it looks like a large Solomon Seal. It takes 2-3 years to develop a good root system and can occasionally be divided after that.  Easily, the most impressive of the genus for blooms.  The yellow bells are followed by black berries in summer.
