Nepetas - The Fabulous Catmints - Indestructible Blooming Machines!

If you think of Nepetas as 'Just Herbs', better think again.  They ARE herbs, useful in teas, etc. and one is the true catnip.  BUT they are also, given some sun and decent drainage, indestructible blooming machines.  Beautiful (usually) blue blooms for months on end, soft blue green foliage and an agreeable disposition.  Like many pungent herbs, they are not only deer resistant but help protect plants around them as their scent perfumes the air to confuse the deer's sense of smell..  So take a look -- they're superb perennials -- and your sunny garden should have more than one!

Nepeta longipes     Lilac Catmint    Sunin cool areas Light ShadePart Shade    Zone: 3-8

Nepeta longipesAnother rare, hard to find Nepeta noted for the LILAC color blooms (most are blue to violet).  Gray green leave on purplish stems are highly aromatic when brushed making deer avoid them.  The two-lipped, 1/2" long aromatic lilac blooms are clustered in branching spikes from May thru July.  Shear after bloom for another Fall bloom.  The RHS suggests that this is probably a hybrid involving N. multibracteata.   Best in some shade in areas with hot, humid summers.

What you're saying about us...

"Thank you Deb for my Montauk Daisy plants!!!  They arrived yesterday in great condition.  I planted them last evening and tucked them in with a hug and a kiss!  I am so excited to have these plants.  I have been searching for them for several years after admiring my mom's spectacular plant in Connecticut.  I am hoping they will love living in Illinois.  If you have any special hints to make them flourish, I am very receptive!!  Thanks again for the love and attention you put into your work.  It shows!"                                       Sharon, Dundee, IL

FYI  My 'special hint' was something to the effect, "Plant them in well-drained soil then walk away and tend to something fussy!"  I love this dependable plant!      Debby, Lazy S'S Farm

A great mound of  foliage and bloom throughout the season. (Note:  Many folks think 'Walker's Low' is "Low" in height but it's actually named after a place in England.  If you want a truly 'low' Catmint, look at Nepeta 'Kit Kat'.

Nerine angustifolia    Ribbon Leaved Guernsey Lily, Cape Flower        Zone: 9-10      

Nerine angustifolia    Ribbon Leaved Guernsey Lily, Cape FloweA seldom seen species with leaves to 12" long which appear with or just after the blooms which are held above the leaves, are a soft shell pink with wavy margins in the upper half of each petal and recurved tips.  Generally bloom spikes have 6-10 flowers on a mature bulb.  This is a fall blooming species in South Africa and Saziland.  It's easy of culture and flowers dependably.  Hardy only in the deep South or South West, the rest of us must enjoy it in pots brought in for winter (where it's generally evergreen) but it's easy in GOOD potting soil as well.  In nature, even in warm zones, it's often dormant in the off season but does need some moisture even in the off season.  Found in acid wetland marshes.

Nerine undulata        Guernsey Lily, Cape FloweA summer growing species native to South Africa,  Nerine undulata, one of the best of the Genus, occurs on steep slopes in partial shade.  For most of us, their zone means pots culture but they're easy and almost evergreen, just a short period of dormancy where the leaves yellow then are almost immediately replaced.  Soft pink, crinkled, spider-like flowers are produced with exuberance.  Bloom production is matched by bulb production which means you'll quickly have enough to see the blooms in mass which is when they're at their best.  They multiply profusely!  You can also grow them outdoors anywhere and lift them for dry storage in the Fall as you would any tender bulb.  Dappled shade is best.

Oenothera 'Fireworks'AKA O. tetragona 'Fireworks', Oenothera fruticosa 'Fireworks' (Fyrverkeri)

This plant is very confused in the trade and is almost always the wrong plant!   We offer the TRUE FIREWORKS.  It took us over 3 years to locate the real plant.  Most are just the species without the red buds.  Ho-hum!  Also sold as 'Illumination', this is a beauty by any name. It has terminal clusters of deep yellow, cup-shaped flowers which arise in early summer from waxy red buds on creeping, semi-evergreen rosettes of shiny leaves. Good spreader but still a more compact form than the species and neater in habit (in a genus that does have some unruly relatives!)  In a large garden, a grouping of 3-5 creates a focal point of its 'can't be missed' color.  In the smaller garden, even one can have impact.

Oxalis grifithii 'Double Pink'    Japanese Shamrock. Wood Sorrel     Zone: 6-9      

Oxalis grifithii 'Double Pink'    Japanese Shamrock. Wood SorrelJapanese woodland Oxalis with green, rough-textured leaves and up-facing fully double pink flowers. Easy in woodsy soil in moist shade. This is a outstanding Oxalis selection from Japan. It makes small tidy clumps with short rhizomes and in this rare selection, beautiful double pink flowers. Expensive because it's a rare double but it's not a fussy, hard to grow expensive plant! The first year or two, they often have 'immature' single blooms. Don't panic -- they're just getting settled in, working on roots, etc. Then they'll stun you with the double blooms.
