One of six new Kniphofia (Red Hot Poker), a new genus to the Proven Winners lineup, Kniphofia PYROMANIA ‘Orange Blaze’ has stunning bright orange flowers that are proportionate to the foliage. Members of this series are hardy to USDA zones 5b or 6 and rebloom throughout the summer.
‘Cat’s Meow’ has been very popular for the Proven Winners program, and Nepeta ‘Cat’s Pajamas’ is a more compact version of the landscape plant. This is a little over half the height of ‘Cat’s Meow’ and as an added bonus, starts blooming about 2 to 3 weeks earlier. Perfect for timing crops at the garden center level.
With a combination of incredibly dark, nearly black foliage and 8-to-9-inch rich deep red flowers, Hibiscus SUMMERIFIC ‘Holy Grail’ is the perfect addition to your late summer lineup.
The flagship of the new series of Salvia nemorosa hybrids, ‘Perfect Profusion’ has especially good rebloom power, throwing up round after round of blooms when sheered back. Soft icy blue flowers cover the perfectly rounded plant.
