Plants of the Week of June 29th
Midnight Raider Daylily is a reblooming bi-color daylily that reaches 30 inches tall with sturdy scapes to support the burgundy blooms. Does well in 4 or more hours of sun just like other daylilies. Daylilies can handle all sorts of soil conditions and exposures.
Fireworks Rodgersia is a shade perennial with cool foliage interest. It does have pink flowers in summer but I think it looks like a dinosaur plant. Reaches 3 feet tall and spreads 5 feet wide. Would work well with Hostas and Hydrangeas.
Drop Dead Red Rose is a floribunda rose (blooms in clusters) that blooms heavily true red blooms. It's glossy color compliments it's the flowers as well as it is very disease resistant. One of my favorite red roses. It grows to about 3 to 4 feet tall and wide.
