Plants of the Week for September 29th
Double Scoop Orangeberry is a double coneflower with rich orange red blooms. It’s been bred to have study stems which has been a problem with previous hybrids. Like other coneflowers it enjoys full sun, flowers from mid summer until fall when the spent flowers are removed periodically. It grows to 24 inches tall. This is a great addition when craving something orange and to attract butterflies.
Dark Towers Beadtongue loves heat and dry conditions. It also has bronze foliage to contrast blue grey foliage that tends to be the major color for drought tolerant plant leaves. In mid to late summer it blooms pink tube shaped flowers that ideal for hummingbirds. It reaches three feet tall and is striking with it’s foliage when not in bloom. It caught my eye in the greenhouse with it’s bronze glory.
