Plants of the Week for July 16th
The Earlybird Oriole Daylily is an orange re-blooming daylily! Orange dayliles rarely re-bloom or bloom for very long. To get a variety that goes most of summer with dead heading is awesome! It reaches 18 to 24 inches tall and wide. Prefers full to partial sun and is durable like any other daylily. Great to be out in front of boxwoods or barberry.
Sombrero Sangrita Coneflower produces deep red orange flowers throughout summer. This rich color can be kept going by removing spent blooms. Plant in sunny hot spots. Coneflowers tolerate light shade. Sangrita reaches 18 to 24 inches and 24 inches wide. Goes well with Black eyed Susan, Blanketflower and Lavender. They like drier spot, so don’t put them in poorly drained areas of the yard.
