I reckon that Wonderful Day® astilbe should be prescribed instead of Valium. Just look at it and admit that it makes your heart melt at least a bit with its cheerful colour. It produces fluffy plumes of bright pink flowers on green stems on a plant reaching about 40 cm tall. They bloom from mid June for 3-4 weeks and, conditions pending, re-bloom sporadically until late summer. Healthy leaves are deciduous, bright green, glossy and palmately divided. Wonderful Day® astilbe makes compact tufts. It was bre ...entire article
Autumn monkshood, sometimes also called azure monkshood, is a showy and tall perennial flowering from late summer till autumn. It produces erect racemes of large, hooded flowers of deep violet blue flowers from September till October. The throat is decorated with dark grey stamens. The inflorescence is an erect raceme and sits atop sturdy stems one and a half (or a little more) meters tall. The wise thing about this monkhood is that even though the blooming time is very late in the season, it offers something more to gain your attention early in the seaso ...entire article
Pink Beauty is a rather special variety of snowball viburnum. Its flowers are composed in umbrella-shaped terminal panicles. Central flowers are tiny and fertile, and on the outskirts are borne large and showy sterile flowers. Those emerge pure snow-white and stay white for about two weeks. Then they turn pale pink just like some Japanese dogwoods. Blooming usually begins in about mid May and lasts for almost 4 weeks. Fertile flowers are followed by handsome fruit in late summer: small, almost transparent, glossy, ova ...entire article
GENTLE is a small blue holly with evergreen leaves. They are ovate, highly glossy, serrated at margins but non-prickly, deep green in the growing season and deep purple blue during the coldest months. As a male variety it bears no fruit but it blooms profusely from young age which makes it an ideal pollinator for many female hollies (not just blue hollies) that produce berries in autumn. It forms compact, well-branched shrubs of a slender vase-shaped habit, reaching some 70-80 cm in height and a bit less in width. ...entire article
Candidissimum is a fragrant viburnum variety whose name means ‘very white’. It is easy to infer that it will bear the whitest of white flowers. They are small, tubular, intensely sweetly scented, and composed in partially hanging clusters about 5 cm across. The inflorescence recalls that of Dawn viburnum but is smaller and less spherical. Fragrant viburnum makes a handsome shrub even when not in bloom. It has a rounded, compact, bushy habit with upright branches, and nice foliage. The leaves are deciduo ...entire article
CORALLINA is a Fraser’s photinia variety bred by Andre Bourquin from a town Bordèrez-sur-l'Èchez (S.W. France near the Spanish border) in 1994 by self-pollinating Red Robin variety and subsequent selection of seedlings. The result is a handsome plant of shorter growth and unique foliage. I must confess that with so many existing photinia varieties in trade I had a somewhat skeptical approach when I was to examine it as a novelty. But all my doubts fell apart as soon as I took it in my arms and the plan ...entire article

torch lily (Kniphofia "'ICE QUEEN'")
Ice Queen is the possibly the closest to white torch lily variety to date. Many botanists believe that genetically, a torch lily will never produce pure snow white, so Ice Queen can easily be considered a miracle. It was selected by the British horticulturist Alan Bloom (1906-2005), who devoted much of his life to breeding perennials, and introduced over 150 new varieties. Ice Queen torch lily belongs among tall varieties, and in my garden it is an important accent in the camellia border with ferns where it looks b ...entire article

These perennials are easy to grow, they will like almost any well-drained soil, they do well in rocker ...entire article
Atropunicea is a copper beech variety from the atropurpurea group but not a synonym for forma purpurea as often described. Atropunicea is a vegetatively propagated variety which keeps its characteristics and is much smaller that the species, nearly half its size. It features maroon foliage which is brighter when young, turning darker to purple-green when mature, and in autumn changing to copper red. Naturally it forms feathered trees with uneven trunks which need staking to become straight. In nurseries they are o ...entire article
Rancho is a small-leaved linden variety sought-after for its slow growth and much smaller size in maturity. It was bred by Edward Scanlon from Olmsted Falls in Ohio, USA, and introduced in 1961. It makes dense canopies with branches growing at an angle of 30-45 ° making the canopy almost impenetrable. Its habit is narrowly conical in young trees and becomes oval with age. Ultimate height usually does not exceed 8 m in gardens and 12 m in parks, and its spread is roughly half this size. Linden is a long-lived tree. ...entire article
Kevin Hurd from Walters Gardens nursery in Michigan, USA, is a perennial breeder and among his targets are e.g., pinks, hardy hibiscus, and daisies. Banana Cream Shasta daisy is his work of art which he created in 2008 by crossing l. ‘Leumayel’ and l. ‘Sunny Side Up’. The result is a variety with 10-12 cm wide flowers with two layers of ray florets and large yellow discs. They are banana yellow as they emerge and mature to cream. Individual flowers excel in longevity (up to 4 weeks) and com ...entire article
IceCream™ is a Dutch series of hardy iceplants introduced by Florensis BV. Why Ice Cream?

Petite Pink crepe myrtle belongs to the Petite series which means 'small' in French and that's exactly what all of its varieties are.

In Central European climate, it blooms from mid-August and continues for as long as it has buds, sometimes for up to 2 months. Deciduous leaves are broadly oval, very glossy, de ...entire article
Sapphire Skies is a valued beaked yucca variety with a more pronounced leaf colour. It is a tree-like yucca with evergreen, rich blue-green, silver-frosted leaves with jade hues.

beaked yucca (Yucca rostrata)
Beaked yucca is a tree-like yucca with evergreen, steel-blue leaves formed in a dense rosette. The blades are 40-60 cm long and only 1-1.5 cm wide. You can also come across specimens with a thin yellow margin but those do not seem to be considered separate or named varieties, only mutations of the species.
