With our friends at North Creek Nursery in Pennsylvania, we've assembled a 20-plant collection that provides continuous blooms and colorful foliage for months. A warm season bunch grass, Purple Love Grass has panicles of reddish purple flowers that rise above the foliage in late summer. Its narrow, light green leaves turn stunning bronze-red in autumn. Prairie Dropseed features fine-textured, deep green foliage with lovely, light and airy flowers. In the fall, its foliage turns glowing, pumpkin orange. Gilded Lace Coreopsis delivers prolific flowers from late summer through fall. Its lacy, fernlike foliage grows up to 4' tall and is mildew resistant. Pollinators love the clusters of sweetly scented, lavender flowers on Jeana Phlox. Blooming from midsummer through early fall, this phlox possesses outstanding mildew resistance. Raydon's Favorite Aster, one of our most reliable native perennial asters, has a strikingly beautiful mounded appearance with masses of violet-blue, daisylike flowers on 2-3' tall plants. Blooming from mid to late autumn, it is a preferred nectar source for many butterfly species.
