Ageratum

Ageratum Blue Horizon
1225. Ageratum Blue Horizon

This is an old favorite of mine because it really does everything I want in the garden. The powder blue button blooms grow on 30” strong stems. Cut them for your vase and they still keep coming. We also get lots of butterflies landing on ours especially in the fall during their final migrations. The deer have never bothered ours.

Calendula

1234. Calendula Bon Bon- NEW!

Colonists in the 1700s used these lovely plants in the gardens around the home because they were pretty and so very useful. Known as the "poor man's saffron" Calendula was used to flavor dishes. Medicinally they were made into extracts and ointments to aid in healing numerous health complaints. Even today they are used for many of the same reasons and are most commonly found in skin conditioning soaps. Let’s not forget they give the garden constant beauty and color. The “Bon Bon” flowers are large at 3” with double petals and bloom heavy and earlier than other calendula. Colors can include orange, apricot, yellow and light yellow.

It’s a random blend of varietal colors including Coral Nymph, Lady in Red, Snow Nymph and Forest Fire. They are all beautiful.
