I love the color on this Clematis. It was only recently introduced into America. Clematis Rebecca was launched at the 2008 Chelsea Flower Show and named after Raymond Evison's oldest daughter Rebecca. An all-time favorite of gardeners everywhere in the world. A plant that is happy either growing in a garden location or in a container for the deck garden, patio, or outdoor dining area. As a garden plant, it can be grown in association with either wall-trained or free-standing shrubs, or up into other plants growing up and over an archway or pergola.

Proven Winners, has consistently been producing some of the best new varieties every year. One of my favorite new introductions for this year is Superbells Holy Moly. Super vibrant constrasty colors of yellow and cherry red flowers make this a stunning eye catcher. Although it has petunia-like flowers this is really a Calibrachoa. The deep throated flowers are extremely attractive to hummingbirds. Deadheading is not necessary. These will grow 6-10” tall. They trail, so they are also good in hanging baskets and containers. They are cold and heat tolerant, so they will flower for many months continuously. I would love to see these inter-planted with a dark purple flower. Mixing this with petunia Stary Night will give you a unique ou...

Just arrived! There are so many Petunia varieties, that I’m usually underwhelmed when a new one is introduced. However, when I saw Petunia Night Sky for the first time, I knew I needed this one for my own garden. Night Sky’s one of the most eye-catching petunias that I’ve seen in a long time. White spots, on dark violet flowers remind me of the ever changing star constellations. It has a semi trailing habit which makes it ideal for use in containers, and hanging baskets. Since it will spread, I am going to plant it in some of my flower beds. It will do best in full sun. I am going to interplant mine with Euphorbia ‘Diamond Frost’ as I think it will help accent the white splotches on the petals.
