Renovation

Every year brings improvements and new additions to the greenhouse and garden areas. After more than twenty years of wear and tear, new metal tables were installed in the area between the perennial houses. The pavers between the tables and underneath them were redone as well. Galvanized metal tables have been added to one of the annual bedding plant houses too. The result is very pleasing, and will make keeping it clean much easier.

 

Perennial of the year Stachys Hummelo
Perennial of the year Stachys Hummelo

Plants in the spot light

Stachys 'Hummelo' is this year's Perennial Plant Of The Year. It is not as well known as Salvia and Veronica, but it is a very nice, hardy perennial plant that we have grown with success for years. Pollinators can't resist the striking midsummer spikes of magenta flowers rising above bright green, trouble-free foliage. 'Hummelo' was the highest rated Stachys in the Chicago Botanic Garden Evaluation Trials for its strong flower production, vigor, habit, quality and winter hardiness. Stachys' strong stems and seed heads add to winter interest. Considered deer-resistant!
