As-Au

ASPERULA A sizeable genus in the Rubiaceae, the name refers to the rough bedstraw like stems, containing some of the finest cushion plants known to man. Long cultivated for the fantastic cushions smothered in long tubed pink flowers. We offer a fair selection and trust me on this you want them all, and with the exception of the furry ones they are rather easy plants in the open garden.

Asclepias tuberosa

Asclepias tuberosa

Perennial Plant of the Year for 2017!!! A must have plant if your tastes run to the bright colors. For us, tops out at about 18 inches, with masses of vivid orange flowers in late summer. The intense color of the flowers is always, for us, complimented by equally vivid monarch butterfly caterpillars and adults, as this is one of their favorite food plants. Best with good drainage and full sun, though it can take partial shade. Zone 5 Joseph
