Peek into the future this winter with new varieties from Creek Hill Nursery, formally announced at the January MANTS trade show in Baltimore, Maryland. Available for shipping this spring, these crops can be ordered through your favorite broker, via the Creek Hill shopping cart, or directly by email or phone. Below are a few highlights from this year’s collection.
Polmonium’ Golden Feathers’
‘Golden Feathers’ has several outstanding features. The most notable is the bright golden-yellow color, especially very early in the season when it’s cool. More green creeps in as the leaves age, but the center remains golden through the season. Under the hood are two other important features. The variegation is very stable. The yellow striping will remain on plant after plant, year after year. The other feature is its sun performance. It thrives in full sun, successful in southern gardens. Summer heat tolerance is surprisingly good, even in Alabama.
Two New Echinaceas
A pom-style echinacea, this plant has the renaissance breeding we like: longer lifespan, better winter performance, big flower count, strong stems, and stubborn disease resistance, all underneath the bright yellow color.
Dahlia-style Echinaceas emerge from the double and sometimes triple ring of flowers surrounding the eye, known as the ring petals. It’s a new look for flowers, and ‘Sweet Fuchsia’ is one of the best.
