Echinacea 'Mango Meadowbrite' is topped with 3" wide, mango-colored (RHS 21A), fragrant flower heads surrounding a slightly darker orange central cone. Actually, the color is closer to orange-mustard, but that doesn't sound quite as appealing. This is a stunning plant in flower that is sure to stand out in the garden. It was named Echinacea 'CBG Cone3', which is an invalid cultivar name, so we renamed it Echinacea 'Mango Meadowbrite'. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #05881

SunZone: 5-8 10" tall Origin: USA Hybrid
Open House/Web-Only! You've grown to expect something different from Plant Delights, so here it is after 8 years of trials. Richard Saul of Itsaul Plants in Georgia made some echinacea crosses in the mid-'90s (Echinacea paradoxa x purpurea) and passed along seed to us. We selected Echinacea 'Paranoia' as the star, due to its compact 10" tall x 1' wide growth habit, and lovely rigid yellow flowers. This is a huge breakthrough in echinaceas that foreshadows more exciting introductions. So far, it has proven to be completely sterile, so don't look for any seedlings. Doesn't everyone need a little paranoia in their garden? Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #05355

The result is a charming 18" tall x 2' wide compact clump, composed of sturdy flowering stems that end in mid-sized, flat-petaled pink flowers that rebloom all summer...a real winner! Since it was given the illegitimate name of CBG Cone 2, we have renamed it using their illegal trademark name of E. 'Pixie Meadowbrite' as the cultivar name. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #07574

Echinacea purpurea 'Green Envy' (Green Envy Coneflower)

SunZone: 4-9 20" tall Origin: USA
When Mark Veeder first showed me a photo of his new Echinacea purpurea seedling, I thought for sure this was an April Fool's Photoshop creation. Only after growing and photographing the plant myself, can I say for sure, it is truly this unique. The 20" tall stems are topped, starting in mid-June, with large 4.5" wide flowers composed of a dark cone with a green center. Surrounding the cone, are long petals that are pink toward the cone changing to lime-green toward the downward recurving tips. E.

Purple coneflower is extremely drought-tolerant, although it does favor improved garden conditions. Plant a drift, sit back with drink in hand, and wait for the butterflies!

Open House/Web-Only! Echinacea 'Kim's Red Knee High' is a mutation of Echinacea 'Kim's Knee High', discovered at Connecticut's Sunny Border Nursery in 2005. Echinacea 'Kim's Red Knee High' has the same vigorous growth, short habit and attractively reflexed petals of its parent. The name red, however, is problematic...another example of male color-blindness and why you never ask men to describe a color. The color is actually a richer, darker pink than the parent, but nothing close to red. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08701

'Pink Poodle' boasts rounded, double pink flowers that look like one of those overly-clipped poodle tails, atop well-branched, sturdy 3' tall stems in the summer months...at least they've bred out that incessant yapping from its namesake.

Part Sun to ShadeZone: 7b-10, colder with protection 72" tall Origin: China
Open House/Web-Only! This stunning member of the daphne family is one of our most prized plants in the garden. All summer, the 6' tall x 6' wide umbrella-shaped clump, supported by a smooth brown trunk, is adorned with plumeria-like leaves. The foliage drops in mid-December to reveal both the wonderful bark and the large silvery flower buds. The flower buds open steadily from mid-January to early April, producing an overwhelmingly fragrant display of pendent, golden yellow flowers. Edgeworthia chrysantha is much more winter hardy (below 0 degrees F) than Edgeworthia papyrifera, and much easier to grow. We have finally named the clone we selected for large foliage and flowers and have sold without a cultivar name for the last decade. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #02246

Ensete maurelii (Red Abyssinian Banana)

Sun to Part SunZone: 8-10 120" tall Origin: E. Africa
We have long been amazed at this superb dwarf ornamental banana from the high mountains of East Africa, and we are thrilled to be able to finally share. Growing to only 10' tall in temperate climates (20' tall in tropical areas), Ensete maurelii makes a superb ornamental for the summer border. Each leaf can reach gigantic proportions of 10' long. The most ornamental characteristic is that the foliage is flushed with burgundy-red, especially concentrated as the new growth emerges. The higher the light levels, the stronger the coloration. We have also seen this used in large summer containers with great effect. Pot size: 2 qt. (1.892 L) #04790
