281. Cyperus alternifolia – Wild Spike
A unique plant, Wild Spike is excellent as a mixed container plant or indoor houseplant. The foliage is rich, with a delicate texture. Flowers heads are small, but add an interesting contrast to the foliage. (Sakata Seed)

2. Oenothera - ‘Lemon Drop’
This plant is the award winner among the new introductions, proudly holding the “Editor’s Choice Award” from Country Living Gardener magazine. This new evening primrose is covered with vibrant lemon yellow flowers all summer, even when the temperatures sizzle. Be prepared to see ‘Lemon Drop’ highly publicized in consumer lifestyle publications this spring! (Proven Winners)

3. Viola ‘Columbine’
Viola ‘Columbine’ is a tireless performer with attractive purple and white marbled flowers that appear from early spring until late fall. It flowers non-stop in areas with moderate summers, especially if given a spot in partial to full shade. With its 3 ft. stems, it makes an exquisite addition to mini-bouquets, but is equally suitable for containers. A rewarding little plant with a very free-flowering habit! (Proven Selections)

4. Geranium - ‘Jolly Bee’
A favourite among butterflies, Geranium ‘Jolly Bee’ stands out with its non-stop display of deep blue flowers from May through October. Its excellent mounding and compact habit makes it a superb choice not only for the garden, but also for mixed containers. (Proven Winners)
