New Lily in Bloom. Longfield Gardens celebrates spring with the new ‘Kaveri lily’ - a cross breed of two classics, the lily combines the bright colors and bud-count of Asiatic with the fragrance, strength and size of Oriental.
The Kaveri lily, taller and fuller than a typical Asiatic, has strong, 4-foot stems. It produces up to eight buds that open into large, upward-facing blossoms and feature an array rich, bold colors like yellow-gold, tangerine and brick red.
In addition to standing out in the garden, the lily also makes a statement in bouquets due to its long vase life.
The Kaveri lily blooms in early summer, right after peonies and irises. For best results, plant bulbs in a sunny location with well-drained, fertile soil.
With breathtaking spring and fall foliage, Pink Icing™ is sure to standout in any garden. Spring brings a lovely new foliage color that has varying shades of pink mixed with blue and deeper greens.
In winter, Pink Icing’s foliage takes on a stunning iridescent turquoise blue foliage hue, which looks striking when planted en masse. Perfect for small spaces on patios or decks, Pink Icing will grow 3-4 feet tall with a slightly spreading habit. Enjoy its large, sweet berries during mid-summer. Grow in full sun in zones 5-10.
Homeowners that use an organic fertilizer, such as Espoma’s annual feeding program, can rest easy knowing that their chemical-free lawns are safe for people, pets and the planet. It is possible to achieve a lush, green lawn with Espoma’s environmentally safe products that feed plants naturally, without the use of pesticides and other synthetic ingredients.
This vigorous series is perfect for large containers, baskets and landscape beds. These plants perform best in full or partial sun in well-drained soil. Other colors in the collection include Sumo Pink and Sumo Bold Lilac. These colorful beauties are bred to show a multitude of huge flowers.
Suntory continues to be a leader in the industry by seeking continuous pride as a result of their wide varieties of plants with excellent garden performance and outstanding longevity.
