The intensity and brightness of Delosperma Delmara Fuchsia from Green Fuse Botanicals is an excellent accompaniment to yellow, orange, red and pink in this award-winning series of delosperma. Delmara has a tight, wellrounded habit that produces year-long masses of flowers throughout the plant, not just on the tips like other delosperma series. The Delmara series was bred from alpine delosperma, so not only does it bloom year-round without the need for lighting or vernalization, it is also Zone 3 hardy

A petite new addition to the popular SunSparkler sedum series, ‘Angelina’s Teacup’ is a mini of sedum ‘Angelina’ presented by Emerald Coast Growers. As the smallest SunSparkler and the first non-blooming ‘Angelina’, it forms a tight groundcover just 3 inches tall and 18 inches wide. Its bright yellow foliage lasts into fall, when cool temperatures bring on a blush of orange. ‘Angelina’s Teacup’ prefers full sun and is hardy in Zones 3-9.

Heucherella ‘Peach Tea’ from Terra Nova Nurseries has large peachy-red leaves that contrast beautifully with its cream-white flowers. This plant is vigorous and compact while also offering a glow of daintiness to the landscape. Heucherella ‘Peach Tea’ works well in a container, in a mass-planting and as a summer border. USDA Hardiness Zones for Heucherella ‘Peach Tea” are 4-9. It has a mature plant height of 12 inches, a width of 22 inches and an extended flower height of 17 inches.
