New Plants for a New Year!

  • Hybrid Echinaceas and selections of Echinacea purpurea are among the most spectacular new plants for American landscape designs in 2008. I write about them in my latest articles at Landscaping@Suite101:
  1. Echinacea Selections in Landscapes: New Cultivars Can Enhance Prairie and Meadow Gardens, and
  2. Up-to-the-minue Echinacea Hybrids: Enhance Prairie Landscape and Meadow Garden Designs.
  • These new offerings, when seen in catalog photos, are a lot like eye-candy. Will they really work in your landscape garden design as well as their stalwart North American native ancestors like Echinacea purpurea? Only time will really tell. But meanwhile you might get some good ideas about evaluating and shopping for them at New Plants for the New Year.
  • I hope you enjoy the lovely photos that accompany this Blog entryas much as I did!
