TOP PICK SUMMER ANNUAL

Chinese Foxglove
Rehmannia elata

We don't think any garden should be without this lovely plant. It grows fast and produces large beautiful flowers from early summer until the hard frost knocks it down. In warmer zones it acts like a perennial and will come back year after year. In zone 6 it might overwinter if its not too harsh and has some mulching, or it may self seed a little. Reseeding every year is the best option. The luscious flowers bloom and bloom giving the garden an exotic look. Likes full sun in zones 6 and lower, with some dappled shade for zones 7 and higher. Blooms best in cooler temperatures so picking an area where it wont get too hot or can pick up a breeze is ideal. Not fussy about soil type but does like a well drained soil. Plants can grow to 2 feet wide and 3 feet tall so allow space when setting out plants. Blooms prolifically first year from seed. Water daily for best results using a soaker hose or drip irritation. Can tolerate watering once a week but flowers will not be as prolific. Added bonus is deer and rabbits don't seem to eat it. We don't think any garden should be without this exotic beauty. Add it to your list of garden plants. More info.

Fpr Organic Lawns
White Clover (Trifolium repens) Bird's Foot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)
Add this to your lawn and stop having to fertilze it. Clover fixes nitrogen which helps your grass. If you want less maintenance and a greener ‘lawn’ this is a must. More info.
More about natural lawns.
Tolerates heat and drought extremely well and also fixes nitrogen so it helps fertilize the plants around it. Trefoil is a low growing bushy plant that also tolerates foot traffic and cutting very well making it an ideal plant for walkways and inclusion in a lawn, or an interesting border plant. Great for hot dry areas. More info
