Acorus gramineus 'Minimus Aureus'

Sweet Flag - Dwarf Golden Variegated

Dwarf Golden Sweet Flag is a wonderful plant for walkways as well as rain gardens and stream edges, because it is tolerant of foot traffic as well as significant moisture.  The evergreen foliage is like tiny thick bladed grass tufts and when crushed, it releases an attractive sweet scent.  The tufts slowly expand to make a short yellow-green mat.  Although it looks like a grass, Acorus gramineus 'Minimus Aureus' is actually more closely related to the Iris family.

Acorus gramineus 'Minimus Aureus'

Acorus gramineus 'Ogon'

Sweet Flag

'Ogon' Sweet Flag has bright yellow stiffly upright leaves that are a vivid addition to a wet site in the shade. The clumps of Acorus 'Ogon' get larger with age. This Sweet Flag is evergreen so it provides great winter interest.  Introduced into the U.S. by Barry Yinger.  Per Diane Guidone of Rumson, NJ, Acorus withstood salt inundation in the recent hurricanes really well.

Acorus gramineus 'Ogon'

Acorus gramineus 'Variegatus'

Sweet Flag

Variegated Sweet Flag is a wonderful wet site plant, tolerating periods of water immersion happily.  The Iris-like clumps slowly expand to cover a compact area, so Acorus 'Variegatus' performs well for erosion control along stream banks.  The fine, semi-evergreen sword-like leaves make a bright addition to bogs, rain garden and ponds.

Acorus gramineus 'Variegatus'

Allium 'Millenium'

Onion - Ornamental

'Millenium' Ornamental Onion blooms in July and August, producing lots of 2" lavender-purple round clusters of flowers like drumsticks on 15" stems.  The onion scented leaves are glossy and strap-like, making a thick clump from which the long lasting blooms arise.  Many insects and butterflies feed off them but deer and rabbits will not touch them.  All Ornamental Onions do well under Black Walnuts.  Allium 'Millenium' is the product of Mark McDonough's hard work with Ornamental Onions.

Allium 'Millenium'

Allium 'Sugar Melt'

Onion - Ornamental

'Sugar Melt' Ornamental Onion produces pale pink globular flower clusters in July and August, above tubular green leaves.  Deadheading increases the bloom period, and prevents excessive seedling production.  Alliums are easy to divide in fall, and the small bulbs lend themselves well to naturalizing, since they eventually result in large clumps.  The flowers and leaves have the scent of onions or chives, and will not be eaten by deer or rabbits.

Allium 'Sugar Melt'

Allium angulosum 'Summer Beauty'

Onion - Ornamental

‘Summer Beauty’ Ornamental Onion produces a quantity of flat refined strap-like leaves in spring, topped by soft pink round umbels on long stalks starting in June. Allium ‘Summer Beauty’ continues blooming almost all summer, and the dried round seedheads add interest to the winter landscape as well.

Roy Diblik of Northwind Perennial Farm introduced ‘Summer Beauty’ after finding it thriving in someone’s driveway.

Allium angulosum 'Summer Beauty'

Allium cernuum

Allium cernuum

Allium schoenoprasum 'Snowcap'

Chives

'Snowcap' Chives produces delicate white flowers above tubular foliage in early to mid summer.  The bloom period is prolonged if Allium 'Snowcap' is deadheaded, which also keeps it from seeding itself in flowerbeds.  The leaves are edible (this is a cultivar of edible chives), but are not touched by deer or rabbits.  Alliums are bulbs, so 'Snowcap' is easily divided when dormant.  A Mark McDonough introduction.

Allium schoenoprasum 'Snowcap'
