    Meehan's Mint is a lovely native groundcover that thrives in shade. The low trailing foliage is covered with bright blue flowers in late spring. The clean, neat leaves form a good green mat in average to moist locations. Hummingbirds and bees are attracted to the flowers, and deer leave them alone. What could be better?

    Virginia Bluebells are pink in bud and the nodding bells turn a bright lavender-blue as they open above blue-green foliage. The leaves usually turn yellow and disappear by mid summer, so it is best to use these with other, later, shade perennials. In a moist setting they will slowly colonize a large area.

    Eastern Bee Balm produces pinkish-lavender flowers in early summer. The form is like a little lavender crown on the ends of the light purple stems. Butterflies and insects rely on this native member of the Mint family for food, so you get more than just flowers when Monarda bradburiana is in your garden. Dry site tolerant and fragrant foliage.  This is Stephanie Cohen's favorite Monarda particularly for meadow applications.  One of the native plants chosen by Piet Oudolf for the newly planted meadow garden at Delaware Botanic Gardens.

    Sugar Buzz® 'Cherry Pops' Bee Balm is one of a series of new showy Monardas from Walters Gardens of Michigan.  The large cherry red flowers are produced mid to late summer over disease resistant dark green foliage.  The stems are sturdy and upright, so Sugar Buzz® 'Cherry Pops' makes an excellent cut flower.  Pollinators and hummingbirds cluster around the blooms, and the aromatic foliage is also attractive.  Unlike some taller Monardas, Sugar Buzz® 'Cherry Pops' does not overrun the whole perennial bed.

    Sugar Buzz® 'Cotton Candy' Bee Balm comes from the tireless work of Hans Hansen of Walters Gardens.  The Sugar Buzz® series is a line of compact, disease resistant Monardas, and 'Cotton Candy' adds soft pink midsummer flowers to the line  These Monardas are good in perennial borders because they do not spread aggressively and they stay compact.  Hummingbirds and pollinators love the July and August food source and deer and rabbits leave the aromatic foliage alone.

    Junior Walker™ Catmint ('Novanepjun') is a seedling of Nepeta 'Walker's Low' that was chosen because it has a neat compact habit and does not seed itself around the garden.  The violet-blue flowers start in early June, and continue all summer if deadheaded occasionally.  The compact habit of Junior Walker™ makes it an excellent candidate for containers and borders.  An introduction by Star Roses.

    PRN Preferred:  A wonderful flower display on a neater, more compact plant.

    Dwarf Mondo Grass is an excellent evergreen groundcover between stepping stones because it has good tolerance for moderate foot traffic.  The delicate strap-like leaves are dark green and very uniform.  This plant is a good grass-like substitute for lawns in shady areas.  Dwarf Mondo Grass is very useful for water run off in shade, as well as water absorption on shady green roofs.  A member of the Asparagus family (as you can tell by the occasional blue fruit).

    Black Mondo Grass or Lily Turf is a slow growing groundcover with interesting blackish purple strap-like leaves.  The habit is clumping but slowly spreading.  The short flower spikes have subtle lavender bell-shaped flowers which are followed by small shiny purple berries.  The blooms appear in July and August, emerging from the foliage clumps.  Leaf color is darkest in full sun, although O. 'Nigrescens' tolerates shade well.  This is the same plant as O. 'Nigra'.
