    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.

    Wild Beramot is a lovely native perennial that thrives in prairie conditions and poor soil sites.  The pinking lavender tube-like flowers are held in a circle around the bracts, and persist through mid to late summer.  The aromatic foliage is deer resistant and smells minty when brushed against.  Monarda fistulosa is a good addition to wild flower gardens and prairie gardens.  Wild Bergamot is a reliable self-seeder and a wonderful butterfly and hummingbird attractor.

    Horsemint or Spotted Bee Balm is a native which flourishes in sandy or well drained sites.  The tubular creamy pink flowers are spotted with purple, but their pinkish green lanceolate bracts are really the attention grabbers.  The circular flower clusters extend up the purplish stems for an extended time in July and August, providing important food for butterflies, pollinators and hummingbirds.  The leaves are narrow and fragrant when touched.  Monarda punctata gets the common name Horsemint because it used to be used as medicine for horses.

    Sugar Buzz® 'Bubblegum Blast' Bee Balm has an amazing number of bright pink flowers starting in July.  The Sugar Buzz® series from Hans Hanson and Walters Gardens is notable for the compact habit and the excellent mildew resistance.  The 2" blooms are held on strong upright stems, so Monarda x 'Bubblegum Blast', works especially well in containers as well as perennial borders.  The showy flowers are a great source of nectar for both hummingbirds and pollinators.

    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.

    ‘Cat’s Pajamas’ starts blooming in late spring and continues all summer if periodically sheared after blooming. The numerous flowers on this compact plant are an intense blue and this improved Catmint blooms from the soil to the tips of the dark stems.  Even when the flowers are past peak, the rosy purple calyxes add interest to the garden. The habit is compact and dense, making Nepeta x ‘Cat’s Pajamas’ a good “easy care” filler for sunny perennial borders and rock gardens. Nepetas are excellent pollinator attractants and are impervious to deer. From Walters Gardens’ breeding program.

    PRN Preferred: Compact habit plus very showy large blue flower spikes for an extended display.

    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.

    Montauk Daisy has single white daisies that are borne profusely in September and October over glossy succulent-like foliage. Very salt tolerant. It went from Nipponanthemum to Chrysanthemum and then to Leucanthemum but we are staying with Nipponanthemum, to avoid confusion!

    ‘Siskiyou’ Evening Primrose has excellent tolerance of dry gravelly sites, and its vigorous spreading habit makes it a good groundcover for tough sunny sites. The finely dissected green foliage is crowned in summer by soft pink saucer shaped flowers which open in the evening. Since Oenothera berlanderi ‘Siskiyou’ blooms during the night, it is attractive to moths as well as butterflies. A good choice for rock gardens and road sides, but it can be an aggressive groundcover.

    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'.
