Image of Parthenocissus quinquefolia

Russell Stafford

(Star Showers® Virginia Creeper, Virginia Creeper)

This North American native can be quite vigorous and will cover a stone wall or fence in no time.

Virginia creeper is a tough woody vine that clings to surfaces via spidery tendrils tipped with flattened adhesive pads called holdfasts. In the wild, it is found across much of eastern North America from Maine to Florida eastward into Texas where it exists in forests and rambles up trees. It is deciduous and has deep green palm-shaped compound leaves with five leaflets (quinquefolia means "five-leaved")....

The vigorous and fast-growing Boston ivy, ‘Robusta’, has lustrous green, three-lobed leaves and excellent red fall color. This vigorous deciduous vine cloaks the walls of old university buildings across the north.

Boston ivy is a close relative of grapes and originates from China, Korea and Japan. It is a vigorous self-clinging woody vine that attaches itself to surfaces by tendrils tipped with small disk-like adhesive pads called holdfasts. It bears beautiful three-lobed leaves that are lime...

(Dark Towers Beardtongue, Hybrid Beardtongue)

This stunning purple foliage variety is rewriting the book on what to expect from perennials in the garden. It is a cultivar developed by Terra Nova Nurseries in Oregon where some of the most innovatively colored new cultivars are being produced. Penstemon foliage has previously been of minimal interest, but with the dark purple leaf form it makes these plants far more valuable before and after blooms.

Bright pink midsummer flowers are abundant but not particularly large. This is of little...

(Hybrid Beardtongue, Hybrid Penstemon, Pink Chablis Penstemon)

Bright pink blossoms held in greater abundance plus amore tidy compact form gives this moisture resistant penstemon a new place in perennial gardens. Bred in Oregon, it is derived from the Saskatoon hybrids which resulted from crosses of Penstemon barbatus and a handful of other species which contribute both drought and moisture tolerance. This variety is particularly useful in the Northwest where excessive winter rains cause many penstemons to suffer root rot. Its shorter stature and more...

(Hybrid Beardtongue, Prairie Dusk Hybrid Beardtongue)

A product of the penstemon breeding program of the University of Nebraska, this compact and distinctly sophisticated rose-violet-flowered perennial is a hybrid of ‘Flathead Lake,’ which figures in the ancestry of many of the finest western garden penstemons. A dalliance with the Rocky Mountain native Penstemon strictus produced this truly superior cultivar, whose spires of sharkshead-shaped flowers appear from late spring into summer. The knee-high flower stems arise from an evergreen basal...

(Hybrid Beardtongue, Hybrid Penstemon, Sweet Grapes Penstemon)

This is a gorgeous purple problem solver for gardens suffering from too much winter moisture for other perennial penstemon varieties. Bred in Oregon, it is derived from the Canadian Saskatoon hybrids, which resulted from crosses of Penstemon barbatus and a handful of other species which contribute drought and moisture tolerance. This cold hardy variety is particularly useful in the Northwest where excessive winter rains cause many penstemons to suffer root rot. Its shorter stature and more...

(Mat Beardtongue)

This small tufted evergreen perennial is a truly charming western rock garden plant. Like creeping thyme, it is a spreading plant but prettier in bloom and more drought resistant. A native of the mountainous west, it resides among the sagebrush plant communities of northern Colorado, southwestern Wyoming and northeastern Utah.

Plants are mat-like and have dense tiny leaves, much like that of a thyme. In drier conditions the leaves take on a gray fuzzy look. The lovely rich blue tubular flowers...

(Talus Slope Penstemon)

A favorite of hummingbirds, this herbaceous perennial from central and eastern North America bears tall, raceme-like spikes of tubular white flowers in late spring and early summer, above large clumps of oval leaves. The blooms are sometimes tinged with purple.

This plant likes sun and well-drained soil, and tolerates heat and humidity. Use it as a cut flower, in the perennial border, or in a wildflower planting.
