Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Geranium 'Bevan's Variety' for it's deer tolerant and stalwart habit, which sports richly colored, long blooming summer flowers. Named for the thick fleshy rhizomes by which it spreads, ‘Bevan’s Variety’ is one of the best ground cover plants for shady areas. Flourishing year after year in our older border with early flowering Brunnera and Euphorbia ‘Great Dixter’. Bearing clusters of intensely colored dark magenta flowers and decorative deep red sepals above soft green aromatic foliage.

“Very nice web site.  I am especially pleased to see your large selection of perennial herbs with the extensive narratives.  We are building up a garden...after Katrina destroyed our old home.”
