Achillea or Yarrow, A Perennial Geranium And Coreopsis
Pamela Crawford is on the set of GardenSMART TV, helping with a garden makeover and wants to something she thinks important. When you go to the garden center in the spring you'll see some new plants she has not yet tried, all are from Blooms of Bressingham.
One is an Achillea or Yarrow one of her favorite perennials because it will provide a very long bloom period, yet require very little care. It's called Pomegranate, she is looking forward to trying it in her own yard. Achillea 'Pomegranate'
The next is a perennial geranium called Blushing Turtle. It will get the majority of its blooms in June, then re-bloom a little in September. Geranium 'Blushing Turtle'
The next is a coreopsis and peach colored. What interests Pamela about this plant is that its a trial plant. You can record your comments about this plant and see how it does. Coreopsis 'Limerock Dream'
