5 New Blooms for Your Summer Garden

Spring is coming and so is summer bulb and perennial planting season. It’s time to think about dahlias, peonies, anemones and gladiolus. With so many different varieties, colours, shapes and sizes, you can build a garden suited to your unique taste. Check out the amazing new varieties.

Interested in trying some new dahlias? New this season is ‘Fairway Spur’ and ‘Star’s Favorite’. Both grow to an impressive 100 cm (40”) tall! ‘Fairway Spur’s stunning coral-peach blooms grow to an extraordinary 10” in size. Dahlia ‘Star’s Favorite’ is a fun and playful pink and cream incurve cactus dahlia.

Peonies are a favorite for many gardeners. With their full blooms and enticing aromas, they are a great addition to the garden. This year we have the ‘Peace and Patience’ Colourful Companion. ‘Peace and Patience’ is a combination of a medium pink peony with a crisp white one. This new combination is very fragrant, and deer resistant. It’s also an ideal bloom to cut and bring indoors to enjoy.

Have you ever seen such amazing anemones as the Rainbow ‘Blueberry’ variety? Its crisp white petals perfectly offset the blooms’ deep blue centres. Growing to a height of 40 cm (16”) these anemones would be perfect in to enjoy in containers on your patio or in cut flower bouquets.

Dutch novelty gladiolus produce blooms in amazing colour combinations. Our new Gladiolus ‘Lumiere’ is a remarkable mix of hot pink and purple. Growing to a height of 100 cm (40”), these blooms will be an outstanding addition to the colour combination of your late summer garden.

    Your dahlias featured seem to be mixed up. When I click on star favorite, fairway comes up. I would like to order the pink one only.

    I enjoy planting patio asiatc lilies bulbs like (‘Tiny Bee’ or ‘Tiny Padhye) or gallery dahlias like(‘La Tour’ or ‘Pinto’) with my anemones in containers. Then I tuck in a few annuals like petunias and calibrachoa for some instant colour.

    Do Anemone Bordeaux need to be soaked before they are planted, What zone are they? It doesn`t say on your package.
