We first picked up this fine dwarf poker in the UK, and it has since performed admirably in our climate, so we are delighted to share. The narrow, grass-like foliage gives rise to 2' tall, narrow spikes of coral-red flowers in July. Kniphofia 'Nancy's Red' is a charming plant and hummingbird attractor, scaled for even the smallest of gardens.
(aka: originally introduced as Dianthus 'Red Devil') This 2007 Plant Delights introduction was discovered here as a flower mutation on our patch of Dianthus 'Feuerhexe' (Firewitch). Our trials have shown it to be identical to the 2006 PPA Plant of the Year, Dianthus 'Feuerhexe', except in flower color, which is a lovely cherry red instead of the typical pink. The tight mats of powder blue foliage are topped in late April with 8" tall cherry red (RHS 66A) flowers that nearly obscure the foliage and perfume the garden with a spicy clove-like fragrance. As with the parent, we see sporadic rebloom through summer and into fall...a continual hummingbird delight.
Tanacetum 'Isla Gold' probably would not have made into the US market if it hadn't been for our friend Viki Ferreniea who shared this with us in 1999. I hadn't seen a plant this exciting in quite a while and, after introducing it in 2001, it's still popular over a decade later. The amazing dwarf Tanacetum 'Isla Gold' originated in the now-defunct Isla Nursery in Cambridgeshire, UK. When planted in an average-to-dry site, the brilliant, lacy, deer-resistant foliage emerges bright gold in early spring and remains so until frost. Golden tansy is an easy-to-grow herb that doesn't spread around like regular tansy and is gorgeous where golden foliage is needed in the perennial border. It truly proves to be a beacon all summer...superb!
