The Best Space-Saver Yet! Nearly spineless fruit harvest easily and taste delicious! 43 days. Love Zucchini but just don’t have the space for those big, sprawling plants? Raven Hybrid is the answer — a truly compact variety that improves every stage of the process, from saving space in the garden to simplifying harvest with spineless fruit to delighting your taste buds with fruit much meatier and more flavorful than older varieties!These deep green fruits reach 7 or 8 inches long and about 2 inches in diameter, and arise very abundantly all over plants just 2 feet high and 3 feet wide. And you can harvest them with the gloves off — the fruit is nearly spineless and the plant is open-habit! That’s good, because you’re going to be picking them longer than other varieties — Raven outlasts all others at season’s end by several weeks!But the real treat comes when you take your first bite of Raven Hybrid. The flavor is rich, substantial (the only way I can describe it is “meaty”), and filling, with much more of
A Trailing Grandiflora — the Best of Both Worlds! The Best for Baskets AND Bedding! The future is here, and its name is Park’s Whopper Petunia! The only one of its kind in the world, this trailing grandiflora combines the best merits of the spreading Petunias with those of the bedding types. It is destined to be THE petunia of choice for gardeners everywhere, so pick your colors and start filling up your Bio Domes! Very large 3- to 3 1/2-inch bright red blooms erupt all over this plant, beginning in late spring and continuing right through summer and into fall. Unlike spreading Petunias, though, which set new blooms at the end of their stems (and can look rather bare and flat in the center as the long season goes on), the Whopper sets new buds all along the stems, so it always looks newly-blooming and full. But unlike upright Petunias, it has long, trailing stems, so you can let it dangle from hanging baskets, windowboxes, and flowerpots with merry abandon. Of course, it also looks terrific scrambling around
Long-Blooming Beauty in 3 Colors! Deadhead these flowers and they will rebloom all summer long! This award-winning Bellflower is such an improvement over earlier varieties that it may become the only one you grow! Needing no chill period to flower, it opens its first blooms weeks earlier than others, and as long as they are deadheaded promptly, repeats the show all summer long! The 1/2- to 2-inch flowers begin cup-shaped and then open so wide that they sometimes turn themselves inside-out! This mix contains all 3 Pearl colors: rich Deep Blue, iridescent Light Blue, and pure White.Not only are these blooms earlier and far more abundant than others, they are also larger, and arise on more compact plants. Just 6 to 8 inches high and wide, this little plant thrives in sun to part shade, especially in cool-summer climates. Ideal for containers, it is also available in solid Deep Blue. Winner of the 2000 Flora Star Award. Zones 3-8.

Another AAS Award for this Incredible Series! You won’t believe the bigger blooms, longer season, and greater vigor of this plant! We’ve all wished that Pansies were only as hardy as Violas, and that Violas were only as showy as Pansies . . . so imagine the excitement that greeted Skippy when it was trialed last season! Hands-down winner of the prestigious All-America Selection (the highest honor given to a seed variety in this country), this Viola cornuta looks like a Viola but has all the showy blooms, heat tolerance, and winter hardiness of a Viola! And did I mention that it REBLOOMS?One look at these flowers and you’d dismiss Skippy as a Pansy. They’re fully 1 1/2 inches across (huge by Viola standards!), with base petals of bright yellow tinged with plum at the edges, and smaller top petals of rich plummy prurple. Charmingly whiskered in brown or black, these blooms arise ALL OVER this small plant, first in spring and then (if cut back after flowering) again in fall. It’s a rare Viola that can survive bo

Not only are these flowers BIGGER, but they’re streaked with white for a showy look, they arise 4 per stem, make great cuts, and have a heavenly fragrance! I think we should call them Sweetest Pea — and we should certainly get every spare inch of ground ready to receive them this spring!Streamer is just magnificent, each flower about 2 inches across (that’s gigantic by Sweet Pea standards), colored a rich purple and boldly streaked with white. They arise about 4 on every stem, so even a small cutting gives you a big, sweet-scented bouquet!This is a trailing Sweet Pea (since Sweet Pea is one of those plants that obliges you with bush varieties as well as vining types!) reaching 5 to 6 feet high. If you’ve got a trellis, chain-link fence, porous wall, or absolutely anything else that will ho

Big Colorful Leaves with an Unexpected Surprise! Super easy to germinate and even easier to grow! (Syn. Rhoeo discolor.) Until you look closely at this charming houseplant, you might wonder why on earth it’s called Moses-in-the-Cradle. Its large, elegant, strap-shaped leaves are glossy-green on the top, rich purple below, and they arise in a tight clump. But when the tiny white flowers begin to dot this plant near the base, you’ll notice that each one is carried in a neat little boat-shaped bract, as if negotiating the bulrushes!Just a foot or so high and wide, Moses-in-the-Cradle spills out of small containers beautifully, making a nice two-color splash in any setting. It’s happy under the fluorescent lighting of offices as well as the natural sun of bright windows, and needs very little care to keep looking its best.
