This week's varieties: Regal, heavenly and sunny

Check out Terra Nova’s beautiful helleborus ‘Regal Ruffles’ mix. Shade and deer resistant, it is best in Zones 5 to 8. It finishes in 6-inch pots in eight to 10 weeks.

Intrinsic Perennial Gardens has announced the release of its polemonium ‘Heaven Scent.’ It features pretty blue fragrant flowers in April and May and a 18-24-inch tall plant. Full sun to part shade, well-drained soil, Zone 5.

From EuroAmerican Propagators, osteospermum ‘Sunny Sheila' features bright orange petals that fade to a deep red at the center. It flowers best in the cool dark night. Verbena ‘Babylon Purple' is the earliest winter bloomer in the series. A solid mound of purple flowers surrounds its lush foliage.
