If you haven’t started thinking about your Buffalo garden, now is the time to start. Dozens of catalogs have been arriving at the Buffalo Gardening Examiner’s home full of colorful annuals and perennials that would do beautifully in our Zone 5 climate. Here’s a look at some of the new items listed in the 2012 Dutch Gardens catalog that was recently sent out.
- Manhattan Lights and Masterpiece Lupines – Manhattan Lights is purple and yellow in color, while Masterpiece is purple and orange. These flowers grow upwards of two feet tall and are hardy in Zones 4 through 9.
- Coupe de Soleil Dahlia – one of the Buffalo Gardening Examiner’s favorite new introductions in the catalog, this peaches-n-cream dahlia is unique in its ever-changing color – from apricot to creamy white.
- Joker Peony – double-blooming peony produces flowers in late spring, in varying shades of pink as the flower ages.
- Miss Indigo Primrose – deep-violet double flowers with silvery-white picotee edges, the foliage on these plants is evergreen throughout the year.
