New flower varieties for Spring 2013

- by Debra Anchors

The gardens are just getting ready for their winter’s sleep and already I am dreaming of additions I will make in next spring.  There are some stunning new varieties of plants available to gardeners in spring, 2013; these are only a few of my favorites. What do you think of these new introductions from Proven Winners and Hort Couture?

  1. The new garden varieties are unique and gorgeous. I love the contrast in the blue-white stripey primula and the red timming on the dianthus. An interesting blog that you have here.

    1. Hello, Rob!

      I agree completely - a petite bee balm in that shade? It's a must-have.
