Magenta Blooms and Brilliant Fall Color!

Very heat-tolerant.
Plant Patent Applied For

A stunning new Coral Bells from France! This gloriously colorful plant is "in season" from spring until frost, with dramatic color changes to match the changing seasons.

Quite heat-tolerant and adaptable to varying soil conditions, this Heuchera from French breeders Thierry and Sandrine Delabroye is a marvel of shifting hues. In spring, large leaves of chartreuse with maroon veining unfold. Soon they are topped by magenta flowers on slender brown stems. When summer arrives, the foliage turns green with reddish-black veins. And in autumn it transforms again, this time to brilliant shades of pink and yellow with traces of green remaining.

'Circus' reaches 12 to 18 inches high and 18 to 24 inches wide, a fine choice for containers as well as the partly shaded garden. Very easy to grow, it should be sited where its frequent color changes can be seen to best advantage. Absolutely enchanting! Zones 4-8.

Many of the herbs will repel insects. Pennyroyal repels fleas and other insects. Pyrethrum repels moths, flies, ants, mosquitoes, cockroaches, mites, and bedbugs. Mint repels flies, fleas, and ants. Lavender repels flies, silverfish, and fleas. Catnip can repel mosquitoes. Thyme repels insects. Lemon Grass repels mosquitoes. Basil repels flies and mosquitoes. Sage repels a variety of insects.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?

Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits. Deer repellent plants include: lavender, onion, catnip, sage, chives, garlic, spearmint, and thyme. Be sure to strategically place these repellent plants around and in between rabbit and deer-susceptible plants. Also, place some along the property line and especially at key points the rabbits and deer are using as entryways, which can even deter them from coming onto your property.
