NEW PLANTS FOR 2005

** ROSE---"DOUBLE KNOCK OUT"

The next generation of the award winning "Knock Out" rose delivers a 1-2 punch with double blooms and improved performance. DKO is more floriferous than "Knock Out" and raises the bar with petal counts of 18-25 or twice the number of "Knock Out". Additonal petals present a fuller, richer cherry red inflorescence that is simply breathtaking. Blooms maintain a continous show of color from May to hard frost with beautiful foliage almost year round. DKO offers enhancements on "Knock Out's" easy to care for qualities of disease/pest resistance, drought/humidity tolearance and self cleaning. DKO is even more winter hardy and shade tolerant than its predecessor.

Available in limited quanities in late May.

MANGO MEADOWBRITE CONEFLOWER

Drought tolerant, brightly colored and vigorous grower, are just a few of the words that describe this plant. "Mango Meadowbrite" will soon be your summer blooming favorite. Orange-yellow blooms begin mid-June and linger on into September. This fragrant beauty is ideal for a cutting garden or as a sunny perennial bed. The foliage is deep green. Plant prefers well-drained and grows to 2 1/2 to 3 feet.

Available in April at Greenscape Gardens.

COMING IN APRIL

The month of April salutes landscape architecture.

American Society of Landscape Architects declared April as National Landscape Architecture Month. The theme will be Design for Active Living, highlighting ways community design affects residents' daily activity levels and, in turn, their overall health. April was selected as National Landscape Architecture Month because it encompasses Earth Day (April 22) and the birthday of Frederick Law Olmsted (April 26), founder of the American landscape architecture profession.
