AlternantheraPurple PrinceAThe star attraction of this Latin American tropical stunner is the ravishing, splashy, colorful foliage. ‘Purple Prince’ rolls out a magic carpet of burgundy-purple leaves complemented by ruby rose undersides. Mounding, spreading, non-flowering 10-16 inch groundcover is full-on purple from the get-go, with hues intensifying in the sun.

Balloon FlowerFlorists BluePThis 2½–3½' cultivar bears long-lasting deep blue rounded star-shaped flowers from June to August. Called Balloon Flower because the buds look like inflated balloons ready to burst. Slow to emerge in spring; needs some support once it does. Plant in sun to light shade, 12–18" apart.

Bee BalmPanorama RedPBushy clumping 30" Panorama bears 1–2 whorls of red tubular flowers on each stem from mid to late summer.

Attractive to butterflies, hummingbirds and, of course, bees, Monarda can grow in either sun or shade. In shade its bloom time is lengthened but it can be blighted by powdery mildew (which lessens its attractiveness but not its longevity). 6 inch pot
