Echinacea ‘Cheyenne Spirit’ by Kieft Seed

For the first time, this incredibly vibrant echinacea color range is available as a segregating mix from seed. ‘Cheyenne Spirit’ produces higher in-store impact, thanks to fuller pots and a mix of flower colors in red, orange, purple, scarlet, cream, yellow and white.

‘Sunrise Falls’ features yellow, maple-leaf-shaped leaves that have showy red veining atop plants with a cascading habit. Featuring white flower spikes, ‘Sunrise Falls’ grows to 13 inches tall. This cultivar is hardy to Zones 4 to 9 and ideal for AHS Heat Zones 9 to 4.

Hypericum ‘Hypearl Compact Yellow’ by Green Leaf Plants

This variety is hardy to Zones 6 to 9 and ideal for AHS heat Zones 9-6.

Kale ‘Nagoya White’ by Sakata Seeds

‘Nagoya White’ produces colorful, highly fringed leaves and is a long-lasting, cool-season bedding plant that also adds interest to fall containers and color bowls.

Mustard ‘Deep Purple’ by Sakata Seeds
