RENAISSANCE COLLECTION

Plants that Grow Successfully in Sullivan County

May 16, 2016

[LIBERTY] – Gardeners interested in finding the right plants to put in their gardens should look for the 2016 Renaissance Collection at area garden centers. 

Most of the 30 plants in the collection are deer resistant, low maintenance, have low water needs and meet the challenges of gardening in Sullivan County. “These are the perfect selections when choosing plants to start a new garden or as additions to established beds: said Diana Weiner, Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Coordinator. 

Flower additions to this year’s collection include Petunia ‘Vista and ‘Supertunia’, Dusty Miller, Annual Red Fountain Grass, and Dahlia ‘Figaro’ and ‘Harlequin Mix.  New perennials include garden Phlox, New England and New York Aster and Black-eyed Susan.  The new shrubs are Hydrangea ‘limelight’ and ‘Vanilla Strawberry.’
