Asclepias tuberosa -- Perennial Plant of 2017 -- and much more!


Asclepias tuberosa -- Perennial Plant of 2017
And many other new picks at Arrowhead!


We've just added a bunch of new plants to the online catalog, including Asclepias tuberosa, voted 'perennial plant of 2017' by the Perennial Plant Association.

You can check out our complete listing over on our shopping cart. There's guaranteed to be something new and interesting you don't have yet! Here's a little picture-tour of some of what's new for this fall:

Asclepias tuberosa will get quite large in the garden

Voted perennial plant of 2017 by the PPA


I expect a flood of new coverage on this perennial in gardening and horticulture magazines this year. Place an order soon if you want to ensure you can get one!

A. tuberosa closeup

A. tuberosa is a must have if your tastes run to the bright colors. Tops out at about 18 inches, with masses of warm-colored flowers in late Summer from orange, orange-red to buttery yellow. As we said, one of the favorite food plants of the Monarch butterfly -- if you grow it, the butterflies will come. Like any milkweed, A. tuberosa is not particularly hard to grow. We recommend good drainage and full sun, but a little bit of shade won't kill it either.

A. tuberosa's range of colouring

Asperula sintensii (click to view on our store)



Asperula sintensii

Wonderfully compact rock-garden plant with soft pink flowers. Don't think you can go wrong with this one.

Dracocephalum austriacum: (click to view on our store)



Dracocephalum austriacum in our trial beds

Dracocephalum austriacum is a very rare species growing in rocky habitats. Foot high with scapes whorled in blue violet dragonheads. The general area of distribution includes alpine ranges from central to south-eastern Europe, down to Turkey and Greece where it is considered an endangered species.

Dracocephalum ruyschianum: (click to view on our store)


Also known as Nordic Dragonhead, grows between 16" to 24" tall, and forms neat bushlets of attractive foliage. Strikingly blue flowers and very tidy, easy to take care of. Hardy up to zone 5. Can't go wrong with this one.

Lindera benzoin: (click to view on our store)



Lindera benzoin

Just like the Asclepias, we have another wonderful butterfly plant here in L. benzoin. Commonly called Spicebush, this is the main food plant of the Spicebush Swallowtail Butterfly (some pictures are here on the blog). The promethea silkmoth will also flock (literally) to L. benzoin. Wonderfully fragrant yellow flowers that open early in spring to welcome the butterflies, before even having fully leafed out, and in autumn the Spicebush produces eye catching scarlet berries. Easily growable across zones 4 to 9.

The above caterpillars are those of the Spicebush Swallowtail Butterfly. These caterpillars absolutely love to eat Lindera benzoin, as if it wasn't a cool enough shrub already!

Origanum sipyleum: (click to view on our store)



Origanum sipyleum
Collected in the Sultan Dagh mountains (Turkey) at 2000m, with cushions of bluish aromatic leaves and sprays of semi-pendant greenish bracts that encase the pale, long-tubed flowers.

That's just the tip of the iceberg, more new additions this year include:

Click to visit the Arrowhead Alpines online store for all these listings and many more. The weather is beginning to cool and the fall nursery season will be upon us shortly!

Speaking of which, don't forget to check out our BULK woodland wildflowers this upcoming fall. We always have a huge selection of rare trilliums, and many other native wildflowers that are usually hard to buy in large quantities. If you need to cover a wide area with hundreds of wildflowers, we've got you covered. Click the link above for more!.

I am Alecia Maldonado used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Dr Mandaker); he just got he just got his website (holyaraminta.com), has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him as witchhealing@outlook.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,Barrenness(need a child),goodLuck voodoo,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
