About this EZ Scape™


    Seasonal Progression

    This colorful perennial combo will keep your garden in bloom almost all season long. ‘Cat’s Pajamas’ is a compact Catmint with clusters of purple-blue flowers. After peak bloom in late spring, rebloom will keep color on this plant for the rest of the season. Next to break into color are RAINBOW RHYTHM® Daylilies and LUMINARY® Tall Garden Phlox. These perennials will carry the garden through summer with brightly colored blooms or large flower panicles. SUMMERIFIC® Hardy Hibiscus will anchor the garden with head-turning dinnerplate size blooms in late summer.
