About this EZ Scape™


    Seasonal Progression

    If you do not have regular irrigation, the right plant mix can make all the difference! DOLCE® Heuchera and COLOR SPIRES® Salvia will lead the way in spring with early color. Midnight Masquerade will add size quickly with tall lavender bloom stalks, reaching its peak in midsummer. Dark foliage and seedheads will carry interest after flowers fade. ROCK ‘N ROUND™ Sedum will contribute succulent foliage all season with a brilliant floral display in late summer and colorufl seedheads adding fall interest. Note that most perennials need extra water while getting established and during unusually hot weather.
