About this EZ Scape™


    Seasonal Progression

    Use this mix of sun-loving, long blooming perennials to keep the pollinators visiting your garden happy all summer long. 'Cat’s Pajamas’ Catmint will lead the way in spring with a brilliant display of lavender-blue flowers. This plant will rebloom throughout the summer. The Profusion Salvia will begin blooming early for a brilliant display in spring and early summer. Trimming back the Salvia after bloom will provide second and third flushes of flowers. Opening Act Phlox will burst into bloom under the heat of the summer and continue for many weeks, with good rebloom showing color all the way to frost.
