A revolutionary new kind of lilac, Bloomerang blooms in spring and then again throughout the summer. It does go through a rest period in the heat of the summer, then flowers. While traditional lilac varieties bloom for a few short weeks in spring, Bloomerang's fragrant flowers continue until frost. This compact, mounded variety fits easily into any landscape, and is ideal as a foundation planting or as part of the mixed border. You can even include it into perennial beds.

Pulsatilla vulgaris (pasque flower) One of the first flowers to be blooming in my Zone 3 garden. The soft down on its leaves begs to be touched. The seed heads are just as interesting plus the foliage looks good all year. I cut them back in early spring as soon as I see new growth. It grows in full sun in a gravel garden with no extra watering. Does self-seed, so the seed heads may be removed when the seeds begin to drop. Still, it is a plant that I don't mind making itself at home.
