Anne Fall is the largest, best-tasting, highest-quality yellow raspberry. The light yellow fruits have extra-sweet flavor and do not crumble. It ripens from late August through October and can also be grown as a summer bearer in Zones 4 and 5.
At Last is a fragrant rose easy enough for any gardener to grow. Soft orange blooms from late spring through the frost. These disease-resistant roses require no special pruning or spraying.
Butterscotch is a small-fruited, 1 to 2lb., butternut squash with an exceptionally sweet taste. Its compact vines are space-saving for smaller gardens or for those who just want to fit more plants into the space they have. The fruits can be stored for up to 3 months. Butterscotch is great for containers and Powdery Mildew resistant.
Cafe Au Lait grows beautiful large 9-inch blooms colored in a frothy blend of cream and peach. Best grown in full sunlight.
Callie’s Memory has full and fluffy, fragrant blooms that begin pale apricot with pinkish edges and age to a lovely cream-yellow with occasional maroon flares. A maroon eye surrounds a center of golden yellow stamens. These bushy plants have long stems and display lush green leaves all through the growing season. An Intersectional type that blooms in late spring.
Flavorette Honey-Apricot, the name makes it sound good enough to eat, and you can! The 2 1/2-3″ blooms are a lovely blend of apricot and yellow with a pink reverse. They have a fruity-tasting flavor that can be used in sweets, salads, and drinks. It is a highly disease-resistant plant that requires no deadheading to bloom continuously all season.
Ocaso has a unique blend of brown and red. These gladioli will delight you with their unusual colors, excellent form, large blooms, and overall dependability. The bulbs produce the largest flowers and spikes, perfect for summer cut flower bouquets.
One Too Many is a pumpkin that looks like a bloodshot eyeball. There’s a character in every crowd, and it’s no different in the pumpkin patch. These 20-pound round to oblong fruits have a white background accented with midribs and stippled veins of red. The productive vines have good Powdery Mildew tolerance plus some virus tolerance.
Add a mix of warm colors to light up your containers with On Top Sunset Shades. These spectacular begonias were bred for flowering in containers. Their mounding habit and elaborate, multiple branching make them look great from any angle, plus they’re highly floriferous. It includes shades of orange, cream, and yellow with contrasting picotee borders.
Small in size, big in taste! The deep orange, high-quality flesh of these 2-pound, 4″, personal-size melons has amazing flavor with a 14% Brix sweetness rating. The fruits keep well when refrigerated. The productive plants have an incomparable disease package that includes resistance to Powdery Mildew, Fusarium, Mosaic, and Papaya Ringspot viruses.
The Turks Turban is an edible ornamental squash. The orange-red fruits are 8 to 10 inches across, with a prominent “button” that has stripes of orange, red, white, and green. The dense, firm flesh has a mild sweet, nutty flavor. It is great for making stuffed squash or can also be dried and used like a gourd for crafts.
Winter Luxury Pie, an heirloom variety, makes the most velvety pumpkin pie you’ll ever eat! Nearly 100 years later, we still rate this pumpkin among the best. It is enormously productive, medium in size about ten inches in diameter, almost globe-shaped, and ripens early. The skin is finely netted and the color is a beautiful golden russet which is a sign of fine quality. The flesh is very thick, sweet, sugary, and deep golden. It is an excellent keeper for winter use.
Pantone Color Institute Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman says “In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and modern elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.”
