Abstract: A new and distinct Achillea plant is provided that originated as a chance seedling from the open pollination of the ‘Moonshine’ variety (non-patented in the United States). Attractive fine silvery-green mature foliage is formed. The plant is early-flowering with the formation of soft light-yellow inflorescences that contrast nicely with the foliage coloration. The plant can be readily distinguished from the bright yellow inflorescences of the ‘Moonshine’ variety as well as other Achillea plants. A considerably more compact and shorter growth habit than the ‘Moonshine’ variety also is displayed. The plant is well suited for providing ornamentation in parks and gardens.
Abstract: A new and distinct Caryopteris plant is provided which is the product of a controlled breeding program followed by selection. Large vibrant violet-blue flowers in a verticillaster arrangement are formed on a substantially uniform basis. The growth habit is rounded ascending with strong branching. Attractive large glossy dark green foliage is formed. The plant is well suited for providing attractive colorful ornamentation in the landscape.
Abstract: A new and distinct shrub rose plant is provided that abundantly and substantially continuously forms in clusters attractive double cup-shaped blossoms that initially are yellow and change to cream-white with maturity. The plant exhibits vigorous vegetation and a bushy and rounded growth habit. The foliage is dark green with a glossy upper surface. The blossoms commonly display a very light sweet scent. Good disease resistance is displayed, particularly with respect to Black Spot, Powdery Mildew, and Rust, during observations to date. The plant is well suited for growing as attractive ornamentation in the landscape. It grows well as a ground cover, in mass plantings, and when present in a container.
