When it comes to curb appeal, you can impress butterflies, hummingbirds, and some humans – including those garden-variety homebuyers – with these plants from Wallitsch Garden Center.
With dazzling features, you’ll catch their eyes and draw them closer. Each variety is suitable for Kentucky’s USDA Hardiness Zone. Plus, a world filled with butterflies and cool birds is a marvelous thing.

Emerald Blue Creeping Phlox – Provides exceptional groundcover with deep blue color and good for Kentucky’s hot summers. Ideal for urban, cutting and rock gardens plus boarders.
Fiesta Time Hollyhock – Suitable for courtyards, smaller gardens and mixed containers. Features double flowers in deep, vivid pink. Ideal for mid-border vertical effects.
Red Carline Delphinium – Offers color variety with double crimson flowers on stems that rise impressively from mounding foliage. Quickly reaches four to six feet. Good for borders, containers, cutting and woodland gardens.
