The Trophytaker® collection offers twice the length of bloom time than regular daylilies, larger blooms in an array of colors and attractive foliage through fall. These are also more disease and insect resistant than most daylilies. In essence, this collection is so good that in a contest, these would take the “trophies!”

Another exclusive daylily collection is the Happy Ever Appster® series. This selection contains multiple repeat bloomers. These varieties will bloom, rest, bloom again, rest, bloom and so on. You will be amazed at the length of their season!

2. Sun Parasol™ Crimson Mandevilla
This new series of mandevilla features glossy, dark-green foliage accenting dark red flowers. The rich, velvety-textured blooms hold their color well and will not fade.

Callie’s Tidbit: Heirloom Bulbs Saved!
On April 3, Dallas/Fort Worth-area gardeners banded together to rescue rare flower bulbs from a future construction site. Thousands of Campernelle bulbs (Narcissus x odorus) have thrived in this empty lot in Fort Worth for more than 50 years, emerging once a year to reveal their rare beauty. These bulbs were relocated to the Crow Lake area along Trinity River in Dallas. They will become part of the newest landscape addition of the Trinity River Project. Calloway’s Nursery is proud to be part of this endeavor in preserving Texas’ heirloom flower bulbs.

Remember Calloway’s Nursery for any gardening questions. We have Texas Certified Nursery Professionals in every store to assist you in any way. Visit us today!
