Coneflowers, also known as Echinacea, are tough little native flowers that draw butterflies, bees, and birds to the garden. Trouble-free coneflowers are drought-tolerant once established. They can take the heat! As native plants with prickly stems, they are more deer-resistant than most flowering plants, too.

For many gardeners, spring is a mad rush of cleaning up the garden, purchasing “dream” plants, dividing, planting, mulching, and fertilizing. By the time June rolls around, gardeners can take a more leisurely approach, studying areas in the garden that need improvement and making plans to fill in gaps.

“June is the perfect time to purchase and plant perennials. In June, the garden center will feature larger, more mature flowering plants than those available in the spring.”

Perennials are often considered the heart of the garden due to how rewarding they are, year after year, as well as the fact that they offer an enormous variety of colors, sizes, habits, fragrances, and bloomtimes. They provide interest throughout any season of the year, for many, including winter. Most perennials have a deep, extensive root system, allowing them to tolerate dry spells and guard against erosion.

An amazing variety with its profusion of white flowers in spring, and charming heart shaped leaves that are marked with a thick black band on the veins; wonderful as a shaded groundcover, or weaving with other plants in a container. Running Tapestry Foamflower has masses of beautiful racemes of lightly-scented white bell-shaped flowers rising above the foliage from mid spring to mid summer, which are most effective when planted in groupings. Its attractive heart-shaped leaves remain dark green in color with distinctive black veins throughout the year.Not only are our plants of the highest quality, but you’ll also find rare and unique varieties here that are very difficult to find elsewhere. We’ve chosen many of them because they’ve shown superior disease or pest resistance and excellent performance in drought, heat, cold, or other stresses. Some have been selected because of exciting new bloom colors and forms or new sizes and habits that make them perfect for any garden.

At Goffle Brook Farms we encourage and offer many native plant species of New Jersey and Bergen County. Native plants not only add beauty to New Jersey yards, they offer important environmental and economic benefits. Native plants help conserve and filter water, provide habitat for native wildlife, protect soil resources, and reduce the costs and environmental impacts associated with fertilizers and pesticides.

Some of our latest selections of perennials that we have recently added to our inventory are shown below. You can find these along with many other varieties of perennials in the garden center today…

Big Bang Mercury Rising

A color breakthrough - a hardy, red-flowering coreopsis with deep velvety red flowers with frilly bright gold centers above fresh green, finely textured foliage. Petals are streaked with frosty white in late fall. A well-branched selection with excellent disease resistance. Spreads gently in the garden. An herbaceous perennial.

Delphinium Blue Bird

Delphiniums are the stars of the early summer border. Plants form a low mound of deeply-cut green leaves, bearing tall spikes of satiny flowers. This selection has clear medium-blue petals, with a white centre, or “bee”.

Arizona Red Shades

Arizona Red Shades produces masses of large, crimson red blossoms from early summer all the way into early fall, even under hot and dry conditions. These perennials require little care once established. They are heat tolerant and actually prefer to be grown in poorer soils. They get their name from the manner in which they used to blanket North American prairies with their blooms.

Southern Comfort

With huge cinnamon-peach leaves and a lush habit, this plant makes a bold foliage statement like a Hosta (but evergreen). Creamy white flowers erupt in late summer. Foliage color changes from cinnamon peach to burnished copper to amber.

Liatris Floristan Violet

Multiple wands of bright violet-purple flowers open from top to bottom beginning in early summer. Narrow, opposite leaves are up to 10" long at the base of the plant and decrease in length up the stems. All together, Liatris is a very strong vertical accent for the garden. It is a staple item for cutting gardens; it adds a bright, vertical element to bouquets.

Bee You-Bee True

Deep maroon buds that cover the lush, minty-basil-scented, dark green foliage open to show-stopping, electric violet-purple blooms. This carefree, naturally rounded plant with a uniform habit is truly mildew free. Plant en masse for an inviting display of color in sunny borders and containers. An herbaceous perennial.

Nepeta Blue Wonder

Nepeta 'Blue Wonder' is a variety of Catmint. The foliage is grey-green, 1"-2" long, scalloped and fragrant. Nepeta 'Blue Wonder' is covered in sprays of 6" tall, dark blue-purple flower spikes beginning late Spring and into the Fall

Coneflower Henry Eilers

The unique, finely quilled, 2-inch-wide flowers are what make 'Henry Eilers' stand out from the rest of the coneflowers. The petals sit separate from one another, forming a brilliant, golden yellow starburst around a dark brownish purple cone. The blooms grow on strong, upright, 4- to 5-foot-tall stems in late summer, and are produced in such abundance that you can cut some for bouquets and you'll never even notice they are missing from the garden. The stems are covered with a soft, hairy down, while the leaves have a pleasing vanilla-and-anise scent.
