Bright red berries on purple stems embellish the dense, blue-green foliage from fall through winter on ‘Blue Princess’.

Dark glossy leaves, superior vigor and branching make it a superior choice. These are fresh trimmed and looking GREAT right now!
Miscanthus Gracillumus is a flashy selection with feathery copper-colored plumes covering the plant by mid-fall. Miscanthus Variegatus is a variegated sedge with creamy white longitudinal stripes on long, deep green foliage. A classic ornamental grass for the landscape!
Selected due to its good resistance to boxwood blight and boxwood leaf miner, New Gen ‘Freedom®’ is more uniform and tight, making it an excellent choice for formal and residential landscapes. Note: this is an upright variety; better to compare it to another upright like Green Mountain.
‘Munstead’ is a hardy, extremely fragrant lavender variety that blooms twice starting in late spring or early summer. This variety tolerates heat and poor soil conditions well. ‘SuperBlue’ is a hardy, compact and fragrant Lavender plant that tops out at about a foot in height, making it a perfect choice for edging walkways and setting into patio containers.
‘Big Time Blue’ features big time versatility – it can be enjoyed in containers, planted as a perennial border, or massed to form a colorful hedge. Shiny, luminescent green foliage provides a striking contrast to columnar purple blooms. ‘Bubblegum Candles’ boasts an abundance of psychedelic pink spikes. Its compact, bright green foliage and tidy form make this a great plant for edging a path or mass plantings.
Calycanthus ‘Aphrodite’ is covered in big, glossy leaves, and this shrub explodes with enormous, long-blooming cupped flowers (picture on right) that look a bit like a deep red magnolia.
Wine and Roses® is an award winning weigela featuring rosey-pink flowers that appear in late spring and often rebloom into summer. With rich dark purple foliage you will have season long color! Weigela Stunner® features vibrant pink blooms that pop against sleek dark purple foliage creating a showy, elegant look.
