A glowing cascade of golden-green foliage perfect for creating contrast with darker foliage plants or brightly colored annuals. Creeping habit is beautiful spilling over the side of mixed container plantings. Yellow flowers lend an added touch of sparkle all through the season.

A fun tropical plant native to South Africa. Lush spikes of small flowers are tipped by a tuft of foliage creating the overall look of a pineapple. A long-lasting and fragrant selection for cut arrangements.

Weeping Siberian Peashrub 'Pendula' (Caragana arborescens)

The graceful “weeping” habit of this shrub disguises its rugged nature. This is a great selection for infertile or dry locations. Cheerful yellow, pea-like flowers followed by attractive seedpods create multi-season interest.

Blue Hibiscus (Alyogyne huegelii)

A gorgeous solution for challenging, dry locations. Blue hibiscus produces showy light blue flowers and attractive crinkled green foliage. It’s a fast-grower and blooms prolifically over a long period of time. Hardy and very easy to grow!
