1. ‘Design-a-Line’ Cordyline
Unique cascading grass-like habit is ideal for containers on patios, along walls or walkways, or as accent plants in mixed borders. This low maintenance plant provides rich, burgundy color all year and works great with succulents.
2. Illumination® ‘Apricot’ Digiplexis®
WOW! Every now and then a new plant comes along that really knocks our socks off, and this one is perfect for our Western climates. Foxglove was crossed with a shrubby Isoplexis, which resulted in a perennial re-blooming apricot-orange garden wonder.
3. Blush Pink™ Nandina
This sport of 'Firepower' has unique blush-colored young foliage from spring until fall, then turns to deep red over winter. Blush Pink makes the perfect short hedge or color accent to evergreen shrubs. Its dense low growth habit is perfect for any garden or mixed container.
4. Evercolor® ‘Everillo’ Carex
Everillo wins our best plant for brightening up shady spots, or for adding a pop of color to a mixed container. This easy care evergreen grass can be used as a groundcover, to edge a path or patio, or tucked into a living wall or window box.
5. ‘Soft Caress’ Mahonia
Soft Caress has everything we love about Mahonia, without the pesky thorns! Compact enough to use in containers, yet large enough for foundation plantings or borders, they provide fabulous texture to the shade garden.
