A DWARF CONIFER
Enjoy up to five months of blooms with this excellent selection of azaleas called Bloom-a-Thon! Large flowers appear in April, then rebloom in summer and fall until hard frost. Even high summer temperatures don't stop these beauties from producing loads of flowers. The evergreen foliage is disease resistant, and maintains excellent color year-round. The plants are great in containers, borders or in woodland gardens.
“Wow!” is all we can say about these new petunias. Bi-colors are hot this year and we have some beauties. Raspberry Blast, hot pink with white star-like stripes is a Supertunia, a variety that has performed well for us in the heat. We love the contrast of dark purple (almost black) against yellow in Phantom petunias. We still have the ever-popular Tidal Wave, Laura Bush, Bordeaux and old fashioned petunias.
Taxus cuspidata ‘Emerald Spreader’ is an attractive evergreen shrub perfect as a low-maintenance ground cover or low hedge. New growth in spring is bright green then the plants turns a lush deep green for the remainder of the year. This Yew requires well drained sites and must be kept well watered during the summer months.
Add color to fences, arbors and trellises with evergreen vines. Enjoy permanent foliage all year and flowers while the vines are blooming in season. Hide ugly blank walls or create a privacy screen with flowering vines. Once they start scrambling up their support, vines require very little maintenance. Evergreens include Carolina Jessamine, Tangerine Cross Vine, Star Jasmine (if sheltered from the wind) and Passion Vine.
