Firepower Nandina

Firepower produces a very neat mound of colorful foliage with the potential of a 3’ height with up to a 3’ spread. Absolutely one of the best colored of our Nandina offerings, the brilliant fall and winter colors make this a perfect selection for borders, mass plantings and containers. This variety of Nandina isn’t known for its flowers or fruit, but its seasonal wide array of lime green to fiery red leaves is its crowning glory. After being established, Firepower can thrive on neglect in full sun to part shade in Zones 6b-10. They can withstand some drought conditions, but do best with consistent watering in rich soil. Shear during summer to keep a tidy appearance if preferred.

‘Dwarf Pringles’ Japanese Yew

Lower growing form of the Standard Japanese Yew, this shrub has dense, small, dark green, needle-like foliage, but without the sharp points. This plant grows well in Zones 8-11 in partial shade to full sun. For zones with colder temperature ranges, it can be grown in containers for moving indoors during winter. Also effective for mass planting on embankments, hillsides and slopes where its root system can assist with erosion control. Left natural, it can reach 3 to 5 ft. tall with a spread of up to 6 ft. wide. However, it responds well to pruning and shaping for size control. This is also a great plant to use in coastal areas because it tolerates mild salt spray. Considered as deer resistant and is not bothered by many insects.

Split Leaf Philodendron

Grown mostly for its foliage, the Split Leaf Philodendron is a tropical shrub with large, dark green, deeply lobed leaves. Considered as an evergreen, it thrives best outdoors in Zones 10-11, but can be grown anywhere in moveable containers to capture bright light, slightly humid conditions and no cold drafts. Does best in partial to full shade and can grow 8-12’ tall with a comparable width. Best to water at root level only to prevent leaf rotting. Philodendrons are considered deer resistant and are bothered by very few bugs. These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from curious pets and children. The sap can be irritating to sensitive skin.
