Crape Myrtle

Crape Myrtles are a favorite for fun summer color. White, pink, magenta and purple - there is a color to fit any landscape. With their multi trunks and in older plants its peeling bark, they will make a great feature plant in your landscape. Plant in full sun for the best blooming. They can take very light shade but, will not have as many showy blooms. Water slowly and deeply at least once a week during the heat of the summer until they mature. Trim back in the late winter and early spring while dormant to shape, but it is not recommended to cut back too deeply Beware of planting near a pool area as they tend to decorate your pool with their blooms and leaves.

Pachysandra Japanese Spurge

Pachysandra or Japanese Spurge is considered one of the toughest groundcovers once it's established. From drought conditions to kids and pets running across it, this sturdy groundcover can handle most anything. Plant in early spring or fall so, it has time to establish before hot or cold weather sets in. This plant works well in helping to control erosion in many areas, and is largely used by landscapers for this reason. Hardy in Zones 4-7. Plant in dappled sun or shade. If planting in a sunny location, this plant will require more water until it has become established. Japanese spurge also makes a nice addition to a mixed planter on a deck or patio.
