Gigantea Farfugium

Commonly known as a Leopard Plant this perennial has large glossy heart-shaped leaves that resemble lily pads. They can reach a mature height of 3-4 feet and spread up to 2-3 feet wide. Beautiful yellow daisy-like flowers rise above the leaves on multi-branched stems from late summer thru fall and even winter in more temperate climates. They grow best in Zones 7-10 when planted in partial to full shade and require moist, but well-drained soil.

Orange Bulbine

Bulbine is an evergreen, clumping perennial with yellow and orange blooms above onion-like foliage. Because they are a native of South Africa, they can tolerate heat and full sun and are considered drought tolerant. Performs well in Zones 9-11 and can achieve a mature growth habit of 12-15” tall by 18” wide. The flower spikes bloom above the foliage at about a 2’ height. They bloom repeatedly from mid-Spring thru Fall with multiple blooms per stalk. Large clumps of this plant can be dug up and divided to space out or to share with fellow gardeners.

Francis Oxalis

Bright purple, triangular-shaped leaves and pale pinkish white blossoms make this Oxalis a stand out for a container garden, en masse for a stunning focal point or an eye-catching border in a shade garden. In warmer zones (7-10), it is often grown as an attractive ground cover. In cooler zones, containers will need to be brought inside and placed in bright, but indirect sunlight. Or left in the ground, they will die back to the bulbs until favorable conditions return, then sprout back. Can attain a mature height and spread of up to 1 foot. Propagate these by division of their rhizomes or just let them spread naturally.

Dyckias

Dyckias are the shining stars of the bromeliad world. With their beautiful rounded rosettes of colored leaves edged in sharp silvery-white spines, they bring color and snap to any container, rock garden or xeriscape. Most produce an orangish bloom on tall spikes above the foliage in late Spring that attract hummingbirds and bees. Cold hardy, heat and drought tolerant and definitely deer and rabbit resistant, they are a perfect choice for the “plant it and forget it” type of gardener. We carry several different varieties here at the nursery ranging in color from metallic silver to a deep burgundy.

Silver Falls Dichondra

Dichondra, also known as Silver Ponyfoot, is a trailing annual that has beautiful, ruffled, fan-shaped silver-green foliage. Works great as a groundcover, cascading over retaining walls or out of hanging baskets and mixed containers. The silver-gray foliage has a metallic appearance in the sun. Dichondra is a native Texas plant and is considered deer and pest resistant. It is also heat and drought tolerant and is commonly used in xeriscapes.
