Buddleia

Buddleias provide beautiful color from summer to fall. Commonly known as the Butterfly Bush, Buddleias are enticing to both hummingbirds and butterflies.  We currently have two varieties of Buddleia on availability: Pink Delight and Attraction. Both varieties would thrive in areas with full sun and well-drained soil. Pink Delight grows the largest flower spike of any variety, and Attraction (a deep purple bloom) provides the option of a more compact, rounded shrub. Both varieties can grow to a height of about 6’ tall with a spread of up to 5’.

Water Oak

Water Oak (Quercus nigra) is medium to large, a semi-evergreen tree. The leaves are dark green and bell-shaped, with alternate arrangement. The Water Oak has a medium fast growth rate, with height increases of more than 24" per year. At maturity, the Water Oak can grow to a height of 50-80’. Unlike the typical Live Oak, the Water Oak grows in a in a conical form and has a rounded crown at the top. The acorns of the Water Oak also differ from the Live Oak, they are a bit smaller and their caps are woolly, rather than scaly. The Water Oak grows in USDA zones 6-9.

Andorra Juniper

Andorra Juniper is a spreading evergreen with foliage that is bright green in summer, and turns to purple-plum in the fall and winter. It has a low growth habit with tightly knit branches and is versatile in rock gardens, borders or in mass planting. Andorra Juniper will grow to be about 12 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of up to 10 feet. This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, making it an ideal choice for a low-water garden or xeriscape application.

Thryallis

Thryallis is a compact, upright rounded, evergreen shrub. It is covered year-round with small yellow flowers. The Thryallis does best in full sun and grows to be 3- 6 feet. It is low-maintenance but may require occasional pruning to maintain its shape. This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and birds, but it is unappealing to deer. Thryallis tolerates dry conditions and should be planted in well-drained soil.

Chilly Chili Ornamental Pepper

The Chilly Chili pepper (Capsicum annuum) is an ornamental as well as edible pepper. It is heat tolerant and requires very little maintenance. It can be grown indoors or outdoors, and can be enjoyed by those with the even the most sensitive taste buds due to its very mild flavor. The peppers range in color from red, to yellow and orange. The Chilly Chili pepper is compact and does great in containers or landscapes.
