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.

Texas Sages

Texas Sages are a dense, slow-growing shrub that tolerate heat, drought and poor soils. We carry several different varieties offering silvery-gray, greenish gray to lush green foliages. The beautiful flowers range in shades from pinks, to magentas to bluish purple and are attractive to bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. Thrives best planted in the ground in Zones 8-10 where it's hardy. Can also be planted in patio containers in colder zones for easy of movement and arranging. Left natural, Texas Sages can grow up to 8 feet tall. They handle pruning and shaping well and can even be groomed into a small tree form. Because of its drought tolerance, Texas Sages are often used in xeriscaping plans. They grow best in soils that are well-drained. It is sometimes called the "Barometer Bush" because flowering is triggered by humidity or high soil moisture after rains. These plants love the sun and produce their flowers most abundantly when they receive 6-8 hours of bright light.

Pride of Houston Yaupon Holly

This native Texas holly is most prized for the abundant red berries in fall through winter. The dark green foliage starts off a bright lighter green and darkens into glossy dark green. It attracts birds for the beautiful berries and bees for the small blooms. Thrives best in Zones 7-10 and can take full sun. Can grow to a height of 15-20’ and up to 15’ wide, but it responds well to heavy shearing and pruning so it’s a great candidate for topiary artists. Plant this Pride of Houston yaupon as a single specimen tree or as a beautiful and beneficial clump or hedge.
