Golden Dewdrop Duranta

Duranta 'Erecta' (Golden Dewdrop) is a fast-growing evergreen shrub growing from 2-4ft. tall and 1-2ft. wide. This plant produces shiny rich green leaves and loose clusters of vibrant violet-blue blossoms that are often edged in white. Blooming from Summer to Fall, these blossoms are borne onto vine-like branches due to the golden berries it produces. Highly ornamental, they will ripen in late summer to fall allowing birds to enjoy them. Extremely easy to grow, Golden Dewdrop is widely grown in subtropical and tropical areas. It can also be grown as an annual in cooler areas.

Pavonia Rock Rose

This member of the mallow family does well in most conditions. Rock Rose will bloom April to November with a pretty pink bloom. Native from the Edwards Plateau to the Rio Grande plains, it has a very low water needs and is highly drought tolerant. This plant can reach to 4 feet tall. Does best in full sun but can handle partial shade. This plant is not completely deer resistant but it is not their first food choice. Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.

Oxalis 'Francis'

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.

'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.
