'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.

Bougainvilleas

This heat loving flowering shrub boasts beautiful bracts (colored leaves) atop upright vining branches. These flowering machines will bloom year-round in warm climates. In a climate where the winters are cool, they’ll bloom for 9-10 months. The tiny white centers are actually the flowers and the bracts are what give us those big shows of color. Bougainvilleas put out a big explosion of color, drop their bracts and then flower again. Makes for a wonderful accent plant as its rapid growth makes this an excellent selection as a cover for arbors, trellises, and fences. Prefers dry well drained soil for best flower production.

Gaillardia 'SpinTop Copper Sun'

Gaillardia ‘SpinTop Copper Sun’ has large, coppery-orange blooms that stand out above a low mound of finely textured, light green leaves. Growing about 14” tall and wide, it requires little maintenance, is drought tolerant once established, and is deer resistant. With fantastic colors and intense flower-power, 'Copper Sun' is impressive in many applications including container gardens as well as traditional perennial gardens.

Cactus Spineless Prickly Pear 

The spineless prickly pear cactus is fast growing with succulent leaves that are 6 inches wide and spinless. During late summer bright yellow flowers will appear and are then followed by red, pear-like fruit. They require full sun with little to no watering. In the landscape, they are popularly used as hedges and with a height of 10-15ft, they can make great barriers.

Serissa 'Tokyo'

The Serissa Tokyo is a small rounded fine-textured evergreen shrub with small bright green foliage. Clusters of soft pink and white flowers will bloom in early summer to late fall. A relative to the Coffee plant, Serissa is a favorite of bonsai enthusiasts. The species name refers to the fetid smell of the leaves and stems when bruised. They can reach to a mature height of 2-4 feet tall and wide. Will grow best in full sun to part shade.
