daphne-transDaphne Transatlantica ‘Eternal Fragrance’

Daphnes are well known for their intensely fragrant flowers. A profusion of blush pink blossoms in clusters adorn its compact form over many months providing long-lasting beauty and fragrance in the garden. A tidy landscape shrub for group plantings or containers. Remains evergreen in temperatures above 0° Fahrenheit, deciduous elsewhere.

  • Light need: Partial to Full Sun
  • Water need: Water regularly – weekly, or more often in extreme heat or containers.

Heuchera ‘Caramel Coral Bells’

New leaves emerge bright gold and mature to peachy-orange. Soft but showy color adds warmth and contrast to mixed containers and woodland plants. Thrives in the high heat and humidity of the south. Sun tolerant in cool northern gardens.

  • Light need: Full Sun to Part Shade
  • Water need: Moist, Well-Drained Soil

Echinacea purpurea 'Green Jewel'Echinacea Purpurea ‘Green Jewel’

Fairly compact in habit, an ideal height for sunny borders and growing in mixed containers. The large and fragrant blooms have a row of light-green petals surrounding a large central cone of deep green.

  • Light need: Full Sun, Full Sun to Part Shade
  • Water need: Well-drained soil

Juncus-Curly-WurlyJuncus ‘Curly Wurly’

Aptly named, this unique rush with glossy green, pencil-thin stems that spiral outward from the clump in all directions. A great deer-resistant accent plant that collectors dare not do without. This low maintenance plant prefers to be sited in a bog or other very moist environment in partial shade. Evergreen in mild winter areas.

  • Light need: Partial Sun
  • Water need: Very moist environment

Carex-testaceaCarex Testacea

Green to coppery brown foliage with hints of orange leaves in fall and winter make this sedge a superb selection for the year-round garden. Carex testacea self-sows, but is polite about it. In fact, I welcome the babies to either transplant to another place in the garden, or give to other gardeners.

  • Light need: Full shade to partial sun
  • Water need: Moist, well-drained soil
