This Kit Includes

  • Hydrangea arborescens ‘Invincibelle Ruby’ (Invincibelle® Ruby Hydrangea (Smooth Hydrangea)) This cultivar of a eastern Unites States native, was developed for its burgundy pink flowers. Best in part shade or sun with evenly moist soils, this plant grows naturally in the protected woodland setting, where it is a host plant to the Hydrangea sphinx moth (Darapsa versicolor) and the Hydrangea leaf-tier moth (Olethreutes ferriferana). Blooms will emerge on new wood and last all season. Use as a cut or dried flower or leave blooms to ornament the garden until winter. more info
  • Juniperus horizontalis ‘Wiltonii’ (Blue Rug juniper) Native to much of the US, this creeping groundcover forms a dense, evergreen mat over infertile soils and rocky outcroppings. Tolerant of low water situations, this plant is a great choice for rock gardens
  • Juniperus virginiana ‘Skyrocket’ (Skyrocket eastern red cedar) The species native to North America, this columnar variety is prized as a unique and lovely narrow specimen. With evergreen, blue-green foliage, this salt and drought tolerant conifer can be grouped for screening or placed as a garden accent. Female plants produce blue berries, which birds love. more info
  • Leucanthemum superbum ‘Becky’ (Becky shasta daisy) This cut-and-come-again daisy brings loads of mid to late summer joy to the garden. Great for cut flowers and a centerpiece in the perennial bed, this plant is as dependable as it is flowerful as long as you keep it out of soggy soil. It is pollinated by bees, wasps, flies, butterflies, and beetles but toxic to pets.
