This Kit Includes

  • 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.
  • Hydrangea paniculata ‘Jane Little Lime’ (Little Lime panicle hydrangea) Like all panicle hydrangeas, Jane Little Lime is easy to grow, producing flowers on old and new shoots. Neat and clean in spring, this medium shrub emerges with green leaves and forms green flowers that fade into cream midsummer, and mature into deep pink or maroon by later summer or fall. This flower looks great paired with dark foliage or anything with a hint of rose.
  • Ligustrum sinense ‘Sunshine’ (Sunshine Chinese privet) Selected for its foliage, this chartreuse, evergreen shrub is sure to bring some light to the garden. Salt and drought tolerant, it’s also sterile and unable to reproduce, so will stay where it’s put without much effort. This plant is toxic to dogs, cats, and horses though, so keep it out of the pets’ paddocks.
  • Hemerocallis ‘Stella d’Oro’ (Stella d’Oro daylily) This classic, easy-to-grow daylily will bring cheer to your garden for weeks on end. Its golden yellow flowers are iconic of early summer and their fragrance attracts butterflies and hummingbirds to the trumpet shaped blooms. Great for edging and salt tolerant, this compact plant will even retain evergreen foliage in warmer climates for a neat, clean border, even along hardscape.
  • Salvia x sylvestris ‘May Night’ (May Night wood sage) Another mint family favorite, this aromatic herb is well suited for the leading edge of a dry garden where it can attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds en masse. Also known as ‘Mainacht’, this early summer bloomer exhibits rich, fuzzy, violet-blue spikes alongside the catmints, yarrows, and early daylilies. This plant can be deadheaded to intersecting branches for repeat blooms with moderate effort or cut down to basal growth for rejuvenation.
  • Vaccinium corymbosum ‘Legacy’ (Legacy blueberry bush) This late fruiting highbush blueberry will bring fruit to the garden, but that is just one of the benefits of this native wonder plant. Starting in spring, its gorgeous, lantern-shaped flowers will delight you and the bees. Look for native southern blueberry bees (Hapropoda laboriosa), bumble bees (Bombus sp.), Bradley’s adrena (Andrena bradleyi), or carpenter bees (Xylocopa spp.) using a buzzing technique called “sonification” to vibrate pollen from the anthers. Blueberries go on to produce fruit and then exhibit a gorgeous red-purple foliage come fall that will knock the socks off any rival burning bush in town. A couple of notes to consider; 1. All blueberries require acid soil to survive. 2. This self-pollinating variety can bring in even more fruit with a companion plantings of different varieties. more info
