This Kit Includes

  • Acer palmatum ‘Bloodgood’ (Bloodgood Japanese Maple): This is the hardiest of the Japanese maples, and with its noteworthy palmate, red foliage, an emblematic plant in the Asian-inspired garden. Slow growing, but the mature tree exhibits an elegant and iconic winter form that can be enhanced with careful pruning. Best if sited in partial sun or sheltered locations in moist, acidic soils.
  • Liriope muscari ‘Big Blue’ (Big Blue Liliturf) This grass-like groundcover requires low maintenance and maintains a clean, green appeal. Blooming in spring with lavender tufts, the flowers will fade into dark little berries by mid-summer. Consider this as a low-mow, lawn alternative for areas not exposed to foot traffic.
  • Ilex crenata ‘Soft Touch’ (Soft Touch Japanese Holly) A great boxwood substitute, this acid loving, evergreen shrub grows in neat little mounds. Black fruits are attractive to birds but require a male and female plant to produce. This plant is also host to specialist, cellophane bee, Colletes banksi. more info more info
  • Juniperus horizontalis ‘Wiltonii’ (Wiltonii creeping 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.
