Sword-like evergreen leaves with a bright band of gold down the center of each leaf. Clump-form growing to a height of 2 feet. Tall spikes of creamy white flowers in summer. A colorful landscape stand-out year round.
This yucca has beautiful blue green foliage with numerous curly, white filaments for added texture. It has a neat, round habit, smaller than the straight species. The amazing flower stems reach 4-5’ in height and it’s a host plant for skippers. A tough as nails perennial for sunny, dry sites including dry slopes.
A welcome shot of color in the landscape, this tough, drought tolerant selection demands attention with strap-like, long, green foliage illuminated by creamy white striping along its edge. Forming a neat, rounded clump, ‘Bright Edge’ will send flower spikes from its center to soar above the foliage with clusters of creamy white flowers in the summer.
Yucca gets a bad rap as a landscape plant and who knows why!! Maybe because it seems common, maybe because it looks different, but this American Beauties native has a lot of landscape attributes that make it a garden must-have! Extremely tough, drought tolerant and willing to put up with the driest, sandiest soils, Yucca forms a rounded, spreading mound of long, pointed, deep green, spear-like foliage that gives rise to a towering flower stem that elevates above the greenery in early June. Big, white, bell-like flowers open along the stem for up to 3′ of its length attracting a range of colorful butterflies to sample their nectar throughout late June and July. Yucca does well in full sun and is equally at home in the perennial garden as well as the shrub border.
Yellowroot is a fantastic woody groundcover that easily spreads to form a 1-3’ tall dense carpet, even in shade. It thrives in average to moist, slightly acidic soil. Small purple flowers bloom in spring and later produce star-shaped fruits that are eaten by birds and other small animals. It is the perfect plant to use as transition between sun and shade, and wet to dry. But, it is perhaps best loved for its outstanding fall color that starts out clear yellow before changing to red and purple.
This Weigela really lives up to its name! The wide leaves wing out in pairs, starting with a faint flush of pinky red in spring, and gradually acquiring more red tints by late summer. Easy to grow and easy to care for. Best used as a border.
