Evening Primrose: It flourishes in poor, dry soils receiving hot sun, and thrives despite drought! Eager to reseed, it quickly establishes handsome, mounded colonies just 6 to 12 inches tall that return for years of beauty! The cup-shaped blooms are blush-pink at the petal tips, shading to pure white toward the tiny yellow center. 2 inches across, they jostle one another for position atop the low-growing plant, almost hiding the foliage. And the bloom is successive waves from earlies...
Juniper Lime Glow. A low growing evergreen good for small places and adding color. Turns a coppery bronze in fall through winter. Will look awesome with a blue juniper or spruce. Add in some dwarf nandina firepower (no more than 3 ft tall and wide) that turns and stays red through winter and you'll have a beautiful, interesting all season evergreen garden.
