Plants are the life of any landscape! In addition to being part of my livelihood, they are a hobby of mine! Although I have many years of experience in landscaping I am constantly learning about plants! And I am always learning about and discovering new plants almost every trip I make to the nursery!
The majesty of Deodar Cedars! One of my sons and I planted this tree many years ago at one of my past homes!
Virdis Japanese Maple! A specimen laceleaf weeping Japanese maple can beautify any entrance!
Lush Autumn Ferns planted by a boulder provides a woodland feel even in the city!
The simple elegance of a single Emerald Green Arborvitae underplanted with vibrant Purple Wave Petunias and Yellow Coleus! Those are stately Cryptomeria planted at the corner of the house!
The right groundcover adds so much interest to the landscaping! Our design and installation included a new woodland stepping stone walkway planted with Blue Star Creeper among the stepping stones. This is a great creeping groundcover with small blue star shaped blooms.
At another one of our past homes we planted this Scotch Pine Topiary to provide distinction for the front of the house! The Spiral Emerald Green Arborvitae made a great companion to the Topiary! These are some of my favorite specimen and columnar plants!
The Glory of Spring!
These two pictures are the same Yoshino Cherry showing off its vibrant, multi-colored floral display!
Yoshino Cherries are hardy, arching, prolific spring performers.
Mopheads, or Threadleaf Cypress, provide a bright yellow show even in the cold, cold days of winter! Plant them by Creeping Phlox, like the above picture, and enjoy the combination of their colors!
Elephant Ears can add interest to any garden! At our last house we had them planted in our pondless waterfall! They thrived in that setting!
Black Dragon Cryptomeria underplanted with Fire Witch Dianthus!
