(Roman Beauty Rosemary, Rosemary)

(Creeping Raspberry)

What a fall show this unique and exceptional creeping raspberry creates. The compact, cascading, 'Golden Quilt', has pleasing yellowish green foliage that turns eye-catching shades of rich burgundy in fall and winter.

An ancestor of many blackberry cultivars, this native of eastern and central North America is a medium-sized to large deciduous shrub with arching nearly thornless stems.

The compound leaves usually have five leaflets.

This tough cold-hardy shrub prefers well-drained acidic or neutral soil and full to partial sun. It is useful for the wild garden...

This is the American pussy willow, the herald of the coming of spring and the source of beautiful fresh-cut wands for bouquets. It is native to the Northeast and North-central U.S. This is a small, deciduous tree or large shrub that thrives in wetlands along water courses and low places where its feet stay wet. It is a vital plant for holding banks and shores thanks to its extensive network of fine roots (that can also clog water lines and leach fields). Pussy willow produces upright growth but...

(Dappled Willow, Hakuro-nishiki Variegated Willow)

Salix integra is a large, graceful, slender-stemmed, deciduous shrub native to eastern Asia. The leaves of its cultivar 'Hakuro Nishiki' are variegated pink, green and white. The salmon-pink to purple stems provide winter interest. Small, reddish catkins appear in spring before the leaves. It is often grafted onto a standard because of its relatively compact, arching habit.

Plant 'Hakuro-Niskiki' in moist, well drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Partial shade is necessary in hot summer...
