(Little Bluestem)

Little bluestem is a clump-forming, warm-season, deciduous grass native to central and eastern North America. Its narrow, dense, upright, gray-green leaves turn sunset colors in fall. In late summer, tall, hazy panicles of flowers mature into silvery seedheads which provide ornament through fall and winter. The plant is a larval food source for many skipper butterflies and the seeds are enjoyed by a variety of smaller songbirds.

(Japanese Umbrella-pine, Wintergreen Umbrella-pine)

With long, flat needles arranged like radial spokes, the slow-growing Japanese umbrella-pine is an unusual but picturesque tree. From Japan, this evergreen is dense and compact when young and becomes more open with age, attaining a pyramidal shape that can be either tall and narrow or slightly rounded. Its bark is attractive, but since hidden by the foliage, the exfoliating plates and strips of reddish gray-brown are rarely enjoyed.

Cultivar 'Wintergreen' is more cold-hardy than the species and...

(Autumn Fire Sedum, Hybrid Showy Stonecrop)

This popular garden perennial is beautiful and virtually indestructible if given the right growing conditions. 'Autumn Fire' is valued for its late season of bloom and waxy, succulent green leaves. In late summer to fall, strong, upright stems support broad, rounded clusters of flowers. These are small, numerous, star-shaped and light pink in bud opening to russet rose. Stonecrop are herbaceous, so their foliage dies back in winter, but their dried, brown, upright flower heads may be left to provide...

(Elsie's Gold Showy Stonecrop, Hybrid Showy Stonecrop)

Truly spectacular in every way, ‘Elsie’s Gold’ offers a near perfect perennial. Its form, texture and color rescues the late summer garden from doldrums. It was first discovered in New Zealand as a sport of popular Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’ and therefore asks for similar conditions in the garden. This beauty bears deeply serrated foliage in cool silvery green with outstanding golden leaf margins that fade to cream by summer’s end. Mounds of upright stems are tidy and less prone to flop, offering...

(Hybrid Showy Stonecrop, Matrona Stonecrop)

Matrona stonecrop is a compact garden perennial that is beautiful and virtually indestructible, if given the right growing conditions. It is valued for its late season of bloom and succulent red-green leaves with a gray waxy bloom. In late summer to fall, strong, upright burgundy-red stems support broad, rounded clusters of flowers. These are small, numerous, star-shaped and rose-pink. Stonecrop are herbaceous, so their foliage dies back in winter, but their dried, brown, upright flower heads may...

(Hybrid Showy Stonecrop)

This recently introduced scaled-down version of the popular hybrid 'Autumn Joy' fits nicely into smaller garden niches. A hardy herbaceous perennial that includes the rugged Eurasian native Sedum telephium in its ancestry, it forms dense rounded clumps of fleshy oval blue-green leaves from spring until fall. In late summer it bears dense domed broccoli-like heads of small starry rose-pink flowers on compact pink-flushed stems. The flowers deepen in color as they age. After the blooms have...

(White Stonecrop)

Native to rocky areas of Europe, North Africa, and West Asia, this creeping evergreen perennial is a verdant groundcover for sandy or gravelly soils in sun, forming lush green mats of small succulent leaves. The cylindrical to spherical leaves are pale to dark green and sometimes red-flushed. Each has the potential to root where it falls, making this plant potentially invasive in delicate alpine gardens. Flat clusters of small starry white to pinkish flowers appear from late spring into summer.
