The Black Hills spruce is a smaller growing, tough spruce that doesn’t have as sharp of needles as the Colorado Spruce. It’s green color makes a nice specimen for Christmas lights. They grow to 35 to 40 feet tall and 15 to 20 feet wide. It handles all of our area’s landscaping quirk of sun, heat, cold and soil pH.

The Midnight Rose Coral Bells is a dark purple variety with flecks of hot pink that stand out in shade gardens. Coral bells prefer afternoon shade in our area (noon to 5) and would prefer to have well drained soil. In spring it flowers white. Midnight Rose Coral Bells with their dark foliage contrasts well against bright green foliage to yellow foliage plants like hostas, hydrangeas, or astilbes.

Featured Plants for the Week of December 7th

The Variegated Alaskan Cedar is an evergreen tree that gives a yard texture, height accents, or just a good block. The foliage is dark green with a smattering of yellow needles. This tree grows to about 20 to 30 feet tall and 12 to 15 feet wide, making it a small tree. They can handle fun sun, though strong winds when it’s over 90 can lightly burn the yellow.

Onyx Flamingo Hydrangea is a type of big leaf hydrangea that loves afternoon shade in our hot summers. The pale pink bloom clusters is striking when compared to both the black stems and the dark green foliage. It grows to 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. It also blooms on new and old wood, so now matter how bad winter is, you will still have blooms. If you would like a pale blue version of this, just treat the soil with sulfur, G&B Acid Planting Mix or Aluminum Sulfate to acidify the soil.

The Gold Flame Spiraea is stunning in the fall with a nice bright red fall color. It grows to about 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. Gold Flame handles full sun to part shade as well as being versatile in many landscape areas. In the summer it has a gold/green and has pink flowers in the late spring and summer.

Golden Colonnade Ginkgo is a ginkgo with a strong central leader. Unlike other ginkgos that enjoy being naturally free form. It matures to 45 feet tall and 25 feet wide. Ginkgos do well in the Tri-Cities and are very durable. The fall color is a brilliant golden yellow like the ginkgos on Haines St in Richland. Except Golden Colonnade are male, so no stinky fruit!

Gro-Low Sumac is a tough plant that likes sunny dry spots; that doesn’t colonize like it’s cousin the Staghorn Sumac. It grows to about 2 to 3 feet tall and spreads to about 6 to 8 feet wide. In the growing season it’s a nice medium glossy green but in the fall it’s a brilliant red/orange. It enjoys our alkaline soil and climate. It is also a great candidate for
Fire-wise landscaping.

Hameln Dwarf Fountain Grass also can handle tough spots in the yard that are sunny and hot. It reaches about 2 to 3 feet tall and wide with a dark green foliage that turns to a russet yellow color as fall sets in. The bottle brush like florescence appear in late summer and lasts into winter. Easy to care for with a trim to the ground in late winter. It looks great when mixed with other perennials or larger growing shrubs.

Pink Flame Phlox is a garden phlox that enjoys flowering from July to September with hot pink flowers. It is powdery mildew resistant and reaches about 24 inches tall. They enjoy full sun (at least six hours) and are great for pollinators in summer. It’s short stature helps it handle our frequent winds.

Lime Glow Barberry is a green version of Rose Glow Barberry where it has green white speckled new growth that matures to green and a wonderful red/orange fall color. This blooms early which is great to feed bees early in the season. Like other barberries they are pretty much bullet proof for the area.

Rosie the Riveter Rose is a uniquely shaped rose that pays tribute to woman who worked in manufacturing and shipyards during World War II.  We have been very pleased with it's color, amount of blooming and disease resistance throughout the summer.  The gold blend contrasts well against the dark green foliage. It's a floribunda, so it blooms in clusters and is free flowering leaving it to be pretty easy to care for. Like other roses it prefers at least 6 hours of direct sunlight.

Little Miss Miscanthus Grass is a dwarf Miscanthus with very showy florescence and turns red in late summer early fall.  It grows to about 2 to 3 feet tall and wide. Little Miss prefers at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. A fun little show stopper for perennial beds or desert landscapes on drip.
