We are thinking hardy to zone 8.

Agapetes smithiana APA 022 - Red Calyx Form Agapetes smithiana APA 022 - Red Calyx Form

This epiphytic Vaccinium relative - indeed some have merged the two genera - is a stunner. Growing on trees in the cloud forests of the Himalaya, this forms woody lignotubers from which arise the branches clad in evergreen leaves which hold the narrow pendant yellow flowers in late winter and spring. This is an especially good form with red calyces. Tolerant of light frost and needs very good drainage.  Our overwintering hummingbirds love this in our greenhouse.

Artemisia pedemontana Artemisia pedemontana

Rarely offered little Wormwood which is troughable which is a term we should trademark in order to capitalize on the 20 or so people who have both troughs and a penchant for dwarf Artemesia.  We need a new business advisor or maybe we should listen to the current one.  Few inches high and spreading.  Yellowish flowers.

Tough evergreen tolerant of dry shade but with water, it will grow faster.

Callistemon subulatus Callistemon subulatus

One of the hardiest Bottlebrushes to 10F with the added benefit of having red flowers. In growth, this this tends to have graceful arching branches which softens what can sometimes be a rigid look to Callistemon.  Not that that is a bad thing but this looks a bit more cuddly.  This grows on stream banks in Australia and can take quite wet spots but is also tolerant of dry.  Deer proof!

Callistemon viridiflorus - Hardy Clone Callistemon viridiflorus - Hardy Clone

This clone of an already hardy bottlebrush species has been hardier than
the typical offering by a few degrees and personally, our most grievous
losses have been by a few degrees.  This is likely from a higher and
more exposed location in Tasmania as it is also more compact than
typical and has handled one winter where it went into single digits.

Colquhounia coccinea Colquhounia coccinea

Himalayan Bush Mint.  Surprisingly hardy species - the gestalt at first glance is gotta be tender - that will be valuable late summer-fall color.  Soft felty leaves on a plant that can hit ten feet tall, you grow this not for the aromatic and pettable foliage but for the tubular orange-red flowers in September-October mainly.  Cut to the ground by hard frost but will regrow and would totally groove on a wall in its colder zones.  Pronounced ko-hoo-nia.

Cornus sanguinea 'Compressa' Cornus sanguinea 'Compressa'

One of the most distinctly "What is that plant?" deciduous shrubs around is this tough little mutant redstem dogwood.  Intensely columnar and slow with curled leaves held close to the vertical stems. These turn a most satisfying purple in the fall.  As far as flowers go, forget about it.  Slow growing, our 6 footer in the garden is pushing 40 years of age.
