Chilean Guava. Our mama plant is loaded with fruit in the greenhouse right now and it's delicious. One of the perfect evergreen shrubs for mild climates, this has shiny aromatic leaves. Nice white flowers followed by ruby flavorful fruit the size of average Blueberries and all on a broadly columnar plant to 8' tall.
We are so close to being able to grow this outside that we literally can see the 2 miles to downtown PT where this would thrive but no, we're the nursery on the hill in the cold pocket. Yes, a little touchy about it. Flashy variegated leaves in pinks-creams-yellows-whites and greens go with the pink flowers and tasty fruit on this Chilean Guava.
A very cool compact Elm hybrid from England which grows very slowly and maybe you will be eye-to-eye with it in 10-15 years. So think of it as a cool large shrub for your enjoyment and a small tree for the next generation or two. A natural for bonsai or adding a tree element to a rock garden.
'Jim' Pride' is the selection of this sedum relative from the Caucasus Mts which is notable for the showy variegation. This is not as vigorous as the typical green form and the nodding strands of bead-like flowers are creamy rather than yellow as well. Easy evergreen as seen by the stone basin in our shade garden.
Merry Bells. One of our favorite of the eastern woodland wildflowers. Rich gold pendant flowers dangling like earrings on a woman of some serious substance. Combines beautifully with upper crust plants such as Cardiocrinums and Arisaemas yet hangs comfortably with Hostas.
A wunderbar find by plantsman Darrell Probst. This delicate woodlander creeps about sporting a hanging creamy bell-shaped flower in spring. The glory of this selection is the yellow margined foliage putting this way high up on the plant collector's "gotta have" list.
