Juniper

in

Irregular upright habit gives an artistic, twisted effect. No need to prune as it's valued for its natural form. Terrific as an accent or screen. Makes an ideal foundation planting or informal hedge. Also nice in a mixed shrub border. Excellent drought tolerance once established.

Adaptable and dependable four-season garden interest. Most viburnum offer large flowers that attract butterflies, thick summer foliage, and berries and vibrant fall foliage that attract birds. Nice with fir, rhododendron, crocosmia and variegated periwinkle. Prefers well-drained soil.

Redtwig Dogwood

This terrific year-round plant's most outstanding feature is its bright red winter stems. Spring flowers attract butterflies, and handsome summer foliage and vibrant red-orange fall color add interest in the landscape. Combine with variegated holly, astilbe and golden forest grass for a nice blend of color, texture and form.
