Granite Bay, CA

   A profusion of fragrant, bell shaped pink flowers with raspberry sepals all season long; the bright sepals remain after the flowers are spent, for attractive fall and winter color; a compact habit that is heat and frost tolerant.

 

  Raspberry Profusion Abelia features showy clusters of lightly-scented pink bell-shaped flowers with hot pink overtones at the ends of the branches from late spring to early fall. It has attractive dark green foliage which emerges lime green in spring. The glossy oval leaves are highly ornamental and turn an outstanding burgundy in the fall.

 

  Raspberry Profusion Abelia is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a mounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

 

  This shrub will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting birds, bees and butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

An attractive grass highlighted by fluffy, buff-colored plumes that arch above the lush, green fountain of foliage. In the fall, the foliage turns a lovely golden russet color. Creates a terrific contrast when used among shrubs or as a backdrop in a perennial bed.

 

With its attractive fountain-like flower displays, Fountain Grass is one of the best choices for smaller dry gardens and courtyards. Plant it as foliage contrast and fall color with mixed perennials. Looks best in dry stream beds and around rocks in natural or wild gardens. Shares cultural preferences with many favorite Western native perennials in drought-resistant gardens. Also great for planting next to smaller water gardens, where it won't overwhelm the scheme. Lovely when grown in metal classical containers that bear the unmistakable patina of age, whether true or artificial. Perch these on low walls, seat walls, or on top of masonry columns for a distinctly European look.

 This spreading evergreen shrub grows to 2 feet tall and spreads to 4-6 feet. It has needle-like yellowish-green foliage and pale-pink flowers that appear from winter to spring. Plant in sun to light shade with good drainage and irrigate regularly to occasionally. We have customers who have reported that it does well in heavy soil although it is recommended that this plant be placed where drainage is good. It is hardy to about 20 degrees F and tolerates near coastal windy conditions. A great plant for contrasting other foliage colors and textures. This one-time New Zealand "Shrub of the Year" was apparently first discovered in a garden in Western Australia and first introduced into the US in the late 1980's.
