little miss sunshine cistus close‘Little Miss Sunshine’ Cistus

We love Cistus. Poor soil, drought, salt, wind, heat…They take it all! Add deer, pest, and fire resistance, what’s not to love? This new charmer stays compact without pruning and even looks great when not in bloom. Works well as a border plant, or in containers.

Dianella is the ultimate easy-care plant. This tough new hybrid gets strong upright Phormium-like growth from one parent and deep blue color from the other. Plays well with succulents, and makes a great container plant.
