With a wide variety of foliage colors usually in the rich deep burgundy realm, and sometimes cream and pink edges, ajuga makes a beautiful groundcover. The foliage is generally crinkled and very glossy as well. However, if you think this is just a foliage plant, you would get quite the surprise as spring eases into summer. Then, ajuga is covered in little spikes of bright blue, purple, pink or white blossoms.

Ajuga

Charming pink-white flowers provide a showy spring display, then produce large, showy red fruit with exceptional flavor and crispness. Great for fresh eating, cooking or pressing for cider. Stores well in cool conditions. Plant another apple variety such as 'Red Delicious' or 'Fuji' for best fruit set. Recommended chill: 800 hours. Deciduous.

Apple - Honeycrisp

Green Giant Arborvitae Thuja standishii x plicata 'Green Giant' The green giant arborvitae is a large, vigorous, fast-growing evergreen shooting up by as much as 3 feet per year until maturity.

Arborvitae - Green Giant Western

Easy-to-grow asters come in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit gardens of all dimensions, shapes, and styles especially cutting gardens and sunny or lightly shaded borders. Although a few species bloom in early spring, most put on a spectacular flower display, supported by evergreen foliage, from late summer well into fall when other summer blooms may be fading.

Astilbe - Vision in White

Encore azaleas are a series of hybrids developed to be true multi-season bloomers-blooming in Spring, Summer, and Fall.

A handsome, compact shrub with colorful coral-orange foliage that lasts into autumn, then turns a brilliant mix of bright orange to brick red, accented with gold margins. Excellent as an accent, or plant in groupings in a low maintenance landscape. Rarely produces seedlings. Vigorous and hardy into USDA zone 3 with winter protection. Deciduous.

Barberry - Golden Ruby

Shiny, deep red leaves cover this naturally dense, globe-shaped shrub. No trimming is needed to maintain its neat, dwarf habit, making it a fine choice for a low maintenance mass planting, low border or accent. Deciduous

Barberry - Pygmy Ruby

So much color and vertical interest! This easy-growing, disease-resistant plant with a bushy, compact habit and very long bloom period thrives even in poor, dry soils and loves full sun, making it very valuable for Western regions. Produces a profusion of showy, upright spikes of white-throated, magenta-red flowers. An herbaceous perennial. A Monrovia exclusive.

Beardtongue - Harlequin Magenta

Bellflowers are a diverse group of plants that come in many sizes and varieties. From diminutive alpine species to upright woodland varieties perfect for cut flowers, there are a number of plants to choose from. However, they all have their signature bell-shape blossoms in common. These cheery little bells grace plants for long periods of time, generally starting in late spring and continuing through summer. No matter what type of garden setting you have, you are bound to find a bellflower that fits your needs.

Graceful, delicate branches combined with small leaves and peeling bark (on some species) make sure that birch trees amp up a landscape's appeal. They're especially dramatic when planted as an allee (in rows on either side of a path), in a grove, or near water where their impact is doubled in reflection. As medium to large trees, members of the birch family can be incorporated into large suburban residential landscapes with relative ease. Many native species provide welcome habitat for local wildlife. Birch trees generally thrive in moist, well-drained soil and cool, moderate climates. They struggle to survive in hot, dry regions.

Birch

Also known as windflower, anemones are grown for their beautiful, nodding blooms on long, wiry stems. The foliage looks similar between varieties, but size and bloom times vary between spring, summer, or fall. Fall-blooming Japanese anemones are particularly noteworthy because they fill the midsummer-to-fall gap in gardens.

Anemone
