Acer palmatum 'Okagami', is a Japanese maple selected for foliage color and because its a relatively slow-growing, garden-sized tree well suited to smaller city gardens.
Rosa x 'Radrazz' Knock Out® is an easy care, low maintenance rose that blooms for a long period.
Salvia 'Hot Lips' delivers delicate airy blooms all summer atop fragrant foliage.
Strappy foliage of a showy, pink phormium provides a continuation of the color story to ground level and adds textural contrast.
Later, Digiplexis Illumination™ 'Flame' will provide a long lasting display of very showy flower spires. This is a relative newcomer to the Pacific Northwest garden scene and initial findings suggest that it will be an annual in our area. So enjoy it for the season but don't expect it to return the following year.
Light, bright and billowy: Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’ is a footlight to the whole scene.
