Habranthus robustus, Rainlily Habranthus brachyandrus, Pink Rainlily

(zone 6-9)-  This South American native bulb has narrow, strap-like foliage.  The impressive pale pink flowers are very showy in late summer after a good rainfall. These can be induced to bloom by watering after a dry period, can be grown in pots, and are very pest resistant. Regular irrigation will not get them to bloom more.  Photo credit:  Green Nurseries

Caryopteris divaricata 'Snow Fairy', Variegated Bluebeard Caryopteris divaricata 'Snow Fairy', Variegated Bluebeard

(zone 5-9)-  A Japanese selection of the Himalayan native "perennial Bluebeard".  The variegated foliage has a pungent smell, which repels all pests away, including deer.  In late summer small clusters of blue flowers appear, creating a blue haze above the bright foliage.  Post frost you can cut it to the ground, as it will return in spring, creating a rounded bush of 2-3' tall and wide.  Plant in part to full sun, with moist well drained soil. [4'T X 3'W]

Thujopsis dolobrata 'Jurassic Park' Thujopsis dolobrata 'Jurassic Park'

'Jurassic Park' is a selection of Hiba arborvitae with especially thick and enlarged leaf scales which give it a primitive look. We obtained cuttings from the Unique Plant here in Chapel Hill where their plant grows in full sun. 'Jurassic Park' is a much better grower and more tolerant of less than ideal sites compared with other Thujopsis. Normally I would place Thujopsis in a partially shaded location and sometimes establishing the plant is still difficult.

Magnolia x 'Stellar Ruby' Magnolia x 'Stellar Ruby'

(zone 7) This evergreen Magnolia was selected for use as a screening plant in shade or sun. The plant has rapid growth and is very dense even in shade. The cross made by the late Bill Smith crossed Magnolia figo v skinneriana with Magnolia figo v crassipes. The small pink to ruby flowers are highly fragrant and appear in late spring with occasional blooms through the summer. This plant will be patented.

Cryptomeria japonica 'Golden Promise' Cryptomeria japonica 'Golden Promise'

(zone 6-9)-  'Golden Promise' appears to be similar to 'Vilmoriniana' with a frosting of cream on the branch tips.   This develops into a bun shape with tight stiff branches, and has a slow growing habit.  We have noted that in the nursery it seems to appreciate extra water and afternoon shade, as the bright white tips will burn in too much exposure.  This is a very unique and interesting cultivar, well worth growing.  [2'T x 2'W]

Amorphophallus konjac, Voodoo Lily Amorphophallus konjac, Voodoo Lily

This is a bizarre aroid with a single, huge 3-4 foot diameter leaf with about 150 leaflets, and a giant 5-6 foot tall flower stalk that grows from the dry corm (without roots) indoors in the late winter or April outdoors.   Plant these quite deep for winter hardiness.   Be prepared for the floral scent!  It's fly pollinated.  These are budded corms.

Picea orientalis 'Skylands' Picea orientalis 'Skylands'

(zone 4-7)-  One of the most attractive conifers available!  The exterior needles are bright yellow in full sun or yellow-green in part shade, which contrast well against the interior needles of green.  The foliage may burn in full sun locations in hot summer climates, so we recommend morning exposure and well-drained soil for best performance.  Generally it prefers cooler, less humid climates, but requires some protection from cold winter winds in the north.  In spring, attractive red pollen cones provide interesting and showy contrast with the yellow foliage.  Grafts [35T x 15W]

Abies firma, Japanese Fir Abies firma, Japanese Fir

(zone 5-9)-  This is a very heat tolerant fir that I have seen growing in southern Alabama quite happily.   The foliage is a wonderful dark green and the tree is quite fast-growing.   This can be used as understock for other fir species which allows some other species to be grown successfully in the South.   A must have for southern conifer collectors.
