We have seen this listed as "Profusion" also. Rare large Z5 shrub with pink flower clusters forming wonderful mauve-blue "Beauty Berries," a great show until the birds decide to harvest them during the winter snows. Very beautiful, very desirable.
"Japanese Beautyberry" Small shrub with oval leaves; pale pink flowers (beloved by butterflies) followed by striking blue-violet berry-like drupes in clusters. Certainly one of the most charming shrubs for the garden, often treated as a perennial and cut to the ground each winter so that the new arching stems will form...
"Yugoslavian Bellflower" Carpets of crimpted foliage foil perfectly the sprays of powder-blue cupped starflowers; once established, very drought resistant and a vigorous colonizer. That means do not plant this near tiny treasures which might not appreciate such a vigorous neighbor.
Low carpeting foliage gives rise to strong stalks beautifully displaying the dramatic large purpled rose dangling bellflowers, spotted inside; larger and darker than 'Rubriflora' and quite delighted with the Midwest's climate, unlike so many other "Bellflowers" which slowly fade away in summer's heat. Long an excellen...

Unusual tufts of mahogany chocolate sedge-like leaves frosted pale pewter on twisted tips; very distinctive appearance in the garden or as a container plant (especially as you'll want to bring in the bleached tightly clumped zone 8 wonder for your winter garden indoors)--now quite popular when used as the "mane" or "ta...
Very gold blades of vibrant yellow with clumping habit. Very impressive in the medium to small garden. Size is perfect for the constricted space of small gardens where a bold splash is necessary.
New for 2013. "Star Sedge" or "Gray Sedge" Low growing attractive tufts of grassy green topped with attractively inflated peringynia sought after for dried arrangements; modest garden subject with remarkable "mace" headed seedheads. Zones 5-9 best.
Tightly clumping "Cream Sedge" forms jewel like tuffets of glossy leathery slim blades with far wider cream-ivory margins than the similarly vigorous 8" tall cultivar 'Variegata.' Z5 treasure for bog, border, or small container. Availability can be limited--check before ordering in quantities.
A selection of the very hardy very evergreen "Ebony Grass" with bright white margins on the short leathery leaves held in very tight clumps--grows well in sun or shade. Hard to find species performing as well in our uncertain climate--keeps its contrasty foliage with less winter burning than any other variegated sedge ...
A tried and true selection much prized for its thickly stemmed rounded shape of elegantly toned gray green foliage so perfect with the vivid violet blue flowers. Needs sun and good drainage to flourish.
The delicate "Blue Mist" flowers line the long elegant three foot stems (once the clump has matured--initially shorter) which are punctuated with pairs of serrate leaves--each strikingly margined with bright white variegation. An amazingly beauty which has proven to be hardy Zones 5 thru 9--but note that in the colder ...

Quite a remarkable tropical effect can be achieved with this in the northern garden--especially when the very showy clusters of blossoms are open over the new pinkish gol...

The amazing "Golden Redbud Tree" with heavily textured heart shaped leaves of buttery gold. Keeps its color very well during summer. Lilac purple flowers. New for Glasshouse Works in 2010.
Reintroduced for 2013. New growth emerges creamy white in spring, maturing into a shocking blue in the summer. This "Port Orford Cedar" supposedly tops out at around 6', which makes her more akin to her seven vertically challenged companions.
Formerly 'squarrosa cyano-viridis.' Soft silvery-blue foliage on upright "Blue Moss Shrub." Very handsome outdoor specimen, equally popular as a bonsai or ming tree subject.
Golden thread like arching foliage less likely to scorch in winter sun in our climate than the familiar 'Golden Mops.' A lovely fine textured wide cushion forms from the wiry arched stems cloaked with the new golden mini dreadlock leaves
Elegant arching lemon-chartreuse thread foliage, some with juvenile growth; a sport of C.P. 'Squarrosa Lutea'--more elegant in habit and a paler more refined hue than the common "Golden Mops" usually planted. Takes patience to grow this to a larger size.
Weeping green whips with clumping of the foliage in to tight masses. Robert Fincham notes this is actually C. p. squarossa 'Greg's Reversion' with no official name--selected by Greg William in Vermont. Vigorous in Ohio weather and making an interesting visual with age.
Bright white-flecked foliage very striking, especially as the reverse remains silvery; said to be a sport of 'Minima Aurea.' Rounded cushion outline remains petite enough for a trough if regularly shaped; but also quite successful in your dwarf conifer garden, adding a cool shimmery quality to complement any evergreen ...
Upright conical shrub with delicate frond-like foliage speckled white. A very reliable non-burning heirloom cultivar deserving more attention. Some Europeans list this rarely available distinguished clone as 'nana albovariegata.'
Dwarf mutation of 'Sqarrosa' very densely branched compact gray green globular dwarf with golden tipped new ferny growth which should be protected from sunscald. One of the dwarfest conifers for rockery or bonsai containers.

Tiny lycopodium (spike moss) foliage bright-tipped; forms a very compact bun of thick foliage surviving exposed spots & full sun in our display beds. (But needs pampering the first several years to become established thoroughly.); much sought after by designers of though gardens and shapers of hardy evergreen mini bons...
