On this page you will find an assortment of species - a few Loropetalum, some Gardenia, and some especially nice varieties of Pittosporum ( among my personal favorites ). We feel each & every one of these plants have their own special niche in residential landscapes. Some as nice groundcoverings, others as foundation, or accent plants...........who knows what kind of uses some of these plants could have. I've seen some pretty creative ways of utilizing some of these plant species over the years. By all means, don't be afraid to try something a little out of the ordinary!

Aucuba, Ferns, and even Cast Iron Plants are highly adaptable to partial to full shaded areas. For warmer zones, we also offer Coontie Palms, which help to add a tropical touch to landscapes.
