1-2'H Perennials

These perennials usually remain in the 1 to 2 feet high range under most conditions. They are still low enough for the front of perennial border, garden, and landscape and some of the rhizomatous species will make low to medium height groundcovers. Their tidy habits also lend them to use as fillers and spillers for container specimens and in combinations for small to medium sized containers. Growing conditons and how well a plant is established may affect it's ultimate size.

 

A graceful medium to soft textured fern with fnger shaped foliage that is white with a narrow outline of bluish green. Albolineata Cretan Brake Fern is an easily grown tropical to tender perennial that slowly builds into an almost layered mound of foliage perfect for adding a cool lush tropical look whether as a container specimen or as part of the garden and landscape where hardy.

One of the hottest new native grasses on the market! Blackhawks Big Bluestem starts off in spring as a deep green clump of upright to arching blades that may be tipped with red to purple.
