Whorls of egg-yolk yellow 1 1/2" long tubular flowers surround the fuzzy gray green stems in summer. Jerusalem Sage is an heirloom tough and easy to grow, bushy clump-forming perennial whose fuzzy gray-green foliage looks very similar to the cooking Sage, Salvia officinalis, although it lacks the sage-like fragrance. Flowering can be extended by deadheading the spent flowering stems. Provide Jerusalem Sage with an average moist to semi-dry (once well-established) well-drained soil in a full to mostly sunny site for optimum vigor and flowering. It is considered to be a fairly reliably root hardy die-back perennial in zones 5-7 and generally remains evergreen in zones 8-10. It makes a forgiving container plant as well as a low maintenance addition to the garden and landscape. An RHS Award of Garden Merit winner. Item# 12179

Little Ruby Dwarf Fig

Ficus carica 'Little Ruby'

A dwarf and hardy fig that is an excellent choice for patio culture as far north as zone 6. Little Ruby produces a breba crop of medium sized sweet red figs with strawberry colored flesh.

The 2-3" wide cupped fragrant roses have red outer petals with deep rose inner petals and are produced throughout the growing season on this disease resistant small shrub. This long-loved rose from 1834 bears many names attesting to its prowess as a garden and landscape rose and it is one of the few roses that has proven resistant to chili thrips in Florida. It is very similar to the ever popular Craimoisi Superieur with which it is often confused but Louis Philippe generally has a more compact habit growing to 3-4' high and wide on average and the flowers seem to be more pink in the inner petals. Like all China Roses provide this easy to grow plant with a full to mostly sunny site in an average moist, fertile soil for optimum vigor and flowering though it is fairly adaptable. A excellent rose for hedging, landscapes, and as part of a mixed perennial border. Item# 12300
