Sylvia Goodman Tropical Hibiscus can also be used as a formal or informal shrub for hedging and screens, trained into tree standards, or even trained into large espalier.

Valle Negra Fig

Ficus carica 'Valle Negra'  

A cold hardy, productive fig producing medium-small, dark black to purple, pear shaped figs with a rich sweet, strawberry-like flavor and a dark red-purple flesh and an open eye. Valle Negra Fig, which translates to dark valley, is a vigorous and reliably cold hardy fig selected from a tree in the Alps of Italy in the central portion of the Camonica Valley (Val or Valle Camonica). It was discovered and introduced by an Italian botanist who was, and maybe still is, reportedly in search of good quality cold hardy figs and it appears Sergio hit the jackpot with this one. It is considered by some to be one of the better figs for the Northeastern US. Provide a full to mostly sunny site in a well-drained, average moist, fertile soil for optimum vigor and fruit production. Protect young trees for the first few years especially in zones 8A and colder while they become established. Caterpillar host: Ruddy Daggerwing. Item# 12923

The large, palmate, tropical-looking, glossy deep green foliage of this Variegated Fatsia is splashed with nicely contrasting bright creamy white making this a standout in shaded gardens. Large loose clusters to 18" or more across are composed of 1" to 1-1/2" diameter, ball-shaped white flowers that are produced in fall to winter attracting an amazing number of mainly smaller pollinators and are followed by 1/4" diameter green berries that ripen to black. Fatsia or Japanese Aralia makes an excellent choice for shaded locations and develops into a medium to large, often multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with an initially slow rate of growth that increase to moderate once plants are well-established. Makes a wonderful specimen, informal hedge, or container plant for indoors or out.

Variegated Red Bird Cactus, Jacobs Ladder, Red Slippers Spurge, Devil's Backbone, Jacob's Ladder

Euphorbia tithymaloides 'Variegata', Pedilanthus tithymaloides 'Variegatus'  

Beautiful white edged to pink tinged, succulent variegated ovate foliage adorns the upright, zig-zagging stems on an upright growing succulent. The beautifully variegated foliage of this Red Bird Cactus, actually a Euphorbia or Pedilanthus and not a true cacti, makes this plant worth growing although the plant gets it's name from the clusters of tiny red bird-shaped that may be produced in summer. This is an easy and forgiving succulent that develops into an architecturally pleasing specimen plant suitable for a semi-shaded porch or patio and it tends to have more pink foliage coloration where it receives some direct sunlight as well as during cooler weather. Allow the soil to become somewhat dry between waterings although it can tolerant more moisture when in active growth and less during winter. Item# 598
