One of the most popular and commercially important Olive varieties, Arbequina is a self-fertile semi-dwarf Olive tree that begins bearing at a fairly young age under container culture and takes slightly longer when planted in the garden. Introduced to Spain in the 1600's from Palestine, it has become one of the most popular commercial and home garden varieties that is excellent for both eating and for the exceptionally high quality oil it produces. The brown colored olives are small to medium sized when mature. Olives make beautiful evergreen additions to the garden and landscape with their narrow blue-green foliage with a silvery reverse. Use the Arbequina Olive Tree as a large shrub, small tree, or as a screen or enjoy it as a container plant or bonsai specimen. Provide ample sunlight and a well-drained soil. Item# 11251

In midspring tall blue-gray flowers stalks are adorned with 2-4 grape juice purple buds open to 6" wide flowers with dark purple falls and slightly lighter medium purple standards with a yellow-orange 'beard' or nectar guide. Bobbie's Old Fashioned Purple Bearded Iris is an heirloom pass-a-along that appropriately has found its way to us from both sides of our family and we came to know it as "Bobbie's Purple" since Aunt Bobbie shared it with us. The steely blue-gray fans of foliage act as a wonderful foil for the dark colored flowers and the plants will eventually develop into a groundcover like group of plants. Provide this heirloom Bearded Iris with a well-drained soil in a full to mostly sunny location for optimum vigor and flowering. Sold as individual plants actively growing is their own soil and container. Item# 11696

Dark Knight Bluebeard, Spiraea, Caryopteris

Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Dark Knight'

Dense whorls of nectar rich, purple to dark blue-purple, tubular flowers seemingly cover up the upper most portions of the plant for weeks beginning in mid to late summer and continuing into fall.

Somewhat drought resistant once well-established and prefers a sunny site in a well-drained soil for optimum vigor and flowering. Item# 12117
