What would gardening be without exciting new plants. Here's a collection of 5 unique and interesting plants to consider adding to your garden for July 2011.



Beesia deltophylla

 Beesia
Beesia deltophylla
An excellent evergreen groundcover from the Dan Hinkley Collection. Exceptionally shiny, green to gunmental blue, heart-shaped leaves and pretty star-shaped flowers in mid to late spring. A fuss-free filler for shady understory spaces or a woodland garden. Best in full to partial shade. A slow grower. Maximum 18-24 inches tall and as wide. Hardy in zones 7-9

Justicia brandegeana




Shrimp Plant
Justicia brandegeana
A terrific tropical element to use in pots on patios or planted in entryways to enjoy the pendant terminal spikes of showy, unusual flowers. An evergreen in warm climates, but treat as an annual or as a houseplant in winter here in the pacific northwest. Best in full to part sun. Flowers year round (in warm climates). Will grow 3-4ft tall. Water regularly when top 3 inches of soil is dry. Hardy in USDA zones 9-11



Dianella revoluta 'Baby Bliss'

Baby Bliss Flax Lily
Dianella revoluta 'Baby Bliss'
A compact, extremely versatil and easy-care selection with blue-green foliage and pale violet flowers followed by attractive purple berries. An excellent mass planting or border in front of shrubs. Tolerates most any soil and salt spray. Evergreen. Thrives in either full sun or shade. Forms small clumps 1ft tall and 6 inches wide. Hardy in USDA zones 7-11. Needs only occasional water once established.



Disporum pullum 'Variegata'

Variegated Fairy Bells
Disporum pullum 'Variegata'
A charming groundcover with dark green leaves sreaked with pure white, golden fall colour. Easy to grow and makes a good naturalizer. Spreads to form a loose carpet of arching stems. Large creamy white, bell-shaped flowers in spring. A woodland plant best in cool shady sites. Height 40-50cm. Spread: 60cm. Hardy to zone 5.



Eucalyptus parvula

Small Leaved Gum Tree
Eucalpytus parvula
This mid-sized tree has juvenile leaves that give way to longer-pointed mature foliage which is attractive for cut arrangements at any age. Tolerates poorly drained, infertile soils and drought. Fast growing, with spreading, semi-weeping branches to 30-50ft tall and wide. Hardy in zones 7-11. Evergreen. Best in full sun. Water occasionally as needed.

All of these plants are available at Art's Nursery, but possibly seasonally and in limited quantities. Please give us a call at 604.882.1201 for more information or to have us put one of these specialties aside for you.
