We recently asked Bailey Lackey to share her top plant picks. Here’s what she had to say:


Golden Ghost Japanese Red Pine

Pinus densiflora ‘Golden Ghost’

An interesting and very beautiful small accent shrub or small tree, featuring variegated green and yellow needles; needle tips are bright yellow in spring and persist through summer, fading to butter; ideal for general garden use, at its best in full sun


Black Dragon Japanese Cedar

Cryptomeria japonica ‘Black Dragon’

A popular loosely pyramid-shaped evergreen with very deep green foliage, slow-growing and graceful; an excellent choice for an accent with a distinctively Asian feel in the home landscape


Sky Pencil Japanese Holly

Ilex crenata ‘Sky Pencil’

A most unique and aptly-named evergreen shrub with an extremely upright and narrow habit of growth, superb choice for small-scale articulation in the garden creation, adds a level of dynamic interest; small leaves further add aesthetic value


Aoi Japanese White Pine

Pinus parviflora ‘Aoi’

A slower growing selection that will maintain a uniform and densely branched upright form; silvery blue-green needles appear bright making this an impressive selection as an accent tree; often trained into bonsai forms


Hetz Columnar Juniper

Juniperus chinensis ‘Hetz Columnar

A tall evergreen shrub with a narrow pyramidal habit of growth; sharp needle-like bright green foliage and abundant bluish-green berries, great for changing up the skyline in the home landscape, makes a great tall evergreen hedge; best in full sun
