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


Butterfly Weed

Asclepias tuberosa

A wonderful selection that is perfect for attracting butterflies to gardens; bright golden orange clusters of fragrant flowers rise above narrow, green foliage during the summer months and into early fall; easy to grow, drought tolerant once established


Dark Mystery Hibiscus

Hibiscus ‘Dark Mystery’

Showy, gigantic, ruffled white flowers have a pink cast, with cherry red eyes, and dark pink veins; the flowers really make a bold statement when contrasted by the deep burgundy to near-black foliage; do not allow to dry to wilting point


Millenium Ornamental Onion

Allium ‘Millenium’

A spectacular ornamental onion forming an upright clump of glossy green, thick, strappy leaves; a profusion of lilac-purple rounded clusters of flowers in mid-summer; impressive when massed in groupings; great as a long lasting cut flower


Fire Chief™ Arborvitae

Thuja occidentalis ‘Congabe’

A distinctive landscape evergreen for color effect, featuring showy reddish foliage at the tips when grown in full sun; tends to be more greenish-orange when shaded; excellent for color accent use in home gardens and landscapes; protect from drying winds


The Rising Sun Redbud

Cercis canadensis ‘The Rising Sun’

A spectacular and hardy spring bloomer, with very showy fuchsia flowers held tightly on bare branches in early spring; beautiful summer foliage varies between gold, peach, red and light green tones; great for small landscapes
