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


Dwarf Japgarden Juniper

Juniperus procumbens ‘Nana’

A spectacular and dependable groundcover for sunny locations, extremely low growing and mat-forming, spreads almost indefinitely, very adaptable; superb choice for a low groundcover when used in mass, considered one of the best by designers


White Pine

Pinus strobus

A highly attractive shade tree, features silky smooth long needles which give a fuzzy appearance from a distance, tall wide habit of growth; can windburn in exposed locations, best grown in some shelter, but needs full sun; a beautiful specimen tree


Moonglow Juniper

Juniperus scopulorum ‘Moonglow’

A narrow pyramidal evergreen shrub, with soft textured silvery-blue needle-like foliage and attractive blue berries, a great vertical accent for difficult landscape situations, makes a great tall evergreen hedge


Double Play® Candy Corn® Spirea

Spiraea japonica ‘NCSX1’

An outstanding shrub for color effect in the garden, with glowing yellow foliage which emerges bright red, then orange; flat-topped clusters of contrasting purple flowers in early summer; forms a dense, compact mound that is neat and tidy


Arctic Fire® Red Twig Dogwood

Cornus sericea ‘Farrow’

A compact, dwarf form and very hardy shrub, ideal for general garden use in northern landscapes; intense red stems stand out against the winter snow, excellent for massing; some suckering
