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

Sarah Tjepkema, Sales/Operations Team Member

Paint The Town Fuchsia Pinks

Dianthus ‘Paint The Town Fuchsia’

Breathtaking flowers are fuchsia with lavender centers, above mounds of glaucous blue foliage; great for flower arrangements; deadhead to rebloom; pair up with summer blooming perennials and annuals to time a continued flower display


Daisy May® Shasta Daisy 

Leucanthemum x superbum ‘Daisy Duke’

A delightful variety of the ever-popular shasta daisy; numerous beautiful white double blooms with yellow eyes rise above and graciously contrast the deep green glossy foliage; a wonderful choice to mass as a garden focal point


Peve Minaret Baldcypress 

Taxodium distichum ‘Peve Minaret’

A compact narrowly pyramidal dwarf deciduous conifer, native to the Great Lakes and quite hardy; narrow, ferny green leaves turn a golden brown in fall, a wonderful color accent tree for a smaller landscape


Winter Gem Boxwood 

Buxus microphylla ‘Winter Gem’

This compact boxwood is great for smaller areas; foliage bronzes in winter adding seasonal interest; an extremely versatile shrub that’s ideal for small and formal hedges or topiary, takes pruning exceptionally well


Katsura Japanese Maple 

Acer palmatum ‘Katsura’

Striking small tree grown for its ever-changing foliage, starting yellow then to chartreuse and finally brilliant orange in the fall; most attractive when grown in a multi-stemmed form; a great accent tree for the front yard
