Callisia rosea 'Morning Grace'

Piedmont roseling

This beautiful cultivar comes to us from Michael Jenkins. 'Morning Grace' has a dainty garden stature reaching just under a foot in height. Thin, strappy foliage remains a clean, medium green throughout the growing season. A very long bloom period, the triangular, light pink flowers have attractive gold stamens and rest just above the foliage.  Flowers are very attractive to pollinating insects.

Hakonechloa macra 'Albovariegata'

white-striped Hakone grass

This exceptionally elegant grass deserves a spot in every garden with its graceful habit and easy culture.

Taller than other selections, 'Albovariegata' is also more vigorous and should be planted in groups of three or more for best effect. It is very tolerant of sun if the soil does not dry out, but may be happiest in a bright shaded spot. Airy flowers appear in late summer as the foliage becomes tipped in pink.
