All are guaranteed to capture attention in the year ahead.

Aeonium 'Mint Saucer'
Aeonium 'Mint Saucer' When planted in mass, this gorgeous green succulent provides a showy display that anchors the most distinguished succulent garden. This beauty also looks great in containers. Beautiful all year long, it has densely-set leaves in large rosettes that grow to 16 inches across. Best of all, this versatile succulent tolerates shade and performs especially well in coastal gardens.
Cordyline 'Electric Pink'
Cordyline 'Electric Pink' This showstopper lives up to its high-voltage name. It surpasses other ornamental grasses with boldly striped leaves of maroon and shocking pink. This well-behaved Cordyline is clump-forming and reaches only 2 - 4 feet in height and width. Place in large mixed containers or flower borders to instantly add an exciting new look.
Dymondia margaretae
Dymondia margaretaeThis silvery ground-hugging plant is unrivaled as a ground cover in the Mediterranean landscape. A top choice along pathways and between flagstones, Dymondia forms a hardy blue-gray carpet so tight it's impervious to weeds. Patience is the main requirement for this slow-growing plant. It may require more initial care, but once established, this little gem looks beautiful for years with no upkeep whatsoever.
Dianella caerulea 'Cassa Blue'
Dianella caerulea 'Cassa Blue' ['DBB03'] Combine stunning soft blue foliage with an abundant spring display of cobalt blue flowers and you have outstanding foliage contrast all year. This “no cane” form of flax lily is slow-growing and stays as a tuft of foliage to 18 inches tall. Tolerates full sun to part shade, sandy soils, wind, salt, and even heavy clay if drainage is adequate.
Echeveria 'Black Prince'
Echeveria 'Black Prince' The dark chocolate rosettes of this hardy succulent are splendid in contrast to lighter-hued varieties. One of the darkest Echeverias, each distinctive rosette can grow to the size of a small dinner plate. A spike of brilliant red flowers rises from each center in autumn and winter. Tolerant of a wide range of conditions including frost, it offsets to form large clumps.
Pennisetum 'Fireworks'
Pennisetum 'Fireworks' [PP18,504] Say hello to the first variegated purple fountain grass. The arching leaves of this showy variation have stripes of white, green, burgundy and hot pink, imparting a candy cane-like appearance. Purple tassels rise above the foliage in late summer. Occasional pruning will show-off the vibrant new growth. Stunning in containers.
Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost'
Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost' Continuously blooming clouds of white flowers float above finely textured apple-green foliage. This delicate-looking perennial may be small in stature, reaching 12 to 18 inches tall and wide, but is easy to grow and surprisingly tolerant of drought and heat. Combine this airy plant with bright colors for a dazzling border.
Lomandra longifolia 'Breeze'
Lomandra longifolia 'Breeze' ['LM300'] This ornamental grass boasts a fine-leafed spread of shiny evergreen strap-like leaves. A closer look reveals curiously cut leaf tips accented by spiny flower spikes with a light scent like sweet honey. It is both appreciated indoors and out. An ideal choice for mass plantings, especially in difficult situations like the Eucalyptus understory. Reaches 24 to 40 inches tall and wide; drought and frost tolerant.
Leucadendron 'Safari Sunset'
Leucadendron 'Safari Sunset' Fiery red bracts on densely covered tall stems produce gasps of wonder. No wonder this is one of the most popular Leucadendron available. This is a vigorous, erect grower to over 8 feet tall and tough enough to handle frost, alkalinity and clay soils. The flower is actually an insignificant cone surrounded by large colorful bracts. Excellent for cut foliage harvesting.
Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Golf Ball' – Monrovia
Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Golf Ball' – Monrovia This vigorous little shrub is near-perfect for hedges. Its fast growth and dense form requires very little pruning. Add to that its refreshing bright mint-green foliage and you have an interesting alternative to boxwood in formal gardens and topiaries. Or grow in containers for a semiformal effect on patios and terraces.
