Evergreen Spurge

Common name:Evergreen Spurge
Botanical name:Euphorbia characias wulfenii

Broad clusters of yellow flowers grow from this evergreen perennial. Its upright stems form a 4' tall dome-shaped bush. Crowded all along the stems are narrow, blue-green leaves. It is fairly tolerant to droughts. In the late winter and early spring, its clustered flowers make dense, round to cylindrical masses. Until the seeds ripen, the color holds with only slight fading. At that point, the stalks should be cut out at the base.

Blue Star Creeper

Common name:Blue Star Creeper
Botanical name:Laurentia fluviatilis

Blue Star Creeper has bright green, nearly stemless, 1/4 in. leaves. In late spring and summer, these form a backdrop for equally tiny, star-shaped pale blue flowers. Also known as Isotoma.

Provence Lavender

Common name:Provence Lavender
Botanical name:Lavandula x intermedia 'Provence'

With tall, 24-30" stems, 'Provence' has true, lavender colored flowers that are fragrant and excellent for cutting. It flowers in early June and has large, gray/green leaves.
