Sabal minor
Hardy Dwarf Palmetto
$30.00 $39.00

Hardy Dwarf Palmetto (Sabal minor) is among the world’s most cold-hardy palms and spread over a large geographical area in the Southeast USA. Green foliage is waxy and fan-like; typical of any fan palm. When grown in a northern climate such as Kansas, growth is pretty slow at first and some winter damage should be expected if temperatures drop below -5 degrees F. It is advisable to mulch the crown of a newly planted Sabal minor with 6 to 8 inches of mulch for the first few years. Established plants get about 2 to 3 feet tall after 10-20 years. Sabal minor tolerate excessive moisture and rain gardens but prefer rich well-drained soil. Sabal minor needs full sun and a hot and humid (Kansas) summer to build up stored energy for the next winter. They are also notably drought tolerant if established and grown in full sun. Useful in the landscape as a tropical looking evergreen specimen plant. Unlike other Evergreens, needle palm maintains bright green foliage, not dingy olive green like many conifers. Combine with just about any other flowering plants and most garden themes. This true palm, however, is a must for any tropical theme garden. Mix with hardy banana (Musa basjoo), canna, or crinum lily! Growth is quite slow with young plants but speeds up with establishment and rich soils, regular water, and full sun. It is best to start with large plants as establishment and full winter-hardiness will occur much faster. A thick layer of mulch greatly helps with cold hardiness. South or West exposure is best. Established plants have been spotted in Oklahoma enduring temperatures as low as -13°F in 2021. Repeated or successive cold winters with complete foliage loss can be an issue with this and many evergreen zone 6/7 plants. One occasional difficult winter followed by mild winters is more tolerable. Avoid North-facing exposures.

Sabal minor 'Lawrence' was named by Plant Delights Nursery after Ryan Domnick (the Author) growing it on the South side of a building in Lawrence, KS in 2013 with no mulch. The origin of the original plant (actually 2 plants) is a mystery but new seed has been collected every year since. Seedlings of this survivor plants are sold as Sabal minor 'Lawrence'. After confirmation in fall of 2021, the original plants are still thriving and setting seed after the worst winter in 30-50 years. During that arctic blast of February, 2021, lows down to -17 degrees F on Feb 16th, 2021 were recorded. The longevity of this cold blast was also impressive: 10 days on a row with highs of 10-15 degrees F or lower, 8 nights of lows in the single digits and negatives, and 36 straight hours of 0 degrees F and mostly lower. The two established specimens survived with varying degrees of foliage damage but with complete recovery by summer and 5-7 fully formed leaves by fall. It is estimated they have been in the ground since 2011-2012 and are 2-3' tall. Repeated or successive cold winters with complete foliage loss can be an issue with this and many evergreen zone 6/7 plants. One occasional difficult winter followed by mild winters is more tolerable. Avoid North-facing exposures.

One population of Sabal minor is actually native as far North as Oklahoma (Southeast corner); a resulting variety has been named Sabal minor 'McCurtain'. Plants have been recorded handling -24F in Wichita, KS. 'McCurtain' tends to grow larger and faster than the common species; which is good for replacing lost energy from winterkill. Avoid North-facing exposures.

Sagittaria latifolia
Arrowhead Water Plant
$25.00 $32.50

>>>>>This plant is usually grown as a bog plant needing constantly moist soil rich in organic matter. As a rain garden plant, it will thrive is a depressed area in the landscape that collects rain water from a roof during spring and summer periods of rain but then go dormant if the water hole dries out completely. For the home garden, the species is generally too aggressive to mix with other plants

Salvia darcyi x microphylla 'Windwalker Royal Red'
Windwalker Royal Red Autumn Sage
$20.00 $26.00

>>>>>Red sage is a wonderful heavily flowering perennial found in Texas and higher election Mexico. Foliage is evergreen to about 0°, Beyond that, it becomes a deciduous perennial hardy to about -15 before complete death would occur. During years in which the foliage remains evergreen, and blooms on old word covering the plants during the month of April. If dieback occurs, blooms will still be dramatic but will be delayed until May on new growth. If Diback does not occur naturally, it is recommended to cut back anyways every 2 to 3 years to maintain bushiness. During the summer, foliage maintains very well with heat and drought with sporadic blooming. Another flush of heavy flowering occurs in fall and continues until hard freezes sometimes into November in our Lawrence Kansas zone6 climate. In the landscape, Red Sage is best on a hot south or west side of a house, on a south side of a berm, or any sunny garden area with some North wind protection. The flower power is so great that it would even be worth using red sage as a short-lived perennial or annual though. Growth in containers is amazing when used as an annual. As with any zone6 perennials, be sure to mulch 2 to 3 inches deep to guard against temperatures below -10F. Red sage needs well drained soils on the dry side but summer irrigation is OK. There is quite a bit of variability within the salvia Greggy species with lots of different colors and heights ranging from 1 to 4 feet. This is a true butterfly magnet; I have seen hundreds of yellow sulfur butterflies visiting at the same time as shown in one of our pictures.

Salvia greggii 'Furmans Red'
Furmans Red Autumn Sage
$10.00 $13.00

>>>>>In Lawrence, KS (zone 6a), many dozen established specimens survived -17 degrees F. During the arctic blast of February, 2021, lows down to -17 degrees F on Feb 16th, 2021 were recorded. The longevity of this cold blast was also impressive: 10 days on a row with highs of 10-15 degrees F or lower, 8 nights of lows in the single digits and negatives, and 36 strait hours of 0 degrees F and mostly lower. All survivors had winter sun with South exposures, those without perrished. Repeated or successive cold winters with complete foliage loss seem can be an issue with this and many evergreen zone 6/7 plants. One occasional difficult winter followed by mild winters is more tolerable. This is, however, a very vigorous growing plant so generally will recover in one summer. Avoid North-facing exposures, North sides of a berm, and spots with excessive snow accumulation.

Sansevieria / Dracaena angolensis
Cylindrical Sansevieria / Snake Plant (Tropical)
$40.00 $52.00

Green tube-like leaves from this Cylindrical Sansevieria (Sansevieria / Dracaena angolensis) make an excellent architectural statement. Most Sansevieria are native to are native to rocky, dry habitats in tropical Africa but used as a patio or house plant in Kansas. Grow in full sun to part sun with optional extra watering including that which comes from rainfall. Plants with plenty of time to acclimate will thrive in full sun but be careful not to rush it or sunburning will occur. Generally if moving outside for the summer, allow 2-3 weeks of part shade or morning sun before placing in full sun. Or just keep in part shade or under an overhang. Repotting may or may not be needed depending on how large you want the plant to grow; plants can continue to grow and tolerate extremely root-bound pots but may need wind bracing. Some species root systems will build up enough pressure and will simply break the pot as a friendly reminder when it's time to re-pot! Protect from temperatures below 45 degrees F and move into a bright window over the winter with no watering. Do not allow Sansevieria to freeze or even get close to freezing especially if soil is wet or death may occur. As a winter house plant, it will look presentable all winter long with just a few monthly or no waterings if you forget. As a permanent house plant, provide bright light and allow the soil to dry between waterings for many years of carefree enjoyment. Potted plants are very low maintenance needing only old leaves trimmed once per year. Cylindrical Sansevieria is often grown as a specimen or hanging basket plant.

Sansevieria / Dracaena trifasciata 'Moonshine'
Moonshine Sansevieria / Snake Plant (Tropical)
$40.00 $52.00

Dwarf whitish green leaves from this Moonshine Sansevieria (Sansevieria / Dracaena trifasciata 'Moonshine') make an excellent architectural statement. Most Sansevieria are native to are native to rocky, dry habitats in tropical Africa but used as a patio or house plant in Kansas. Grow in full sun to part sun with optional extra watering including that which comes from rainfall. Plants with plenty of time to acclimate will thrive in full sun but be careful not to rush it or sunburning will occur. Generally if moving outside for the summer, allow 2-3 weeks of part shade or morning sun before placing in full sun. Or just keep in part shade or under an overhang. Repotting may or may not be needed depending on how large you want the plant to grow; plants can continue to grow and tolerate extremely root-bound pots but may need wind bracing.

Sarcococca hookeriana
Himalayan Sweet Box
$8.00 $10.40

Himalayan Sweet Box (Sarcococca hookeriana) is planted for its evergreen dark green foliage and white flowers. Foliage maintains well all year provided that certain cultural conditions are met. Native to shaded mountain areas in forests, valleys or along streams in the Himalayas, it needs moist soil rich in organic matter avoiding too much clay. It is somewhat drought tolerant once established. If low temperatures hit -5 to -10 degrees F, foliage finally dies back to the ground and re-emerges in early spring. Generally this plant can decline after a few years of Kansas climate but is worth a try in perfect soils in well-tended shade gardens. If low temperatures hit -10 degrees F, it may kill an un-mulched plant; protect any zone 6 plant with thick layer of mulch. Lack of moisture and competition with weeds seem to be an issue but it survives just fine. Growth is extremely slow. This is one of the most deep shade tolerant plants available.

Sauromatum venosum
Voodoo Lily / Sauromatum

>>>>>Voodoo lily is a perennial tuber generally grown as a curiosity for its interesting foliage. The single leaf consists of a stalk (petiole) with mottled pinkish-gray and olive green coloration. The single intricate leaf has horizontal sections giving it a tropical umbrella-like effect. Larger tubers (about the size of a grapefruit or larger) may produce a single "flower" in spring before the foliage appears. The "flower" is actually a large shiny purple to maroon ruffled spathe. When in bloom it produces an odor like a dead animal for 1 day. This is intended to attract the carrion flies that are its natural pollinators. It is possible to overwinter these in the ground in Kansas by placing a 6-12" mound of mulch over deeply planted tubers. New growth will usually be delayed until June but quickly regains full height and will get bigger each year; buried tubers are hardy to zone 6. If growing as a potted patio plant, move into dark garage or basement and keep above 32 Degrees F. Allow to go dormant as needed with little care, just cut off dead foliage and place back out in April or May with a time-release fertilizer.

Saururus cernuus
Lizards Tail Water Plant
$25.00 $32.50

Lizards Tail Water Plant (Saururus cernuus) is a herbaceous perennial that features clean green foliage and white flowers that bloom in the summer months. Leaves are heart-shaped (cordate) and alternate along the stem of the plant. When the leaves are crushed they release a citrus or sassafras aroma. The native range covers much of the eastern United States including eastern Kansas. This plant is often grown as a marginal aquatic plant in standing water or as a potted plant in water gardens. It can also grow as a bog plant needing constantly moist soil rich in organic matter. As a rain garden plant, it will thrive is a depressed area in the landscape that collects rain water from a roof during spring and summer periods of rain but then go dormant if the water hole dries out completely. It may also be grown in average garden soils provided extra water is supplied during droughts. For the home garden, the species is generally too aggressive to mix with other plants. This can also be a problem in a water garden if you fail to divide this plant after several years. Lizard's Tail is a rare water garden plant that can also tolerate shading by larger trees.

Scadoxus multiflorus
Blood Lily / Torch Lily (Tropical)
$30.00 $35.00

Jaw-dropping flowers! African Blood Lily (Scadoxus multiflorus) produces a mass of tiny florets with prominent stamens clustered in one large, orange-red, softball-sized, bottlebrush, round flower. It is so eye-catching it wins a place in many summer gardens. Reminds me of a giant red dandelion seed head! This South African native is 8"-10" tall and provides bright color in the late summer garden. Bold, broad green leaves emerge after the flowering is over. Although it is said to need partial shade, we have this pest resistant, adaptable plant happily blooming in full sun; blooms mid-summer. Winter hardiness: zones 7/8-10. Plant bulb outside as an annual before flowering: planting already flowered bulbs is not recommended unless you dig it up for winter storage. If grown as a potted plant, bring container indoors and either grow them as a houseplant in a lighted area. Foliage will look good for a few months before finally dying back. Eventually allow bulb to go dormant stopping the water and store bulbs dry in the container with soil anywhere between 40-70 degrees F. African Blood Lily will bloom year after year when grown as a potted plant; late to emerge in the spring so don't throw it out! It is possible to overwinter these in the ground in Kansas by placing a giant 12" mound of mulch over deeply planted bulbs. New growth will usually be delayed until late May/early June but quickly regains full height. In our trial gardens in Lawrence, KS (zone 6a), a bulb planted over 8" deep and next to a South-facing brick wall with 6-8" of leaf mulch survived -17 degrees F. During the arctic blast of February, 2021, lows down to -17 degrees F on Feb 16th, 2021 were recorded. The longevity of this cold blast was also impressive: 10 days on a row with highs of 10-15 degrees F or lower, 8 nights of lows in the single digits and negatives, and 36 straight hours of 0 degrees F and mostly lower.

Schizachyrium scoparium
Little Bluestem Grass (Mixed Varieties)
$10.00 $13.00

Little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium) is a prominent prairie grass usually found in the short to medium grass prairies of Kansas and most common in the midwest and Great Plains. It also occurs sporadically throughout most of the United States in open areas where trees cannot grow. The spring and summer foliage is mint green to blue green. Depending on the variety, they gradually turn a reddish purple color in late summer progressing to deeper reddish purple, red, or orange by fall. At this time when the seed heads have extended, it is at its prettiest. As cold weather sets in and freezes occur, dried foliage turns a pinkish orange with tan and red shades again depending on the variety. Winter color is persistent and lasts until spring cut back in March. Little bluestem is very tolerant of different soils but prefers dry, sandy, loam, or clay soils with plenty of full sun. If planted in rich soil or given too much water, plants tend to grow too tall and flop by late summer. However, there are now improved cultivars that resist flopping. Good air circulation and some wind is needed to avoid rust diseases in humid areas. Sometimes if planted too shallow or if mulched too thickly, plants can heave and die in the winter. In the landscape, little bluestem looks best when planted in medium to large groups giving the look of a miniature prairie. It also combines very well with many other plants that have different textures and colors. Generally if given the proper placement and growing conditions, little bluestem will last indefinitely. Little bluestem as one of the four major grasses (along with Big bluestem, Indiangrass, and Switchgrass) covering millions of acres and Kansas including the Flint Hills. Where and when conditions are safe, it can be burned in late winter or early spring in a prairie or meadow before new growth appears. Many cultivars have been released improving foliage color and flop resistance.

Kamtschaticum Sedum (Sedum kamtschaticum) is known for its compact mats of bright green foliage and yellow-gold flowers in the spring. Fall color turns a beautiful firey orange-red before going dormant. Kamtschaticum Sedum is native to northern China and along the Pacific coast of Siberia including the Kamchatka Peninsula with a similar climate of cold winters and hot summers. Bright green growth emerges early in the spring and spread slowly, rooting a little bit as it spreads but not aggressively. Growth is dense enough to resist most weeds. Kamtschaticum Sedum is useful as a small scale groundcover, rock garden plant, retaining wall plant, or even dry shade gardens. This tough sedum will grow in full sun to full shade in just about any soil except for wet poorly drained ones. Of all of the sedums, this is probably the most resistant to any kind of problems including root rot. I have witnessed clumps surviving and thriving for 20-30 years or more. There is really almost no maintenance with this sedum but you may choose to weed eat it in the winter for a more tidy appearance. The only slight problem is that when grown with too much water, The crown opens up as it flops over and looks slightly untidy. The flowering period is also pretty short. Considered one of the best plants for solving your most difficult dry-shade landscape challenges.
