The perennial Chelone is a native plant with clean, green foliage. In late summer tall spikes of white or pink flowers bloom. The plant is named after its flowers, which look like turtles coming out of their shells (some imagination may be needed to see this!).

Sedum is a wonderful plant in a sunny, well drained garden. The fleshy leaves retain water, making sedum drought and heat tolerant once they are established in the garden. They flower in late summer, and some of the buds on our plants are just starting to open.

Callicarpa certainly lives up to it common name. Beauty berry bushes have small pink flowers in clusters along their long, arching branches during the summer. In fall and winter glossy purple berries replace the flowers.

Planting fall performing plants earlier than their peak season allows them to become established in the garden. Here are a number of varieties we love for their flowers, fall leaf color and stunning berries.
