Sedum Blue Pearl ('Sunsparkler') (PBR) - The colour of the fleshy foliage is reason enough to grow this drought-tolerant sun-lover, as it is a dusky shade of purple that intensifies as the summer progresses, providing a beautiful contrast to silvers and pinks. This plant is also valuable though for its long flowering season, producing small clusters of bright pink blooms, which are irrisistable to butterflies, bees and other pollinating insects.
Purple Fountain Grass - Popular, drought tolerant grass forms neat clumps of purplish maroon blades, 2-4' by 2-3'. Topped by rose red flower spikes summer through fall. Beautiful as landscape specimen or planted in groups. Provides quick annual color in any climate. Perennial in warm climates, Zones 8 - 11.
