Iris sibirica 'Caesars Brother'. Siberian Iris. I love Siberian Irises. Caesar's Brother is a classic, but there are many others that are just as lovely. Their upright, strappy foliage looks great all season, not melting and going brown like bearded iris does. The deep violet flowers appear in June. Remove spent flower stalks in summer. Cut the wizened foliage down to the base in winter. Plant in full-part sun in average soil. A great plant for a wet area, as well.
Clethra Arborea “Lily Of The Valley Tree” Lily Of The Valley Tree is an evergreen shrub or small tree with shiny green leaves. The long bunches of small white lily-shaped flowers are produced in summer and autumn. This plant is a pretty specimen tree for small gardens. Its think foliage makes it great for hedging or screening.
