Aronia (Aronia) melanocarpa 'Low Scape Mound®' (Low Scape Mound® Chokeberry)

Low Scape Mound aronia is a tough, tolerant, tidy little mound of glossy green foliage. In spring, it’s covered in hundreds of dainty white flowers, and in autumn, the leaves turn brilliant red to contrast with dark purple-black fruit. The unique low-growing, mound-shaped habit of this new variety makes it perfect for mass planting as a ground cover or edging plant. Best of all, it thrives almost anywhere: cold climates and hot ones, wet soils and dry ones, sun and part shade.

Schizachyrum (Blustem) Schizachyrium scoparium 'Standing Ovation' (Blue Stem Standing Ovation)

This little bluestem is remarkable for its very tight, upright habit, its thick blades, great drought resistance, and lovely colors: red tips transition through purple down to blue-green! ‘Standing Ovation’ is even beautiful as it goes dormant in winter, when its fine, upright foliage takes on a reddish amber tone. The only maintenance this easy plant requires is that the old growth be cut back in early spring to make way for new growth. It will self-seed and come back larger every year to fill an area, but this spread is slow and never invasive.
