Helictotrichon sempervirens - Blue Oat Grass
More enduring than blue fescues, blue oat grass is the best choice for accents. The clear blue summer foliage echoes with dwarf blue spruce and blue junipers. For a dramatic effect, try Helictotrichon with deep maroon leaved canna lilies.

Blue oat grass is such an imposing sight that is has the ability to stop anyone dead in their tracks.

Camperdown Elm

This tree is spectacular in summer with its dense foliage, and short stature. It is a perfect specimen for parks and larger landscapes due to its wide spreading branches which can droop to the ground. ‘Camperdownii’ is usually grafted to Ulmus americana in North America and Ulmus minor in Europe and thus it is susceptible to Dutch Elm disease caused by Elm Bark Beetles. It is sometimes confused with Ulmus glabra 'Pendula' as they are both weeping trees with similar albeit confusing forms. However, ‘Camperdownii’ produces a dome shaped crown, while ‘Pendula’ produces a stiff, flat crown.
