“We like the Nandina ‘Fire Power,’ ‘Otto Luyken,’ and ‘Shamrock’ holly, primarily for their attractiveness in the landscape. When properly placed, we’ve found them to make a landscape pop. In addition, we’ve had no issues with any Nandina or the ‘Shamrock.’ Odds are very good you will find one—if not all—of them in our landscapes.

“We like variegated boxwood, coral bells and Double Knock Out Roses. The Double Knock Out Roses give you blooms all summer with low insect and disease issues. The variegated boxwoods and coral bells give our clients year-round color, so when they come home in the winter, they have the same nice view as they do in the spring, summer and fall. Both of those are also deer resistant. There are other plants we use, but those are some of the pillars we like to build around.”
