Emerald Colonnade® Holly Topiary

Add instant impact to your porch or patio with the bold foliage of Emerald Colonnade® Holly topiaries! These easy-care statement plants are ideal for busy homeowners and urban living because they thrive in containers. With proper care, this spring beauty will add architectural interest, dramatic form, and vibrant color throughout the year.

Emerald Colonnade® Holly Topiary

Emerald Colonnade® Holly is a lush and versatile evergreen. It has a natural pyramidal form, making it an excellent topiary specimen. This unique spring-blooming shrub produces small cream-colored flowers complemented by dense, glossy green foliage. One of the many benefits of growing Emerald Colonnade® Holly is its easy care. It adapts to a range of soils and can tolerate mild drought once established. Feed with Calloway’s Premium Tree & Shrub Plant Food at the time of planting or in early spring.




Create a tropical oasis with fast-growing unique flowering plants and bring home Bougainvillea! You’ll love the vibrant color and dramatic form. Bougainvillea is a tough, woody vine covered in bold foliage and unique blooms.

Bougainvillea blooms

Did you know the colorful, paper-like flowers aren’t actual flowers? They are called bracts which are modified leaves in shades of purple, orange, and red that house small white and yellow blooms.

Bougainvillea container garden

Bougainvillea is perfect for container gardening because it needs plenty of room to spread and grow. Pair with your favorite pottery or hanging basket for a spectacular show of gorgeous spring color. For the best blooms and fullest appearance, display your new treasure in an area that receives full sunlight, and only water when the potting mixture feels slightly dry. Bougainvillea is a hungry plant and requires regular fertilization for rich and full blooms throughout the growing season. Feed your plants as directed with Calloway’s Premium Tropical Plant Food.


Ginseng Ficus Bonsai

Ginseng Ficus

Ficus Bonsai

Maintain a humid environment with a daily misting and give your plant plenty of sun exposure by displaying it on a sunny windowsill. Bonsai plants draw very little nutrients from their soil, so it is important to replenish their supply occasionally. Feed as directed with Bonide® Houseplant Liquid Plant Food.




Are you craving vibrant color? Look no further than unique spring-blooming Primrose. They will add delightful pops of color with their diverse range of sizes, shapes, and vibrant blooms. In fact, they are prized for their delicate and colorful blooms, which come in many shades including pink, purple, blue, red, yellow, and white. Some of the flowers even have two or more colors.

Primroses thrive in partial shade and moist soils, and they’re ideal for rock gardens, woodland areas, and indoor gardening. When planting outside, put them in a shady spot that receives some morning sun, and for indoor gardening, display them on a brightly lit windowsill. Primroses perform best in moderate to cooler temperatures. Growing these deer-resistant unique spring plants in your favorite pottery is ideal so you can easily move them to cooler spaces during times of extreme heat. Use Calloway’s Premium Container Potting Soil for a well-draining soil with adequate moisture retention.


Windmill Palm

There are a few main requirements for growing Windmill Palms with success. They thrive in most soil conditions and are fantastic drought-tolerant statement plants for waterwise gardens. Plant in a sunny location and water weekly until established, making sure there is adequate drainage as Palms will not tolerate standing water.
