Edibles

Jelly Bean Blueberry --  They are a very sweet berry and tastes like jelly. It's a dwarf blueberry that is only two feet by two feet.

Peach Sorbet Blueberry -- Wonderful berries, but it actually gets its name for its foliage color in fall. It's a dwarf blueberry that can be grown in the garden or even in a pot
    
Raspberry Shortcake Raspberry -- Dwarf raspberry that doesn't need a large fence or trellis like most raspberries

Thornless
    
Mighty 'Matoes -- This is the second year the Mighty Mato has been available and its popularity is growing. It's a grafted tomato so you get a great tomato that is stronger and produces more tomatoes.

Lemon Slice Calibrachoa – This trumpet shaped flower have yellow and white stripes
