    Blue Shadow Fothergilla

    Fothergilla major 'Blue Shadow'

    French Cabaret Rose of Sharon

    Hibiscus syriacus 'Mindour1'

Relatively seedless, it should be pruned in early spring for increased bloom show.

    Jolene Jolene Beauty Bush

    Kolkwitzia amabilis 'SMNKADTF'
    Beauty Bush is a well named plant, as it has graced gardens since the beginning of the 19th century.  But it's vigour and size precluded it's use from many gardens. Not anymore!
