    Bailey Redtwig Dogwood

    Cornus sericea 'Baileyi'
    This excellent red stem dogwood is from a renowned North American breeder. It grows quickly to 8 to 10 feet tall and wide with deep green foliage that turns purple red in the fall. Dogwood fruit are beloved by birds, and this one has porcelain blue fruit in late summer. Dogwood stems become more richly red through the autumn with an excellent show above the snow all winter long.  It grows best in full sun, but is tolerant of shade as well.

    Velveteeny Smoke Bush

    Cotinus coggygria 'Velveteeny'
    'Velveteeny' offers the same silky smooth, deep burgundy foliage with large feathery plumes of dove gray to pink blooms as it's big brother 'Royal Purple' Smoke Bush, but in a petite, dwarf form. Maturing at a mere 4' tall, 'Velveteeny' is as versatile as it is exquisite, with its compact, rounded shape and brilliant colour. It grows best in full sun to light shade in the ground.

    Winecraft Black Smoke Bush

    Cotinus coggygria 'NCCO1'
    A first for Proven Winners, Winecraft Black is a colour parade all season long. In spring, round leaves emerge rich purple but as summer's heat comes on, they turn a deep near-black tone and finally light up the garden in an array of reds and oranges in the fall. In early summer, large, soft panicles of bloom appear that become the misty "smoke" that smoke bushes are known for. However, unlike older smokebushes, it's natural rounded, dwarf habit means that every landscape has room one. Grows best in full sun.

    Firefly Nightglow Southern Bush Honeysuckle

    Diervilla splendens 'El Madrigal'
    Bright yellow flower clusters in spring and summer contrast with dark foliage that holds its color from first flush to frost. The foliage begins dark red and stays that way through summer, becoming a more intense red during the fall. Ideal for mixed beds and borders, it requires full sun and average soil. More compact than other cultivars, this upright, mounding variety grows only 2-3 ft. tall and wide.

    Purple Pillar Rose of Sharon

    Hibiscus syriacus 'Gandini Santiago'
    Most Rose of Sharons become fairly wide plants as they mature. Purple Pillar is a first and totally new Rose of Sharon that naturally grows as a narrow column instead. There might be room for this in almost any garden, as it grows to just 2-3' wide by as much as 10 or more feet tall! In late summer each stem is packed with purple blooms with reddish-purple centres. It grows best in full sun and while it might make for an excellent hedge or screening plant, it is best not to site this plant where it might be wet a lot of the time.

    Hydrangea Invincibelle Ruby

    Hydrangea arborescens 'NCHA3'
    This award winning hydrangea from Proven Winners has been bred from the same hardy Annabelle stock, but with dark burgundy red flower budsthat open to a two-toned combination of bright ruby red and silvery pink. The foliage is extra dark and the stems are stronger as well, making this new hydrangea a gem in any garden. It is a strong rebloomer that flowers on the new growth, so it is sure to bloom every year without fail. Grows to 3 to 4 feet wide tall by roughly the same wide in sun or light shade.

    Hydrangea Lava Lamp Moonrock

    Hydrangea paniculata 'Kolmakilima'
    This blossoms on this new hydrangea are really something to behold. Creamy blooms open with an intense lime-green centre that is quite striking - and even a bit 'funky' looking. It gets it's name from the texture of the blossom looking a bit like the surface of the moon. The blossoms are huge and very reliable, as it is a tough plant too.  It grows 6 to 8 feet tall by about the same wide in full sun to partial shade. Blossoms can be used for cuts, or left to mature and turn lightly pink in the fall. ** Special order

    Jetstream Oakleaf Hydrangea

    Hydrangea quercifolia 'PIIHQ-I'
    Jetstream is a quantum leap in oakleaf hydrangea introductions with a dense, compact, non-flopping habit. The lustrous dark green foliage is resistant to leaf spot and turns a fantastic orange-red in autumn. Flowers, held high on strong stems, are a beautiful white aging to pink. Jetstream is a classic native flowering shrub for the garden, grouping and massing. Exfoliating tawny-brown bark adds winter interest, as do the dried flower heads. Grows 5 to 6 feet high by 4 to 5 feet wide in full sun.

    Magical Triumph St. John's Wort

    Hypericum inodorum 'Magical Triumph'
    This new plant has the most beautifully coloured berries that form from late summer into the fall. These contrast with the deep green foliage, and the entire branch and berries can also be used as a lovely addition to inside arrangements or bouquets. A compact plant that will grow to 3 feet tall by the same wide - it does best when planted with protection from prevailing winter winds in full sun to light shade.

    Bella Bellisima Cinquefoil

    Potentila fruticosa 'Hachliss'
    Cinquefoils (also known as Potentillas) have come a long way from what you may have seen before. Like fine Italian wine, the flowers of Bella Bellissima only get better with age. An abundance of deep pink blooms are found from top to bottom of this gorgeous shrub. Very cold-hardy and compact, it makes an excellent choice for many landscapes because it’s easy to grow, blooms from June until frost with longer-lasting blooms and requires very little maintenance. It grows to 3 feet tall by the same wide in full sun to partial shade.

    Happy Face Pink Paradise Cinquefoil

    Potentilla fruticosa 'Kupinpa'
    The folks at Proven Winners have done it again - here is a 'better' pink cinquefoil (also known as potentilla) for northern gardens. The clear pink, semi-doubled flowers hold their colour longer than other pink potentillas, although they may still fade under intense heat. This is an excellent choice for cooler climate gardeners who want low-maintenance flowers all summer long, as the flowers keep coming right until frost. Grows 2 to 3 feet tall by the same wide in full sun.

    Magical Midnight Glow St. John's Wort

    Potentilla fruticosa 'White Lady'
    Extra large, pure white flowers adorn this plant from spring to late summer, and Happy Face White Cinquefoil (also known as Potentilla) has a dense habit with dark green foliage too. A distinct improveent over older varieties, it is an excellent plant for mass plantings and difficult to grow areas where unbroken blossoms from June until frost are needed. It grows 2 to 3 feet high by the same wide in full sun to light shade. 

    Black Tower Elder

    Sambucus nigra 'Eiffel 1'
    A deep purple coloured plant that grows in a narrow columnar form? You betcha! This new shrub has two-toned pink flowers that bloom in summer followed by purple berries in the fall. New foliage is celery green maturing to a dark purple-black. A tall upright variety quickly reaching 6 to 8 feet tall by only 3 to 4 feet wide. Great for narrow spaces, it grows best in full sun.

    Tiny Wine Gold Ninebark

    Spirea japonica 'NCSX1'
    You have to see it to believe it - candy apple red foliage starts the show in spring. As the season progresses, the foliage transforms to pineapple yellow that stays bright. Dark purple blooms appear in late spring, making this the most eye-poppingly colourful spirea you have ever seen. It grows 1.5' to 2.5' tall by 2.5' to 3' wide in full sun to light shade. 

    Magical Avalanche Snowberry

    Symphoricarpus x doorenbosi 'Kolmava'
    Perfect for smaller spaces, this hardy, easy-to-grow shrub bears arching stems on a tight, rounded plant. Growing only 3-4 ft. tall and round in full sun, each branch is loaded with small white flowers in early summer. However, it is the fall 'Wow' factor that will make you choose this beauty…when it is bursting with pure white, decorative berries! It is also both deer and rabbit resistant.

    Congo French Hybrid Lilac

    Syringa vulgaris 'Congo'
    This heirloom variety (from the 1890s) bears beautiful deep wine-red flowers that are as fragrant as they are pretty. 'Congo' is a classic. It's almost always listed in the top five or 10 best by lilac aficionados, with the rich dark colours of the plant's intense bright burgundy buds fading slowly to magenta with a light, pleasant, lasting fragrance. It grows 8 to 10 feet tall by 6 to 7 feet wide in full sun.

    Crimson Kisses Weigela

    Weigela x 'Slingco 1'
    This reblooming beauty will make you feel loved all summer long as you enjoy the extended flowering time it offers. Crimson Kisses blooms like crazy - an abundance of bright red bell-shaped flowers, and has a compact form that keeps it well behaved in your landscape. It’s a product of the top Weigela breeding program in the world, and is an exceptional performer and a noted improvement to traditional weigelas.

    Date Night Strobe Weigela

    Weigela x 'WOF/R'
    If you blink, you may miss one of the many flashy colours of this weigela has to offer.
