    Abelia mosanensis 'SMNAMDS'
    Here is just the shrub to kick-start your heart - and your garden! ‘Sweet Emotion’ grows where no Abelia could grow before - here in Canadian zone 5. It offers the most fragrant - white and pink spring blooms that just fill the air with the scent of jasmine.

    Sister Golden Hair Broom

    Cytisus scoparius 'SMSCGF'
    Brooms are very showy plants that bloom with cascading weeping branches highlighted with bright yellow flowers. What separates THIS Scotch Broom from others are the extra large and brilliant flowers that just cover it! Elegant, weeping branches give it a mounded habit that only sizes to 12-18 inches tall and wide. It will thriveg in full sun and dry conditions, and its flower show will last for up to a month! Tiny leaves cover the green stems once the blooms fall, providing a unique textural effect. It's an excellent plant for dry sunny slopes.

    Tiny Tower Illuminati Mock Orange

    Philadelphus coronarius 'SMNPVG'
    This new twist on an old-fashioned favourite was selected for its narrow, columnar habit and unique four-sided ‘tower’ effect. Growing 3-4 ft. tall in sun or part shade, it will only spread 18-24” wide. Hundreds of double white, fragrant flowers nestle within dark green foliage in early summer along the dramatically upright branches. Definitely a winner for any garden!

    Magical Treasure Coralberry

    Symphoricarpos x doorenbosi 'Kolmatrea'
    Perfect for smaller spaces, this hardy, easy-to-grow shrub bears arching stems on a tight, rounded plant. Growing only 3 ft. tall and wide in sun or part shade, each branch is loaded with small pink flowers in spring that develop striking fruit that are very showy through the fall – developing a true  'Wow' factor. It bursts with lush, pure pink, decorative berries! Both deer and rabbit resistant!

    Temple of Bloom Seven Sons Plant

    Heptacodium miconioides 'SMNHMRF'
    Wow! This unusual and extremely beautiful specimen plant from Proven Winners is covered with white blooms in late August to September before developing cherry red bracts more striking than other Seven Sons! An easy plant to grow, it prefers moist, yet well-drained soil and it grows only 6 to 10 ft. tall and wide in sun or part shade. Great colour in the late summer/fall garden, this incredible variety is a magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds as well!

    Princess Diana Hydrangea

    Hydrangea macrophylla 'Princess Diana'
    This exquisite new hydrangea with amazing star shaped blossoms sets the summer scene beautifully, producing large globes of bright, vivid pink double flowers that repeat  from summer to early autumn. Blooming on both old and new wood, it can grow 3-1/2 ft. tall and wide, preferring well-drained soil, with the most intense pink coming with soils amended with a little lime.

    This hardy charmer allows everyone to have a large bloomed hydrangea in their garden!

Tolerant of sun or part shade, it is ideal for borders, masses and specimen planting.

    Betsy Ross Lilac

    Syringa x oblata 'Betsy Ross'
    Specifically bred to be a hardier, more disease tolerant lilac variety, this lilac bears large clusters of fragrant white flowers that completely cover this multi-stemmed, rounded plant. As an added bonus, these blossoms come earlier than most lilacs in the landscape letting you enjoy the heady fragrance even sooner. Best in full sun, this variety could grow to 10 ft. tall and over 8 ft. wide and is ideal for screening.

    Scentara Double Blue Lilac

    Syringa x hyacinthiflora 'SMNSHBBL'
    The fragrance of this newest member of the lilac family will knock your socks off! Bearing cool purple blooms that take on a blue tone in the spring sunshine, each one is full of petals for a delicate seashell-like effect. Among the first lilacs to bloom, this heavy bloomer exhibits excellent disease resistance and has an appealing shape that will look right at home in your garden. Growing 6-8 ft. tall and wide in full sun, it requires well drained soil.

    Spice Bush

    Lindera bezoin
    Spicebush is a fast-growing native shrub, useful in moist, shady places. A small amount of sun yields a bush with better form, and it's been known to grow to become a 5 to 8 foot tall shrub that is slightly wider than tall. It is the preferred food for spicebush swallowtail butterfly larvae. Known as the “forsythia of the wilds” because its early spring flowering gives a subtle yellow tinge to the many lowland woods where it is commonly found. While rather a plain bush in summer, the leaves turn a colourful golden-yellow in fall.

    Rainbow Fizz Spirea

    Spirea japonica 'Rainbow Fizz'
    Add a ‘fizz’ to your garden with this hardy new spirea and its sheer rainbow of colours from spring through to late fall! Foliage emerges copper, changes to yellow with red tips in spring, and then ends copper-red. The fun doesn’t stop there; the candy-like flower buds start red and finish with a whimsical pink bloom! Compact and easy to grow, it matures to 3-4 ft. tall and wide in sun or part sun. Ideal for mixed borders!

    Everlasting Crimson Hydrangea

    Hydrangea macrophylla 'Everlasting Crimson'
    From The Netherlands, this 'tough-as-nails' mop-head hydrangea was bred for the cut flower market. Only 3-4 ft. tall and wide, it forms tough stems and shiny dark-green leathery foliage, with the longest lasting flower heads ever developed! Requiring sun to part shade, early blooms are mixed shades of green with shades that turn to strong crimson, and then fade to deep red. A chameleon plant for many garden uses!

    Wabi Sabi Doublefile Viburnum

    Viburnum plicatum var. tomentosum 'SMVPTFD'
    This space saving dwarf version of the popular doublefile viburnum will take your breath away! Growing low and wide, every branch bears large, pure white lace-cap flowers in late spring and is perfect for the front of beds, planting atop walls, or lining walkways. Tolerant of shade or sun, it will grow only 2-3 ft. high, but can spread 3-4 ft. wide.

    Korean Spice Baby Viburnum

    Viburnum carlesii 'SMVCB'
    With its light pinkish-white, fragrant spring bloom clusters and neat, compact habit, this slow growing 'Baby' is a great addition for your garden! Hardier than other small viburnum varieties, it is ideal for smaller gardens, providing all of the spicy, intoxicating spring fragrance and seasonal colour in a petite package. Preferring moist, well-drained soil, it could grow 3-1/2 to 5 ft. tall and wide in sun or part shade.

    My Monet Purple Effect

    Weigela florida 'Verweig8'
    This slow growing dwarf plant creates a big impression!
