 Shrubs - Gallery 2 
Wolf Eyes Flowering Dogwood

Cornus kousa 'Wolf Eyes'
When you require a small, multi-stemmed shrub for a special location, 'Wolf Eyes' may be the choice to make. Growing 5 ft. tall and wide, it bears grey-green leaves with irregular creamy white margins and abundant white flowers. Foliage turns pink to red in autumn. Although less susceptable to scorch, it does best in filtered shade.

Royal Burgundy Barberry

Berberis thunbergii 'Gentry'
Distinctive deep purple feathery foliage makes this mounding dwarf sized plant a spectacular eyecatcher in the sunny garden!  Slow growing to 24 inches tall and wide, it is great as an accent plant or under planting a specimen shrub or tree. It's small thorns make it wonderful as a compact dense barrier or hedge. 

Roseglow Barberry

Berberis thung. 'Rose Glow'
Distinctive deep rose-red over mottled white and green leaf coloration makes this mounding plant a spectacular knock-out in the spring! Slow growing to 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide in sun, in even has a lovely red fall colour to add to its seasonal appeal. A hardy and durable shrub, it also has small thorns that make it useful as a barrier plant.

Pinky Winky Hydrangea

Hydrangea panic. 'DVP Pinky'
This winning hardy new hydrangea produces giant cone shaped flowers in August thru September providing much needed summer colour for any garden! Even better, the blooms change in colour, beginning pink and darkening to deep red on a 4 ft. tall and 3 ft. wide bush. A great choice for sun or partial shade!

Limelight Hydrangea

Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight'
Cool and refreshing lime green blossoms adorn this new beauty in late summer and right into fall. The bright green blooms hold their bright colour right into autumn when the flowers change to a rich deep pink. The flower can be used as a cutflower either fresh or dried. Grows 6 ft. tall by 4.5 feet wide in partial shade.

Endless Summer Hydrangea

Hydrangea macrophylla 'Bailmer'
Huge pink or blue blooms (depending on soil ph) are borne in great abundance on this plant in the summer.  It grows to 4-5 feet tall and wide in sun or part shade. What makes this a truly exceptional plant is the fact that unlike many other pink or blue hydrangeas of this type, this variety bears flowers on both old and new wood - making it a very reliable flower producing hydrangea.

Coppertina Ninebark

Physocarpus opulifolius 'Mindia'
Attractive copper leaves flush out in the spring on this Diabolo/Dart's Gold cross, mellowing to a rich red colour by the summer. Fast growing to 7 ft. tall, it stays quite compact at only 5 ft. wide. Pinkish white flowers contrast nicely against the dark leaves. Growing best in full sun, it is tolerant of most soils and is extremely hardy.  ** Special order

Black Lace Elder

Sambucus nigra 'Eva'
This unusual and delicate shrub offers Japanese Maple appearance with the durability of an elderberry. Fine purplish leaves are accented by fragrant pink flowers in late spring that attract butterflies. Grows 8 to 10 feet tall in full sun to partial shade.

Sem False Spirea

Sorbaria sorbifolia 'Sem'
This vigorous, compact shrub may surprise you in the spring with its bronze-coloured young leaves that change to dark green as the summer progresses. Growng only 3 ft. tall and 4 ft. wide, it bears white astilbe-like flowers in early summer. Tolerates sun or part shade.

Young Lady Smokebush

Cotinus coggygria 'Young Lady'
This is by far one of the best smoke bushes available. Eye-catching unusual grayish pink "flowerclouds" rise above the green leaves in mid-summer, and continue to be produced and look great on the plant throughout the summer. Vibrant orange fall leaves with reddish highlights makes this a season long wonder. It grows between 5 and 8 ft. tall in full sun (depending on pruning) and it blooms best if pruned back each spring before it leafs out.

Mango Tango Cinquefoil

Potentilla fruticosa 'Mango Tango'
Developed in Manitoba, our new variety is a compact rounded plant bearing distinctive bi-colour flowers that have orange-red centers blending to deep yellow at the outer edges. Growing only 24-30 inches tall and wide, it does best in sun but requires regular deep watering during drought. Ideal for mass planting!

Serviceberry

Amelanchier canadensis
A true four season plant, this multi-stem large accent shrub has white flowers in spring, insignificant small blue berries in summer, orange-red fall leaves in the fall and smooth grey bark in the winter. When planted in sun or part shade it could grow to 20 ft. at 1-2 ft. a year. Adaptable to most soil types, it is a very hardy and problem free plant. Also available as a single stemmed tree.

Grey Dogwood

Cornus racemosa
This vigorous, dense native shrub has distinctive grey bark and red-stemmed white fruit.  Its rounded, upright shape is ideal for screening. It is tolerant to sun or shade and any soil condition, and it will grow quickly to 8 ft or more. An excellent shrub for attracting birds.

Tiger Eyes Cutleaf Sumac

Rhus typhina 'Bailtiger'
Beautiful cut leaves bud out chartreuse green in spring and then turn yellow for summer, with a notable contrast to the pink stems. Grows compactly to 6 feet tall and wide in sun or light shade. Very drought tolerant when established. Branches go up but leaves point down, giving it a very distinctive oriental appearance.  Fall colour is a magnificent combination of yellow, orange and intense scarlet.  Bred in Minnesota. It offers restrained growth (compared to Cutleaf Sumac which grows considerably larger) less nvasive growth habit. Might be the perfect subsitute for the person wanting a Japanese Maple look without the hardiness headaches.

Carol Mackie Burkwood Daphne

Daphne burkwoodii 'Carol Mackie'
Carol Mackie Daphne is a beautiful little shrub with pretty and fragrant pinkish white blossoms in early spring. The leaves have an edge of light yellow and the compact spiky growth habit makes it attractive all year. It grow to about 5 feet wide by 4 feet tall in sun to light shade, and is a deceptively hardy plant. It is best pruned directly after flowering.
