CAN YOU WALK IN?

GROBE'S NURSERY YARD, GREENHOUSE AND STORE
ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC WITH COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

FRIENDS AND VISITORS!  THIS HAS MEANT SOME CHANGES TO THE 'TYPICAL' GARDEN CENTRE EXPERIENCE.
Among these are - Social Distancing, More Sanitization of Frequent Contact Points, Hand Sanitizer For All Who Enter, No Ad Hoc Returns, Online Diagnoses of Issues, Controlled Access and more.  We ask for your patience as we do our best to safely permit access to what is here this season.
What about masks? Our staff use them, and we ask you to observe the NEW Region of Waterloo Bylaw that makes their use mandatory.
As limitations continue to be lifted we will be reviewing/altering our protocols in due course. As of August 18th however, we will continue to err to the side of CAUTION until the full effects of Stage 3 re-opening are more fully known.
We are sorry.. but we continue to ask that no children (13 and younger) come to visit at this time.

 Shrubs - Gallery 3 
Cannon's Double Azalea

This hardy rhododendron variety provides a massive display of multi-layered petals colored peach, pink, and cream in late spring. The foliage is very dark green with red-bronze highlights in the fall before leaf drop. It's small mounding form is excellent for shrub borders. Grows best in sun to light shade, and would benefit from root mulching.

Bottlebrush Buckeye

Aesculus parviflora
This large wide spreading multi-stemmed shrub attracts hummingbirds with its big (up to 24 inch tall) ivory white flower spikes that appear in summer.  It is a relatively slow growing plant that will reach 6 to 10 feet tall by as much as 10 feet wide in full sun, and will not suffer if pruned severely every few years (similar to lilacs). Fall leaf colour is a bright yellow to yellow green.

Miss Ruby Butterfly Bush

Buddleia x 'Miss Ruby'
Miss Ruby is a sweetheart of a plant noted for its compact habit and remarkable vivid, rich pink blooms. The flower color is unlike any other Buddleia. This new butterfly bush has silver leaves, and has a compact growth habit, growing to 4 to 5 feet tall by about the same size in width. It is very well branched which results in lots of beautiful flowers, and is from the same breeder as Lo and Behold Blue Chip.

Hummingbird Summersweet

Clethra alnifolia 'Hummingbird'
This easy to grow compact shrub offers extremely fragrant white bottle brush like flowers which bloom on the new growth for up to 4-6 weeks in mid to late summer. Leaves are a dark emerald green in summer and turn a strong yellow colour in fall. It tolerates moist soils and will grow in both sunny and shady areas (although it grows best in partial shade) to a size of between 2 to 3 feet tall by 4 feet wide.

Arctic Fire Dogwood

Cornus sericea 'Farrow'
A remarkable new dwarf red twig dogwood that is perfectly suited for smaller gardens.  Arctic Fire is an extremely compact selection that is roughly 1/2 the height of larger varieties (it grows to about 3 to 4 feet tall) with twice as many branches. This density of stems results in a winter show of vivid red colour that is unmatched by many older dogwood varieties. Grows best in full sun to partial shade areas, and it will tolerate moist soils too.

Crimson and Gold Quince

Chaenomeles x superba 'Crimson and Gold'
This new dwarf flowering quince is a beautiful addition to the early spring garden. Before 'Crimson & Gold' leafs out you will enjoy an abundance of deep red flowers with yellow centers that local bees will love. In fall, birds are attracted to the fragrant fruit, or you can harvest it yourself, stuff cloves into the flesh, and have a delicately scented potpourri for the house. Grows well in the sun to approximately 3 feet tall.

Sanchoyo Rose of Sharon

Hibiscus syriacus 'Sanchoyo'
Large deep peony-pink hollyhock-like flowers cover this shrub in late July through frost. One of the last shrubs to leaf out in spring, it could grow to 10 feet tall and is just loaded with blooms. It grows best in full sun to part shade in a location where it is somewhat sheltered from harsh winter winds.

Hydrangea Twist and Shout

Hydrangea macrophylla 'PIIHM-I'
The newest in the Endless Summer Hydrangea series, this much anticipated variety is the very first of its kind!  Lacecap hydrangeas have delicate yet showy blossoms, but have always had a problem with blooming reliability. Not anymore!  Twist 'n Shout produces long lasting blossoms throughout the season on both old and new growth, and grows approximately 3 to 5 feet tall and wide. The leaves in the fall turn a nice burgundy too. Best of all, you can change the blossom colour (pink or blue) by simply changing the soil pH!

Beauty Bush

Kolkwitzia amabilis
This large growing shrub produces one of the most spectacular displays in the late spring garden - easily gaining 'ooh-ahh' status in the shrub border. An easy plant to grow, it reliably produces these flowers year after year.  This new variety has even larger blossoms, will make a striking shrub of 8 to 10 feet in size when grown in full sun.  As the plant matures, the bark exhibits a peeling character, much like a birch.
