 Shrubs - Gallery 4 
Mandarin Lights Azalea

From the same family of extra hardy 'Northern Lights' azaleas comes another 'Stunner'! Clusters of tomato-orange flowers cover the ends of the branches before bursting with green leaves that turn purple in fall. To 4-5 ft. tall in sun to part shade, it needs a relatively sheltered site with well drained highly acidic, peaty soil. Applying a layer of mulch too will provide winter root protection.

Kaleidoscope Butterfly Bush

Buddleia bicolor
Treat your butterfly guests to a show with this breakthrough plant Two colours on the same bloom panicle (lavender-pink with golden yellow) are accentuated by soft gray-green foliage. After it's regular spring hard pruning (down to 18" tall), it grows rapidly to 5-6 ft. tall in sun or light shade, and adds casual interest to the shrub border. As with all butterfly bushes, this plant grows best where it is protected in winter.

Ruby Spice Summersweet

Clethra alnifolia 'Ruby Spice'
Also known as Sweet Pepperbush, this hardy shrub features fluffy spikes of sweetly scented deep pink flowers rising above its round glossy green leaves from mid to late summer, finishing with a strong yellow fall color. Tolerant of moist soils and urban pollution, it grows in a tidy, 5 ft. round ?ball' in sun or part shade. As flowers come from the new growth, it shoudl be pruned a bit like hydrangea in early spring.

L'il Kim Dwarf Rose of Sharon

Hibiscus syriacus 'Antong Two'
Say hello to the first true dwarf Rose of Sharon! This unique little shrub grows only 3-4 ft. tall in sun or part shade and is covered with dark green leaves. Wide white flowers with a showy red eye appear in July and will last three days (instead of the more typical one day) before dropping, with flowers continuing right into August. A charming accent for any garden planting! Prune in early spring for increased bloom show.

Cityline Paris Hydrangea

Hydrangea macrophylla 'Paris Rapa'
Tired of floppy, weak stemmed blooming Hydrangeas? This carefree compact charmer has tight sturdy stems and grows only 3-1/2 ft. tall in partial shade. Mildew-resistant glossy dark green leaves set off its long lasting intense pink-red summer flowers that age to green in the fall. Little or no pruning is needed. An ideal choice for accent planting, masses and cut flowers.

Snow Dwarf Mock Orange

Philadelphus x 'Snow Dwarf'
When garden space is limited or you only want a small plant, this Canadian ?gem' with its neat arching habit and compact stature might be the one to choose! Growing only 2-3 ft. tall in sun or part shade, it is covered with fragrant clusters of double white flowers in May-June, then oval-shaped dark green leaves for the remainder of the season. A true little jewel!

Double Bridal Wreath Spirea

Spirea prunifolia
This is the 'true' Bridal Wreath spirea - getting it's name from it's use in bridal bouquets before the turn of the century. It grows in an old-fashioned vase shape and it's striking flower display, hardiness, drought tolerance and easy care habit make it still a favourite for that rustic or heritage 'look'. The double white blooms entirely cover its graceful, arching branches in May to early June. It grows 4-8 ft. tall and wide in full sun and its size can be easily controlled by pruning heavily after blooming. Fall colour is a pleasant yellow as well.

Maiden's Blush Lilac

Syringa hyacinthflora 'Maiden's Blush'
This exceptionally early spring blooming hyacinthflora lilac produces overwhelmingly fragrant pinkish-purple flowers in upright cone-like clusters. Growth is largely upright with medium green leaves that turn yellowish in fall. Easy to grow, it will reach a size of 6 feet or so and does best in the full sun. An extremely hardy plant well suited as a showy screening plant. ** Special order

Bloomerang Lilac

Syringa x 'Penda'
Truly a breakthrough plant, this is the first lilac to produce more than one crop of blossoms in season. The first and biggest show of fragrant, blue-lavender blossoms comes in June, with more blossoms continuing to appear right up until autumn's frosts! A compact growing dwarf, Bloomerang grows 4-5 ft. tall in sun or part shade, making it suited for many a garden. Can be used for cut flowers and also to attract hummingbirds!

Shasta Doublefile Viburnum

Viburnum plicatum 'Shasta'
'Spectacular!' is the only word to describe this plant in the springtime. Broadly spreading horizontal branches are smothered in upright clusters of snowy white flowers, followed by showy red fruit and strong brick red foliage in the autumn. It grows 8 ft. tall and 10 ft. wide in sun or part shade, it is an ideal accent shrub or plant several for a mass, and it attracts birds too.
