     Shrubs - Gallery 5 
    Western Lights Azalea

    This hardy deciduous azalea has fresh pink blossoms with a dark pink blotch, medium green leaves that turn a decent red fall colour, and a moderate growth rate. It blooms in mid to late spring and will grow to 3 feet tall by 3 to 4 feet wide in full sun or partial shade. It grows best in an acidic soil (which is easily done) and is very winter hardy too.

    Berberis thunbergia 'Concorde' 
    This new barberry is one of the smallest purple-leaf barberries available, growing into a small, tight and compact mound. It is ideal for colour accent use in the garden or mass planting, or even as an edging. The new growth is red, providing an interesting color contrast to the deep purple mature leaves that turn an outstanding scarlet in the fall. Tiny clusters of yellow flowers that hang below the branches appear in mid-spring, and once pollinated they form tiny scarlet drupes (hard fruit) that are displayed into the late fall.  It grows to 18 inches tall by approximately 24 inches wide in full sun to light shade.

    Vanilla Spice Summersweet

    Clethra alnifolia 'Caleb'
    This new Summersweet from Proven Winners is a standout with bottle brush pure white flowers that are TWICE the size of other summersweets. Summersweets bud leaves late in the spring and then grow and bloom in mid to late summer. They have a sweet fragrance as well as beautiful deep glossy green foliage that turn a yellow fall colour, and is also deer resistant and a butterfly attractor too.  Vanilla Spice grows to 6 ft. tall in sun to partial shade.

    Eternal Fragrance Daphne

    Daphne x transatlantica 'BLAFRA'
    A compact growing shrub that has white flowers that are powerfully fragrant that have a bit of a blush pink colouring after cool nights. It gets its name because after its initial spring blooming in May, it blooms irregularly throughout the summer and fall. It will grow compactly to 3' tall and the same wide in full sun or light shade. It is not tolerant of wet areas.

    Quick Silver Russian Olive

    Elaeagnus angustifolia 'Quick Silver'
    This new strain of Russian Olive is a vigorous growing, pyramidal, spiny shrub or small tree that has a spreading habit with open branches and silvery shoots. The dense silver leaves catch the light, looking very bright in sunshine - far more so than its predecessor. In summer silvery buds produce small, yellowish-white, four-petalled flowers. The flowers are very sweetly scented and are followed by olive-like yellow fruits in the autumn. It grows to approximately 20' tall and wide.  ** Currently unavailable.

    Fothergilla

    Fothergilla gardenii 'Mount Airey'
    This versatile shrub has a striking show of unusual, honey scented bottlebrush blossoms in spring before the leaves start to emerge. The blossoms last for several weeks as the leathery blue-green leaves fill in. It grows to 3 feet tall and wide and has an impressive fall show as these leaves turn many shades of yellow, orange and red. Grows best in full sun to partial shade.

    Bombshell Hydrangea

    Hydrangea panic. 'Bombshell'
    This dwarf plant explodes with blossoms, and is a significant breakthrough and improvement over any other PeeGee type hydrangea!  It is incredibly well branched and will bloom from summer until frost, with little to no pruning required to keep the plant compact and tidy. It grows only 3 feet tall by 4 feet wide and can be grown in either sun or shade. 

    Little Lime Hydrangea

    Hydrangea panic. 'Little Lime'
    This new introduction from Proven Winners produces bright cone-shaped lime green flowers, later turning into pink, from mid-summer to frost. Like its larger cousin, Limelight Hydrangea, it is also very drought tolerant and it's 3 to 5 ft size means it is suited for many more gardens. The blossoms are large and stand up well to heavy rain, and will make for a stunning display as a hedge or in the border in either sun or shade.

    Little Devil Dwarf Ninebark

    Physocarpus opulifolius 'Donna May'
    This is the very first truly dwarf purple ninebark, growing a mere 3 to 4 feet tall. It offers deep purple leaves all season, great hardiness, small button pink-white blossoms in late spring, and requires little pruning to maintain its great appearance. ** Special order

    Prairie Petit Lilac

    Syringa vulgaris 'Prairie Petite'
    Most dwarf lilacs tend to have more halo-like flower clusters. Prairie Petit has upright clusters of pretty mauve purple blossoms on a compact growing plant of approximately 5 ft. tall by 5 ft. wide. A very hardy shrub, it grows best in full sun to light shade, and is intolerant of sitting areas that stay wet for long periods.

    Wonderblue Lilac

    Syringa vulgaris 'Wonderblue'
    This introduction by the late Father John Fiala, renowned lilac hybridizer, features beautiful flower trusses comprised of lavender-pink buds opening into clusters of single sky-blue flowers. The 4 to 5 foot rounded plants are wonderfully full and compact, lending them useful in smaller areas. Flowers appear in June, and it performs best if planted in full sun.
