Shrubs - Gallery 7
Calluna 'Spring Torch'
'Spring Torch' gets its name from the vibrant color of its new growth in spring. The mid-green leaves are tipped in shades of cream, orange, and red. Later in the summer, mauve-pink flower spikes cover the plant and last into the fall. As cold weather sets in, leaves acquire bronze or purple tones, adding further interest. This small, mounding evergreen shrub makes a good groundcover or rock garden plant - and bees just love it.
Masses of bright pink, urn-shaped flowers in spring appear among the bronze-green foliage on this low growing rock garden or ground cover plant. It grows approximately 6 inches tall in full sun to light shade. Very sandy or alkaline soils are not recommended, and it is best planted in south or east exposures.
Pearl bushes are not new, but they are little known. This improved variety is looking to change that. It has showy white 'pearl' shaped flower buds that open in May to cover this compact plant with white blossoms that will also attract butterflies. It grows to 6 feet tall in full sun to light shade and requires one simple pruning right after it is done flowering. A hardy and very easy to grow plant.
Betula pendula 'Trost's Dwarf'
Very different from a typical birch tree, this odd growing plant has a low canopy and is covered with extremely finely cut dark green leaves that turns yellow in autumn. Best used as an accent in the garden, its texture will set it apart from other coarser textured plants. Growing only 4-6 ft. tall and wide in full sun to partial shade, it does well in moist conditions. ** Special order
This is NOT your typical Forsythia. A miniature, compact dwarf plant it bears more flowers per inch to create an outstanding spring display. Bright yellow early spring flowers cover each stem and yet the entire plant is only 18-30 inches tall! It is an ideal plant in a mixed border, it is deer resistant and is adaptable to most conditions. Prune immediately after flowering.
Hibiscus syriacus 'Minspot'
This new rose of sharon belongs to a series of fancy, semi-double Roses of Sharon developed in France and named for tropical islands. The medium pink blooms (which slowly turn a lighter pink) appear in late summer and feature a splash of purplish red in the center. This undemanding, sun-loving shrub reaches 5-8 ft. with a spread of 4-7 ft. It's deer resistant and the exotic blooms will attract hummingbirds, too.
Hydrangea paniculata 'Bobo'
Turn heads with this novel dwarf hydrangea! A delightful hardy plant. it is engulfed by large white flowers held upright on strong stems which lengthen as they bloom through the summer and fall, before finally turning pinkish. Growing only 2-1/2 - 3 ft. tall, it spreads to 3-4 ft. wide in sun or part shade. A showy specimen, it is a striking border plant as well.
Hydrangea serrata 'MAK20'
This hydrangea has improved bud and stem hardiness plus it flowers on new wood as well! Reddish-pink lace-cap flowers are a mass of color in early summer, maturing to intense pink, with new flowers being produced right up until frost. Growing 2-3 ft. tall and 4 ft. wide in sun or part shade, it is ideal alone or in mixed borders. Flowers may shift to blue in acidic soils.
Physocarpus opulifolius 'Jefam'
All hail! This stunning Ninebark from Manitoba is fit for any Queen's Jubilee celebration with distinctly different colored foliage in hues of orange, yellow and gold. Growing 5-6 ft. tall and 4 ft. wide, it requires full sun and is amazingly hardy. In fall, the leaves transform to regal red and royal purple. When mass planted, it creates a beautiful backdrop or is a sharp accent plant as well.
Syringa vulgaris 'Purple Glory'
A delicious fragrance permeates the air surrounding the luxuriant deep purple flowers of this lilac. Individual flowers, the size of a juicy grape, open on full clusters one to two weeks before Common Lilacs to provide a long lasting bloom time. New leaves will emerge in spring with a purple blue blush, and in fall these purple highlights return. Dense foliage fills branches low to the ground making Purple Glory an attractive specimen plant or useful massed in a hedge or screen. Grows to 6 to 8 feet high by 6 feet wide in full sun on well-drained soils. ** Special order
Viburnum x rhytidophylloides 'Redell'
Yes, it's showy, but it's also easy to grow! This compact, rounded, upright variety bears white spring flowers followed by loads of bright red fruit, tightly packed into showy clusters in late summer and fall. It grows to 6 to 8 ft. tall and wide in sun or part shade, is a magnet for butterflies and is an ideal border and specimen plant. The best overall form is to shape the shrub by pruning after flowering.
Weigela florida 'My Monet Sunset'
This slow growing dwarf plant creates a big impression! Covered in attractive gold foliage that turns red in the fall, it grows only 12-18” tall and wide in full sun. Although it occasionally produces soft, rosy pink flowers it is the artistic foliage that makes it highly desirable for planting in the front of beds and borders. ** Special order
Weigela florida 'Bokrasopin'
This new everblooming weigela offers loads of hot pink flowers starting in early June that are followed by waves of blooms until the frost in the fall. No deadheading is required. Super simple to grow, it will grow to 4 to 6 feet tall by the same wide in full sun.
Weigela florida 'Verweig6'
This new everblooming weigela has lipstick red flowers starting to appear in early June that are followed by waves of reblooming blossoms until frost. Deadheading is not needed to keep the plant blooming. Attracts hummingbirds and grows to 4 to 6 feet tall by roughly the same wide in full sun.
