    Pink Micro Lo and Behold Butterfly Bush

    Buddleia x 'Pink Micro Chip'
    Here is another in this compact new series of Butterfly Bushes! A true dwarf that does not become overgrown and hard to manage, it grows only 18-24 inches tall and wide in full sun. Lots of slightly fragrant spiky pink flowers attract butterflies from early summer until mid September. A real charmer!

    Lunar Eclipse Daphne

    Deutzia x 'Yuki Snowflake' 
    This charming beauty is absolutely loaded with pure white flowers each spring!  Its neat, mounded habit and attractive burgundy fall color make it a great landscape plant for the flower bed in full sun to partial shade. It grows 3 feet tall to about 2.5' wide and it is also deer resistant.

    Firedance Dogwood

    Deutzia x 'Yuki Cherry Blossom'
    This early flowering dwarf pink shrub produces a shower of elegant pink flowers that will create a carpet of colour. It is a gooc choice for mass plantings because of its neat, mounded habit and rich burgundy-purple fall color. It will grow to 2' tall by the same wide in sun or partial shade.

    Hydrangea Abracadabra Star

    Hydrangea mac. 'Horabstra'
    This unusual new plant has big, funky flying saucer lace-cap flowers that emerge pink and white and mature to hot pink atop black satin stems. The distinctive black stems provide interest in the garden before the summer flowers open, and the blossoms are excellent for cutting. A more purple-blue flower colour can be achieved by adding a soil acidifier.  Add aluminum sulfate to the soil to encourage purple-blue flower color. It grows 3 to 4 feet tall by the same wide in full sun to partial shade.  ** Special order

    Zebra Hydrangea

    Hydrangea macrophylla 'Zebra' 
    The glowing white flowerheads and lush green foliage provide a brilliant contrast to the near-black stems of this plant. This new hydrangea is perfect for adding a burst of colour to a partially shaded bed. It grows to 3.5 feet tall by the same wide, and its long flowering period throughout summer and autumn makes it a unique accent to any garden.  ** Special order

    Little Quickfire Hydrangea

    Hydrangea paniculata ''SMHPQLF'
    This is a new dwarf form of the popular Quick Fire hydrangea! Like it's big sister, Little Quickfire is early blooming, flowering about a month before most other hydrangeas. The white flowers transform to pink-red as summer progresses. It grows in sun to partial shade, and its small size of 3 to 5 feet tall and wide means it will fit easily into any landscape.

    Silver Dollar Hydrangea

    Hydrangea paniculata 'Silver Dollar'
    This Royal Horticultural Society Award winner could be considered a smaller and improved cousin to PeeGee hydrangea with similar and just slightly smaller cone shaped blossoms that age pinkish. Strong upright stems ensures a 'non-floppy' look, and it's 4' tall by 5' wide size means it is suitable for smaller gardens. It grows in both sunny or shady locations.  ** Currently unavailable.

    Wedding Gown Hydrangea

    Hydrangea macrophylla 'Dancing Snow'
    This new pure white hydrangea is also sometimes known as 'Dancing Snow' and will evoke memories of a pretty bridal bouquet with its unique clusters of bright white blossoms around a delicate looking center. It looks like it will be a traditional mophead hydrangea as the blossom develops, but then opens as a lacecap. Individual blossoms endure for a very long time, and leaf fall colour is reddish. It grows 2 to 3 feet tall by 3 feet wide in sun or light shade. As with many lacecaps, the blossoms come off the previous year's stems, so putting a rose cover over the plant in winter ensures the largest crop of blossoms.

    Munchkin Oakleaf Hydrangea

    Hydrangea quercifolia 'Little Munchkin'
    An exceptional U.S. National Arboretum introduction. An abundance of large flower clusters, held against dark green, deeply lobed oak-like leaves, is what sets this apart. Robust blooms open white and age to pink, remaining upright even after heavy rain. Foliage turns brilliant mahogany in fall. The compact, dense habit is suited for smaller landscapes. Grows 3 to 4 feet tall by the same width in partial sun/shade. As with all oakleaf hydrangeas in the K-W area, this plant is best suited to protected locations.  ** Special order

    Tahiti Rose of Sharon

    Hibiscus syriacus 'Mineru'
    This striking hardy outdoor hibiscus family member is noted for it's very large semi-double deep pink purple blooms that have a deep red centre and that cover the plant in late summer from July to September. It grows in an upright vase shaped form to about 6 to 8 feet by roughly 5 to 6 feet wide in full sun. The blossoms also attract butterflies.

    Double Play Big Bang Spirea

    Spirea x 'Double Play Big Bang'
    If you've thought you've seen everything about spirea, you are in for a surprise, as this ISN'T your same old Goldflame.  This plant has the largest pink flowers ever seen on a spirea, and the foliage glows orange in the spring. It grows only 2 to 3 feet tall by the same width in a compact form, and requires very little maintenance other than a light trimming to maintain it. It tolerates heavy snow, easily re-grows pruning 'misadventures', and is suitable for any sunny to lightly shaded location. 

    Lemony Lace Elder

    Sambucus racemosa 'SMNSRD4' 
    The distinctive golden, thread-like foliage on this new elder variety looks wonderful in mixed borders or as a high-impact specimen plant. Delicate white blossoms in mid-spring that turn to red fall fruit makes it a good addition to wildlife gardens too. It's a colourful shaggy mound of gold threads with reddish new growth highlights. This, plus a more dense and full appearance, is the benefit of a hard pruning in the spring when the plant is younger. It grows best in sun to partial shade to 5 ft. tall by the same wide. 

    Kilimandjaro Doublefile Viburnum

    Viburnum tomentosum 'Killimanjaro'
    This showy late spring bloomer, 'Kilimanjaro' is an upright, conical, leavy shrub with deeply veined green leaves that turn a reddish-purple in autumn. The blossoms are large, flat, lacecap-like clusters of white flowers that give the plant a 'layered' look that are followed by red fruit maturing to black. The plant is heat tolerant and grows to 8 to 10 feet tall by only 4 to 5 feet wide in full sun or partial shade.  **Currently unavailable.
