Gardening in small spaces require plants for small spaces, The 2018 Landscape Plant of the Year- SPILLED WINE® Weigela maybe the perfect choice for you. Bright pink spring flowers with additional interest coming from is deep plum/black foliage all season long. Perfect for borders, and container gardens alike.
2018 Perennial of the year is..PRIMO™ Black Pearl Heuchera! The deep black foliage is amazing, especially when mixed with other perennials to show off its color.
Introducing the 2018 Annual of The Year…. Supertunia® Bordeaux™ ! One of my favorite annuals to use in Hanging baskets and in container combinations. Easy to care for and mixes well with other annuals to create stunning combinations.
Gardening brings out all kinds of emotions and memories, one shrub that is sure to create a pleasant memory for you is Abelia Sweet Emotion™. Walking through the greenhouse this past spring there was this amazing scent that was drawing me in. Once I located the plant offering that spicy sweet scent I was hooked. Sweet Emotion™ starts off in the spring with bright red buds that burst open in late May resulting in creamy white flowers that are arranged in a nice cluster.
I love to add a new “Friend” to my butterfly garden each year. Sometimes it may be two or three. This year I added Bloomerang® ‘Pink Perfume’ Lilac. I heard that the blooms were so fragrant that I had to give it a try. Bloomerang® ‘Pink Perfume’ Lilac did not disappoint. This shrub is so compact in size, 4-5 feet, but really performs like the big guys. ‘Pink Perfume’ begins blooming in May with an abundance of gorgeous pink blooms. By mid-June the first round of flowers begin to fade. At this time you may trim the spent blooms. This will encourage more abundant flowers as it reblooms in late-July. ‘Pink Perfume’ will continue blooming through the summer. The lilac bush also makes for a great hedge or boarder for you garden. For those of you that love the wildlife, all the Syringa Bloomerang® series are Deer resistant.
