An extremely dense, compact form of B. 'Crimson Pygmy' which requires essentially no pruning. Bright crimson new growth is followed by rich burgundy to purple foliage. Only propagated from cultured stock blocks to ensure a true strain. Drought tolerant once established.
Slow growing. Prefers well drained or sandy soil. Can survive in hot, dry locations and short periods of drought once established. Tolerates most soils but will not do well in wet or overly moist locations. Good for foundation plantings. Place in full sun for best color.
Golden yellow leaves on this upright grower take on a nice fall color. Does best when planted in areas of light shade where the leaves are protected from fading or burning in late summer.
This green barberry is dense and compact. Small pink flowers followed by red berries that persist into winter.
New shoots emerge as a rose pink mottled with bronzish to purple red splotches. Tiny yellow flowers are hidden among the foliage. Small bead-like berries of bright red hang well into winter. The berries are attractive to birds. Can take well to pruning and provide an attractive hedge. Plant in full sun for best color.
The wings are much more pronounced on this variety and is more mounded than upright. Tolerates heavy pruning and can be used as a hedge or screen or used as an accent. Will tolerate shade but will display better red fall color in full sun. Shade will produce less color impact. Not fussy to soil type.
Fragrant white flowers in May followed by clusters of large edible dark purple-black berries which persist through the season. Dark glossy green leaves which will later provide a rich fall color. Does well in full sun to part shade and is tolerant of wet, swampy or dry soils, acid or slightly alkaline. Will be lankier in shade, but will still be a nice shrub. Berries are rather bitter, but will be more desirable for eating after several hard freezes. Little to no suckering. Attracts birds.
Good hedge plant. Lustrous summer leaves, with small pink flowers followed by small black fruit in late summer and autumn. Prefers moist well drained soil, but can tolerate dryness and alkaline soils.
A compact selection of the ever-popular 'baileyi' red stem dogwood. Dark red winter stems, a non-suckering habit and compact form make this a beautiful addition to any garden.
Firedance is similar to 'Isanti' yet has a much more compact, uniform habit. Our trials also show that Firedance has less foliar problems than the species. White spring flowers are replaced with white berries attractive to birds. Red-purple fall color. Tolerant of wet conditions and suitable for rain gardens.
Slow dense growing shrub. Fine red-twigged branches. White flowers and white fruit. Pruning stems close to the ground every 2-3 yrs will help to produce brighter red branches and more pleasing shape. Prefers moist, organically rich soils but is tolerant of wide range of soils, including swampy or boggy sites. Grows in sun to part shade. Rapid growth
Compact selection, with multi stemmed, variegated white and green foliage on a shrub. Same growing characteristics as other dogwoods. Small blue-white fruits are attractive to birds.
Clusters of white flat-topped flowers are followed with berries that are pale with a touch of blue. Can grow in wet areas or even swampy areas. Can be pruned back in spring to rejuvenate or trim out one third of old branches to produce the new wood which becomes a brighter red. The bright red twigs provide great winter interest. Attracts birds.
An excellent red stem dogwood that provides beautiful color in winter. Porcelain-blue fruits. Shade tolerant. Very adaptable.
Outstanding flower color in spring with bud hardiness that will produce blooms right to the tip of branches. Very rapid growth and will have a wild and wiry look the first 3 years. Renewal pruning by cutting all branches close to the ground will create a more compact form and bloom. Pruning may also be done by removing one-third to one-fourth of the older branches right down to the ground. Both types of pruning should only be done after spring bloom. Notable for growing in poor soils. Developed in Canada. Full sun.
Cool Splash is the first variegated diervilla and its bright white stands out dramatically even in shady borders. The cool foliage stays bright and clean right up until the first frost. Bunches of yellow blossoms adorn the plant in June and July. Easy-to-grow in a variety of soils, Cool Splash is a densely branched shrub that forms underground suckers, developing colonies over time. Use in woodland settings or mass plantings for a spectacular effect.
Glossy foliage is generally free from disease and insect problems. Small yellow flowers appear in early summer to late summer. Prefers moist and well drained soil. May be pruned in early spring to conform shape, or futher for rejuvenation.
White flowers appear in huge symmetrical rounded heads which typically grow 8-12" across. Flowers may be small the first year but once established will provide larger blooms. Rapid grower. Blooms mid-summer. Pruning shrub back to approximately 9" in spring can produce more compact form and more blooms. Harsh winters may cause plant to die back to the ground, but new wood will produce a new season of bloom. Prefers shade to part shade. Can tolerate full sun if grown with constant moisture. Intolerant of drought. Rarely if never fed by Japanese beetles.
Hydrangea 'Bounty' has white, mostly sterile flowers that are smaller than 'Annabelle'. Flower heads are displayed on strong, sturdy stems and are less likely to flop after rain. Dark green foliage contrasts well with the white blooms. Reliably blooms on the new growth of the season.
Blooms in July and August. Very showy, large, conical double white flowers that change to pink-bronze towards autumn. A more compact form of the Pee Gee hydrangea. Prefers full to partial sun. Rarely to never fed by Japanese beetles.
Flowers will grow up to 8" in diameter. Blooms will be blue in acidic soil and pink in alkaline. May even display a range of color in between. Blooms on new wood or old wood. Plant in an area with morning sun and afternoon shade. Needs moist, organic and well drained soil. Provide mulch to keep the soil moist and cool. Shield from drying winds.
Like all plants in the Endless Summer Collection, Twist-n-Shout produces abundant blooms on both old and new wood all summer long. Lacy, deep-pink centers are surrounded by gorgeous blossoms of pink or periwinkle blue, depending on soil type. Sturdy red stems and glossy deep green leaves turn red-burgundy in fall to offer year-round interest in the garden. Easy to care for and hardy to zone 4, Twist-n-Shout is an elegant stand-alone specimen, dramatic in combination with other plants, and compact enough for containers.
A superb improvement, with giant blooms that have roughly 4 times as many flowers as 'Annabelle'. The show begins in midsummer with huge round blooms clustered atop sturdy branches that are surrounded by medium green oval leaves. Cut back in spring to promote flowering on summer wood. Fantastic as a specimen shrub or in a border.
'Little Lamb' differs from other paniculata hydrangeas because of its more compact form and the tiny, delicate nature of the blooms. The minute florets are tightly packed into small but full panicles. Prefers moist, well-drained soil in sun or part shade. May be pruned in winter or early spring as it flowers on new wood. Hybridized by Jelena DeBelder of Belgium. Rarely to never fed on by Japanese beetles.
Incredibly large (12" x 8") inflorescences of 'Pink Diamond' open in late summer a cream color, and then, gradually starting at the base of the panicle, turn a rich shade of pink. The flower panicles are held upright and are composed of both sterile and fertile flowers. Selected from a seedling of 'Unique', this beautiful introduction from DeBelders of Belgium tolerates pruning well and is at its best in full sun. Rarely to never fed on by Japanese beetles.
