Diamond Rouge is another great hydrangea in the line from Bailey Nurseries that offers stunning color for the late summer garden. Flowers start out blooming white and then age to a deep burgundy pink color, lasting for up to 6 weeks of bloom power.
'Diamond Rouge®' has abundant, long lasting flowers on strong stems that start out white and progress to pink, raspberry red and finally wine red. Flowers start blooming in July and take on red coloration earlier in the season than other pink paniculatas.
Magenta outer petals enclose a matching magenta center that has a feathery appearance. Excellent background plant for spring bulbs, or use in perennial or shrub borders. Choice cut flower.
Sensational accent or natural hedge desired for the intense scarlet red fall coloring. Interesting compact, mounded form displays attractive rich green leaves spring through summer. Exceptional when featured in mass, at the foreground of larger conifers or evergreen shrubs. Deciduous.
It's the season for panicle hydrangeas. These can take full sun to part shade and bloom for an amazing period of time. They come in lots of sizes for all different spots in the yard or garden. The blooms can be as big as a child's head!
A real improvement in Euonymus! Its large, round leaves have bright, bold variegation offering far more impact than other, older varieties. The variegation is very stable, and the plant has excellent disease resistance. This multi-functional plant is excellent in mass plantings, borders and containers.
Forming a tidy, round mound, this new barberry has striking chartreuse foliage with an unusual red, almost dotted, pattern around the margin. The fall foliage is orange, yellow and red. The small size and habit make it perfect as an accent plant in foundation plantings.
Brilliant yellow flowers in early spring. Hardiest of all forsythias with bud set at extremely cold temperatures. Fast growing with a semi-arching habit. Best flowering if planted in full sun.
If you are looking for a very hardy small shrub for a hedge, Lodense Privet is perfect. I like the natural look, but it also can be pruned into a variety of shapes, making it perfect for a knot garden or border for an herb garden.
These are Lacecap types of hydrangeas, meaning they have sterile flowers in the middle of the blossom with open flower petals all around the edges. Something a little different for your shady garden.
Current year's growth features outstanding coral-red branches on a multi-stemmed shrub. Yellowish-white flowers are followed by small blue berries. An effective winter accent. Deciduous.
Whether you live in the North or South or have sun or shade, you can grow Persian shield. This delightful tropical shrub has been embraced by gardeners everywhere for its amazing purple foliage that has a decidedly iridescent shine. Its unique color makes Persian shield a stunning specimen plant or a top pick for fun combinations in garden beds, borders, or containers. And because it's not particularly large (Persian shield usually tops out around 3 feet tall and wide), it fits just about anywhere.
