Mr. Goldstrike Aucuba is an evergreen that brightens dark shade gardens with it’s gold splashed leaves. It prefers full shade to some morning sun. Mr. Goldstrike grows to 4 to 6 feet tall and wide. It works well to contrast against green trees that are shading the area. You can plant it with Astilbe, Hinoki Cypress or hollies. It works well to provide year round color in shade gardens. Where it is hard to find flowering plants that enjoy a lot of shade.

Tropical Lightning Climbing Rose is a striped rose with orange and cream. It grows to 10 to 12 feet tall and wide. Like other climbing roses it can be a stand alone shrub or trained on a trellis. This variety continues flowering from spring into late fall. Tropical Lighting works as a backdrop to other roses or perennials with yellow or white blooms. You can use this a focal point or as a privacy block that flowers most of the growing season.

The Blizzard Mockorange blooms lots of fragrant white flowers in late spring. It reaches about 4 to 6 feet tall and wide. It works well with summer blooming perennials to lengthen out seasonal interest. You can also plant it near areas where the breeze can waft the fragrance to nice sitting spots. Some light pruning keeps it’s shape after it blooms. Every couple of years a hard pruning is a good idea of taking out older stems to keep the plant fuller and blooming lots.

Amber Jubilee Ninebark reaches about 5 to 6 feet tall and wide. It’s greatest attribute is the multi colored foliage. The new growth is orange red and matures to the yellow you see in the photo. It does bloom white flowers like other Ninebarks that attract butterflies in May. Put this in front of green conifers like arborvitae for a great contrast. Can be used as a colorful hedge too. Easy to maintain with a light annual pruning.

Both of these plants do well in full sun!

Plants of the Week for April 30th

Lavender Twist Redbud is a small weeping tree that can handle full sun to part shade.  These trees flower pink in April along their branches.  They grow to about 8 feet tall and wide, but can be kept smaller with trimming.  After they flower green, heart shaped leaves emerge to cover the tree.  Lavender Twist Redbud works well where Japanese Maples don’t like to grow as a focal point surrounded by perennials and small shrubs.

Purple Fountain Grass is great for height in flower pots as well as in the garden.  Though it doesn’t last through our winters; the show is worth it to replant every year.  They rapidly grow to about 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide.  Purple Fountain Grass prefers full sun and plays well with millionbells, petunias, allysums or bidens for flower pots.
