Plants of the Week for May 18th 2018
Here are my two picks for this week going that are going to be vibrant flower colors for a long bloom season.
The Crimson Kisses Weigela is a sun loving hummingbird attracting, bush with a great red flower color. It stays compact at 3 feet tall and wide. The foliage is a dark green that contrasts well with red bloom that rebloom throughout the summer. Crimson Kisses is supposed to not get lanky like other weigela varieties, so far it's proving as marketed at staying nice and compact.
The Ignition Purple Salvia is a heat loving plant for hot and dry areas that blooms a rich purple spring through summer. It can have morning shade but prefers all day sun. Reaches 2 feet tall and about 3 feet wide. It's works well with Yarrow, Black Eyed Susan and Russian Sage as a brilliant contrast to their flower colors.
