Plants of the Week for July 6th
E.H. Wilson Mimosa (Silk Tree) is one of the most cold hardy mimosas offered on the market. We have been happy with the variety for a number of years and we enjoy the dark pink blooms in the summer. E.H. Wilson reaches 30 feet tall and 30 feet wide. If prefers full sun. Fun characteristic is the leaves fold up when the plant is dry. It enjoys our hot summers but sometimes in harsh winters can take some damage. It gives a tropical look to the yard.
Glowing Embers Hydrangea is a shade loving Hydrangea that flowers in July. It is an old wood bloomer so it only blooms once but has a sharp dark pink color and large blooms. It reaches 3 to 5 feet tall and wide. Prefers to be shaded from noon to 5 pm. Glowing Embers doesn't need any soil pH adjustments in the Tri-Cities to keep it's color. This is one of my favorite Hydrangeas.
