Plants of the Week of August 17th, 2018

IMG_7568.JPG

This week is a Rose of Sharon twofer.  It's Rose of Sharon season and pollinators love them as you can see with the huge bumble bee. Rose of Sharons reach about 10 to 12 feet tall and 6 feet wide.  They prefer to be planted in full sun but can tolerate morning shade.  They are great for focal points or privacy screens. They flower from July to September, while it's hot out.

Lavender Chiffon is a double lavender variety that has a full petal count.  It's one of the fullest of the double bloomers.  A vigorous grower that wants to flower when it's hot out. 

Blue Chiffon is a blue lavender semi-double bloom.  Not quite as full as the Lavender Chiffon but the color is a good blue for July gardens to celebrate the Fourth of July. 

Plants of the Week for May 11th

This week was hard to pick out three plants.  Itoh Peonies are in full bloom, salvia are all happy and so were the Matrix lilies. These all receive honorable mention this week.

Our first plant is another one from my yard the Onadaga Viburnum, it has red new growth and in early May white lace cap blooms that resemble a Hydrangea.  Except it lives in full to partial sun.  It's as tough as a Snowball Viburnum.  It grows to 10 to 12 feet tall and 5 to 7 feet wall.  It can be a great privacy hedge mixed with Rose of Sharon, Lilacs or even Arborvitae.

The Klondike Exbury Azalea is part of the deciduous azalea group where they lose their foliage in the fall with beautiful fall color.  The orange rhododendron-like flowers are wonderful this time of year.  Klondike gets 4 to 6 feet tall and wide.  They do best with filtered shade at 3 to 5 pm in summer.  

Wine and Roses Weigela is a chocolate or bronze foliage that flowers magenta pink blooms that attract hummingbirds and butterflies in May. It reaches 4 to 6 feet tall and wide.  For best foliage color, plant in full sun but it will take some shade. Responds well to pruning if it gets raggedy.   Great contrast to blue grey or green leafed plants.   

 

Plant of the Week of April 20th

Hoki and High Noon are both Tree Peonies.  These are shrub type peonies that do not need staking or caging.  You also don't cut them to the ground at the end of the growing season either.  Tree Peonies are a woody shrubs that reaches about 6 ft tall.  Slow growing and does well in full sun to part sun conditions. Tree peonies bloom before garden peonies, in mid to late April. 

Headliner Blueberry Swirl Petunia is a mounding type petunia with a great bicolor bloom of purple and white.  Heat loving and flowers from spring into fall.  Reaches 10" tall and spreads to 24 to 30 inches wide.  Easily filling a bed or pot with a great color show.  Does not need deadheading to keep flowering. Feed and water regularly to keep happy. 

Plant of the Week of April 13th

Champagne Bubbles Poppy is a mixture of colors for a plant that likes well drained soil.  They love full to partial sun.  To encourage more flowers remove spent flowers as they fade. Also allow the poppies to reseed themselves to extend their life.

Black Mamba Petunia is a spreading petunia that doens't need deadheading and offers a rich purple black color.  Reminds me of black felt. Great to contrast white flowers or sweet potato vines. Like other petunias they prefer full to partial sun. Routine fertilizing is best for petunias. 

Orange Storm Quince is a thorn less, fruitless Quince that offers coral orange flowers to welcome spring!  The color is striking that runs along the branches. They reach 5 to 6 feet tall and wide. They prefer full to partial sun. Let Orange Storm be a backdrop to perennials or smaller shrubs.
