Description: Very large 12” blue or pink (determined by soil acidity) mophead flowers bloom on old and new wood, providing reliable performance in northern climates unlike that of older varieties. These blooms are quite impressive!
Description: This fothergilla species (sometimes commonly called dwarf fothergilla) is native to the southeastern U.S. It is a compact, slow-growing, deciduous shrub with a dense, mounded, upright-spreading habit which typically grows 2-3′ (less frequently to 4′) tall and as wide. Best ornamental features are its fragrant spring flowers, summer foliage and superior fall color. Features terminal, bottlebrush-like spikes (1-2” long) of tiny, fragrant, apetulous, ivory white flowers. Flower color comes from the showy stamens (white filaments and yellowish anthers). Flowers appear in spring, usually before the foliage emerges. Rounded to oblong, leathery, dark green leaves (to 2.5” long) turn varying shades of red, orange and yellow in fall.
Description: ‘Burkwoodii’ is a flowering deciduous shrub that has a rounded form with slender shoots and fan-like leaves. Flowers are dark pink with yellow-edges and present from May to June. Some nurserymen report that this plant is not easily transplanted, while others disagree.
Description: Upright, evergreen shrub with dense, rounded growth habit. Small, dark green leaves hold their color all year. Maintains shape with very little pruning. Spring fertilization is recommended. Soil should be kept moist, but not wet, especially during the growing season. Full sun produces best growth, can tolerate partial shade.
Description: The Kurume hybrid azaleas of Japan owe their parentage to several species of mountain azaleas, predominantly R. sataense with R. kiusianum. Formerly, the Kurume hybrids were grouped under R. obtusum, but modern horticulturists now consider R. obtusum a hybrid and not a separate species. Dense, upright, evergreen shrub with small, 1 1/4 inch long, elliptic, glossy, olive green leaves. The Kurume are prized for showy clusters of small, profuse early to mid spring flowers, 1 to 3 per truss, which literally cover the plant. Best adapted to partial sun. Prune immediately after flowering so you won’t cut off any of next year’s flower buds. Best if not sheared. Beautiful planted in generous, solid-colored drifts along edge of woods.
Description: Maria Derby has a dense, compact habit and double, brilliant red flowers. The Robin Hills are a wonderful group of late-spring blooming azaleas grown for their large, showy, pastel-colored, funnel-shaped flowers and Satsuki Azalea-type form. Hardy down to around 10 to 0 degrees Fahrenheit, these mid-size azaleas are best at the front of the border or in smaller gardens where many azaleas rapidly outgrow their space. Though azaleas have a potentially large list of possible pest and disease problems, they are usually trouble free if planted correctly in proper cultural conditions.
Description: Flower creamy white with irregular deep yellowish-pink edges, hose-in hose, funnel-shaped, 1.5” across. Blooms early midseason to midseason. Leaves obovate, mucronate apex, cuneate base, 1.5” long, slightly hairy. Grows to a height of about 4 ft. in 10 yrs. Hybridized by Yavorsky.
Description: Flower white without markings, widely funnel-shaped, semi-double with 10 frilled lobes, 2.5” across. Inflorescence 2-3 flowered. Blooms late midseason. Leaves broadly elliptic, acute apex, rounded base, 1.5″ long, glossy, yellow-green, retained for 2 years. Upright, rounded habit. Reaches a height of 2 ft. in 10 yrs. Hybridized by Shammarello.
Description: Here’s a great azalea for gardeners who have had enough of pinks or purples and would like a glorious rose-salmon flower. The flowers are exceptionally large — 3.5” –, open-faced with wavy lobes, and late blooming. Gillie should reach 22 x 21” in 15 years. A Robin Hill hybrid with the flower characteristics of the Japanese Satsuki azaleas, Gillie is more hardy and dependable. Considered hardy in the range of 0 to +10F.
Description: The biggest blooms of almost any Azalea. 3.5 inch, white to pink, wavy blossoms. Flowers in spring and fall. Plus it flowers heavy on the sides as well as the top, so it looks like a big colorful mound. Conversation Piece is a smaller Azalea so it can be used as a low hedge, groundcover or backdrop for annuals and perennials. It’s an old fashioned heirloom plant that is very hardy. It tolerates extreme cold snaps well. Just spread out plenty of mulch.
Description: The variegated foliage of Kaleidoscope Abelia is yellow with green centers. White, bell shaped flowers burst from their pink buds in late summer and keep going well into autumn. True to its name, this Abelia is a myriad of yellows, oranges and reds in fall
