Our 2013 shipments of nursery stock will begin arriving this week or next. We will have a fabulous selection of trees and shrubs for you. Among them will be several new varieties. Following are a few that we are offering for the first time this year:
Deutzia 'Chardonnay Pearls' -- This lovely deciduous shrub has crisp lime-yellow foliage and then sports white pearl-like buds which open into fragrant flowers soon after. Growing only two to three feet tall, 'Chardonnay Pearls' is a lovely addition to a perennial bed or can serve as a border plant in your shrub bed. Deutzia thrives in partial shade.
Willow 'Flamingo' -- This dappled willow has beautiful foliage in mottled colors of pink, white, and green. New foliage shows the pink dappling while mature foliage becomes dappled green and white. 'Flamingo' likes sun or part shade and, when trimmed, will stay about 4' to 6' tall. Trimming helps keep the bright new leaf growth coming -- an added plus with this plant.
Buddleia 'Lo and Behold Ice Chip' -- This Butterfly Bush, a Proven Winner selection, has many attractions. Its fragrant blooms of pure white grow on branches of silvery foliage. It needs no deadheading and the blooms recur. It has a spreading habit, growing 18" to 24" and 3' wide so it can serve as a shrub-type ground cover. Butterflies love it! It is a heat and drought tolerant plant.
Hydrangea 'Vanilla Strawberry' (Rehny) -- This is a new "must have" hydrangea for your landscape! Its blooms begin in July and continue through September. They begin as white but soon turn pink and then progress to strawberry red and burgundy. Since the shrub continues to produce new blooms during this period, it will sport blooms of all these colors at once. 'Strawberry Vanilla' likes sun or part-sun and grows six or seven feet tall. This is a spectacular shrub!
Spiraea 'Japanese White Gold' -- This spirea sports bright yellow foliage that stays yellow all season. In late May beautiful snow-white blooms appear. 'White Gold' likes full sun and grows 2 1/2' to 5' tall, another lovely addition of color for your landscape.
Weigela 'Wings of Fire' -- This sun-loving shrub has lavender pink flowers in the spring but its real claim to fame is its distinctive red foliage in the fall. 'Wings of Fire' provides color and texture while growing 3' to 4' high and wide.
Stop by Norway Gardens often during the coming weeks to see all the beautiful trees and shrubs as they arrive. If you are wanting to refurbish your existing landscape or create a new one, let our professionals help you. We can design what you want and then you can install it or let us do that for you.
Note that the various blends cover different areas per pound. Showplace Mix, for example, is the most expensive per pound. However, one pound goes much further. (Bluegrass seeds are much tinier than other grass seeds so there are many more seeds per pound of bluegrass.)
When you purchase a tree or shrub and are ready to plant, follow these steps to help your new plant thrive.
