New – Nubia Boulevard Red Clematis

An exciting reblooming, gorgeous “red” clematis.  These dark red flowers are 5″ across and bloom from June to September.  The vine grows about 5′ high and will grow in full sun to part shade.  It would look great in a large planter by your entryway.  Since it blooms from both the leaf axils and stems, there are flowers from the ground up.  This is a Zone 4 clematis.  We also have other beautiful clematis’.  So stop in when they arrive to get your selection early before they are gone.

New – Winecraft Smoke Bush

This is no “green” shrub.  It starts the season with rich purple foliage, becoming deeper in color until it is nearly black, and then in fall it turns a brilliant orange..  This semi-dwarf dark-leaf smokebush  is a Proven Winners, therefore you know it is special.  Early summer brings wispy redflowers that become the beautiful, hazy-violet “smoke” that gives this plant its name.  It has a rounded, semi-dwarf habit.
