Some New Plants in our Inventory, Walberton’s Spirea

Happy Spring!  Finally spring has arrived.  However it will still be weeks before you should begin to uncover your plants or work in your garden.  In the meantime we will highlight a few plants that are new to our inventory this year or perhaps we added them last year.  Hopefully one or two of these plants may be of interest to you and work in that spot where you need something alive and growing.

This week we have chosen Walberton’s® Plumtastic spirea.  This compact plant is perfect for low borders or edging pathways. Plant it as a single species or in masses.   It works well planted in a small, skinny area that you may have between your sidewalk and house.   Plumtastic only gets around 16″ high and wide.   Outside of being small, it has flushes of pink-cerise blooms that flower continuosly from summer into fall.  The foliage opens to a rich purple and ages to green.  It likes full sun.  Like most spireas it is very easy to grow.  Butterflies and bees love it.  Google this plant and you will see some gorgeous pictures.  We predict this plant to be a hot seller.

This specimen poses excellent in the landscape by itself or as a hedge or screening. Petite early season flowers precede large red fruit which can be used in making preserves or fresh eating. Wildlife will love this plant and so will you!

The Rainbow Sensation oozes decadence. This medium sized shrub checks in with a height and spread of three to four feet. Light pink flowers “pop off the page” in contrast to the variegated green/yellow foliage. When fall makes an entrance, the foliage begins to take on a pink tone that stands out and pairs superb with perennial grasses or dark colored shrubs.

Berry Poppins Winterberry

What a beaut! A great compact plant that has multiple seasons of interest! Aside from the beautiful yellow fall foliage from Berry Poppins, the main eye-catching event is the flourish of berries that decorate the winter landscape.
