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.
