New this season in the hardy paniculata type Hydrangeas is the Lavalamp series, including Candelabra, Flare, and Sublime.

Other popular shrubs we have returning this season are Hibiscus Chiffon Lavender and Chiffon White (Rose of Sharon), Butterfly Bush Flutterby Petite Blue Heaven and Tutti Fruitti Pink as well as Autumn Blooming Clematis.  Great for small hedging projects are the Dwarf Boxwood, and for a unique ground cover try out the Drift series Roses.

New this season are the Bella series Potentilla, offering a tidy growth habit and compact size, with larger flowers with colors that intensify rather than fade.  Bella Bellissima has intensely pink blooms from top to bottom and Bella Sol has fiery orange flowers smothering virtually care free shrubs.
