    SUGAR SHACK® Buttonbush

    Buttonbush is an excellent native plant for wet, even boggy, sites. Its perfectly round, fragrant flowers support pollinator populations and delight gardeners who enjoy a bit of whimsy. However, the original was just really big. Much larger than most folks could fit in their gardens! Sugar Shack® was selected for its naturally compact habit – it is about half the size of typical buttonbush. It also has showy red fruit in the fall rather than the typical green fruit. It makes a lovely addition to manicured and wild landscapes alike.

    • Plentiful summer blooms for pollinators
    • Compact habit

    MR. MUSTARD® False Spirea

    A diminutive selection, about a fifth the size of the species and about half the size of ‘Sem’. It boasts brighter and longer-lasting colorful springtime foliage that yields an array of yellow, orange, red, and even pink hues. White, astilbe-like, flowers appear in summer attracting butterflies and other pollinators. As growth slows in mid-summer, the foliage transitions to a Kelly green. Remove the suckers annually to maintain a mounded habit or plant in restricted area to contain its growth. Tolerant of alkaline and clay soils.

    BERRY HEAVY® Winterberry Holly

    This mass of cheery red berries looks at home in a variety of gardens – wildlife, native, formal, and mixed beds, of course. If you need a big surefire success for your fall show, trust Berry Heavy winterberry. It has a nice large habit, with good branching. It loads up with tiny white flowers in the springtime and when pollinators cross back and forth between it and the male pollinator, Mr. Poppins™, it develops a profusion of berries. There are more than enough branches to gather some for floral displays and leave plenty for the birds. This plant drops its leaves early in the fall, which gives it a great landscape presence. Unlike older varieties that keep their leaves well into late fall, which hides the berries a bit and makes it a little tedious to clean up to display in a vase. Once a few frosts hit, the berries will soften up enough for the birds to eat them. Unlike the birds, deer won’t touch these plants, so you’ll get to enjoy watching this North American native grow uninhibited.

    Why grow Berry Heavy winterberry?

    • Tolerates a variety of conditions, including clay soils and rain gardens
    • Abundant fruit set
    • Easy maintenance

    FAIRYTRAIL™ Green Cascade Hydrangea®

    Meet the first ever Cascade Hydrangea® available in North America! We’re confident you’ll love its unique horizontal growing habit, especially since flowers develop at every leaf cluster along its graceful, trailing stems. Its summer borne florets are filled with deckle-edged petals, bringing a frilly, lacy look to the landscape. There are no limits to the ways you can use Fairytrail Bride® in the garden – it’s ready to wow your neighbors in hanging baskets, containers, cascading over retaining walls, and filling in mixed beds.

    We recommend part sun (4-6 hrs sun/day) for this plant; morning shade is particularly key for its success. See, the Cascade hydrangea plant itself is actually quite hardy. However, it blooms much, much earlier than other old wood-blooming hydrangeas, like big leaf and mountain. This makes its beautiful blooms extra susceptible to spring frosts and freezes. We found that if the plant is grown in a spot with morning shade, then the potential damage from those spring cold snaps is mitigated because the frost melts more slowly, limiting the damage it causes to the delicate floral tissue.

    Why grow Fairytrail Bride® Cascade Hydrangea®:

    – Incredibly floriferous!

    – Lush! Mid-sized habit is filled with healthy green foliage.

    – Totally new opportunity to love and learn more about hydrangeas.
