 Newest Shrubs 
Sweet Emotion Abelia

Here is just the shrub to kick-start your heart - and your garden! ‘Sweet Emotion’ grows where no Abelia could grow before - here in Canadian zone 5. It offers the most fragrant - white and pink spring blooms that just fill the air with the scent of jasmine. Add in its elegant habit, attractive seed heads and orange fall foliage and the result is a perfect shrub near patio or pool.  Tolerant of part shade, it grows 5-6 ft. tall and wide in moist, well-drained soil.

Sister Golden Hair Broom

Brooms are very showy plants that bloom with cascading weeping branches highlighted with bright yellow flowers. What separates THIS Scotch Broom from others are the extra large and brilliant flowers that just cover it! Elegant, weeping branches give it a mounded habit that only sizes to 12-18 inches tall and wide. It will thriveg in full sun and dry conditions, and its flower show will last for up to a month! Tiny leaves cover the green stems once the blooms fall, providing a unique textural effect. It's an excellent plant for dry sunny slopes.

Fine Line Buckthorn

This is not the problematic European variety, but rather a gorgeous Buckthorn that offers a perfect combination of fluffy, soft green fern-like foliage coupled with a narrow columnar habit. It grows only 2-3 ft. wide, but 5-7 ft. tall in part to full sun. Somewhat slow growing, it looks best in its natural state but can be pruned if required. Extremely versatile, it is makes an informal hedge, frames entrances and works well as a vertical specimen in a Japanese Garden! 

Flying Machine Forsythia

This very special variety comes to us from South Korea. Enormous, deep golden yellow flowers fall from the branches intact, resulting in a doubly dramatic display, first when it blooms, the second when its fallen blossoms carpet the ground. This large forsythia matures to 5-8 ft. tall and 4-6 ft. wide and is ideal for hedging or as a truly unforgettable specimen in sun or part shade. Best flowers are found with less exposed location - not for locations north of K-W.

Tiny Tower Illuminati Mock Orange

This new twist on an old-fashioned favourite was selected for its narrow, columnar habit and unique four-sided ‘tower’ effect. Growing 3-4 ft. tall in sun or part shade, it will only spread 18-24” wide. Hundreds of double white, fragrant flowers nestle within dark green foliage in early summer along the dramatically upright branches. Definitely a winner for any garden!

Lilla Dwarf Purple Smoke Bush

This dwarf form of the 'Royal Purple' cultivar is perfect for smaller gardens! It grows to form a small, rounded shrub with all of the color and interest of its larger cousin. It produces frothy plumes of pink flowers that rise above the wine red foliage in the summer. Oval leaves turn a mix of orange, coral, and red in the fall.  But with it only growing to 4 ft. tall and wide in sun or part shade, and the low maintenance it requires, it's possible to make a big impact in your garden easily!

Magical Treasure Coralberry

Perfect for smaller spaces, this hardy, easy-to-grow shrub bears arching stems on a tight, rounded plant. Growing only 3 ft. tall and wide in sun or part shade, each branch is loaded with small pink flowers in spring that develop striking fruit that are very showy through the fall – developing a true  'Wow' factor. It bursts with lush, pure pink, decorative berries! Both deer and rabbit resistant!

Temple of Bloom Seven Sons Plant

Wow! This unusual and extremely beautiful specimen plant from Proven Winners is covered with white blooms in late August to September before developing cherry red bracts more striking than other Seven Sons! An easy plant to grow, it prefers moist, yet well-drained soil and it grows only 6 to 10 ft. tall and wide in sun or part shade. Great colour in the late summer/fall garden, this incredible variety is a magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds as well!

Spike Hydrangea

This award-winning new variety bears full, romantic-looking ruffled pink or blue flowers that mature to green as the season progresses and will add old-fashioned charm to any garden! Growing only 36-40 inches tall and wide, it will do well in sun or part shade. Not only is it a wonderful specimen plant, but the flowers can be cut and dried for arrangements as well! Blossoms respond to pH amendments - bluer with lower pH, pinker with higher.

Princess Diana Hydrangea

This exquisite new hydrangea with amazing star shaped blossoms sets the summer scene beautifully, producing large globes of bright, vivid pink double flowers that repeat  from summer to early autumn. Blooming on both old and new wood, it can grow 3-1/2 ft. tall and wide, preferring well-drained soil, with the most intense pink coming with soils amended with a little lime. A perfect selection for shady borders and woodland gardens!

Confetti Hydrangea

This hardy charmer allows everyone to have a large bloomed hydrangea in their garden! Growing 4 ft. tall and 3 ft. wide with a bushy growth habit and strong branches, it bears lightly scented flower blossoms that are a playful mix of white and pink with slightly green on top and bloom from early summer to late fall. Tolerant of sun or part shade, it is ideal for borders, masses and specimen planting.

Betsy Ross Lilac

Specifically bred to be a hardier, more disease tolerant lilac variety, this lilac bears large clusters of fragrant white flowers that completely cover this multi-stemmed, rounded plant. As an added bonus, these blossoms come earlier than most lilacs in the landscape letting you enjoy the heady fragrance even sooner. Best in full sun, this variety could grow to 10 ft. tall and over 8 ft. wide and is ideal for screening.

Scentara Double Blue Lilac

The fragrance of this newest member of the lilac family will knock your socks off! Bearing cool purple blooms that take on a blue tone in the spring sunshine, each one is full of petals for a delicate seashell-like effect. Among the first lilacs to bloom, this heavy bloomer exhibits excellent disease resistance and has an appealing shape that will look right at home in your garden. Growing 6-8 ft. tall and wide in full sun, it requires well drained soil.

Spice Bush

Spicebush is a fast-growing native shrub, useful in moist, shady places. A small amount of sun yields a bush with better form, and it's been known to grow to become a 5 to 8 foot tall shrub that is slightly wider than tall. It is the preferred food for spicebush swallowtail butterfly larvae. Known as the “forsythia of the wilds” because its early spring flowering gives a subtle yellow tinge to the many lowland woods where it is commonly found. While rather a plain bush in summer, the leaves turn a colourful golden-yellow in fall.

Rainbow Fizz Spirea

Add a ‘fizz’ to your garden with this hardy new spirea and its sheer rainbow of colours from spring through to late fall! Foliage emerges copper, changes to yellow with red tips in spring, and then ends copper-red. The fun doesn’t stop there; the candy-like flower buds start red and finish with a whimsical pink bloom! Compact and easy to grow, it matures to 3-4 ft. tall and wide in sun or part sun. Ideal for mixed borders!

Snippet Dark Pink Weigela

Every spring, landscapes everywhere are graced with romantic white-flowering spirea like this one. Wedding Cake Spirea, however, is a smaller, more compact plant than its old-fashioned cousins, making it perfectly suited to any sized yard. Neat, blue-green foliage sets off the pure white flower clusters, and the plant has a rounded, rather than arching, habit that reaches just 3-4' tall. Lovely as a specimen or hedge!

Everlasting Crimson Hydrangea

From The Netherlands, this 'tough-as-nails' mop-head hydrangea was bred for the cut flower market. Only 3-4 ft. tall and wide, it forms tough stems and shiny dark-green leathery foliage, with the longest lasting flower heads ever developed! Requiring sun to part shade, early blooms are mixed shades of green with shades that turn to strong crimson, and then fade to deep red. A chameleon plant for many garden uses!

Wabi Sabi Doublefile Viburnum

This space saving dwarf version of the popular doublefile viburnum will take your breath away! Growing low and wide, every branch bears large, pure white lace-cap flowers in late spring and is perfect for the front of beds, planting atop walls, or lining walkways. Tolerant of shade or sun, it will grow only 2-3 ft. high, but can spread 3-4 ft. wide.

Korean Spice Baby Viburnum

With its light pinkish-white, fragrant spring bloom clusters and neat, compact habit, this slow growing 'Baby' is a great addition for your garden! Hardier than other small viburnum varieties, it is ideal for smaller gardens, providing all of the spicy, intoxicating spring fragrance and seasonal colour in a petite package. Preferring moist, well-drained soil, it could grow 3-1/2 to 5 ft. tall and wide in sun or part shade.

White Pillar Rose of Sharon

A sister plant to Purple Pillar Rose of Sharon, this plant grows in a narrow column and by doing so it takes up just a fraction of the space that conventional roses of Sharon do. This particular variety sports pure white, semi-double blooms, making it an elegant choice for planting in any style landscape. It can grow to as tall as 10' with a width of a mere 3 to 4 feet. As with all Rose of Sharons, it grows best in full sun to light shade on most soils except those that are heavy or wet. 

My Monet Purple Effect

This slow growing dwarf plant creates a big impression! Covered in attractive variegated foliage that has lovely purple tinges, it grows slightly larger than the original My Monet Weigela to 30" tall and wide in full sun. It produces soft, rosy pink flowers in abundance in June and requires minimal maintenance.
