Plant Size for shrubs and trees Most people have never seen a shrub in a quart pot. Many garden centers don't even offer Perennials in quarts any more.  In garden centers, shrubs are generally only available in much larger containers: 1-3 gallons.  Please take a look at this photo of Quart Shrubs to get a sense of what shrubs in a quart pot look like and read about Plant Size and Age on this page so that you have realistic expectations.   We want you to be happy!  If you're not familiar with a quart size shrub you should take the time to look at these links!

This cultivar is one of the best with variegated leaves. The foliage is green with a deep yellow center, and the markings are retained well. Beautiful RED stems. Grows wider than tall.   The Variegated foliage moves this Forsythia out of the 'one season' Spring category because it's lovely from spring through late Fall.

Selected for good dark green foliage, superb, consistent yellow-orange-red fall color, abundant flowers and more upright form. The white flowers are FRAGRANT. A trouble-free Native. Mixes well with Azaleas & Rhododendrons with a totally different effect than they have.  Needs some shade in warmer zone.   Great Plant Picks - Miller Botanical Garden.

  'Hardy' Gardenias

Those gardener's in colder zones that dream of having a Gardenia in Zone 6 have a few more choices than in previous years HOWEVER, please know that they still take proper siting in a protected spot, protection from wind (maybe burlap or shrub coat - which gives another 1/2 zone of warmth and protection), adequate mulching, proper soil pH 5-6 (Acid), VERY well-drained soil, planting early in the planting season so they're well-rooted and prepared for winter.  Planting in Fall in marginally hardy zones will almost surely bring failure.  Plants need some shade, even in winter.   I see these plants 'bashed' on Forums because they didn't survive and invariably they were planted in Fall, in clay, etc. and as the kids say, "Well duh!"  And for our quart size plants, maybe a winter indoors until they get some size although that also takes skill.   You can grow these in Zone 6 BUT you must take the care and time to give the plant what it needs.    Site properly, out of the wind and against a foundation or a stone wall or so that a large evergreens shade them from PM sun and mulch well the first season or two.  DO NOT fertilize in Fall but in March and June if using time release fertilizer but NOT FALL.   Gardenias, in all honesty, are probably not for the beginning gardener unless you can be meticulous to detail.  But when grown properly they're amazing!

Humulus lupulus 'Aurea'    Golden Hops Vine     On the Vines Page  


Hydrangeas as Cut Flowers:  Because of the woody stem, they need somewhat different care.  Place stems in a bucket of ice water, pierce the stems with a needle in numerous places so they can absorb more water and not wilt and leave them in ice water for 4-6 hours.  Place them in your favorite vase with plant food.  Replace the water every 3 days with cold water and at that time, clip the bottom of the stem 1/2" underwater so that water can continue to be absorbed.  Don't place in full sun or a blowing fan and enjoy their blooms for up to 12 days!  A little more trouble than Perennial Cut Flowers, but oo-la-la, so worth the trouble.  Obviously, you can also just dry them for dried arrangements.

Hydrangea arborescens ‘NCAH1' ppaf (INVINCIBELLE™ Spirit)

'Invincibelle Spirit' is the first pink flowered form of 'Annabell' Hydrangea - thus the various plays on word -- the 'Bell' of 'Annabell' but in the French spelling because 'belle' means Beautiful!  Aptly named!  An easy to grow Hydrangea, she blooms superbly and is just as dependable and cold hardy as 'Annabelle' (the best known form of H. arborescens) but with a profusion of deep pink flowers, up to 10" in diameter from early summer to frost.  And it's heat tolerant to boot.  A percentage of the sales from this plant, through the Trademark Holder, funds critical cancer research.  Blooms every year even when cut back hard, thus can be used for a hedge that needs periodic pruning in late winter, early spring

Hydrangea blue and pink TNHydrangea macrophylla -- The Big Leaf Hydrangea - From the coastal area of Japan

While certain new cultivars have a stronger tendency toward pink or blue, the soil pH effects most of them.  Acid soil (lower than pH 6.5) soil produces blue flowers and Neutral/Limey soil (pH 6.5 to 7.5), lime, produces pink flowers.  Soil should be well-endowed with organic matter and moisture retentive.   In colder areas, Zone 6 (5), Hydrangeas are fine in full sun .  In warmer areas, Zone 7 and south, they appreciate some shade .  Prune after flowering: they bloom on old wood.    The Big-Leaf hydrangeas have two types of blooms -- Mopheads with round bloom heads and Lacecaps -- with flat blooms featuring small fertile blooms in the center and large, (sometimes double) non-fertile blooms on the outside.  PRUNE immediately after flowering.

A MUST READ ARTICLE on the New Hydrangeas.  If you think they're too common, or too coarse for you garden, then you don't know about the new ones!  Oo-la-la...

Itea yunnanensis    Chinese Sweetspire       Zone:  6B-9   SunLight ShadePart Shade

Itea yunnanensisGrows at altitudes of 3000 meters so may be more cold hardy than 6B)  I know of at least one garden in 6B where it's lived since 2000.  It does die back to the ground in 6B.

Shrub or small tree from China.  Young branches are yellow-green turning to brown with age.  FRAGRANT blooms in racemes terminal, nodding to pendulous.  Blooms are numerous, often 3-clustered and 7" long.  Similar to Itea ilicifolia but this has narrower leaf blades, usually twice as long as wide with a more densely spinose serrate margin.  Foliage is somewhat like a holly and evergreen in mild climates.

Soil: Moist but well-drained      H: 10-15'   W:       B/M: Greenish White/May
