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!

Lonicera caerulea 'Stimul' SUGAR MOUNTAINBALALAIKATM  Honeyberry Honeysuckle SunLight ShadePart Shade    Z: 3-6

Lonicera caerulea 'Stimul' (SUGAR MOUNTAIN® BALALAIKATM)  Sweetberry HoneysuckleAbundant 1" x.5" VERY sweet blue edible fruit.  Looks like a chubby, elongated blueberry.  A low maintenance shrub.  Pruning not needed but mature plants can be thinned by 25% in winter. Water regularly, especially when first planted. They are not only easier to grow than blueberries, but they also contain far higher levels of antioxidants and three times the amount of vitamin C.  Note zone, not a plant for warm areas.  We're going to try them here (7A) in a cool spot in filtered shade. The problem in the South is not summer BUT that the shrub will break dormancy during a warm spell in winter, so winter shade is the important part. And good mulching to keep the soil frozen!

Lorepetalums and Hardiness -- How hardy are these plants?

This is still under debate but Hortus, the encyclopedia of horticultural knowledge in the United States lists hardiness to between 10-20 degrees F and the Royal Horticulture Encyclopedia of Plants states the same. This information is contradicted however by data from a test garden in Georgia that recorded 4 degrees F without damage to Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum cultivars and laboratory tests have run these plants down to 0 degrees F.  Generally it is thought that Loropetalum can be planted as far north as Virginia in the eastern states and is hardy throughout the western states along the coast."  San Marcos Growers (West Coast Wholesale Grower).  They've had them for years at the National Arboretum, zone 6B but with heat from the DC concrete mass.

The three varieties we offer at Lazy S'S should all be reliably hardy in Zone 7.
