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!

Viburnums can be the Star of your Garden!Viburnum BerriesViburnum Fall Color

This Genus belongs in every garden.  While the blooms are almost always white, there are other qualities to be considered, leaf size and texture varies, some have incredible FRAGRANCE, most have Amazing FALL COLOR and many have beautiful BERRIES!  Make room for one or more Viburnums!

Viburnums set MUCH more fruit with a pollinator BUT oddly enough many species will pollinate each other.  Some will set almost no fruit without a pollinator so check out this list on Dave's Garden Viburnum Pollinator's or more information on this forum for more specifics.

Viburnum acerifolium   Mapleleaf viburnum, Maple-leaf viburnum, Arrow-wood    Z: 3-8

Viburnum acerifolium   Mapleleaf viburnum, Maple-leaf viburnum, Arrow-woodWhite flower heads in clusters 1.5-3" wide from pink buds are followed by red drupes which eventually turn purple then black over maple leave like foliage adorn this US East Coast Native.  In Fall, the foliage may be purple-pink, red or orange.  Ours is generally mauve pink -- a startling and truly delightful color in the Autumn woods!  I can't say if it's our clone that's always pink or our weather but since our weather does vary, one might assume this clone is pink in Fall.  Berries are suitable for jam.  Host plant for the Spring Azure Butterfly.   Somewhat suckering but not aggressive - maybe 6 feet after 20 years.   

PLEASE NOTE: As a slow growing plant and due to it's nature, first year plants are not tall -- they're very short.  In colonies they tend to continue growing horizontally underground, sending up new vertical stems about every 4" RATHER than putting growth energy in vertical growth.  A typical 1st year plant will probably be about 4-6" tall!    Additionally it is has Atypical 'Running' Roots with scant feeder roots growing down at each node on the main root.  See photo link above left for pictures of the roots.

Viburnum dilatatum 'Henneke' PP12870  CARDINAL CANDYTM  Linden Arrowwood    Zone 3-8   

Viburnum dilatatum 'Henneke'A very cold hardy Viburnum that is definitely a 4-Season plant.  From late spring into summer, it has beautiful dark green leaves and creamy white blooms that are 5" wide, flat head clusters.  In mid to late summer it has bright red berries, that look to be dipped in lacquer and are, as the name might suggest, the highlight of the plant.  The glossy red fruit are born in abundance from Sept. thru Nov. (no pollinator necessary.)  The foliage in autumn is rusty red  which sets off the berries to best effect.  Wonderful in the border or as a stand alone specimen.  You just can't go wrong with this winner.  This selection may be the hardiest cultivar available, surviving after exposure to -25 F temperatures.  May self seed in minimally managed areas.

A nice Plant Profile on Chaste Trees, which follow, from Red Butte Garden at the University of Utah.  Vitex agnus-castus performs better in the warmest areas of the country and V. negundo, is better on the colder end -- braving it into zone 5.  In between, they both perform beautifully.  And here's a great article on Vitex by Ketzel Levine.  She suggests discontinuing supplemental watering after July to increase hardiness.   Note: Our Zone 10 on Vitex agnus-castus is from the Univ. of Florida Fact Sheet on this species.  Most sources say Zone 9 as the warmer limit but gosh, UFL is IN Florida so we're trusting they know whereof they speak!  (The above links outside our site open in new windows so we don't lose you!)

Attack of the Killer Kittens!  (We just love this comment - what a visual!)

"My 'Cameo' quince are blooming, OH WOW! what a beautiful color, and this despite severe beatings from kittens all last summer. The Weigela 'Polka' took an even worse beating, I thought they were dead, and this morning a couple are starting to leaf out. I'm moving the old 'Polka's to the back of the house, and the new ones will go in front. You grow really tough plants! "

Weigela florida 'Polka'    Polka Ever Blooming Pink Weigela        Z:4-8   

The best pink Weigela? Many people think so!  Large bright pink flowers cover this compact 3-5 ft. plant. Extremely long bloom period: June to September. Read that again -- BLOOMS ALL SUMMER!!  A very hardy and desirable Weigela.  The only thing that could possibly be wrong with it is that you don't want pink or you need something shorter!  That's about it!  Oh, and see above -- they're apparently Kitten Proof!

Soil: Well-drained      H: 3-5'  W: 3-5'       B/M:   Bright Pink/ All summer

Xanthoceras sorbifolium   Chinese Flowering Chestnut, Shiny Leaf Yellowhorn       Zone: 4-7     

Xanthoceras sorbifoliumA deciduous small tree or multi-stemmed shrub from China featuring lustrous, compound green leaves which last late into fall and 1", 5-petaled white, star-shaped bloom with yellow or red center which appear in May in huge terminal racemes.  These lovely blooms are followed by 2.5" green fruit which resemble buckeyes, at least superficially.  Disease and pest free.  Near impossible to find in the trade.  But here it is!  Excellent tree as a specimen or in groups and is especially effective as a backdrop for spring flowering perennials.  The seed is about the size of a pea with a taste like a sweet chestnut hence one common name.

Soil:  Well-drained      H:  8-25'  W: 10-25'      B/M: White/May
