The bells shaped flower of Weigela are a beautiful addition to the spring landscape. But what would you think of the idea of enjoying the blooms all summer long? Well now you can!

The Pearl(white), red and pink blooms contrast beautifully with the bright green foliage. These new additions are easy to grow and would make a great hedge. Their reblooming qualities would give you season long color from a shrub. The Sonic Bloom™ series stand 4 to 5 foot tall and wide. Be on the lookout for butterflies enjoying a tasty treat.
The unofficial start to summer is now here! Yeah I can hardly believe it. We have had such a slow go at getting started this season with all the rain and cold weather. I think though that now we should have the nicer weather and quite possibly it seems like it is here to stay. With all the nice weather that we have upon us it also is bringing out the best in the spring blooming perennials.
Clematis ‘Vino‘ is one of the first Clematis vines to blooming my garden. This shorter sized variety is perfect for a small obelisk or mailbox garden. ‘Vino‘ blooms a magenta/ purple color in my part shade location. Keep in mind that Clematis can bloom differently from state to state and location to location. The bloom color on clematis can be varied by the sun/shade location, the amount of humidity that is in your area along with the time of year that it is blooming. Clematis may bloom one color in the spring and then rebloom a slightly different shade in the late summer. Clematis are a wonderful choice for an added interest in vertical gardening.
Autumn Charm™ Sedum
Sedum ‘ Autumn Charm‘ is a sport of Sedum ‘Autumn Joy‘. There are other variegated varieties out there but the consistent variegation in Sedum ‘Autumn Charm‘ is like no other. Sedum are a great addition to a full sun garden and also tolerate drought conditions. In the late summer Sedum are a natural attraction for the butterflies. Deer on the other hand will generally stay away from Sedum, deer resistant they are. Sedum are a great addition for late summer color.

(Clematis) This is the first year we have carried Clematis ‘Anna Louise‘. I love the contrast of purple and magenta on each petal. Standing 8-10 foot with its large 5-6″ vibrant flowers ‘Anna Louise‘ is a stand out. The white anthers contrast beautifully with the purple red flower. Blooming early summer and early fall this reblooming clematis is sure to please.
