Gracefully cascading in opulent 2 to 4 in. compact racemes amid shiny bronze-tinged new growth, ‘Amethyst Falls’ earns its name. The fragrant, pealike, vivid lavender-hued flowers unfurl some two weeks earlier than their Asian relatives and if lightly pruned will produce a summer encore. A slew of twining stems and airy pinnate foliage composed of green oval-shaped leaflets can be trained up a pergola or a trellis and as a free-standing tree form.

An improved selection of our native American Wisteria, this noninvasive, award winning cultivar exhibits an easily controlled less aggressive habit, which withstands deer, most diseases and some drought, doesn’t fuss about soil fertility and relishes good drainage. Large Band.

Blooms late April – May & September

Size: 20' 0" – 25' 0" high x 0" & spreading wide.

Hardy to zone 5.

If you’re smitten with Wisteria but searching for one that’s not so unruly, you may be interested in this superior southeastern U.S. native. Splendid close-knit clusters of 30 to 50 delicately fragrant blue-violet flowers garnish the current season’s growth, unfurling throughout the summer. Amongst large ovate green deciduous leaflets, the lovely cascading blossoms are followed by long lustrous seedpods that lend late season interest. Easier to manage and more hardy than her Asian counterparts, ‘Aunt Maude’ cloaks walls, trellises and columns with her long lasting floral charm. (pp#20,006)

Quart

Blooms June–July

Size: 12' 0" – 18' 0" high x 0" & spreading wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

Feathery-fine ferns, Refresh your summer border, Summer Shipping!

Characterized by delicate-looking fronds...

the deer-proof ferns, which are featured above, unfurl spritely new fiddleheads every spring. All are deciduous save for the lustrous Polystichum, otherwise known as Tassel Fern. Varying shades of green, metallic silver, russet, bronze and burgundy imbue their artful foliage. Second-to-none for shady alcoves, these easy-care perennials can be planted as specimens or grouped in shade gardens, mixed borders and woodland settings. Their filigree-fine features lend sophisticated accents to patio containers or cut arrangements. Ferns will flourish in cool , well-drained moist nooks enriched with compost or well-rotted manure.  

Refresh your summer plantings...

During the month of July, gardeners sometimes wonder how they can perk up their summer gardens. Sunshine-hued blooms, golden leaves and crisp white flowers lend lively accents. They can be sprinkled amid a mixed border, perennial bed or other plantings, melding well with flowers that include a broad color spectrum from blue-violet to purple and lilac, as well as clear pink and darker rose hues.  

Apart from adding more plants, there are a few simple maintenance techniques that will help your garden maintain a fresh appearance during the summer. The addition of a chipped-bark mulch or well-rotted compost early in the season, not only reduces water requirements throughout the warmer months, but promotes vigorous growth and peppy-looking foliage. Many perennials, such as Nepetas and Geraniums, can be trimmed in June or July. This midseason cut back ensures a tidy stature and more blooms, often all the way ‘til frost.

We hope some of the plants in this newsletter spark some interest and beckon you to dig them into that empty spot in your garden.
