June is Perennial Gardening Month! Let us be your gardening partner to build a colourful perennial border. Summer hours are now in effect.
Flowering shrubs are used more and more in the landscape by gardeners who want a reliable, and beautiful presentation with minimal fuss.
The new flowering shrubs are not only bred to be more compact, which means less or no pruning, but also have awesome flower power. Let us help you select hardy types that will transform those drab spots in your garden to vibrant focal points.
We carry a full line of flowering shrubs that is always changing to reflect the bloom times of the different varieties, so that you can see what they will look at their peak in your garden.
Blooming workhorses like Hydrangeas and weigela in the garden always feature prominently at Sun Harvest, while native shrubs are increasing in their appeal to the gardener who is looking to coax more habitat for our wild birds and pollinators.
Here are a few examples of the many shrub varieties that we will be carrying.
Gardeners prize Mockorange for their intoxicating scent, however the old fashioned types are unruly and get overgrown in the garden.
This conveniently sized native shrub cultivar is well suited in small space gardens or as foundation planting underneath windows. Its pure coloring blends well with all the deciduous flowering shrubs. Excellent in shrub borders or as a background for perennial beds. Consider this shrub when designing all white moonlight gardens. Wonderfully fragrant double flowers bloom in late spring following the lilac flush.Cut stems are great for floral arrangements.
Not your average spirea! Providing long last colour from spring to fall, Spirea Double Play Candy Corn is a striking deciduous shrub with a rounded ,compact habit with candy apple red leaves in spring that change to a pineapple yellow in summer. It dazzles with red, orange and yellow all season with the purple flowers emerging in summer. It is the perfect shrub for contrasting with other plants in the landscape and because of its compact growth it behaves and stays tidy in smaller garden spaces. A shrub loved by hummingbirds and butterflies, but ignored by deer and rabbits.
The Invincibelle® Ruby Hydrangea is a beautiful smooth hydrangea bred from Proven Winners®. This plant is remarkable because it has red, burgundy and pink blooms, which is rare for a hydrangea arborescens. These beautiful flowers are held upright by very strong stems, helping these shrubs keep a nice mounded form. It is happiest in part sun locations.
