Hibiscus syriacus Azurri Satin®, Cultivar Name: DVPazurri, PP#20,563. This seedless Rose of Sharon grows an even larger body with ...even bigger flowers. The rich blue single flowers are as big as dinner plates, and they arise on lush plants 6 feet wide and 8 to 12 feet tall! This thriller is sure to become the focal point of you whole garden. And because this cultivar is sterile, it will not take over your yard (and beyond) like other Hibiscus can. Azurri Satin® is a carefree joy youll want for the hot, sunny summer garden. Few shrubs are more heat- and humidity-tolerant than Hibiscus, which basks in temperatures that make others wilt and brown out! Give this shrub plenty of water and nonstop sunlight and youve got a bloom machine 5 months out of every year! The showy, tropical blooms are a powder blue with a crimson eye that bleeds outward. The stunning, gigantic blooms open from late summer until late fall, attracting attention for months. Even though this variety is seedless, it still produces enough nectar to attract plenty of butterflies! The alluring blooms are all the more impressive because they are borne high in the air on plants with a graceful, narrow habit. Azurri Satin ® is a great choice for a foundation planting, accent in the patio or other garden nook, or hedge. It makes a fine companion to Plum Fantasy, and a nice background planting to Dwarf Russian Sage and other low-growing shrubs, as well as colorful annuals and perennials of all description. No shrub is easier--this is one tough plant, untroubled by pests and disease and able to maintain itself through good weather and poor alike. Space these shrubs about 4 to 5 feet apart for a dense wall of showy color. Zones 5-9. read more

For years the Holy Grail of serious gardeners, this Itoh Hybrid from master breeder Roger Anderson sold for more than $1,000 a div...ision as late as 1999, but today is mercifully much more affordable! Yet no other Peony has surpassed it for beauty, fragrance, or sheer flower power, and we doubt any will. With blooms measuring 9 inches across, fully double and redolent of zesty lemon, this Peony would be remarkable even if it didnt have the vigor to produce more than 80 flowers a season on a single plant. The flowers are simply magnificent, whorled like a rose but far longer-lasting and much larger. The outer layers are a creamy meringue, becoming more richly yellow toward the center, where hints of a red base (the flares characteristic of Tree Peonies) are visible as the bloom unfolds to its fullest extent. Absolutely superior to others as a cut-flower, they last for several weeks in the vase, their scent remaining as fresh and enticing as their petals. A single plant will perfume the garden and keep your vases full . . . but at this very special pricing, who would plant just one? Bartzella is an intersectional or Itoh hybrid, a very special class of Peonies with parentage from both Tree and Herbaceous species. Blooming in between the Tree Peonies and their Herbaceous cousins, Bartzella offers a range of superior traits: shrubby habit, fragrance, luscious bloom color and larger bloom size, excellent resistance to Peony Blight, tolerance of heat, humidity, cold, and poor soil, and extended bloom season. This plant reaches about 3 feet high and wide in sun or light shade. It is untroubled by rabbits or deer, and is quite long-lived, blooming dependably for decades. Peonies are very slow to propagate (hence their high price) but are quite low maintenance once planted in the garden. They flower in late spring or early summer, and often need plant supports to hold up their bounty of huge blooms. Although most frequently used as a cutflower, they are a delightful garden presence as well, the flowers holding for weeks. Discover the joy of this old-fashioned flower with modern vigor, longevity, and bloom strength! And please reserve your Bartzella early. At this price, it will not see out the season!
