As exquisitely formed and richly scented as a gardenia, the soft white, fully double blooms of White Rose last and last on this co...mpact, very cold-hardy little tree. A seedling selection of Ballerina that outdoes its parent in nearly every way, White Rose is ideal for todays smaller gardens, making a big impact without occupying a lot of space. The blooms arise in early spring, ahead of many Magnolias, and remain fresh and ultra-fragrant for weeks. The petals dont drop until long after the bloom has faded, so you can watch the color progression and enjoy every minute of these spectacular flowers. Held upright like giant candles on their stems, the blooms are awe-inspiring. Even after the flowers pass, White Rose is a pleasant presence in the garden. At maturity this tree is just 12 feet high and 8 to 10 feet wide, and it thrives in full sun in cool and temperate climates, partial shade farther south and west. (It makes a fine understory planting.) Give it a place of honor and enjoy the large, handsome foliage and plump, full shape of this tree. White Rose has much better tolerance of winds, cold weather, and poor soils than many other Magnolias. Once established, it is adaptable and easy. You will enjoy a legacy of early spring beauty for decades with this fine specimen! Zones 4-8. read more

Sometimes known as the D.L.C. Hybrids after their breeder David Culp, the Brandywine? Strain of Hellebores represents the best of ...decades of European breeding, boasting unusual colors and combinations coupled with impeccable flower form. In this strain you will find single, anemone, and double blooms; a full range of solid, bicolored, freckled, and even picoteed forms; and colors from the traditional deep reds, pale greens, and ivories to very hard-to-find yellows, pinks, and apricots. (Each plant only displays ONE bloom color.) If its time to add some variety to the Hellebore display, you need the Brandywine? Strain. Breeder David Culp collected the original plants for this strain from the premier Hellebore gardens and collections of Europe, then spent 15 years hand-crossing them to select only the finest in color and flower form for the Brandywine? Strain. Rare species, award-winning plants, and a diversity of flower forms all contributed heavily to this strain, and the results show in every plant. Brandywine? Hellebores are about 12 to 18 inches tall and a foot wide. Like all Hellebores, they are wonderfully resistant to heat, humidity, drought, and cold. Rabbits and deer leave them alone (the plants are poisonous), making them ideal as ground cover, mass planting in woodland and other open areas, and in the border. Evergreen and very adaptable, they flower in late winter and early spring, the blooms drying on the plant and becoming papery over their several-months duration. Introduce the Brandywine? Strain into your shade garden this season and capture fine European breeding in its most refined form. Zones 4-9. read more

We are delighted to offer this Winter Thriller? Helleborus to gardeners this season! A brand-new color for the family, these 3-inc...h blooms sport creamy orange-apricot tones with red flecks and edges. They remain on this Lenten Rose for an astonishing 3 months or more, drying to an exquisite papery consistency. And as Mango Magic matures, its bloom strength increases, until it can sport 50 or more flowers at the height of its long season! Mango Magic is part of the Winter Thriller? series offered by Wayside Gardens alum Chris Hansen. Chris has been breeding Hellebores for more than 15 years, and his dedication has paid off with this high-performing, really exceptionally colorful series. Fully 3 inches wide, these flowers are suffused with color and remain on the plant for 12 weeks or more, from late winter into late spring in most climates. Incredible! This Hellebore should become a mainstay of your shade border. Its simply the easiest plant you can grow, and among the longest-lived, too. Because it is poisonous, pests keep their distance -- including hungry deer and nibbling rabbits. Disease-free and very vigorous, it offers large, evergreen foliage of deep green that looks good year-round. The blooms are large and nodding, held just above the foliage. Cut them at the top of the stem and float them in a bowl of water to show off their colorful interiors, or better yet, let them remain on the plant, decorating the shade garden during the final weeks of winter and well into spring. The blooms dry right on their stems, acquiring paler but no less interesting tones as they mature! We predict that Mango Magic may become your favorite shade perennial, and that the blooms will be standouts in your garden. The plant itself reaches 20 inches high and up to 24 inches wide in partial to full shade, tolerating a wide range of stressors from dry soil to poor fertility. Pamper it the first few seasons, make sure the soil drainage is good, and you will find it virtually maintenance-free! Zones 4-8. read more

This elegant rose is the showpiece of the Vatican private garden and will gladly grace yours as well! Among the finest white roses... ever, it produces pure, luminous white, lavishly petaled 5-inch blossoms with a delightful fresh citrus fragrance. This exceptional hybrid tea has received top ratings for its powerful scent, vigorous growth, superior disease resistance, and perfect bloom form. These sparkling blooms unfurl from delightful pointed, ovoid buds, revealing up to 30 clean white petals. They arise in flushes throughout their early summer to late summer season, standing out brilliantly against the background of glossy, dark green, very disease-resistant foliage. The plants themselves reach a mature height of 4 to 5 feet and a width of 3 to 4 feet, so theyre ideal for a number of situations: beds, borders, cut gardens, even large patio containers. Plant in well-drained soil in full sun and water regularly, preferably in the morning.

Prune hybrid tea roses to half height or 18-20 inches above the ground in early spring. Remove old canes and dead wood. Cut back canes that cross each other. Gardeners in warmer climates will want to cut the remaining canes by one-third, while those in colder climates will probably need to trim it a bit more. read more
