Wayside Gardens Azurri Satin Rose of Sharon

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

Lime, Violet, White, Red, Buttery Yellow--you get a little bit of everything with this sophisticated mix! This strain incorporates... a wide variety of colors. Each plant will produce just one of these colors, so be sure to order multiples: the more plants you order, the greater your color variety will be! The big, outward-facing single (and occasionally double) blooms grow on strong stems as thick as pencils. Like all Helleborus, this mix requires some shade and appreciates evenly moist, well-drained soil rich in organic matter. It will tolerate clay soil, and in the cooler zones will tolerate more sun. Water frequently until the plants become established, after which they become more drought tolerant and only need constant moisture in exceptionally dry, hot weather. A year-round mulch helps to keep the roots moist. The evergreen foliage keeps its beauty all year, especially since it generally goes un-nibbled by pests like deer: an especially important quality if you intend to grow it in a wooded area! Helleborus readily seeds, slowly expanding its colorful shade empire. In the summer you should pull any of these seedlings that you do not want (these may not come true to their parentage), and transplant the rest into their permanent spots. Once established, Helleborus resent having their roots disturbed, so you should only divide them when necessary, and you should avoid division by spacing them properly in the first place. Zones 4 to 8. read more

Remarkable black blooms! The slate-colored petals are one of the truest blacks of any plant on the market, offset by the bright gr...een of the centers, and all on very large, upward-facing blooms! Combine these rich black blooms with white spring-blooming cultivars like Snowbells or Deutzia for a striking contrast! Even on their own the blooms create a full and beautiful display, with the lime green eye and creamy yellow anthers creating a nice contrast to the black petals. This one-of-a-kind Helleborus is the result of 9 years of meticulous breeding. Part of the Winter Thrillers? series, Night Coaster was bred for reliably true black blooms, very early bloom time, and exceptional flower form. The strong stems are as thick as pencils, proudly bearing their distinctive 3-inch blooms in an outward-facing position. Like other Helleborus, Night Coaster is quite easy to grow: just give it a shady spot with moist, well-draining soil. It will thrive even in clay soil, quickly becoming established, after which it can tolerate heat, humidity, and drought quite well. This trouble-free cultivar is generally left alone by pests and diseases, surviving for year after year of early-season beauty! 3˝ Inch Container. Zones 5 to 9. read more

Introduced in 1868, Zephirine Drouhin is a romantic, fantastically fragrant, old-fashioned Rose that is still one of the most popu...lar Climbing Roses today, especially in Europe. No Modern Rose has been able to exceed it for sheer performance and season-long bloom. Peaking in spring and fall, the loose, semi-double blossoms of vivid cerise-carmine provide outstanding mass effect. Each bloom is about 4 inches across, opening from a long, pointed bud and made up of 20 to 30 richly colored petals that are infused with a strong damask scent. The plant grows vigorously to 15 to 20 feet high and 4 to 5 feet wide and, remarkable for any Rose, performs well in shade! Its an excellent choice for north-facing walls and areas with little sunlight. The rich, dark green foliage (coppery-purple when young) is very mildew-resistant, and the canes are thornless, making it great for planting where traffic is heavy or children are nearby. This classic, time-tested climbing rose is the perfect choice to train over a trellis or porch, or trim into a formal hedge. Plant in moist, well-drained, loamy soil. Zones 5-9. read more

Plant Patent #20,506. Cultivar Name: Green 98-009. The pillar-like shrub of foliage is evergreen in its hardiness zone, and while ...other plants are dropping their leaves in October, it decides to bloom instead! The color, form, and profusion of these wondrous fall blooms are all reminiscent of the Floribunda rose, hence the name. Commonly referred to as dwarf sasanqua, the species C. hiemalis is both smaller and more cold hardy (up to zone 6 or 7) than sasanqua, but offers the same profusion of gorgeous medium-sized blooms. The October Magic® series is a Green Nurseries introduction offered through the Southern Living Plant Collection. This series represents a great improvement over the species, with plants that are more vigorous, disease resistant, and that continue the fall blooming season later into the winter. October Magic® Rose is unique in the series for its very upright columnar habit of growth, which lends itself to being pruned in a pillar rose form, the spire of coral red color adding a bright exclamation point in the garden! Like other Camellias, October Magic® Rose will tolerate a wide variety of soil conditions, but they really thrive in organically rich, acidic soil. Their shape tends to be naturally beautiful and relatively compact, making pruning unnecessary. If you choose to prune, do so in very early spring before the buds have formed. Broken shade is ideal: it will tolerate full sun well, but only if it stays well watered. Zones 7 to 9. read more

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
