  • Reblooming Shrubs: Get More Mileage in the Garden

    Shrubs are the foundation plants of the landscape--they're what connects the lawn at ground level to the trees above our heads. They fill the space in between and serve as anchors for foundation plantings around the house. Often they are overlooked or chosen simply because they will top out at a particular size, or because they can be trimmed into a hedge. They're not always chosen for their spectacular blooms or the pizzazz they can add to the garden, which is a shame. If you choose shrubs wisely you can enjoy as colorful flowers all summer long from shrubs as you can from flowering annuals.

    And--bonus--you don't have to re-plant shrubs every year!

    To get the most bang for your buck, plant reblooming shrubs. Here are some of our favorites.

    Reblooming Shrubs from ShrubSource

    Lo & Behold® Blue Chip Buddleia

    Lo & Behold® Blue Chip Buddleia

    This is one of our favorite little shrubs. You can plant it as a border plant in landscape beds or as a specimen plant in the perennial garden. Lo & Behold® Blue Chip Buddleia is small enough to serve as a thriller plant in a large container, or as a stand-alone specimen in a smaller container.  It blooms continuously throughout the summer, attracts butterflies and hummingbirds, and is deer-resistant.

    Bloom-A-Thon® Lavender Azalea

    You can enjoy azalea blooms throughout the entire season with Bloom-A-Thon® Lavender Azaleas planted in your shrub border or landscape bed. These shrubs have evergreen foliage and bloom on old growth. You can lightly prune after flowering, but they are rather compact in their growth habits so they need little pruning.

    These are the perfect plants for your shade gardens. They need some sunlight, but prefer not to bake in hot afternoon sun.

    Let's Dance® Rhapsody Blue Hydrangea

    Let's Dance® Rhapsody Blue Hydrangea blooms with huge pom poms of flowers on a compact plant. The flowers are naturally pink but can be turned blue by lowering the pH of the soil. This Bigleaf Hydrangea blooms on new and old growth, so it's virtually impossible to cut off the flowers.

    It also ensures that you'll enjoy big and beautiful flowers throughout the summer and into fall.

    Sonic Bloom™ Pearl Weigela

    Sonic Bloom™ Pearl Weigela is a gorgeous flowering specimen plant that blooms from early spring through frost. Weigela plants are another shrub that is underutilized in the landscape, and it's a shame because few other flowering shrubs provide such a showy bloom for so long.

    This fast-growing, trouble-free shrub can be pruned back after the first spring bloom to control size and encourage re-blooming.

    Bloomerang® Dark Purple Syringa 

    Bloomerang® Dark Purple Syringa is a re-blooming lilac. Yes-you read that correctly! You can now enjoy the fragrance and beauty of lilacs all summer long. This lilac has a compact growth habit, topping out at 4-5 feet in height, so every garden has room for one (or three)!

  • Understanding Hydrangea Choices

    Hydrangeas are some of the most beloved garden shrubs, but are also among the least understood. Does the Hydrangea bloom on new growth or old growth? Should you prune it in the spring, summer, or fall? Why is it pink when it is supposed to be blue?

    Before we can answer the questions about pruning and color, it helps to understand a bit about the types of Hydrangeas you can buy.

    Hardy Hydrangea

    Limelight HydrangeaMany Hydrangea shrubs set flower buds in the fall for a bloom the next spring. This means that the flowers have to live through cold weather, not be pruned at the wrong time, and survive spring temperature swings.

    The Hardy Hydrangea group is newer but much beloved because these shrubs form flowering buds at the beginning of the summer. It is almost impossible not to enjoy a gorgeous bloom from these shrubs each year.

    These shrubs grow well in full sun to partial shade in zones 3-9 and have flower clusters in shades of pink and white. The popular Limelight Hydrangea is part of this group.

    Lacecap Hydrangea

    Lacecap hydrangeaLacecap Hydrangeas are so named because of their flowers. Typical Hydrangea flowers with large petals or bracts form a ring around smaller lacy flowers to create a unique and beautiful bloom. These plants bloom on old wood, so do not prune after August.

    Plants can be leggy when you purchase them, so spend some time pinching back the shrubs to achieve a full, branching growth habit.

    Lacecap Hydrangeas grow best in gardens in zones 5-9. They are susceptible to cold weather, so take care to plant in a protected spot. Most Lacecaps reach heights of 2-4 feet and flower in shades of pink and white.

    Mophead Hydrangea

    Let's Dance® Blue JanglesEveryone loves Mophead Hydrangeas. In fact, when you picture a Hydrangea flower, you're probably picturing a Mophead. They have the large, pom-pom sized flowers in shades of white, pink, blue, or purple. They're popular as part of bridal bouquets and wedding flowers.

    The flower color of many of these plants is dependent on the pH of the soil where they live. Alkaline or neutral soils will produce pink blooms and acidic soils will produce blue blooms.

    Mophead Hydrangeas grow well in zones 5 – 9 and will produce well in sun to partial shade. They need moist soil and bloom in mid summer through late fall.

    Mountain Hydrangea

    Mountain hydrangeaMountain Hydrangeas give lots of flowers from a little package. These small wonders are 2-3 feet in height and spread with lacy purplish-white blooms. Gardeners with limited space love these petite powerhouse bloomers. The small shrubs are covered in flowers from summer through fall.

    Currently we offer two varieties for sale. They both grow well in full sun to partial shade. They rebloom throughout the summer, including on new growth so you can't possibly cut off all of the flowers.

    Perfect for landscape beds and containers!

    Oakleaf Hydrangea

    hydrangea_gatsby_gal

    Oakleaf Hydrangeas are native summer-blooming shrubs that truly stand out in the landscape.

    Unlike other Hydrangeas, Oakleaf Hydrangeas need drier soil in order to thrive. Do you have a woodland garden? It isn't complete without at least one Oakleaf Hydrangea.

    Oakleaf Hydrangeas are hardy in zones 5 – 9 with average to dry soil. The average height at maturity is 5 – 6 feet while some varieties can get as tall as 10 feet.

    Don't miss the new "Gatsby's" series Oakleaf Hydrangeas. Gatsby's Star™ Oakleaf Hydrangea has truly stunning star-shaped flowers.

    Smooth Hydrangea

    Invincibelle™ Spirit HydrangeaThis large and lovely Hydrangea has pink blooms at the end of erect stems. It is a rebloomer and flowers on new wood, so you can't cut off the flowers.

    Hardy in zones 3-9. Prune after flowering or in the early spring if you need to control size.

    How about Flower Color?

    A big mystery of Hydrangeas is flower color. How do you get blue flowers if you live in the west or pink flowers in the east? Some hydrangea varieties' flowers are not affected by soil pH, but others are. Read the description of the plant you're buying to see if the one you want is affected by pH. Soil pH affects the amount of aluminum the plants can take up and that affects the color. More aluminum = more of a blue color. Aluminum is more available to plants at a pH of 5.2-5.5. You can lower the soil pH by adding Aluminum Sulfate. You can raise the pH by adding garden lime.

    White hydrangea flowers will not turn colors. Only pink or blue flowers can be changed. (And then, only some of those flowers can be changed.)

  • Why Won't My Hydrangeas Bloom?

    Screen Shot 2014-03-24 at 8.28.30 PMWe get more questions from people about why their hydrangeas aren't blooming than about almost anything else. When hydrangeas bloom there's nothing prettier. When they don't, there's almost nothing more frustrating.

    The secret to success with hydrangeas is fairly straightforward:

    Know what type of hydrangea you have and care for it accordingly.

    There are many different types of hydrangeas (23 species), including hardy, mophead (also known as bigleaf), oakleaf, smooth, lacecap etc. and so on. It is helpful if you know what type of hydrangea you have so that you will know whether it blooms on old or new growth.

     

    Hydrangea coming out of dormancyOld growth: Last year's growth (that survived the winter). In the picture, right, the old growth is brown and looks like dead twigs. You can just see the green leaves of buds breaking at the tips of some of the stems.

    New growth: This year's growth. The new growth is green. You can see entire new stems sprouting at the bottom of the shrub near the ground.

    A shrub that blooms on old growth will not bloom if you cut off the old growth in the winter or spring prior to bloom.

    IMG_8749

    When a shrub looks like nothing but sticks (and everything else has already leafed out), the temptation is great to hack it all back to the new green leaves sprouting from near the ground. DON'T DO IT! Let the plant leaf out. Once it is nice and full and green, THEN you can assess damage.

    The twig pictured, left, most likely has some winterkill on it. The buds on the top of the twig have turned brown and/or fallen off. About four inches down, the buds have started to break.

    I won't prune the dead out of this shrub until is is nice and fully leafed out.

    So, just because you managed to resist the urge to prune your hydrangea back to the ground when the weather warmed up doesn't mean you're in the clear.

    Even if the entire plant isn't killed back to the ground during the winter, the flower buds can be damaged by late spring freezes. Bigleaf hydrangeas (mopheads), in particular, suffer from this type of damage. If the plants break dormancy during a warm spell that is followed by a cold snap, flower buds can be damaged, which will cause the plants to have fewer flowers. (Or no flowers, depending on how significant the damage is.)

    Other Issues Disrupting Blooming

    Let's Dance® Blue JanglesIn addition to cold damage, improper pruning and lack of light can affect hydrangea blooms. The best time to prune any plant is right after it flowers. If you prune right after flowering, you can't cut off the flowers. Hydrangeas are no exception.

    Even hydrangeas that bloom on old and new growth (such as the Let's Dance® series-Blue Jangles pictured, right) are safe to prune right after flowering. If a hydrangea blooms on new growth, it's possible that you could prune in early spring, but it is safer to prune after blooming.

    Sunlight is another contributing factor in lack of bloom. Most hydrangeas grow best in partial to full shade, and need more shade the hotter the area where they're planted. Panicle hydrangeas, such as the Limelight Hydrangea, need more sun in order to flower. They don't like full hot afternoon sun, but plant them in the shade flowering will be greatly reduced.

  • Loving Lilacs

    Are there any spring-blooming shrubs with as much tradition, as many memories attached as the fragrant-flowered lilac? When you drive through the country, you can see lilac shrubs blooming around tumbled down old porch steps. You'll sometimes see lilacs standing at either side of old cemetery gates. But the lilacs we have at Shrub Source aren't your grandma's lilacs. They are re-bloomers, compact-growers, and more resistant to problems that plague older varieties. Here are our new favorite fragrant flowering shrubs.

    Bloomerang® Purple Lilac (Syringa)

    Bloomerang-purple

    Bloomerang® Purple Syringa is a compact blooming shrub reaching a mature height of 4-5 feet and spread of 5-6 feet. The shrubs are covered with flowers in the early spring, but the plant re-blooms in the summer and keeps blooming until frost. They're hardy in zones 3-7 and are resistant to powdery mildew and root rot.

    Bloomerang® Dark Purple Lilac

    Screen Shot 2014-03-18 at 9.02.57 PM

    This deer-resistant re-blooming lilac starts the show in early spring with tightly-closed plum purple flower buds that open to fragrant flowers beloved by butterflies and hummingbirds. Keep these shrubs looking their best by giving them a light pruning after they bloom. Fertilize after the spring bloom to encourage reblooming later in the summer.

    Scent and Scensibilty™ Pink Lilac

    Scent and Scensibilty™ Pink

    A truly unique lilac, Scent and Scensibilty™ Pink Syringa, has a compact, mounding growth habit with a height of 2-3 feet and a spread of 4-6 feet. It grows best in full sun in moist, well-drained soil. It will re bloom sporadically throughout the summer, but not as reliably as the Bloomerang® lilacs.

    Lilac Care and Maintenance

    If you have older lilacs, the way to keep them blooming beautifully is through renewal pruning. This is the practice of removing one third of the old growth back to the ground each year.

    images

     

    Keeping lilacs pruned helps promote airflow and reduces problems with powdery mildew.

    Newer varieties benefit from light pruning for shape after the spring bloom and application of a liquid fertilizer. Always plant in full sun and well-drained soils to avoid problems with root rot.

    Deadhead (remove spent flowers after bloom) to encourage re-blooming.

    Still grows the vivacious lilac a generation after the door and lintel and the sill are gone, unfolding its sweet-scented flowers each spring, to be plucked by the musing traveller; planted and tended once by children's hands, in front-yard plots,--now standing by wall-sides in retired pastures, and giving place to new-rising forests;Mthe last of that stirp, sole survivor of that family.
    ~Henry David Thoreau

  • Early Blooms Get the Party Started!

    Many of the early blooming shrubs at Shrub Source are newer varieties of old favorites. Flowering quince, lilacs, azaleas, and forsythias factor into many a childhood memory. These are some of the first shrubs to bloom after a long winter. They welcome spring, indoors as forced branches and outdoors when they burst into color. These shrubs have the flowers that serve as centerpieces for Mother’s Day celebrations and graduation parties.

    If your garden doesn’t kick into gear until June, chances are good that you need a few early flowering shrubs to extend the season. Here are some of our favorites.

    Fantastically Fragrant

    Viburnum Spice Ball

    In warmer areas, Spice Ball Viburnum blooms as early as mid to late March. This is a specimen shrub to plant near your front door or back porch so that you can enjoy the wonderful scent of the flowers when it is in bloom.

    Unusual Beauty

    Calycanthus

    Calycanthus is a lesser-grown shrub, but one that everyone should make some room for, if possible. Dark burgundy flowers appear in greatest numbers during the spring, but the shrub will sporadically re-bloom throughout the summer. When not in bloom, glossy green leaves serve as an excellent foundation, screening, or backdrop plant in the landscape.

    Spring Cheer

    A few of the early bloomers are excellent for forcing. You can cut branches from these shrubs in February and bring them inside to put on a spectacular floral display long before the snow melts outside.

    Two of our favorites are forsythia and flowering quince.

    Older varieties of forsythia were huge and rangy, but newer varieties, such as Show Off™ Starlet are more compact growers. This one is also absolutely covered in blooms each spring.

    Forsythia Show Off Starlet

    Double Take™ Pink Storm Flowering Quince always gets lots of appreciative glances when it shows off hundreds of rose-like blooms when everything else in the landscape is still deep in winter slumber. Plus, the Double Take™ series are thorn-less. It cannot get any better than this.

    Double Take Pink Flowering Quince

    Don’t Forget Roses!

    Oso Easy Italian Ice RoseWe are big fans of the Oso Easy™ roses for their, you guessed it, easy care attributes. These are some of the latest of the early bloomers, but they fill the gap nicely between extreme earlybirds such as forsythia and the summer blooming hydrangeas and crape myrtles. These roses will also re-bloom throughout the summer. For unusual color in the garden, plant Oso Easy™ Italian Ice (pictured, yellow center with pink blushing petals), Oso Easy™ Cherry Pie (bright pink single flowers), and Oso Easy™ Paprika—with bright orange blooms.

     Maintenance Considerations

    IMG_1237

    Most of these plants are fairly low-maintenance, but timing on what little maintenance that's required is crucial. Here are some tips to keep early-flowering shrubs looking great!

    • Prune right after the plants are finished flowering in the spring. Early bloomers set flower buds for next year during the summer. If you prune them hard in late summer, you'll cut off all of the flowers. If you make no other change to your gardening habits, MAKE THIS CHANGE!
    • Fertilize after blooming. Most of the spring flowering shrubs will push new growth immediately after flowering. (Pruning can make this new growth bushier and fuller.) Fertilize shrubs with the proper fertilizer at the same time that you prune. (Azaleas, rhododendrons, and hollies all benefit from Holly-tone or holly fertilizers.)
    • Water shrubs after pruning. Whenever you do something that could stress a plant or require it to use more reserves than usual, it's a good idea to water it. (That is, unless you're having higher than usual rainfall.) So, after pruning and fertilizing, make sure to water!

    Following these tips will help you keep your early bloomers looking gorgeous!

  • Evergreens: Never-Ending Beauty

    ilex_berry_poppins If this winter has helped you realize nothing else, it’s that a few evergreens can go a long way in the garden. While the rest of the garden is barren and covered with snow, evergreens provide a respite for your eyes and a promise that everything else will, eventually leaf out.

    There are more reasons to plant evergreens beyond the fact that they have color when nothing else does. Here are some reasons why you’re going to want to make room in the garden for some new plants this year.

    Welcoming Wildlife

    ilex_berry_heavy_gold

    Development and construction have eliminated much of the naturally existing cover that wildlife, from birds to mammals to reptiles, rely on. You can make a big difference in the health of wildlife populations by planting trees and shrubs in the garden. While some birds need taller trees for nesting, a lot of favorite songbirds derive more benefit from eye-level cover from shrubs. Birds that have access to shelter will fledge (raise to maturity) more chicks. So, it’s not just food (in the form of berries) that shrubs with winter interest can provide. These plants also provide a welcoming home.

    Enjoyment Indoors and Out

    “Winter interest” doesn’t have to mean green leaves. The berries on deciduous hollies such as Berry Heavy ®, Berry Heavy® Gold, Berry Nice®, or Berry Poppins® are beautiful, in part, because they are the stars of the show, with no leaves to distract from the bright color.

     

    basketPorch pot with Evergreens

    The red twigs of Cornus Arctic Fire ™ make stunning and statuesque arrangements without any other flowers. They can also serve as the structure for more elaborate creations.

    Screen Shot 2014-03-04 at 4.29.45 PM

    You can use branches and twigs from these and other, evergreen, plants to make porch pots and floral arrangements all year long.

    Privacy and Screening

    Less exciting, but no less important is the important function evergreens have in creating natural privacy and screening. While putting up a fence is a faster way to block out your neighbors, a beautiful row of Thujas is nicer to look at.

    When planting a privacy screen, it’s better to go for Evergreens than deciduous shrubs, even shrubs with dense canopies, because you’ll lose some of the screening benefits in the winter when the shrubs lose their leaves. American Piller Thuja is one of our favorite evergreen shrubs for screening.

    Thuja-American Pillar

    You can plant close together and hedge the plants or allow them to grow to their natural conical shape.

    ilex_berry_heavy_gold

    Get the most out of limited space by planting shrubs with four season interest. These hardworking shrubs need to have lovely foliage, pretty flowers, interesting bark, or eye-catching fruits. Berry Heavy® Gold Ilex verticillata is a Winterberry Holly that has yellow-gold fruits in the late fall and early winter. At a mature height of 6 feet, these make excellent specimen shrubs.

     Castle Gold™ Ilex

    Ilex_Castle_Gold_2
