Planters’ Choice 2015 Wholesale Price and Reference Guide is ready!
Our cover picture for 2015 is the fall blooming Blue Mist Shrub (Caryopteris x clandonensis) ‘Longwood Blue’. Ours are grown right here in Newtown along with two others – ‘Dark Knight’ and ‘Worcester Gold’. It’s a shrub that should be used more often in mass or as a hedge. It was selected by Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania for its upright habit, long bloom time and awesome silvery green foliage. They’ve used them effectively for lining a narrow allee backed by standard PeeGee Hydrangeas. It’s as simple as it is beautiful. Why not give them a try this year – we have a good supply in 2 gallon containers in both sales yards ready when you are!
Besides the extensive cultural information provided in the catalog some new features include a list of new offerings like the perennial Kirengeshoma palmata- Yellow Wax Bells plus a Tree Planting Guide, always helpful! So keep your eyes out for the 2015 Catalog in your mailbox. Can’t wait? Stop by and pick up your copy soon!
