|SHRUB of the Week|
|30% Off Abelia ‘Kaleidoscope’|
$24.49 – 3 gal.
Bright and dramatic! That’s Abelia x grandiflora ‘Kaleidoscope’. The colorful variegated foliage features a green leaf edged by bright yellow with reds as the seasons change. Tubular blush/white flowers in summer and fall. Low-mounding and semi-evergreen, ‘Kaleidescope’ adds a beautiful splash of color anywhere – in small gardens or mass plantings. Prune lightly each spring to keep a tidy look. Plant in full sun. 2-2 ½’ tall x 3-3 ½’ wide. Zone 6-9. Beautiful plants! Limit 3 per customer while supplies last thru Thursday, March 15.
|PERENNIAL of the Week|
|Lamb's Ears ~ $6.99 – 1 gal.|
The velvet-like leaves of Lamb’s ears, Stachys byzantine, spread to form a soft, silver carpet. Pinkish flowers in early summer. Some gardeners keep the flowers trimmed to emphasize the ground cover effect of Lamb’s Ears. Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. A very tough plant, Lambs Ear is rabbit & deer-resistant, drought resistant, and can be planted near black walnuts. The fuzzy texture is a favorite addition to children’s gardens. Limit 3 per customer while supplies last thru Thursday, March 15.
| Spring bulbs lift our spirits in late winter when crocus begin blooming sometimes as early as January. Early daffodils, dwarf iris, and snowdrops soon follow. Late daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths extend the season into late spring. Summer bulbs like dahlias, gladiolus, tuberous begonias, cannas, lilies, caladiums, and several others provide color throughout summer and early fall. I like to plant them among perennials and I especially enjoy dahlias and gladiolus in bouquets.|
Bulbs (including rhizomes, tubers, and corms) are divided into two groups.
Spring-flowering bulbs bloom in the spring months but must be planted in the fall. Make a note on your October calendar to purchase and plant these bulbs then.
Summer-flowering bulbs bloom in summer and should be planted after the weather warms in mid/late spring. Purchase now for best selection and store in a cool, dry place until planting time. These bulbs don’t like the cool, wet soil of early spring and could decay if planted too early.
