NEW PLANTS FOR 2005

HYDRANGEA "BIG DADDY"

Incredible 12-14" flowerheads are the hallmark of this charming hydrangea. Pink in alkaline soils and blue in acidic soil. "Big Daddy" offers trouble free garden grouping or commands attention just as an accent plant. Each gigantic flowerhead is composed of masses of tightly clustered florets that radiate bright color. Perfect for fresh and dried arrangements, "Big Daddy" will add intrigue and romance to the garden from early summer through fall...an especially long bloom time for a hydrangea. Dark-green, glossy leaved shrub with sturdy branching habits. Easy to grow. Reaches 5-6' high and wide in no time, making a lovely accent for the front yard, along the driveway, or in large patio containers.

Available at Greenscape Gardens in mid May.

COLEUS KONG SERIES

Think of this series as the 'King of Coleus'. 'Kong' coleus are truly unique, with large leaves that can span 9 inches in length by 6 inches in width. 'Kong' coleus will thrive in morning sun, filtered all day sun, or partial shade. 'Kong' coleus is not a full sun coleus. These coleus make a statement. Grouping 3-4 plants together in a patio container, and you have a tremendous conversation piece all summer long.

Hopefully available this spring at Greenscape Gardens.
