How perfect is this compact hardy shrub to light up a darker part of the garden .. and I mean darker also in the sense to be a foil against dark plants and shrubs not only the lighting !
I love this little guy : ) because I love lemon candy ?? wink wink
There is also "Physocarpus Carmel Candy" .. is this getting on your sweet tooth nerve yet ?
.. I just couldn't find a picture on the net for it .. but it has all the same attributes of these new compact fully coloured shrubs .. with carmel being the key descriptive to its colour .. I am going "yum yum" thinking about how pretty it must be !
More candy please !
Physocarpus Burgundy Candy from the "Gumdrop" line .. how is this for a foil ?
Rich burgundy colour all season with white flowers in Spring .. now that has got to look gorgeous!
Compact and ... mildew resistant .. which can be an issue with ninebark I have found , most years not bad but you can always have a year when it is a pain ! This little guy is a fighter of it!
Physocarpus Opulifolius Ruby Spice (ok .. not so much a candy but think of it as a wonderful spice ?) .. it is a little larger than the previous two but it has amazing pink flowers in Spring on top of this gorgeous colour foliage .. and you can make it a container shrub too !!
Double Delights Wedding Gown hydrangea .. I know I should not get any more hydrangea but after stumbling on a few I am totally STUCK !
Earlier to bloom than other hydrangea and it reblooms all the way up till frost ! It is compact and low maintenance with beautiful white double blooms against dark green foliage .. a beauty in your shade garden or in a container .. now how great is that !!
