The first (and we feel the best) reblooming Azalea. Finally, we have an evergreen plant that provides lots of color. Unlike traditional Azaleas, Encores like full sun. They are also more disease resistant. We divided them into 2 groups with 4 colors in each, based on their mature size.

Mophead hydrangeas got their name from the big "mop" of flowers. They prefer light  shade. They are the most popular "family" of hydrangea. They usually bloom in late May from the "old" wood. They rebloom throughout the Summer on the "new" wood. Because of this, you can be assured that they will flower even after a hard Winter. Do not trim them too low to the ground, or you will have fewer flowers next year. They also take the hot summer sun better than most other "mophead" hydrangeas. It is the only "family" that the color can be changed from Pink to Blue by the soil acidity.


There are several different "families" of Hydrangea with very different characteristics. We have the 4 commonly cultivated "families" listed below:

Bobo dwarf Little Lime C

Panicle Hydrangea like the full, hot sun. They are extremely hardy & very easy to grow. We now have some new dwarf varieties that are winners. Panicle hydrangeas start out with pure white flowers in June to July. The flowers then age to a pink in late summer & some finish with bronze, red in the fall. They make excellent dried flowers. These hydrangeas are garanteed to flower. 

Hydrangea (Snow Ball)

Also called "Annabelle type" these hydrangea like lots of sunlight. This is one of the oldest cultivaed types of hydrangea, but there are some exciting new varieties. They are very hardy and can be trimmed back almost to the ground.

Wee White

Hydrangea (Oakleaf)

When you see the deeply disected leaves of this "family" of hydrangeas, you will know how it got its name. Oakleaf Hydrangeas prefer partial shade, but will adapt to full sun or full shade. Their flower is alot like the Panicle hydrangea. The Flowers are White in the spring and then change to rse in the fall. They are the only family of hydrangeas to get a nice red fall color. They are also the most deer proof of all hydrangeas.

Cytisus-Lena Cytisus All Gold

Scotch Broom

Wow! That's the typical response when a scotch broom is blooming. In May, they're all color. Following their flowers, their stems grow long and look much like an ornamental grass. They grow 4' tall. We recommend a light trim after they bloom.

Knockout Roses have totally changed the way we look at roses. No more spraying! They are black spot resistant. On top of that, they bloom all-summer. Just trim them to 18" each Spring with a hedge trimmers. They only grow to 4' Tall & Wide. If you have worn out on roses, try these!

Here are the newest revolutionary spireas. Spireas are a very easy to grow plant. Double Play is a new series from Proven Winners that has the hardiness & flowers of the old varieties, but they also have beautiful foliage color. In fact, their foliage is so vibrant that some people plant them more for their foliage than their flower!
