Blue Jangles C Big Easy

Mophead hydrangeas got thier 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. What make the Let's Dance Series outstanding is that 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. This is the "family" of hydrangeas that are used for Easter. It is the only "family" that the color can be changed from Pink to Blue by the soil acidity


Although "Hydrangea" brings the picture of a lovely flower to mind, it can also be confusing. That is because 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. The old varieties grew to about 8' tall, but we have some new dwarf varieties. Panicle hydrangeas start out with pure white flowers in June to July. The flowers then age to a pink in late summer & finish with bronze, red in the fall. They make excellent dried flowers.

Hydrangea (Snow Ball)

Lacecap Invincibelle Incediball


Grows 3' Tall & Wide

A reblooming hydrangea with a lacecap flower! A very hardy plant & a strong rebloomer.


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 to the ground.


Grows 4' Tall & Wide

Incrediball gets its name from its incredible balls of flowers. Its pure white flowers can reach 12" across! It does not flop like most snowball hydrangeas.


Invincibelle Spirit

Grows 4' Tall & Wide

A breakthrough: Pink Snowball hydrangeas! Invincibelle Spirit boasts large pink flowers on strong steps that will not flop. It also reblooms very well!



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. 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.




All Gold


Helmond's Pillar

Helmond's Pillar Barberry

Grows 4 1/2' Tall & 1 1/2' Wide

Helmond's Pillar offers the burgundy color of the popular Crimson Pygmy in a taller upright habit. It makes a great centerpiece in a small garden.



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. They are also easier to trim. Just trim them with a hedge trimmers. But, you won't have to trim them much. They only grow 3-4' Tall & Wide. If you have wore out on roses, try these!


We also carry the traditional Hybrid Tea Roses. Because the varieties change seasonally, we recommend you stop by to pick the color you want.

Here is another category of plant that Proven Winners has revived. Spireas are a very hardy plant, but the only bloom for about 6 weeks. 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!
