Lemon Lace Vine
Fallopia aubertii Lemon Lace

Newly discovered by Bluebird Nursery staff member, Pam Bahns, this more refined, slower growing sport offers surprising accents of rich, ruby-red stems and petioles amid a dazzling, golden foliar drape. Summer brings chalk white flowers in cheerful frothy masses and papery, pink-flushed white fruit.

Shedding a sprightly brilliance upon any lackluster garden setting, the delicate, deciduous Lemon Lace Vine can thread its way up a pole in the mixed border, illuminate a fence or intertwine with a Clematis. Large band.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 15' 0"–20' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 5.

Fallopia japonica var. compacta

Don’t let this species’ humdrum name or slow start put you off. Although it emerges from the ground late in the spring, Fallopia japonica var. compacta reaches full height rather quickly.

Panicles of miniature white and pinkish red flowers, whose bicolored quality makes them sparkle, dress up the bushy visage. Rounded, ripple-edged and leathery, the attractive dark green leaves are held by crimson petioles, and furnish a brilliant yellow fanfare once the weather begins to cool.

Blooms late August–early October.

Size: 4' 0" high x 4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Sterling Spring blooming shrubs, plus head-turning Perennials.

Here’s the tall and short of it…

Sterling spring blooming shrubs, all dressed in classy green leaves and crisp white flowers. Viburnum plicatum ‘Summer Snowflake’ is the largest of our featured shrubs, fashioning graceful somewhat horizontal branches adorned with snowy lace caps. Cultivated since 1868, well-loved Spiraea x vanhouttei makes a shapely low maintenance addition to sunny mixed borders, while smaller-statured Deutzia gracilis ‘Nikko' offers a galaxy of dainty white blooms perfect for the rockery, nestled along steps or in a container.

Head turning Perennials

Nearly 65” of rain coupled with chilly spring days spawned a remarkable surge of lush foliar growth, plus spectacular long-lasting flowers in our nursery & garden this year. Spring is always such an exciting time as we watch the multitude of leaves, buds and blooms that seemingly unfurl over night plus the numerous new shoots stretching skyward. Dicentra ‘Gold Heart’s delicate golden foliage glows in dappled shady niches, while the dark leaves of Eupatorium ‘Chocolate’, Astrantia ‘Moulin Rouge's exquisite domes, and the richly colored Sedum ‘Jose Aubergine’ promise to turn more than a few heads in your garden. Perhaps you could let Campanula ‘Blue Waterfall’ cascade down your garden steps, or brighten up a sunny bed with Geum ‘Prinses Juliana’. We hope you’ll make room for a few of these shrubs & perennials. Our extensive display borders which surround the nursery are now open through Colombus Day weekend. Our first guided Saturday Stroll is June 24th., followed by July 15th & 29th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
