Conjuring visions of dancing fairies, this enchanting Ericaceous gem is an intergeneric hybrid between Phyllodoce and Kalmiopsis, conceived at Hillier’s in the 1980s. Dainty deep pink urns nearly envelope a tidy low evergreen mound of compact dark green Heather-like foliage. With reddish stems and calyxes, ‘Sugar Plum’ offers a flowery summer encore, prospers in well-drained acidic soil and looks simply irresistible in the rockery, alpine garden or a treasured container.

Blooms May – June.

Size: 6' 0"–10' 0" high x 12"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
