Aronia

Aronia melanocarpa ‘Viking’ full sun  partial shade  drought tolerant

Deemed one of the best cultivars in the genus, this small trouble-free European introduction was destined to be an orchard plant until gardeners discovered its innate beauty and various merits. Glimmering amid glossy dark green foliage, abundant scented white flowers are followed by lustrous extra large purplish black berries, which remain throughout the winter as much appreciated fodder for the birds, especially early spring-feeding robins, or make tasty nutritious additions to pies and jellies. ‘Viking’s pleasing deciduous habit ends the season blazing with vivid red autumn leaves, withstands drought plus most pests and seldom needs pruning.

Blooms April-May

Size: 3' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 3.

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.
