Chaenomeles x superba ‘Crimson and Gold’ full sun  partial shade  shade lover  new plant

Coveted for its close-knit habit and galvanizing deep crimson-red flowers which flaunt showy golden anthers, this bold cultivar has been gracing gardens since 1939. Plentiful cup-shaped blooms are borne on naked twigs well before the lustrous dark green cloak of deciduous foliage appears. ‘Crimson and Gold’s low spreading, more easily managed habit can be espaliered against a wall, while its perfumed greenish yellow fruit makes a zesty addition to pies, jelly and lemonade.

Blooms March–April

Size: 2' 0"–3' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

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.
