Oh the fabulous hydrangea! Of all the flowering shrubs this one has always been a show stopper but in 2016 this is not just your grandmas pink or blue hydrangea anymore.

Blue Hydrangea Flowers

I am not sure what I am more excited about, the ever blooming varieties that just go all summer or the new multi coloured flowers that change colour over their bloom time, Hydrangeas are blowing me away right now.

There are so many new varieties and colours that will make you stop in your tracks, come on into the nursery to see what we have for you.

As you may have guessed from their name, Hydrangeas love water, plant in a moist but well drained space, spring is a great time for planting, water the roots deep down to help them to establish in the garden. Once again I highly recommend soaker hoses if you do not have irrigation, this is a great way to reduce your water bill and still deep water your plants.

 

Having said that there are certain things to know about the Hydrangeas we love. Here are the top Hydrangea questions I have had over the years.

Hydrangea Types

Are There Different Types of Hydrangeas?

Yes, there are several types of Hydrangeas with flower colours ranging from white to shades of pink to blue. The classic variety is called Hydrangea macrophylla and can have either the big Mophead type flower or a flattened lacecap-like bloom. Lace cap varieties are great for attracting butterflies, hummingbirds and bees. The Mountain Hydrangea, or Hydrangea serrata typically has a white lacecap-like flower. Pannicle Hydrangeas, or Hydrangea paniculata has large white to creamy white flowers in conical shapes. Hydrangea arborescens or Smooth Hydrangeas typically have large white blooms. Finally, the Oakleaf Hydrangea, Hydrangea quercifolia has attractive white flowers but also offers stunning fall foliage colour.

Endless Summer Hydrangeas

What Is An Endless Summer Hydrangea?

Most Hydrangeas bloom on old wood. In recent years, plant breeders have introduced new varieties that bloom on both new and old wood. They are often called “ReBloomers”. The end result is a plant the produces more flowers and blooms for longer through the season. It also makes them less vulnerable to late winter, flower bud damaging frosts. Endless Summer was the first of the group but new ones like Twist and Shout, Let's Dance Moonlight and Blushing Bride are also available. More information is available on the Endless Summer Hydrangea Website

Should I Fertilize My Hydrangea?

In most cases, yes. For established plants, feed your plant a fertilizer with a high middle number in early spring just as new growth begins. This will create larger and bigger flowers. For new plants, apply a Bonemeal into the planting hole or use a liquid transplant fertilizer when you water.

Changing Hydrangea Flower Colour

How Do I Change The Colour of My Hydrangea?

Hydrangeas react to the availability of aluminum in your soil. If you want pink flowers, add lime to your soil once a year, the lime blocks the plant from absorbing aluminum. Looking for blue flowers? Add Aluminum Sulphate in water and water the soil around your Hydrangea. Be patient, this process will take 2-3 seasons to achieve the colour switch. White flowering types do not change colour.

Where Can I Plant My Hydrangea?

Most Hydrangeas want morning sun and afternoon shade, with the exception of Peegees which benefit from full sun. Late afternoon sun is too strong for many Hydrangeas and can burn both the leaves and flowers. Full shade may result in a lack of blooms, make sure your hydrangea gets at least 4 hours of morning light to grow strong. A location with part sun to part shade is ideal.

Pink Hydrangea Blooms

Why Is My Hydrangea Not Blooming?

Back away from the pruners! The most common reason for no blooms is over pruning or pruning at the wrong time of year. Some Hydrangeas bloom on new growth and some bloom on old growth, if your Hydrangea is not blooming, you may have pruned the flower buds. Hydrangeas really do not require a great deal of pruning but if you are pruning there are guidelines depending on the variety you choose. Deadhead your Hydrangea to encourage repeat blooming.

Another common cause of poor blooms is an early spring cold snap. As many varieties bloom on old wood, a late frost can damage the flower buds.

Your Hydrangea will also produce more and better blooms with a yearly application of fertilizer with a higher middle number

Hydrangea Cityline Rio

How Do I Prune My Hydrangea?

The correct method to prune Hydrangeas depends on which type you have.

ReBlooming Varieties

The Hydrangeas require very little pruning and will keep you in blooms all season long. You should only prune to remove dead wood.

Hydrangeas That Bloom On Old Wood

These shrubs should only be pruned to remove dead wood or to manage size. As they bloom on old wood, a severe pruning can remove next years flower buds. If you must prune, do so after flowering. Hydrangeas that bloom on old wood include:

  • Big Leaf Hydrangea - Hydrangea macrophylla
  • Mountain Hydrangea - Hydrangea serrata
  • Oakleaf Hydrangea - Hydrangea quercifolia

Hydrangeas That Bloom On New Wood

For these varieties, prune in late winter or early spring. Varieties blooming on new wood include:

  • Pannicle Hydrangea- Hydrangea paniculata
  • Smooth Hydrangea - Hydrangea arboresens

If you have any other questions about hydrangeas, please feel free to drop by Arts Nursery and ask! We'd be happy to help!

“And as, when all the summer trees are seen So bright and green, The Holly leaves a sober hue display Less bright than they, But when the bare and wintry woods we see, What then so cheerful as the Holly-tree?” (Robert Southey, The Holly Tree).

Holly, Ilex Shrub

We have a new crop of stunningly lovely Holly trees or should I say shrubs! All the beauty in a more compact plant. Holly’s are lovely lush anchors to your garden, content to patiently wait in the background until BAM…the last late fall blast of wind blows the leaves off the deciduous trees and voila…a serene, sparkling, winter classic emerges. Glossy deep green leaves artistically arranged clusters of rich Christmas red berries what is not to love? Holly has oft been viewed as a larger estate tree, something for the back of the large border of property.

Female Hollies produce berries and you will need a male plant in the vicinity. The spines of many of varieties of Holly are a definite hazard!! Anyone that has had to garden under one gloves or not or has run barefoot by one can vouch for the reason. Add to that a slow but inexorable outward and upward growth like the Pillsbury Dough Boy in Ghostbusters and if you live in a small yard you have yourself a plant monster on your hands. Granted a super slow growing and festive monster, but a monster all the same. Not so with these little beauties! I thought I would have to wait until I had more property to eventually get a majestic Holly and then I laid eyes on these!! I’ve fallen in love. Move on over deciduous shrubs…Holly’s coming to town. The are a number of beliefs about Holly, in that it fends off lightning, promotes long life and good dreams and of course one of my favorites, is that if you plant a prickly leaved Holly by your house, the men of the household will have good fortune and be in charge. If you plant a smooth and variegated Holly the women of the household will have good fortune and be in charge. Having both plants signifies a balanced household.

Holly trees and shrubs adore a moist but well draining, humic soil. Most Hollies prefer full sun to part shade, while some of the variegated ones will give the best show with more sun. They can even take some sheltered container planting so if you wanted a small one in a pot for year round interest…and have a place against the house out of the wind we’ve got your Holly! Here are some of our newest nursery arrivals:

Castle Spire Holly

Ilex x meserveae ‘Hachfee’ or ‘Castle Spire’ Holly

Glossy smaller fresh glossy spinach green toothed leaves. This is a great columnar form to add to the shrub border or even for a container. This Holly grows to about 8 to 12 feet high by about 3-4 feet in width. Because Hollies are very slow growing and because I use it every winter, I will put it in a ½ oak barrel sized pot Centered by my entrance. It is hardy to about Zone 6. It is a female variety so you can plant with a male nearby to make berries.

Honey maid Holly

Ilex x ‘Honey Maid’ or ‘Honey Maid’ Holly

Is a glossy, lightly toothed, blue green holly with creamy white edging. The new growth emerges a soft burgundy. Absolutely stunning in berry! This is also a female variety and is hardy to about zone 6-7. It grows to about 8 feet high and 5 feet wide.

Red Beauty Holly

Ilex x ‘Rutzan’ or ‘Red Beauty’ Holly

Is a glossy fresh green tooth leaved female variety with blood red berries. New growth is brushed with burgundy. It has a tightly pyramidal to columnar form. A great anchor for the back of the garden or as a more formal clipped form. It is hardy to zone 6 and grows 7-10 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide.

Santas Delight Holly

Ilex aquifolium ‘Sadezan’ or ‘Santa’s Delight’ English Holly

Is a lovely variegated form with dark green toothed, glossy leaves with a wide creamy white margin which takes on a pink hue with the colder weather. With the bright red berries it is definitely and eye catcher and a very useful one in arrangements. This variety will grow 10-12 tall and 6 feet wide and is hardy to zone 6. A male English holly in the vicinity is preferred for best berry set.

Blue Girl, Blue Boy Holly, Berri Magic Holly

Ilex x meserveae ‘Blue Girl and Blue Boy’ or Berri-Magic Kids Holly

This solves the challenge of pollinator by planting both male and female plant together. Blue Girl and Blue Boy holly are glossy blue green toothed hollies with blood red berries and purple black stems. They are hardy to zone 6 and grow to about 6-8 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide.

Scallywag Holly

Ilex x ‘MonNieves’ or ‘Scallywag’ Holly is a lovely little compact male form with small, closely toothed oval leaves ranging in colour to deep glossy green to purple bronze and burgungy tones in colder weather. It is hardy to zone 6 and grows only 4 feet tall by 3 feet wide. A great way to solve the pollinating issue for many Hollies.

Pop by Art's Nursery to take a look at these new intro’s in person as well as many of our other varieties. They are a great plant, not without challenges but pretty darn useful as both a design anchor and as a cut green. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at 604.882.1201

Deciduous flowering shrubs are the workhorses of the garden.  They are the infill of the garden, the middle part or depth of a good design and very, very necessary.   Flowering evergreen shrubs are lovely, but in my opinion there are few that will stop you in your tracks to watch them at their height of glory like one that has one season less to make magic in.

Many of these are old fashioned, and many have only one season of interest, but oh... what a season.  Here are my top 4 must have deciduous flowering shrubs for the garden:

Philadelphus

Philadelphus

Mock orange, not to be confused with Choysia or Mexican Mock Orange which is also a pretty nice plant.  I have the golden leaved Philadelphus  at the front of my house.  You’ll want to plant this one by a window that opens, the fragrance of the soft white single or double flowers which generally open in June is my favorite of all time.  It is a medium vaselike shrub growing to about 8 feet high by about 6  feet wide with soft grass green or gold leaves depending on the variety.

It prefers a part shade area (protection from the hot afternoon sun is a must have for the single flowering golden leaved varieties), with humic, well draining soil.  They are often not pretty when you get them, not sure if its because they are constricted to a small pot or perhaps too exposed to the wind but once you dig them into the garden and they can stretch and breath (very scientific eh?), you will be amazed at how sturdy, versatile, beautiful and oh my how fragrant.

In fact, if it wasn’t raining right now I’d be typing this on my front steps near my Philadelphus.  There are a few varieties out there that aren’t scented and though lovely it’s like being handed a cupcake with no icing.  Sad.  Depending on variety, Philadelphus can be hardy to zone 4.

Spirea

Spirea

Another mighty workhorse to the garden is the Spirea.  There are many forms and a stunning array of leaf colours and sizes from the sprawling fountain like grandeur of the Spriea ‘Tor' in full bloom -  to the compact 1-2 punch of the Spirea ‘Lime Mound’ with its chartreuse leaves and pink flowers at the end of June and beginning of July.

I am tickled pink with the leaf colour on these never mind that they flower, and are actually softly fragrant.  ‘Little Princess’ literally gets covered in pink blooms which are usually sporting a number of content looking butterflies.  I am starting to wonder if they come with the plant.

This group of shrubs are easy to care for and like an average, well drained soil in sun to part shade.  If you get the lighter leaved varieties consider placing them out of a high wind area or some protection from afternoon sun to avoid burned leaf edges.

I have limited room but have a Spirea ‘Goldflame’ which I coppice right to the ground in later winter so that it remains a tidy little pom pom of a plant.   The size of spirea ranges from about 3-4 feet by about 3-4 feet.  'Bridal Veil' and some of the others are a bit larger (10 feet high by 20 feet wide) so make sure you choose the right spirea for you.  Most are hardy to zone 3.

Weigela

Weigela

This is a plant that I have always had in my garden in one form or another.  When I was little I made a fort out of this sprawling vase shaped shrub and listened to the bees when it was in full bloom.  Honey bees, bumble bees, humming birds and butterflies love this plant.  So do I.

The trumpet shaped flowers are glorious and happen over the course of 2 to 3 weeks in June-July but oh what a show.  If you are lucky, they will take a bit of a break and bloom a bit in late summer.   There are now burgundy leaved varieties and green leaved striped with chartreuse and some edged in gold and one with a lovely completely green gold leaf  to extend the season of interest.  There are some lower growing but they can attain a height of about 12-15 feet by about 5-6 feet.  These shrubs appreciate a light pruning after blooming so that next years blooms have time to form on the new wood.

Rubidor and ‘Wine and Roses’ are two that come to mind with excellent leaf colour as well.  Do use the golds and burgundy leaved plants sparingly in your garden to give a punch of colour.  Filling your garden full of golds and burgundy and variegated shrubs will just create visual unrest.

Physocarpus - Ninebark

Physocarpus

Ninebark, as it is also known, is an upright shrub to create visual interest and texture at the back of the border both in summer and with the shredding bark in the winter.  There are green leaved, gold leaved and multihued burgundy and chocolate leaved varieties.

The blossoms are held in corymbs and are usually white to slightly pinkish white.  Some are red in bud and white in bloom followed by brown or red seed heads to extend interest as in ‘Center Glow’.  The average growth rate is about 6-8 feet by about 5-6 feet and there are a number of dwarf varieties if you have limited space.  They favour sun but will take part shade and average, well draining soils will suffice.

Prune by thinning out some (no more than 1/3)  of the branches to the ground creating an open  habit.  Most are hardy to zone 3.Physocarpus is a great shrub to provide colour and interest to the garden. It is available in both shrub and tree form.

Hibiscus syriacus - Rose of Sharon

Hibiscus syriacus – Rose of Sharon

This hardy form of hibiscus is always an eyecatcher.   Its blooms are exotic looking.  They are smaller single and double versions of the tropical hibiscus blossoms.  The bark is silvery grey and the leaves are grass green.  Be patient in the spring.  This late summer glory will be one of the last of your deciduous shrubs to leaf out.  In spite of its exotic look, this shrub is a tough cookie.  Plant in sun in average soil.  Most will grow to about 6-8 feet and will be about 5-6 feet high.   They are hardy to zone 5.

These are a few of the deciduous flowering shrubs that are worthwhile members of a strong garden design.  They are hardy, they are tough and they are a few of the workhorses of your garden.

Arts Nursery stocks a wide variety of deciduous shrubs year round. As always, call to confirm the availability of specific varieties as our selection changes frequently. If you have any questions, visit us in person or call 604.882.1201.

As a plant in our region, Japanese Barberries are highly underused. Very few plants offer the vivid colours, low maintenance and impenetrable thorns offered by these deciduous plants.

Barberry Concorde

Most forms of Berberis thunbergii are low growing deciduous shrubs with densely massed stems and small neatly rounded colourful leaves. Spines are prickly though not overally vicious. Small, almost insignificant brightly coloured flowers appear in spring.

The following are four Japanese Barberries that we find particularly attractive:

Rose Glow Japanese Barberry

Rose Glow Barberry

Berberis thunbergii ‘Rose Glow’

Graceful branching on this barberry makes it a wonderful hedge, barrier planting or single accent. Foliage is a deep rose-red glow over mottled white and green foliage in spring. Bright red berries in fall and winter. Deciduous. Best when planted in full sun in moist, but well drained soil. Slow grower to 5ft tall and 4ft wide. Hardy in zones 4-8.

Concorde Japanese Barberry

Concorde Japanese Barberry

Berberis thunbergii ‘Concorde’

This dense rounded barberry produces deep maroon purple foliage all season long. Blooms in late spring with small yellow flowers followed by bright red berries. Excellent for use as a container shrub, an edge or as a barrier. Deciduous. Best when planted in full sun in moist, but well drained soils. Hardy in zones 4-8. Slow growing to 18 inches tall and wide.

Sunsation Japanese Barberry

Sunsation Japanese Barberry

Berberis thunbergii ‘Monry’

A new compact dwarf form of Japanese barberry features bright golden yellow foliage sometimes offering an orange cast. Excellent colour contrast for other reddish-purple barberries or green leaved plants. Deciduous. Best when planted in full sun and moist, but well drained soils. Slow grower to 3-ft in height and width. Hardy in zones 4-8

Royal Burgundy Japanese Barberry

Royal Burgundy Barberry

Berberis thunbergii ‘Gentry’

An improved selection of barberry from ‘Crimson Pygmy’ with richer burgundy foliage colour and small velvety leaves that hold their colour through summer. Insignificant yellow flowers in spring. Foliage changes to a reddish black in the Fall. Thorny – makes a great barrier shrub. Deciduous. Grows in a dense mounded form, 2ft high and up to 3ft wide. Best when planted in full sun and moist, but well drained soils. Hardy in zones 4-8.

How to Grow Japanese Barberry

Barberries are easy to grow and thrive in most soil types. They are tolerant of heavy pruning and are useful as edges, hedges and barrier plantings. Pruning is best performed in winter when the plant is dormant and you can see the branching habit. Best in full sun.

In Canada, there are restrictions on barberry varieties and where they can be grown because some species have been known to harbour the over wintering phase of the wheat rust virus. This is unfortunate as south of the border in the USA are dozens of amazing Barberry varieties that are not allowed into Canada.

 

Arts Nursery carries a large selection of Japanese Barberries year round although we always recommend calling ahead, 604.882.1201, to confirm availability and selection
