As one of the largest North American growers, Monrovia is constantly introducing new and exciting plants, shrubs and trees into the gardens of Canada and the USA. In 2014, some of their more interesting selections include compact trees, colourful shrubs and a whole host of other types of plants. Here are six new selections available at Arts Nursery for Fall 2014

Enchantress Hydrangea

Enchantress Hydrangea

Hydrangea macrophylla 'monmar'

Enchantress is an exquisite new re-blooming hydrangea with stately ruby-black stems supporting big, beautiful, mophead flowers. Blooms continuously through summer with blue flowers in acidic soils and pink flowers in more alkaline soils. Flowers fade to lovely cream-splashed green. This variety is prized for cut or dried flower arrangements. It is an enchanting selection for the mixed shrub border.  It forms a rounded shrub that reaches 3-5ft tall and wide. Best grown in part sun to part shade in moist, but well drained soils. Hardy to USDA zones 6-9. If necessary, prune after flowering.

SilverRay Korean Pine

SilverRay Korean Pine

Pinus koraiensis 'Silverray'

Few things are as enchanting as a mixed collection of evergreen conifers in the winter garden. Silver Ray Korean Pine is a bright conifer with silvery-blue coloured, long needled foliage on a semi-dwarf narrow tree. It is a tidy landscape specimen for residential as well as commercial use. Forms a tall, dense screen when planted in a row or shines as an individual specimen. Grows to 8ft tall and 4ft wide in 10 years, ultimately reaching 30ft tall and 10ft wide at maturity. Best when planted in full sun and moist, but well drained soils. Hardy to USDA zones 4-9.

Camouflage Japanese Aralia / Fatsia

Camouflage Variegated Japanese Aralia / Fatsia

Fatsia japonica 'Camouflage'

Camouflage is a highly sought after new Fatsia variety from Monrovia. Each leaf of this shrub or small tree possesses an exquisite melding of yellow, lime and green, providing an illuminating effect in a dappled shade setting. Prized for its unique, highly textural foliage, it often blooms fall to winter, producing showy panicals of white flower clusters followed by black seed clusters. While Camouflage Fatsia is evergreen, it does better with some winter protection. Planting it close to the house, near or under overhangs or large trees is beneficial. Best when planted in part sun but will tolerate full sun in moist, but well drained soils. Excessive yellowing could be a sign of too much sun. Grows 5-8ft tall and wide. Hardy in USDA zones 7-10.

Ginkgo Jade Butterfly

Jade Butterfly Maidenhair Tree

Ginkgo biloba Jade Butterfly

Jade Butterfly is a new variety of deciduous Ginkgo tree that forms an attractive vase shape with bright green uniquely shaped leaves and lovely gold fall colour. Greenish-yellow flowers appear in mid-spring. It is a slow growing, dense foliaged variety that makes a striking specimen. Best when planted in full sun in moist, but well drained soils. Reaches 12-15ft in height and up to 10ft wide. Hardy in USDA zones 4-9.

Magenta Saxifrage

Magenta Saxifrage

Saxifraga fortunei 'Magenta'

Brighten the cool season garden with sprays of vibrant magenta-pink flower clusters held above compact mounds of fantastic, bronze tinged foliage.Blooms in late fall to late winter. Plant this quintessental woodland garden perennial along pathway borders, in a lightly shaded rock garden or add for contrast to mixed containers plantings. Best in full to partial shade. Grows 6-10 inches in height and spread. Herbaceous perennial.

Red Berry Holly

Red Berry Holly

Ilex x 'Rutzan'

While not completely new, this outstanding Holly variety is well worth the mention. Red Berry produces abundant crops of tiny white spring flowers, followed by bright red berries. Both are combined with dense, deep green foliage to create an annual spectacle. It is a beautiful specimen or a hedge. Use for framing an entrance or lining a drive. Maintains its dense form with little or no pruning. Evergreen. grows 7-10 ft tall and 4-5ft wide. Hardy in USDA zones 6-10. Performs best in full to part sun and needs regular watering.
