Every year in September our fall planting, spring blooming flower bulbs arrive. Colourful tulips, delightful daffodils, fragrant hyacinths and dainty crocus are unpacked and made available for purchase. The best part of this task is discovering what the new varieties are for this year. So far, we've seen a nice selection of new tulips, a new daffodil, a handful of interesting crocus and even two new varieties of garlic. So without further ado, here are the new flower bulbs at Arts Nursery for 2014.

New Crocus Varieties

Orange Monarch Snow Crocus

Orange Monarch Snow Crocus

This super popular flaming orange crocus was originally available last year in limited quantities and is back again in larger numbers. Black streaks accent the orange flower colour. As a Snow Crocus, it is slightly smaller, growing to only 4 inches in height and flowers in early spring. Narrow green leaves have a silver stripe down the middle. Grow Orange Monarch in full sun and space the bulbs about 2 inches apart.

Yalta Crocus

Yalta Crocus

Yalta is a new variety of naturalizing crocus with flowers that are both white and purple. It sports some of the biggest crocus blooms available. Narrow green leaves have a slivery strip down the middle for added interest. Grows to 4 inches in height and should be planted in full sun. Blooms in early spring.

Sieberi Spring Beauty Snow Crocus

Sieberi Spring Beauty Snow Crocus

This hard to find variety of Snow Crocus is bi-coloured in shades of white, purple and even a hint of lavender. It is a variety that is good for naturalizing and like many of the others, features green narrow foliage with a silver stripe down the middle. Grow it in full sun and space the bulbs 2 inches apart. Grows to a height of 4 inches

New Tulip Varieties

Tender Whisper Tulip

Tender Whisper Triumph Tulip

Although it is a Triumph Tulip variety, Tender Whisper looks almost like a lily-flowered tulip. Flowers are unusually shaped and feature a white base blending towards pinkish red near the top. Strong stems make it an excellent cut flower too! Tender Whisper blooms in mid-spring and grows to a height of 18 inches. Plant in full sun and space bulbs 4 inches apart.

Delight Series Tulips

Delight Series Single Early Tulips

These four Single Early Tulips are available in 4 distinct varieties: Apricot Delight, Candy Apple Delight, Cherry Delight and Rosy Delight. Apricot Delight has flowers that are pink blushed to white. Cherry Delight has mid to dark shades of red. Rosy Delight is mostly pink while Candy Apple featured red, pink and creamy coloured margins. All four varieties are good cut flowers and will grow to a height of 14 inches. They bloom in mid-spring. Grow in full sun and space bulbs 4 inches apart.

Siesta Tulip

Siesta Fringed Tulips

Purple and pink petals edged white with lace-like fringes make Siesta a show stopper. Blooming in late spring, Siesta is a good cut flower reaching to 16 inches in height. Grow it in full sun and space bulbs 4 inches apart.

Boston Tulip

Boston Triumph Tulips

Boston is a new, attention grabbing two-toned red and yellow tulip that grows to 18 inches in height. An excellent cut flower, it blooms in mid-spring and will also attract bees and hummingbirds with its light fragrance. Like the other tulips, grow it in full sun and space bulbs 4 inches apart.

Prins Willem Alexander Tulip

Prins Willem Alexander Triumph Tulips

This attractive, orange-coloured Triumph Tulip is named to honour the new King of the Netherlands, Willem Alexander. Growing to 20 inches in height on strong stems also makes it suitable as a cut flower variety. Blooms in mid-spring and like the others should be planted in the full sun.

Miami Sunset Tulip

Miami Sunset

Miami Sunset is a gorgeous fringed tulip variety with vivid tropical colours ranging from red, through pink and orange and even a hint of yellow near the base. Distinctive fringed edges add even more interest. Miami Sunset blooms in late spring and will reach a height of 18 inches. Grow in full sun and space bulbs 4 inches apart.

Humilis Tete a Tete Tulip

Humilis Tete a Tete Multiflowering Tulip

Tete a Tete is the first ever double-petalled, multi-flowering tulip. They bloom in mid-spring and very short stems that will only reach 4 inches in height. Flowers are red in colour and can be used as a short cut flower. Each stem will produce 4-6 full sized flowers! They will make quite a display in beds, containers and borders. Grow in full sun and space bulbs 4 inches apart.

Praestans Shogun Tulip

Praestans Shogun Mini Botanical Tulip

This 10 inch high botanical tulip variety produces 3-4 brightly coloured yellow and orange blooms per stem in early to mid-spring. Praestans Shogun creates a woodland look and naturalizes well. It can even form a beautiful floral groundcover when planted close together. They are ideal for rock gardens, containers and borders. As an added bonus, their flowers are extremely long lasting, sometimes holding their flowers for several weeks! Plant in full to part sun and space bulbs 3 inches apart.

New Daffodil Varieties

Smiling Twin Narcissus / Daffodil

Smiling Twin Novelty Narcissus

Smiling Twin is a split-corona Narcissus (or Daffodil) with colours ranging from creamy yellow to lemon yellow near the center. It blooms in mid-spring with a nice fragrance and grows to a height of about 16 inches. Grow in full sun to light shade and space bulbs 6 inches apart. As an added benefit, narcissus are also deer resistant, naturalizing and can attract bees and hummingbirds to your garden.

New Garlic Varieties

Music Garlic

Music Garlic

This hardneck garlic variety has easily peeled cloves, a strong flavor and a luscious lasting after taste. Their cloves are often larger and have less of an outer wrapper. The flavour is pungent, sweet and good and can be quite hot if eaten raw, Like all garlics, Music should be grown in the full sun and spaced about 6 inches apart.

Siberian Garlic

Siberian Garlic

Siberian Garlic is attractive, flavourful and offers plenty of heat if eaten raw. The bulb is white with streaks of reddish purple. This hardneck variety produces larger, but fewer cloves than do the softneck varieties. Garlic is also deer resistant and will also help keep insects and fungal diseases in check. Plant in full sun and space 6 inches apart.

Bulb Planting & Care

The best time to plant bulbs is in the late summer and early fall, just as the autumn rains begin. Choose bulbs that are strong and solid, not mushy. When planting bulbs, dig a hole 2-3 times the height of the bulb and add bonemeal. Drop the bulb into the hole with the pointy side up. Not all bulbs have a pointy side, so do your best to figure out which side is the top. Fill the hole back up with soil and add Bulb Fertilizer on top for extra growth. Space bulbs close together, but not touching. For best effect, create large drifts or swatches of colour instead of planting one here and one there.

You can also plant bulbs in layers in either containers or the garden. It is a good idea to put labels or tags into the area so you remember what you planted! Once bulbs have finished blooming, allow their foliage to die back and yellow naturally. This allows the plant to put energy back into the bulb for next years display. Wait as long as you can before cutting back the foliage.

For best selection, drop by Art’s Nursery this September and choose your bulbs when the selection is at its peak! If you have any questions about these spring blooming bulbs, feel free to visit us in person or give us a call at 604.882.1201

Posted By: Laurelle Olfdord-Down in Christmas

December came in with a frosty blast of winter cold. We might actually make a winter of it this year and if we’re lucky (or not, depending on your point of view) we might see even more snow. Here is your list, it’s a small one, you are likely busy enough!

Is it Too Late To Plant?

We often get the question, 'Is it too late to plant?'. In Metro Vancouver, the answer is no. You can always plant around here... except if the ground is frozen. So take a break right now, but once we warm up to our regular 5-10 degrees through December, it is generally ok to plant. If in doubt, give us a call at 604.882.1201.

As crazy as it sounds, sometimes it is important to water your plants in winter. Often the main culprit of winter plant death is wind - which tends to dry and dessicate plants. When it is above freezing, water once or twice during the month if the rains are scarce. Try to find the balance between over watering and under watering. Very few, if any plants want to sit in cold standing water.

Winter Lawn Care

Lawns

Not much you can do while it’s frozen, just remember heavy traffic on the lawn while it’s frozen will cause some wear and tear. Take note of any poorly drained areas to adjust in warmer weather.

Garden Beds

Please don’t work garden beds when the ground is frozen, it compacts the ground and wreaks havoc on the grounds natural drainage. Water just seems to sit in a heavily trodden garden bed making your plants very unhappy. If you feel the need to garden, do it on paper! Plan for the springs projects, research plants and peruse online or hardcopy seed catalogues. With the leaves off it is probably easier to note any plants that need to be moved or divided in spring.

Winter Tree Care

Trees and Shrubs

You can thin things a little bit but leave your main pruning for late winter. If the ground is not frozen, you can move or add trees and shrubs but be sure to water them in…it isn’t to give your plant a drink, but rather to get rid of air pockets which could would cause frost heaves -most annoying when you’ve gone through all that trouble to plant your tree straight!

Winterizing Palm Trees

We’ve had a lot of questions about winterizing palms. Some palms need a greenhouse or other protection and you can check with the Pacific Northwest Palm Society for specific needs of more exotic palms. The best advice I’ve had for Windmill Palm Trees is to string non-led Christmas lights up the stem and leave them turned on during the colder evenings…I believe 7 watt Christmas lights were mentioned. Pretty and effective! Avoid wrapping them with burlap as it collects water and freezes which will damage the growing crown. If you are so inclined, you could build a little greenhouse around them to shelter them from the cold wind.

Winter Palm Tree Care

Pots & Containers

With that first dry run of cold weather, evaluate your winterizing, make sure your smaller pots at least are clustered up close to the house or are insulated in some way. Bags of leaves are pretty handy insulators as is carpet underlay and bubble wrap.

Tools, Mowers etc.

If you haven’t already winterized them and emptied the gas out of the mower do so now…saves you and your equipment a lot of trouble.

Feed the Birds in Winter

Feed the Birds!

Make sure bird feeders are clean and ready to go. Suet balls and peanut butter pinecones rolled in seeds are pretty cool outdoor Christmas decorations…and they attract your colourful feathered neighbours.

Have a fantastic December and a very warm and Merry Christmas! Take some time to sit a spell outside in a garden, or a park or a forest with a warm drink and look at the winter magic all around you, it is truly inspiring.

Cheers...

snowdrop bulb

Nothing piques our interest more than seeing the first plants of the season emerge from dormancy and begin to deliver the much awaited blast of colour after another typically dreary fall and winter.

These six beautiful plants were the first ones that caught our eye as we toured the nursery building up our very lengthly spring cleaning to-do list. Enjoy the colour and consider adding these delights to your pots or containers.

donards gold monterey cypress

Donard Gold Golden Monterey Cypress

Cupressus macrocarpa ‘Donard Gold’

This conifer is a bright, eye-catching star for the garden with distinctive, two-tone yellow foliage. Chartreuse new growth surrounds radiant, lemon yellow inner foliage. Both stand out against reddish, cinnamon brown bark. Upright branches produce narrow form. Best when planted in full sun in moist, but well drained soils. Will reach 25ft tall at maturity. Can be a little tender in the  Pacific Northwest. Protect or shelter in the winter for best results

rubinetta japanese skimmia

Rubinetta Japanese Skimmia

Skimmia japonica ‘Rubinetta’

A compact evergreen flowering shrub with a low spreading habit. The leaves and petioles are flushed red in the winter. Predominantly grown for its bronze red buds that open to fragrant white flowers in late winter and early spring. Will grow 2-3ft in height and spread. Best when planted in part sun but will tolerate more sun if soil is kept a little moist. Well drained soils are best. Hardy to zone 7.

hgc jacob hellebous niger

HGC Jacob Christmas Rose

Helleborus niger ‘HGC Jacob’

This lightly fragrant, evergreen perennial features single white flowers that age to light green or blush pink in the cool weather. Glossy dark green leaves and burgundy stems add further interest. Blooms very early (Nov-Jan); can also be enjoyed indoors for the holidays and then brought out for planting. Relatively trouble free and long lived. Deer resistant. An excellent plant for shady borders, woodland gardens and naturalized settings. Jacob is best when planted in full to part shade in a cool area. Prefers moist, but well drained locations, but do not allow it to sit in stagnant water. Will grow to 1ft in height and similar spread.

jelena hamamelis

Jelena Witchhazel

Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Jelena’

One of our favourite small trees.  ‘Jelena’ Witchhazel is a  vase shaped deciduous small tree that produces rich, coppery-orange flowers resembling wavy, crinkled paper. Blooms on bare branches in late winter through early spring. Adds blazing colour to the winter landscape. Plant near entry ways ad patios. Best when planted in the full sun. Will reach 15-20ft tall and 10-15ft wide. Hardy in USDA zones 5-8.

lunar glow bergenia

Lunar Glow Variegated Bergenia

Bergenia ‘Lunar Glow’

‘Lunar Glow’ is a new twist on a classic garden perennial. Bold, shiny new leaves are a showy gold in spring. Leaf colour goes to light green in summer to red in winter. Bright pink flowers are carried aloft.

 An excellent plant for winter containers or seaside gardens. Nice when used in mixed beds and borders. Prefers sun to part shade and moist, but well drained soils. Will grow 8 inches in height and 12 inches in spread.
acanthus whitewater

Whitewater Variegated Bears Breeches

Acanthus ‘Whitewater’

This vigorous, variegated Acanthus has striking bold leaves with deeply cut white margins and splashing. It forms a large clump with 4ft tall showy flower stalks with white and pink cream flowers in summer. Prefers part shade to shade and moist, but well drained soils. Will grow 2-3 ft in height and similar spread. Excellent in the garden and containers. Hardy in USDA zones 7-10, so may need some winter protection if colder than average season is predicted.

These plants and many others like them are usually available year round at Art's Nursery. If you are making a special trip, please call ahead (604.882.1201) to confirm availability.

There is just something about plants with bright beautiful berries in the fall that I absolutely love! Perhaps it is their optimistic splash of colour a beacon though the drab of winter. Here are my top picks to brighten your season:

winter green

Winter Green

Gaultheria procumbens

I am in love with this evergreen groundcover. It is beautiful actually at any time of year with little white bell flowers in the spring and often summer, followed by red berries which look lovely for a very long time. When you crush the leaves and berries it gives off that unmistakeable fragrance of wintergreen! It is a very low grower forming a little mound about 4-5 inches in height and about 6 inches wide…eventually spreading in width, but very, very slowly. It prefers a shady or dappled shade spot in acid soil. It is a great plant to add colour and interest to a planter. In the winter and fall it can be in a full sun spot and you can just pull it out of your planter and plunk it in a nice loamy spot in the spring!

lingon berry

LingonBerry

Vaccinium vitis-ideae

Another lovely that I have in a pot by the front door. It is a far better smelling alternative to the little boxwood I had earlier. I was actually blaming my old cat when upon closer inspection I determined it was the boxwood flower itself producing that nasty cat pee fragrance. Lingonberry is a glossy low growing evergreen that produces red edible berries high in vitamin C and antioxidants. Very similar to cranberry in health benefits. It can grow in part or mostly shade but will produce few berries. In a sunny spot not only is it tasty, but it is very pretty and so it graces my front step. It is a tough little plant, hardy to zone 3. Acidic, loamy soil is best for this charmer. Depending on the variety it grows between 4 and 16 inches in height, slowly spreading (though faster than wintergreen) through underground stems.

willow leaved cotoneaster

Willow Leaved Cotoneaster

Cotoneaster salicifolius

This is an attractive understory or sprawler of a plant which is very under or improperly utilized. I have seen this poor plant pruned to a square believe it or not. Allowed to maintain its natural form, it has graceful arching branches to about 15 feet by 15 feet with slender quilted deep green leaves which turn a rich burgundy in winter and remain on the shrub/tree. The clusters of bright red berries are highly decorative and are sought after by florists. Hardy to zone 6.

Gray Leaved Cotoneaster

Gray Leaved Cotoneaster

Cotoneaster glaucophyllus

The silvery gray green tiny leaves and the copious red berries all along the branchlets make for a really eyecatching shrub. A stunning companion to back the large glossy burgundy leaves of bergenia for starters. This evergreen shrub cotoneaster can tolerate a wide range of soils but grows best in well drained moderately humic soil in a sunny spot. It can grow to 3 feet high by about 5-6 feet wide if left to its own devices. It also looks lovely as cut branches against some deep green conifers in a pot. The tiny white flowers in spring are loved by honey bees. Hardy to zone 7.

Beauty Berry Shrub

Beauty Berry

Callicarpa bodieneri

Oh, you knew it would be on my list…had to keep you wondering for a few though. This has been one of the best years for berries on my plant. Callicarpa produces stunning metallic purple clusters of berries in fall. These berries will last into January when Mother Nature is obliging. I also use them as cut stems in my planters and table decorations. Outside in the planters they last about 2-3 weeks. Inside, much less. These shrubs also have lovely clusters of fuzzy purple flowers in summer that smell like Hawaiian lei’s. Mmmmmm. The Fall colour is yellow and they grow to about 8 feet by about 4-5 feet wide and prefer a sunny spot in well drained humic soil. Hardy to zone 5.

Deciduous Holly

Deciduous Holly

Ilex verticillata

A gorgeous deciduous holly without the spikey leaves! In the summer a lovely background shrub with fresh green leaves and small white flowers. After the leaves turn golden and drop in the fall the magic is revealed. Bright scarlet red berries or sunny gold berries depending on the variety all along the stem. These branches always find their way front and center in my pots. I do love the evergreen holly but these are an elegant cut centrepiece! A well drained soil in sun to part shade (the more sun, the more berries). Can grow to 15 feet by 15 feet, though with the winter trimming I do for my planters and displays, mine is much less. Hardy to zone 3.

snowberry

Snowberry

Symphoricarpos 'Charming Fantasy'

While wandering the nursery I chanced upon the lovely and delicate Snowberry. I do love their clusters of white berries bourne on slender branchlets…but what did I spy a few spots over??? A snowberry with clusters of baby girl pink berries. I am so going to use these in a display!! This small naturalizing deciduous shrub grows to about 4 feet in height and about 5-6 wide if allowed room. Trim in the winter after the berries have started to fade. Snowberry prefers a sunny to part shade position in average humic soil. Keep away from small children though, berries are poisonous.

japanese skimmia

Japanese Skimmia

Skimmia japonica

This is a lovely evergreen shrub for a shady position. Not only does it bloom in clusters of white and pinky white flowers with an AMAZING fragrance but the female shrubs produce bright red berries in clusters when there is a male in the area. Mmm hmmm. Hanky panky! In the garden this is a GOOD thing!! Skimma prefer well drained humic and slightly acidic soil in a shade to afternoon shade position. A stunning companion to ghost ferns and hardy cyclamen and a great pain free substitute for holly in arrangements. Depending on varieties, Skimmia can grow to about 3-4 feet by about 3-4 feet. Hard to believe there are some varieties that can grow to about 40 feet in their native Japan. Hardy to zone 7.

pyracantha

Mohave Firethorn

Pyracantha 'Mohave'

This tough customer is a reliable producer of huge clusters of bright orange, gold or orange red berries depending on the variety. Evergreen, spikey shrub can be grown against a wall or as a stand alone shrub in full hot sun in average well drained soil. The white flowers in spring are prolific, scented and a favorite of honey bees. The berries last well into winter and are also food for birds. This shrub can grow to 8-10 feet by about 8 feet if space is available, however it can be trimmed much smaller.

honey maid holly

Honey Maid Holly

ilex x 'Honey Maid'

This slow growing variegated evergreen holly is a lovely small addition to the garden. The glossy blue green leaves are delicately edged with cream. The bright red berries are a lovely contrast. This evergreen shrub prefers full sun to part shade with moist, well draining, humic soil. The cream edging will draw the eye so if a focal point is needed in the garden this shrub would really pop against a deep green conifer like a Yew.

As Always, please call ahead to confirm availability as our selection is always changing.

Enjoy, take care and happy gardening!
