Looking for something new and unique for your garden? We have just brought in some new Proven Winners plants that are sure to please! Proven Winners partners with the top plant breeders around the world to ensure their plants are healthy, vibrant, and unique.

Here are a few of the new plants we have for you to choose from.

Sugar shack Button Brush

Sugar Shack Buttonbush

Cephalanthus occidentalis ‘Sugar Shack’

Buttonbush used to be a shrub that was too big for most gardens but now we have Sugar Shack which is smaller and more manageable! Sugar Shack starts with fragrant white flowers and follows with red fruits. A three seasons of interest plant. Attracts bees, butterflies and hummingbirds too! A great plant for naturalizing or mass planting in wet areas. Trim in early spring if required. Grows 3-4ft tall and wide. Hardy to zone 6.

Purple Pearls BeautyBerry

Purple Pearls Beautyberry

Callicarpa ‘Purple Pearls

Purple Pearls has leaves that are tinged with purple as well as pretty pink flowers in the fall which turn into very large purple berries that cover the whole shrub throughout the winter. A definite show stopper for the fall/winter garden!

Great Gatsby Oakleaf Hydrangea

Gatsby Star Oakleaf Hydrangea

Hydrangea quercifolia ‘Gatsby Star'

This white double blooming hydrangea has pointed petals instead of rounded! Gatsby Star is sure to catch your eye with its beautiful lacey panicles that bloom all summer and then with its burgundy fall foliage! Blooms on old wood. Grows best in sun to part shade. Will reach 5-6ft tall and wide. Hardy in zones 5-9.

Bloomerang Dark Purple Lilac

Bloomerang Dark Purple Lilac

Syringa Bloomerang ‘Dark Purple’

If you love lilacs you will love Bloomerang Dark Purple! This plant blooms in spring like all lilacs do but then it keeps on blooming throughout the summer and fall! You can enjoy the large, rounded, fragrant blooms for three season! This is a must have.

Splendid Star Pampas Grass

Splendid Star Pampas Grass

Cortaderia selloana 'Splendid Star'

This low growing Pampas grass is a great credit to its name. Splendid Star features yellow and green variegated foliage and dusty white flowers on tall stalks. It is an ideal plant for many uses in the garden, where it will grow in an attractive pot on the patio or balcony, but can also be used as an outstanding feature in borders or in small groups. It grows to an approximate height of 70cm. Does best in full sun and well drained soils. Protect Pampas grass from severe frost.
