Our Fall Plant Sale has begun! Every week this season, we will have three types of plants on sale. Tony is here to provide us with his top picks each week.
This week 9/10 - 9/16 we’re serving up 30% savings on: Dogwood (Cornus), Spirea (Spiraea), Lilac (Syringa). In the case of Dogwoods and Lilac that includes both the shrub and tree forms. Spirea is a shrubs-only set of choices. Tony has selected three of his top picks from each category to give you a bit of info to make your saving decisions easier.
Let’s preface this group by saying they like sun, lots of it, and a well-drained site. Any desired pruning should be accomplished within a month or so of the time they finish blooming. In the case of the repeat-blooming Bloomerang® touch them up (should you desire to prune them) after that heaviest first flush of flowers. And I love all three below because they have the charming habit of keeping their ankles covered to the ground with foliage unlike the “grandmother Lilacs” that can show 3’ of limb before the first leaf.
Shop the our Fall Plant Sale collection of Dogwoods, Spirea and Lilac online or come in to shop the entire collection. Stay tuned for next week's Plant Sale Top Picks!
