It’s all about the leaves!It wasn’t that long ago that every garden in America wanted a dogwood. These native shrubs were easy to care for and had those classic flowers that everyone “in the know” had to have. (When the daughter of the famous department store magnate had her home on the cover of that famous magazine, it was dogwood branches in the vase on the grand piano, in case you were wondering. After that no socialite worth her silver spoon would be caught dead without several dogwoods available in the garden for floral design.) So, yes, the flowers are beautiful. Even the twigs are beautiful. But the leaves…well…they were just foliage. Until now. Let us introduce you to the newest star in the world of dogwood shrubs – Pucker Up! Dogwood (Cornus stolonifera ‘Neil Z’).This gorgeous plant has leaves that are so elegant and textured that they look almost like they were hand-stitched by master quilt-makers. The flowers are pretty, but the leaves will stop you in your tracks! This new take on an American native is so easy to care for. It handles just about any soil – even wet ones – and thrives in partial shade. It rarely needs pruning to maintain its sexy shape and it also looks good in the winter when its bare branches blush red. Use it in mass plantings along the foundation of your porch, in a naturalistic garden bordering the property line or as a stand-out specimen in a pot by the patio. Plant multiples so that you can cut the branches and bring them inside for very “of-the-moment” decorating. If you have even briefly thought of having a dogwood in your yard, then this is the time to buy and Pucker Up! Dogwood is the shrub. Be the first person you know to have one!

Compact and beautiful all year!We love it when we can offer a plant like Firedance Dogwood (Cornus sericea ‘Bailadeline’). We are always striving to be on point with the latest trends, but realize that gardens need to be more then trendy. They need to be lasting and make you happy for a long time.Currently the trend is for smaller, more compact plants in the garden to meet the needs of urban gardeners. Firedance Dogwood maxes out at 3’-4’ high and 4’-5’ wide, so it can fit anywhere – even in a favorite large container.But people want a real ‘wow’ factor, too. Something that will keep them interested every season of every year. Firedance Dogwood definitely brings the ‘wow’…and then some! Firedance begins leafing out in the spring. The basil-green leaves are the perfect backdrop for the multitude of white flowers that cover the shrub. The flowers are followed by pretty white berries which bring the neighborhood songbirds to your garden to sing in the summer. In the fall, the leaves turn with the weather to a rich reddish-purple. (If you plant these with chartreuse or yellow leaved shrubs, you’re in for a spectacular fall show!)At this point most shrubs are done, but not Firedance. Once the leaves fall the twigs and stems turn a bright red (hence the name Firedance!) and heat up the winter landscape. The twigs are great to cut for winter floral arrangements, too!On top of that, this shrub loves being wet and works in tough rain garden situations and is also a great slope stabilizer, holding soils in place.Yeah, we love it when we can offer you a plant with as much to give as Firedance Dogwood. Make sure to order yours before they’re gone. We don’t love it when you miss out on a great deal!* Low maintenance * Fast Growing * No pruning needed * Four seasons of interest * Great for containers * Perfect in compact spaces * Works in raingardens and on slopes.
