Fabulous Flowering Shrubs

 

A Few Fabulous Flowering Shrubs

 

Aesculus parvilflora  (Bottlebrush Buckeye)

Outstanding native large shrub with palmate leaves and 10-12 inch spidery-white flowers that appear in June.  A hummingbird and butterfly favorite, the blooms last 3 weeks into July.

Small leathery seed capsules start to ripen in September.

Grows 8-10 ft H by 15 ft W.  Handles Sun to Part Shade

 

Calycanthus floridus and Aronia melanocarpa 

(Carolina Allspice and Black Chokeberry)

Carolina Allspice is a 6 to 10 ft native deciduous shrub with glossy, aromatic, leathery, dark green foliage.  It's upright, multiple-stem growth habit creates a rounded outline in the landscape.  Flowers are dark red with numerous overlapping strap-like petals that are very fragrant.  Adapts to many different soils as well as sun or shade.

 

Black Chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa) is a deciduous shrub from North America.  It features black fruits, white flowers and fabulous fall foliage.

You can plant Chokeberry in either full sun or part shade in dry or moist soil.  It grows 3 to 6 ft tall and wide.

Makes a great Rain Garden Plant that attracts bees and birds.

 

 

Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple' (Smoke Bush)

Cotinus are grown for their large , plume-like panicles, which appear after the flowers and give a long lasting smoky haze to branch tipsGrow in Full Sun to Part Shade.  10 ft H by 15 ft W.

     Outstanding specimens in the shrub border, massing or hedges.   Minimal pruning needed.

 

Callicarpa bodinieri var. giraldii  'Profusion' (Beautyberry)

This species of beautyberry is a spectacular rounded deciduous shrub that grows 6 ft. to 10 ft. tall with upright slender branching.  Easily grown in well drained soil in sun to part shade.  Small lavender flowers bloom in summer followed by large clusters of bright, glossy, violet-purple fruits which ripen in September and are outstanding in October.  Foliage has good fall color.  Prune back to 6 inches in late winter or early spring if needed.  Likes sheltered location and planting a few Callicarpa planted together will result in better berry production.

Gibraltar blooms rosy pink to purple flowers from late summer to early fall.  It is a semi-woody shrub with an arching, fountain-like habit.  Best flowering occurs in full sun but will tolerate part shade.  Cut stems to the ground in late winter or early spring, and Bushclover will respond by producing rapid annual growth to 3-6 ft tall and wide.  Good drainage is essential.  Tolerates drought once established.

 

Exochorda x macrantha 'The Bride'  (Pearlbush)

An underused spring blooming shrub in the landscape.  Massive amounts of white flowers bloom in April on old wood.  Best sited in sheltered locations.  Plant in full sun to part shade.  Established plants have good heat and drought tolerance.  'The Bride' matures to 3-4' H by 3-4' W.  It is noted for its outstanding display of pearl-like flower buds in early spring followed by an abundant of white spring blooms on arching branches.
