We have some exciting new additions for our companion plant list for you to check out.

Acer palmatum 'Atrolineare'
Upright dense compact shrub, to 8 feet.  Very narrow, dark purple foliage turning a bronze-green in summer.  Attractive yellow fall color.

Acer palmatum 'Chishio Improved
A rather rapid grower to 8 feet, with rounded growth habit.  Its thin young wood is dark purple and the unfolding leaves are a brilliant scarlet.  Mature foliage is a mix of green and blue, turning to orange-red in the fall.  Needs a sheltered position.

Acer palmatum 'Glowing Embers'
Large, rapid growing maple to 30-40 feet with equal spread.  Small dark green leaves turning to orange, red, and purple in the fall.  Good heat tolerance and excellent shade tree.

Acer palmatum 'Kagiri Nishiki'  (Syn. 'Roseum marginatum)
Strong, upright grower to 15-20 feet.  The foliage is small with white and pink variegated leaf margins.

Acer palmatum 'Kihachijo'
Rounded shape tree to 15 feet.  Bright green foliage turns yellow-gold in the fall.  Deep leaf lobes are doubly serrate.

Acer rubrum 'October Glory'
To 40 feet.  Broad, round head, one of the last red maples to color in the fall in deep red and purple shades.  Will tolerate mild winterssssss and hot summers better than most red maples.

Cornus kousa var. chinensis
Just like the species but has larger leaves and bracts.

Hydrangea arborescens 'Grandiflora'
"Pink Diamond Hydrangea"
To 8 feet.  Pink buds open to very large, 12" x 8", creamy white bloom clusters in late summer, turning to bright pink.  Makes an outstanding, long lasting display.  Best growth and flowering in full sun.  May be sheared for use in smaller landscapes.

Hydrangea paniculata 'Compact'
"Compact PeeGee Hydrangea"
To 6 feet.  Smaller leaves and blooms with the same bloom period, flower and fall foliage as Hydrangea paniculata 'Grandiflora'.  Better suited for smaller landscape uses.

Weigela florida 'Midnight Wine'
To 2 feet.  Has a low mounding habit with unusually deep purple foliage with metallic highlights contrasting nicely with the pink flowers.  A Proven Winners selection.
