Plants you may want to check out this weekend:
-Wisteria ‘Amethyst Falls’ – A beautiful selection / repeat bloomer – lavender purple flowers on new growth (slightly fragrant blooms even appear on one-year old plants). Amethyst Falls will repeat flower in mid and late summer – is a compact, shrubby and slower grower than other Wisteria’s. Spring flowering occurs from April into May on the terminals of new growth with a background of maturing gray green compact foliage.
-TopHat Blueberry – here is a dwarf blueberry, perfect for growing in containers, that flowers in the spring, has juicy berries mid to late summer (self pollinating), and turns red for fall colors. Easy to grow and loads of berries!
-Issai Kiwi – yes, we said ‘kiwi’! A hardy vine, Issai Kiwi is self pollinating, and produces wonderful small kiwi fruits with very little maintenance.
-Brown Turkey or Celeste Fig – love fresh figs? Here are two selections that with added winter protection, should over winter in the ground, but definitely over winter when grown in large containers and over wintered in an unheated garage or shed, or laid on it’s side and mulched over ‘outdoors’. Wonderful foliage, easy to grow, and very tasty fruit!
