Hydrangea paniculata 'Silver Dollar' $7.97. Look at those summer flowers!

Phantom Hydrangea, huge white flower clusters fading to pink

Hydrangea paniculata 'Phantom'.

The largest ever flower clusters have strong stems for cut flowers and will hide a 6' fence when grown as a hedge. Phantom is an unpatented sibling plant to patented Limelight Hydrangea but wasn't as widely marketed back in the 00s compared to Limelight. Pink tinge to the cream white flower clusters. $7.97 each.

Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight' PP#12,874 $7.97.

Fades to a green tinge on the white flower panicles. These are the kinds of hydrangeas I grow in OKC because I don't have that much shade or patience for the pink/blue/purple Bigleaf Hydrangeas to get them to grow and bloom for me. If your hydrangeas have stopped blooming or changed color, you probably have Bigleafs. Panicle Hydrangeas love full sun and summer. Hardy zone 3-9.

Hydrangea paniculata 'Unique' $7.97.

The antiquey color of the faded blooms is part of why folks love the Paniculatas for dried flowers. They bloom on new wood, so it doesn't matter what time of year you are cutting on these type of Hydrangeas, they'll still pump out flowers that summer. This Unique variety has both sterile (large) and pollen blooms.

Make a plan to Get out here early in the day before the heat takes over.

Root Shrubs, 18804 County Road 651, Memphis, MO 63555.

I plant out groundcovers in the mulch bed for flowering shrubs.

Groundcovers all $7.97. Choose from:
Creeping phlox, Phlox subalata 'Emerald Blue', 'Ft. Hill'
Blue flowering Ajuga 'Black Scallop'
Mountain sedge, Carex appalachica
New Zealand orange sedge, Carex testacea

But what about shade, like a lot of shade!

Hosta propagate by division and send out flowers when happy. They can be particular about moisture (yes) and sun (not) requirements but reward both novice and experienced plant parents with lush and full growth in the spring, flowering in the spring, and going dormant in the fall.
I especially like the look of Hosta 'Blue Cadet' heart shaped dusty blue leaves that are heat tolerant with light lavender star balloon flower scapes 2' foot tall.
Hosta 'Wide Brim' has outer yellow variegation fading to cream, a green and golden hosta that can take some sun. $7.97 each
You'll see a variety of hosta here including Halcyon, a thick blue-toned hosta.
Adding some hosta can help support honeybees as they start to flower in June through August.

Is this list of plants getting too long?

Well I tell you what, I have more plants to write about in this ad that are looking their best today. So this ad is getting longer.

No fear because this ad will print out if you are old school like me or you can screenshot and circle what you want on the edit photo app.
