One of the best vines for clinging to brick or stone walls. The white flowers are produced in flat-topped corymbs in late June or early July, 6-10" in diameter with a sweet fragrance. Does well in sun or shade. 1998 Cary Award Winner. 2006 Plants of Merit®.
A deciduous twining vine with purple foliage at a young age. A male selection with attractive coloration, particularly striking with its pink and white variegated leaves. The leaves are 5" long. Hardiest kiwi known. Prefers full sun.
Self-pollinating, sweet, early bearing plant. Without a male, the fruit is seedless; with a male the plant will produce larger and more fruit. Less susceptible to spring frost damage than regular arctic kiwi. Best with limited space in colder climates. Full sun to part shade.
Selected at Bailey Nurseries, this Tilia cordata cultivar is somewhat similar to Greenspire®, but with stouter branching and a more open canopy. An excellent choice for home landscapes, it displays more vigorous growth than Greenspire® in the nursery, with excellent, uniform branching all around the trunk, and slightly larger foliage.
A splendid plant for street and residential use, Littleleaf has glossy dark foliage and fragrant pendulous flowers in early summer. Virtually disease free and very adaptable, it does well in poor soil.
This Sheridan Nursery selection has a sturdy, more compact, oval growth habit than Japanese tree lilac. A most attractive small flowering tree with cherry-like bark, it bears large creamy white flower clusters in early July. It will perform best in full sun. (C®)
A beautiful variegated Japanese tree lilac from Bakker Nursery in Ontario. In spring the new foliage emerges green with a dark center. The edge of the leaf gradually turns to bright gold, and the dark green shadow in the center of the leaf gives the illusion of an eclipse. 'Golden Eclipse' blooms with creamy white flowers in late spring/early summer. (CPBR #1505, C®)
Selected by Rod Bailey because of its exceptionally heavy bloom. Although the species tend to flower biannually, Snowdance™ flowers well annually and begins flowering at an earlier age than the species. Large, fragrant panicles of creamy white bloom in June. This sterile variety produces no untidy, brown seedheads. Lustrous, dark green foliage is slightly larger and darker than the species. As wide as tall with attractive, shelved branching. A pest and disease free lilac tree for residential and park use. Equally attractive as a specimen as it is in group plantings.
Originally selected at the Beijing Botanic Garden by the same individual whose cultivar name it bears, this new tree lilac variety sports primrose yellow bloom trusses and shiny cinnamon colored bark. The blooms also have a wonderful fragrance, which is an added bonus.
Medium-sized flowering tree has multi season interest because of its ornamental, amber-colored, exfoliating bark. In mid-June large, creamy-white, fragrant flowers appear. Shown to be drought and salt tolerant once established. Needs a well-drained soil in full sun or part shade. Useful in residential and commercial plantings.
Tinkerbelle® was the first introduction in Bailey's Fairytale® Series of Lilacs. Developed by Neal Holland of Sheyenne Gardens, this dwarf results from crosses between Syringa meyeri 'Palibin' and Syringa microphylla 'Superba'. Tinkerbelle® forms a superb small tree with a pleasing spicy fragrance and incredible wine-red flower buds that open in late spring. (CPBR #1204, C®)
This tree blooms in the first part of May, with fragrant white flowers in slender drooping clusters. One of the first trees to leaf out in spring, it has dark green foliage that turns yellow to red as autumn arrives.
'Northern Belle' Sweetbay Magnolia has larger than normal, fragrant, creamy white flowers that appear in June and July. Evergreen foliage and excellent cold tolerance make 'Northern Belle' an exceptional Sweetbay Magnolia. Attractive red fruit has orange seeds in fall.
The 'Ann' magnolia tree is a member of the Little Girl series from the National Arboretum. 'Ann' was selected especially for its late bloom (mid-April to early May) avoiding the hazards of late frost. It has lightly scented red-purple, 7-9" flowers that emerge from beautifully tapered buds. Best grown in normal garden soil and full sun.
This hardy Japanese magnolia remains among the most popular. In April its pink buds open to double white fragrant flowers of 25-30 petals, 3-4 inches in diameter. An upright and densely branched plant, it has dark green foliage that shifts to bronze in fall.
Pink buds open to incredibly full and wonderfully fragrant pale pink flowers in spring. Centennial Blush is a prolific bloomer with flower buds formed at almost every node yielding a fantastic floral display of delicate pink covering the entire plant. Attractive medium green foliage on an interesting branching structure follows in the summer turning yellow to bronze in autumn. Can be grown as a large shrub or a small tree, perfectly suited for small urban gardens.
Moonglow® is an excellent choice for smaller urban gardens. Flowers abundantly with cupped, creamy-white, lemon scented blossoms in June. Foliage is a lustrous, deep green, almost evergreen in warmer zones. Besides the urban landscape this would be a good choice for naturalizing in moist areas. Full sun or part shade.
