A low growing, stoloniferous evergreen groundcover with a stiff plant habit. It has pinnately compound leaves that are a dull blue-green during the summer, which turn a bronzy purple for the winter months. Blooms in early spring with yellow flowers turning to blue-black berries in August and September. Full sun to part shade.
Extremely dwarf, gold-leaved variety with bright pink flowers in early summer and repeating some through the remainder of the growing season. New leaves are light bronze before maturing to yellowish gold. A North Dakota State University introduction. Full sun.
Magenta pink flowers stand out against the bronze foliage and lime venation. Beautiful and low maintenance plant for foundations, for groups in borders or as a low hedge. Attractive to birds and butterflies.
A hardy, attractive plant for its color contrast. Very nice in the foundation or as a border planting. More refined, compact growing form of golden ninebark with excellent yellow foliage. White flowers and red fruit.
A cultivar from Germany selected for its beautiful red-purple foliage on long arching canes. Forms a beautiful rounded mound of foliage and, even though it gets quite tall, can be controlled by cutting branches back to the ground each spring. Blooms in spring with creamy-white flowers that contrast nicely against the dark foliage. Plant in full sun for best foliage color. A good substitute for Prunus x cistena because of its hardiness and durability. 2002 Gold Medal Plant Award winner.
Panicles of purple buds opening to single, red-purple flowers. Blooms early to mid-June on large pyramidal spikes. Blooms two weeks later than common lilac. Excellent specimen or hedge plant. Considered the best of the Preston hybrids. Cross made by F. L. Skinner of Dropmore, Manitoba.
This very attractive plant is popular for its steel-blue foliage and fine textured twigs that are purplish in the winter, adding interest in the winter landscape. Good plant for wet areas or for stabilizing stream banks. Makes an attractive hedge.
This dwarf variety has an excellent uniform habit and red-purple buds that open to fragrant, single, pale lilac flowers. Previously known as Syringa palibiniana, it bears profuse blooms at an early age. 2000 Gold Medal Plant Award winner.
Glossy semi-evergreen leaves emerge dark green in spring turning bronze in autumn. Lilac pink tubular flowers with orange throats bloom on new growth from mid-summer through fall. Blooms have a pleasant fragrance that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. A beautiful arching, vase-shaped shrub that can be used in the shrub border or in mass plantings.
