Pink forsythia, or Abeliophyllum distichum, grows 3-6 feet tall in full sun to part shade. It flowers in early spring and has a light, sweet fragrance.
Beautiful foliage on this shrubby pine. There was a little note by it that said ‘Harvest Moon’, but I can’t find it, still looking. It contrasts well with the PJM rhododendron on the right.
It was a nice surprise to see this summer bloomer in February. Itoh peony is has sturdy stems and really big blossoms. Happy day!
Flowering Quince was hard to photograph. My camera did not want to focus on the closer buds. The beautiful big, fat buds are almost just as good-looking as the flowers themselves. The plant itself has a pokey, crooked shape which looks great in a container.
Lightly scented, this lilac blooms in spring and again in late summer until frost. Fantastic! It grows 4-5 feet tall and I want one!
It’s hard to see in the photo, but the tall reddish plant in the background is Agonis flexuosa ‘After Dark’, the shrub is Coprosma ‘Caro Red’ and the Sedge is ‘Rekohu Sunrise’. I really like this combination, there were some new things for me. Agonis is a tree from Australia and Coprosma a shrub from New Zealand.
