Show #49/3810 A Garden Tour And Planting Tips At A Magnificent Estate
Some Of Eric's Favorite Plants
Diane and Eric look at some of the new plants that have just arrived. Eric notices some of his favorites. The Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight' is a wonderful selection that has 3 seasons of interest. A very unique Hydrangea, very floriferous is Phisocarpis opulifolious 'Summer wine'. It's purple leaves fit the color scheme and is a wonderful plant in bloom. It's flowers are on right now and its blackish, purple foliage is absolutely fantastic. A great plant they've just received and one that's excellent for dry soils is Berberis thunbergii 'Gold Pillar'. Sambucus nigra "Black Lace' is a perfect Japanese Maple substitute in zone 5 where the Japanese Maple can't grow, but it does great here.
