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.
