We are also excited to be adding several new varieties of plants to
our catalog this year. The Pieris Japonica 'Shojo' is a cultivar from
Japan and has black-red buds opening to very dark pink flowers.
We also have several new Rhododendrons. The Rhododendron 'Northern
Starburst' is a tetraploid of the PJM compact, with significantly
larger flowers of greater substance, strong stems and thick leaves.
These are being offered as a B&B plant in the smaller grade sizes.
Also, we are now offering two more Lepidote varieties of Rhododendrons
for the first time. 'Black Satin' blooms a couple of weeks later than
similar hybrids, with reddish purple flowers that are a striking
contrast with the dark mahogany-almost black colored winter foliage.
'Milestone' blooms in late April, with vivid reddish-pink frilled
flowers. Its autumn foliage is orange-red.
Thank you for your continued support and interest in our nursery
products. We welcome the opportunity to meet with you personally and
to give you a tour of the nursery. It is always a pleasure to visit
again with long-time customers and to meet new ones.
