Barberry (Berberis)

Range of heights from 18” to 4', mostly burgundy foliage, but green and yellow also. All of these plants have thorns, so they make a good barrier plant; should be pruned by thinning and heading back.

 

Euonymus

Hydrangea

Numerous varieties carried. Plant heights range from 2-3' to 6-8' and from full sun to shade. Flower color is mainly creamy white with some varieties having pink overtones. “Endless Summer” will turn blue if treated. “Oakleaf” Hydrangea has very striking foliage and a great fall color.

 

Potentilla

Great small shrub that flowers all summer; variety of flower color but mostly yellow. Need to be thinned and headed back every year.

 

Salix 'Hakuro Nishiki'
