FOTHERGILLA:

    This shrub offers superb flowers and foliage, in both summer and fall.  White, fragrant flowers occur in April and May.  This plant does well in full sun to partial shade.  A good companion plant would be Azaleas.  The dark blue-green leaves turn shades of yellow, orange and red in the fall.  Fothergillas are just now becoming more available and will be seen in more landscapes in the future.


ITEA (Virginia Sweetspire):

    Fragrant white flowers up to 4” long show up in June and July, with the foliage changing from deep green to purple and crimson in the fall.  This is one of the easiest shrubs to grow.  It withstands heavy shade to full sun and wet or dry soils.  Growing 3 to 5 feet, it can be used in a variety of locations.


VIBURNUM:

    There are many varieties of Viburnum to choose from and their ability to adapt to many changes in sun or part shade helped to make them so popular.  Almost all are fragrant, flowering in April or May with small snowball-shaped blooms.  Some produce small orange/red berries in summer.  In autumn, some varieties develop deep burgundy leaves.  Most Viburnums pair well with any foundation planting.


PIERIS:

    This is a broadleaf evergreen that deserves consideration in any garden where it can have part shade and moist soil.  On “Mountain Fire” the new spring growth is bright red on top of the shiny green foliage.  White panicles of flowers droop gracefully in March and April.  Use this in foundation plantings as it is a very compact plant.  Must protect from north winter winds.


OAKLEAF HYDRANGEA:

    This shrub is best when given the space it needs to perform.  The large, white cone-shaped flowers appear in June and last for a month, often changing to lavender-pink as they age.  The large leaves turn rich burgundy in the fall and usually stay on the branches into December.  It has interesting bark through the winter months.  This shrub reaches 6 to 8 feet with a spread of 6 feet.  Use where it can be seen all through the season.
