Perennials Johnston's Evergreen Nursery
Cornus racemosa Creamy white clusters of flowers in May are followed by white berries in late summer that are quickly eaten by birds. Leaves can be used to make a soothing tea. Corylus americana A large shrub with yellow-brown catkins in spring. Large single blooms in a pretty blend of apricot and soft yellow. Countryside takes pride in supplying a wide variety of herbs, both common and unusual. Indexing process is completely automated. This is the perennial plant of the year. A slow growing evergreen preferring full sun and well drained soil. As with most double hepatica the flower looks different earlier as the bud opens and different again as the flower ages. Great for fresh eating. Very similar to species but with white bottlebrush like flowers. Pea-sized berries are light green with brown mottling and later become red in fall. Slow growing at first. Lavender-blue, bottlebrush like flowers on strong, upright stems. As they break the ground in early spring, each tightly rolled blue-green leaf encloses a flower bud, keeping it safe from harm. Long, showy flowers open a deep blue-lavender then fade as the season progresses. Plump, heart-shaped cherries ripen in June-often the first fruits of the summer. It is an excellent specimen tree that features a nodding central leader with widely-spaced arching branches. Blooms May to October. This is a fantastic double raspberry red.
