|Hydrangea Vanilla Strawberry
Large flowers begin creamy white but turn pink two weeks later and then become strawberry red or even burgundy, retaining that shade for about 3-4 weeks. New flower heads continue opening into late summer, so plants display all three color stages at any one time. Sun

|Hydrangea Great Star
Add star power to your garden with this paniculata Hydrangea. The flowers open to large white wavy star shaped florets that can be up to 4" in width. Flowering starts mid summer and will last until the first hard frost to give your garden lasting summer star power.
|Ninebark Little Devil
This cute little devil will add deep burgundy foliage color to your garden in a compact, easy to grow and maintain shrub. An exciting improvement to ninebark selections, Little Devil™ is great for every garden but especially useful for smaller urban gardens or where low maintenance is desired, as it needs little to no pruning and is free from pest and disease issues
|Maple Sienna Glen
A broad pyramidal form, fine texture and interesting fall coloration. The leaves are smaller than most maples and turn orange to red in fall. Resistant to frost cracking, sunscald and dieback. Matures at 60'; 40' spread.
