Sometimes called Dasiphora fruticosa, cinquefoil is very hardy and originates from north temperate regions from Asia to North America. From summer to frost, many buttercup-like flowers appear with regularity. These contrast nicely with its fine green leaves. A light trim in mid-summer will encourage...

Sand cherry gets high marks for its good looks, tough constitution, and delicious fruits which are relished by humans and wildlife alike. It produces a medium sized, multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub, whose branches are densely laden with finger-length, silvery-green, shiny, serrated leaves which turn bright red in the fall. Its woody stems are covered with reddish-brown bark, which darkens to gray as it ages. In late spring, sand cherry bursts into a cloud of white flowers, followed by a crop of...

(Flowering Almond)

Flowering almond is a small, erect, slender-stemmed deciduous shrub native to China. In midspring showy clusters of pink or white flowers crowd the length of the stems just as the leaves begin to emerge. It is usually grown in the form of its double-flowered cultivar 'Rosea Plena'.

Flowering almond requires sun and well-drained soil. Use it in the mixed border or shrub planting or for bonsai. Stems harvested in late winter or early spring can be forced into bloom.

(Flowering Almond, Pink Double Flowering Almond)

Flowering almond is a small, erect, slender-stemmed deciduous shrub native to China and Japan which is valued for its showy spring blooms. ‘Rosea Plena’ features double, rose-pink flowers which crowd the length of the stems in mid-spring. Resembling small powderpuffs, they appear just as its leaves begin to emerge. Lightly serrated, elliptical, medium-green foliage clothes the shrubs modestly for the rest of the growing season. The most commonly grown form, ‘Rosea Plena’ is synonymous with the...

(Dwarf Flowering Cherry, Himalayan Bush Cherry, Pacquemont Cherry)

In late winter to very early spring, the youngest branches, which are red, bear hundreds of of five-petaled flowers with long stamens. The petals are pink, ranging from fuchsia-pink to medium pink from shrub to shrub....
