Athens Sweetshrub - trade gallon
Athens Sweetshrub - trade gallon

$20.95
Calycanthus floridus ’Athens’ (a/k/a ’Katherine’ for Dr. Michael Dirr’s oldest daughter) was first given widespread availability by Cedar Lane Farms in Madison, GA thanks to owner, Jane Symmes and was one of the first plants we acquired (see SKU number) in 1989 when we started our nursery. The clone is unique in the yellow flower color. To some degree it is also unique due to its intense, fruity fragrance since many "sweetshrubs" have no fragrance at all. It’s a plant native to the USA if that matters to you, and its perfume is most noticeable in the evenings. Height to 8 feet and spreading much wider where space allows. Our current crop is actually from root cuttings dug a year ago in an attempt to corral the mama plant. No. But a bit of discipline is good for most native plants and many others. Zones 5 - 9.

Daphniphyllum humile - 1/2 gallon
Daphniphyllum humile - 1/2 gallon

$19.95
Haystack-shaped evergreen shrub or small tree. These are seedlings raised from D. humile which is claimed by some to be a different (and shorter) species than D. macropodum. However, some references consider them the same. It makes an excellent dense, glossy-leafed mound to obscure whatever ails your garden. Size is the main question. If D. humile is truly low-growing or dwarf then these should be 6-8 feet tall and wide, as the mother plant is. If however, D. humile is synonymous with D. macropodum then Katie bar the Door, as our garden plants tagged as that species are already 25 tall. Jack and the Beanstalk? So it’s guesswork. Zones 7 - 9 (have survived -1 degrees here).

Enkianthus Rubens - 1 quart
Enkianthus Rubens - 1 quart

$25.95
Enkianthus cernuus f. rubens is the most striking member of this genus. Slow growing, this shrub is a show-stopper when in bloom in late spring for those who notice plants closely. It does not scream like a billboard; it’s more like a lover’s whisper. The deep-red, fringed, bell-shaped flowers dangle below the thin stems. In autumn the foliage turns a reddish-purple. It is deciduous and needs good drainage and acidic soil. And the patience of a true gardener. Height to 5 feet. Zones 5 - 7.

$23.95
These are seedlings grown from Cornus elliptica, a Chinese evergreen dogwood that has performed wonderfully in the gardens here at Wilkerson Mill. Blooms in June for up to a month if the weather is kind. Happiest in bright shade, I think, no long-lasting direct summer sun here (GA). Height to 20 feet and almost as wide. Zone information in the texts suggest 7(b) - 9.

Golden Bridalwreath - trade gallon

$17.95
In earliest spring the graceful arching branches of the 4 foot Spiraea thunbergii ’Ogon’ are clothed in small white blooms which dance unfazed by late frosts. The sparkling chartreuse foliage of spring and summer turns amber in the fall -- an eye-catching bright spot in the garden. Sun or perhaps even better in lightest shade. Deciduous. Zones 4 - 8.

Graham Thomas Rose - trade gallon
Graham Thomas Rose - trade gallon

$19.95
We don’t grow many roses, only two or three, because we haven’t the patience to spray and prune and spray and prune and spray, as many roses require in order to perform in the garden. But we consider Rosa ’Graham Thomas’ to be a winner. Blooms are double, of pure yellow and very fragrant. It’s generally classified as an English shrub rose, and it gets tall, 8 to 9 feet, so plan ahead. Zones 5 - 9. Correct cultivar name is Rosa ’Ausmas’ I assume because it was bred by David Austin and named for Graham Stuart Thomas, a duly famous English plantsman. Makes sense to me. Unlike most current patented cultivar names, say ’Abetwo’ ("Incrediball") or ’NCHA1’ ("Invincibelle Spirit"). It has to do with "branding." In Arizona where I partially grew up, branding was for cattle so you could identify them if they strayed. But plants don’t graze and wander so . . .

Jane Platt Dwarf Fothergilla - 3 qt.

$19.95
Fothergilla gardenii ’Jane Platt’ is a dwarf form of the native witch-alder with a drooping habit, to a height of perhaps 3 feet. This is a true "gardenii" species unlike the more commonly sold selection ’Mt. Airy’. ’Jane Platt’ will grow in either sun or shade but will have better fall color in more sun. The flowers are creamy-white, honey-scented, in spring before the foliage appears. Deciduous. Zones 5 - 8.

Kalopanax septemlobus - trade gallon
Kalopanax septemlobus - trade gallon

$29.95
Castor-aralia is a little-used and little-known deciduous shade tree that over time becomes a magnificent specimen where space allows. The primary objection to this beauty is the sharp, numerous trunk thorns or "prickles" that make it not user-friendly at a young age. The ultimate attraction when it gains some age is the large green foliage creating a tropical-like canopy on a tree that can reach 50’ or more. I first saw it in full maturity at Mount Auburn Cemetery outside Boston during an International Plant Propagators Society tour some 20+ years ago. Had to grow it. Fall color in Georgia has been a consistent butter yellow. Bees love the summer flowers. Zones 4 - 7.
