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.

Chinese Snowball - 3 gallon
Chinese Snowball - 3 gallon

$42.95
The Chinese snowball is often mistaken for a huge hydrangea, near tree size. It’s not. It’s a viburnum. When the species were first botanically classified by Linnaeus in his Species Plantarum they were grouped together. Later taxonomist’s separated them into distinct species. Enough history. These are nice 3 gallon Viburnum macrocephalum ’Sterile’ known generally as Chinese snowball. They grow large, 15 feet or so, and not as wide, depending on your pruning and garden space. Blooms in April for us (well before any hydrangea) and again but much more sparsely in autumn. Needs as much sun as possible. Light shade will do but nothing darker. Deer will browse but once it shoots up to become the large shrub it wants to be, they are no problem. It does not fruit as this is the sterile form. Zones 6 - 9. The flowers are not fragrant.

Daphniphyllum humile - gallon
Daphniphyllum humile - gallon

$21.95
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.
