What's Blooming This Week

Clerodendrum bungei is also known as the rose glory bower or Mexican hydrangea. It is a small shrub which
is native to China, with interesting scented flowers that appear late in the season. Its foliage is also ornamental.
This plant is hardy to about 5°F (-15°C) but the stems will be damaged below 15°F (-9°C/-10°C).
This shrub has large opposite and roughly serrated leaves, that are 4 to 8 in (10-20 cm) long. When crushed
 or rubbed, leaves emit an unpleasant smell, which explains its other name C. foetidum.
Flowers are pink, scented, have a tubular shape and 4 petals. They are grouped in terminal panicles.
This shrub has inedible berries, which are small and dark blue.

This plant prefers drained grounds that remain reasonably moist. It likes full sun but will
also grow in partial shade.
This shrub has few ennemies







        Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea)





        Blushing Bride Hydrangea
The name of this new Hydrangea macrophylla says it all. Pure white blooms with semi-double florets gradually mature to a sweet, pink blush.
Like Endless Summer The Original and Endless Summer Twist-n-Shout, Endless Summer Blushing Bride will add life and love to your garden and home virtually all season long. Reliably blooming on both old and new growth, you can experience the beauty of Blushing Bride again and again, all summer long.
