This lovely clematis has reddish-pink flowers with a deeper bar and contrasting yellow stamens. Good-sized 10–15 cm-diameter flowers will cover the plant in June and July. Will twine up to 2.5 m tall. A type 2 clematis, meaning it will bloom primarily on growth produced the previous year, with a lighter, second flush later in the season. Prune hard every second or third year. Grows best in full sun to partial shade. Hardy to Zone 4.
'Tie Dye' clematis
Clematis 'Tie Dye' PP18913
'Tie Dye' has very unusual violet-purple flowers with white marbling throughout the petals. It has a vigorous habit and is a profuse bloomer. Developed from the well-known Jackman clematis, 'Tie Dye' is a type 3 clematis, meaning it flowers on the current year's growth, blooming later and longer. Hardy to Zone 4 and will grow to 3 m.
Endless Summer® Bella Anna™
Hydrangea arborescens 'PIIHA-1' PPAF
The newest addition to the Endless Summer® collection of hydrangeas, Bella Anna was selected for its strong, upright stems that support the weight of the colourful and long-lasting pink blooms. This is the first arborescens hydrangea worthy of being part of the Endless Summer series. Bella Anna comes from the work of Dr. Michael Dirr, the noted horticulturist. Easy to grow, and blooms on new wood, meaning it will bloom from summer 'til fall. Grows 90 cm (3 ft) tall and wide. Hardy to Zone 5.
