In a small space garden, you'll want to carefully consider all of your plant choices. Look for plants that will shine in multiple seasons, and they'll effortlessly double and even triple their visual impact for you.
High-quality, compact flowering shrubs that look great in spring, summer, fall and winter are worth the hunt. When you find them, use them wherever you have partial shade to tie your whole design together.
One of our favorites is the sophisticated Pee Wee Dwarf Oakleaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia 'Pee Wee'). This durable shrub is easily grown; always a boon for wise gardeners.
The name may be a bit twee, but the handsome good looks are not. Every part of this improved cultivar is smaller than the species, from its leaves and flowers to its overall dimensions.
Cherish the small, white conical blooms in spring that last nearly two months. They finally age into an antique pink by summertime and make cunning additions to cut flower arrangements.
You'll love the showy green foliage all season long. Just like its namesake, it features gorgeous leaves with deep lobes held nearly symmetrically on either side of the strong midrib.
These elegant leaves make you look twice. As nights grow colder, they turn an outstanding crimson red for fall color.
Even after the frost and snow of winter have arrived, you'll doubtlessly be pleased by the cinnamon-colored, exfoliating bark. Let the flowers persist on the shrub to dry into tawny panicles, and gain a very welcome display of winter interest.
Feel confident about this excellent small shrub. It is a wonderfully versatile choice for large gardens, as well.
Please place your order for Pee Wee Dwarf Oakleaf Hydrangea ASAP. Professional garden designers hunt for this variety to delight their clients.
Pee Wee features a small stature and exceptional decorative appeal. These would make a beautiful shrub border along the length of your driveway, or use a few in your foundation plantings.
Use them to line your patio, or at your property line. Include in your mixed garden beds. Rely on charming Pee Wee Dwarf Oakleaf Hydrangea to bring a consistent look to your entire landscape.
They'll soften the edge of mature evergreens while giving much-needed fall color. Create a wide mulched garden bed to pop in some easy-care shrubs and you'll have something great to look at from your deck.
Why not mix in a few other native shrubs to create a real garden feature? Aronia, Sweetspire and Fothergilla would complement the autumn harvest tones beautifully.
The local butterflies would certainly appreciate your thoughtfulness! Use a row of them to create a hard-working backdrop on the north side of sun-loving Butterfly Garden plants.
Plant them two and a half feet apart on center for a solid row. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next. Stagger a second row for much faster results, and mulch between plants.
For a casual modern take on formal design, create several rectangular mulched beds, and outline them with natural Baby Gem Boxwood allowed to grow out "fluffy" without shearing. Fill the interior with Pee Wee shrubs, then add a tree-form Rose of Sharon in your favorite color at each corner.
Get ready for compliments with these incredible shrubs. They look amazing all year long.
Pee Wee is a deciduous shrub that has no serious disease or pest problems. It's generally carefree. Interesting and colorful in every season,
Give it at least four hours of sunshine a day. It will perform best in well-drained soils that aren't soggy for long after rain.
It will need a medium amount of water on a consistent basis. Apply supplemental water during dry times.
Mulch helps cut down on surface evaporation and will keep the root zone cool and moist. Apply a three-inch layer, pulling it back away from the stems.
It blooms on last year's wood, so prune to shape directly after flowering, if needed. Don't wait too long, or you'll risk losing next year's flowers.
Pee Wee Dwarf Oakleaf Hydrangea is a superb choice for your yard this year. Order today!
