Fall Introduces New Plants at Loma Vista

Quite a few new crops are coming on for late summer and fall bookings including shrubs and perennials.  Here's a sneak peek at some of our new plants.  

The BloomStruck is Endless Summer's new addition of a re-blooming hydrangea. Big white to blue blooms lasting all summer long in acidic soil, pink in neutral to alkaline soil.  Red-purple stems, dark green foliage.  Zone, 4-9, matures 3-4' x 4-5'.

Also, new for the fall, is the First Editions' Strawberry Sundae hydrangea. This from the same breeder of the Vanilla Strawberry hydrangea. These blooms start creamy white, turning pink and finishing red. The compact habit of this hydrangea only reaches 4-5' in height, 3-4' width.  Zone 4-8.  Grows in sun, part shade, shade.

An exciting addition to the ninebark family, we will offer Ball Ornamentals' Physocarpus Burgundy Candy. This ninebark has persistent rich burgundy foliage with a unique compact habit, only reaching 4' in height, 3-4' spread.  Zone 3a - 8a.

We will also have a few new daylilies added to our fall selection. The Crimson Pirate is a hemerocallis with thin red petals with yellow midribs.  This will certainly add an excellent show in the garden.

The Fragrant Returns daylily is already available for shipping. This hemerocallis blooms almost non-stop from mid-summer to fall. Its lemon yellow blossoms are sweetly fragrant, ideal for perennial gardens, containers and small spaces.
