NEW PERENNIALS FOR 2014
Artemesia ‘Ever Goldy’ – Similar to Silver Mound with the soft feathery foliage but this perennial has a beautiful gold colour.
Bleeding Heart ‘Love Hearts’ – This dwarf Bleeding Heart produces creamy white heart-shaped flowers with a hint of pink and blue-green foliage. It has a long flowering season.
Campanula ‘Genti Twisterbell’ (Bellflower) – Producing unique blue and white bicolour blooms, this Bellflower has an extended summer flowering time as it blooms the first time in late spring then reblooms in the summer.

‘Diva’s Choice’ – Another reblooming Daylily, this one produces violet-red flowers with a yellow ruffled edge and a green throat. Lovely!
Delphinium ‘Black Eyed Angels’ – This tall, sturdy Delphinium has flowers that are brilliant white with a black bee. It may rebloom if cut back after the first flowering. One of my favourite perennials!
Echinacea ‘Sombrero Hot Coral’ – This Echinacea produces large hot orange-red single flowers for a non-stop summer bloom. Very showy!
Hosta ‘Abiqua Drinking Gourd’ (2014 Hosta of the Year) – Medium-large puckered powder blue leaves that are deeply cupped make this Hosta a great choice for the shade. Very slug resistant.
Lily ‘Flore pleno’ – A Tiger Lily with double, vibrant orange flowers with black spots that will get your neighbours talking! Very different!
‘Sunny Grenada’ – This dwarf Oriental Lily has dark burgundy red flower with a bright white edge and is heavily spotted. It will produce 5-7 flowers per stem. Wow!

NEW TREES AND SHRUBS FOR 2014
Maple Deborah Norway – This large tree has bright red new growth which turns to green in the summer then back to red for the fall. Large maple leaf shaped leaves!
Poplar Northwest – While not a new tree for the area, it is new to Cannor. Northwest Poplar makes a great shade or shelterbelt tree. It has a shapely oval form and is fast growing. Beautiful yellow fall colour.
Juniper Gold Coast Topiary – This hardy juniper is now available in a Topiary Form which is a great feature item for your front yard. This juniper has layers of lacy, golden tipped foliage. Regular pruning to maintain the topiary form is required.
Pine Blue Mound Swiss Stone – This pine has a tight conical shape with nice silver-blue needles. It is very slow growing and has a low mounding habit. A rock garden gem!
Pine Weeping White – This Eastern White Pine has long blue-green needles that cascade from twisting, pendulous branches. Form will vary between plants. The weeping habit makes it a great feature tree.
Chokeberry Autumn Magic Black – This compact shrub has white blooms in late summer, brilliant red fall colour and black ornamental fruit. Great for a low hedge!
Barberry Concorde – A dwarf globe shaped Barberry with red new foliage maturing to purple. Great in a full sun area that gets regular moisture.
Rose Bill Reid – From the Canadian Artist series, this beautiful 1m tall rose has clusters of bright yellow double flowers all summer.
Azalea Candy Lights – A new Azalea with extremely fragrant, light pink flowers with pale yellow streaks. Needs a protected East exposure.
Azalea Fireball – Brilliant, fiery red flowers cover this beautiful Azalea in late spring! It truly looks like a fireball. Stunning!
