Oh yeah, we’ve also A LOT of plants for you this week!
Bright red berries on purple stems embellish the dense, blue-green foliage from fall through winter on ‘Blue Princess’. Partner with a male blue holly in the landscape for a prolific berry set in fall. Castle Spire® is a regal accent for your landscape! Dark glossy leaves, superior vigor and branching make it a superior choice. These are fresh trimmed and looking GREAT right now!

‘Munstead’ is a hardy, extremely fragrant lavender variety that blooms twice starting in late spring or early summer. This variety tolerates heat and poor soil conditions well.  ‘SuperBlue’ is a hardy, compact and fragrant Lavender plant that tops out at about a foot in height, making it a perfect choice for edging walkways and setting into patio containers. 
‘Big Time Blue’ features big time versatility – it can be enjoyed in containers, planted as a perennial border, or massed to form a colorful hedge. Shiny, luminescent green foliage provides a striking contrast to columnar purple blooms. ‘Bubblegum Candles’ boasts an abundance of psychedelic pink spikes. Its compact, bright green foliage and tidy form make this a great plant for edging a path or mass plantings.
Calycanthus ‘Aphrodite’ is covered in big, glossy leaves, and this shrub explodes with enormous, long-blooming cupped flowers (picture on right) that look a bit like a deep red magnolia. 
Wine and Roses® is an award winning weigela featuring rosey-pink flowers that appear in late spring and often rebloom into summer. With rich dark purple foliage you will have season long color! Weigela Stunner® features vibrant pink blooms that pop against sleek dark purple foliage creating a showy, elegant look.
