Quick Fire Fab™

A remarkable, early blooming hydrangea with the wow-factor. It has large, football-sized, and shaped blooms that open in a creamy green color. Watermelon hues appear at the baseof the bloom and work their way uptowards the tip as it ages.

  • Hardiness Zones: 3-8
  • 6-8’ tall + wide at maturity
  • Full-part sun in northern climates & part sun in southern climates
  • Bloom Time: Summer

Limelight Prime™

An improved, more refined ‘Limelight’, with darker leaves, stronger stems, a more compact habit, and upright growth. It makes a great container hydrangea. The blooms emerge a vivid lime-green and maintain that color until they transition into bubblegum pink and then a deep punch pink.

  • Hardiness Zones: 3-8
  • 4-6’ tall + 4’ wide at maturity
  • Full-part sun in northern climates & part sun in southern climates
  • Bloom Time: Summer

Fire Light Tidbit™

A dwarf hydrangea similar to Bobo® for the front of the border with a bun-shaped habit and proportionately sized, rounded blooms. The late-season blooms emerge a creamy, light green-white and quickly begin to turn raspberry pink, creating a pleasing blend of colors.

  • Hardiness Zones: 3-8
  • 2-3’ tall + 3’ wide at maturity
  • Full-part sun in northern climates & part sun in southern climates
  • Bloom Time: Summer

Lo & Behold® 'Ruby Chip' Butterfly Bush

Ruby Chip is a tiny and tidy mound of orchid-pink flower spikes, with a cute pincushion-like habit that makes it perfect for including in perennial gardens. Earlier blooming than other butterfly bush, which means you get non stop color from early summer clear through frost.

  • Full Sun (8+ hours daily)
  • Bloom Time: Summer-Fall
