Elder ‘Black Tower’.

Elderberry ‘Morden Golden Glow’.

Elder ‘Black Tower’ (Sambucus nigra). A real drama queen, this black elder has a sturdy columnar form with jet-black foliage and pink blooms all summer. New leaves emerge in a bright, lime green and flowers give way in the fall to black berries which attract birds. Grows up to eight feet tall and four feet wide. Zone 3.

Elderberry ‘Morden Golden Glow’. A favourite from 2014, this introduction from the Morden Research Station features fine-textured golden foliage that ages to a rich green. Foliage often emerges with a reddish tint, along with showy, creamy-white flowers in spring that are followed by red berries. A great large shrub for cold climates, it will reach 48 to 60 inches in height with a similar spread. Stunning. Zone 3.

Hydrangea ‘Bloomstruck’ Endless Summer. With ‘Bloomstruck’ and other Endless Summer hydrangeas, you can change the bloom colour by altering the pH of the soil. Try the Endless Summer colour kits to get the bloom colour you want. ‘Bloomstruck’ has incredibly beautiful red-purple stems, dark green leaves with red petioles and red veins, which provide great contrast in the garden. Zone 4.

Hydrangea ‘Firelight’ (Hydrangea paniculata). A bigger and later bloomer, ‘Firelight’ has white summer flowers that turn fire-engine red in the fall. Hardy and easy to grow, it's no wonder ‘Firelight’ is a best seller. Its large upright panicles are packed with beautiful flowers.

Hydrangea ‘Little Quick Fire’. A dwarf version of ‘Quick Fire’ and a long-time garden favourite, this variety is short and stocky (three feet by three feet). An early bloomer, with white flowers turning to pink later in the summer, it is drought-tolerant and fits in nicely with any landscape. Zone 4.

Rose ‘Never Alone’. A deep, red edge gives way to a white or yellow-tinged centre on the blooms of this dwarf shrub. With its spectacular colour all season, Never Alone is perfect for containers or the garden. This hardy Cana- dian variety not only looks good but is a symbol of the compassion shown by the Never Alone Foundation, a charity that supports cancer patients and their families. A contribution from the sale of each rose will benefit cancer projects across Canada.


Tatarian maple 'O'Canada'. A hardy, thriving vari- ety with an oriental look; it is a wonderful addition to the landscape. Flower panicles in shades of yellow-white bloom from April through May, and the seeds are a beau- tiful pinkish colour. In fall, the dark green leaves turn a brilliant shade of red. This is a rapid growing tree and will reach up to 25 feet at maturity. To grow as a hedge, plant trees two feet apart. x Hydrangea ‘Little Quick Fire’. Hydrangea ‘Firelight’.
