Wisteria is an elegant garden favorite, providing delicate, fragrant pendulous blooms in spring. Unfortunately, traditional Wisteria only offer these desirable blooms for 2, maybe 3 weeks in spring. Lavender Falls Wisteria PP19655 isn’t your traditional Wisteria. This new Wisteria, developed by breeder Pat Tam of Tulsa, Okla., is hands down the earliest blooming Wisteria, not to mention that young plants bloom just as profusely as mature ones. In early spring, 9- to 20-inch long lavender flower clusters emerge just before the foliage. And just when you think Lavender Falls has maxed itself out, it blooms again and again, continuing to bloom every month of the season! Lavender Falls Wisteria is a strongly growing vine that needs good support and will romantically cover a freestanding pergola, arbor or trellis. A light grape-like fragrance adds to the enchantment of this picturesque effect. Use Lavender Falls Wisteria in the landscape for shade, screening, or as a specimen tree when specially trained.

While perennials and annuals are known for their colorful flowers in spring and summer, a mix of shrubs provide interest to your garden year-round. From evergreens to repeat blooming hydrangeas and azaleas, Garden Debut® has it all. Not to mention the benefits planting shrubs can provide to your lifestyle. A recent video from BASF reports that people who are around plants are generally more empathetic, less worried and in higher spirits. Plus, forty-five minutes of gardening is equivalent to 30 minutes of aerobics. That means planting, weeding and watering can all attribute to a healthier you, emotionally and physically. Ornamental shrubs can also increase memory retention up to 20 percent. Send those kids outdoors before they start their homework! Or better yet, help them study in an outdoor space where plants are visible. The American Society of Landscape Architects says, when selling your home, you can recover from 100 to 200 percent of every dollar you invest in your landscaping. And well landscaped homes tend to sell 6 weeks faster than non-landscaped homes. Money magazine says even an amateur can get a professional-looking landscape for $500 to $3,000 worth of plants and materials if he or she is willing to do the work. Start investing in a better lifestyle, and check out the following shrubs & vines from Garden Debut®.

True to form, during a visit with several Greenleaf Nursery employees, Margie sent a few of these Pieris back to our El Campo, Texas, location with instructions to “See what these will do.” As Greenleaf Nursery began to trial these varieties, they noticed a particular plant with better leaf spot resistance and heat tolerance than your typical Pieris.

Every gardener is sad to see spring go! They’re looking for ways to lengthen the bloom season each year, and Garden Debut® is ready to meet their needs with a new series of daylilies. From spring to frost these rebloomers provide non-stop blooms. Developed by breeder Dr. Ted Petit, world-renowned neuroscientist and daylily breeder, Enjoy 24/7® Daylilies are genetically superior to older more common varieties of daylily. Unlike most daylilies, which rely on day length to determine bloom cycle, Enjoy 24/7® daylilies rely on temperature, preferring a range of 45 degrees to 95 degrees F. Meaning that while most daylilies bloom from late spring through summer, these perennials nearly double the bloom season by producing loads of blooms from early spring to late fall. Plus, their evergreen foliage allows them to double as an ornamental grass in winter. Don’t pack up and ship out after spring! Fill your garden with reblooming Enjoy 24/7® Daylilies from Garden Debut®, and extend your bloom season.

In the Great Plains where sustained wind speeds average between 35 and 53 mph, weak limbs and loose shingles can blow off and cause flying object damage to structures and unprotected windows. Old or weak structures can sustain minor damage, and shallow-rooted trees may even be pushed over if wet conditions are present. Soil erosion is also caused by high winds and heavy rainfall. Heavy rainfall can strip land of soil nutrients, and nutrient deficient soil is more susceptible to soil erosion caused by wind. Steep slopes can also be hazardous and unstable during heavy rains when landslides are common. Fortunately evergreen conifers bring more to your landscape than color each winter. Groundcover Golden Pacific™ Juniper is a perfect addition where soil erosion is a problem. This low maintenance Juniper isn’t hindered by nutrient deficient soil. Its spreading roots also hold soil together, preventing hillsides from giving way during heavy rains. In addition to protecting your home from wind damage, trees such as Sterling Frost™ Deodar Cedar and Giokumo Cryptomeria provide electricity savings if planted as a windbreak. In a windy site, a windbreak can account for up to 75 percent wind reduction with a 20 to 40 percent reduction in heating fuel consumption. In a calmer spot, wind barriers can still reduce fuel use by 10 percent or more. From windbreaks to erosion control, Garden Debut® conifers can aid in all your environmental needs. Sterling Frost™ Deodar Cedar Cedrus deodara ‘Grester’ A hardy, conical growing selection with weeping branch ends and blue-green needles. Will reach 40-70 feet at maturity.

Beautiful deep green coloring all year long with a coppery winter color in exposed areas. It is cold hardy to USDA Zone 5 and prefers full sun. Golden Pacific™ Juniper Juniperus conferta ‘sPg-3-016’ A shore Juniper with golden yellow color that is at its brightest in full sun.

Recent research from the USDA says, “Healthy, mature trees add an average of 10 percent to a property’s value,” and “trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30 percent and can save 20–50 percent in energy used for heating.” Adding trees to your landscape might be the best investment you can make, if selected properly. Tree selection should be based on a number of factors, including space, environmental value and appraisal value. When planting under powerlines, consider the mature height of your tree. In addition to its ornamental value, The Rising Sun™ Redbud matures at only 8 to 12 feet tall, eliminating future need to prune branches away from powerlines. While larger than The Rising Sun™ Redbud, shade tree Fire Master™ Black Gum attracts migrating birds for the avid bird watcher due to its vibrant red foliage and black fruit in early fall. And if planted on the west side of a house, provide optimum shade value, reducing cooling costs. Other larger shade trees, such as Rockford Road™ London Planetree, which reaches 75 to 100 feet tall, can also reduce cooling costs and are often included in home appraisals. According to the landscape tree appraisal formula, this London Planetree could value anywhere from $2,500 to $5,000 at maturity. Increase the value of your home today by choosing one of the following Garden Debut® trees!

These fruit trees bring something to the market not yet available. With Urban Apples®, suburban and apartment dwellers can grow their own produce in limited square footage, and the hardy Satsumas push the limits on temperature, reaching at least a half a zone colder than other oranges. Additionally, every fruit tree in the Garden Debut® collection is an excellent choice for a patio tree, meaning you don’t have to have land to grow organically and you don’t have to live in the south to have fresh oranges. Our fruit trees can be grown in any size container. Containers can then be brought indoors when temperatures get too low. We recommend repotting your trees into a bigger container every 3 to 4 years to prevent the tree from becoming root bound and stunting its production. Those are exceptional improvements to traditional ideas of edible gardening, and we haven’t even mentioned the monetary savings! At its full capacity, an Urban Apple® from Garden Debut® produces 33 pounds of apples per year. According to the USDA, apples retail at an average $1.32 per pound and organic apples average $2.08 per pound. That’s an average annual savings of $44 per tree; $69 if you’re already buying organically. Don’t miss out on the advantages of edible gardening.
