Canada Blooms 2018: Three Annual, Perennial and Landscape plants of the year.


Here are Canada Blooms Plants of the Year for 2018. Annual, Landscape and Perennial.
I am in love with the colours of these plants! Aren't they all so beautiful?  It's time to start planning your gardens. What plants would you be adding this year?
Did you notice that purple is also the colour of the year for Spring plants? Get inspired!

Let's learn a bit about these beautiful plants:

Annual Petunia ‘Supertunia® Bordeaux™’plants growths vigorously. They look beautiful as fillers and spillers in containers. They are also great landscape plants. It produces medium to large sized flowers. They attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

Benefits:
  • Continuous Bloom or Rebloomer (blooms are spectacular!)
  • Long Blooming
  • Heat Tolerant (no worries about a hot Summer!)
  • Deadheading Not Necessary (neat!)
  • Drought Tolerant (no worries about a dry Summer!)
Perennial – Heuchera ‘Primo Black Pearl’ is a beautiful black foliage with ruffled edges plant with rosy purple undersides. It grows well in both shade or sun and produces white flowers that bloom in mid-summer. It attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.

Benefits:
  • Foliage Interest (a stunning background or contrast with other plants!)
  • Winter Interest (check those raindrops running down the leaves. So beautiful!)
  • Salt Tolerant 
  • Deer Resistant
Shrub/Landscape – Weigela ‘Spilled Wine‘ shares the fabulous deep purple foliage and bright pink flowers of the classic Wine & Roses® weigela but with a shorter growth habit. This beautiful plant grows wider than tall, making it the perfect choice for edging beds or walkways and for incorporating under windows in your landscape design. Like all weigela, it is deer resistant and very easy to care for.


Benefits:
  • Very colorful even when not in bloom
  • Deer resistant
  • Foliage Interest (stunning foliage!)
