Plants of the Week

Julia Child Rose Bush

This is a stunning rose, scented with a sweet licorice fragrance that combines old-fashioned charm with disease resistance and blooming performance like the knock out types. They grow to a bit larger than knock-outs, about 5'x5'. 

Coleus

This is a favorite annual plant with a wide selection of varities.  Some prefer sun, some prefer shade, or a mix of both.  They are vigorous plants so if you're planting them in a container, be sure it is large enough to allow growth; although you can trim them back to keep them full and bushy.  They typically outlast most annuals into the late Autumn and you can enjoy them inside too, by taking cuttings and rooting them.
