Comment

Erect form. Pruning Group 1. Excellent as specimen plants or as group plantings in a border or in containers. Provide shelter from drying winds.

"At close range, the coarse, hairy, dark green leaves of this hydrangea belie its quiet beauty. In August, flattened heads of tightly packed, blue purple flowers are surrounded by mauve florets that seem to glow as the light fades. This deciduous shrub has a naturally rounded form and the flowers are long-lasting and attractive to bees and butterflies. It makes an elegant statement towards the back of a partly shady border, particularly when planted with other hydrangeas.

Hydrangeas do not like to dry out. In dry weather, soak the roots with a hose and the plant will usually recover. Remove faded flowerheads in spring after the danger of frosts, cutting back the flowered stems to a strong pair of buds. Take out misplaced or diseased shoots. Mulch young plants with a well-rotted manure or compost in spring. Once established, remove a quarter to a third of the shoots to the base of the plant." from Crocus.

"H. aspera Villosa Group is a large upright deciduous shrub with large, velvety ovate leaves. Flowers mauve, in flat heads to 20cm in width, with white sterile florets, in late summer" from Royal Horticultural Society.

"Bees love the flowers, the purplish-blue colour of which can be seen in the bees' pollen sacs as they buzz around the plant." from iGarden in Australia - "Allow me to share some of my enthusiasm and interests in gardening. This is more than just about plants: it's also about the people involved in gardening; their books and gardens; planting schemes; choosing appropriate plant types; colour selection... There is plenty to think and read about in iGarden with a focus on the plants I know best and those that do especially well in my garden in Sydney".

Available from Crocus and BlueBell Arboretum & Nursery in the UK with Gardening Milan Havlis in South Bohemia, Czech, Whitehouse Nursery in Australia and via Plant Lust in America with 230 other Hydrangeas.

'Bloodgood'
(Japanese Maple)
 

Purple-Red
 

August
 

180 x 180
(450 x 450)
 

Forms a gracefully, branched, rounded crown. The young foliage is brilliant red, turning only slighter darker purplish-red throughout the season, then back to brilliant red in the autumn. The leaves are generally 5-lobed with slightly serrated edges.

acerpalmatumbloodgoodfolt1a1a
 

Mulch the roots with compost or bark in the autumn to prevent them getting frozen during the winter. Protect from cold winds and late frosts, which kill the juvenile foliage.

Specimen/accent or group around the periphery of the border or rock garden. Multi-stemmed shrub form is effective in small groupings in shrub borders.
Many shrubs and flowers provide double duty as a companion plant to Japanese maples with the added bonus of attracting beneficial wildlife -- such as butterfly and hummingbirds -- to your garden. Sweet William (Dianthus) produces pleasantly fragrant blooms that attract butterflies that drink the sweet nectar. See Bee-pollinated plants.

Acer palmatum

144 x 180
(360 x 450)
 

Very deeply cut, 5-lobed, Dark Red-Purple foliage turns bronze then scarlet in autumn.

acerpalmatumburgundylacefolt1a1a
 

Plant in a sheltered area to protect from wind. Submerge pot in a bucket of water before planting. Water well during establishment. Add Osmocote type feed on planting and each spring. It does not require regular pruning but dead, damaged and crossing branches can be removed in April when the plant is in full growth.

Ideal small tree to grow in a tub and perfect for creating that Japanese feel in borders or rockeries. Plants that thrive in acidic soil tend to make good companion plants for Japanese maples. Begonias, gardenias and rhododendrons are a few acid-loving plants that you can plant next to your maple.

72 x 120
(180 x 300)
 

Deeply cut, 7-lobed, Pale Crimson-Green foliage covered with a white pubescence. The entire tree is usually covered with an abundance of beautiful little red blooms. As temperatures warm and summer approaches the heavily textured leaves turn olive green complimented by the now ripe red samaras adorning the tree. This turns a traffic stopping bright red that literally glows in the autumn.

acerpalmatumchitoseyamafolt1a1a
 

Grow in a moist but well-drained soil. Water in summer if necessary. Leaf colour is best in partial shade, although full sun can be tolerated. Leaf scorch can be caused by lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure.

Use as speciman, or Hedge/Screen.
When planted underneath Japanese maples, groundcovers surround the tree with a blanket of greenery instead of drab dirt. For example, planting purple sheep’s burr (Acaena inermis 'Purpurea') for a groundcover that produces brilliant purplish foliage with a scalloped edge will add a burst of color to the area.

acerfolpalmatumdissectumatropurpureum1a1a

Mound-forming form. Pruning Group 1 from late Autumn to Midwinter. This is a slow-growing tree or shrub forming a compact dome of deeply cut red-purple leaves.

Its size makes it suitable for a small gardens as a hedge or as screening, or for growing in a large container. One of the most popular Acer varieties primarily for its autumn colour, when the foliage turns an eye-catching red. Hosta (Hosta) is a perennial that -- even though it produces showy blooms on tall spikes -- is grown for its attractive foliage. Depending on the cultivar, hosta is hardy in zones 3 through 9 and produces foliage in varying colors. Another option is Pelargonium, a perennial shrub that grows in zones 9 through 15. Pelargoniums produce tropical-like, showy blooms in various colors and shapes that make a striking companion for the Japanese maple.

Suckering Arching form. Pruning Group 3.
This shrub can look dismal, because it only flowers on fresh growth, but if properly pruned, it is one of the earliest and prettiest spring features.
Growing kerria is easy - This is the shrub to choose for that impossible shady corner. It is not fussy about soil either - neither clay nor lime will bother it. For the best results plant in a rich loam, though remember that it can be invasive. Pruning is important too, or it will soon look scruffy: remove the old shoots that die back after flowering, or cut out all the flowered branches as they fade, leaving room for the elegant new wands that will bear next year's flowers. You can be quite brutal; whether you cut it as low as the new shoots, or right down to the ground, it doesn't seem to mind.

Use in shrub border for vertical effect or an open position in a woodland garden.
Good companions - If you have reservations about yellow plants, grow kerria near white flowers to tone down the colour - perhaps at the back of some Daphne mezereum f. alba, Pulmonaria 'Sissinghurst White', snowdrops or white hellebores, whose flowering should coincide with the greeny-yellow bud phase of the kerria, and the start of its flowers. The kerria will outlast many of these plants, so you could try a second ensemble, maybe teaming it with crimson Paeonia delavayi and the large Dicentra spectabilis.

centaurea montana foliage
 

Upright form, sparsley-branched. Pruning Group 1.
The older stems of tree peonies have a tendency to become brittle and snap, so cut these back to the ground in autumn every two or three years.

This magnificent tree peony is ideal for a sunny border, planted among shrubs that flower later in the summer. Plant spring bulbs around the base to prolong the season of interest.

Upright form, sparsley-branched. Pruning Group 1.

Hybrids of Paeonia lutea hybrids have some characteristics that make them quite different from the Japanese, Chinese and French varieties belonging to the Moutan group: the yellow or variegated flowers of many varieties, their rapid growth, their remarkable vigor and their late flowering.

Dark Green
 

Upright form, sparsely branched. Pruning Group 1.
It's easy to grow but slow-growing. It displays dark green leaves that are blue-green beneath, and large, silken blossoms 6 to 12 inches across in late spring and early summer. The plants maintain a graceful branching structure throughout the winter.

It is possible to keep tree peonies in pots; however, it is important to note that the plant should be kept outside as much as possible, especially during the winter months so it has the opportunity to go dormant.  This process is crucial for bud formation.

7. When I do not have my own or ones from mail-order nursery photos , then from March 2016, if you want to start from the uppermost design levels through to your choice of cultivated and wildflower plants to change your Plant Selection Process then use the following galleries:-

  • Create and input all plants known by Amateur Gardening inserted into their Sanders' Encyclopaedia from their edition published in 1960 (originally published by them in 1895) into these
    • Stage 1 - Garden Style Index Gallery,
      then
    • Stage 2 - Infill Plants Index Gallery being the only gallery from these 7 with photos (from Wikimedia Commons) ,
      then
    • Stage 3 - All Plants Index Gallery with each plant species in its own Plant Type Page followed by choice from Stage 4a, 4b, 4c and/or 4d REMEMBERING THE CONSTRAINTS ON THE SELECTION FROM THE CHOICES MADE IN STAGES 1 AND 2
    • Stage 4a - 12 Bloom Colours per Month Index Gallery,
    • Stage 4b - 12 Foliage Colours per Month Index Gallery with
    • Stage 4c - Cultivation, Position, Use Index Gallery and
    • Stage 4d - Shape, Form Index Gallery
    • Unfortunately, if you want to have 100's of choices on selection of plants from 1000's of 1200 pixels wide by up to 16,300 pixels in length webpages, which you can jump to from almost any of the pages in these 7 galleries above, you have to put up with those links to those choices being on
      • the left topic menu table,
      • the header of the middle data table and on
      • the page/index menu table on the right of every page of those galleries.
