Re: hydrangea recommendation??


Theresa,
I have the AHS green book - the one that came out b4 A-Z.  It is laid out in
order of height, seasonal interest, and color with icons for exposure and
zonal listing.  I'm looking under Shrubs, small (5 ft and under) for part
shade in zone 8-9.  Here's a few:

xGaulnettya 'Wisely Pearl' - white - spring
Ledum groenlandicum  (Labrador Tea)  - white - spring
Meziesa cilicalyx var. purpurea  - purple-pink - spring
Mahonia aquifolium  (Mtn Grape Holly)  - yellow - spring
Gardenia jasminoides 'Fortuniana - white - summer
Hydrangea involucrata 'Hortensis - white -summer - Z 7-9
Gaultheria shallon - pink - summer (but only Z 6-8 - maybe you'd be too hot)
Hydrangea serrulat 'Bluebird'  -  purple/blue  - summer
Potentillas in red and orange - summer -but only to Zone 8
Skimmia japonica 'Fructu-albo'  -  white - winter & spring  EG  (need M&F)
Sarcococca humilis - white flrs, blk fruit  - winter   EG
Skimmia japonica ssp. reevesiana - wht flrs spring, red fruit winter (need
M&F)
