Blooms and Berries in the Nursery Now

We have had a cool summer for the most part here at Peacock Horticultural Nursery, with foggy mornings and low to mid-seventies in the afternoon.    Not that I am complaining, as lower temperatures mean less watering for me.   The following are  some of the plants that are blooming or bearing fruit this month:

  • Asclepias physocarpa (Milkweed)  Great plant to attract butterflies to your garden.  4-6′ tall with white flowers followed by lime green, balloon-like seed pods.
  • Clerodendron bungei ‘Pink Diamond’ (Variegated Glory Bower)  – A beautiful 30″ shrub for part shade in USDA zones 8 – 9.  Blooms 3 – 4  months with fragrant,  pink  flowers.  Foliage is variegated with white and various shades of green.
  • Clerodendron trichotomum (Harlequin Glorybower) –  A small suckering tree to about 15′  for sun to part shade in USDA zones 6 – 9.  Flowers are very fragrant and white, and in the fall bear bright blue fruits.
