Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Jelena’

Jelena Witch Hazel

Rich coppery-orange flowers on this unusual shrub add blazing color to the winter landscape. Flowers with wavy, strap-like petals appear on the bare branches. Plant near entries and patios, where their sweet fragrance can be enjoyed. Deciduous.

 

Galanthus Nivalis

Snowdrop

Best massed in sweeping drifts in areas where they can naturalize, such as woodland margins or in lawns under large deciduous trees. Also effective in groupings in rock gardens, border fronts, in front of flowering shrubs or along walks or paths. Mix with other early flowering bulbs such as Eranthis (winter aconite). Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, humusy soils in part shade.

Euphorbia Amygdaloides ‘Ruby Glow’

Euphorbia amygdaloides, commonly called wood spurge, is a bushy, evergreen, compact, free-branching euphorbia that typically grows in an upright rounded mound to 12-20” tall. It is native to woodland margins in Europe, western Asia and the Mediterranean.

Helleborus Argutifolius ‘Ice & Roses’

Hellebore

These aristocratic, evergreen plants bring an architectural quality to the shady garden. Most bloom in early winter in mild climates and in late winter or very early spring where the ground freezes hard. Resistant to both deer and voles, these plants are long-lived and provide exquisite blooms at a time when flowers are a scarce delight.

 

Sarcococca Ruscifolia ‘Fragrant Sweet Box’

A beautiful shrub for shady areas! White spring flowers are small, but very fragrant. Blooms are followed by bright red ornamental fruit. Forms natural espalier against a wall. An outstanding choice for dry shade gardens where other plants won’t grow! Evergreen.

As well as when you come to Falling Water Gardens you will be able to scan the plant signs to get further information about the plants and flowers.

fallingwaterdesignsplantsWhat is a QR code? In the simplest terms a QR code is a bar code. Most smart phones come equipped with a bar code/QR code reader that will scan the QR code and bring you to the web page of information about our plants. From there you can bookmark the page. If yours does not contain a QR code reader already, you can download one for free through your phone’s app store.
