Penny Mac Hydrangea

This is a popular deciduous shrub with large rounded clusters of either deep blue or pink flowers that bloom repeatedly throughout the warm months on old and new growth. Flower color is dependent on soil acidity. Add aluminum sulfate to the soil to make the flowers more blue or add lime to the soil to make the flowers more pink. This variety is also ideal for cut flower arrangements. Lush, dark green leaves hold their color through the season. Performs best in Zones 5-10 in rich, moist soil and needs regular watering especially during times of extreme heat.

Wax Texanum Ligustrum

This variety of Ligustrum features dense glossy evergreen foliage and produces clusters of white blooms in Spring. A very popular and useful shrub for foundation planting, it is also used for hedges, screens or windbreaks. Texanums are considered very fast growing but are easily maintained and can also be pruned into topiary shapes. Ligustrums do well in full sun or partial shade and are considered drought tolerant but do best if they are watered during prolonged hot, dry spells.
