New: Early Spring Shrubs

New Gals

Add blooms to your early spring garden with a new evergreen shrub introduction featuring colorful orchid-like blooms.  Polygala ‘Kaminski’ is a new introduction featured today at Squak Mt. with boxwood like foliage reaching 10” tall, and spreading slowly to 24” wide.  Purple and yellow blooms emerge in February and feature a pleasant fragrance.  Her partner is Polygala ‘Rhodoptera’. This variety’s blossoms are pinky-purple and the plant features smaller leaves and a very prostrate habit.

Both Polygalas are hardy to about 0 degrees and desire good drainage to thrive. Place them in full sun or lightly shaded locations where they can be noticed.  Containers, the front of a bed along the walk or a rock garden all allow Polygalas to shine despite their diminutive nature.  Come meet the new “Gals” at Squak Mt. today.
