New in the Nursery: Vines
With an abundance of new structures popping up in our gardens, we're on the hunt for colorful, climbing vines to match. Two of our latest nursery arrivals fit the bill, ready to scale even the tallest trellis in a single season. One is remarkably fragrant, while the other offers some of summer's most beautiful blooms. Read on to learn more about these lofty additions to the garden.
'Fiona Sunrise' Jasmine: Growing up to 10 feet in a season, this vivid vine is sure to be a garden favorite thanks to its wonderfully fragrant blooms and bright, golden-green foliage. Hardy in hot and humid climates, its clustered flowers will appear from midsummer into early autumn. Plant in full sun with well-drained soil for optimal growth-- bright sunlight also makes the blooms more fragrant. Prune your jasmine vine in late autumn; flowering occurs on new growth, so you'll have more blooms to enjoy the following spring.
Giant Nightshade: Native to Costa Rica, this tropical vine thrives in full sun to partial shade with moderate watering. Set against dark green foliage, its clusters of large, purple blooms will appear continuously throughout the summer months, fading from deep violet to near white. This vigorous climber lives up to its name, growing up to 15 feet in a single season! Also known as the Paradise Vine, it can be pruned and overwintered indoors to enjoy again next summer.
Throughout the season, our plant team highlights their freshest additions to the garden with New in the Nursery. Check in at your local store to take home these newly-arrived blooms.
