Cephalanthus Sugar Shack Shrubs for Sale Online
Cephalanthus or Button Bushes have long been prized as a native shrub. Sadly its size prohibited its use in most landscapes. Not anymore! Cephalanthus Sugar Shack has reduced the size in half and added colorful red fruit. The odd-shaped fragrant white flowers (think Pincushions) create a delightful plant that shines from spring to fall.
Annabelle Hydrangea produces stunning pure white flowers, much larger than others of the species - up to 12 inches across! Blooms appear in late spring through summer, often continuing into fall. Strong, straight stems hold the huge flower heads up well, despite heavy rain. Give Annabelle Hydrangea plenty of room to show off its spectacular beauty.
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Cephalanthus Sugar Shack plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Annabelle Hydrangea to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally occuring beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardeners best friend and can help guarantee your success.
