Western Sand Cherry
Pinky Winky Hydrangea

Western Sand Cherry is known for its unique, leathery grey-green foliage and beautiful white blossoms. It is a popular ornamental shrub in parks and front yards. Both you and the wildlife will love its edible small dark red to purple cherries.

Due to its small stature and spreading qualities, Western Sandcherry is suitable as an underplanting or groundcover.

Many people graft plum and cherry varieties to Western Sand Cherry and use it as rootstock. It is also popular to graft hardy apricots to.

Pinky Winky Hydrangea is an adaptable and tolerant hydrangea variety with unusual flowers. In late summer, clusters of white blooms emerge, transforming to shades of pink and white. This two-toned effect is outstanding and will make a stunning flowering addition to your yard.

Try Pinky Winky Hydrangea in mass plantings or as an accent plant on its own, just make sure you mulch the root system to help insulate in colder climates.
