Best New

Gaultheria procumbens (Gaultheria procumbens) « Gaulthier a Pearl » has won the title of best new products of the international trade fair GrootGroenPlus-2016 and was awarded the gold medal of the jury of the Royal Boskoop garden society. Its name contains the word "pearl" and, indeed, the exceptionally large, pretty white fruits look like pearls. It is a compact and very hardy plant for universal use - indoors in containers or in the garden, on the balcony or terrace.

Gold medals

A gold medal was also awarded to Kempfer 's larch "Magic of Gold" (Larix kaempferi " Magic Gold "). Its name arose due to the beautiful yellow needles (this is generally the first variety of larch with yellow needles, which does not burn under the sun in spring and summer). The plant is vertically oriented but bushy and easy to cut.

Thuja western "Miss Frosty" (Thuja occidentalis " Miss Frosty ") has a name that can be literally translated as "Miss Snowman" and it was obtained not only thanks to external data (young shoots have a real white color), but also for this quality, like endurance. This compact coniferous plant is like a continuation of the well-known western thuja variety "Smaragd". Due to its compact spherical shape, this thuja will surely find a wide variety of uses in the garden. In 10 years it can reach a height of up to 1 meter, a width of about 60 centimeters. It is extremely unpretentious - it grows well both on sandy soils and on clay, it can be planted in full sun and partial shade.

Common lingonberry "Ball lightning" or "Fireballs" in literal translation (Vaccinium vitis - idaea " Fireballs ") are all covered with many very large red berries that remain on the plant for a long time. This distinguishes the plant from the general row, however, as well as its early flowering and early fruit set, which are edible. Prefers cool partial shade, well-drained acidic soils, damp place. The plant is very hardy, for a wide variety of garden uses and looks good in single or mixed containers.

Juniper scaly "Little Joanna" (Juniperus squamata " Little Joanna ") - a new Dutch variety. It beautifully spreads the branches horizontally, but does not become very wide and remains a short, compact coniferous decoration. Will easily fit into any garden landscape, but can also be used as a pot plant. A healthy variety that multiplies easily and grows quickly.

Skimmia japonica " White Globe " is an unpretentious, beautiful, compact growing shrub, ideal for a small garden or for a container. After ten years, the "White Ball" will become about 1 m high and 1.20 m wide. Unlike other varieties, the inflorescences remain whitish, even when it gets colder. Over time, small sultans of inflorescences hang beautifully, and most importantly, they are also very fragrant.

Yew berry "Anna" (Taxus baccata " Anna ") has a standard semi-round shape for this plant, and to get the right ball you need a little pruning. The dark green needles give the plant a noble look. In addition, the good response to pruning makes the plant extremely suitable for small to medium sized hedges. It is a frost-resistant variety.

Now let's digress from the novelties and talk about one plant that is always presented at exhibitions and, when it gets into the frame, attracts everyone's attention. Both last year and this season I received several questions about what kind of plant it is. So, look - this is German medlar (Mespilus germanica)(not to be confused with the Japanese medlar, which has bright orange fruits, it is now often sold in our grocery stores). Since the German medlar requires a warm summer and a mild winter, it is found in the wild on the southern coast of the Crimea, in Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, South Ossetia, in the North Caucasus. Many lovers grow it in the southern regions, but in central Russia it is quite difficult to do this, not only because of the climate, although in many sources you can read that it is winter-hardy. For example, it has quite a lot of soil requirements, the soils must be neutral or slightly acidic, and it also absolutely does not tolerate stagnant groundwater in the area of ​​the root system.
