Camellia japonica 'Elegans Splendor' (U.S., 1971)
Little Mischief Shrub Rose Grow low-care 'Little Mischief' for a burst of hot pink flowers all summer. It's heat and disease resistant, too, so you can enjoy it in any kind of weather.
Don't let this little beauty fool you -- though it's small, lily-of-the-valley packs a big fragrance in its nodding white or pink bell-shape flowers. It's a tough, low-care groundcover you can practically plant and forget in shady spots.
Double-file Viburnum - These are no ordinary flowers. They sit up above the leaves, almost as if they are floating several inches above the branch. So even though doublefile viburnum is a large shrub with coarse-textured leaves, when it’s in flower it looks light and airy. The flowers typically last 3 – 4 weeks. In the fall, small berries appear but they are not overly ornamental. The leaves turn a deep purple in the autumn before falling off for the winter.
