Clematis 'Cardinal Wyszynski'
These varieties begin to bloom in early summer, with the first flush of flowers appearing on the previous year's growth. This is followed by a second flush flowers appearing on the new growth.

Cherry Evans Bali
Cherry Evans Bali
From a landscaping sense, Evans cherry features beautiful white flowers in spring, the fruits are very showy, and the trees are quite compact in habit. But let's be honest - this plant stands apart because of its fruit. Evans cherry is a phenomenal producer of large bright red cherries, juicy as you can imagine, with small pits. The tree is self-pollinating, so a second variety is not required for fruit production.
