plant spotlight: White redbud

"The elegant, arching branches of the white Eastern redbud (Cercis canadnesis var. alba) add a romantic touch to the garden. Small white flowers cover each branch in the spring, followed by green heart-shaped leaves. In the fall, the foliage turns a showy yellow. The redbud is a member of the Fabaceae (pea or bean) family, and it forms brown seedpods, similar to sugar pea pods, that remain through the winter."

Plant Spotlight: Red valerian

Fast growing and and a great polilinator!    "The big, bushy perennial reaches about 3 feet tall and wide at maturity. Although it is a full-sun lover, it looks best outside afternoon exposures in the summer. Red valerian features many named varieties in new shades of red, coral and white. This allows you to blend them into beautiful drifts or use individuals where needed in foundation beds or as accents along a picket fence.
