Bailey’s Plant Picks of the Week

Every week we’re publishing a NEW Plant Picks of the Week story, showcasing our Plant Specialists’ top plant picks. Get ready to be inspired!

We recently asked Bailey Lackey to share her top plant picks. Here’s what she had to say:


Forest Pansy Redbud

Cercis canadensis ‘Forest Pansy’

A spectacular spring bloomer, with very showy pink to purple flowers held tightly on bare branches in early spring; coarse heart-shaped leaves emerge deep purple and stay that way; an incredible color accent tree for specimen use in the home landscape


Lollipop® Flowering Crab

Malus ‘Lollizam’

Here’s an accent tree quite unlike anything you’ve ever seen before; a dense bushy globular head is grafted onto a standard, maintains its rounded form with minimal pruning; absolutely smothered in white flowers in spring, showy red fruit in fall


Show Off® Forsythia

Forsythia x intermedia ‘Mindor’Service Berry

A compact shrub suited to borders or in the garden; superior, brilliant yellow bell-shaped flowers in spring along the branches and deep green foliage have made this a garden favorite for early spring color


Yellow Birch

Betula allegheniensis

A large and spreading tree with a graceful character and consistently ravishing fall color; bark is interesting but not as showy as other birches; best used in larger landscapes


Coralburst Flowering Crab

Malus ‘Coralburst’

One of the finest flowering crab selections, this is a dwarf variety featuring a froth of double coral-pink flowers in spring and reddish-orange fruit in fall; needs well-drained soil and full sun, the perfect focal point in a mixed garden composition
