The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s
GOLD MEDAL PLANT AWARD
PLANT PORTRAITS 1999

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Gold Medal Plant Award program honours little-known and underused woody plants of exceptional merit and promotes their use. Awards have been given to 64 plants since 1988. All are superb garden plants, and we hope you’ll find an opportunity to use them in your garden or business.

Acer palmatum ‘Waterfall’ is a pest-free, attractive Japanese Maple in all seasons. Its green leaves are larger and are more deeply dissected than other members of the dissectum group. Its cascading habit makes it a knockout in the landscape. ‘Waterfall’grows slowly to 12’ with an 18 ‘ spread. Hardy in Canadian zones 6-8

Enkianthus perulatus ‘J.L.Pennock’ represents the first distinctive selection of this plant for spectacular and early purple to red all colour. Spring brings white flowers to this pest- and disease-resistant shrub. A fine twiggy habit and restrained growth rate (7’ high x 10’ wide) would delight any home gardener. Plant Enkianthus in full sun to partial shade and acidic soil. Hardy in Canadian zones 6-7
