Welcome to Saunders Brothers
A Family Tradition
Since 1915 when brothers Sam, Dick, Doc, William, and Massie formed a partnership, family has been the center of our business. The brothers stood for integrity, morality and honesty. Business deals were made with a handshake or by a man’s word.
'Standing Ovation' keeps a tight, upright habit throughout the season. The sturdy, spiky stems start out bluish-green and mature in the fall with a brilliant display of oranges, reds, yellows and purplish-browns.
'Phenomenal' is aptly named for superior fragrance, uniform mounding plant habit, resistance to disease and extreme tolerance to heat and humidity. Equally beautiful planted in mass, in the perennial border or in patio containers.
Easy to grow small tree which simply can't be matched for year-round beauty. In spring, the handsome leaves emerge, each sporting dramatically deep veins that make the plant stand out in the landscape. As the season progresses, the leaves grow larger and develop a long, twisting tip. Come August, when everything else is winding down, Temple of Bloom seven-son flower is just coming into its own, as it becomes covered in big clusters of fragrant white flowers that hummingbirds and other pollinators flock to. They last for weeks before gracefully falling to the ground to reveal vivid red, fan-like bracts, which make it look like the plant is blooming again in a completely different color. As winter comes and the leaves drop, the plant's elegant frame is revealed, along with amazing light tan peeling bark.
Spirea is an old landscape staple, so what could one do that could possible earn it superlatives? Well, seedless and non-invasive would be a start; non-stop blooming would be even better. And these are exactly what makes Double Play Doozie spirea the most beautiful, innovative, ground-breaking spirea to ever grace a landscape. Like all of the Double Play® spirea series, the show begins in early spring, when the foliage emerges in blazing brilliant color - in this case, deep red. By late spring, the flowers begin to emerge, a bright, glowing purple-red that truly sings in the landscape. And as summer comes on, the show doesn't stop: it just keeps flowering, and flowering, and flowering. Because it produces no seeds, it puts all of its energy into flowering! It does it all with the same good looks, drought tolerance, and deer resistance that you expect from spirea, too.
