Abies Korea Aurea

Abies Korea Aurea

This ornamental conifer slowly grows from a broad globe into a broad, upright pyramid, reaching a height of about 6' after 10 years. A mature tree may be up to 25' tall, but only 5' in width. Without staking, the shapes vary from prostrate ground covers to upright trees with weeping limbs, and from narrow spires to miniature buns. New growth is soft golden-yellow-colored. It matures to a deep gold. The undersides of the needles offer a pleasing green color, in spring they glow in silver-white. Foliage texture can be frothy, long needled, finely compressed, or bristly. The stunning, small and erect cones are produced near the top whorl of the branches. They open with a pink and mature to a purple-blue color in late summer and winter.

Aronia Lowscape

Aronia Lowscape

This is a perfect, carefree shrub for creating hedges or mass planting. Very low maintenance. Dark glossy green foliage turns to yellow, orange and red in fall.

Barberry Daybreak

Barberry Daybreak

This plant is like a bright golden version of Crimson Pygmy, with super tight, dense foliage. New growth has orange-reddish color. Fruitless (non-invasive), highly deer and disease resistant. A colorful, very compact barberry perfect for small space gardens. Just like the traditional Gold Barberry, this plant will benefit from good sun exposure. Forms a beautiful small rounded mound that will brighten up your landscape. It lends itself very well for use in foundation plantings, lower growing accents in front of taller plantings, and even a low growing hedge is a possibility. The presence of barbs / thorns, which most all forms of Barberry are known for, also make it a very formidable little barrier too.

Blue Spruce St Marys Broom

Blue Spruce St Marys Broom

This dwarf grows only approx. 1-3"/yr. It has a nice habit and long, widely spaced needles. Though crafted on an 18" trunk, it doesn't grow any taller. New foliage emerges in aqua blue.

Buddleia Pugster Blue

Buddleia Pugster Blue

This dwarf plant has full sized, colorful and fragrant flowers, as well as a dense foliage and good branching. Thick, sturdy stems give extra hardiness for areas which experience winter dieback. This plant attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Heavy pruning isn't needed, but may be done in spring.

Buddleia Pugster Pink

Buddleia Pugster Pink

This dwarf plant has full sized, colorful and fragrant flowers, as well as a dense foliage and good branching. Thick, sturdy stems give extra hardiness for areas which experience winter dieback. This plant attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Heavy pruning isn't needed, but may be done in spring.

Cephalanthus Fiber Optics

Cephalanthus Fiber Optics

Fiber Optics is a distinct improvement over the coarser Cephalanthus occidentalis that grows twice the size of this compact selection. Buttonbush is quite happy in moist conditions, tolerating flooding and wet spring soil. As such it is often used in wetland restoration work, along streams and pond banks. It's also a great plant for low areas in the landscape that don't dry out until late in the season. With exceptional wildlife benefits, the seeds (hard round, reddish-brown capsules) are eaten by birds and the fragrant flowers are a source of nectar for butterflies and bees. When it blooms, the plant will sound like a beehive, so many honeybees are working in it.

Crabapple Show Time

Crabapple Show Time

Vivid fuchsia-pink flowers stand out against dark green-reddish foliage. Upward and wide habit. Small cherry-red fruit add ornamental value for fall and winter. Recommended replacement for 'Prarie Fire' because of its excellent disease resistance. Bronze-green summer foliage.

Diervilla Kodiak Red

Diervilla Kodiak Red

This native cultivar will tolerate dry shade. It has attractive red spring and autumn foliage, red tones on new growth all summer long, and bright yellow flowers from late spring to fall.

Dwarf Birch Golden Treasure

Dwarf Birch Golden Treasure

A 'real' treasure - tiny leaves lighten to a bright yellow-green, darken to a golden yellow, turn a deep red, and finally fade to yellow. Light orange-bronze branches accompany the spectacle.

False Cypress Heatherbun

False Cypress Heatherbun

A dwarf rounded cultivar. It lends an extremely fine and delicate, feathery texture to the landscape composition. Fuzzy medium green foliage with it's scale-like leaves turns bluish in summer and heather purple to plum purple in fall and through winter.

Hydrangea Invincibelle Wee White

Hydrangea Invincibelle Wee White

A compact dwarf version of 'Annabelle'. This low-maintenance shrub ensures season-long beauty from summer to fall. Each pure-white mophead flower is held up on a strong, supportive stem. The blooms start white, aging to a combination of soft pinks and greens - and they keep coming, with fresh buds being produced through autumn. Use this plant as you would 'Annabelle' without worrying about drooping flowers. It will fit in places that 'Annabelle' can't! Its sturdy compact frame reaches just 1-2.5' tall. Great in containers, too.

Ilex Berry Poppins

Ilex Berry Poppins

An excellent, heavily fruiting dwarf winterberry. Ideal for gardeners who want bright winter color and fruit for cutting, but don't have room for a traditional variety. It is heavier fruiting than 'Red Sprite'. This compact variety stands 3-4 foot tall and wide, staying very tidy for a compact garden. Bountiful masses of large, bright, orange-red berries are produced for a colorful winter display. The leaves of 'Berry Poppins' drop early in the season producing a better fruit display. Ilex grow best in a full sun to part shade location. The berries will attract songbirds and make a great addition to cut floral arrangements. Use 'Mr. Poppins' as the male pollinator, for he too is a compact shrub.

Ilex Mr Poppins

Ilex Mr Poppins

Pollinator for 'Berry Poppins'. Specifacitions similar to 'Berry Poppins', except for being fruitless.

Japanese Yew Helen Corbet Taxus

Japanese Yew Helen Corbet Taxus

A beautiful, healthy-looking, lemon-lime colored yew with a dense but fluffy low-mounded habit. The color is especially bright during the spring flush. Our favorite after evaluating a number of yellow selections. Good for hedges or as foundation plant.

Juniperus Oblonga Pendula

Juniperus Oblonga Pendula

Broadly weeping habit, the result of many side leaders and branches that lay close to, then sweep up and away from the trunk. Decorative berries, grayish green foliage, and flaking bark add more interest to this graceful, reliable, cold hardy selection. The needles remain grayish green through the winter. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years. This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water.

Mugo Pine La Cabana

Mugo Pine La Cabana

Good alternative for Pinus Mugo 'Tannenbaum'. This super hardy pine will grow into a sturdy broad pyramidal form. Thick green needles and fat resinous buds add to the visual interest.

Mugo Pine Valley Cushion

Mugo Pine Valley Cushion

Extremely hardy dwarf cultivar that is very compact and dense. Stays low and flat, with attractive reddish new buds complementing the short medium green needles.

Picea Abies Acrocona

Picea Abies Acrocona

A multi-stemmed pyramidal beauty, which will mature into a 20 foot tall tree with a little training. This cultivar of a Norway Spruce is well-known for producing showy, upright, immature ruby-red cones on the branch tips at the end of spring. The color of the cones varies through the seasons from pink and purple to reddish-green, to almost golden-brown, and finally to dark brown. When growing in clusters, the cones will weigh down the very flexible branches, pulling them from their usual upward sweeping form to a downturned direction. During the winter, most of the mature cones will fall off of the tree. Some remnants of older cones may be visible in springtime when the first tiny, bright pink pollen cones begin to emerge, announcing that the new cycle of life is beginning.

Picea Abies Hildburghausen

Picea Abies Hildburghausen

A miniature, perfectly shaped, globe variety of Norway Spruce. Congested tight growth. Very small light green needles. Each shoot grows the same length of approx. 1"/yr, making it look sheared.

Pinus Cembra Westerstede

Pinus Cembra Westerstede

Long, luxurious needles give the small, upright tree a full, fluffy look. It is slower and wider than other cembras and has a graceful branching. Striking cones complement it's attractive color.

Pinus Strobus Macopin

Pinus Strobus Macopin

A multi-stemmed, shrubby tree with an upright, irregular, compact, spreading form. It has a fine texture, and very soft, silvery blue-green needles. Abundant, light brown cones emerge at an early age. This tree grows about 6-8" per year.

Pinus Sylvestris Jeremy

Pinus Sylvestris Jeremy

A slow grower with flattened globe form. Never outgrows the space given. A 10-year-old plant has the size of a basketball. Short bright green needles. Small orange buds adorn the plant in winter.

Privet Cheyenne

Privet Cheyenne

A fast growing, densely branched shrub with fine texture, taking shearing exceptionally well. Ideal for use in privacy screens and trimmed hedges. It has glossy narrow, dark green leaves, turning to a subtle yellow in the fall. If not trimmed it will grow very tall with spreading branches that will have panicles of showy, fragrant white flowers from late spring to early summer, followed by lustrous black berries in fall and winter.

Rhododendron Electric Lights Dbl Pink

Rhododendron Electric Lights Dbl Pink

This first double-flowered azalea is a beauty! In early spring - just after the fresh new foliage emerges - pink, fragrant flowers smother the plant in color. Flower buds are hardy to -30 degrees F. The soft green foliage turns a good burgundy in the fall.

Rose Oso Easy Italian Ice

Rose Oso Easy Italian Ice

This variety rebels against the idea that roses are hard to grow! No spraying, no deadheading, just lots of flowers all season long! Italian Ice's orange buds open to soft yellow flowers melting into pink blushed margins. The soft flower color is set off nicely by its dark green, glossy foliage. Flowers are semi-doubled, with 24-30 petals per bloom. This self-cleaning rose has excellent disease-resistance, abundant flowers, and a nice habit, making it an excellent plant for home gardens.

Spirea Double Play Candy Corn

Spirea Double Play Candy Corn

Candy apple red new foliage starts the show in early spring. As the season progresses, the older foliage transforms to pineapple yellow, which creates a unique contrast with the orangey-red new growth. Dark purple blooms in late spring.

Swiss Stone Pine Algonquin

Swiss Stone Pine Algonquin

A gorgeous tree with a dense, narrow, upright, pyramidal habit, and bluish-green, variegated foliage. It keeps its lower branches longer to the ground than other similar trees. Needles remain dark green through winter. It has furrowed gray bark, is hardy and adaptable to dry soils. Growing at a slow rate, it can - under ideal conditions - be expected to live to a ripe old age of 120 years or more. Think of this as a heritage tree for future generations!
