Apple Wealthy

Apple Wealthy

This is the first commercial apple variety developed in MN 1860. It is very hardy and has red or yellow-red fruit. The flesh is white with pink veins. It is very juicy, crisp, and has a sweet, tart, strawberry-like flavour. Some call it a 'vinous flavour'. It is great for eating fresh as well as cooking. For eating fresh, let the apple go scarlet on the tree. For pies (Wealthy is excellent in pies), sauce (makes pink-cherry colour sauce) and preserves, use weeks earlier. The Wealthy apple will keep for 3 months. The Wealthy apple tree often bears fruit the first year, and it is an early, heavy bearer. Having a long, intense flowering period, makes it a great pollinator. Furthermore it has a good resistance to apple scab, fire blight and cedar apple rust.

Dogwood Neon Burst

Dogwood Neon Burst

Light up your garden with bright neon, green-gold foliage. New leaves are tinged with bronze and the stems have a rich red hue early in the season. It holds color very well throughout the summer, even in intense heat. And it takes full sun unlike some of its ornamental cousins whose leaves may get a bit sunburned under the noonday sun. Fall foliage becomes a rainbow of purple, red, yellow and orange - quite showy! In winter the stems turn to intense glossy scarlet red. It's recommendable to remove one-third of the oldest branches in spring to encourage new bright growth for next winter's display. Thankfully, Neon Burst does not become a menace by crowding everything out.

Ginkgo Mariken Maidenhair Tree Bushy Selection

Ginkgo Mariken Maidenhair Tree Bushy Selection

This compact, bushy Ginkgo was discovered in 1995 as a witch's broom growing in a Ginkgo tree in the Netherlands.

But 'Mariken' stays very small, its thick, spreading branches loaded with a dense arrangement of foliage. The slow-growing, deciduous conifer makes a high-interest architectural feature, a flat, rounded, form, for either small garden or container.
