Japanese maples provide grace and beauty to a shady bed. Varieties grow from 6-10 feet tall up to 20 feet. Some have green leaves, some burgundy. All turn brilliant colors in the fall in shades of yellow, orange and bright red. The smaller types grow well in pots for a lovely accent on a patio. We have a nice variety of shapes, sizes and colors from which to choose.
When the spring flowering shrubs burst into bloom we know that spring has arrived. Most of these spring beauties are very tough. Plant them in a sunny spot and water them for the first year, then after that they can survive on their own with little care. Choose from bright yellow Forsythia, graceful double bridal wreath spiraea and flowering quince. We also have our first shipment of repeat blooming Bloomerang lilacs in now.
Plant Sweet Peas now for fragrant, frilly flowers throughout the spring and early summer. Sweet peas grow into a 6-8 foot long vine, so need a fence or trellis to grow on. Plant them in a sunny location and cut the blooms often for lovely, aromatic bouquets and weeks of colorful flowers in the garden.
Just in - a shipment of gorgeous conifers from the Pacific Northwest. These evergreens add structure and color for the bones of a garden. They are graceful and interesting to look at. Some are perfect for shade gardens while other types prefer more sun. Hardy and long-lived. Choose from Cedars, False Cypress, Junipers, Pines and Arborvitae varieties.
