It’s Perennial Season

Our perennials are starting to color up and show off. Roses are budded up and starting to pop. Nepeta and Salvia are in full color. Oenothera, Leucanthemum and Coreopsis are budded heavy and will be blooming soon. Hosta have reached size to have impact for the variety. Grasses are looking very nice too. Your sales rep can provide you with all of the information you need to land the right plants for your needs.


Great Looking Container Taxus!

We are growing Taxus Densiformis, Hicksi, Tauntonii, and Everlow in #3, #5, and #7 cans. They hold up great on a sales lot and establish well in the landscape. 

Your sales rep can give you more information on how big the plants are. 

Hosta and the rest of the perennials are finishing nicely and are ready to move to a high visibility spot in your yard so you can pick up those impulse sales.


Available B&B on the dock

Every year at this time there are great looking B&B plants that are left on the dock.  To make it easy, there is a separate tab at the bottom of the excel page to look at just the B&B Above Ground List.  Take time to look at the container list.  They have their own tab at the bottom also.  There has been a lot of different varieties added this past week.


Plenty of Beautiful Containers Available

Evergreen buds are tight and we still have a wide selection on our availability. We also have a great selection of container plants that are outstanding. Perennials are jumping up and the shrubs are growing strong. Your sales representative can help you find what fits your needs and let you know what will be ready soon.


Loading Trucks

We are busy loading trucks. Our great crew loaded 13 semi-trailers today as well as all the ‘Will-Call’ customers who stopped in. Please help us help you and call before you come to be sure your material is in the yard and ready for pick up. Please understand you may have to wait if there are trucks in front of you in line.


Hydrangea & Viburnum for Every Landscape

Viburnum dil. Cardinal Candy™ is hardier than the species, has abundant white flowers followed by persistent scarlet red shiny fruit.  Viburnum n. Brandywine™ has glossy green leaves that turns dark maroon in the fall.  The spectacular fruit transforms from green to ivory to vivid pinks and blue. 

Hydrangea pan. ‘Limelight’ is popular because of its phenomenal flower display.  It can be used as a stand-alone plant and makes a spectacular flowering hedge.

Hydrangea pan. Quick Fire® is known for its early flower display blooming two weeks before any other paniculata.  It turns pink before Pink Diamond starts to bloom.  Hydrangea pan. Pinky Winky® has two tone flower heads in mid-summer.  The flowers emerge white and turn pink while continuing to push white florets from the tip of the panicle.


Flower, Fruit & Color

We have great looking Blue Holly #3 & #10 at a very good size making them an excellent value.

Syringa m. Palibin #5, #7, and #10, and Aronia melanocarpa #5 and #7 are budded heavy, very full and ready to bloom.

Vaccinium are full of flower buds and will soon be full of fruit making them a sure quick sell. And we have great looking evergreen containers that have lost the winter color and look like spring!


Flower Buds and Blooms

Azalea m. Cornell Pink is a deciduous azalea with very clear pink blooms.  They are spectacular in the sun and are still vibrant even on cloudy days.  Our container Rhododendron look great and are budded and ready to bloom.

We dig some of our Rhododendron in the fall and put them into poly-houses to keep them from getting windburn.  The buds are all plump and viable meaning they will put on a beautiful show where ever they land.

Pieris is an old school plant that has some very nice cultivars.  Katsura has rose pink flowers. When the flowers are gone the wine red new growth continues to show off this compact plant.  Cavatine’s white flowers are very abundant on a dwarf plant that only reaches 2’ -3’.


Versatile Elms

Valley Forge, Jefferson and Princeton American Elms can be used on homeowner, municipal and commercial sites.  They are highly resistant to Dutch Elm Disease and adaptable to many soil types while tolerating different soil moisture levels.

Frontier and Emerald Sunshine Elms have rich glossy green leaves.  Frontier is unique because it is the only elm with a rich burgundy fall color.
Both are resistant to Dutch Elm Disease, are heat and drought tolerant. These are tough, adaptable shade trees.
