This is the time of the year when ornamental grasses look great with their plumes either present now or coming shortly. Fluffy Pennisetum, erect Calamagrostis, and wispy Miscanthus add to fall interest of any garden. We have other varieties also that range from the short ‘Little Bunny’ to the tall Erianthus ravennae. We even have the native Sporobolus heterolepis. Review the availability to see what other great grasses we have available now.
In keeping with our plan to grow “Unique and Specialty” plant material, we also grow some unique ground cover. We are now growing Cornus canadensis which is a 3” tall dogwood also known as Bunchberry or Creeping Dogwood. Gaultheria procumbens, known as Checkerberry or Wintergreen, a scented evergreen and Arctostaphylos u u Mass, also known as Bearberry are other great groundcovers. Call your salesman for more information about these three great, but hard to find plants.
In the last several weeks we have had some low 50 degree temperatures at night in North East Ohio. With that comes sizing of material, which we have started. Most of the evergreens are in the availability now and we will be starting the deciduous material very soon. This means the material is just about finished growing, making it a great time to schedule a tour of the nursery. We would love the opportunity to show you our Unique and Specimen Nursery Stock to you!
We will be closed on Friday to celebrate the freedoms we enjoy in this country with our families and friends. We hope you have the opportunity to do so, too. All of us at Losely Nursery thank each of you who have served in the military to keep our freedoms.
We began expanding our container area in the fall across the street from the main office. We have included more Branded material to have the plants that your customers are reading about in the horticulture and home improvement publications. We will also be potting more of our field grown shrubs that were grown for containers such as Hydrangea quercifolia cvs for 5 and 10 gallon cans.
We have increased planting of trees for the last few years and we will have considerably more 2” material available to meet customer demand in fall 2015 and spring 2016. This includes more cultivars of flowering and shade trees.
