We are getting ready for Winter, but we still have plenty of container plants looking great and some are in bloom. The doors aren’t on yet and every house is easy to get in. With the upcoming warm week, there is still time to get that last couple of projects done. You have the time and we have the plants.
We grow our evergreen trees in liner rows before we dig a ball on them for transplanting. This trims all of the roots and forms a heavily fibered root system on the tree. The high quality root mass ensures our customers of fantastic success with our spruce, pine and fir.
Unique and Specimen trees are one of the things that set us apart from other nurseries. We can mix these in with your B&B and container shrubs, smaller B&B trees and one gallon material. Our loading crews are masters at blending mixed size loads together. Stop in for a tour and see what we grow that you may not find anywhere else.
We have a great selection of evergreens that will fit most every design need whether it is weeping, columnar, low and round, for a screen or a specimen piece. Check the availability and you will find them ranging in size from 3′ Picea pungens Globosa to 19′ Pinus strobus Columnaris.
We grow 16 varieties of taxus, so we are sure to have one to fit your needs. From cold hardy cuspidata, to tall and thin Adam’s perfect for hedges, to Densiformis, Wardii and Brownii for mass and foundation plantings. They are machine dug in a basket for an optimum package, yet no larger or heavier than a hand dug ball.
This is the time of the year when most plants are losing their visual impact. Grasses are coming into their own now adding interest and texture to a landscape. We have a great selection ranging in size from the compact Pennisetum a. ‘Little Bunny’ to the tall Erianthus ravennae.
We strive to grow plants that are of a superior quality that shine in any landscape. In an effort to ensure our high quality plants have solid root balls that hold up to handling and shipping, we put a machine ball and wire basket on many plants that are traditionally hand dug. Some examples are in the photos below. We believe you will agree that the extra effort and cost we put into the package pays off with your customer’s satisfaction.

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.
