Betula n. ‘Heritage’ makes a great ornamental shade tree as well as an allée along a driveway with its year-round interest. Pinus bungeana has a beautifully exfoliating bark also. It makes an attractive focal tree or screen plants if planted in groups.
Cercis canadensis is a familiar plant to most people. The bright early spring flowers signify the coming of warmer weather. Magnolia virginiana’s fragrant June flowers contrast elegantly with its rich green leaves. Both make a great specimen flowering tree in a formal location or fit in nicely when blending maintained and natural areas.

sizes. Each of the steps insure that you
won’t have trouble transplanting them.
We want you to be successful every time you hold or plant one of our
