Looking good this week - Lots of fall and winter interest trees, shrubs and perennials!
Persian Ironwood

We have a nice selection Persian Ironwood  (Parrotia persica) in sizes ranging from 3-3.5" to 5-6". They make an awesome 4-season tree that's not at all common to see. It starts off early spring with small pink flower clusters (more noticeable up close, but very interesting), then leafs out with bright green leaves typical of the Witchhazel family. In fall the leaves are a beautiful mix of orange, red and yellow. The tight upright branching is a nice addition to the winter landscape and is prime real estate for nesting birds come spring. Plant in well-drained soil and in full sun for the best fall color.  Zone 5.

Coralbark Maple 10 gallon
These 10 gallon Acer palmatum 'Sango Kaku' (Coralbark Maple) are pretty eye-catching this time of year - an easy size to install, too! Other larger sizes available plus some interesting shrub form.

Container evergreens for seasonal interest
We still have a nice supply of various container evergreens for in the ground color or your entryway seasonal containers. Includes Blue and Variegated Holly, Hinoki Cypress, Blue Spruces, Arborvitae and more!

Holiday wreaths
Pilar is going to town on the holiday wreaths, and swags. They're going quick and a new order of plain wreaths and mixed greens was received in this week. Stop in soon and check out the selection of ready-made decorative pots and DYI bundles!
These Virginia Sweetspire should be on your list for any fall landscape - fragrant summer flowers, sweet fall color and they're a native shrub!

FYI: Even though we've begun to cover the hoop houses, the plant material is accessible for whatever you may need.

Acer palmatum 'Sango Kaku'
Coralbark Maple 
Acer palmatum 'Sango Kaku'  (Japanese Maple) falls into that slim category of vibrant colored bark, and Coral Bark Maple makes the top of the list! Sango is the Okinawan word for "sea coral" and Kaku means "upward rising". During the growing season the branches are reddish, but once the cold weather hits you'll have bright, red branches.

It will grow about 20-25' high. Plant in a semi-protected area away from harsh winter winds.
