Latin Name: Hydrangea Paniculata

Description: This is a rounded, deciduous tree with ovate to obovate, deep purple leaves. Bears solitary, pink, bowl-shaped flowers, to 1 inch long, along bare shoots in early spring. Some trees produce small plum-like fruit. This is a highly decorative tree with beautiful foliage. Excellent in Japanese gardens, or just about anywhere you would like an extravagant, showy specimen tree.
Description: Prunus pendula is an ornamental weeping cherry tree that is native to Japan. ‘Pendula Rosea’ is a cultivar that typically grows 15-25′ tall with a pronounced weeping form and light pink to rose-pink flowers. The flowers bloom in 2 to 5-flowered umbels in late winter to early spring before the leaves emerge. Flowers are followed by rounded pea-sized fruits (to 1/3” diameter) that are sometimes sparse. Fruits eventually mature to black, but are basically inedible. Fruits may not appear in some years. Elliptic to ovate, doubly serrate, green leaves (to 4” long) turn red or yellow in fall. Nomenclature on this tree is a bit confusing. Many weeping cherries including the within cultivar may still be incorrectly sold as cultivars of Prunus x subhirtella.
Description: This is a great new addition to the ninebark family. Coppertina ninebark is a new cross between the golden ninebark ‘Darks Gold’ and the purple leafed ninebark Diabolo (‘Monlo’). The result give us a wonderful plant with orange-copper foliage in the spring. As the foliage matures in summer it turns a rich red. As with other ninebark, it blooms in summer, sporting white button-like blooms which contrast wonderfully with the foliage.
Description: The Sweetgum is a large tree, growing up to 100 feet tall. It has a straight trunk, up to three feet wide. Sweetgums are aromatic, meaning they have a pleasant smell. You can crush a leaf to get a good sense of this. Sweetgum fruits, called “gumballs” by children, are often dropped in huge quantities. Up to 50 seeds can be in one fruit.
Description: The tulip tree has long been acknowledged in Indiana history. A valuable timber and shade tree, it’s fast growing and the tallest of the eastern hardwoods. A lightweight wood, it was used to craft canoes by Native Americans and to build shelter and other structures by early settlers.

Description: Ginkgo biloba is a long-lived, dioecious and deciduous tree up to more than 30 meters high and 10 meters in girth . It bears flabellate leaves with a long petiole and dichotomously branching veins, which grow either in tuft at the terminal end of dwarf shoots or are attached sparsely to the newly-sprung long shoot. It has a long fossil record and is well known as having the preeminent claim to be described as a living fossil (Seward, 1911, 1919).
Description: The red oak is one of the largest and most important timber trees. One of the fastest growing of the oaks, it attains a to 80 feet and a diameter of two to three feet. It has a wide, spreading head with few far reaching branches. Found growing over southeastern Canada and the northeastern United States, it reaches west to central Minnesota, eastern Nebraska and Kansas. It is found over most of Iowa on a variety of soils, except on the drier clay uplands. It prefers moist, rich soils on north, east or northeast exposures.
Description: English Oak is one of the most common park trees in south-eastern Australia, noted for its vigorous, luxuriant growth. In Australia, it grows very quickly to a tree of 20m tall by up to 20m broad, with a low-branching canopy. Its trunk and secondary branches are very thick and solid and covered with deep-fissured blackish-grey bark.
Description: Pin oak (Quercus palustris), also called swamp oak, water oak, and swamp Spanish oak, is a fast-growing, moderately large tree found on bottom lands or moist uplands, often on poorly drained clay soils. Best development is in the Ohio Valley. The wood is hard and heavy and is used in general construction and for firewood. Pin oak transplants well and is tolerant of the many stresses of the urban environment, so has become a favored tree for streets and landscapes.
Description: The Kwanzan cherry tree is one of the showiest of all Japanese trees. The blooms of Kwanzan cherry trees are large pink doubles. The blooming period of this wonderful tree is longer than that of most other flowering cherry trees. This tree has unusual flowers due to their large size in comparison to other flowering cherry trees.
Description: The very name Birch, in its identity with “bark,” “barque,” or “barge,” suggests the time when its silver rind formed the canoes of our early British ancestors, such as have been found buried in the gravels of the banks of the Clyde. This etymology does not seem, however, to have suggested itself to Turner, since in his “Names of Herbes” (1548) he simply says:–” Betula–or, as some wryte it, betulla–is called in greeke, Semida; in englishe, a birch tree, or a birke tree; in duche, ein birck baum; in frenche, bouleau or beula. It groweth in woddes and forestes.”
Description: hawthorn or thornapple, is a large genus of shrubs and trees in the rose family, Rosaceae, native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere in Europe, Asia and North America. The name hawthorn was originally applied to the species native to northern Europe, especially the Common Hawthorn C. monogyna, and the unmodified name is often so used in Britain and Ireland. Hawthorns provide food and shelter for many species of birds and mammals, and the flowers are important for many nectar-feeding insects.
Description: Chinese Elm is one of the best street tree selections for south-eastern Australia because of its eventual size, tolerance of urban sites and rapid growth. Some trees have exceptional bark that is a mottled orange-brown peeling in small patches. U. parvifolia is semi-deciduous and will lose its foliage in colder areas of Victoria such as Ballarat.
