Description: Callery pear is a medium-sized deciduous tree, it grows to a height of 35-40 feet with upright branches and a very dense, symmetrical crown. Callery pear trees have scaly gray-brown bark and branches with numerous short lateral twigs. Twigs ending in thorns are typical of the species, but the Bradford cultivar is thornless.
Description: The Katsura tree is a bit unusual in the sense that its root system is shallow. You may find that its roots can be seen on the surface of the soil instead of going deep into the earth. The trunk often flares out from its base which causes the roots to appear on the surface which can be quite pleasing to the eye.
Description: The American Hornbeam is thickly decorated with yellow and orange flowers. The dense canopy is a generous giver of welcome shade and relief from the hot sun. American Hornbeam trees along the street or sidewalk and watch them reach for the sky. Their extremely strong wood makes them an excellent landscape tree in areas that are prone to high winds and winter ice storms.
Description: The tree will grow in zones 5 and 6. A cold-hardy seed source is a primary concern for zones 5 and 6. Ohio tests have shown that some seed sources of Japanese Scholar tree not reliably hardy in the colder areas of the state. Sensitivity to Nectria canker is a manifestation of lack of cold tolerance. The proper seed sources should reduce this problem dramatically. Cultivars such as “Regent” have shown to be cold sensitive and should not be used in cooler zones.
Description: Kinshi: “Golden Bird” Double golden yellow Huge, ruffled satin like flowers, super hardy! Rare colorful Imperial Tree Peonies from Japan The finest quality available! Every garden needs a tree peony. There are very few plants that can compete with a tree peony in full bloom. They flower from May to June, but the flowering season does vary from year to year. A mature plant can have in excess of a hundred flowers, and these can be 10″ or more across! The flowers range in color from maroon, crimson, scarlet and various shades of pink to pure white. There are also tree peonies with yellow or purple flowers.
Description: Royal Purple Smokebush, cotinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’, exhibits beautiful, velvety, dark purple foliage throughout the growing season, with panicles of smoky-purple to beige flowers blooming in mid-summer. This gives the effect of a cloud of smoke. This xeriscape plant forms an upright, low branched, spreading shrub. It is a tough and tolerant shrub, requiring well-drained soil; and Royal Purple Smokebush thrives in part to full sun; the leaves are greener in shade, burgundy in full sun. It tolerates considerable drought once it is established. With minimal pruning it will naturally form a large shrub or small tree over time. If pruned to 6 to 8 inches tall in winter, it will produce long stems with striking, oversized foliage. It makes a wonderful accent as a shrub border, can be planted as a specimen, or as a patio tree.
Description: Peony Hoki, Paeonia suffruticosa ‘Hoki’, demands attention in the garden with bright lipstick red, semi-double blooms in late spring. Bright yellow stamens nicely accent the colorful flowers of ‘Hoki’. Tree Peonies differ from garden peonies in that they have a woody stem like a shrub. The woody branches do not die back to the ground in the winter and should not be trimmed back. Deer resistant foliage. There are very few plants that can compete with a tree peony in full bloom. A mature plant can have in excess of a hundred flowers and these can be 10″ or more across! Japanese tree peonies tend to have less double flowers than their Chinese peers, and the flowers are more open and delicate. Growing only 4-5′ tall, these exceptional tree peonies are sub-zero hardy and bloom for a lifetime.
Description: A version of this popular selection grafted onto a single trunk; valued for its spires of mixed sterile and fertile white flowers in mid to late summer which quickly fade to a deep pink, makes a wonderful garden accent. Pink Diamond Hydrangea (tree form) features bold conical pink flowers with rose overtones at the ends of the branches from mid summer to late fall. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has green foliage throughout the season. The pointy leaves do not develop any appreciable fall colour. The smooth gray bark is not particularly outstanding.
Description: Golden-chain tree is a stunning, small tree noted for its long, pendulous clusters of flowers. A member of the pea family, Laburnum x Watereri is a hybrid cross between the common and Scotch laburnum. Golden-chain tree is native to Europe and widely planted there. All plant parts contain cytisine, an alkaloid that is toxic to children, adults, and livestock if eaten.
Description: Kousa Dogwood is somewhat sensitive to being transplanted in Autumn, and care should be taken to amend the soil, fertilize, water thoroughly, mulch adequately, and avoid Winter salt spray, to enhance survival chances during the first Winter (this advisory is less critical for those shrubs transplanted from containers, rather than root-pruned ball and burlap specimens) globular green fruits turn to pink, then dull red in September, resembling large solitary upright raspberries on a 2″ peduncle (fruiting stalk)
Description: Broad-rounded habit. Branches often layered or sweeping toward the ground in weeping cultivars. Narrowly lobed leaves are often dissected creating a lacy appearance. New growth and fall color is crimson red. Handsome cascading branches.
