We are plant people and take pleasure in sharing our knowledge with you to ensure
you will get the most enjoyment from your plants and landscapes.
Office hours: Mon. - Sat., 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
We are a family owned and operated establishment and take pride in growing quality nursery stock since 1980.
With multiple root pruning, minimal basket sizing and close attention to the root flare area, we feel you are obtaining the best tree stock in the area. All these steps lessen the shock of transplanting and help the tree to quickly establish in your yard.
We would like to invite you to come by and let us show you the difference in our trees and shrubs.

The magnificent deciduous Weeping Baldcypress
Louisa is a weeping, pink-flowered crabapple tree that typically matures to 12-15 feet tall and as wide. Red buds open in spring to single fragrant pink flowers which are attractive to bees. Flowers are followed by small lopsided crabapples that mature in fall to yellow with a rose blush. Crabapples typically persist well into winter and birds are attracted to the fruit.

Standing by your tree watering with a hose for 5 minutes is
not enough water for your tree. Lawn sprinklering is not enough water
for your tree. It needs 5 gallons (1 inch) of water each watering.

Edible! I have tried the haws, they're not bad. I can see why the birds love them. Peeling bark is interesting. Spring flowers are also very beautiful! ~ Karen
