A beautiful variegated Japanese tree lilac from Bakker Nursery in Ontario. In spring the new foliage emerges green with a dark center. The edge of the leaf gradually turns to bright gold, and the dark green shadow in the center of the leaf gives the illusion of an eclipse. 'Golden Eclipse' blooms with creamy white flowers in late spring/early summer. (CPBR #1505, C®)
Selected by Rod Bailey because of its exceptionally heavy bloom. Although the species tend to flower biannually, Snowdance™ flowers well annually and begins flowering at an earlier age than the species. Large, fragrant panicles of creamy white bloom in June. This sterile variety produces no untidy, brown seedheads. Lustrous, dark green foliage is slightly larger and darker than the species. As wide as tall with attractive, shelved branching. A pest and disease free lilac tree for residential and park use. Equally attractive as a specimen as it is in group plantings.
Originally selected at the Beijing Botanic Garden by the same individual whose cultivar name it bears, this new tree lilac variety sports primrose yellow bloom trusses and shiny cinnamon colored bark. The blooms also have a wonderful fragrance, which is an added bonus.
Medium-sized flowering tree has multi season interest because of its ornamental, amber-colored, exfoliating bark. In mid-June large, creamy-white, fragrant flowers appear. Shown to be drought and salt tolerant once established. Needs a well-drained soil in full sun or part shade. Useful in residential and commercial plantings.
Blooming in mid summer, Japanese stewartia has showy white camellia-like flowers that mature into brown seed pods. Dark green leaves will turn brilliant hues of yellow, red to dark purple in autumn. The bark is beautiful, with exfoliating strips in varied hues.
Tinkerbelle® was the first introduction in Bailey's Fairytale® Series of Lilacs. Developed by Neal Holland of Sheyenne Gardens, this dwarf results from crosses between Syringa meyeri 'Palibin' and Syringa microphylla 'Superba'. Tinkerbelle® forms a superb small tree with a pleasing spicy fragrance and incredible wine-red flower buds that open in late spring. (CPBR #1204, C®)
Traditionally not an easy to transplant tree due to its deep taproot, we are now growing this native tree in small containers for better transplanting success. Fast growing, forming an upright oval shape, the green, mitten-shaped foliage has outstanding autumn colors in shades from yellow to deep orange, scarlet and even purple.
This hardy tree has small white flowers in spring that produce abundant clusters of scarlet berries in the fall. The smooth, dark brown bark is almost beech-like. Great all around tree, should be better known.
Grafted onto a standard, this will add height and architectural interest to any border. Very compact and refined, easily shaped by pruning, the design potential of this willow is endless. Delicate, slender branches sway beautifully in a breeze.
This fast growing, golden barked willow has a wide spreading canopy and long, golden drooping branches. An extremely graceful tree, it prefers moist planting sites. To prevent dehydration and start buds to break on potted Niobe willow, the potted plants should be held in a greenhouse or a sheltered location until growth has started.
A strongly weeping form of pussy willow on a standard, this tree is perfect for use as an accent or specimen plant for confined areas. Its large, silky soft catkins appear in early spring for a pretty effect.
A small tree with interesting, twisted branches. Beautiful hanging white blossoms in spring. Suitable as a specimen plant and quite attractive as a patio plant in a large decorative container. Adds a great deal of winter interest to a border. Prune to encourage contorted growth. Full sun to light shade.
From Heritage Trees, Inc., this cross between Q. robur (English oak) and Q. macrocarpa (bur oak) has glossy, dark green, tatter and mildew resistant foliage. A beautiful specimen tree for the front lawn, this is a truly vigorous cultivar.
From Heritage Trees, Inc., this vigorous oak resulted from a cross of Q. robur fastigiata (upright English oak) and Q. bicolor (swamp white oak) and has a distinctive upright oval habit. Beautiful all season long, the foliage has an attractive silvery lower surface. It is tolerant of a wide range of soils types, wet and dry.
The fastest growing oak and one of the easiest to transplant, this tree is great for street use or as a landscape tree. The foliage is dense and lustrous and leaves hang on the tree into winter. Named the 1999 Iowa Tree of the Year.
