A revolutionary breakthrough in bittersweet culture. Imagine never having to wonder if you're buying or selling a male or female plant again. The majority of the flowers formed on Autumn Revolution™ are perfect, meaning that the flower itself has both male and female parts. In other words, you only need one plant to bear fruit. Perhaps because of this unique characteristic the fruit production is absolutely extraordinary and the berry size is twice that of the species. Should most definitely be considered for commercial production. Florists we've shown this to were awestruck. Truly an extraordinary improvement for this beloved native vine.
Dark red buds open to orange-red trumpet-like flowers which deepen in color as they mature to an incredibly bold red. Tubular flowers are larger than the species measuring 3-4 inches long. A vigorous vine, it will climb on stone or woodwork. An outstanding vertical accent to add color to a sunny fence or wall.
Self-pollinating, sweet, early bearing plant. Without a male, the fruit is seedless; with a male the plant will produce larger and more fruit. Less susceptible to spring frost damage than regular arctic kiwi. Best with limited space in colder climates. Full sun to part shade.
An old favorite now available in a tree form. Makes a great vertical accent with three-season appeal. Creamy white flat-topped flowers in spring are followed by clusters of red berries maturing to black in fall. Disease resistant, glossy green foliage changes to purple-bronze in fall. Developed by the University of Minnesota.
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.
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.
Excellent in both wet and upland soils, this tree has a coarser, less deeply incised leaf than Q. alba, and acorns borne on 2- 4" stalks. It shows good transplant success. Named a 1999 GreatPlants® for the Great Plains Award winner.
This native tree is well adapted to sandy, acid soils, but will tolerate heavier soils and more alkaline conditions than pin oak. It is great for use as a specimen tree in lawn or boulevard plantings. The red fall color can be spectacular.
An outstanding example of our national tree, the White Oak is strong, disease resistant, and drought tolerant. The foliage is deep green above and white underneath. 2000 Gold Medal Plant® Award winner.
A small, suckering tree or large shrub with an oval to rounded crown, ideal for naturalizing. Racemes of white blooms flower in May and are followed by dark purple fruit. Provides food and habitat for wildlife.
This improved Canada Red cherry was selected by Bailey Nurseries for its vigorous growth, straight trunk and uniform top. Foliage is a darker red, with a thicker leaf texture than regular Canada Red. Proper soil conditions are necessary for normal growth with this variety. Pay special attention to insure good drainage and aeration.
The foliage is the star on this very hardy tree. It emerges green, then turns red as leaves mature, and finally turns red to reddish-purple in fall. Proper soil conditions are necessary for normal growth with this variety. Pay special attention to insure good drainage and aeration.
This tree blooms in the first part of May, with fragrant white flowers in slender drooping clusters. One of the first trees to leaf out in spring, it has dark green foliage that turns yellow to red as autumn arrives.
This cultivar from Clayton Berg of Helena, MT, is an excellent addition for colder areas of the Plains States. It has unusual reddish leaves that almost appear black. Spring brings pure white flower clusters which produce 1/4" dark red fruit later in the season. Despite the name Redleaf, this prunus leafs out green before taking on the red color it's known for.
Day one completed! Zehr’s Flowers and Landscaping are doing a wonderful job! I have been saving for this project for a long time and they are bringing my vision into reality! My dream patio, part of phase 1: Zehr’s Flowers and Landscaping outdid themselves!

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!
Zehr’s has a wonderful, reasonably priced assortment of garden plants and the staff is friendly and helpful. I’m already planning on going back next spring.
