White flowers in late June. Fruits, blue to black, in large clusters. Excellent for pies, jam and elderberry wine. Hardy native plant. Use in background and wildlife plantings. A clone of S. canadensis selected for its large fruit by William W. Adams of Union Springs, NY. Fruit set is normally improved when more than one cultivar is used, such as 'York'.
A National Arboretum introduction with deep green foliage and dense, compact habit of growth. Abundant, yellow-white inflorescenses in spring followed by brilliant red fruit in fall that advances to black. Tolerant of hot, dry locations.
Dense glossy leafed shrub suitable for hedges in open or shady area. Small greenish flowers in April-May. Responsive to shearing. A Bailey Nurseries selection highly resistant to summer blight. Sun or shade.
'Anne' is a fall bearing, golden raspberry from the University of Maryland. Light yellow fruit is born on the top of sparsely thorned canes. Large, firm symmetrical berries have a mild-sweet flavor with an aromatic banana flavor developing in cooler climates.
Attractive rose-pink flowers in June and July. Also useful as a flowering hedge. Noted for long season of bloom in areas with a cool climate. We are only producing the Sapho strain which has eliminated the creamy variegation often observed in 'Anthony Waterer'.
A compact selection of the ever-popular 'baileyi' red stem dogwood. Dark red winter stems, a non-suckering habit and compact form make this a beautiful addition to any garden. Developed by Mike Farrow of Holly Hill Nursery.
Excellent dwarf selection for smaller gardens. Mass in areas where the yellow stems in winter can be enjoyed. Effective in shrub borders where plants can be combined with evergreens or red twig dogwoods for interesting winter contrast. Small white flowers appear in spring, giving way to whitish, sometimes bluish fruit that is highly attractive to birds. (CPBRAF)
A small, shade tolerant tree, perfect for the wood's edge or under taller shade trees. 'Arnold Promise' is particularly desirable because of its consistent heavy crop of fragrant, yellow flowers in late February to mid-March. Plant in full sun to partial shade in moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soil.
Profuse flower display and brilliant show of fruit each year. Darkest red blossom of any honeysuckle. Fragrant flowers in May followed by large bright red berries through June-July. Easily grown in reasonably well-drained soil. Sun or partial shade. Good for a shrub border. Xeriscape plant.
Fall bearing raspberry. A sister seedling of 'Autumn Bliss' that is not only a better producer it also has much better fruit firmness. Berries are long and conical with a bright red color and a very good flavor. Ships well. Good upright growth and quite vigorous. Ripens 3 weeks before 'Heritage'. (CPBR AF)
A beautiful cultivar from the University of British Columbia. Fragrant white flowers bloom in May followed by clusters of large, edible, dark purple-black berries which persist through the season. The leaves are a dark, glossy green all season long and put on an incredible fall color show of red and purple. Does well in full sun to part shade and is tolerant of most soil types. Aronia berries can be eaten fresh, used for baking, jams, juice and wine.
This native shrub produces edible nuts in clusters of 2 to 4. This large rounded plant is great for naturalizing the landscape. The pest-free dark purple summer foliage develops a burgudy fall color. Sun to partial shade.
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.
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!
