Quercus x Kindred Spirit Oak
A very handsome and hardy columnar oak that displays the gorgeous leaves of an Oak tree in a smaller vertical narrow form to fit into narrow places. It is a great tree that is hard-to-find and needs to be appreciated up close. The Kindred Spirit is cold hardy and relatively drought tolerant, and is just a fascinating tree for next to a walkway, driveway, or just close by to be appreciated up close by tree aficionados.
They hold onto their leaves late into the fall offering privacy and beauty. The leaves in the spring and the summer are dark green with a beautiful silver underside which is displayed on a windy day. One gets to see what is usually at the top of large Oak trees right up close and personal. Highly recommended!

Amelanchier grandiflora, ‘Autumn Brilliance’
A great native specimen producing white spring flowers and awesome fall colors for its multi-season display. These grow to 15′ – 20′ and are taller than wide. We grow single trunk specimens, but do have some multi-trunk as well. The Amelanchier looks great as a solo tree, or as part of a multi-specimen design. These are a truly nice tree/ shrub and are fascination to see up close throughout the seasons.
Autumn Brilliance puts on one of the best fall color displays of all of the serviceberry trees. It is a beautiful native flowering tree, and the birds love the berries.

Prunus, ‘Helen Taft’
The Helen Taft Cherry tree is a fantastic flowering cherry tree variety named after a female trailblazer in the early 1900’s who also happened to be the wife of President Howard Taft. She was one of the key people who helped create the Cherry Blossom arboretum along the Potomac river bordering Washington DC and Virginia. This specimen is a outstanding flowering tree specimen, and would look great in a grouping, or in a tree line!
It is a deciduous upright tree with a spreading crown, reaching both a height and width of 18′ x 20’+ after 25 years of growth. We find that this tree is very hardy with minimal problems with insects and disease. It is most comparable to its female parent, Prunus x yedoensis Yoshino, except for its slightly larger size and noticeably large pink flowers.
This tree is a winner, and we are quite impressed with its many positive characteristics. Highly recommended.
