This is a brand new Cherry tree introduction this year, and we are very excited about it! We have been growing this new cherry specimen for 3 years now and are very impressed with its strong new vigorous growth, and improved resistance to insects and disease. We are one of a very few growers in the United States growing this very special tree variety. It is a deciduous upright tree with a spreading crown, reaching both a height and width of 25 - 30 feet after 30 years of growth. We find that it is very hardy, and has minimal problems with either insects and disease.

This is one of our favorite magnolias. It is a hard-to-find semi-evergreen retaining more than 50% of its leaves through the winter, and develops many flowering buds blooming June through August. It is a faster growing variety of Sweetbay Magnolia, and produces the same beautiful lemon scented flowers. This wonderful tree can be used as an all-season privacy tree to help block an undesirable view. This is the tree that everyone wants to see out their window full of lush green leaves...in summer and mid-winter. It is highly recommended!
Akebono is a beautiful and hard-to-find flowering cherry tree with flowers that rival the outstanding beauty of the Yoshino cherry tree. It has commanded our respect for its beauty, and you also get the seasonal benefit of it flowering just before the Yoshino cherry tree.
Eastern Redbud is an exceptional and beautiful early flowering tree that is highly revered for its beautiful flowers.
