Some New Plants in our Inventory, Walberton’s Spirea

Happy Spring!  Finally spring has arrived.  However it will still be weeks before you should begin to uncover your plants or work in your garden.  In the meantime we will highlight a few plants that are new to our inventory this year or perhaps we added them last year.  Hopefully one or two of these plants may be of interest to you and work in that spot where you need something alive and growing.

This week we have chosen Walberton’s® Plumtastic spirea.  This compact plant is perfect for low borders or edging pathways. Plant it as a single species or in masses.   It works well planted in a small, skinny area that you may have between your sidewalk and house.   Plumtastic only gets around 16″ high and wide.   Outside of being small, it has flushes of pink-cerise blooms that flower continuosly from summer into fall.  The foliage opens to a rich purple and ages to green.  It likes full sun.  Like most spireas it is very easy to grow.  Butterflies and bees love it.  Google this plant and you will see some gorgeous pictures.  We predict this plant to be a hot seller.

The Place to Shop

This week (June 1st) we unloaded two semi’s full of perennials, shrubs, roses, and etc.   So if you are looking to update your yard or replace those tired, old looking shrubs, stop in and shop at Trees Today Nursery.   The products we just received are high quality and beautiful. We must have over 200 coneflowers in stock.  Our Blue Marvel Salvias are an intense blue and blooming along with the yellow tickseed. What a striking combination the blue and yellow will make. The peach drift/carpet roses that arrived are to die-for.  We carry so much more then the normal run-of-the mill plants.  Our variety of shrubs and perennials is huge.

Crabapples Abloom

Now is the time of year when the crabapple trees are taking center stage. This year is a beautiful year for them as most of them are truly full of blossoms. Purchasing a crab apple tree now means you get to choose the color of blossoms as you will see most of them blooming at our garden center. There are many various shades of white to a dark pink, possibly close to red.  Following are a few of our crabapple trees blooming.
