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.
If you found this past winter that your yard looked kind of blah, then plant this new variety of dogwood. In winter it provides dramatic color with striking bare red stems that will put that needed punch in your dull landscape. It gets about 24 – 30 inches tall and wide with a rounded shape. Foliage grows all the way to the bottom of this plant. It is great for erosion control and tolerates wet soil. Very hardy to Zone 3.
Finally, a Japanese Maple that is a zone 4. This is a dwarf maple that was discovered growing in a yard in Minneapolis by a landscaper. The maple was about 4 ft tall and 8 ft wide. Obviously this tree survived some very harsh winters, even the polar vortex. The Velvet Viking was named for its rich velvety color and after the Minnesota’s Viking football team. Monrovia Nursery received some cuttings and began the long process of bringing this plant to market. (-MPLS Star-Tribune 6/13/20) Presently there is only a limited supply of these trees available to the public. Be the first in your neighborhood to plant this tree. Since they are a dwarf variety, they also make beautiful patio plantings in a pot.
