Berry Poppins

Finally we have the Berry Poppins winterberry for sale at our nursery. We have tried for several years to get this shrub but it was never available so we are pretty thrilled that we now have it in stock. If you like winterberries, or a shrub with red berries in winter, this might just be the one for you! It has a height and spread of 3-4′ and you can use Jim Dandy (the male) as the pollinator.

Annuals Galore

We have no doubt that Trees Today Nursery has the largest assortment of annuals in the area.  We have over 100 varieties and they have been selling like crazy.   Some of our favorites for pollinators are the cuphea (vermillionaire in particular) for the hummingbirds and the Tithonias (Mexican Sunflowers) for the Monarchs.   For unusual container plants, the Laurentia and Mercadonia are great.  They are  tiny little flowers, one blue and one yellow, that will fill your containers in no time and bloom and bloom.   Also, of course, we have all the old favorites like geraniums, zinnias, marigolds, lantanas, lisisanthus, and the list goes on.    Stop in while the selecti0n is still great.
