After losing its cloak of orange, yellow, and red fall color the honey sweet, dark orange and black, 1-1/2" wide fruits of the American Persimmon become readily visible. The fully ripe fruit of this easy to grow native tree will not be likely to win a beauty contest with dark red orange skin speckled with black but on your palette it is like eating persimmon candy. Provide the American Persimmon with good drainage and give it plenty of room to grow. Our plants are seedlings and you will need a male and female for pollination. Item# 10930

The large rounded, thick, tough, blue-green to deep olive green, evergreen foliage is long-lived and as the name suggests you can sign your name on a young leaf and watch it grow as the leaf expands. The Autograph Tree, Clusia rosea, is an upright growing tropical to subtropical tree from the Caribbean and southern Florida that produces white to pink, 2-3 inch wide, waxy flowers that open at night and may last into morning on overcast days and are followed by 2-3" diameter green fruits that eventually fall and split open to reveal bright red-orange seeds that attract birds. Although this is a tropical tree it can easily be maintained as container shrub with pruning. Provide full sun to part sun in a well-drained, average moist soil. Its night opening flowering suggest moth pollination making this a good addition to the moon moth garden. Drought resistant and a forgiving and easy container specimen. Item# 12609

Available again for 2024! Drooping spike-like clusters composed of numerous, lightly fragrant, small white flowers are produced in spring and are followed by small, 1/4-1/3" diameter red cherries that ripen to black and are consumed by a wide variety of birds and small mammals. The Black Cherry Tree, Prunus serotina, is a moderately fast growing, medium to large, deciduous native tree found throughout much of the eastern, central, and southwestern US as well as into Canada, Mexico, and into Central America. Its medium green serrated foliage is a caterpillar host for the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and Viceroy butterflies as well as a variety of moths. The Black Cherry fairly consistently produces good yellow to red fall color even here in zone 8B in southwestern Louisiana and the white and gray winter bark adds to its interest. Provide a full to mostly sunny site in well-drained, average moist, fertile soils for optimum growth and vigor. Item# 10469

Blue Ice Arizona Cypress

Cupressus arizonica var. glabra 'Blue Ice', Hesperocyparis arizonica 'Blue Ice'  

The icy blue-gray foliage of this evergreen provides a pleasing contrast to the typical greens of gardens and landscapes and is a standout when planted near maroon or burgundy foliaged neighbors. The Blue Ice Arizona Cypress, a selection of Cupressus arizonica var. glabra, is a southwestern US native that develops into a medium to large, evergreen tree with a conic upright habit when young and a moderate rate of growth and then broadens with age, when the gorwth rate slows, ultimately reaching about 40-50' high and 20-30' wide. It is best suited to soils with excellent drainage in full sun sites and has good drought resistance once fully established. The Arizona Cypress is not always long-lived in the southeastern US where it is commonly grown as Christmas trees. Use this colorful evergreen as a specimen or accent or as a large informal hedge or screen. Plants can be maintained at a smaller size with judicious pruning. Item# 9814

Grows To: 15-30'H x 10-15'W is typical, potentially to 40-50'W x 25-30'W

Huge 18-24" long spikes of deep coral-red to red-orange, 2" long pea-like flowers are produced in cycles throughout the warmer months of the year on new growth. The specialized flowers are designed for hummingbird pollination but may also be visited by larger bees and occasional butterflies. The Crybaby or Cockspur Coral Tree, Erythrina crista-galli, is considered to be one of the most cold hardy and free flowering of the Coral Trees. This is a rarely available and highly desirable fast-growing, heat and sunloving, deciduous tropical tropical tree to large shrub growing to about 15-20' high in zones 9B-10 but is typically closer to 10' high in zones 8B-9A. Once well-established, the plants are somewhat drought resistant and are slightly salt tolerant. Provide a full sun to mostly sunny site in an average moist to moist , fertile soil for optimum vigor and flowering. Protect young plants from harsh freezing temperatures until the trunk becomes woody and has grown to about 5-6" diameter if planting out in zone 8B-9A. Young plants can be overwintered indoors in a warm sunny window until they get to an appropriate size for planting out. The huge flower clusters are utilized as cutflowers in its native range and it is also the national tree of Argentina, the national flower of both Uruguay and Argentina, and is the city tree of Los Angeles as it makes a fantastic, low-maintenance street tree.

Elegantly arching, 4-8" long spikes of 1" wide, bell-shaped, fragrant white flowers with contrasting yellow anthers are produced in spring to early summer with the warmest regions flowering earliest. The Fragrant Snowbell, Styrax obassia or S. obassis, is a highly desirable, showy small tree that is initially pyramidal in form but broadens and becomes rounded with age. The large papery, rounded to oval to near heart-shaped foliage can reach 8" long and the beautiful foliage alone makes this plant worth growing. From the moist forests of Japan and Korea, the Fragrant Snowbell will benefit from protection from strong drying winds as well as a moist to average moist, loamy, well-drained acidic soil that is rich in organic matter and an organic mulch over the root zone. Full sun to part shade tolerant but it may benefit from afternoon shade in hot summer climates. Item# 12607

Ghost Dogwood, Wilson's Dogwood, Guang Pi Lai Mu

Cornus wilsoniana, C. fordii  

Clusters of Viburnum-like creamy white flowers to 4" across are produced in spring and are followed by black fruit but one of the most attractive features of this unusual Dogwood is its peeling white, gray, to green bark and its neatly rounded crown. The Ghost Dogwood or Wilson's Dogwood, Cornus wilsoniniana, was discovered and introduced to western horticulture by the famed plantsman E.H. Wilson, but is unfortunately still rare in the US. The light green evergreen to deciduous foliage is glossy on its surface and has a whitish reverse and is reminiscent of the Kousa Dogwood. The fall foliage of the Ghost Dogwood can range from yellow into reds where it receives at least half of a day of direct sunlight even here in the southern US. It gets its common name from its white bark and the specific epithet is in honor of E.H. Wilson. It is considered to be a choice, single to multi-trunked, small to medium-sized street tree growing to 15-50'H, occasionally exceeding 100'H, and prefers a well-drained, average moist acidic soil. The Ghost Dogwood is tolerant of full sun to part shade and has excellent resistance to Dogwood anthracnose and powdery mildew. Caterpillar host: Holly Blue. Item# 12244

Large clusters of brilliant golden yellow 3" long trumpet shaped flowers are produced most heavily in early to midspring and may be produced sporadically during the growing season.

This is a good choice as a street tree, small lawn tree, or for lightly shading a pool or patio. Pollinated flowers produce long, curving brown fuzzy seed pods. The Tabebuia prefers a well-drained, moderately fertile, average moist soil in a full to mostly sunny site for optimum vigor and flowering. Item# 9678

Dr. Dave Creech of SFA Gardens, Nacogdoches, Texas in cooperation with Dr. Yin Yunlong and the Taxodium Breeding and Improvement Program at Nanjing Botanical Gardens in China have developed and selected this highly improved kneeless Cypress that was bred from controlled crosses of the Montezuma Cypress, Taxodium distichum var. mexicana, and the Bald Cypress, Taxodium distichum var. distichum. LaNana Cypress, a.k.a 'T406', has proven to be the most popular of the resultant clones and has been trialed across much of the southern US.
