This is the year to add a beautiful ornamental specimen to your landscape. There have been some exciting breakthroughs in color and hardiness in Crabapples and Japanese Maples. We’ve picked up a few trees with smaller mature sizes to expand our selection for small urban lots. Stop in and chat with our knowledgeable nurserymen and women to determine which tree is the best fit for your landscape, as well as the companion plants that bring out the best in your selection.

Shade Trees

Kindred Spirit Oak (Quercus robur x bicolor ‘Nadler’ PP 17604)

30′ tall, 6′ wide. A tightly columnar hybrid of Swamp White Oak and English Oak. Sister tree to Regal Prince Oak but even more columnar. Tolerant of dry and urban soils.

June Snow Dogwood (Cornus controversa ‘June Snow-JFS’)

30′ tall, 40′ wide. A layered, spreading tree with large white flowers in the spring and outstanding orange to red fall color. Makes a statement in large areas.

Ornamental Trees

Ivory Spear Crabapple (Malus ‘JFS KW214MX’ P.A.F.)
18′ tall, 7′ wide. Pink buds open to white flowers in the spring, followed by bright red, 1/2 inch berries that persist into fall, when leaves take on a touch of gold. This Crabapple is upright and narrow with excellent disease resistance.

Fireglow Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum ‘Fireglow’)

6-10′ tall and wide. Similar to ‘Bloodgood’ but smaller, with red color that is more persistent through the summer. Fall color is deep purple-crimson.

Shin Deshojo Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum ‘Shin Deshojo’)

7-9′ tall and wide. Densely-branched tree with beautiful color. New foliage emerges red, intermixed with green summer foliage, turning scarlet-orange in the fall.

Jade Butterfly Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba ‘Jade Butterfly’)

12-15′ tall, 10′ wide. A dwarf specimen with chartreuse leaves that turn golden in the fall. Unique leaves and shape.

Raspberry Spear Crabapple (Malus ‘JFS KW213MX’ P.A.F.)

20′ tall, 8′ wide. Deep pink buds open to bright magenta flowers, followed by purple-red berries that brighten to red towards the fall. Disease-resistant foliage emerges deep purple, turning bronze in late summer and picking up orange tints in the fall. The shape is tightly columnar.

Royal Beauty Crabapple (Malus ‘Royal Beauty‘)

8′ tall, 12′ wide. Purple buds turn to fragrant pink flowers in the spring, followed by showy red berries that persist into the fall. Foliage emerges deep red, turning bronzy-purple during the summer and burgundy in the fall. A beautiful weeping selection.

Hey very nice blog!

We just had a tree die in our front yard. The city gave us a voucher to replant. I really like the Japanese maple fire glow. I am just wondering how this works and how much the trees are. Also how much is the planting of the new? Thanks in advanced

Hi Jim, usually the city sends a list of trees to choose from along with the voucher. I don’t think Japanese Maples are typically covered with that program. Our planting price is half the price of the tree you select. There’s a pretty big price range depending on what you choose, so it might be easiest if you stop in with your list, voucher, and maybe some photos of your yard and house and have a nursery person help you select a good tree from the voucher list. If you’d like to call us instead (402-423-1133) we can get you started over the phone, too!
