Red Maples

Most Maples are trees growing to 33–148 ft in height. Others are shrubs less than 10 meters tall with a number of small trunks originating at ground level. Most species are deciduous, and many are renowned for their autumn leaf colour, but a few in southern Asia and the Mediterranean region are evergreen. Most are shade-tolerant when young and are often riparian, understory, or pioneer species rather than climax overstory trees with a few exceptions such as Sugar Maple. Many of the root systems are typically dense and fibrous, inhibiting the growth of other vegetation underneath them. The genus is subdivided by its morphology into a multitude of sections and subsections.

Cherry (Yoshino)

The Yoshino Flowering Cherry Tree is widely used as an ornamental tree; valued for its abundance of soft, white flowers in spring. Its Oriental branching pattern displays a pure white cloud of delicate flowers that make your landscape look like springtime on parade. A profusion of white flowers signals the end of chilly winter. Just when you're thinking winter will never end, your Yoshino Cherry welcomes the arrival of spring as it explodes into bloom!

Fragrant flowers are replaced by glossy green leaves, and your tree will come to life in the summer as the birds flock to enjoy your Yoshino's fruit. The show continues as the leaves change to brilliant yellow-orange in the fall. As summer swings in and the flowers disappear, green leaves and shiny black decorative fruit take their place. Then, when summer gives way to fall, the glossy dark green foliage turns a deep golden-orange. 

Cherry (Kwanzan)

Green Giant

The Kwanzan cherry is the most popular cultivar of all the double flowering cherries, thanks to its stunning pink blossoms, good fall color, lack of fruit and upright, vase-shaped form. It is a splendid specimen that can be planted in containers, along walks and streets and in buffer strips. The Kwanzan cherry can even be used as a bonsai tree. Your Kwanzans will begin to bloom in April. Also a delight in the fall, when it will give you golden autumn leaves.

 

While it’s still in bloom your Kwanzan will start to grow young bronze leaves. As summer progresses the leaves will settle into a glossy light green with a slight red tinge making it a wonderful shade tree as well. The Kwanzan Cherry Tree blooms in large clusters of 3-5 flowers. These clusters are the thickest of all pink flowering trees and look similar to carnations.

Japanese Maple (Bloodgood)

The Bloodgood Japanese Maple tree is a slow growing tree, averaging 1-2 ft per year. In its maturity it will reach between 15-20 ft tall, with a trunk that is only as big and round as a drinking cup.  One of the most attractive features of the Bloodgood Japanese Maple is its ability to retain its color throughout the season. A deep shade of burgundy appears in the spring and lasts throughout summer. In the winter months a bright red takes over. 

Bloodgood Japanese Maples are suitable for small spaces. They can be planted near other trees or shrubs but are amazing as specimen trees.  If you have an area that could use some height, plant your Bloodgood in the middle. Then add some yellow or blue shrubs under and around your center piece.  Check out our landscape section for design ideas using Japanese Maple Trees. They are partial to full sun and adaptable to various soils. These beautiful trees are low maintenance and disease and pest resistant. 

Japanese Maple (Butterfly)

Green Giant

The Green Giant has become one of the most desired landscape trees in the US, and for good reason. With a growth rate of 3-5 feet a year this has one of the fastest growth rates of any Arborvitae available for sale.

 

Cloaked in thick, soft, dark green foliage from top to bottom the Green Giant Arborvitae makes an almost instant privacy screen. Often used in commercial settings to block undesirable views, imagine what it will do for you to block nosy neighbors!

As its common name implies, this is a “giant” Arborvitae, growing up to 60 feet high with a 20 foot spread. The sprays of foliage begin at the base of the Arborvitae and extend slightly upward along the entire tree. The vibrant green coloring stays true all year, not even fading during the cold winter months. Spacing them at 15’ apart ensures a super thick screen very quickly.

Plum (Thundercloud)

When Thundercloud wakes up from its winter sleep, it bursts out with a billow of pink blossoms, reminiscent of a cherry tree in full bloom. (This is why Thundercloud is often called the ‘cherry plum’.) Then, when the flowers have faded, deep plum-purple leaves emerge and provide a great shading canopy for the summer. In fall, the purple leaves stand in beautiful contrast to the jewel-box yellows and reds of other autumn leaves.

 

Now, this is an ornamental plum, so fruit isn’t the main draw here. Even so, it will sometimes bear small fruits for you in the summer. They are edible, but if you leave them on the tree the birds will enjoy them far more than you probably will.

 

​Thundercloud Plum grows fast, quickly shooting up to 15 -25 feet. This is a true low maintenance tree. It is very hardy and will thrive just about anywhere. For the best purple leaf color, plant it in full sun – the leaves will be a chartreuse green if planted in too much shade.

Cherry (Okame)

Cryptomeria

The Okame Cherry Tree or "Prunus Okame' is one of the earliest of the flowering cherries and it flowers from Canada to Central Florida.  In late winter or early spring, well before other trees are waking up, the Okame Cherry puts on a gasp-worthy display of carmine-pink flowers. The flowers bud on the naked stems before the leaves show their faces. 

 

Since this tree doesn’t require a long chill period to set the blossoms, it is a good flowering tree for the hot and humid south. It blooms in January in Florida and later the further north you get.

Plant this tree where it can be seen – along an entry drive, in the planter bed in the center of your yard, outside your kitchen window. It grows pretty fast - 1 to 2 feet a year – until it reaches 20 feet tall and does great in any but the wettest soils.  

Cryptomeria

Its delicious dark-red foliage holds its color throughout the summer better than other red-leaf varieties. In fall it turns a richer red to brighten your garden as the seasons turn.

 

The Crimson Queen has beautiful leaves are deeply cut and dissected. Most dissectum cultivars with excellent red color during spring and early summer turn green or bronze. 'Crimson Queen' however, carries their deep red color throughout the entire growing season. 'Crimson Queen' is very sun tolerant and can endure full sun with practically no sunburn, but under extremely sunny conditions the deep-red can turn to a beautiful orange-red. Fall color can bring on an array of bright scarlet tones.

Your Dogwood’s 4-inch, dark green leaves will appear in spring, but it’s in late spring when the real show begins.  Pointed bracts of 4-petaled white flowers will appear, giving this tree a unique show-stopping appearance.  As an added bonus, 1-inch, round red berries will begin to appear in the summer and be ready for a fall harvest.  Sweet and juicy, these berries are a favorite for wine makers, but can also be eaten straight from the tree. 
 
As fall approaches, your Dogwood will transform from green to a vibrant red/burgundy splash of color for your landscape.  Even when those leaves have come and gone, your remaining berries will still dangle from the branches, like an early holiday display right in your yard.
