American Sweetgum Shade Tree

AMERICAN SWEETGUM

Liquidambar styraciflua

Up to 2.5″ Caliper Sizes Available – Delivered and Planted

The American Sweetgum tree (or “Sweet Gum” tree), a moderately fast-growing shade tree for large properties, makes an excellent addition to your wildlife-friendly garden. Its foliage will feed caterpillars of the breathtaking, ghostly-green luna moth, and its fruits will produce finch seed as fine as any you can buy at the store. About those fruits… they’re prickly capsules called “gumballs” that are good for painting as ornaments, scattering among your flowers to deter mischievous cats, or throwing at your little brother. The real reason you’ll want this tree, however, is for the fall color. Red, orange, yellow, purple, and green leaves will appear – sometimes on the same branch. It’s a whole bag of Skittles® candy colors!

Pagoda Dogwood Big Tree

Pagoda Dogwood

Cornus alternifolia

Up to 2.5″ Caliper Sizes Available – Delivered and Planted

Pagoda Dogwood is so named for its horizontal branching structure that brings to mind the layered tiers of a Chinese pagoda. This small but wide-spreading ornamental tree will grace your landscape with an easy elegance that compliments both formal and informal style. Its architectural lines are most striking in winter, when the horizontal branches are laid bare and topped with snow, or in late spring, when they’re peppered with fuzzy white flowers, but we like Pagoda Dogwood best in summer, when songbirds come to plunder the fruits. Start your day with a cup of joe on the deck, watching the birds enjoying your Pagoda Dogwood, and we guarantee you can’t help but face the day in a good mood!

Sunburst® Honeylocust

SUNBURST® HONEYLOCUST

Gleditsia tri inermis ‘Suncole’

Up to 2.5″ Caliper Sizes Available – Delivered and Planted

Sunburst® Honeylocust cheerfully shouts, “Hello, Spring!” with its glorious glowing yellow foliage. As summer heats up, it settles down to a pretty peapod-green color, only to trade green leaves for gold again in fall. This special version of our native Honeylocust tree casts a dappled shade that’s just right for reading a book or sharing an outdoor meal with family or friends. Sunburst is a waterwise, low-maintenance tree that won’t hog your time or resources. Even fall cleanup is a piece of cake! The tiny leaflets mostly blow away, and the leaf stems that remain can be gathered up or left in place to decompose naturally.
