One of a kind!

This is a seedling Acer palmatum selected from a batch of seedlings collected from Acer palmatum 'Linearlobum'. It just celebrated it's 6th birthday.

New Grafts begining to grow.

The Wisterias that we grafted back in February in March are now begining to grow. Often the flower buds shoot out first as you can see here with this double flowered Black Dragon.

Wisteria floribunda 'Mon Nishiki'

We have 2 variegated cultivars, Wisteria floribunda 'Mon Nishiki' & Wisteria sinensis 'Variegata' Sometimes one looks better, sometimes the other! At the moment 'Mon Nishiki looks the best.

Two Cool Dove Trees

Davidia involucrata 'Sonoma' (right) is famous for flowering at a very young age. This brand new liner growing in an Airpot is just proving a point!!

Davidia involucrata 'Lady Sunshine' (below) is a new variegated cultivar of the Dove Tree.

Two Currants

These are 2 of our favorite Currants, the photo above doesn't do justice to Ribes sanguineum 'Brocklebankii' but it's a great plant! Below is Ribes sanguineum 'Variegatum', selected for the speckled variegation of it's leaves it also has in my opionion some of the best flowers.
