Trees and Shrubs

This list includes all woody plants which are not Camellias.

Scientific name (Genus and species) is followed by the 'cultivar' or variety and the common name follows a comma.

The hardiness zone is indicated, or our best guess if unknown.

The description usually includes habits and high points, and sometimes some background on the plant.

Often people ask about the ultimate height and width of a plant but the size is very dependent on the growing conditions of each individual plant. For example an oak tree grown in an open field is very different than one grown in the middle of a forest. We will try to indicate the normal height and width of a mature specimen with the description [8'T X 4'W].

We will also make some cultural recommendations based on our experiences.

The prices indicate the age and size of the plants, so most plants over $16 are two or more years old and well established. Very rare plants may cost more.

(zone 7-9) – This semi-evergreen large shrub is an incredible butterfly attractant. Small pinkish-white, fragrant flowers adorn the plant from July to October. It prefers full sun to part shade and moist, but well-drained soils. [5’T x 6’W] (zone 5-9)-  This is a very heat tolerant fir that I have seen growing in southern Alabama quite happily.   The foliage is a wonderful dark green and the tree is quite fast-growing.   This can be used as understock for other fir species which allows some other species to be grown successfully in the South.   A must have for southern conifer collectors.

(zone 7-9)-  This Camellia Forest introduction is a male clone with short, dark green shiny leaves.  The plant is quite attractive and very compact, growing about 3 inches per year.   This is a heavy bloomer of deep maroon 4 petaled flowers and is necessary for pollination of female clones for berry set.   Grow in part to full shade with moist, well-drained soil.  Protect from deer, as these are favored by them!  [3'T X 3'W]

A very interesting selection of Boxwood that can be used in the landscape or for Bonsai and evergreen, winter interest containers.

[4'T x 6'W]
4 qt pot. This very fruitful clone makes an excellent show in the autumn. A selection made at Camellia Forest.

(zone 5-9)-  A Japanese selection of the Himalayan native "perennial Bluebeard".  The variegated foliage has a pungent smell, which repels all pests away, including deer.  In late summer small clusters of blue flowers appear, creating a blue haze above the bright foliage.  Post frost you can cut it to the ground, as it will return in spring, creating a rounded bush of 2-3' tall and wide.  Plant in part to full sun, with moist well drained soil. [4'T X 3'W]
Ceanothus x pallidus 'Marie Simon' Cedrus deodara 'Eisregen', Hardy Deodar Cedar Cedrus deodara 'Electra', Blue Deodar Cedar
(zone 6-9)- This hybrid of C. x delilianus and C. ovatus has many different characteristics. The pink “foamy” flowers appear in dense clusters along the new growth in late spring and continue sporadically till fall. This shrub is deciduous and has showy red stems for winter interest. We grow it in nearly full shade, but it can be grown in full sun and rather dry soil. This will grow into a shrub with a dense habit and is very attractive while flowering.

(zone 6-9)-   Karl Fuchs collected seeds of this species in the mountains of Afghanistan and named several selections for extra cold hardiness. This one has very blue needles and pictures show an open growing tree with a narrow conical habit.  [50'T x 25'W] (zone 6a-8b)-  A dense, pyramidal, slow growing conifer perfect for the sunny rock garden.  The habit is compact and upright.   Brilliant blue needles add color and texture.  This is a wonderful specimen for small gardens, containers, or bonsai.  [10’T X 6’W]

Cephalotaxus harringtonia
Our Price: $20.00
(zone 7)-  A unique dwarf spreading evergreen with bluish-green needles. The lowest of the dwarf forms that rarely develops a leader. A wonderful specimen for smaller spaces, rock gardens and containers.  The needles are powder blue colored, and grow in dense bunches along the branches.  Full sun to part shade and well-drained soil will result in best growth.  Generally the deer stay away from Cedrus, though we do not refer to any plant as "deer proof".  [8'T X 8'W] (zone 6-9)- This is a tough, stress-resistant conifer that can be grown in full sun to dense shade. The growing habit is low and prostrate. Great plant for low foundations, edge of the border or to fall over a wall. Very easy to grow! [2'T x4'W]
(zone 6-9)- Plum yews are wonderful yew look-alikes that are, among other things, highly deer resistant and very heat tolerant. This form is broadly upright, perhaps 4'-6' tall in ten years with a mature height of 10' or more, 2/3's of that in width. Did I mention these plants are very heat tolerant? Another bonus, it grows well in full sun to dense shade, making it a must have for most gardeners! [10'T x 6'W]
