(zone 8-10 )-  Discovered in 1942, the Chihuahua Spruce and is endangered with just 25 small populations in northwest Mexico, none comprising more than a few hundred trees.  It is a very attractive tree with blue-green needles, which resemble a Blue Spruce.  The thin, scaly bark flakes off in small circular plates creating an interesting effect.  This is particularly valuable in warm climates as it is one of the most heat-tolerant of all spruces.  Seedlings [40T X 20W] (zone 4-7)-  One of the most attractive conifers available!  The exterior needles are bright yellow in full sun or yellow-green in part shade, which contrast well against the interior needles of green.  The foliage may burn in full sun locations in hot summer climates, so we recommend morning exposure and well-drained soil for best performance.  Generally it prefers cooler, less humid climates, but requires some protection from cold winter winds in the north.  In spring, attractive red pollen cones provide interesting and showy contrast with the yellow foliage.  Grafts [35T x 15W]
Prunus incisa 'Kojo no mai', Fuji Cherry Rhododendron 'Red Pepper', Aromi Deciduous Azalea Rubus hayata-koidzumii (aka R. calycinoides, R. pentalobus)
1 gallon pot. The "Fuji Cherry" is an early flowering specimen, grown more as a shrub, reaching only 3' tall. It is well suited for bonsai or container gardens and is native to central Japan. The branches are twisted and wiry, with heavy bud set through the winter, which are exposed as this is a deciduous specimen. Following the bloom of P. mume, the buds open to a whitish pink, and last 3 or more weeks. In the Southeast most Prunus are sited most successfully with late day shade. This being a small grower, part sun is recommended, with moist, well drained soil. And with all Prunus, be aware of borer infestations.

Hardy in zones 5-8
(zone 7-9)-  This Aromi Hybrid Azalea is an eye popper in the early summer landscape.    The brilliant red flower buds open to an orange/ yellow and attract pollinators from afar.   Growing to about  6' x 6' in ten years, this deciduous azalea grows well in part shade, with acidic, well drained soils.

Thuja koraiensis Thujopsis dolobrata 'Jurassic Park' Trachycarous fortunei, Windmill Palm
Thuja koraiensis
Our Price: $30.00

(zone 5) The Korean Arborvitae is a small evergreen tree or large shrub native to Korea and northeastern China. Remaining populations in the wild of South Korea and China are protected. In cultivation this grows as a tree with slender, conical habit to 30' tall. In shrub form, the habit of specimens on mountain ridges, it will grow to 15' tall with a sprawling form. The attractive scale-like leaves are in flattened sprays. The leaves are green on top with contrasting white stomatal bands on the under side. Not very common but easy to grow. [30'T x 15'W]

'Jurassic Park' is a selection of Hiba arborvitae with especially thick and enlarged leaf scales which give it a primitive look. We obtained cuttings from the Unique Plant here in Chapel Hill where their plant grows in full sun. 'Jurassic Park' is a much better grower and more tolerant of less than ideal sites compared with other Thujopsis. Normally I would place Thujopsis in a partially shaded location and sometimes establishing the plant is still difficult.

An amazing number of these palms can be found growing in this area and they have the appearance of a true palm. This palm can grow to 50 feet tall with a single trunk covered with small fibers.  These are seedlings of hardy clones but young plants benefit from winter protection until some trunk is developed. These are also quite rapid growing once established.
