We are open all season! Please see our Nursery Winter Hours at the bottom of this page.
The color white in Winter always seems so fresh and hopeful, a sign that Spring is on its way. It is crisp and clean and stands out so bright and proud on a dark gloomy day. It adds life to a garden that can sometimes start to look dark and desolate. Probably most famous for its distinctive white color is Betula utilis var. jacquemontii (aka Whitebarked Himalayan Birch), sure to make a huge impact in any garden.
Stewartia pseudocamellia not only has brilliant large white blooms in the summer, but its mottled bark of grayish white, brown, and orange is a true stand out in winter as well.
White blooming Hellebores like 'Jacob,' 'Joshua,' or 'Josef Lemper' always shine with their brilliant white blooms. Another option is Helleborus 'Silver Dollar' with its striking silver foliage as well as one of our favorites 'Ivory Prince,' with a reliable long lasting bloom and leathery green foliage.
Looking forward to the winter months you will see primroses, violas, and snowdrop bulbs showing up to keep you in white all season long.
This Lion's Head Japanese Maple is the perfect specimen for containers or the small to medium sized garden. Easy to grow in moist, organically rich, well-draining soils and very low maintenance, this attractive little tree gives a beautiful performance year-round. Typically featuring low branching and sporting a rounded growth habit, it's delicate leaves are crinkled, collecting in dense tufts along the branches. In the fall, enjoy spectacular hues of yellows, reddish-purples, oranges, and bronzes.

Witchhazel Hamamelis intermedia
'Diane' 'Arnold Promise' 'Jelena'
This standout deciduous shrub has bare branches that are covered in January and February with filamentous blooms that somewhat resemble spiders. These fragrant blooms can last upward of two months, truly making this plant the "Queen of Winter." And if the Winter show isn't enough, in Fall you are treated to a blaze of fiery colors ranging from gold, orange, and red.
Try underplanting your Witchhazel with Black Mondo Grass to compliment the brilliant colored blooms or against a backdrop of coppery orange and brown colors, such as the bark of Acer griseum (Paperbark Maple).
We were happy once again, to partner with Kristy Ditmore from Under the Arbor Landscape Design to create the "Monet Dreamed Here" display garden.
Inviting you to relax on this stunning patio near a tranquil gazing pool, the striking plant palette featured beautiful colors and textures for year round appeal. From the rich autumnal hues of Leucothoe axillaris and Nandina domestica 'Compacta' to the silver plum foliage of Heuchera 'Spellbound' and the elegance of Helleborus 'Cinnamon Snow'. Add winter interest to the landscape with Pinus virginiana 'Water Golden' and the striking architectural interest of Mahonia x media 'Winter Sun'.
It's easy to see why this garden was named, "Monet Dreamed Here". Come on down to the nursery to see more of these plant delights to add to your landscape.
