     Evergreens - Gallery 3 
    Balsam Fir

    Although one of the most important conifers of the Boreal Forest, it is most commonly known in December as a popular fresh cut Christmas tree! This fir grows 6-8" per year to 40-60 ft. tall with a well-shaped pyramidal form and narrow crown. Branches are covered with soft, bright green, extremely fragrant needles. It grows best in full sun in acidic, moist to dampish soil.

    Lemon Thread False Cypress

    Lemon Thread is a slow-growing, semi-dwarf, broadly-conical, shrubby cypress variety that will typically grow to 3-5' over the first 20 years but may eventually reach 10-12' tall in time. It is noted for its bright yellow thread-like foliage which can be quite attractive in the winter. Grows best in a spot that offers some respite from intense sun in the afternoon, where the soils are well drained.

    Fantastica Rhododendron

    Masses of wavy-edged mid spring flowers are shiny light red at the edges with creamy pink in the center on this dense rhododendron. Large dark leathery leaves will remain green year-round. This plant grows to around 3 feet tall in a partially shaded area that is sheltered from drying west winds. Winter protection (burlap, applying Wilt-Pruf) is recommended.

    Purple Passion Rhododendron

    Possibly a seedling of 'Purple Splendor', this variety offers similar showy spherical clusters of luminous reddish purplish-plum coloured flowers in late spring. Large glossy dark green leaves remain year-round. It is vigorous, dense and compact, growing 4-6 ft. tall and wide in a partially shaded location. Winter protection is required. ** Special order

    Little Heath Japanese Pieris

    This little charmer is a superb dwarf evergreen covered by elongated green leaves with white margins with new leaves emerging pinkish-red. Covered with whimsical sprays of white flowers in early spring, it grows slowly to 2 ft. tall and round in part shade, forming a compact shrub without pruning. Related to Rhodos, it requires shady, moist, acidic, well-drained soil.

    Castle Spire Holly

    This new variety of Holly is truly a 'Proven Winner'! Slow growing to 6-1/2 ft. tall by 40 inches wide in a compact pyramidal form, its dark green glossy leaves and superior vigour is a great improvement over older varieties. It grows best in part shade, and it will produce bright red berries for fall show when planted with a pollinator holly.

    DreamJoy Juniper

    This is not a juniper like your Mom and Dad had in the garden!  It's compact and well behaved growth is easy to maintain, and as it grows about 2 feet tall by about 3 feet wide it can be placed almost anywhere and it will do well. But the most striking thing is this hardy plant's colouring.  Every single growing tip looks like a bright star of yellow in a cool blue green sea - it's unlike any juniper you may have seen before.  Perfect in a foundation planting, mixed bed or as an evergreen groundcover.

    Tolleson's Blue Weeping Juniper

    This delicate looking plant is deceiving - it's anything but!  A durable accent plant with cascading, broad arching branches of soft blue green, it is both an eyecatching accent plant and a tree that can add year round privacy in constrained areas.  Grows to approximately 12' tall by 8 to 10 feet wide, it can be easily trimmed, or left to its own devices.  Grows best in full sun to light shade conditions.  ** Not available 2020.

    Hughes Juniper

    This sun-loving, superb ground-hugging evergreen is a winner! Covered in fine textured silvery-blue foliage that turns a slightly purplish color in fall, it spreads slowly to 5 ft. wide but only grows 12-18" tall. Extremely hardy, it requires little maintenance, is disease resistant, drought and wind-tolerant. A terrific year-round groundcover for a garden or gentle slope!

    Sherwood Moss Cedar
    Another unusual addition to the garden, this unusual cedar's overall variegated look gives it a sparkling appearance. A semi-dwarf cedar, it grows slowly in a roughly upright habit to a height of 4 to 6 feet with a spread of about 3 feet. The foliage tips are brushed creamy-white, making this an unusual specimen plant and perfect as an accent.
    Whipcord Cedar

    The unusual foliage on this low, mop-head-like plant consists of long, thick, glossy tendrils that suggest fireworks. Related to a giant forest tree, but much smaller, the many branches seem to explode upward and send sparks cascading in all directions. Bright yellow green foliage in summer turns to bronze in winter, matching the richly colored wood. A limited supply of this small growing plant (5 feet tall by 4 feet wide) will be something not seen in every garden but yours!

    Jeddeloh Dwarf Hemlock
    Hemlocks are well known for reaching towering heights, but this dwarf hemlock is a very slow grower that only grows to about 3 feet tall. Hemlocks are fairly shade tolerant plants, but in dense shade they often will be less dense in appearance.  While hemlocks are hardy, there are two major considerations when incorporating them in a landscape. Firstly, their branches are soft and fragile, so it's not really a plant for where you throw the snow. Secondly, as a woodland plant they prefer a moist siting that is not over exposed to harsh winter winds.  They would much prefer a rich compost rich soil underneath a forest canopy where there is adequate moisture.
