Sester's Dwarf Blue Spruce

Stunning blue needles, slow growth rate, and classic conical form make this an ideal plant for the modern landscape. Growing at only about one-fourth the rate of its large parent, it is the perfect small-garden form of Colorado Blue Spruce, and is virtually maintenance free to keep its tidy shape. It grows 3 to 6 inches a year and in 25 years will make about 11 feet tall by 5 feet wide.

Blue Point Juniper

This small heirloom evergreen has a dense, globe shaped growth habit. Rich green needles are arranged in flat layered sprays. The compact form makes this a popular accent plant for mixed borders. Very adaptable, tough, durable plant that grows only about an inch a year slowly to 3 feet tall by 4 feet wide in full sun to partial shade.

Gold Cone Juniper

Why consider an upright juniper like this over another? This particular variety was bred from common juniper (plants of which are found on the Canadian Shield) and it gains incredible toughness and disease resistance from this.  The growth rate is restrained, so there is less trimming required to maintain fullness. A true dwarf, it grows slowly to a height of only 5 or 6 feet by only 2 feet wide. The bright yellow growth on the new tips is less 'brassy' then some, but still permits contrast in the garden. An excellent upright feature in a small garden for those looking for easier to maintain plants.

Dandyman Pink Rhododendron

A unique combination of hardiness, heat tolerance and root rot resistance makes this hybrid a garden workhorse. Pink flowers adorn this attractive, dark green, well-branched shrub during its early mid-season bloom time. It can grow to as much as 6 feet tall by the same wide on well drained acidic soils. Protect from severe winter winds and harsh sun in winter.

Landmark Rhododendron

This stunning rhododendron offers large dark uniquely colured pink flowers in mid spring. The blossoms have ivory to white insides with pink edges. It grows to 5 ft. tall by 4 ft. wide at a moderate rate to 4 ft tall x 4 ft wide in partial shade. Protect from winter winds and harsh winter sun.

Trocadero Rhododendron

This striking rhododendron is hardy to -25C, making it one of the best rhododendrons for the shade garden. Blossoms are intensely red over dark green leaves. A compact grower, it will grow to reach 3 feet tall by 4 feet wide in 10 years in a partially shady location on well drained acidic soils.

Minuet Mountain Laurel

Mountain laurels are a family of evergreen shrubs that produce pretty flowers in the spring. Minuet is a miniature mountain laurel with small glossy leaves that grows only to 3 feet tall and wide. The banded flowers, however, are larger than the plant would suggest. They are pink in bud and fade to white with a richly colored cinnamon banding. It bears readily and is an interesting plant for the smaller garden. Like Rhododendrons or Azaleas, mountain laurels are best grown in cool, moist, rich, acidic, humusy, well-drained soils with morning sun and early to mid-afternoon shade. They will not grow well in heavy clay soils, and raised planting beds that are mulched should be considered. Prune lightly after flowering.

Rising Star Yew

Named 'Rising Star' because of it's excellent dense and uniform growth with a perfect upright shape that doesn't require pruning. Unlike other upright cylindrical yews like Hick's, 'Rising Star' is an all male plant that won't produce the red berries typically found. It grows to 7' tall by approximately 2 feet wide in sun or partial shade. While hardy to Waterloo, it is still prudent to protect this plant from drying winter winds if placed on a north or west exposure.
