     Trees 11 
    June Snow Dogwood

    Acer x freemanii 'Bailston'
    Freemanii maples are some of the most popular hybridized tree species (counting Autumn Blaze, Autumn Fantasy, and many others).  Matador continues this tradition of excellence. Freemanii's are characterized by vigorous growth and adaptability. Matador has this but also an improved habit, sturdier upright branching and superior deeper red fall colouring that develops a bit later, and holds later, than most of the others. It grows to 45' tall by approximately 30' wide in most soil conditions.

    Rugged Ridge Maple

    Acer miyabei 'JFS-KW3AMI'
    Deeply furrowed, corky bark sets this impressive cultivar apart from all others! The ‘rugged’ in the name of this variety does not come lightly, as it is tough, adaptable and tolerant of almost all stressful conditions. It can reach 45 ft. tall and 40 ft. wide in sun or part shade. Covered with dark green foliage, its leaves turn yellow in the autumn. A shapely and vigorous tree that would be an excellent street tree or in other difficult urban conditions.

    Bowhall Maple

    Acer rubrum 'Bowhall'
    Bowhall is a tightly formed, sturdy,  narrow tree that would be excellent for street plantings or other narrow spaces. A hybridized variety of Native Red Maple, it grows well in most soil type, has excellent foliage colour of yellow-orange to orangey red in the fall, and will grow to 40 feet tall by about 15 feet wide. (Ltd. availability).

    Weeping Wonder Gingko

    Cercidiphyllum japonicum 'Claim Jumper'
    Katsuras are not well-known, but they are excellent trees for many situations.  This very new and unusual katsura has soft golden leaves right from spring until the frost, and will brighten and contrast against the other trees around it. Throughout summer the more shaded leaves will turn green while those in the sun will remain yellow or even almost white. Autumn brings the characteristic sweet fragrance and buttery golden colours that Katsuras are famous for. Katsuras benefit from additional moisture during droughty periods and during establishment, but can also tolerate similar conditions that birch favour, and might be considered a substitute with fewer pest issues.

    Little Woody Redbud

    Cercis canadensis 'Little Woody'
    Redbuds are known for their deep purple pink blossoms that present themselves on the branches and twigs in early spring.  Little Woody offers this, but in a far smaller size than the native Redbud.  It has a small vase shaped canopy and crinkled deep green heart shaped leaves that turn a lovely yellow in fall. It grows to 6 to 8 feet tall by 8 to 10 feet wide. Typically an understory tree, redbuds prefer a sheltered spot with sun to partial shade.  ** Currently unavailable

    Hanna's Heart Katsura

    Cercidiphyllum japonicum 'Hanna's Heart'
    This new and very hardy Katsura is noted for its upright compact form and deep green heart-shaped leaves that turn a beautiful yellow in the fall. Like other Katsuras, it emits a delicate sweet candy floss like scent as the leaves are preparing to leave the tree in the fall. It only grows 25 ft. tall by 10 ft. wide in sun in most soil types, making it a good tree for screening and smaller yards.

    Rosy Teacups Chinese Dogwood

    Cornus kousa x nuttalli 'Rosy Teacups'
    In Waterloo Region Chinese flowering dogwoods survive best of these beautiful plants. This hybrdized cross between Chinese and Pacific dogwoods offers a tremendous show of beautiful 3 inch wide light rose pink blossoms that can last for up to 3 weeks. These blossoms form 1 inch orange red fruit in late summer that are highly favoured by birds. The disease resistant foliage is medium green in summer turning dark red in the fall. It grows to approximately 25 feet tall and widee in sun to light shade conditions. A multi-season showpiece for any yard.

    Strawberry Sundae Hydrangea Treeform

    Hydrangea paniculata 'Renhy'
    Vanilla Strawberry hydrangea is has blossoms that open as white cones and then as the temperature drops in late summer the blossoms develop an beautiful pink overlay to this white colouring, and later it turns more strawberry red. Now this stunning hydrangea is available as a trained and compact tree that is perfect as an accent for small gardens. Grows to 8 feet tall by 6 feet wide in sun or partial shade.

    Slender Silhouette Sweet Gum

    Liquidambar styraciflua 'Slender Silhouette'
    Look closely at the leaves of this thick tree and you will see why it is a star. It's narrow columnar form is full of dark green star shaped leaves that turn lovely yellow to deep red in the fall.  An excellent choice for tight spaces, small gardens or as a striking vertical accdent. Grows quickly to as tall as 35 feet or more by only 4 to 5 feet wide. Unlike most sweet gums, very few spiky seeds are produced. Trees were awarded a top Ontario prize in 2016.

    Sunsprite Magnolia

    Magnolia 'Sun Sprite'
    Don't think you have room for a magnolia? Think again. This beautiful tree has an extremely narrow growth habit but is slower growing. At 15 years old, the original plant is not much more than 12 feet tall and only about a foot wide! Deep golden yellow flowers have strong purple splashes at their bases. Very late blooming, it also avoids most late frosts. A rare offering, this will fit in the smallest of gardens. As with all magnolias in Waterloo Region, it should be carefully sited away from strong northwest winter winds.

    Candied Apple Crabapple

    Malus 'Weepcanzam'
    Candied Apple crabapple is a compact and hardy weeping tree with a plentitude of soft pink blossoms in May. Unique for this year is finding this variety where the trunk of the tree has been trained into a broad spiral, giving the tree a distinctive form additional to its pretty flowers and dark red persistent fruit that hold on into the winter and are favoured by birds.  Leaves are green with wine coloured highlights, turning green in fall. A dwarf tree that grows to approximately 15 feet, but that can be pruned to maintain its size and form.

    Exclamation London Plane Tree

    Platanus x acerifolia 'Exclamation'
    This hybrid selection of the London planetree was selected for its uniform, upright-pyramidal habit, which is conical in its youth; its strong central leader; and attractive large green foliage that turns yellow in fall. This plant is densely branched, has a moderate growth rate, is light-fruiting, and shows resistance to frost cracking and anthracnose (common problems with most other varieties of plane tree). It develops an attractive peeling bark that planetrees are noted for and will grow someday to  60' in height with a 30' spread.  * Special order

    Shingle Oak

    Quercus imbricaria
    The first thing you will notice about this unique tree is how 'un-oak' looking the uniquely shaped rich green leaves are. Very different! Historically valued for its durable wood, the Shingle Oak (also known as Northern Laurel Oak) forms a straight trunk and rounded crown, and grows to 40 to 60 feet tall by 50 feet wide in its lifetime. Small spring catkins form dark brown shiny acorns that are a favourite of wildlife.

    Skinny Genes Oak

    Quercus robur x alba 'Skinny Genes'
    How exciting is this tree! Skinny Genes is a new hybrid cross of English and White Oaks. It is possibly the narrowest, tightest branched oak developed to date. It grows quickly to 45 ft. tall but when fully mature is only 10 ft. wide. Show-stopping mildew resistant glossy dark green foliage turns tawny yellow before defoliating for winter. Adaptable to many soil types, it is a useful tree for screening of smaller yards.

    Accolade Elm

    Ulmus 'Morton'
    A hybrid variety of elm, Accolade's disease and insect resistance compared to the problematic American Elm sets this fine vase-shaped cultivar apart. Beautifully covered in glossy dark green foliage, it is tolerant of heat, drought and all but extremely heavy clay conditions.  It can reach 40-60 ft. tall in its lifetime, spreading to 40 ft. wide at the crown. Leaves turn a pleasant golden yellow in the autumn. Named Urban Tree of the Year in 2012. ** Special order
