     Trees 13 
    Temple Columnar Sugar Maple

    Acer saccharum 'Temple'
    This cultivar of Sugar Maple grows at a slow to moderate rate to about 50-60 ft. tall and 15 ft. wide at maturity with a distinct columnar form. Requiring moist, well drained soils, it does best where the roots are allowed to spread and are not restricted by pavement.  Dark green leaves cloak the tree during the summer and then erupt into brilliant reds and oranges with touches of golden yellow in fall.

    Crimson Frost Birch

    Betula ‘Crimson Frost’
    Here is a hardy, small to mid-sized purple-leaved birch that grows 25-40 ft. tall with an upright pyramidal shape. Noted for it’s reddish-purple foliage and exfoliating white bark with cinnamon hues, its green leaves turn orange, red and yellow in fall. Tiny flowers appear in early spring in separate catkins on the same tree. It does best in sun or part shade where moist soil conditions are the norm not the exception. Tolerant of most soil conditions.

    Red Rocket Red Maple

    Acer rubrum 'Red Rocket'
    Like its name, this American native is a choice shade tree for smaller areas, with a narrow upright habit that relaxes with age. It produces clusters of red-winged keys along the branches in late spring, followed by new red foliage that matures green. It grows only 10 ft. wide, but could grow 30 ft. tall in full sun and does best on moist, slightly acidic soils. Its fall finale is a blazing display of red leaves with orange highlights!  ** Currently unavailable

    Appalachian Red Redbud Tree

    Cercis canadensis 'Appalachian Red'
    This small tree bears absolutely stunning, multi-petalled fuchsia-red flowers later in the spring than other varieties, followed by dark green heart-shaped leaves, which turn yellow in autumn. Reputed to be a little hardier too, the colour is also a bit darker than the native species. Redbuds are understory plants, and as such they are best planted in a partly shaded sheltered location. It could grow 15-25 feet tall and wide, forming a graceful accent as it ages.

    Rising Fire American Hornbeam

    Carpinus americana 'Rising Fire'
    American hornbeams are well known for their adaptability to difficult conditions and their lovely fall show. This new 'bred in Ontario' cultivar offers something as well - a well-behaved columnar habit. The dense medium green foliage becomes a lively mix of bright red and orange in the fall (the image shows only the first signs) and it can reach 30 ft. tall but only 15 ft. wide in sun or part shade. An excellent tree for a shady site, or for subdued screening.

    Whitewater Weeping Redbud

    Cercis canadensis 'Whitewater'
    This ornamental tree (bred from native redbud) has a lovely weeping habit which adds a spark of uncommon beauty to your garden! Not only are its spring branches drenched in rosy purple 'sweet pea-like' flowers, it then bears vast numbers of heart-shaped leaves that range from being almost solidly white to green with green speckles. This variegated look dominates as the plant matures before reversing and becoming green with white accents. These are rare trees of smaller stature, but will grow to 8 ft. tall and 6 ft. wide in part sun to full shade. Careful consideration to site placement should be done, for redbuds in general in Waterloo Region will not tolerate exposed locations.  ** Currently unavailable

    Curly Weeping Willow

    Cornus kousa 'Scarlet Fire'
    'True' flowering dogwood as you would see in Virginia is not suited for much of Waterloo Region as it's not hardy enough.  The Rutgers breeding program over many decades has worked to breed Chinese Flowering Dogwood to have larger flowers with a similar show!  'Scarlet Fire' is one of the very first with that intense bright pink colouring and large flowers folks relish. A lower maintenance hybrid, it bears dark fuchsia blooms and is more resistant to common dogwood pests too - but as with most of these types, it is best not sited in overly exposed conditions.  It can grow to 25 ft. tall in sun or part shade and can spread 20 ft. wide at maturity. Classic red fruit follow the flowers and the fall foliage colour is also shades of red. Definitely one of the longest, fullest blooming pink Dogwoods available.

    Sunset Gold Honeylocust

    Gleditsia triacanthos 'Sunset Gold'
    This popular shade tree is valued for its delicate, ferny appearance which casts a dappled shade - letting enough sun in to let other plants and turf to grow. THIS new variety offers a new twist to an old favourite like 'Sunburst' in that its foliage emerges orange in spring before turning deep green and then ending the season in the fall outstanding gold! It will grow to 45 ft. tall and 40 ft. wide in full sun with an upright spreading habit and is tolerant of all urban conditions!

    Golden Variegated Tulip Tree

    Liriodendron tulipfera 'Aureo Marginatum'
    By far one of the most elegant of variegated trees - this majestic beauty produces striking creamy-white leaves with a center splash of green which mellows in summer to dark green and chartreuse. Tulip-shaped, lime-green, orange-marked flowers follow and are nestled among the foliage once the tree matures.  It thrives in moist, well-drained sunny sites, but will tolerate sand and clay as well, maturing to a majestic 40 to 70 ft. tall (in 80 years) and 25-30 ft. wide.

    Mountain Sentinel Trembling Aspen

    Populus tremuloides 'Mountain Sentinel'
    This fast growing North American nativar is an extremely narrow tree with smooth white bark and upright growing branches that develop tight to the strong central leader. While only growing 8 ft. wide, it quickly reaches 35 ft. tall in full sun and is covered in round, green leaves all season that flutter in the slightest breeze. This leaf motion contributes a soothing sound with even the smallest of breezes. Tolerant of all soil conditions both dry and wet, its golden display of foliage is stunning in the fall!

    Purple Spire Crabapple

    Sorbus decora
    Homeowners with small lots will be thrilled with this disease-resistant multi-stemmed native ornamental tree! Growing only 20 ft. tall and 15 ft. wide, it bears upright bunches of white flowers in the spring followed by clusters of berries that ripen to a bright scarlet red in late summer. Persisting into winter, the fruit provides ample food for birds. Its finely textured green leaves end the season with an outstanding display of red and orange! Grows best on well-drained soil conditions.

    Beacon Swamp White Oak

    Quercus bicolor 'Bonnie and Mike'
    Discovered by famed plantsman Michael Dirr and his wife Bonnie in Virginia in 2007, this oak has all the good attributes of common swamp oak - hardiness, slow growth which gradually increases to a moderate rate, disease resistance and moisture tolerance - all on a slender form with upright, tight branching. Best in sun, it will tolerate shade and can grow 30-35 ft. tall and 12-16 ft. wide. Golden foliage in autumn.

    Bloomerang Pink Perfume Lilac Treeform

    Syringa 'Bloomerang Pink Perfume'
    Don't settle for lilacs that bloom just once a year - plant the 'Bloomerang' series and enjoy months of blooms instead of just a few weeks! Bearing pretty pink flower clusters in the springtime, this hardy, ornamental tree then takes a brief rest to put on new growth before creating round after round of new flowers until frost. Requiring full sun and well drained conditions, it can grow un-pruned to 7-8 ft. tall, and should not be planted whre it will be overly wet.
