Japanese Maples: We stock hundreds of Japanese maple varieties and thousands of trees. We have as many as 300+ different cultivars of Japanese maples at any one time!  We've been in business for nearly 40 years and with our decades of experience, we can help you with selection, placement, planting, care, pruning, watering, problems, and all other things related to maples. We have demonstration gardens and plantings on our grounds including a Japanese garden with large koi pond, and are developing additional gardens.

Shade Trees & other plants: We have a large selection of trees and shrubs including the best selection of large, landscape-sized shade trees in the area.

Bamboo: We're have the largest stock of bamboo in the area. We have dozens of different varieties of bamboo, including both spreading and non-spreading varieties. We have mature groves on our acreage that we harvest and propagate, and visitors are welcome to stroll through these groves. We can help you choose a bamboo for your garden and can offer advice on containment, placement, planting, watering, and care.

Encore Azaleas! These azaleas bloom heavily in the spring, take a brief rest, then re-bloom throughout spring, summer, and often well into December. In this area, we typically have blooms about 8 months of the year or more. In bloom now. Makes a nice seasonal gift.
