(Aronia melanocarpa) Native
One of the best shrubs for brilliant red fall color (see immediately above)...glossy green leaves in summer are also attractive...white flowers in spring (pictured at top above) are followed by glossy red fruits that are technically edible but best suited to jellies and jams due to astringent taste...fruits are considered a "super fruit" given the many health benefits...grows in virtually all soils: wet, sandy, clay, sand...locate in sun for best fruit production, though the shrub will also grow in partial shade...reaches eight ft. high and wide but will sucker and produce colonies if allowed (the birds will thank you).
available spring 2021
(Forsythia viridissima x 'Bronxensis')
Looking for a short shrub? This slow-growing forsythia will only reach two ft. high (you read that correctly, see picture above)...spread is limited to two or three ft...also has serrated bright green leaves that provide an interesting textural effect to any landscape...please note that this forsythia does not produce the bright yellow flowers, they are a creamy white instead.
12" tall: $24
Magnolia, White Flowering
(Magnolia x stellata 'Royal Star')
Compact Mature Size: 'Royal Star' magnolia matures to only 15 ft. high by 12 ft. wide...features a reliable burst of white each spring: pink buds open to pleasantly fragrant, dense 3-4" white flowers in late April (see picture above)...clean dark green foliage looks great all summer...flowers when only several feet tall, so no waiting around!
Larger Mature Size: 'Centennial' is a more vigorous growing magnolia that reaches a larger ultimate size than 'Royal Star', topping out at 25 ft. high and 20 ft. wide...it's flowers are half the size of 'Royal Star' and its form is more formally defined with a central leader and regular branching.
Magnolia, Yellow Flowering
(Magnolia acuminata x 'Butterflies')
'Butterlies' magnolia grows ten inches annually here in Cambridge...reaches 20 ft. tall and 15 ft. wide in a pyramidal tree form or can be trained into a shrub form (see picture immediately above)...flowers prior to leaf emergence for optimal impact.
