Milkweeds, Liatris, Joe Pye, Silphium, summersweet, asters, skullcap, Spigelia, Rudbeckia, elderberry, and Hydrangeas are now, or will soon be on display. The following plants are just a few of what we have ready for your enjoyment: Native Rhododendrons, Maidenair Ferns, Royal and Cinnamon Ferns, red maples and their cultivars, American Elms (2 hardy varieties), American Beech, musclewood, oaks, dogwoods (5 varieties), redbuds (5 varieties), hollies, hazelnuts, red and bottlebrush buckeyes, elegant arbor vitae, bald cypress and Hydrangeas (3 varieties).
We have many earthly delights from which to choose, many of which are not on our website! Come by to see, learn and enjoy.
Cicada update: The 17 year cicadas have mated and are now on the wane. The female cicadas have made slits in which their eggs are placed in the ends of tree and shrub branches, preferring stems that are about 1/8- to 1/2-inch in diameter. We are seeing branch tips wither and die back, primarily in the tall reaches of local forest trees. The young trees and shrubs seem mostly unaffected, at least, so far.
Our address is 5200 West Heaps Road, Pylesville, MD 21132. (410) 836-0500.
