Taxus

Taxus media ‘Bonnie Green Mound’ full sun  partial shade

Honored for their longevity since ancient times, Yews have always conveyed classic elements of design. Their amazing versatility affords an array of styles—topiaries, hedges or au natural—which easily enhances any garden scheme. Closely related to the popular Taxus ‘Densiformis’, this tidy verdant Taxus is distinguished by a fine texture, a compact rounded form becoming more dense with age, bright green needles and some drought tolerance once established.

We envision the evergreen Bonnie shaped into globes or bullets standing like sentinels, contrasted against silvery Teucriums or punctated amid boxwoods for a green-on-green textural contrast—all vignettes guaranteed to provide high drama.

Size: 3' 0"–5' 0" high x 4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Sterling Spring blooming shrubs, plus head-turning Perennials.

Here’s the tall and short of it…

Sterling spring blooming shrubs, all dressed in classy green leaves and crisp white flowers. Viburnum plicatum ‘Summer Snowflake’ is the largest of our featured shrubs, fashioning graceful somewhat horizontal branches adorned with snowy lace caps. Cultivated since 1868, well-loved Spiraea x vanhouttei makes a shapely low maintenance addition to sunny mixed borders, while smaller-statured Deutzia gracilis ‘Nikko' offers a galaxy of dainty white blooms perfect for the rockery, nestled along steps or in a container.

Head turning Perennials

Nearly 65” of rain coupled with chilly spring days spawned a remarkable surge of lush foliar growth, plus spectacular long-lasting flowers in our nursery & garden this year. Spring is always such an exciting time as we watch the multitude of leaves, buds and blooms that seemingly unfurl over night plus the numerous new shoots stretching skyward. Dicentra ‘Gold Heart’s delicate golden foliage glows in dappled shady niches, while the dark leaves of Eupatorium ‘Chocolate’, Astrantia ‘Moulin Rouge's exquisite domes, and the richly colored Sedum ‘Jose Aubergine’ promise to turn more than a few heads in your garden. Perhaps you could let Campanula ‘Blue Waterfall’ cascade down your garden steps, or brighten up a sunny bed with Geum ‘Prinses Juliana’. We hope you’ll make room for a few of these shrubs & perennials. Our extensive display borders which surround the nursery are now open through Colombus Day weekend. Our first guided Saturday Stroll is June 24th., followed by July 15th & 29th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
