Corylus

Corylus fargesii full sun  new plant

Acclaimed for a strongly upright medium-sized habit and dramatic exfoliating River Birch-like bark, fast growing Farges Filbert was first mentioned in the late 1800s, but not introduced in the U.S. until after a 1996 Chinese, plant collecting expedition. Large, toothed oval green leaves show off a neat appearance –pink-blushed when young and yellow for a fall finale–amid tan and copper bark that sheds dramatic paper-thin creamy salmon-colored sheets. An underutilized deciduous specimen tree boasting year-round appeal and tremendous ornamental value, Corylus fargesii tackles difficult urban sites, grows in average garden soil, easily adapts to an array of climatic zones and seems unfazed by pests. Grows quickly

Large Band

Size: 20' 0"–30' 0" high x 18' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
