(Star Jasmine)

Fragrant blooms are what make this evergreen woody vine stand out in a crowd. Though commonly grown in the American South, star jasmine, or Confederate jasmine, actually originates from China, Korea and Japan. Its glossy, oval leaves are dark green and change to a pretty bronze-red in winter. Throughout the growing season it bears many, star-shaped, creamy white flowers that have a strong, sweet fragrance, which compel one to linger nearby.

Star jasmine prefers full to partial sun and organic...

(Star Jasmine)

Sweetly fragrant, yellow-white blooms are what make this evergreen woody vine stand out in a crowd. Though commonly grown in the American South, Confederate jasmine actually comes from China, Korea and Japan. Introduced by Cedar Lane Farms in Madison, Georgia, the cultivar 'Madison' is a very cold hardy selection. Its glossy oval leaves are dark green and change to a pretty bronze-red in winter. Severed leaves and stems emit a thick milky sap. Throughout the growing season it bears many strongly...

(Star Jasmine)

Showy variegated foliage almost upstages the heavenly scented flowers of this striking cultivar of Confederate jasmine (which comes from eastern Asia, not the southern United States). Relatively bushy and slow-growing, 'Tricolor' sports glossy oval leaves which emerge pink and mature to green mottled with white. To top it off, they change to a pretty bronze-red in winter. Throughout the growing season it bears many star-shaped, creamy white flowers that have a strong, sweet fragrance, which compel...

(Star Jasmine)

Showy variegated foliage almost upstages the heavenly scented flowers of this striking cultivar of Confederate jasmine (which comes from eastern Asia, not the southern United States). Not a true jasmine but an easier to grow look-alike, it sports glossy oval leaves that are splashed and edged with ivory-white variegation. To top it off, they become red-tinged in winter. Throughout the growing season it bears many star-shaped, creamy white flowers that have a strong, sweet fragrance, which compel...

(Canada Hemlock, Sargent's Weeping Canada Hemlock)

Sargent's weeping hemlock is a graceful evergreen that is beautiful as a feature plant, espalier, in a grouping or next to a reflecting pond. 'Sargentii' ('Pendula' or form pendula) has a graceful spreading, pendulous shape formed by weeping branches lined with dark green needles. This cultivar was first encountered in Upstate New York around 1870. Small brown cones are formed in late summer and may be used in craft projects.

This eastern North America native is happiest in organic,...

(Cedar Elm)

Adapted to the heat and occasional drought of its native range (south-central United States and northeastern Mexico), this small to large deciduous or evergreen tree is also notable for its tiny leaves and late-summer bloom. In these traits it resembles lacebark elm (Ulmus parvifolia), with which it hybridizes. Long-lived, dense, and round-headed, it has corky gray bark which is sometimes winged on its branchlets.

The leaves are quintessential elm: oval, rough, jaggedly toothed, and...

(Camperdown Elm, European Mountain Elm, Scotch Elm)

A dwarf weeping selection of a stately Eurasian tree, 'Camperdownii' forms a domed lampshade-like crown of zigzagging branches. The toothed, oval, medium to dark green leaves have rough upper and downy lower surfaces. In early spring inconspicuous reddish flowers cover the leafless branches, followed by clouds of fuzzy winged green fruits that ripen to tan. In autumn the leaves turn shades of yellow before falling to reveal the contorted branches and grayish-brown bark of this architectural tree....

(Chinese Elm, Lacebark Elm)

One of the most outstanding medium-sized trees for the landscape, this variable and disease-resistant East Asian elm bears small, glossy, deciduous or semi-evergreen leaves, which in forms such as 'Burgundy' and 'Pathfinder' turn a good red in fall. Many selections ('Hallelujah' and 'Dynasty' among them) have handsome exfoliating bark mottled with patches of orange, tan, gray, and other contrasting colors. Several dwarf cultivars (including 'Frosty', 'Geisha', and 'Catlin') are also available, characterized...

(Chinese Elm, Drake Elm)

A meritorious selection of a beautiful and disease-resistant East Asian elm, 'Drake' bears small, glossy, deciduous or semi-evergreen leaves that turn shades of yellow and red in fall. Like other selections, it has attractive exfoliating bark, with patches of orange, tan, gray, and green. This tree is an especially good choice for mild climates, where it often holds its leaves into winter. In colder regions, the leaves drop in autumn, and the bark takes the starring role. The flowers and winged seeds...

(Chinese Elm, Dynasty Elm)

A fast-growing, cold-hardy selection of a beautiful and disease-resistant East Asian elm, 'Dynasty' grows relatively rapidly into a medium-sized, vase-shaped tree. Its relatively erect, arching branches do not bow as close to the ground as those of some other selections. Its small, oval, glossy dark green leaves turn a good red in fall. The foliage is evergreen in mild climates. The gray bark exfoliates moderately to display flecks of orange, tan, gray, and green. The flowers and winged seeds appear...
