(Nannyberry)

Nannyberry is a hardy, deciduous woodland shrub with glossy leaves, blue/black berries and reddish purple fall foliage. This often multi-stemmed small tree is native to the eastern United States and extreme southern Canada. The green leaves are attractive and glossy. Butterflies enjoy the clusters of white flowers that adorn the tree in late spring and will give rise to fruits that develop from green and yellow to pink, finally to blue and black. It attracts a wide array of bird wildlife.

(Chitalpa)

An unlikely hybrid between a tree native to the Southeast United States (Catalpa bignonioides) and a shrub native to the deserts of western North America (Chilopsis linearis), this remarkably tough small tree is grown for its showy summer-long display of sumptuous trumpet-shaped flowers. Oddly enough, the first X Chitalpa hybrids were bred in 1964 in Uzbekistan and brought to the United States in 1977 by renowned horticulturist Robert Hebb of the New York Botanic Garden.

The lightly cascading branches of this small multi-stemmed tree become laden with many lavender-throated white flowers throughout the growing season.

(Bluestem Yucca, Yucca Cane)

This is one big beautiful yucca! The tree-like bluestem yucca is a fast-growing tropical evergreen. A tall, multi-trunked plant, it has a coarse, architectural appeal that makes it a standout for western, frost-free gardens. This native of Mexico and Central America is also tough, drought tolerant and easy to grow if given the right growing conditions.

Plants are evergreen and bear dense clusters of coarse, stiff, lance-shaped leaves that whorl around upright stems. The thick brown trunk-like...

(Beaked Yucca)

A spiky urchin-like sphere of bayonet-shaped evergreen leaves tops the shaggy trunk of this dramatic and coveted tree-like yucca. Native to northern Mexico and western Texas, it bears a bristling globe of hundreds of long, narrow, blue-green leaves on a compact, typically head-high trunk. The leaves are twisted, adding further ornamental interest. The trunk is coated with the remains of old leaves, giving it a furry look. Mature plants produce showy spikes of white flowers in spring. The blooms attract...

(Torry's Yucca)

Often described as unkempt, this tall, gangly yucca more than makes up for its dubious looks with a cast iron constitution. This is a border dweller, found in west Texas, southeastern New Mexico and northern Mexico, all of which share an equally mild climate. This makes it more frost tender and thirsty in summer than some of its close kin from further north. Plants will grow in drier areas but need supplemental irrigation in summer provided soils are very well drained.

(Schott's Yucca)

A tree-like yucca with a spherical head of bayonet-shaped evergreen leaves atop a short trunk, this mountain-dweller from the Southwest United States and northern Mexico is tailor made for high, dry gardens. Wider and sparser than those of the somewhat similar Yucca rostrata, the blue-green leaves are arrayed in a spiky globe at the apex of the compact brown trunk. The trunk is often covered with the remains of old leaves. Lax spikes of white flowers rise above the leaves in late spring...

(Japanese Zelkova)

Casting dense shade with its spreading, vase-shaped canopy, Japanese zelkova has handsome bark and pleasing dark glossy green foliage that turns bronzy orange or burgundy in autumn. A medium to tall, deciduous tree from eastern Asia, it is often suggested and used as a disease-resistant substitute for the closely related American elm. The small oval leaves are toothed with a pointed tip. The smooth, dull grayish tan bark eventually exfoliates to reveal underlying rusty-orange patches. The inconspicuous...
