Ornamental Plum Thundercloud - This showy springtime bloomer offers beautiful blooms as a beacon for spring. A moderate grower this tree will grow to be about 20 ft tall and wide with coppery-purple foliage backing pale pink to white blooms. Plant as a single specimen tree or in small clusters amidst rich green landscapes. Try a matched pair to flank gateways and driveway entries or in an orchard-like row to screen neighboring views. This is one of the best plants to create the American country-garden look because it mimics the aesthetic of a farm orchard.
Ornamental Cherry Snow Fountain - Graceful, weeping branches are covered with showy, snow-white flowers early in the season. Ideal for any landscape, this tree is especially suited for smaller spaces. The Snow Fountain Cherry is the iconic tree of the Japanese tea garden. Plant in matched pairs to highlight a special gateway or frame a work of garden art. Particularly charming in small groves, which add light and diversity to woodland settings.
Forsythia - The calling card of spring, the vibrant yellow of these blooms will let you know that spring is on its way. The arching branch features lightly bell-shaped blooms that range from butter yellow to gold. This low maintenance and fast growing shrub is deer resistance.
Ann Magnolia - This sweet little magnolia offers exquisite, 3 to 4 inch blooms with reddish purple outside and white inside. The blooms appear before the foliage buds out making them stand out in the landscape. Slow growing this smaller sized tree will reach about 10-15 feet tall and 12 feet wide. Perfect as a centerpiece of a flower bed or near a patio or terrace.
Double Take Orange Storm Quince - With big, coral colored, double flowers this shrub provides a stunning early spring flower display. Drought tolerant once established, it may be pruned to shape after it blooms. Orange Storm Double Take Quince is easy to care for and easy to love.

Dogwood - Our state tree, the Dogwood boasts beautiful four-point flowers or bracts that begin to spread open in spring with a creamy, yellow-green colored flower.
