Winter Conifers

Even though it is Autumn, it's time to purchase your winter conifers for your landscape and containers. You will want to get those varieties that will not only do great for the winter but can tolerate the sizzling heat of our summers. One such tough guy is the Alberta spruce. This cone-shape beauty prefers lots of morning sunshine but light shade in the afternoon. Wonderful in pots especially if you plant around it's base with white pansies and white ornamental cabbage for a winter look.But you can't forget about the evergreen bird Nest Spruce, the Grey Procumbens Juniper, the Grey Owl Juniper (love this shrub), and the Hinoki Cypress. Shop early for these babies before they are gone....
