Tree & Planting Information
If you buy a tree online between the months of December and March, the tree you receive may not be as pretty as you might have expected. Have no fear! Your tree may look like it isn’t healthy, but don’t worry, it’s just dormant for the winter.
When Autumn arrives and the days are shorter, deciduous trees, plants, and shrubs decrease chlorophyll pigment production. This will result in the leaves changing colors. The leaves are also no longer producing food to grow and are showing signs of shutting down, which leads to discoloration, leaf curling, and leaf spot.
In this series of posts, we'll be highlighting the best-looking plants on our nursery each week. We'll provide you with information about each plant and a nice picture of it, too. This week, we'll be taking a look at the Wonderful Pomegranate and the Bald Cypress.
While the Cypress Leyland is a truly American tree, its roots go back to 19th century Great Britain. This evergreen is a hybrid of the Monterey Cypress and the Nootka Cypress.
