This week we are highlighting our columnar varieties. For many, an upright tree may not be an obvious first choice but don't overlook their benefits.
Columnar trees are the exclamation points in the landscape, adding drama and moving the eye upwards. They can be used to line driveways or planted along edges of property to delineate space, and then can serve as a backdrop for your shrubs and perennials. Practically speaking, upright trees will submit the presence of a large tree without actually taking up large amounts of horizontal space. Use in side yards, between buildings or in hell strips.
Currently we have 2 varieties:
'Crimson Pointe' Plum
'Crimson Pointe' Plum is an ornamental plum with dark burgundy-red leaves all season long. In early spring, branches are densely coated with pinkish-white, sweetly scented blooms. It has a manageable size of 20' tall by 10' wide when fully grown.
