Seasonal Plants

Acer Garden is located in the Northeast United States, and our weather is always changing. Every season brings in new and exciting temporary plants and materials, specific to the time of year. It is currently winter, and we are highlighting our poinsettias, amaryllis, greens and fresh cut Christmas trees.



These delightful bulbs come in an array of colors, from white to pink, and even red stripes! Our top grade bulbs are sold individually or pre-potted for easy enjoyment. Amaryllis make it feel like spring even in these cold, dark months, and often continue to bloom through the winter.

Our cutting edge, Acer grown poinsettias are started in late summer in our annual growing houses, and carefully cared for to ensure maximum holiday impact.


A few of our new varieties this season include: 'Christmas Day Red' , 'Christmas Feeling Red Cinnamon', 'Snowy White', 'Alaska' (New for 2020), 'Polly's Pink', 'Picasso' (4.5" pot).

Available in 4.5" pots: 'Premium Ice Crystal', 'Premium Polar', 'Premium Red', 'Tapestry'

Available in 6.5" pots: 'Princettia Hot Pink', 'Princettia Pure White', 'Christmas Beauty Princess', 'Christmas Beauty Red', 'Burgundy', 'Prestige Red', 'Ice Punch', 'Polar Bear', "Winter Rose', "Red Glitter' 

Available in 10" pots: 'Burgundy', 'Polar Bear', and 'Prestige Red'


Bring a touch of spring indoors with our easy to care for paperwhite bulbs. Planted in stone or glass, simply add water to your container, and watch your flowers grow. Small white, fragrant daffodil flowers bloom abundantly for weeks and weeks.


Now is the time to plan for those first splashes of color which will be so welcome after whatever winter throws at us this year! Tuck-In-Bulbs are small, and easy to plant.  Tuck them into rock gardens, pop them under trees or scatter them at the edge of the lawn. All these bulbs are available at Acer Gardens. You can have blooms from late March to early May! Garlic is also available.


Hardy and Tender Succulents are available at the nursery in 2" pots, 4.5" pots, and 6" hanging baskets.  Most succulents enjoy a sunny spot during the summer and can handle indirect light during the winter.  Water minimally and enjoy your new plants this season!
