Featured Trees & Shrubs

Acer Gardens grows too many varieties of trees & shrubs to list on our website! Here a few notable varieties for the 2019 season. If you are looking for a specific cultivar or species, please give us a call for availability. Our stock is always changing.

Hydrangea 'Lavalamp Flare'

'Lavalamp Flare' is a marvel for a H. paniculata, and just like a lava lamp, it will leave you mesmerized. Large white summer blooms slowly age to a bright red-pink, and make great cut or dried flowers. This compact shrub stays 3' x 3', making it perfect for a smaller garden space or pop of color. Hydrangea paniculata prefer full sun.

Acer palmatum 'Sango Kaku'

'Sango Kaku' is one of our favorite Japanese maples for multi-season interest. Brilliant coral-red bark intensifies through the season, and the fine foliage turns a brilliant gold in fall. A medium-sized deciduous tree, reaching 15-25 ft., it is best in partial sun.  Hardy in zones 5-8.

Callicarpa 'Pearl Glam'

'Pearl Glam' Beautyberry is very appropriately named for a small shrub. White summer flowers open to tiny abundant, purple pearl berries that persist into the winter.   The dark purple foliage is a nice contrast in the garden. This deciduous shrub reaches 4-5' tall and is hardy in zones 5-8. Prefers full sun.

Lonicera 'Scentsation'

Voted the '2016 Climbing Plant Of The Year', Lonicera 'Scentsation' has it all. Incredibly fragrant, yellow and white flowers in the summer, red berries in the fall, strong climbing stems and neat foliage. Wonderful when trained up a trellis or arbor; hardy for zone 4-9.

Rosa floribunda 'Summer Romance'

'Summer Romance' is an old-fashioned beauty, with a heavy fragrance of apples, licorice and florals. Deep pink, full flowers grow in heavy clusters on this 4' tall shrub with glossy green, very disease resistant foliage.

Syringa 'Morton China Snow'

Hardy and showy, Syringa pekinensis 'Morton China Snow' is a medium sized spring flowering tree with exfoliating, amber colored bark. Pollinators love the fragrant white lilac flowers, and the heart shaped foliage develops a yellow fall color. 20-30' tall by 15-20' wide; prefers full sun. Hardy for zones 5-9.
