> Upright Boxwood - 2 gallon
This is a good, evergreen accent plant adaptable to sun or shade but not heavy, sodden soils. Like all boxwood, Buxus sempervirens ’Fastigiata’ prefers limestone soils (more akaline) rather than strongly acidic. This form is broader at the base than the more narrow form ’Graham Blandy’, q.v., and grows slowly to a height of 8 feet. This species is one of the preferred plants for those who torture them into topiary which proves you can prune them into submission -- just don’t do it late in the summer in a cold climate or the new growth won’t have time to harden off. Zone 6 - 8.
> Osakazuki Japanese Maple - 10 gallon On-Site Pickup ONLY
A well known selection of Japanese Maple that is a vigorous grower into a tree of perhaps 20 feet, Acer palmatum Osakazuki is green throughout the season until fall when it turns a brilliant crimson. Reputed to not scorch in sun, we have found it is happiest in the South in bright but filtered light. Like most Japanese maples, it is quite tough once established. These are grafted plants. They are available only at the nursery. They are far too large to ship at 12 years of age. Deciduous. Zones 6 - 8.
