Athens Sweetshrub - trade gallon
Athens Sweetshrub - trade gallon

$20.95
Calycanthus floridus ’Athens’ (a/k/a ’Katherine’ for Dr. Michael Dirr’s oldest daughter) was first given widespread availability by Cedar Lane Farms in Madison, GA thanks to owner, Jane Symmes and was one of the first plants we acquired (see SKU number) in 1989 when we started our nursery. The clone is unique in the yellow flower color. To some degree it is also unique due to its intense, fruity fragrance since many "sweetshrubs" have no fragrance at all. It’s a plant native to the USA if that matters to you, and its perfume is most noticeable in the evenings. Height to 8 feet and spreading much wider where space allows. Our current crop is actually from root cuttings dug a year ago in an attempt to corral the mama plant. No. But a bit of discipline is good for most native plants and many others. Zones 5 - 9.

Daphniphyllum humile - 1/2 gallon
Daphniphyllum humile - 1/2 gallon

$17.95
Haystack-shaped evergreen shrub or small tree. These are seedlings raised from D. humile which is claimed by some to be a different (and shorter) species than D. macropodum. However, some references consider them the same. It makes an excellent dense, glossy-leafed mound to obscure whatever ails your garden. Size is the main question. If D. humile is truly low-growing or dwarf then these should be 6-8 feet tall and wide, as the mother plant is. If however, D. humile is synonymous with D. macropodum then Katie bar the Door, as our garden plants tagged as that species are already 25 tall. Jack and the Beanstalk? So it’s guesswork. Zones 7 - 9 (have survived -1 degrees here).

Enkianthus Rubens - 1 quart
Enkianthus Rubens - 1 quart

$25.95
Enkianthus cernuus f. rubens is the most striking member of this genus. Slow growing, this shrub is a show-stopper when in bloom in late spring for those who notice plants closely. It does not scream like a billboard; it’s more like a lover’s whisper. The deep-red, fringed, bell-shaped flowers dangle below the thin stems. In autumn the foliage turns a reddish-purple. It is deciduous and needs good drainage and acidic soil. And the patience of a true gardener. Height to 5 feet. Zones 5 - 7.

Evergreen Flowering Dogwood - trade gallon
Evergreen Flowering Dogwood - trade gallon

$23.95
These are seedlings grown from Cornus elliptica, a Chinese evergreen dogwood that has performed wonderfully in the gardens here at Wilkerson Mill. Blooms in June for up to a month if the weather is kind. Happiest in bright shade, I think, no long-lasting direct summer sun here (GA). Height to 20 feet and almost as wide. Zone information in the texts suggest 7(b) - 9.

Golden Bridalwreath - trade gallon
Golden Bridalwreath - trade gallon

$17.95
In earliest spring the graceful arching branches of the 4 foot Spiraea thunbergii ’Ogon’ are clothed in small white blooms which dance unfazed by late frosts. The sparkling chartreuse foliage of spring and summer turns amber in the fall -- an eye-catching bright spot in the garden. Sun or perhaps even better in lightest shade. Deciduous. Zones 4 - 8.

Jane Platt Dwarf Fothergilla - 3 qt.

$19.95
Fothergilla gardenii ’Jane Platt’ is a dwarf form of the native witch-alder with a drooping habit, to a height of perhaps 3 feet. This is a true "gardenii" species unlike the more commonly sold selection ’Mt. Airy’. ’Jane Platt’ will grow in either sun or shade but will have better fall color in more sun. The flowers are creamy-white, honey-scented, in spring before the foliage appears. Deciduous. Zones 5 - 8.

Kalopanax septemlobus - trade gallon
Kalopanax septemlobus - trade gallon

$29.95
Castor-aralia is a little-used and little-known deciduous shade tree that over time becomes a magnificent specimen where space allows. The primary objection to this beauty is the sharp, numerous trunk thorns or "prickles" that make it not user-friendly at a young age. The ultimate attraction when it gains some age is the large green foliage creating a tropical-like canopy on a tree that can reach 50’ or more. I first saw it in full maturity at Mount Auburn Cemetery outside Boston during an International Plant Propagators Society tour some 20+ years ago. Had to grow it. Fall color in Georgia has been a consistent butter yellow. Bees love the summer flowers. Zones 4 - 7.

Magnolia x loebneri ’Merrill’

A very hardy deciduous magnolia becoming a small tree (30’) with fragrant, white blooms in early spring. Our plantings include 3 Loebner Magnolias: ’Ballerina’, ’Leonard Messel’, and ’Merrill’. All are worthy of inclusion in your garden if you have room. Every season I hope to root cuttings of them. I have reasonable success. This season we have a few ’Merrill’. Zones 4 - 7 (8).

Osakazuki Japanese Maple - 10 gallon On-Site Pickup ONLY
Osakazuki Japanese Maple - 10 gallon On-Site Pickup ONLY

$399.99
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.

Philippine Deutzia - trade gallon

$22.95
Large, shrub with arching canes to 10 feet with a profusion of white flowers in drooping panicles or racemes in May (GA). The flowers are slightly fragrant to a keen nose. This was Sir Harold Hillier’s favorite deutzia according plant explorer Roy Lancaster and for a week or two in mid-spring it stuns. Best subjected to an annual pruning of a third of the oldest canes to the ground after flowering. Flowers best in full sun or light shade. Zones 7 - 9.
