Crataegus virdis 'Winter King'

Common Name: Winter King Hawthorn

The show begins with very showy white flowers early to mid-May. The flowers are fragrant, some say malodorous, but I have found few who find the fragrance that offensive. Summer foliage is dark green to gray-green with a leathery texture

Crataegus x mordenensis 'Toba'

Common Name: Toba Hawthorn

The rough gray bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape, often developing a uniquely twisted trunk. This tree does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution.

Cypripedium parviflorum 'var. pubescens'

Common Name: Giant Yellow Hardy Lady Slipper

Cypripediums should be planted on compost-amended soil where the roots can be spread out horizontally on top of the soil, then covered in compost since the roots do not grow into the soil like most plants. Our flowering-sized plants of Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens are nursery-propagated from seed.

Cypripedium reginae

Common Name: Showy Lady Slipper

The dorsal sepal, petals, and synsepal are absolutely pure white, and I do mean pure white. The lip has a white base color and is suffused with purple-pink – sometimes as a light blush, sometimes so thick that it seems entirely deep purple, but often this flushing is in parallel lines creating an alternating purple and white striped pattern. The staminode as well is pure white and typically has yellow blushing on its lower half accompanied by purple-pink blotches and spots. Pure alba forms exist as well. Flowering commences in mid June and can extend into July in the far north of its range.
