Buttercup Winterhazel - 2 quart
Buttercup Winterhazel - 2 quart

$19.95
Corylopsis pauciflora is the smallest of the Corylopsis species, and therefore perhaps the easiest to use in most gardens. It reaches 5 or 6’ and is easily as wide, and brings butter-yellow dangling flowers to the late winter garden before the new leaves emerge. Whether the blooms are fragrant is debatable, some say yes, some say no - my nose says no. Excellent in sun or part shade; it works well in woodland sites. Deciduous, zones 6-8.

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

$19.95
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).

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

$25.95
These are seedlings of 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 (not too hot and dry). Happiest in bright shade, I think; no all-day direct summer sun here (GA). Height to 20 feet and almost as wide. Zone information in the literature suggest 7(b) - 9.

Golden Bridalwreath - gallon
Golden Bridalwreath - gallon

$19.95
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.

Graham Thomas Rose - trade gallon
Graham Thomas Rose - trade gallon

$19.95
We don’t grow many roses, only two or three, because we haven’t the patience to spray and prune and spray and prune and spray, as many roses require in order to perform in the garden. But we consider Rosa ’Graham Thomas’ to be a winner. Blooms are double, of pure yellow and very fragrant. It’s generally classified as an English shrub rose, and it gets tall, 8 to 9 feet, so plan ahead. Zones 5 - 9. Correct cultivar name is Rosa ’Ausmas’ I assume because it was bred by David Austin and named for Graham Stuart Thomas, a duly famous English plantsman. Makes sense to me. Unlike most current patented cultivar names, say ’Abetwo’ ("Incrediball") or ’NCHA1’ ("Invincibelle Spirit"). It has to do with "branding." In Arizona where I partially grew up, branding was for cattle so you could identify them if they strayed. But plants don’t graze and wander so . . .

Fothergilla gardenii ’Jane Platt’ is a dwarf form of the native witch-alder with a drooping habit, to a height of perhaps 3 feet.

The flowers are creamy-white, honey-scented, in spring before the foliage appears. Deciduous. Zones 5 - 8.

Japanese Maple - 1 gallon
Japanese Maple - 1 gallon

$18.95
These are Acer palmatum seedlings from one of many 15’ tall green-leaf Japanese maples in our gardens. As seedlings they will exhibit genetic diversity, although I expect most will be upright-growing with green foliage turning orange-to-red in autumn like the mama tree. Our experience with Acer palmatum is that once established it is a tough survivor even through periods of neglect. For example, we planted 3 seedlings across the creek some 20 years ago and watered them in with a 5 gallon bucket of creek water. We never watered or fertilized them again. They all survive. Zones 6 - 8.

’Beni Kin Mokosei’ osmanthus is a fragrant selection of Osmanthus fragrans var. aurantiacus that nurseryman Ted Stephens brought back from Japan. It is a darker orange-red form of the large-growing evergreen shrub that perfumes the garden in the fall and winter in Zones 7 - 10. You would be wise to have it in your garden if space allows. Height to 15 feet, usually multi-stemmed. Sun or or bright shade; deer don’t browse. We only have a few. If we’re sold out, go to the source Nurseries Caroliniana.

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.

Sapphireberry - 2 quart
Sapphireberry - 2 quart

$22.95
Symplocos paniculata is a rare shrub or small tree that has ornamental value spring and fall. Size is 10 to 20 feet tall, often wider than tall. Fragrant white flowers are borne in mid-spring in great profusion. They are followed in autumn by ultramarine or bright turquoise-blue fruit. Excellent for bird habitat. Our plants are seedlings off a dozen mature plants here at the nursery. Zones 4 - 8.
Sapphireberry is rarely available from from even specialist nurseries, because while it is claimed to be easy to root from softwood cuttings, it’s mostly impossible to keep the newly rooted plants alive through the following winter. We never had luck even getting the softwood cuttings to root. And when we tried to grow the plant from seed we also failed when we transplanted the new seedlings (which take 2 years to emerge). So now we let nature do its magic and dig the sprouted seedlings found throughout the nursery. (See photo.) Birds have spread the seed all about. It’s not a problem or invasive; may even be our retirement.
I had never seen the native species, Symplocos tinctoria, until I toured the lowland along the Chattahoochee River nearby the nursery after Chattahoochee Hills (our city) obtained a new park property recently. Plan to take cuttings (does it root??) after it blooms.
