Great plants for color from fall through winter

We have an excellent selection of hardy trees and shrubs, including natives, that are sure to brighten your fall and winter landscapes. Brilliant red berries and fruit on bare stems are provided by a variety of hollies from the Possumhaws to the Parsley Hawthorn. For bright yellow berries be sure to check out Anna's Choice Yaupon and Finch's Gold Possumhaw Hollies. Even the foliage of Rose Creek and Canyon Creek Abelias intensify into reds, bronzes, and coppers for fall and winter. Few plants show off in the fall like the Japanense Maples producing colors that range from red, orange, yellow, and into purple, even here in the South. We also have a great selection of new Sasanqua Camellias from the breeding work of Green's Nurseries and they steal the show in fall and winter when it comes to evergreens.

Fall and winter are the optimum times to plant fully cold hardy trees, shrubs, vines, and perennials. This gives the root systems ample time to get established before spring growth begins and well before the stress of summer arrives.
