Trees & Shrubs
Before you begin shopping around for flowers, select your trees and shrubs! Selecting trees and shrubs give your garden or backyard structure. Consider how your trees and shrubs will develop through the seasons!
The Dogwood Tree – A Dogwood Tree will produce beautiful blooms during springtime, and have a great compact shape! The leaves turn an eye-catching reddish purple during fall time.
The Shadblow/Shad/Serviceberry Tree – Another beautiful flowering tree, the Shadblow tree is ideal for a partly-shady area of your yard. This tree yields apple-like early spring flowers, June fruit and a pinstripe bark.
The Spicebush – If you are looking to add a colorful understory shrub, consider adding a Spicebush (or two, or three . . .) to your Westchester garden!
Bright & Beautiful Perennials
Perennials return to your garden year after year, when cared for properly!
Delphinium – Hummingbirds love these bright perennials, and so will you! Delphiniums require rich soil and cool summers.
Little Bluestem – This native prairie grass has grey-green foliage which turns bold shades of purple, red and orange in fall. Plant this in full-sun, and it will reach heights of 2-3 feet tall, and a foot high.
