Blue Atlas Cedar

Common name: Blue Atlas Cedar
Botanical name: Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca'

As a large, slow-growing conifer, Blue Atlas Cedar requires ample room for growth. It has a broad, pyramidal form and is an eye-catching specimen for a large landscape. It's needles are 1 inch long, and are a beautiful shade of silvery blue. In order to develop its best color, the tree needs to be exposed to full sun. It can reach up to 40 to 60 feet tall and up to 30 feet wide. There is also a weeping form, Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca Pendula.' Cedars have lovely cones, emerging bluish when young and aging a reddish brown.

Compact Dwarf Boxwood

Common name: Compact Dwarf Boxwood
Botanical name: Buxus microphylla 'Compacta'

This is a very compact boxwood, growing slowing to 1 foot tall but eventually spreading as wide as 4 feet. though it is evergreen, the dark green foliage takes on a bronze hue in the winter months. Use to edge a perennial, shrub, or foundation border, to line a walk, or as an evergreen accent in the perennial garden. Its generally uniform growth habit means little maintanance is required to keep it tidy.

Bloodgood Japanese Maple

Common name: Bloodgood Japanese Maple
Botanical name: Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'

Bloodgood Japanese maple is a lovely, upright to rounded small tree, well suited to patios and courtyards. It has red to bronze-red foliage, becoming more bronzy with summer heat. Fall color is brilliant red. New wood is very dark, turning a reddish brown as it ages. Grows 15 to 18 feet tall and wide, though it will do so slowly.
