Here are a few of the new trees to arrive:
Liquidamber styraciflua ‘ Worplesdon Sweetgum’
This is a broadly conical, deciduous tree. Star-shaped leaves are reminiscent of some maples. They have 5-7 narrow lobes and appear either alternate or palmate and medium green and glossy, turning to striking apricot-oranges. Leaves are followed by mace-like fruit clusters. Plant in full sun for best fall colors.
Robinia pseudoacacia ‘Lace Lady’
This black locust cultivar is a deciduous, multi-stemmed shrub or small tree which is perhaps most noted for its shrubby growth habit, zigzag branching (more pronounced on new growth) and curling of some of the mature leaflets. It can be expected to grow to 10-18′ tall with a spread of 12-15′ over 30 years.
Cedrus atlantica ‘Glauca’
A distinctive evergreen with silvery blue to bluish-green needles. Pyramidal in its youth, it becomes massive with horizontal, spreading branches and is quite a sight. The Atlas Cedar lives long and requires a lot of space to develop freely. 2″-3′ male cones form on lower part of tree, with larger purple female cones developing on top branches.
Ross Latham, founder of Big Trees Inc., stated: “Traditionally, the best time to plant trees is either prior to late Spring, after the coldest portion of these Winter months we’re in now, or later in the year when Fall comes around. With our Seattle weather, we can plant trees anytime with the use of drip-type irrigation. We’ll be letting everyone know our arrivals as we get closer to that time and as our seasonal Spring Sale gets into full swing.”
Ross Latham is the owner of Big Trees Inc. located in Snohomish, WA, in the Seattle area. The company is one of the largest tree nurseries in the Seattle area with over 120,000 trees available in over 300 varieties.
