20% off trees and shrubs clearance sale!

 Who needs flowers if you can enjoy the brilliant fall foliage that only shrubs and trees can provide.

Fall will be arriving soon, and we've put together a sale to accommodate your need to add some color to your garden.

Liriodendron tulipifera, Stewartia pseudocamelia and Daphne x Burkwoodii 'Silveredge'

Here at Arrowhead we're trying to downsize and refocus on doing what we do best: alpines. To that end, we're doing a massive sale on our trees and shrubs to clear out the stock. Order now for trees and shrubs shipped through November, and take 20% off. You can also stop by the nursery in person and still receive our trees and shrubs discount. And if there is something in our catalog you've been wanting and putting off buying, now is the time, as once they're gone, they're not coming back.

 For example, you won't want to miss Weigela subsessilis'Canary' which is worth growing for the very unusual soft yellow flowers, but is also the most vigorous, winter hardy Weigela I know, blooming its head off after even the harshest winters.

Or Abelia mosanensis, with abundant fragrant pink tubular flowers, white on the inside giving a unique two tone effect in spring. Fall color is an excellent orange red which tends to develop late. The flowers in midsummer hold the crown as the most popular shrub in the nursery with butterflies of all types.A deciduous Korean species, it is considerably hardier than the evergreen species.

Or end your season with the late summer glory of Heptocodium miconoides 

A cool new plant introduced from China in 1980, although Wilson found it back in 1907. Ornamental peeling Crepe Myrtle-like bark, fragrant white flowers in late summer in six flowered whorls terminated by a single flower (hence Heptocodium) followed by showy cherry red calyces surrounding the fruits, giving the impression of still being in flower in autumn when the leaves turn purple.  
Despite what Dirr says it seems to thrive in full sun, and struggles in the shade at least in the north.
