Dome-Grown_300dpi_small

Bluemel's offers a nice selection of premium, high-quality nursery stock.  This is a new addition to our retail department, so varieties will be added as this area grows.  We've consulted with our Landscape Division and chose to offer a mix of unique as well as popluar varieties.

Barberry - ‘Crimson Pygmy’

Full sun, 18” tall x 2-3’ wide

Slow growing, compact form of red leaved Barberry. It's an excellent choice for a sunny foundation planting or great as a low hedge in the landscape. It's known for its deep, dark red leaves that turn orange-red come fall.

 

Boxwood - ‘Green Velvet’

Full sun to full shade, 2-3’ tall x 3’wide

An excellent, broad-leaf evergreen shrub. It is a rather slow-growing boxwood, with a low-rounded form, but it retains its good green color all winter long. This plant works great for hedges or foundation planting in protected sites. This is by far the best plant available for low hedges.

 

Juniper - ‘Blue Chip

Full sun, 1’ tall x 6-8’ wide

Superior low evergreen shrub displaying silver-blue foliage on a widely spreading habit. The foliage retains its rich color all year long. A durable, tough groundcover for edging driveways. Plant on slopes or along retaining walls for erosion control. Deer resistant.

Euonymus (Dwarf Burning Bush) - ‘Fire Ball Select’

Full sun to full shade, 5-7’ tall x 5-7’ wide

A more compact and smaller version of the regular size burning bush. Don't mistake the smaller size to have less of the gorgeous red fall color, it still packs a lot of punch!

Lilac - ‘Bloomerang Dark Purple’

Full sun, 5-6’ tall x 5-6’ wide
