White Water’ Variegated Weeping Redbud

A unique weeping habit with pure white, new foliage. The attractive dark rose-purple blooms are followed by the striking white and variegated leaves. The heart-shaped leaves ultimately turn to green as the growing season progresses. Use as a unique specimen, and it’s perfect in smaller landscapes.

‘Alley Cat’ Variegated Redbud

Found growing wild in an alley, the ‘Alley Cat’ Variegated Eastern Redbud Tree has turned out to be a sweet and adorable charmer when brought into the garden and shown a little love. Featuring lavender-pink flowers that hug the branches in spring and pretty heart-shaped leaves splashed with white variegation, this handsome ornamental tree will steal your heart!

‘Carolina Sweetheart’ Red Leafed Weeping Red Bud TM

There is nothing else on the planet quite like this tree! First it has amazing pink flowers in the early spring. Then the new leaves emerge purpley pinky, but over time, gain various shades of white, green, and wait for it…hot pink! ‘Carolina Sweetheart’ makes Coleus look drab in comparison. Eventually, the leaves turn green in summer but brilliant yellow fall color!

‘Appalachian Spring’ Dogwood

This prolific spring bloomer has pretty rounded white bracts that don’t overlap; a small upright tree with layered branches and full, rounded form; abundant red fruit in late summer and great red fall color; shows anthracnose resistance.

‘Rosie Teacup’ Dogwood TM

This is the brightest pink blooming dogwood we know! Known for its compact, dense heads of floral bracts, ‘Rosy Teacup’ blooms range from a dark pink through to a red rose color with a burnt magenta along their margins.  Not only are they larger than typical dogwood flowers, there are quite simply, many more of them than on other Dogwoods.  To add to the visual splendor, the blooms overlap each other, creating a dramatic display varying pink hue

‘Elmwood’ Ginko

This slow-growing narrow Ginkgo was found as a witch’s broom. Its narrow form and slow growth rate make it a very nice cultivar. And wait til you see the fall color!

‘Green Mile’ Magnolia virginiana TM     

‘Green Mile’ Sweetbay has a distinctive vertical tendency that works well as a single stem tree. The dark green, lustrous foliage is superior to the species throughout the growing season and is mostly evergreen. ‘Green Mile’ should prove useful in settings where a slightly more formal look is preferred.

‘Cherokee Brave’ Dogwood

Deservedly one of the most popular American Dogwoods, Cherokee Brave offers a bit of extra beauty for every season. Large
red blooms, spring and fall foliage changes, and ornamental berries all contribute to its popularity as an understory or specimen tree in the
landscape.The foliage opens with burgundy and maroon tones overlaying the green. By summer it is entirely green and very dense, but it
turns brilliant maroon again in autumn, remaining for weeks before dropping for winter. Very showy!

‘Cherokee Princess’ Dogwood

‘Cherokee Princess’ is a cultivar that is noted for its consistently early and heavy bloom of flowers with large white bracts. Good rust-red fall color. Originally introduced in 1959-60 as C. florida ‘Sno-White’.

‘Appalachian Joy’ Dogwood

White flowering dogwood with extra bracts on each inflorescence. This and Appalachian Snow appear to have excellent powdery mildew resistance.


‘Wolfeye’s’ Variegated Kousa Dogwood

Eye-catching gray-green leaves are accented with ivory along wavy margins, making this dogwood a beautiful specimen. Large, long lasting, star shaped white flowers bloom in late May-early June. Autumn leaves fade into a pink-red hue, and its star-like flowers are followed by bright-red berries. Wolf Eyes grows slowly to 10-15 ft. tall and wide, and prefers partial shade. A show-stopping addition to any shade garden, as their creamy white margins seem to glow in a shady area.


‘Hearts of Gold’ Yellow Leafed Redbud

‘Hearts of Gold’ is a new cultivar discovered by former JC Raulston Arboretum employee Jon Roethling in someone’s yard in North Carolina! This outstanding and unique form of our eastern redbud is distinguished by its striking, intense golden-yellow spring foliage that gradually changes to chartreuses as the summer advances. The light purple flowers are plentiful in each cluster. The actively growing shoot tips take on an orange-red tone, making a distinct contrast to the older, chartreuse-colored leaves. ‘Hearts of Gold’ will express its gold color more effectively in full sun.
