What types of nursery plants are you looking for?

Evergreen trees and shrubs

An evergreen is any plant that retains its foliage year-round. Therefore, evergreens provide winter interest when landscapes in Michigan can look bare. And they can create a privacy fence between neighbors or even hide unsightly places in your yard. For example, arborvitae, junipers, spruce, and yews.

Broadleaf evergreens

These trees and shrubs also retain their foliage year-round but have broad flat leaves as opposed to the needle-like foliage of conifers. Broadleaf evergreens make a great backdrop to other plants, and many flower in season. For example, boxwood, holly, rhododendron, and euonymus.

Fruit trees

West Michigan has a great climate for growing fruit trees. Growing your own fruit is healthy for you and the environment, and is a wonderful family learning opportunity. See our blog on how to Grow your own fruit

Small fruit

Grow your own blueberries, grapes, or raspberries and enjoy the freshest fruit possible! Varieties are available for small spaces and even containers.  See Growing your own small fruit

Shade trees

Shade trees can cool your home, reduce energy usage, and provide a great space to relax and enjoy your yard. Choose varieties according to mature size, canopy density, growth habit and soil conditions.

Specialty Trees

Otherwise known as specimen plants, these nursery plants create interest and provide a focal point in your landscape. With unusual form, texture, or color, these plants stand out.  For example, Japanese maples, weeping forms of evergreen or deciduous trees, or flowering trees.

Flowering Shrubs

Flowering shrubs are one of the easiest ways to reinvigorate your landscape. Many are fast growing, deer resistant, and only need yearly pruning to maintain their beauty. For example,  hydrangeas, lilacs, rose of Sharon, or dogwood.

Roses

Landscaping with roses can range from traditional hybrid tea varieties with beauty and fragrant blooms, to modern shrub roses that bloom longer and require little maintenance.

Vines

Vines can provide a vertical element in your yard with attractive foliage and showy flowers. They can be trained to grow up trellises or fences and can create privacy. Examples include clematis, honeysuckle, wisteria, or climbing hydrangea.
