Bailey Lackey, Office Support

Prairifire Flowering Crab 

Malus ‘Prairifire’

A highly regarded accent tree smothered in rich red flowers in spring and persistent small purple fruit in fall, upright habit of growth; the definitive ornamental feature tree for the home landscape, needs well-drained soil and full sun


Wedding Party® Dark and Handsome Hellebore 

Helleborus ‘Dark and Handsome’

This attractive variety produces vigorous mounds of thick evergreen leaves; flower stalks, held occasionally above the foliage bear showy black to black-purple flowers with yellow-green centers; an outstanding selection for shade gardens


Amber Ghost Japanese Maple

Acer palmatum ‘Amber Ghost’

The lovely leaves of this compact variety emerge bright pink, changing to pink-orange, soft amber for summer, then turning fiery scarlet-orange in fall, interesting branching habit; an ideal selection for gardens or containers; protect from afternoon sun


Black Dragon Japanese Cedar 

Cryptomeria japonica ‘Black Dragon’

A popular loosely pyramid-shaped evergreen with very deep green foliage, slow-growing and graceful; an excellent choice for an accent with a distinctively Asian feel in the home landscape


Mountain Fire Japanese Pieris 

Pieris japonica ‘Mountain Fire’

A popular ornamental broadleaf evergreen shrub with delicate and showy chains of small white bell-shaped flowers and fiery red emerging foliage, extremely colorful in spring; performs best in moist, organic and acidic soils
