Emmett’s Pumpkin Fullmoon Maple

Acer japonicum ‘Emmett’s Pumpkin’

A stunning and shapely tree that is the ideal size for the home landscape, interesting in all seasons; red foliage in spring that mixes with green into the summer, and a glorious orange display in fall


Canaan Fir

Abies balsamea ‘var. phanerolepis’

A delicate spire-like evergreen producing soft dark green needles, very upright and open; will grow in areas not well suited to other firs; resistant to spring frost injury
