    Interesting and unique plants at local nursery

    Well, today I treated myself to $325 more trees/plants at the local nursery. Happy Mother's Day to me. I found some very interesting plants, and my eyes were opened about the things that will really grow here.

    I went there because they just opened for the season about two weeks ago and I hadnt had the chance to go in yet. Now I know why I was trying to delay the inevitable, I just didnt want the 'pocketbook damage'.

    I am pretty sure the prices are decent considering the size of the trees.

    I bought a beautiful weeping crabapple that is about 8 ft tall, an upright flowering crabapple that I think she called prariefire with dark red foliage. I also bought a very interesting small tree about 5 ft tall that is some kind of hazelnut, I think she called it a twisted hazelnut. It is all curved and contorted kind of like Harry Lauder's Walking Stick. I also bought a white lilac, and another lilac with tiny pink flowers called tinkerbell, two clematis and one rosebush. I also picked up a semidwarf honeycrisp apple, and she gave me an unknown apple tree for free. Evidently the tag fell off it last year and so she doesnt have any idea what kind it is. I am pretty sure its a standard because its about 6 ft tall already. I guess we will see when it decides to bear fruit.

    So now I have more trees to plant. I planted some trees out on my property today (which was a fiasco that will tell about later.)

    Bye for now,

    RE: Interesting and unique plants at local nursery

    You're going to like the prairiefire crab.

    The "twisted hazelnut" is probably a corkscrew hazelnut, also known as contorted filbert or Harry Lauder's Walking Stick. They are very interesting when mature. A couple of people in our area have them.
