Aronia is a native shrub that doesn’t mind our local clay soils. Delicate white flowers bloom in spring, followed by dark purple berries that benefit wildlife. Its glossy foliage transforms to striking shades of red each fall. An excellent native alternative to burning bush.
Astilbe Fall Foliage
Most know perennial astilbe for its colorful summer plumes but did you know it has beautiful fall foliage too? ‘Delft Lace’ is one of our favorite varieties for its deep red stems and blue-green foliage that turns burgundy in fall.
Stone for Fall Projects
The garden is beginning to wind down and the ground hasn’t frozen yet. It is a nice time of year to finish stepping stone, walkway, or patio projects before another bustling spring. Visit the nursery to check out bluestone and fieldstone that will look beautiful in the landscape.

Bountiful Fruit Trees
Having fruit tree envy this fall? Get a head start on your own home orchard and pick from an extensive selection of apple, pear, peach, and cherry trees. If you’re limited on space, we recommend self-fertile peach and sour cherry varieties that don’t require a second tree for pollination.
Our fruit trees start in 7-gallon containers and range between 5-7′ tall. Many will fruit fairly soon; next year or the year after usually. A few tips for fruit tree success:
- Water now. Fall-planted trees still need a drink when they’re installed and as needed until the ground freezes.
- Use tree collars to prevent rodents from chewing bark in winter. Best $2 insurance policy.
- Rake up and dispose/burn any diseased foliage in fall.
- Water in spring. Newly planted fruit trees need attentive watering for a few seasons, especially after a dry year like this summer.
