It’s time to add some color to our Landscaping projects. We have talked a lot about the “Green” plants at Barry’s Nursery and there are lots of choices. But now were going to look at some other “Colorful” plant options available at Barry’s Nursery.
Some “colorful” plant options available at Barry’s Nursery.
Rhododendrons perform best in regions with cool, moist summers. They bloom in late spring to early summer; flower colors include pink, red, violet, yellow, and white, depending on the species and variety. Size also varies considerably, from 1 or 2 feet to over 20 feet in height, so choose plants carefully to fit your garden situation.

Planting Instructions Plant in spring or fall. Space plants 2 to 6 feet apart, depending on the expected mature size of the plant. Dig a hole only as deep as the root ball and 2 to 3 times as wide. If your soil is in very poor condition, amend the soil you’ve removed from the hole with a small amount of compost. Otherwise don’t amend it at all. Carefully remove the plant from the container and set it in the hole. Fill the hole half full with soil, then water it well to settle the soil and eliminate air pockets. Let the water drain, then fill the remainder of hole with soil and water thoroughly.
Another one of Barry’s Nursery’s specialties is our Snow Fountains trees.
As a weeping tree, Snow Fountains Cherry features cascading branches that dip all the way to the ground, giving it the appearance of a white fountain when covered with pure white flowers in early spring. This cultivar is known by several different names, including ‘Snofozam’ Weeping Cherry and ‘White Fountain’ Cherry.
This deciduous garden tree grows to 6’-12’ in height and 5’-12’ in width. It bears leaves arranged in an alternating fashion which are 3” long and 2” wide. During the summer the leaves are dark green, while in the fall they turn gold and orange before they are shed. Bloom starts in late April and extends for three weeks. The flowers are small, white and five-petaled. Occasionally, small red, later turning to black, fruit form as the flowers fade. Fruit are not edible. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to the bloom.
