Ginkgo Biloba
Rocky Mountain Juniper

The Ginkgo Biloba is regarded as one of the most distinctive and beautiful of all the deciduous trees, and has remained genetically unchanged for millions of years. Its beautifully fan-shaped leaves develop a clear yellow colour in fall. Graceful and attractive year-round, Ginkgo is the perfect conversation starter in your yard.

The Rocky Mountain Juniper is a columnar and slightly rounded evergreen shrub that features foliage with colours that range from a light green to a dark blue-green. It produces round, dark-blue berry-like cones that ripen in the second year.

Rocky Mountain Junipers have great ornamental value due to its varying colours and can attract wildlife into your yard as the “berries” are favored by birds.
