Labrador Tea
Douglas Maple

Labrador Tea is slow-growing evergreen shrub native to the boreal forests of Canada.

It thrives in wet, swampy conditions.

Labrador Tea has narrow, leathery, dark green leaves, topped by a cluster of white flowers in the spring. It is a perfect ornamental shrub for boggy, wet areas of your property.

Douglas Maple is a fast growing, long lived, ornamental tree. It can take on a shrubby or multi-stemmed form with densely packed leaves, making it an excellent tree for privacy screens and hedges.

In the fall, the leaves make a brilliant change to red, orange, or yellow depending on the tree and its sun exposure. Douglas Maple's compact size makes it ideal for planting in urban yards and under power lines.
