Labrador Tea

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.

The Korean Maple is an ideal accent tree, and is similar in size and shape to the Japanese Maple, but much hardier.

The leaves have long, finger-like lobes that turn striking shades of yellow, orange and red in autumn.

It is recommended that pruning be done during the summer after the leaves have fully developed to ensure sap does not "bleed" down the tree.
