Russian Almond
Tamarix Juniper

Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets attracts wildlife. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. They are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

Tamarix Juniper has attractive, year round, blue-green foliage that will pop on a winter landscape. Not only does it provide winter interest, Tamarix Juniper is unique in that it does not “hug” the ground as one would expect. If you’re looking for a shrub that is low maintenance, rabbit resistant, and tolerant of a variety of conditions, try Tamarix Juniper.
