Washington Hawthorn
Dappled Willow

Washington Hawthorn is an attractive ornamental shrub that is dense enough to plant as a privacy screen. It produces clusters of white blooms in late spring to early summer.

Washington Hawthorn's red berries last throughout winter, bringing squirrels and birds to your property. In the fall, its foliage turns beautiful orange, scarlet, or purple.

One of the most overlooked trees on the prairies. This tree is often used as rootstock, a wildlife attractor, or a boulevard hedge. Give this one a second look.

This species is also known as one of the more salt-tolerant species for those with saline soils.

Please note: this plant is poisonous to dogs.

Dappled Willow is a small, cold hardy shrub with unusual beauty. Its leaves are pink in spring, maturing into variegated shades of pink, white and green. After losing their leaves in autumn, the stems maintain a rich red color throughout the winter. For a splash of color, try Dappled Willow on its own or as a hedge.
