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.

The Russian Mountain Ash is a stunning ornamental tree with the perfect pop of colour. It bears white flowers in the spring and gorgeous orange berries in the fall. Birds enjoy the berries that persist into the winter. It grows tall and can thrive in an urban setting making this an attractive ornamental tree for your landscaping project.
