Manchurian Apricot
Meyers Spruce

Manchurian Apricot is a winter-hardy relative of the native plum. This tree can stand some drought, but will not handle standing water or saturated moist soils. It can be used in shelterbelts, hedges, or as an ornamental. Manchurian Apricot will also attract songbirds, rabbits, and other rodents if left uncontrolled.

This tree will produce fruit once it reaches maturity at between two and five years old. Other famous cultivars of Manchurian Apricot include Scout Apricot, Moongold, and many more.

Meyer's Spruce is a popular accent tree with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. This tree resembles Blue Spruce with its flaking bark and bluish-green needles. Meyer's Spruce can tolerate very dry conditions. This species is deer resistant.
