Today, with so many people living in urban spaces, plantable green space is often limited. As a result, there is demand for smaller sized plants to better fit such compact gardens and landscapes. This collection is a valuable resource that contains examples of trees, shrubs, evergreens, and woody perennials that retain their small stature throughout their lifetime. These dwarf, woody plants are well-suited for smaller green spaces, whether it be for a city townhome or a ranch in the suburbs.
The Dwarf Woody Plant Collection covers only about one acre but it contains 127 different kinds of low-growing trees and shrubs. Some of the more notable plants are lavender Twist® redbud (Cercis canadensis 'Covey'), compact white fir (Abies concolor 'Compacta'), and autumn cascades black tupelo (Nyssa sylvatica 'Autumn Cascades').
