Our trees and plants      


Here is a presentation of the species of fencing trees that we grow and sale in our nurseries.  

BUXUS SEMPERVIRENS

Buxus sempervirens

Long a tradition in colonial landscapes, Boxwood is a finetextured plant familiar to most gardeners and non-gardeners alike. Native to a few locations in Southern England and distributed though Southern Europe, N.Africa and Western Asia. Eventually reaching 6- to 8-feet-tall (old specimens cab be much taller), Boxwood grows slowly into a billowing mound of soft foliage. Flowers are borne in the leaf axils and are barely noticeable to the eye, but they have a distinctive aroma that irritates some people.

 


Cupressus Cyparis Leilandii

Leyland cypress (X Cupressocyparis leylandii) is an intergeneric (of two separate genera) cross between Monterey cypress (Cupressus macrocarpa) and Alaska Cedar (Chamaecyparis nootkatensis) that originated in England in 1888. Since that time, many cultivars have been selected that differ in coloration and growth habit for use in shelterbelts, hedges, landscape plantings, and Christmas tree production. Plants will tolerate a wide range of soil types from clay to sand, acid to alkaline. It grows well in full sun, but tolerates partial shade. Growth is best when moisture is adequate, but it is also drought tolerant and suitable for dry sites. Classified hardy to USDA Hardiness Zone 7 (average minimum winter temperature 0° to 10°F), Leyland cypress is relatively cold hardy and well suited to plantings throughout the southeast.Recently, Leyland cypress has shown promise for Christmas tree production because of its fast growth, natural form and attractive foliage. The foliage is scale-like without the sharp needles common to Eastern redcedar and Arizona cypress. Foliage color varies by cultivar from bright green to gray, including a variegated cultivars with green foliage and white, yellow to gold branch tips. Most Christmas tree producers choose the Leighton Green cultivar for its dark green color and good growth form.Many growers produce saleable trees in four year on quality sites, and there are few major diseases or insect pests that limit growth. Generally, Leyland cypress plantations yield a greater percentage of marketable trees than Virginia pine or Eastern redcedar plantations. Propagation is by rooted cuttings as the cross does not produce seed. Unlike most Christmas tree species, Leylands have no noticeable aroma.


Photinia Fraseri Red Robin

Photinia fraseri is an evergreen shrub that has moderate to fast upright growth habit and can get to a height of 10 to 15 feet and a width of 15 feet. This Photinia was discovered at Fraser's Nursery in Birmingham, Alabama and was formerly known as 'Birmingham'. This commonly used shrub has oval leaves that are a bright showy bronze- red in youth and mature to a dark leathery green. Red Tip Photinia is good as sheared hedge or a tall screen, prune often to prevent legginess.


LAURO

Lauroceraso (Prunus laurocerasus) - Famiglia Rosacee

 


 Nandina Domestica

Also known as heavenly bamboo, nandina is an evergreen or semi-evergreen woody shrub often used in landscaping. Its distinctive compound leaves which have lance shaped leaflets are held on multiple nonbranching stems. The whole plant has a very lacy appearance and upright form, growing 6-8 ft (1.8-2.4 m) The species tends to sucker outward, forming ever larger clumps. In spring, there are large panicles of small white flowers at the end of stems followed by green berries which ripen to bright red that are held for many months (unless devoured by birds).

 


Ligustrum

Il ligustro è un arbusto eretto a fogliame in parte caduco. I rami giovani sono molto flessibili, con scarsa peluria e provvisti di corteccia grigia con numerose lenticelle di piccole dimensioni. Essendo riccamente ramificato è caratterizzato da una chioma arrotondata a cespuglio, alta fino circa 2-3 m. È una pianta caratterizzata da un apparato radicale esteso a poca profondità, spesso dotato di stoloni, veri e propri fusti sotterranei che danno origine a più esemplari concentrati nella stessa zona.Le foglie sono alterne, raccolte in gruppi, ognuna lunga circa 6 cm e larga 2 cm. La forma è ovale nelle foglie basali e lanceolata in quelle superiori, tutte terminanti con breve picciolo; il margine è lineare e continuo. La pagina superiore appare lucente, di colore verde scuro, mentre quella inferiore verde chiaro. La caduta del fogliame raggiunge la massima entità quando si sviluppa la nuova generazione di foglie.
