Tried & True Selections From your Growers at Spring Grove Nursery 

Here is a highlighted list of trees we have found to perform well in our nursery and in the landscape. These trees thrive in our fields despite the extreme climate fluctuations we have experienced in recent years. We are always evaluating which selections seem to flourish despite a wide range of extremes, yet still offer ornamental interest in the landscape. Everything we grow here at the nursery is worth merit, or we wouldn’t grow it! These are just a few selections that have caught our attention in recent years:

Walking through the nursery on a quiet summer evening brings all sorts of pleasant surprises. On this night, we caught a few Catalpa flowers in full bloom along with the ending blooms of Purple Robe Black Locust. 

A few rows over, we admired a young crop of Honeylocust & Elms. These were recently pruned and staked as needed – ready for next season. We have an amazing crop of 2″ Elms, Locust and Linden for this fall and next spring.

As we turned around to head back we were greeted by a colorful sunset over the Lindens. A perfect way to end the day!
