A New Member of our Team!

Caylie among 8-10' Tonto Crape Myrtles and Nellie R. Stevens Hollies
We are pleased to report that Caylie Ussery joined our team this Fall! She is working in our Nursery division, selling large trees wholesale to landscapers and garden centers across the Mid-Atlantic region. An ECU grad, Caylie brings a sunny disposition and great energy to our sales team, and we feel very fortunate to have her.

Caylie is decidedly hands on with the material she sells, and here are some pictures to prove it.

News from the Nursery

The Nursery is having a nice fall this year, mainly due to the beautiful, full grown Hollies and Crape Myrtles we have available.

12-14' Biloxi Crape Myrtle
We are quite proud of our Crape Myrtles (as evidenced by the fact that we have posted about them herehere, and here). Our collection includes a full array of whimsical names - e.g. Natchez, Catawba, Sioux, Tonto, Osage, Potomac, Dynamite, and Tuskegee - with colors ranging from white to pink to lavender to vivid red.

One rarity we have are our large Acoma Crape Myrtles, which have a shrub like growth habit and bright white flowers. This slow grower can take years to reach 5', so the 6 or 7 we have in the 8' range are what is known in the trade as 'hard to find.'

As we've said before, there is no sod like new sod - and here are some pictures from this past summer which prove the point.

For this customer, we installed some plant material, some trees, and even helped wash some windows! But the eye-catcher here is the lush, green grass we installed. Take a look ....
