Our plant pick of the month is Flowering Quince, which is a deciduous shrub known for its red, pink, salmon or white flowers that bloom from late winter into very early spring.

Stewartia
This multi-stemmed deciduous tree is rounded with a columnar habit. The tree features a stunning bark that exfoliates as it matures, and the trunk turns a reddish brown. In mid-summer with its dark green leaves it develops camellia-like white flowers. Foliage turns a bronze- purple color in the fall. The stewartia is an excellent specimen tree that grows up to 30’ tall and 15’ wide. It does well in morning sun and partial shade. Avoid areas that get hot afternoon sun.

Leydon Landscaping is now providing clients with their summer pruning and cleanup program. Now that the growth of spring has slowed it is time to prune trees, shrubs and perennials. Contact Leydon Landscaping to get on the schedule and get your landscape back into shape.

Bulb Orders
Bulbs are a great addition to the garden with a burst of early spring color. Do you have an area of ground cover or empty spot in your garden? Bulbs are the perfect answer to these areas. Leydon Landscaping can design areas of bulbs that are the right fit such as drifts of daffodils, which are a great way to welcome in the spring . Another reason to use daffodils is that they are deer resistant. Bulbs can be easily installed in new and existing beds. Place your bulb order now with Leydon Landscaping for the upcoming fall season.
