Gleditsia triacanthos f. inermis 'Emerald Kascade'February 15, 2003

This week many of the winter flowering plants are at their peak including Lenten Rose (Helleborus ×hybridus), Japanese flowering apricot (Prunus mume), grapeholly (Mahonia ×media cultivars), winter honeysuckle (Lonicera), witchhazel (Hamamelis) and golden paperbush (Edgeworthia). Early daffodils (Narcissus 'Rijnveld's Early Sensation') have opened in the Winter Garden area, and the bright red stems of the bloodtwig dogwood (Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter Fire') will stop you in your tracks! A few of the many plants at the Arboretum with interesting form, especially evident in the winter months, include: the weeping honeylocust (Gleditsia triacanthos var. inermis 'Emerald Cascade') in the nandinia collection, weeping Texas redbud (Cercis canadensis subsp. texensis 'Traveller') in the mixed border, hardy orange (Poncirus trifoliata 'Flying Dragon') in the winter garden, and the fantastic weeping winged elm (Ulmus alata 'Lace Parasol') behind the rose garden.
