An ancient tree that's never been more popular, pomegranates are a fabulous winter gift for the holidays, weddings or any very special occasion. 'Ambrosia' has pale pink skin and it's lovely on the tree in the gray of winter. But its brilliant red seeds are bursting with sweet and tangy juice that is loaded with antioxidants, so it is more than just pretty! This tree will work well in coastal climates as well as inland. We'll deliver it and plant it, but you'll get all the appreciation for...
The queen of the California garden! There are flowers! Fragrance! And loads of lemons almost all year round. The 'Meyer' has a thinner skin and is a bit sweeter and super-juicy, so it makes a perfect gift for foodies, entertainers and anyone who needs a reminder of what to do "when life hands you lemons!"
'Little Gem' is perfectly named! It adds all the charm of its cousin, the iconic southern magnolia, but doesn't need a lot of space. Gorgeous big creamy white flowers are lightly scented and the shiny deep green foliage makes it a lovely focal point in the smallest of gardens. This one is truly special!
Can we have warm winters AND gorgeous fall color? Yes we can. The Chinese Pistache works well as a shade tree, and as a front or backyard focal point. After it is established, it handles drought well and will grow at a moderate rate to about 30' high and wide so it needs plenty of room. In winter, the leaves drop off and then you'll know spring is just around the corner.
Fabulous bloom with showy, deep magenta, orchid-shaped flowers from late fall through spring along the coast. A real stunner! Semi-evergreen, so there is always some foliage. Ideal ornamental, can reach 20' tall and wide at full maturity.
Rio Red comes from Texas. Its red-blushed fruit offers lots of flavor and sweetness. Few seeds, if any, and can hang on the tree quite a while.
Who doesn't love freshly squeezed OJ? Or a Mimosa made with freshly-squeezed OJ? Your giftees will be delighted with this classic California orange tree - so very pretty on the patio and so very tasty on the brunch table. Not to mention the heavenly fragrance when the tree is in bloom!
