A Bright Spot

Hi Joe,

Following up with you and your family. Thinking about you with this destructive fires happening around us. Several news came out of Kenwood hoping that you and your family are ok.

Our home is still standing for now, but our neighbors to the right and in front of us lost their homes. 20 feet away on Altruria 30 plus homes are burnt to the grounds! Amazingly enough the Maples trees in are still standing!

Take care,

Fire Season

Kenwood has several active fires this week and only emergency personnel are working in the area.

Once Kenwood is safe and we can return to Wildwood, we will take stock of nursery.

Planting Season

It's always planting season in California.  With the start of fall, the soil is warm while the air temperature is a little less intense.

We took a trip to Larkspur, CA to plant a Glowing Ember Japanese Maple, Baldsmith Japanese Maple, and two Coral Bark Japanese Maples.  They were big trees too!  Two 45 gallon cans and two 24" box containers.

They rolled into their new digs and made an immediate splash!

Just Add Water

Looking for an instant tree?

Now they're at Wildwood Nursery.  The new selection of Japanese Maples and Umbrella Pines are established trees that can transform any setting.

They have the width - nine feet - to fill any gap in your garden.  They have the height - nine feet - to provide shade and layers of branches to see through.

It's easier then ever to see what trees look like fully grown!

Dogwoods in Bloom

The kousas are blooming! The kousas are blooming!

May is the peak blooming season for Asian dogwoods.  The star shaped flowers are bright white and soft pinks. 

Dogwoods like Angel Wings, Satomi, and Blue Shadow are as intriguing as they sound.  They look great in clusters or as a focal point in the garden.

Visit Wildwood Nursery and see mature Cornus kousa varieties blooming in the gardens.

Starting with our Second Saturday in May, Wildwood Nursery is thrilled to have a Jonsai display.

Created by body boarder, dj, and gardener Jon Forney, these mini gardens are add style and fun to small surfaces.  The Jonsai philosophy combines casual California cool with the art of bonsai.

Jon combines materials and plants in fresh ways.  From coconut planters with heavenly bamboo to drift wood boxes with ginkgo his style spans regions and mediums.

Visit Wildwood May 13 for a special afternoon demonstration!

Queen of Flowers

The Peony is one of the most prized flowers in the gardening world.  English, Asian, and American gardeners all admire the sheer size and vibrant color of the peony flower.

Peonies bloom religiously in the gardens at Wildwood Nursery, tempting visitors to touch, smell, and photograph.  Now, the nursery has Itoh and Tree Peonies available in containers.  Magenta, cherry, purple, white, and red colors are all waiting for new homes.

Remember to water them with ice in the winter to keep them cool so they burst into a blaze of color!
