There are many benefits to planting container trees including no need to wait for spring or fall harvest for availability.
Koelreutaria paniculata (Goldenrain Tree) is one of many we have in production and ready to ship - shown above. Our hydrangea and hibiscus trees are now flowering. Shown below is the #15 Kyushu Hydrangea.
Loma Vista Nursery continues to invest in our container tree production and included an expansion earlier this spring.
This section is now filled with shade trees in #15 and #25 containers.
Planting container trees can be a great way to plant a good size tree and have fast establishment in a size that is easy to maneuver. Both nursery staff and garden center customers will appreciate the ease of handling them. Container trees hold all of their root mass and tend to have less transplant shock and better recovery when planted. At the nursery, more efficient use of space is realized with holding container trees as compared to ball and burlap trees. Shown below is a section of container trees with #25 Acer rubrum Redpointe at our LDC holding yard in Olathe.
