Natura Garden Trees, Shrubs & Roses
Natura Garden Favorites
At Natura Gardens we have a few favorite trees & shrubs! On the list are old favorites that have been known to do well here for years and also varieties that have been introduced recently!
The following examples are just a few of our favorites and our list is always changing.
Aspen-A Wyoming favorite. Aspens do well in landscapes do to their somewhat columnar growth habit. People love the unique markings on their bark and beautiful fall color.
Austrian Pine - Not as well known as the Colorado Blue Spruce but a fabulous addition to any landscape. Austrian pines fare better than the spruce in times of drought. These pines have an open branching system that many prefer.
Cottonwood- An oldie but a goodie! Many people have been turned against this species because of the problems older varieties had, flying cotton, disease and being to large for smaller landscapes. However, new varieties offered are cottonless, have been bred for disease resistance and are more columnar in habit while still offering nice branching. New varieties of Cottonwoods really are a perfect addition to the Wyoming landscape. They have evolved for thousands of years in Wyoming and thus do well with all of the different climatic situations that arise here. They also offer magnificent color in the fall. Natura Gardens specailizes in the Highland Cottonwood tree develped in Wyoming at the U.S Department of Agriculture Experiement Station.
Dogwood - These bushes are vigourous growers well adapted to Wyoming's climate. There are green leaf varieties as well as a quite attractive vareigated leaf variety. Dogwoods can be trimmed into a hedge or left to grow into a bigger bush. They have beautiful white flower clusters in early spring and dark purple berries in the fall. They are stunning against the white snow and gray skies during winter in Wyoming, sporting bright red or yellow stems.
Maple Royal Red- This tree is Beautiful! So unique with it's soft red leaves all season long. This is a large shade tree, however, it is a slow grower and takes a long time to be "big".
