Klyn Nurseries Introductions

Acer campestre ‘Emerald Splendor’™– Typical of a hedge maple with a rounded and upright habit but with distinct winged and corky branches that are especially showy when dormant. The wings rival winged euonymus and are an orangey brown when young. The tree has the unique characteristic of breaking dormancy about 10 days later than the species.

Acer campestre ‘Hedge King’™– The tree brings unique form to hedge maple with its tight, compact and narrow habit of growth. The tree naturally grows more upright than the species working well as an urban tree where a more narrow form is desired.

Acer cissifolium ‘Golden Veil”-Golden Veil is an unusual form of this rather uncommon small maple. The unique green foliage is finely divided like that of an Acer dissectum turning shades of golden yellow and orange in the autumn.

Bignonia capreolata ‘Gold Finch’™-A unique color breakthrough with pure golden yellow trumpets providing a bright splash of color and a nectar source for hummingbirds and butterflies in later spring. The foliage is a brighter shade of green than the species.

Caltha palustris ‘Double Gold’-This plant was found several years ago and after years of observation, we are proud to introduce this double flowered form of Marsh Marigold. The deep, double golden-yellow flowers are striking against the dark green foliage that is more robust than the species. Flowers have twice as many petals as the native species and last longer in the landscape.

CERCIS c. ‘Northern Lites’™-Bright hot pink flowers adorn the branches of this very hardy form of redbud.  Winters in Ohio have shown the plant to be much hardier than Appalachian Red with the same intensity of color and has withstood temperatures to -29⁰ with no injury to growth or flower buds. 

Cornus drummondii Lemon Drops™-This new and exciting selection of Giant Gray Dogwood was selected from a group of seedlings at Klyn Nurseries. It has the same overall habit of the species but when it blooms the clusters of flowers are a soft saffron yellow displayed against dark green glossy foliage. In late summer the fruit develop into clear yellow. Autumn leaves are shades of burgundy, red and orange.

Diospyros virginiana Golden Delight™-Large, sweet and tasty fruits ripen earlier than the species. It was selected for its early ripening and fruits that are almost double the average size of most native persimmons.

Malus sargentii Pendula-Selected for its horizontal to weeping branches and flat mounding to weeping habit when grown on the ground. The plant makes a unique small specimen for the shrub border or rock garden or as a small weeping tree when top grafted.

Malus sargentii Tina’s Weeper™– The original plant was found as a ground cover no more than 3′ tall. When top grafted or staked, the slender branches weep gracefully creating a fountain of green foliage and white flowers followed by red fruit.

Nyssa sylvatica Tupelo Tower™-Selected for its very tight, upright habit unlike the species. The lustrous dark green summer foliage turns shades of orange in early fall.

Picea pungens ‘Blue Wave’-The plant is selected for its low spreading mound of bright azure blue that does not form a leader and stays lower than any other form of Blue Spruce.

Syringa pekinensis Great Wall™-A Peking lilac with great form. The upward sweeping branches give the tree an overall upright oval form. Sparkling white clusters appear in mid June. The cherry-like bark exfoliates adding to the beauty of the tree.

Viburnum prunifolium Dark Tower™-A unique Blackhaw Viburnum with thick dark green glossy foliage covering the pyramidal form of this small tree. it readily forms a central leader with stout branches and uniform habit. Clusters of showy white flowers appear in May, followed in autumn by dark blue fruits fading to black.
