While winter is still clearly present in the Hill Country, we are starting to see signs of spring. Read ahead to find out about what’s looking good here at the nursery.
Arizona Cypress is native to West Texas. It’s not a native to our area of the state; however, it is extremely well adapted to our climate, dry conditions, and soil. It grows fast and provides a wonderful evergreen screen or wind block. We have a few varieties available here at the nursery. Each variety grows fast, although some fuller and faster than others. Ultimately, the tree can grow up to 50’ tall by 20’ wide.

Field Dug Trees
We have a number of trees that have been dug from our field and are ready to be planted now. This is the best time of year to plant trees. We have the following trees balled and burlapped and ready for installation:
- 15-17' Multi-trunk 'Bubba' Desert Willow
- 4-5' Mountain Laurel
- 8' Pride of Houston Yaupon Holly
- 12-14' Multi-trunk Mosty Red Crape Myrtles
Redbud trees will be blooming soon and it’s always such a beautiful promise that spring is almost here in the Hill Country.
The Texas Redbud is native to our area and grows to approximately 25’ tall. It has a small heart-shaped leaf, bright pink/purple bloom, and smooth reddish brown bark. The tree naturally grows as multi-trunk but can be easily pruned and trimmed as a single-trunk tree.
We have 5G and 30g Texas Redbuds available now.
