Serviceberry Tree Michler's Greenhouse

The Serviceberry Tree (Amelanchier)

Whether you call it Serviceberry or Juneberry this sweet little tree has so much to offer. It is often planted as an ornamental because of it's slender, sculptural branches and attractive foliage. Beyond that, it bursts with small white blooms in the springtime which give way to deep red berries in June (giving it the nickname Juneberry!).

Lilac Shrubs

Thinking about Mother's Day?  The Lilac 'Palibin' (Syringa myeri 'Palibin') bloom a tad bit later than the common Lilac, and thus are timed perfectly for Mother's Day.  John Michler planted a large boarder of this variety for his Mother in her front yard, so she can enjoy the beautiful and fragrant blooms each Mother's Day.  You can visit us and select from our large selection of lilacs or order a select florist quality plant for Mother's Day delivery.

Herbaceous Peonies

Early in spring, you will see small ruby red sprouts reaching out of the ground in many yards and gardens. These odd little limbs grow taller and glossy leaves begin to unfurl from all sidesVery soon, you have a bushy little peony getting ready to burst into bloom.

Spring Ephemerals

April is here right along with our favorite spring ephemeral blooms. Ephemerals pop up to delight us for just a few weeks before vanishing again. A fun way to ring in spring is to head to the trails with the intention of spotting these fleeting woodland wildflowers.
