Wholesale Trade List 



Fall 1907 

N preparing this, our Wholesale Trade List for Fall 1907, we 
have aimed to present our large collection of Hardy Ornamentals to 
the purchaser in the most concise form. With this object in mind 
and in view of the fact that it is intended for the trade, illustrations 
and descriptions have been purposely omitted. To those unacquainted 
with the stock, however, we will gladly furnish, descriptive matter upon 
application. In fact, we delight in giving information pertaining to 
Hardy Ornamental Plants and inquiries are solicited. 

Customers are requested to state the mode of conveyance by which 
they desire their trees forwarded. When no route is named we forward to 
the best of our judgment. 

Responsibility — After goods are placed on board cars here we 
assume no responsibility for their safe or prompt delivery, or any injury 
caused by delay in delivery by the transportation company. 
All Claims must be made upon receipt of goods. 
Terms Cash, on or before delivery to express or railroad agents,^ 
unless by special arrangement. 

Two Hundred and Fifty, twenty-five and five will be furnished at 
the thousand, hundred and ten rates respectively. 

Packing Charged Extra, but only sufficient to cover cost of time 
and material. 

Post Office Orders payable at Dreshertown, Montgomery Co , Pa.

Visitors are always welcome and should take train at the Reading

Deciduous Trees 



The price of nursery stock is fixed according to the value 
of the tree offered. The value of the tree depends entirely 
upon the character of the stock and it Is this "value" which 
makes prices differ in the catalogues of nurserymen. Stock 
that is sold at a low price is grown with the least possible 
expense put upon it, but at a sacrifice to the "quality." Stock 
that is thoroughly cultivated, grown in good soil, well manured 
and several times transplanted cannot be grown cheaply, but 
its "value" to the planter is increased, and in the long run 
such stock is cheaper than poorly grown stock at a "low 
price." 

We bring up-to-date methods into the production of our 
goods. Our soil is especially adapted for the growing of good 
nursery stock. We spend thousands of dollars yearly In 
manures and in cultivating; besides this our trees are fre- 
quently transplanted. We cull out and burn all crooked and 
imperfect trees so that our customers receive full value for 
the prices charged. 

Intending purchasers of nursery stock should keep this In 
mind when comparing our prices with others. A visit to our 
nurseries will convince any one of the statement we make. 

We call particular attention of customers to the trees 
marked "Specimens/' These are trees that have been fre- 
quently transplanted, set wide apart in nursery rows and are 
well developed in every way.

JAPANESE MAPLES 

Our Japanese Maples are not imported stock. They are 
propagated and grown here. Imported stock is poorly rooted, 
hide-bound and of irregular shape. It rarely succeeds and is 
frequently not true to name. We have been propagating our 
own Japanese Maples for thirty-five years and our stock will 
succeed where imported plants fail. The polymorphum 
atropurpureum are grown from layers, consequently on their 
own roots, and are very bushy plants. The pot grown plants 
are especially adapted for fall planting. They will be shipped 
with the ball unbroken.

The Cedrelia sinensis is a tree similar in appearance and 
general character and habit to the Ailanthus, and will thrive 
under similar conditions, but it does not have the disagreeable 
odor when in flower. It is without doubt one of the best trees 
for street planting in cities and will thrive where no other 
tree will grow.

All of the above Magnolias are of our own propagating and

much healthier and better than imported stock; this is es- 
pecially the case with the Halleana. Each plant will be dug 
with a ball of earth and the ball sewed in burlap. The con- 
spicua are the true pure white variety.

Years ago we began advocating the planting of Oaks for all 
general purposes; now planters realize their merits. Now 
they are used for every purpose. They are planted on boule- 
vards, avenues In parks and cemeteries and more recently 
in the cities. It makes a permanent tree, very free from in- 
sects and is unsurpassed by any other shade tree. The Pin 
Oak is particularly adapted for side-walk planting in cities 
and seems to thrive under the adverse conditions usually 
found in such places.

Deciduous SHrubs 



The height of a shrub does not indicate its value to a cus- 
tomer when making comparison in prices. Some nurserymen 
plant their shrubs thickly in the nursery rows, thereby gain- 
ing height, but such shrubs are not bushy. A shrub that is 
given ample room to develop bushiness will not make the 
same height in a given time as those which have been 
planted closely together. We set our shrubs wide apart in the 
rows and our plants are all good bushy stock; our prices are 
based on this fact, and customers are given full value for 
the prices we charge. The shrubs marked "specimens" are 
large, well developed plants, that have been given ample room 
in the nursery rows to fully develop, they have been several 
times transplanted, and they are exceptionally fine shrubs for 
immediate effect.

The crus galli and coccinea make excellent hedge plants 
where a protective hedge is required. The plants should be 
cut well down to the ground when they are set out, and if this 
is done they will make a good bushy hedge the first year.

HIBISCUS MEEHANI VARIEGATA 

NEW SINGLE FLOWERED VARIEGATED LEAVED 
ALTHAEA 

This is a new variety of the variegated leaved Althaea, the 
foliage showing the white and yellow variegation of the old 
variety, but which differs from the old variety Inasmuch as the 
flowers open wide, and in a strong vigorous plant they are 
about four to five inches in diameter, while on the old variety 
the flowers do not open at all, but look like purple buttons. 

The flower is of a purplish red color, single, and the plant 
blooms profusely. 

This new variety of our common garden Althaea will be 
found perfectly hardy everywhere the old variety has 
proven so.

In many parts of the United States and Canada, Box Edging 
is not hardy, and a low, dwarf and compact plant is required 
as a substitute for it. The Viburnum opulus nanus has been 
found to be an excellent substitute for the Box Edging. It is 
naturally of a dwarf habit and will stand a lot of shearing, so 
that it can be kept down to a very small size. It does not bear 
any flowers and the leaves are smaller than the other varieties 
of Viburnum. It is perfectly hardy and can be planted in any 
part of the United States and Canada.

The Viburnum tomentosum is of a similar character and 
habit to the Viburnum plicatum, but instead of having balls 
of flowers, they are flat headed. In leaf and general growth it 
is about the same as the plicatum, and in fact it is frequently 
mistaken for that variety. It is perhaps a little stronger 
grower than the plicatum, and in some respects it is to be 
preferred. We have a particularly large and fine stock of this 
plant, and call attention to some of the specimen plants which 
we offer.

Everg'reens 

All of our evergreens are specimens. Every tree is given 
careful attention and such varieties as Retinisporas, etc., re- 
quiring it, are sheared as often as necessary in order to pro- 
duce a bushy symetrical tree. They are all branched to the 
ground. We frequently transplant our evergreens and in that 
way, we get a mass of fibrous roots. In nearly every case, as 
noted in the catalogue, the trees will be dug with a ball of 
earth and the ball sewed in burlap. This makes the trans- 
planting of them almost an assured success. Of course, the 
first cost of these evergreens dug and handled in this way, 
is more than common, but as the planter has practically no 
loss with them, he is saving money in the long run. Our stock 
must not be confused with low priced evergreens rarely 
transplanted and grown thickly together.

Our 4 to 5 inch Box Edging were ail transplanted last 
Spring. They are nice, busy little plants and well-rooted. 
The 5 to 6 inch stock is much heavier and bushier, and less 
plants are required to the foot, than for the 4 to 5 inch stock. 
All of this stock is of our own growing, it is not imported. 

The 12 to 15 inch plants have been especially grown for 
edging purposes. They are very bushy and will make a solid 
edging immediately. Set two plants to the foot.

Visitors to our nurseries have been greatly interested and 
pleased with this Juniper, which has not been found in any 
other nursery. The habit is like a sheared pyramidal tree box. 
The foliage is of a bright green color, very compact and some- 
what of the character of a Chinese Juniper. It makes an 
excellent tub plant, or for use where an evergreen of formal 
character is required.

Vines and Climbers 

For Fall planting, our "pot-grown vines" are much more 
desirable than field grown stock. They have been established 
in pots all Summer, they are heavily rooted, and are less 
likely to "heave out" by frost in the Winter. We introduced 
this method of growing vines many years ago and customers 
now prefer it to field-grown stock for Fall work. When ship- 
ping, we knock them out of the clay pots and send in paper 
pots.

Hibiscus Syriactis MeeHani Varieg'ata 

(_Ne\v Single-flowered Variegated-leaved Alth9ea.) 

THE old variegated-leaved Althaea is one of our best shrubs where a plant with 
colored foliage is required, but unfortunately the flowers do not open, con- 
s-equently the general flowering eff"ect is lost. 

This new variety far surpasses the old form in as much as the flowers, 
though single, open completelj-, and the color, which is of a purplish red, makes a 
strong contrast to the yellowish white variegation of the foliage. 

Visitors to our nurseries declare this to be one of the best introductions in the 
horticultural field in recent years, and we have alreadj^ booked numerous orders 
from those who have seen the plant growing on our grounds. 

The above illustration shows the free-blooming character ol this plant. The 
flowers are larger than the other varieties of Althaea. The plant is as hardy as the 
old variegated-leaved form. 

This will doubtless be a profitable plant for all nurserymen, dealers and agents 
to handle. Illustrated circulars and colored plates will be furnished to those in the 
trade at prices below cost. Half-tone illustrations in various sizes, both small and 
large, suitable for use in catalogues will be furnished without cost to customers who 
order plants from us. 

Sample colored plates, circulars and proof of these half-tone cuts, also terms on 
same will be sent upon application. 

For sizes and prices of plants see page i8 of this catalogue.
