Instant Beauty and Spectacular Color
Get your garden looking great this season with annuals
Spruce up your garden with a splash of color this season. Blooming now until the first frost, annuals add color in the bare spaces between your shrubs and perennials. Cedar Run Landscapes has a great supply of annuals in our greenhouses waiting to beautify your garden. To learn more about our annuals please visit our Blog.
This year we have a few special annual climbing vines. Vines are a great way to create interest even in the smallest of spaces. Why not go vertical with your garden? One of our favorites is the Moon vine (Ipomoea alba), also known as the Night Blooming Morning Glory.This annual has fragrant blossoms that open in the evening, reflecting the moonlight and adding a tropical feel to your garden during the evening hours.

Project of the Month
Bringing Elements of the Old to the New
|Hardscaping Work Along Side of Customers Home |
Last month we took a look at the hardscape materials Cedar Run Landscapes used at a customer's home. We return to the same property to showcase how we incorporated our customers statuary from their old property into their new landscape.
|La Brezza Statue at Customers Previous Home|
When designing for this customer's new home our staff was asked to incorporate landscape elements from the old property. The La Brezza statue, as seen in the above image, was an important focal point at the old home and was something our customer wished to highlight in their new landscape. With the installation of the stone wall behind the statue at the new property, as seen below, we were able to keep the statue as a focal point while bringing facets of the old to the new.

Ben Franklin Tree
This trees survival can be attributed to Philadelphia's William Bartram, an eighteenth-century naturalist. Not seen in the wild since 1803, this deciduous multi-stemmed tree has gained popularity for its history and year-round interest. Its fragrant white blooms with orange-yellow stamen begin emerging in late July. As fall arrives the orange, red and purple leaves of the Ben Franklin Tree often join a few late blossoms. Its tenacious seed heads and striped branches provide interest during the winter months. The Franklinia does best in partial shade but will tolerate full sun to dense shade.
Height: 15-20 Feet
Spread: 10-15 Feet
Hardiness Zone: 5-8
