The Perfect Plants For Your Maryland Garden

Rich in history, geography and people, Maryland is sometimes called “America in Miniature”.  It’s also a state of “firsts”, including the first railroad and home to famous inventions (such as the gas light and refrigerator).  Designated as one of the “greenest” states in the nation, Maryland’s diverse climate and variable elevation makes it ideal for gardening…and Nature Hills Nursery has met the needs of Marylanders for over 13 years.  Whether living in metropolitan Baltimore, along the Chesapeake Bay or on a farm in Kent County, Nature Hills Nursery has the products and services Marylanders love.

Choosing A Tree For Your Maryland Home

The majestic and versatile White Oak is the state tree of Maryland, but our Maryland guests often prefer the Lavender Twist Weeping redbud (with its canopy of spring and fall color), Purple Crape Myrtle (for its summer-long floral display), and the Mimosa (with its union of texture, color and versatility).  River Birch, with its peeling multi-toned trunk and graceful branches, is likewise a favorite of our “Old Line State” visitors, and is in fact one of the most planted birch trees in the United States.  Nature Hills Nursery prides itself on providing the best stock available throughout the nation. 

Selecting Maryland Shrubs

Residents of the Chesapeake Bay state know that the best shrubs come from Nature Hills Nursery.  Long-time popular choices are Frost Proof Gardenia (with its elegant, fragrant blooms), and the Chester Thornless Blackberry (that produces delicious fruit).  The Bi-Color Butterfly Bush, Dark Knight Bluebeard and America Holly round out the list of favorites with hardy specimens that provide abundant beauty while still being low maintenance.  Whatever the choice, Nature Hills Nursery stocks high quality shrubs with affordable prices for our Maryland guests year after year. 

Popular Maryland Perennials

From the Atlantic coastal plain to the Appalachian region…or anywhere in the lovely state of Maryland, Nature Hills Nursery understands Marylander’s love of colorful perennials.  Such high-performing, hardy varieties as Black Eyed Susan, Coneflowers and ornamental grasses are common favorites.  Delicate Coral Bells and the impressive, climbing Clematis are likewise popular choices of our Maryland friends.  Whether living in the Blue Ridge region, the fertile valley of the Piedmont or in an apartment in Silver Springs, Nature Hills Nursery is ready with the products and services needed for beautiful and productive surroundings.

Maryland is one of the smallest states in the nation, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in geographic diversity.  With its many conditions and options for gardening choices, Marylanders know that Nature Hills Nursery is a company to be relied upon for the best in both products and service.
