Above: A planting with very cold hardy Windmill Palm used as a small evergreen tree on the corner of the house in the Brices Creek area of Craven County, NC. The palm has yellow flowers in spring followed by blue fruit in fall. The Windmill palms are underplanted with the NC native Dwarf Palmetto Palm and Knockout roses. In the left background is the NC Native Sabal palmetto with dwarf red Crape Myrtle to the right and tree-form Tuscarora Crape Myrtle in the far background.

New palm planting around pool in Onslow County.
NC container grown cold hardy palms; Butia odorata, Sabal Birmingham, Sabal Brazoriensis and Windmill Palm. Since they are container grown by Gary's Nursery from very hardy seed stock these palms will take off growing immediately and there will be no long recovery period as when B&B palms are planted.

A very low maintenance landscape installation 6 years or so after planting in Olde Town. Dwarf Yaupon, Dwarf Palmetto and Needle Point Holly. Light trimming once a year has kept the plants in great condition. The NC native Dwarf Palmetto has white flowers and then black berries enjoyed by the birds in the winter.
A Fall scene where Eastern NC Sabal minor palms were used with Natchez Crape Myrtle. The cinnamon colored bark of the Crape Myrtle and the blue/green color of the Sabal minor add colorful interest to the landscape.
