Re: Green Giant Thuja

OHMYGOSH...I love that place!  We drive by it when we go to my mother in law's house.  She lives right outside of Joplin.  THANKS.

The man that was really promoting Green Giant Thuja is from Springfield 
Missouri. Maybe it would be worth a drive up since you are not too far from 
there. I would do some online looking for info first but might be worth it.

ABOUT US Jan. 2000

The Botany Shop, Inc. started in 1973 as a retail garden center, 
landscape and tree spraying business is located at 710 Minnesota Ave (MAP) 
in downtown Joplin Missouri just off Interstate Highway I-44 in SW Missouri 
between Springfield MO and Tulsa OK. In 1985 we started specializing in 
improved cultivars of red maples and other genetically superior trees and 
shrubs suitable to our area--Zone 6. In 1996 I went to the Southern Plant 
Conference and visited the NC State University Arboretum (Raleigh, NC). The 
now famous J.C. Raulston Arboretum. At that time I became aware of his Thuja 
Plicata Collection and was very impressed with the species (cultivars) and 
its ability to grow well and fast under adverse conditions. Due to the 
disease, insect, deer and other problems with our Pines, Spruces and 
Junipers, I was looking for substitute plants for screening and specimen 
evergreens. After visiting many botanical gardens and extensive literature 
reviews I am convinced Thuja Plicata, its cultivars and hybrids (Green 
Giant), will be very important plants for our future land

Mission Statement: 
January 2000

The Botany Shop is starting its E_Commerce, Mail-Order business with 
three of the most vigorous outstanding new ornamentals we have ever used.

1. Thuja Green Giant - a newly released screening evergreen from 
the US National Arboretum.

2. Autumn Blaze Maple - an outstanding, tough tree. Probably the 
most sought after maple in the U.S.

3. Honeycomb B. wyeriana - Butterfly Bush. (Summer Lilac) The 
best yellow we have ever used. Discovered and introduced by Dr. Michael 
Dirr. His book--Manual of Woody Landscape Plants--is the bible of the 
industry. This book is a must for any serious student of landscape plants.


As 0f July 24, 2000 we are adding several new USDA Acer Rubrum Red 
Maple varieties as well as some of the older, superior, Red Maple cultivars. 
Jan 2002 we have added smaller size USDA red maples.

Valley Forge American Elm will be added in January or February of 

February 15 2002 we are adding 10 more superior varieties of 
butterfly bush and will start shipping May 1st A2002.

June 2003 we added the other two disease resistant American Elm 
trees, New Harmony and Princeton. We also added Knock OutT roses and many 
Pennsylvania Horticultural Society gold medal award winning plants.

In the Spring of 2004 we are adding three cold hardy, continuously 
flowering, Hydrangea Macrophylla and Pink Knock OutT roses.
