Proven Winners ColorChoice Trees

The Number One Plant Brand now includes trees!

Over the last 20 years, we've built one of the most successful shrub brands in North America. Adding trees to the Proven Winners® ColorChoice® line, then, is a natural outgrowth of our mission to offer the best woody plants on the market. We are proud to work with Maria Zampini of UpShoot to select, distribute, and market the varieties that make up the new Proven Winners tree line.

The primary selection criteria for Proven Winners ColorChoice Trees is similar to that of ColorChoice Shrubs: superior beauty, disease resistance, landscape-friendly size and habit, multi-season interest, and retail appeal. The line includes:

Metamorphosa Japanese maple (Acer palmatum) ¤ Avalanche Asian birch (Betula x) ¤  Midnight Express redbud (Cercis canadensis)  

Golden Shadows® pagoda dogwood (Cornus alternifolia) ¤ Crusader® hawthorn (Crataegus crus-galli)  ¤  Lollipop® crabapple (Malus sp.)
