Botany Warehouse


Botany Warehouse

Roots and saplings
Or ease of transplant

A hedge
A windbreak
Cornius mas

Spruce shrubs
Cherry trees
And maple leaves

Mountain ash
Grows columnal
Bright red in autumn

A monkey puzzle tree
Like a joshua
Its desert cousin
Grows spindly

Fruit buds in a warehouse
Bagged up in soil
And wet sawdust
Hardhats on wall hooks

Sprigs of bear grass
One-inch flowers
East pines
Hard to find

Elsewhere an alder
A vernal witch hazel
Pink lilacs
And wild white lotus

Noble firs more fit for snow
Beeches and birches
Bronze-colored bark
Tolerant to all weather

Clay flower pots
Fast growing
Pallets of plants
Will spread rapidly

Day dream rose
And scarlet ninebark
Flowering almond
Ornamental in fall

A purple smokebush
An apple bare lush
A maidenhair
And needly yucca tree

In the soil a spicebush
A walnut tree
A coffee sapling
Or chokeberry

Perchance a rosebud
A rare one
Out of season
And out of stock
