Many gardeners love Japanese maples for the beauty, elegance and strength they bring to the landscape. Japanese maples are a group of plants that have one of the greatest ranges of use and beauty of any plant in use today. The diversity of size, color, form, shape and utility is so great that a Japanese maple can fit almost any need. Their foliage color ranges from the bold greens, to orange, orange-red, maroon, shares of red and even purple. They can have big bold leaves, or they can have fine, delicate foliage. Their fall foliage can be bold and bright and their twigs and branches can have color and texture to add to your winter interest.
Brian Tsugawa has over 30 years experience in the Tsugawa Nursery retail garden center.
Celebrating 35-plus years, Tsugawa Nursery is a family-owned-and-operated business. The Tsugawa family began berry farming in Woodland in 1947. George and Mable Tsugawa were married in 1950 and raised six children. The Tsugawa family worked hard together to make their farm successful, initially growing strawberries. In January 1981, the Tsugawa family purchased a defunct nursery in Woodland. They opened Tsugawa Nursery in March of 1981 with very little nursery stock, but plenty of vision for things to come. The Nursery has grown and become well established as one of the area’s best places to shop for garden and landscape plants and supplies.
