Located in Stockton, California, King Island Growers is the tree and shrub growing grounds for Pacific Nurseries.
Here, we have a very large variety of tree and shrub specimens that do well in the warm Summer weather of the Central Valley. For those of you that have never been to this part of California, the climate is dramatically different than the frequent fog and marine air that is prevalent at our costal Colma Growing Grounds.
Options from the central valley.
So if you’re looking for a special specimen or plant size that we don’t have in Colma, chances are we just might have it on hand in Stockton at our King Island facility.
And if don’t have it there, more than likely, one of our suppliers in our plant grower network will. Just ask one of our representatives and we can check on availability and pricing for any plant and size that your project requires.
Attractive specimens everywhere.
A few of these images below show some of the wide selection of specimens that we have on hand. We have acres and acres more to choose from.
Acer palmatum, ‘Inabe Shidare’
Acer palmatum, commonly called Japanese Maple, is a deciduous shrub or small tree that typically grows to 10-25′ tall. It’s native to Japan, Korea and China. Small reddish-purple flowers in umbels bloom in spring followed by winged samaras in pairs which ripen in September-October. Fall color includes an often spectacular combination of shades of yellow, red, purple and bronze.
Ginkgo is a tall, hardy tree native to eastern China. The medium-sized, fruitless maidenhair tree, ‘Saratoga’, is distinguished by its dense branching and upright, rounded crown. In fall, its yellow-green, fan-shaped leaves turn bright yellow. And in winter its stark, deeply furrowed, grayish tan bark and knobby branches add additional landscape interest. Ginkgo is best grown in full to partial sun. It will thrive in most well-drained soils but grows best in acid to neutral soil that’s evenly moist and fertile.
