Tag Archives: Perennials


This is a good time to visit the nursery to see how beautiful the summer garden can be. These drought tolerant and deer resistant perennials also create a “nectar bar” for the bees, hummingbirds and butterflies.



Hanging Baskets for Spring

Beautiful, colorful hanging baskets are arriving weekly from our growers. A well grown hanging garden is a work of art involving a careful selection of plant varieties and combinations, nurtured with care for your enjoyment.

March Featured Plant: Bleeding Heart

The old fashioned Bleeding Heart, Dicentra spectabilis, is super easy to grow It is deer-resistant, fragrant, and has exquisite flower structure. It was one of the favorites in Grandma’s garden! Grows well in shade, goes dormant in the heat of summer, and is a charming early bloomer. We have many flowering perennials…stop by and see what’s new!
