Our Nursery is Bursting with Color – Come See What We Have!

With fingers and toes crossed we are hopeful that we are moving into warmer days. And you know what that means……..time to get out there and get dirty! Today we had several trucks arrive with new stock. So many beautiful annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs. The nursery is bursting with color so please stop by and see what we have. You can always count on Kingsdene for your gardening needs, from shovels to shrubs. Don’t forget to take a stroll around the gift shop, filled with lots of houseplants and other goodies.

Bearded Iris and Lupines Are Now in the Nursery

A welcome sign of Spring and warmer temps. Bearded Iris and Lupines are now available in the nursery. The Iris are blooming now and the Lupines are almost there. This year we have some really wonderful varieties of Iris, including Zooboomafoo and Puddy Tat, both of the dwarf variety. Aqua Taj, Rock Star, and Synergy are also available with varying bloom times.
 
Lupines this year include Beefeater, which is a stunning red. Blacksmith will bloom in a glorious blue shade. Towering Inferno blooms in a sizzling reddish orange with yellow highlights. Sure to “spark” interest in your garden. Perfect for an area with full sun. Because they are not yet in full bloom we don’t have photos readily available but feel free to Google the names and you will see just how gorgeous they are.
 
Stop in and let us help you plan your garden with some really amazing and colorful plants.

Consider a Camellia as a Mother’s Day Gift!

“April Kiss” Camellia looking lovely in the nursery today. One of Spring’s early bloomers, beautiful flowers against dark green glossy foliage. This shrub does best in partial shade to shade and would do well in a sheltered location. Consider a Camellia as a Mother’s Day gift, one your Mom will enjoy for years! Other varieties available.

The Newest Addition to Our Gift Shop: Chlorophytum Orchidastrum Fire Flash

Look at the latest addition to arrive in the gift shop. A colorful, easy to care for “Chlorophytum orchidastrum Fire Flash”. Not super fussy, likes medium to bright indirect light and humidity so it would be happy sitting on a tray of pebbles that are kept consistently moist. This handsome plant will brighten your space with its color and tropical feel. Planted in one of our new pieces of pottery it will surely get compliments and smiles! (Note – the larger plant in the ceramic pot is not the size we have, just a representation of how the plant will look as it grows).
