Incorporate Bird Baths into Your Landscape

Splash Splash, birds taking a bath! Don’t forget our feathered friends during this unbearable heat. Did you know birds don’t sweat. They remove any excessive body heat via respiration. Water is a MUST for them during the hot humid months of Summer. Help the birds with one of our colorful birdbaths, including the always popular granite. A lovely addition to incorporate into your landscape! And birds taking a bath are always fun to watch 😊.

“Baby Joe” Pye Weed Available in Our Perennials

This little gem is loved by the pollinators, “Baby Joe” Pye Weed. A fabulous addition to those who are short on space in their landscape. Grows to a manageable 2-3’ tall and limits its spread. “Baby Joe” has attractive purple blooms that will add a sweet fragrance to your garden. It supplies butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees with vital nectar. “Baby Joe” really shines when planted in a grouping. Full to part sun, likes moist well-drained soil, generally deer resistant. Not yet in bloom but available now in perennials.

Fizzy Mizzy Available in the Nursery

“Fizzy Mizzy”, sounds like it should be a tropical 🍹 libation, right? “Fizzy Mizzy” is actually one of our all time favs. Also known as Itea virginica, or Sweet Spire, this NATIVE has a tidy upright growth habit with fragrant white flower spikes. “Fizzy Mizzy” attracts pollinators 🦋🐝, is generally deer resistant, grows approx. 2 to 3 feet high and wide with average water needs. Likes sun but will tolerate a shady location. All in all a good overall bet for your landscape. Available in the nursery.

Hydrangeas Available in the Nursery

A sea of color! Hydrangeas are long-lived shrubs that offer big colorful blooms throughout summer and into fall, when many other shrubs have completed their show. So many enticing shades of white, cream, pink, blue, and red. The big, rounded flower clusters make handsome dried arrangements. Hydrangeas can be quite the “show off” in your garden. Available in the nursery.

Roses Available in the Nursery

“A rose is a rose is a rose”, and they are all lovely. 🌹 We have drifts, old-fashioned, knock-outs, and the popular Brindabella™ series. All available in the nursery. {quote penned by Gertrude Stein}

Rhododendron Is One of Our Spring Favorites

It’s a Rhododendron revolution in the nursery! The beautiful flowers of one of our Spring favorites, “English Roseum” Rhododendron. Full shade to partial sun, evergreen, and a must have for the shady spot in your landscape.

Lilacs Blooming and Now Available in the Nursery

Just beginning to bloom and one of our favs, Miss Kim Lilac! A smaller more compact Lilac that boasts a highly fragranced flower. The foliage will take on a burgundy tinged color in the Fall to add extended interest into the late season garden. Great for a border or for lots of impact plant in a mass. Slow growing, full to part sun. Makes a great cut flower. Available in the nursery.
