Little Henry Sweetspire Now Available in the Nursery

Little Henry, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Meet Little Henry Sweetspire, Itea virginica. No muss or fuss with this one. Native to North America and pollinator friendly. Little Henry is a useful plant with lots of potential for your landscape. It prefers moist soils and will tolerate wet conditions. It will grow in full sun to full shade, and requires little pruning or other maintenance. Little Henry has lightly scented, pure white flowers that shoot like fireworks in the early summer. Looks great in a mixed border. Attracts butterflies and bees. Generally deer resistant. Grows 24 to 36″ in height and width, with a mounding habit. Just when you’re not expecting anything more, green summer foliage changes to a brilliant multitude of oranges and reds in the fall, making Little Henry a real stand-out. Available in 3 gallon containers in the nursery.

September is the Perfect Time to Transform Your Outdoor Space

September! A sure sign we are moving into another season. A season filled with โ€œrenewals and refreshesโ€, and a great time for a little โ€œR & Rโ€ for your garden and landscape. From plantings to patios, Kingsdene can transform your outdoor space and now is the perfect time. Give us a call at 410-343-1150 to schedule a consultation but donโ€™t delay as our landscape schedule fills up quickly.


St. John’s Wort Now Available in the Perennial Section of the Nursery

Oh my heart be still! โค๏ธ We love this St. Johnโ€™s Wort , Hypericum primo โ€œGrandeurโ€ for not only itโ€™s unique beauty but it pairs so well with others. We like it with coneflowers, salvia, and grasses. A late summer display that carries into fall, lovely green foliage with small cheery yellow flowers and striking red berries. Has a low spreading shrub like habit. Prefers morning sun and afternoon shade. Deer and bunnies tend to ignore this one (but you just never know with those rascals!) Available in the perennial section of the nursery.

Echinacea Available in Our Perennial Area

We have a nice selection of Echinacea available in our perennial area. We especially like this one, Sombrero Lemon Yellow. This happy colorful coneflower would transition seamlessly as our gardens move into another season. Long lasting blooms from Summer to the first frost. Combined with other Fall like colors and you have a instant garden refresh! Bonus – Pollinators love coneflowers!

Nursery is Cleaned Up After the Storms and Ready for Visitors!

We hope everyone is recovering well from the storm! The nursery is cleaned up and ready for shopping! However, Comcast has informed us that there will be intermittent service to Kingsdene until July 20. This means phone lines are down and the ability to process credit cards is also down. Also, we cannot access emails. As always, we still accept cash or check. Come in and see us if you cannot get in touch through technology!
For any of our neighbors still without power, please feel free to come fill up your pots, buckets, or what have you to take care of basic necessities (and plants!).

We Restocked Our Perennial Tables!

Happy Friday and what a good day it is! We have restocked our perennial tables and here is just a small sampling of what we have to offer. Itโ€™s not to late to plant and enjoy, thereโ€™s still plenty of sunny ๐ŸŒž warm days ahead.
