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.
This little guy is definitely a “strike” and not a ”spare” , meet Mr. Bowling Ball Arborvitae. Unusual and attractive foliage this shrub will retain a compact globe shape with no pruning or trimming required. Adds a nice texture to your garden. Very low maintenance, great for a border. Available in the nursery in 3 gallon containers.

September! A sure sign we are moving into another season. A season filled with “renewals and refreshes”, and a great time for a little “R & R” 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 don’t delay as our landscape schedule fills up quickly.
Oh my heart be still! We love this St. John’s Wort , Hypericum primo “Grandeur” for not only it’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.
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!
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. It’s not to late to plant and enjoy, there’s still plenty of sunny warm days ahead.
Summer is beautiful when you stock up on our wonderful selection of summer blooming perennials!
It’s a beautiful weekend and you need to be at Kingsdene! Find some fresh patio color, blooming plants for the garden, and maybe something for Dad. Finish those mulching projects before the heat returns. We are open everyday from 9 to 5.
