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.

Kingsdene Nursery & Garden Center Best of Baltimore 2022

This charming gem of a nursery is in all ways the opposite of a big box shop. For starters, they grow much of their own stock. Small in size, Kingsdene is prized by serious plantspeople, particularly for its selection of trees and shrubs. A small business that distinguishes itself through exceptional customer service, it’s not uncommon for staffers to forage in a dense sea of plants to find the best-looking specimen for their customers. They also stand behind their plants, offering a one-year warranty on many trees and shrubs.

Pulmonaria “Trevi Fountain” in Our Perennial Section

Always a welcome visitor 🐝 on the Pulmonaria “Trevi Fountain” in our perennial section. We love this colorful Spring bloomer, a boost of early season color with striking foliage. Full to part sun, cobalt blue flowers, average water needs, a pollinator favorite!
