The sizzle of summer is here, and we have the plants that will add gorgeous color to your landscape, including the dazzling Daylily (below). Daylilies bloom from late spring until fall, are drought tolerant, adaptable to a variety of soil and light conditions, and have relatively few pest and disease problems.
(Below) It’s Dinnerplate Dahlia time! These highly prized beauties are a showstopper. Ask CJ, Steve, Laurie or Roger for assistance. They can help you decide where to plant, what soil amendments to add to give your plants the best start possible and determine what you can plant in a container.
(Below) The Susans of the plant world deliver stunning color from a vine. Plant the Black-Eyed Susan on a trellis, pergola, archway, fence or stake it in a pot. It is a quick-growing vine whose flower typically has a dark center. These plants thrive in full sun.
(Below) Looks like cast stone, doesn’t it?! The good news is these cast stone and fiber pots are half the weight of their heavy counterparts. We’ve just received more new styles to add to our collection. Stop in today to see all of the great new colors and styles.
(Below) Our design team is always ready to provide assistance. Here, CJ helps a customer choose some pots from the brightly colored Asian pottery collection. Consult Laurie, CJ, Roger and Steve any time you have a question.
(Below) Orange Agastache combines with salvia to create a colorful display. Agastache flowers from late spring to fall.
(Below) Ruby Red Seedless Grapes are the way to go! Enjoy some flavorful homegrown grapes this summer and taste how good fruit can really be.
My favorite new toy for gardening is this collapsible gardening bag. It’s lightweight and folds up, and I use it as I wander through my garden, collecting tree leaves, pine tree needles, weeds I’ve pulled and the like.
(Below) Our demonstration gardens have yielded quite a haul! This bounty includes fresh-picked corn, tomatoes and banana peppers. These will be great on the barbecue grill.
(Below) Our vegetable and herb section is the best around, offering a nice diversity of savory seasonings and veggies. Grow your own lettuce and chives and other herbs to add to your meals.
(Below) Summer means Bougainvillea, with its colorful bracts that draw the eye. This popular plant comes in bush form or as a vine, depending on the variety, and is frequently seen cascading over trellises, entry ways and fences. It does best in very bright full sun. Once established, Bougainvillea has very low water needs.
A recent delivery of pottery brought this unique pot that seemed to fit perfectly in our South African native plant section. Check out our “native plant” sections showcasing drought-tolerant perennials from Australia, California and South Africa.
