Indoor Plants

As we spend more time indoors due to rain and colder weather, with fewer open windows, indoor plants can add greenery and health to our environments. Indoor plants, aka houseplants, are known to remove toxins and help improve our indoor environments.

Pothos (below), with its cascading green from a hanging basket, is recognized as a powerful plant for tackling formaldehyde. It’s a fast-growing vine whose foliage comes in green and variegated degrees of white and green.

(Below), also known as devil’s ivy, Pothos is an easy houseplant to grow in many indoor conditions. Interestingly, it stays green even when kept in the dark.

(Below) Dracaena is another great plant for combating pollutants associated with varnishes and oils. The Warneckii grows easily indoors, even without direct sunlight. With striped leaves forming clusters atop a thin stem, this houseplant can be striking, especially if it reaches its potential height of 12 feet.

(Below) Chinese Evergreen is another easy-to-care-for plant that can help filter out a variety of air pollutants and removes more toxins as time and exposure continues. It is a very adaptable plant that does well even in low light. It also tolerates dry air better than most other house plants.

Japanese Maples Have Arrived!

We’ve just received our first shipment of the year of Japanese Maples and you’ll want to come in to see our selection. These prized trees add stunning color to the landscape.

(Below) One of our favorite Japanese Maples is Coral Bark (Sangokaku). Its brilliant coral bark is its most known feature but its foliage is gorgeous, too, offering striking red-edged green leaves in spring that turn brilliant apricot-gold with a touch of red in fall. Young wood exhibits strongest color.

Japanese Maple trees are known for their foliage, and add grace and beauty to the garden. Most have an exquisitely layered, cascading form, an elegant, fine leaf texture, and remarkable fall color. Japanese Maples come in a variety of leaf colors, including yellow-green, purple, red, bronze, and variegated leaves.

Planted as an ornamental tree throughout the United States, they are native to Korea, China and Japan. The Japanese Maple was introduced to the United States in 1820 and its maple-like leaves give it its common name.

A deciduous tree, here are some photos:

Cool-Season Bedding Plants

Cool-season bedding plants thrive during winter and keep flowerbeds looking attractive. But they needn’t be thought of as just for winter or even spring since some bloom into spring: Pansy, Dianthus, Alyssum, Viola, Calendula, Stock, Diascia, Nemesia, and Lobelia.
