With summer in full swing, there are many plants you’re probably noticing now as you drive around. Purple Statice (below) is one of the plants that enjoys the full sun and heat of summer. Better yet, it’s drought-tolerant and makes an excellent cut flower.
Next time you visit us, make a point to check out our new Butterfly Friendly Plants section. Summer is a great time to plant a butterfly garden as the plants that attract butterflies are typically drought-tolerant and quite often will attract birds, bees, and hummingbirds, too. Our Garden Design Experts Steve, CJ, and Miguel can help you find plants that will do well in your garden conditions.
(Below) Buddleia, commonly known as Butterfly Bush, offers dazzling color for us and food for butterflies.
World’s First Dwarf Grape Is Here!
Pixie, the world’s first dwarf grapes are here, and we have them in several delicious varieties! Now you no longer need a lot of space to have homegrown grapes!
These gems mature at 18-24 inches tall and can be grown in small spaces, in the ground or in containers.
(Below) Another summertime favorite, the Dahlia makes a stunning statement with its gorgeous large flowers. Native to Mexico, this plant is related to other drought-tolerant plants–the sunflower, daisy, chrysanthemum, and zinnia. Great news: Dahlias can be grown in containers, so get some summer color going in your outdoor living areas!
(Below) Duranta is known for its profuse summer flowers and ornamental fruit. While the berries are not for humans, birds love them. Duranta makes a great border and comes in tree and shrub shapes, from small to large. Our stock includes Duranta on trellises, a great way to create an instant privacy shield.
When you visit the garden center, be sure to wander our entire plant section to see everything we have in stock. If you don’t see what you’re looking for ask one of our Garden Design Experts, Miguel, CJ, or Steve, for assistance.

Save Water: Mulch!
Just a three-inch layer of mulch can reduce your water usage by up to 30%. Our mulches are organic and we have a variety to choose from. Black Forest is a long-time favorite and Micro Bark is decorative and offers the wonderful aroma of the fir tree. Mulch should be used in garden beds and on lawns to reduce their need for water and keep them looking good, even while using less water!
(Below) Another way to use less water in the garden is to plant drought-tolerant specimens, and we have a huge selection of these water-wise plants.
