Plants keep arriving as we get ready for spring, which, in some ways, already feels like it’s here, in spite of El Nino. Our store entrance is lined with spiraling Junipers and blooming Hardenbergia, (below), in a luscious purple and pristine white. The Hardenbergia vine is a climber that will bloom now through spring. It is good in sun or light shade in inland areas and requires very little water once established.

(Below) Lavender has arrived in five- and one-gallon containers so you can plant more mature plants or smaller ones in a smaller garden or landscape area that calls for a smaller scale. Here, our Garden Design Expert Miguel checks on a variety name.
California natives are in now, too. We have a great selection. Get them in the ground now so they can enjoy El Nino rain water and grow larger, thrive and bloom.
(Below) Winnifred Gilman Sage has low water requirements and thrives in full sun, producing an electric blue-violet flower. Its aromatic gray-green foliage is wonderful to smell year-round.
(Above) Notice the Microsoft “tag.” You’ll find it on plant identification information throughout the garden center so you can scan and read more about the plant online.
(Below) Australian Tea Trees are another new addition to the garden center this past week. They are in bloom with more buds forming. We have white in shaped compact bush and hedge sizing, as well as the darker magenta colored flowers on more wispy tall shrubby trees. Either the white or magenta can be shaped or allowed to grow into the habit you wish.
(Below) Colorful bedding plants continue to arrive almost daily as we gear up for spring. Pansies, Alyssum, Snapdragons, Iceland Poppies, Bacopa, Geraniums, and Cyclamen are just some of the bedding plants available now.
