Colorscapes is open for the season. Hours are:
8-4 Monday-Saturday, closed on Sundays through April.

Our Weekly Special for April 20th-25th includes all Salvias.

Salvia 'May Night' HT:24" SP:18" Upright
and 'Blue Marvel' HT:12" SP:12" Mounding
Both bloom late spring-early summer $4

Salvias are amongst the easiest of perennials to grow. Their dense spikes of dark purple flowers on sturdy stems rise above the foliage. Well-known for not just deer resistance, but to repel them. A favorite of honeybees and bumblebees through spring. May re-bloom if deadheaded. 'May Night' is a PPA award winner and one that we have enjoyed in the gardens for decades. 'Blue Marvel' is new for us...gee, what a great name!

The annual Salvias including 'Hot Lips' and 'Wendy's Wish' are also included with our Weekly Special. Both are in 4" pots @$4. Because they're annuals, these Salvia will need to be protected from temps falling below 30°.

Colorscapes Greenhouse and Nursery specializes in garden and landscape plants for Northern Nevada and has been proudly serving Elko, Spring Creek, Winnemucca, Carlin, Wells, and all points in between since 1991. Although we are not a mail-order greenhouse, we know that many experienced, new to the area, and just getting started gardeners like to come out with a list of possibilities. Our Availability List Pages provide pictures and cultural information about the plants we plan to offer; annuals will be posted in March. Thanks go out to our gracious clientele that have continued their support over the years. We also saw lots of new faces and hope that you too will be back to shop next season. It is always a pleasure to be around happy, smiling people who love to be around plants, enjoy gardening, and share my enthuasium for both.

Garden rejuvenation.

Garden and landscape projects are a continuous effort to develop and improve our outdoor living spaces. Before and after pictures are a way of remembering the event. Start with a plan, even for those weekend projects, and keep at it to the finish. Basically, any advice I can share about developing a landscape is on our Marvel's Corner Page.
Our long-term goals continue to be:
  • To educate customers so they can be successful, confident gardeners.
  • To provide healthy plants that are grown in and for this area.
