Perennials 2019 Availability Page

Nepeta With Bee Hemerocallis/Daylily Heliopsis 'Sunstruck'
As an incentive for you familiarize yourself with our plants, by looking through the Shrubs and Perennials Availability Pages, I'll take 15% off the price of those that make it to your wish-list when you shop on Fabulous Fridays and continue through May to offer daily discounts on full trays of perennials. Customers liked that we had grouped together full trays of perennials for full sun, part-shade, and full shade into combo-trays, so we will continue to offer those again this season to include a wider range of varieties and available for that wish-list. Perennials are removed from this page as they sell out.

Colten's Pic Of Deer In The Shade

Deer-Resistant
Deer move freely through our landscape. We both have that same "What are you doing in my yard?" expression when we see each other. 
If you face a similar situation, look for the NO DEER symbol to minimize frustration.

A plant's growth is dependent on its genetic characteristics, cultural practices, and regional climate. Descriptions include; the plant's mature height (HT) and spread/spacing (SP); to figure out numbers needed.  

Upright; the plant will be taller than it is wide. Best to use towards the back or center. 

Mounding; the plant will be about as wide as it is tall. These plants work well towards the center or front.

Sprawling; spreading out from basal stems. Allow plenty of room for these plants as they mature.

Groundcover; spreading to infinity and beyond. Many groundcovers also have viable seeds adding additional spread.

Regional bloom time; for continuous color throughout the changing seasons.

Thanks go to Walters Gardens and Ball Hort for providing pictures for us to use on this website. 

Ladybug with Eggs Ladybug Larvae Adult Ladybug

Ladybugs (eggs to larvae to adult) thrive in healthy gardens. You can buy them and release them, but it's the plants that naturally induce, sustain, and keep them in the gardens. Several years ago I stopped spraying pesticides in and around the gardens. It struck me as being slightly psychotic to plant a landscape that attracts birds, bees, and beneficials into my landscape and then turn around and use chemicals that harm them.

Garden designs have moved from foundation to curb since they are often viewed from inside the home. Mixed gardens that include shrubs, perennials, and annuals provide a screen from roadways and allows us to enjoy the gardens from inside looking out as well as from a deck or patio and give homeowners a sense of privacy. After all, wouldn't you rather look at a colorful garden than a roadway?

HT:18" SP:14" Upright, Blooms Late-Spring to Early Summer

Phlox are popular, long-lived plants for the full sun to part-shade garden. Prefer amended soils and ample water at the base rather than overhead so flowers don't "shatter" and drop prematurely.

Groundcover/Herb; Both Bloom Late Spring

Wooly, deep-olive foliage is covered with an abundance of salmon-pink flowers. Great choice as paver fillers, to soften garden edges, and as a ground cover between other full sun, xeric perennials and shrubs.

Like many herbs, 'Mother of Thyme' deters deer when planted in front of less-resistant perennials since deer seldom step to reach behind plants they don't like.
