Our new 'Plant Index' page lists all the plants we expect to have available for the 2019 shipping season.

On this page, we offer a lot of highly desirable flowering shrubs. If you prefer to purchase small plants over large, full grown specimens (saving money and watching them grow to maturity), check these plants out. Included are some of the most beautiful blooming bushes available to gardeners. Some of these shrubs attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and/or honey bees. 
In the process of reducing inventory (nearing retirement), we will not be restocking flowering shrubs. Once they are gone, they are gone.
Update: As of May 16, all of our flowering shrubs are sold out. Sorry.
