Our new 'Plant Index' page lists all the plants we expect to have available for the 2018 shipping season.

   On this page we offer some perennial plants that make nice additions to the garden but are often difficult to find at a mail order nurseries. While most of these perennials do not attract butterflies or hummingbirds, they are attractive and definitely on our list of garden-worthy plants.
   When available, the following plants are offered on this page:  Helianthus (Perennial Sunflower),  Heuchera villosa 'Caramel'  (Coral Bells),  Hibiscus (Hardy Hibiscus), Leucanthemum x superbum 'Crazy Daisy' (Shasta Daisy),  Liatris spicata 'Floristan Violet' (Kansas Gayfeather),  , Limonium (Sea Lavender),  Lupinus 'Russell Hybrids' (Lupine),  Lysimachia clethroides (Gooseneck Loosestrife),  Nippananthemum nipponicum
(Montauk Daisy), Oenothera tetragona
(Sundrops), and more.

Note:  Headed toward retirement, we are going to dramatically reduce the number of plants we offer during the 2018 season. Plants on this page will not be restocked. Once they are gone, they are gone. If you wish to order plants from this page, I suggest you order early in the season. Later might be too late.

State and Federal regulations prohibit us from shipping to other destinations. If you do not live in one of the states we are permitted to ship to, please do not order. We will not ship your order and will charge you a $3.00 service charge to cancel your order and return your payment.
