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 usually difficult to find at a mail order nursery. While most of these perennials do not attract butterflies or hummingbirds, they are garden-worthy and definitely on our list of attractive plants.
When available, we offer these perennials here: Perovskia atriplicifolia (Russian Sage),  Phlox paniculata (Garden Phlox),  Polemonium  (Jacob's Ladder),  Platycodon grandiflorus (Balloon Flower), Rodgersia (Roger's Flower), Rudbeckia triloba (Brown-eyed Susan), Sedum (Stonecrop), and Thermopsis (Carolina Lupine).

Note:  Headed toward retirement, we are going to dramatically reduce the number of plants we offer during the 2019 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. 

We ship perennials from May through October.
   We ARE permitted to ship plants to the following states within the USA:  Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin, and West Virginia. 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.
