ASTERS | SALE 20% OFF

Asters help define late summer, on the roadsides, in the meadows, or in our gardens. With daisy blooms of blue, purple, white or pink, in various heights, asters are butterfly magnets. Mostly for sun, there are several that are happy in part-shade, self-sowing and spreading at the edges of your pathways. Most of our asters are native or hybrids of native species. The butterflies like that.

CONEFLOWERS | SALE 20% OFF

Coneflowers Echinacea – With an amazing choice of new varieties, there are Echinacea in nearly all colors but blue. Butterflies love them as much as we do. Plant them in full sun or in part sun in very well drained soil. And now a hint to help your coneflower root out strongly to make it through the first winter – Plant now, enjoy the flowers for a few days, and then cut off the flowering stems (maybe put them in a vase to enjoy).

Trees & Shrubs
rose of sharon

ROSE OF SHARON | SALE 1/3 OFF

Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus) – Blooming for weeks in the summer, Rose of Sharon flowers come in shades of pink, white, and lavender-blue – usually with a red eye in the center. Plant in a sunny spot and fertilize regularly. They are easy to take care of and long-lived. Their only drawback is the propensity for some to set seed and volunteer their babies whether you want them or not. Rest assured, though, that they are easy to remove and don’t seem to be invasive in wild areas.

BUTTERFLY BUSH | SALE 1/3 OFF

Butterfly Bush (Buddleja) – The flowers of this long-blooming, fragrant shrub are available in several terrific colors, blue-violet, purple, pink, magenta, white or yellow. And as the name indicates they are a great magnet (and nectar source) for butterflies. Plant these shrubs in a sunny location that has well-drained soil, and prune them back hard each March to freshen them up.
