Oriental Poppies

Get Them Now
before they bloom

It's hard to imagine that these fuzzy mounds of foliage will produce anything worth looking at, but trust us when we say that this plant will produce one heck of a beautiful flower.

Bright, papery flowers that just steal the show! Easy to grow, all these poppies need is sun and well-drained soil and you are all set. They go summer dormant but will come back next spring offering even more blooms, making them well worth the wait.

Rhododendrons, the gems of the woodland garden, they bring riots of color to the spring and early summer garden.

This spring, we have a great selection to suit your needs. Given protection from deer, part shade and well-drained soil, they'll settle-in happily for decades. If you prefer natives, we will have a couple local evergreen species and plenty of our deciduous native azaleas to add fragrance and wildlife benefit to your garden.

German Bearded Iris

German Bearded Iris
(container grown)

Although the season is early, and their leaves are just starting to come up, these deer-resistant sun-lovers will bloom their hearts out in May with abandon. Some varieties are re-blooming and will give you a second show in the fall when one last kick of bright color is much appreciated. Plant them early so they can be happily settled before the blooming commences.

prices start at $14.99

Tree Peonies

In white, red, yellow, maroon and pink, these blooms are larger than garden peonies and put on quite a show in mid to late May. Unlike garden peonies, tree peonies are small shrubs, so they do not require staking.

They will average around 3 foot tall although given time, they can grow larger. These plants are easy to grow, hard to find, and simply beautiful in bloom and out!
