My mother’s husband, Joe, used to work at Behnke’s in the ’70s and ’80s and went on to start his own wholesale nursery. He grows perennials and small shrubs for garden centers & landscapers.
Great news! Helmut Jaehnigen is doing great and is back walking around after a bad fall last May.
One would like to think that there never is a good time to cut down a tree. However, for this beautiful Norway Spruce that was given to us in 1985 by my grandfather, Albert Behnke time was up.
If you tend to shop for plants only in spring, you might find that your garden looks a little sad come fall. Here are a few of our favorites that will make your garden look good throughout the year.
Winter can be a bleak time in your garden, full of brown twigs and dead leaves. Before that time comes, consider these plants with eye-catching winter color and texture.
As fall leaves start to drop, you may realize that you can see too much of your neighbors. Or that the view out a window looks lifeless. These lush evergreens will solve both problems!
If you could only plant two shrubs, let these be them! Combined, they'll give you a variation in growth habit and color from spring through fall.
These are two of the most hardworking shrubs we carry. Each features loads of flowers, striking fall colors, ease of care and good deer resistance.
Loved for their colorful leaves and arresting flowers, these small trees/large shrubs have been favorites by gardeners who have the space for them. But with new smaller varieties, anyone can have one!
With summer blooms that are attractive to pollinators and to behold, these shrubs deserve a spot in your garden.
