This spring has been one of the best that we can remember for cooler tempertures and excellent rainfall. Excellent conditions for newly planted natives! The summer solstice is just around the corner and nighttime temperatures are rising. Spring ephemerals, like Stylophorum diphyllum (wood poppy), Sanguinaria canadensis (bloodroot) and Mertensia virginiana (Virginia bluebells) are slowly yielding their space to summer dominants like wood aster, ostrich fern and Coreopsis. Magnolia macrophyllum (bigleaf maple, Aesculus pavia (dwarf red buckeye), and Lindera have filled their containers along with other trees and shrubs, such as redbud, winterberry holly, sweetspire and summersweet. Plant spicebush (Lindera benzoin) now for bright red fruits in the autumn. We have them in containers for sale and easy transplant into your yard.
Stop by for a sampling of native Rhododendrons, dogwoods, redbuds, viburnums, elderberies, spicebush, hazelnuts, maples, oaks, bottlebrush and red buckeyes, and other woody plants ready for planting. All are very nicely grown and will be ready to go home to your garden. We have native species redbuds as well as some interesting cultivars. Ferns, wild ginger, common milkweed in plugs and flats, Phlox subulata (creeping phlox) and wood poppy are ready; and asters, lobelias and bee balms are making ready for their summer blooms!
