New plants!

New arrivals are in our garden, and just waiting to go home with you! We just got a new stock of Annie's Annuals & Perennials on our shelves, as well as a HUGE selection of air plants. 

Check out some of our summer goodies:

Airplants

Have you tried out air plants yet? Easy to grow, fun, and super weird, they meet all of our requirements for an awesome plant. We have a big selection that just arrived last week - over 100 plants! Stop in and check them out!

Psoralea pinnata “Kool-Aid Bush”


This South African shrub or small tree is a a great choice to bring some height and interest to your garden. It reaches to about 12 feet in height, with dense soft needle like foliage - super cool.  It is said to bloom in it's first year, featuring bright lavender blue, sweet pea like flowers. And the name? The comes from the sweet scent of the blooms. Really fun, cool plant!

Asarina scandens ‘Sky Blue'

Asarina is a type of vine that is easy to grow, hardy, and comes in a variety of colors. The "Sky Blue" variety is one of our very favorites, though, and not one that we get in all that often! Fast growing, it reaches 8-10 feet in it's spread. It's great on a trellis, on a wall that needs coverage, or even a pot!


Crassula capitella “Red Pagoda”

This plant just looks so...geometric. Architectural. We LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Hardy, full sun, low water, great as a border plant or in a pot, and it blooms super cute white flowers in the summer time! 

We, of course, have much more than this in stock right now. Come on in and check us out - we are open every day from 10am - 5pm.

We are spending the 4th holding a special celebration in appreciation of all of our awesome customers over the years! Country Roads is in our 23rd year of business, and Johnnye Merle’s just celebrated our 10th anniversary. All things said and done, the best part of what we do is getting to build relationships and friendships.
To celebrate, we decided to throw a 4th of July BBQ! We’ll have free hot (and veggie!) dogs, s’mores, & lemonade, store wide sales on all sorts of vintage goodies, free mini-flags to show your July 4th spirit, sunflower seed plantings for the kids, and special plant discounts! 

We are only going to be open from 10am - 3pm, so be sure to stop in during those hours, say hello, and take part in the celebration!

Thanks for all of the amazing support of the years! We hope to see you this weekend!

Milkweed

We finally have asclepias back in stock! Milkweeds, the common name for these plants, are popular as they attract butterflies and caterpillars (don't worry, the plant has mechanisms to grow back quickly as the caterpillars munch!) and are a great way to bring some nature into your own garden! As you can see in this photo, butterflies were already stopping in to say hello...
