Some new arrivals from today...

We've got some new arrivals to show off: 

 Acanthus hungaricus - really cool leaf shape and blooms.

 Astilbe 'Visions' - love the color!

 Hypericum 'Tricolor' - the photo doesn't do it justice (camera is slightly broke!) but the leaves on this one have a great pink and green tone, and the yellow flowers really make it pop!

 Melianthus major - Honeybush is the common name. I LOVE this plant - I put one in my mom's yard a few years ago and it took over, but it looks soooo cool! I only brought one in, it's a five gallon - come and take it home with you!

 Rehmannia elata - Chinese Foxglove. Look at those blooms! You need this - quite easy to grow!

 Houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon' - one of my favorites for low growing, shade areas - great color!

 Calandrina spectabilis - you know this one, click the link to see what it looks like when in bloom, then stop in and pick one up. Best part is you can easily grow more plants from cuttings. 

 Gunnera chilensis - coolest most amazing plant ever. I mean, maybe we are a little obsessed with this plant even... Needs lots of water and shade; give it that and a little room to grow,  and you'll have a straight up prehistoric looking amazing plant in your yard! Usually we only have them in larger five gallon sizes, but these guys are in ones!

 Stokesia 'Klaus Jellito' - I don't think we've ever had these before, but they are super cool, reminding us of pincushion/Scabios, but with a more 'wildlflower' type of feel to them. Said to attract butterflies, and is pretty drought tolerant once established.

 Hibiscus syriacus 'Tosca' - this is not your neighbors hibiscus! Check out the bloom here.

 Gallardia 'Burgundy' - we love these: tough, colorful, and will come back better each year.

Salvia apiana - there has been a real interest in white sage lately. This native plant has a great history and lore about it - check out the story here.

I love the Chinese foxgloves. I haven't had any kind of foxgloves in my garden for SO long, I miss them!
