New stuff!

It's Friday, and despite the earlier rain showers, we got some awesome new plants in today! Check out some of what we got below...

Lithodora ‘Grace Ward’ is  cute little low grower, a 6 inch high powerhouse of long lasting blue blooms! It’s foliage almost reminds you of Rosemary - super cool! Does well in full sun to light shade and has low water needs - likes well drained soil. Spring and fall bloomer!

Achillea ‘Pink Grapefruit’: EVERY garden needs some yarrow! It’s cute, it’s hardy, it’s drought tolerant, and just look at that shade of pink!?!?

Calylophus drummondii: bright yellow and cheerful, this plant will do well in your tough, hot, dry spots. Drought like conditions? “Bring it on!” this lovely little plant says! Super cute too!

Convolvulus sabatius: this African native is better known as ‘ground Morning Glory’. It grows to about 2 feet high with trailing branches that give lavender-blue blooms from June to November! Great as both a groundcover AND in pots or hanging baskets!

Euphorbia Tiny Tim: we’ll admit it, we are a little biased in that we ABSOLUTELY TOTALLY LOOOOVE euphorbias! We think they are among some of the most awesome plants that are are in like, the whole wide world.

Rhodanthemum hosmariense might be a mouthful to say, but the cute, hardy, daisy like flowers are so so so cool! The silverly foliage  only adds to it all! We’ve long been in love with this plant...

Eryngium ‘Jade Frost’ - such amaaaaazing color! Better known as Sea Holly, Erynginum are just all around cool plants for your garden: unusual, hard to find, and really amazing blooms. Get one. Best decision you'll make all day, we promise.

Helleborus niger ‘Potter’s Wheel’: so, we’ve been on a bit of a helleborus kick lately. Justifiably, we think, as they are just such great plants all around. Give it a bit of shade and compost rich soil for best growth; this one is not a drought tolerant one...but so worth it!

Salvia ‘Hot Lips’ is one of our all time favorite salvias - you’ll find a large specimen of it that has been growing in our garden forever. Like all salvias, it’s super easy to grow, drought tolerant once established and a prolific bloomer!

And there are lots and lots and lots of other plants in our garden right now just waiting to go home with you! Visit us this weekend and see what inspires...
