You need this plant!

We love this thing! Commonly referred to as 'Blue Chalk Sticks', Senecio is a great addition to any garden! It goes well in a tropical or cottage setting - providing great contrast to your other plants with both its unique gray-blue color and it's slender 'spikey looking' foilage. Takes full sun and little to moderate water, we have 'em in 4" and gallon sizes to meeting your gardening needs! Stop by and see us to check out how we've mixed it into several of our landscape designs!

Johnnye Merle's goes back to the 3rd grade!

We are very excited to begin launching our 'Gardens in Schools' programs! At Johnnye Merles, we believe in the importance of teaching about gardening and the environment to students of all ages - we couldn't be happier to be providing some very awesome 8 year olds with plants and other tools they need to start gardening at a young age!

We are also excited to expand our program to other sites, especially to schools in our own backyard here in Orange. If you would like more info on this program, feel free to contact us, and watch for updates from our young gardeners in the weeks to come!

Delphinium are one of Grandma Johnnye's most favorite of favorite plants. It's a great time of year to plant this cottage garden classic - it's tall spikes of flowers come in dark and light blue, white and even pink - and we have each color in stock right now!

4" containers are only $2.50 and color packs are $3.50.

Black Pansies are here!
