Our gardens are pretty much bursting at the seams right now with plants! Among the very cool and unusual things we have available right now, you'll find HUGE selection of sedums and succulents and other plants that have amazing color and foliage and don't require much water.

The Aeonium family contains some of our favorite types of plants right now. These specimens have unusual color, unique shapes and textures and can blend well in a variety of settings. Check out more info on them here.

Montanoa grandiflora

Our Spring Garden Show 2008 Display

Johnnye Merle's Gardens is back at the Spring Garden show this year! We created a pretty rad 'Palm Springs mid century inspired' garden - come and check it out! The theme this year was green living - our garden features an awesome selection of agave's, sedums and succulents that don't require much water, and the landscape itself was constructed entirely from recycled materials - cinderblocks, old windows, and our infamous 'spaceship' 1950's umbrella!
