Some late summer planting...

So we’ve been kinda bad about blogging this year - it’s been crazy busy for us! But we promise to get better about posting!

To kick off our return to the blog, we wanted to share some of the new plants we got in this week - perfect for fixin’ up our place ahead of Labor Day weekend! Check out the photos below of some great late summer options...

Echeveria Topsy Turvy

Echeveria ‘Topsy Turvy’ has one of the coolest color combos ever, plus a really unique foliage shape! Low water, can take full sun to slight shade and you can get lots of plants from cuttings on this one!


Calibrachoa Coral Berry Punch with some Imperata Red Baron in the background...both pretty drought tolerant and great for color!

Sedumn Autumn Fire

Sedum Autumn Fire looking nice! Low water, drought tolerant, great in any landscape!


We have some crazy bright, cheery Dahilas in right now! Every yard should have some!


Gaura Siskiyou Pink - drought tolerant, low water, hardy, great addition to any garden for some unusual, cool color! Native.


Sedums! We love 'em in all there great shapes and colors. EASY to grow and low water!

 Saliva Chamaedryoides and Calibrachoa Million Bell Yellow

Saliva Chamaedryoides and Calibrachoa Million Bell Yellow. And our old Ford pick up truck! We love this color combo!

Scleranthus biflorus "Australian Astroturf"

Scleranthus biflorus "Australian Astroturf". SERIOUSLY cool. No, seriously! A moss for sun and low water, for reals! More info here. Buy it. Put it in a pot on your porch. It's soooo cute!

Metrosideros Springfire

Metrosideros Springfire. We love these - the color is amaaaazing. This one is in a five gallon patio tree size. Austrailian natives, they are TOUGH and can generally take heat pretty well, are known too for being good in coastal areas.

Carex, Phormium and Echeveria Afterglow

That cool looking purple plant? Echeveria After Glow one of our all time favorites! It's surrounded by Phormium and Carex grasses.


Coreopsis Sweet Dreams is a pink twist on the yellow garden classic.

Front display - re-using old pallets!

We are getting creative with old pallets...

So come in and see us! We gotta lot of cool plants in right now! You can also check out more photos here!
