Perhaps you want to take care of migrating Monarch butterflies. Maybe you want to attract…
Well, I could say "EVERYTHING!". But, I'll narrow it down for you.
Japanese Maples. Every home lucky enough to have some shade should have at least one Japanese Maple. Feed with Espoma Holly-tone and it'll offer gorgeous color spring, summer and fall. Right now, my personal favorites are 'Coral Bark' and 'Bloodgood' (above). The color on these is gorgeous!
Roses. Right now, most of the roses are blooming. Get them in the ground this weekend and you'll still be able to enjoy the color. Especially if you plant any of the Knockout Series in red, pink and yellow. These are some tough roses that need minimal maintenance. Our best recommendation for all roses is to amend the soil with at least 2 bags of Vital Earth Ready Rose Mix and feed with NHG Organic Rose Food. Prune around Valentine's Day (we always offer a class on pruning right before then).
Purple Perennials. Purple is such a glorious color in any garden. It's a great contrast alongside oranges and yellows. Or, plant with pinks and whites for a softer palette. Right now, the Society Garlic (above) is blooming gracefully. Perennial Verbena is glowing. And, the Scabiosa is exploding purple! I have planted and loved all three of these. They perform especially well in the drought tolerant garden.
Achillea. This is one of my favorite plants! The first year I had it in the garden it was not the graceful plant I had imagined. But, the next year and each year since, it has gotten fuller and bloomed bigger. 'Pomegranate' is absolutely gorgeous and in stock now. Lots of colors and varieties.
We have a huge selection of perennials and annuals for sun and shade. Plus, shrubs, fruit trees, herbs, vegetables, trees, vines. Whatever space in the garden you want to enjoy more, we'll help you get there. Open 7 days a week for you! Including at 8am on Saturdays.
