Special Notice: We will have to close the nursery from Tuesday 9/26 thru Friday 9/29 for repairs and improved parking. We will still respond to phone calls and emails. We are sorry for the inconvenience. We look forward to seeing you after that!
Due to lower temperatures, and reduced water loss from plants (transpiration), fall is a most opportune season for installing those plants that you have been longing for. There are some beautiful perennials in flower right now, from asters to Pysostegia to turtleheads. We have a nice assortment of native Rhododendron, dogwoods, redbuds, viburnums, elderberies, spicebush, hazelnuts, Rudbeckias, Physostegia, maples, oaks, bottlebrush and red buckeyes, and other plants ready for planting. All are very nicely grown and ready to go home to your garden. White flowering and pink dogwoods, and Appalachian Snow varieties are still available. We have native redbuds as well as 'Forest Pansy', 'Ruby Falls' and 'Rising Sun'. Our seed grown asters, ferns, woodland poppies, mountain mints, lobelias, bee balms, and other wildflowers are ready to go.
The ambient temperatures are basically telling us that autumn has arrived, but there is still lots of time to plant and to enjoy the beauty of our native flora. Newly installed plants will grow roots until the soil temperature reaches about 40 degrees Fahrenheit, so plant now and give your garden a leg up for the coming spring!
Our address is 5200 West Heaps Road, Pylesville, MD 21132.
