The spring dominants have largely disappeared and offered their space to the bold, luxurient summer blossoms of cardinal flower, great blue lobelia, blue and purple asters, black-eyed susan, Silphium, spikenard, milkweed and Coreopsis. Magnolia macrophyllum (bigleaf maple, Aesculus pavia (dwarf red buckeye), and allspice have filled their containers along with other trees and shrubs, such as redbud, winterberry holly, sweetspire and summersweet. Verdant Christmas ferns, along with ostrich, royal, and wood ferns grace the forest floors and glens of our area. For those small, shady places, maidenhair ferns, common, ebony and black spleenworts make a delicate statement. Plant spicebush (Lindera benzoin) and hollies now for bright red fruits in the autumn. We have them in containers for sale and easy transplant into your yard.
Stop by for a sampling of native Rhododendrons, dogwoods, redbuds, viburnums, elderberies, hydrangea, hazelnuts, maples, oaks, bottlebrush and red buckeyes, and other woody plants ready for planting. All are very nicely grown and will be ready to go home to your garden. We have native species redbuds as well as some interesting cultivars, like 'Ruby Falls', 'Forest Pansy', 'Ace of Hearts' and The Rising Sun'. Mountain mints, bee balms, bergamots and lobelias and Joe Pye Weeds are dancing in balmy breezes with their summer blooms!
