In honor of Earth Day, we will have an Open House this weekend. We will offer nature walks at 9 AM and 3 PM on Saturday and Sunday to discuss native plants, planting requirements and the natural environment, in general. We might see hawks, geese, beavers or a variey of other wildlife. Additionally, should you see something that you like, all purchses over $25 will be %10 off.
Soil temperatures are finally rising, and spring ephemerals, like Stylophorum diphyllum (wood poppy), Sanguinaria canadensis (bloodroot) and Mertensia virginiana (Virginia bluebells) are emerging from their winter beds. We have them in containers for sale and easy transplant into your yard. The blue and yellow look great together, and they will expand their domain as both are deer resistant. The buds are swollen on Acer rubrum (red maple), Magnolia macrophyllum (bigleaf maple) and Aesculus pavia (dwarf red buckeye), their vernal exuberance on display along with many other trees and shrubs..
Stop by for a sampling of native Rhododendrons, dogwoods, redbuds, viburnums, elderberies, spicebush, 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 We are digging buckeyes, persimmons and redbuds for transplanting into pots, and some will be availble bare root if you are interested . Ferns, bloodroot, wild ginger, columbine, Phlox subulata (creeping phlox) and wood poppy are ready; and the milkweeds, asters, lilies, lobelias and bee balms are making ready for their summer blooms!
