As we move our plants out of our cold frames, we are open by appointment, but will open with regular hours on March 30th.
Winter is fading from view and buds are beginning to swell. The Virginia bluebells, wood poppies and bloodroots are emerging from dormancy and will soon be anointing our woods with color and joy. Dodecatheon, woodland and moss phlox, turkscap lilies and birdsfoot violets will be soon to follow.
Native dogwoods, with resilient varieties such as ‘Appalachian Snow’, ‘Appalachian Spring’ and ‘Appalachian Blush’ are ready for sale! Mountain mints, bee balms, lobelias and Joe Pye weeds will soon be emerging and their flowers will grace the summer breezes. We have a nice assortment of native rhododendrons, maples, oaks, red and bottlebrush buckeyes, and other plants ready for planting. Boneset, thoroughwort, asters, ferns, blue lobelia, spikenard, Aruncus, and other wildflowers are ready for your garden, meadow or woodland! Winterberry holly, clethra, Itea, Viburnum nudum, Leucothoes, black and red chokeberry and inkberry holly are all looking nice!

We have many botanic delights from which to choose, many of which are not on our website! Come by to see, learn and enjoy.
Native wildflowers, trees and shrubs are in decline, but you can help them to recolonize the landscape by integrating them into your landscape.
