Labor Day Special
|Three Perennial Groundcovers|
$7.19 – 1 gallon
STARTS THIS FRIDAY!
We have three gorgeous groundcovers on sale thru Thursday – all evergreen and perennial. They are lovely when spilling into a pathway, on the edge of a flowerbed, or filling in a bank.
‘Angelina’ Sedum becomes tinged with fall tones as the weather cools and does well in drier settings. Dianthus ‘Firewitch’ grows into a silvery carpet sprinkled with hot pink flowers. Vinca ‘Bowles’ does well in sun or shade and sports periwinkle flowers in spring.
Take advantage of this great price while supplies last thru Thursday, Sept. Sept. 5.
Southern Bush Honeysuckle
|Diervilla sessilifolia 'Butterfly'|
$20.99 - 3 gallon
Native to the southern Appalachians - Southern Bush Honeysuckle has trumpet-shaped fragrant yellow blooms in summer, followed by small oblong fruits, and foliage that sometimes takes on an attractive purple color in fall. The flower nectar has a honey-like taste. Attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, and pollinators.
Plant Diervilla in full sun to part shade. Cut back in late winter for best flower production. Spreads underground, but is not considered invasive. Deciduous. 3-5’ tall x 3-5’ wide. Zone 5-8. Locally grown! Limit 3 per customer while supplies last thru Thurs, Sept. 5.
|FROM WILMA: One of the most enthusiastic gardeners I know is Tanya (you know her from our perennial department). She is constantly adding plants to her garden as well as creating new areas. She is excited about using native grasses after hearing presentations about them at Asheville's Speaking of Gardening Symposium and The Perennial Plant Association National Symposium she recently attended in Chicago.|
‘Standing Ovation’ and ‘The Blues’ are little bluestem grass cultivars. While attractive in summer they are at their best in fall when their reddish/orange foliage is combined with perennials like Joe Pye Weed including ‘Little Joe’ and ‘Chocolate’, goldenrod ‘Fireworks, penstemon, and echinacea. One of Tanya’s favorite grasses is big bluestem grass ‘Blackhawks’ which has burgundy - almost black - fall foliage. It is especially striking when combined with ‘Pink Frost’ variegated Joe Pye Weed.
Pink muhly grass is beginning to show color. These and many other grasses not only add beauty and interest to your landscape but also provide food and shelter for birds and other wildlife. Now is the time to plant them so they become established before winter.

Stashing Blooms for Winter
Fall is for planting, and also for buying your spring blooming bulbs before they sell out! As you are making your selection, purchase enough for forcing indoors to enjoy the joy of spring in the depths of winter.
HOW: Once the weather cools off, I round up an assortment of terra cotta and ceramic pots, fill them with potting soil and a mixture of tulips, crocus, narcissus, and grape hyacinths. Then I dig a trench in my garden, long, and deep enough to sit the pots into, fill the soil in around the pots, and let them chill.
After the holidays, I begin bringing them indoors, a few at a time, rinse the pot off, add some moss to the top, water it...and Viola! Spring begins to show its warm smile! -Kathrine
