|20% Off Oakleaf Hydrangea|
|Hydrangea quercifolia/Oakleaf Hydrangea|
'Gatsby Moon' and 'Gatsby Star'
$19.99 - 2 gallon
Two spectacular oakleaf hydrangeas! Gatsby Moon has full double flowers that age to green; Gatsby Star’s double flowers (similar to ‘Snowflake’) age to pink. The foliage of both add great texture to the garden, turning burgundy-red in fall. The showy blooms of this native plant are long lasting and the fall foliage color can be remarkable with exfoliating bark that adds winter interest.
Plant these beauties in part sun to full sun in moist well-drained soil. Oakleaf hydrangeas bloom on old wood so prune immediately after flowering when needed. 6-8’ tall and 6-8’ wide. Deciduous. Zone 5-9. Locally grown on our farm! While supplies last thru Thursday, Oct. 3.
Fall Celebration & Dedication
|Sat, Sept. 28|
40th Anniversary Fall Celebration
1 to 3 PM - We are still celebrating our 40th!
Join us on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 1-3 pm for hotdogs and mini-cupcakes to celebrate our 40th year in business. From our 1979 start in Wilma & Bill Penland’s front yard to our current Garden Center…it has been an exciting run.
Huge appreciation goes out to all the folks who have supported our family-owned business during the last 40 years and a big welcome to our esteemed new customers! We appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you!
2 PM - Pollinator Garden Dedication to Gerri
Please gather with us to honor Gerri Neville Cole in a heartfelt dedication of our Pollinator Garden to this very special person who recently passed away. Gerri Neville Cole worked for Reems Creek Nursery for 28 years and was a walking encyclopedia of plant knowledge. She mentored many staff members and is fondly remembered by all.
The potting shed where Gerri grew an abundant supply of flowers and vegetables was located exactly where our Pollinator Garden now sits. Appropriately, this special spot will be “coming up flowers” in honor of Gerri for decades to come.
|Watering Advice...It's Dry! |
|FROM WILMA: The weather has been extremely dry and your plants need water. Having been in the nursery/horticulture business for the past 40 years* we have experienced several droughts, many of which occurred in the fall. In looking back at notes from 1999, I found a list of watering priorities that should be followed now.|
A deep soaking once a week is more efficient that a small amount of water daily. Drip irrigation and soaker hoses are a good investment.
- Newly planted (within the last year) trees, shrubs, and perennials should be watered as a priority before well-established plants.
- Shallow-rooted ornamentals like dogwoods, azaleas, rhododendron, and blueberries dry quickly and should be watered on a regular basis.
- Large, valuable, and historic or specimen trees should be near the top of your watering list. Large oaks trees are particularly vulnerable to drought.
- Fall veggie plantings may be a top priority, too.
- Lawns tend to go dormant in dry periods and don’t need irrigation.
*Join us this Saturday, September 28 from 1-3 pm as we continue to celebrate our 40th Anniversary!

|Tradescantia ‘Sweet Kate’ & ‘Blue Stone’|
$8.99 – 1 gallon
The elusive blue flower! Spiderwort is an easy-to-grow native perennial that attracts pollinators, tolerates black walnut, and will tolerate “wet feet”. Sweet Kate’s purple flowers are set off by her bright yellow-green foliage. Blue Stone has periwinkle-colored flowers and soft green foliage.
Tradescantia has numerous flower buds that open for one day only. Extend you bloom time by deadheading once all the buds in each cluster have bloomed.
Plant in full sun to part sun. The yellow foliage of ‘Sweet Kate’ is best in full sun. Blooms late spring to mid-summer. Zone 4-9. While supplies last thru Thursday, Oct. 3.
